Despite being criticized of jumping on the far-right anti-immigrant bandwagon, Sahra Wagenknecht, the co-leader of the far-left “Die Linke” (The Left) party in the German parliament, has declared that her party is now against open borders:
A new movement is starting in Germany and it is against open borders. That seems sensible, when Germany’s migration problems are taken into account, but surprisingly the initiative comes from a prominent far-left German politician.
Meet Sahra Wagenknecht, the co-president of the far-left “Die Linke” (The Left) party in the German parliament.
She is a supporter of communism and is working to create an ‘anti-open border’ movement to counter the right. Her initiative, called “Aufstehen” (stand up) will be operational from 4 September.
“A border open to all is naive, foremost it’s not a leftist policy (…) the money spent on asylum seekers could have helped far more of Germany’s poor”, Wagenknecht explains.
The mission of the movement is to “Put some pressure” on other leftist parties to push them to adopt “a different migration policy”.
She wants to end the “good lefty conscience on the culture of hospitality and these elites living far from poor families who are fighting to defend their piece of the cake”.
Inspired by leftist initiatives like Podemos in Spain and La France Insoumise in France, Wagenknecht wants to mobilise the far left on the theme of migration with the idea to counter the far right.
Her initiative has been badly received by one of Germany’s ruling parties, the Social Democratic (SPD).
“Sahra Wagenknecht is dreaming of a populist left in Germany,” said Thomas Oppermann, chairman of the SPD parliamentary group, who accuses her of mounting the poor and the refugees against each other.
So basically Wagenknecht wants to spend taxpayers money on poor unemployable migrants already freeloading in Germany–and not on new freeloading migrants who want to come in. How clever.
Germany has unprecedented levels of unemployment and poverty because of Third World immigration, and very few of those already there will ever get off the welfare rolls, which is exactly what she and her fellow communists want.
Anyone who believes that the communists actually care about the plight of the poor should check themselves into a mental hospital. For the last 100 years under communism, over 100 million people–mostly poor people–were murdered by these compassionate idealists.
The radical Left thrives on violence, which is why they always accuse anyone who opposes them as being violent “extremists”.
Communism is a death cult.
