Politically, this country is fucked.
When was it not?
Indeed.


That seems to be the context of the "Deutschland" music video by Rammstein. Note that the dogs in the end are Leonbergers, a German dog breed that were near extinction after WWI when only 5 dogs survived, and it happened again after WWII when only 8 dogs survived.

A nice interpretation is that the story of the video is in the dogs, and this is proven in that the band themselves are shown at the end of the music video crawling on all fours like dogs as Germania soars above them. Throughout the video we can see Germans represented in different ways. Germany starts out as a wolf, then becomes a German Shepherd and finally a near extinct Leonberger. When viewed this way, there is a heavy undertone of Germans going extinct, and this is given more credibility by the "future" scenes where the explorers are researching Germany as if it were an ancient relic.

Another way to view it is that he sings about loving his country but that it fucks up a lot so it's hard loving it, besides it covers pretty much all major conflicts that took place in Germany - the black plague, the protestant reformation, the world wars, the Berlin wall.

Also, it might be a bit of a jab from them to portrait Germania as a black chick, but when we consider that the German flag is black, red and yellow, "Deutschland" is portrayed by a black woman covered in yellow armor/clothing and red lasers around her.

Pretty insightful when you think about it. What this all means is - Germans, stop wrecking Europe with your drama!

It's funny that this comes from the Bavarian police which has the reputation of being pretty reactionary.

I suspect that the deeply entrenched CSU (the biggest party for all of post-war Bavaria and anti-refugee as well) is worried about competition from the AfD.

They've done the same in Sweden and the Netherlands. It totally does not incite more hatred and spite, how could you possibly think it does?

Sarcasm
They've stopped doing that here, although I'm guessing that has more to do with the total lack of funds to carry it out rather than anything else.

"No one can hide behind a screen, not even with pseudonyms or made-up names," Bavarian Interior Minister Joachim Herrmann said.


Another 56 cases had to be dropped, as investigators could not determine exactly who was behind the comments as users hid their identities with pseudonyms.
Hmmm

they're not 'learning' anything
Most germans would fully support a full crackdown on free speech if it meant eliminating hate speech towards minorities and refugees.
lol, no. It's perfectly normal to hear people utter "again, those niggers everywhere" on public transport, etc. Don't confuse the silent majority with the autistic minority screeching in public. No one gives a fuck about pc. We may seem that way because most Germans know their personal opinion isn't wanted or valued in Merkel's Deutschland. Some of us have tried to shake things up, but the majority of Germans prefer to suffer in silence. Trust me, there are exactly zero people I know that support this clown circus or feel we somehow need more refugees. The coverage you see on public media are either far left or far right opinion pieces, not representative of the average German's opinion.

Edit to add that the EU works really hard to make sure every smaller news outlet is eradicated, so its citizens won't commit wrongthink by subscribing to news outlets that aren't owned by Springer and friends. They just recently passed a bill that allows state-owned news agencies to waltz all over privately owned smaller ones by the sheer power of money. You have to understand that you can't even livestream on YouTube in Germany without technically having to own a broadcasting license (which costs money) and being careful not to piss off GEMA (GEMA being the 'Collecting society for collective rights management') which will otherwise shut down your channel and that's that.

Sadly, most Germans don't even realize how state and EU laws muzzled us, and they don't really care. Which does not make them supporters of clown world, they simply are clueless and busy with living their life.

Most germans would love to see any kind of crackdown. I would love to see a crackdown on the afd, the greens, illegals, fat woman in skirts, etc.

most arent clueless, they just dont care. but they will care the moment mass layoff start or some beloved program is cut or reduced.
Germans are only quite as long as they have work and a full belly.

And our fetish porn, don't forget the fetish porn.
Seriously, though: They are clueless. Because these decisions happen mostly unnoticed by everyone who's not already interested in certain topics. Politicians also outright lie if they don't like our reaction.

Protest something? - "Nah, those aren't real people. Those are bots."
Actually organize demonstrations and have hundreds of people show up? - "These people are hired extras, not real German citizens who disagree with our proposition."

They literally denounce our existence. That's the state we're in.

"People can't disagree with you...."
"...if there are no people!"
