(en) Germany, (Reactionary) Media, Chaos in Cologne - Anarchists Seize Control of German City!

Date Sun, 21 Sep 2008 10:02:02 +0300

A planned peaceful demonstration against Cologne’s mega mosque has descended
into violence and mayhem due to the actions of thousands of ultra left wing
anarchists who have decentded on the German city from across Europe.---- Reports
are reaching us that freedom of movement in Cologne is just about nonexistent as
the left wingers block the streets and even the airport if early reports are
true. This has meant that speakers have not been able to get to the venue of
their peaceful rally, and indeed reports suggest that sound has been cut off
from the podium and people who wanted to express their concern about the mosque
have been told by police to go home.

This is a huge victory for mob rule and there are suggestions on the ground that
the police are deliberately letting the anarchists run amok. A heckler’s veto
has been applied and it seems that peaceful protest is no longer possible in
Europe and that freedom of expression is dead. Reports suggest that many of the
anti mosque protesters are old people who are concerned about the direction that
their country is being led, yet the film crews seem to be focusing on the few
groups of skin heads that are present - who knows whether or not the skin heads
have been planted to discredit the demonstration. No doubt the German news will
be dominated by far left propaganda and the concerns of the majority about
Sharia law and the erosion of freedom will be omitted.

It appears that the German authorities have yielded to their masters at the
Organisation of the Islamic Conference (OIC) and effectively stopped the
demonstration. It is as if there has been a silent coup d’etat with the enemies
of freedom now holding all the leavers of power. This is a sad day for
democracy, freedom and justice
