Judge Chhabria on Wednesday rejected the latest version of the agreement, saying in a written ruling that it could not be saved by “mere amendments.” The settlement proposed by those attorneys would “accomplish much [...]

When Jews do the same as others, it is far from being the same - On Perceptual Distortions of the German Soul? A Commentary by Ingo Brandt
Von Ingo Brandt | 14. Mai 2021
No, because in this topic one has to preface many self-evident facts, this is not whataboutism, because I am concerned with the question, which wars, terrorist attacks, genocides or conflicts abroad particularly interest, excite and bring Germans to the streets and which do not. In Israel, innocent civilians are attacked by Islamist terrorists with thousands of rockets, fired at cities [...]
The Corona pandemic reveals the failure of the federal government and the consequences of neoliberal policies and a sick system: incompetence, lack of concept, bureaucracy, fat economy, corruption, inhumanity, exploitation for the benefit of corporations and the rich - too few free rapid tests and too few vaccines. But in every crisis there is also an opportunity! The wind has changed! The end of the inhuman neoliberalism and the Reagan economic policy was just officially ended in the USA by Joe Biden. But the "bang" was obviously still not heard by the German government and the EU.

Germany has had a fundamental problem with racism, nationalism, xenophobia, discrimination against minorities, disrespect and intolerance for decades. Apparently, so does WDR. In the talk show "Die letzte Instanz" (The last resort) sat four white people who uninhibitedly reproduced this firmly anchored racist thinking in the white majority society. Not for the first time on public television, which invited right-wing extremists for ratings and made a "certain" way of thinking acceptable. A commentary and video on this by Michel Abdollahi.

Dear people, this video is very important to me because I no longer want racism and xenophobia to go uncommented. I want future generations to have it better. I ask you to watch it until the end and tell me what you think. As I had to realize, many people still don’t know what the scandal about the WDR broadcast [...]
Last Wednesday, right-wing extremists, racists and conspiracy theorists stormed the Capitol in Washington, smashing windows, breaking down doors, attacking Capitol police officers and invading the Democratic building. The coup was organized and orchestrated by Donald Trump. The coup attempt by Donald Trump is not only a failure, but also treason. This attack on democracy in the U.S., reminds like a blueprint, the first attack on democracy in Germany last year, when right-wing extremists and radicalized "Querdenker", tried to penetrate the Reichstag building and with the help of the far-right AfD entered the Bundestag.

Von Astrid Ebenhoch | 24. Dezember 2020
The Corona pandemic brought in the year 2020 the bad states and brutalization in Germany with all clarity to the light which were already present before long.

Facts that contradict the own view would be faded out. "In today's media landscape and on the Internet, everyone can select their own facts, you don't have to listen to a counter-opinion. This makes it easier to ignore facts and support someone who has proven to be incompetent. This is a permanent problem for democracy," Barack Obama said in this interview.
