Europe has been besieged by radical Islamic terror in recent months, and a great many residents of the EU are blaming Angela Merkel for this predicament.
Merkel, who is currently campaigning as the incumbent Chancellor of Germany, has led efforts within the European Union to speed up the importation of middle eastern refugees, many of whom are fleeing the civil war currently churning in Syria.
While humanitarian efforts are often considered a positive use of governmental assets, the way in which the European Union went about mandating immigration quotas to hastily incorporate these asylum seekers made for a dangerous and ineffective border control system throughout much of the continent. Unwilling to change their tune, the EU was soon allowing numerous radical Islamic terrorists into their member nations, as these caliphate fighters could simply pose as refugees to gain access to their targets.
Now, as Europeans are living in perpetual fear of radical Islam and ISIS, Angela Merkel has become a lightning rod for criticism, especially during her reelection campaign. By the beginning of this week, protesters had had enough.
“An investigation is underway in Germany this week after anti-immigration protesters hurled tomatoes at German Chancellor Angela Merkel during a campaign event in southern Germany.
“Police said at least two tomatoes were thrown at Merkel during her speech at a campaign rally Tuesday, with one hitting her left hip, leaving a stain on her signature jacket, and another one hitting the event’s moderator, Germany’s DPA news agency reported.
“The rowdy demonstration occurred during Merkel’s first campaign stop of the day, a 40-minute rally in a small university town that attracted about 3,000 people, Bloomberg News reported.
“Merkel is seeking a fourth term in the Sept. 24 parliamentary elections, where her Christian Democratic Union (CDU) party is expected to win, the latest polling suggests.
“A small group of instigators blew whistles and shouted at Merkel during her speech -– protesting Merkel’s policy of open borders that led to the arrival of at least 1 million unvetted migrants into the country.
“The demonstrators were heard calling the German leader a ‘liar’ and ‘betrayer of her people.'”
Merkel’s sovereignty smashing tactics have embroiled Europe in a battle against radical Islam that they never believed that they would be force to fight.
Furthermore, the actions of the European Union threaten to undermine the very purpose of the alliance. Britain has already voted to dissolve their participation in the group, citing nationalistic reasoning, and a number of eastern European nations are outright refusing to open their borders to Merkel’s mandates.
