German Cultural Council Says to Broadcasters to Pull the Plug on Populist TV Talkshows

It appears to be beyond the ability of most Euro-descended peoples to admit that their governments have betrayed them.

In Germany, speaking negatively about “immigrants” (better word: invaders) is frowned upon. Apparently, some TV talk shows have discussed the downsides of the invasion, which has led to a call for a moratorium on such discussions on TV.

Excerpt from The Guardian

The head of Germany’s most powerful cultural body has called for the plug to be pulled on the nation’s multitude of political talkshows for a year, arguing that their populist agenda has helped fuel the rise of the far right.

Olaf Zimmermann, who heads the German cultural council, an umbrella group for organisations from art galleries to television companies, said public broadcasters needed to step back and rethink a format that has helped cement gloom-ridden public attitudes towards refugees and Islam, and propelled the into parliament at last September’s election.

“I’d suggest for them, take a break for a year … though the length of the intermission isn’t the decisive factor. What is crucial is that they return with new talkshow concepts and try to come up with more suitable contents with regards to social cohesion in our society,” Zimmermann said, arguing that the public broadcasters ARD and ZDF were obsessed with refugee-related issues, often framing them negatively.

The cultural council, which is taxpayer funded, has pointed out that since 2015, at the height of the refugee crisis when almost a million refugees and migrants entered Germany, more than 100 political talk shows have put a topic related to migration at the centre of their discussion.

Since September’s election, which saw the AfD enter the Bundestag for the first time, much debate has surrounded the extent to which framing an issue, or lending a topic a certain perspective, might have helped their cause.

Television analysts have argued that the issue of refugees has been dealt with in a mostly negative way.

TV bosses have defended their formats, admitting the intensity of the refugee debate led to the topic being far more widely discussed in 2015 and 2016 than ever before, but arguing that it was no longer a dominant theme.

Even last week, however, ARD’s main talkshow Hart Aber Fair – Hard But Fair – led with the question: “To what extent is it possible to integrate young men who have fled from war and archaic societies? How unsafe is Germany as a result of them?”

The programme was triggered by the murder of a 14-year-old German girl whose body was discovered in Wiesbaden last week. The 20-year-old Iraqi man suspected of her rape and murder was extradited from Iraq to Germany this week to face trial.

Zimmermann said in too many cases refugees were unfairly presented as a threat to German society.

Unfairly? What’s that supposed to mean? When a small percentage of country’s population commits most of its crime, there’s nothing unfair about talking about it in order to do something about it.

BTW, Zimmermann is a Jewish name (Bob Dylan’s real name is Robert Zimmerman). You don’t think he has a bone to pick with the Germans, do you?

  1. “… try to come up with more suitable contents with regards to social cohesion in our society,”

    Once upon a time, there was social cohesion in German society. The greatest cohesion of a society the world had ever seen. It was called the Third Reich under National Socialism. Perhaps the television producers should explore the facts pertaining to that.

    But no doubt (((Zimmermann))) had other content in mind like ‘the joys of goat copulation’.

    “The 20-year-old Iraqi man suspected of her rape and murder was extradited from Iraq to Germany this week to face trial.

    Zimmermann said in too many cases refugees were unfairly presented as a threat to German society.”

    Riiiight. I am sure the sub-human POS from Iraq was sufferink a “sexual emergency”…

    But hey, I am just a hatefu,l racist Nazi.

    As I have always said, once a white man goes down the road of National Socialism, he never looks back.

  2. Unfortunately, national socialism in this country, would not work due to the huge nigger population. There could be no cohesiveness since the niggers would be a huge burden. I suppose expulsion of all niggers could be an option.

    • “I suppose expulsion of all niggers could be an option.”

      Exactly. The first step is removal of citizenship. Only White men of a given determination can be citizens. Only citizens can run for office. Only citizens can own media. Only citizens are permitted to be doctors and lawyers. The rest are subjects of the state. If they don’t like it, they can leave. We will even cheerfully assist them in their departure. But if they stay, it’s a whole new ball game. The party is over. No more parasites living off of the white man.

      It worked in Germany and it can work here too. All that is required is the will to do so.
