Over the past month, I have been quietly watching the growing protest movement against the Islamization of Germany that has emerged in Dresden.
More than 17,000 Germans recently turned out at a PEGIDA demonstration – Patriotic Europeans Against The Islamization of the Occident – in Dresden on Dec. 22. A new poll shows that 1 in 8 Germans would now join a PEGIDA march organized in their hometowns.
What is PEGIDA? It was a group formed by 12 people in October … yes, a group formed by 12 people, which was around the time of The Political Cesspool Conference in Memphis, which has ballooned in the span of two months to have millions of admirers and the support of tens of thousands of Germans attending its public marches in the most oppressed country in Western Europe.
If something like this can happen in Germany with its insane anti-racism laws in record time, why can’t we put together a similar movement in the South – with all the advantages of free speech and a weak to non-existent “anti-fa” opposition – in response to the Obama amnesty and feckless Republicans? Why can’t we have, say, Jeb Bush denouncing our “racism,” “xenophobia,” and “intolerance”?
Is this fundamentally different from what we have been trying to do for a year and a half now? Maybe it would happen if more Americans could pull themselves away from their computer screens and start organizing.
