    At least three, arguably four, generations have come-of-age since 1945. ~99.8% of the German population alive today had nothing to do with WWII. They’ve apologized profusely and paid reparations to Israel; they seriously need to move on.

    I’m flabbergasted that any significant number of Germans would want Angela Merkel to remain in power. I’m not exaggerating when I say that she’s the worst thing to happen to Germany since you-know-who. I’ve read that these so-called migrants have committed ~200,000 crimes in 2015 and again in 2016. And that, of course, is just the reported crimes. Mostly fraud & theft but also several murders and sexual-assaults possibly numbering in the low-thousands. For all intents & purposes Angela Merkel has committed treason.
