This excerpt from a Breitbart article describes Germany’s anti-islamisation marchers as moms, kids and grandparents on lawn chairs. They are peaceful and respectful. But the Main Stream Media is painting them as violent anarchists, racists and fascists. To all my TEA Party friends, this dirty trick should be very familiar. ~ TD

LEIPZIG, Germany – Wednesday night saw a flare of violence and an accompanying police operation on a scale without precedent in recent German history. A group opposing militant Islam in Europe has called a demonstration, the city is deafened by political slogans played over loudspeakers, property is vandalised, and explosives are thrown at police in colossal running battles that involve thousands of people.
If you got your news from the mainstream media, what is increasingly known in Germany as the ‘liar press’ (Luegenpresse), the story might very well end there. Then again, the report might also throw in salacious details about the former leader of this movement and his colourful past, or the tragic death of an immigrant man who was killed shortly after a demonstration in Dresden last week…
There is no doubt about what these reports are meant to leave you thinking. Germans actually taking pride in their country, and very soon after in the neighborhood a young Eritrean is murdered with no apparent motive? Must be a racist attack. This has been a large part of the German establishment’s haughty dismissal of the Patriotic Europeans Against the Islamisation of the West (PEGIDA) group: that they are cold, angry racists with hatred in their hearts…
The fact that many of the supporters appear to be middle class, grandparents, or young couples doesn’t matter…
Nor does it matter that as was revealed on Wednesday, 20-year old Eritrean Khaled Idris Bahray was actually killed by his flat mate, rather than a roving band of politically engaged Germans protesting against government policy…
The fact is PEGIDA weren’t the ones throwing glass bottles and fireworks at Wednesday’s demonstration, it was the tens of thousands ofleft-wing counter-protesters who would stop at nothing to prevent the PEGIDA march from going ahead…
To sum this up, TEA Party style protesters are peacefully strolling the city with signs that warn against Islamization and expressing concern about tensions with Russia. While they’re doing that, the media is calling them:
- New NAZIs
- a small group, in spite of the huge turnout
And the evidence for the media’s accusations was conveniently provided by Leftist thugs who are organizing counter protests, complete with all the crimes the media is falsely attributing to the TEA Party style protesters.
Again I ask, does this sound familiar?
