This is very good news and excellent that the Danish state tv, Danmarks Radio, truthfully notes that the opposition to Islam comes from the middle of society. The journalist’s claim that Germany is heading for a “Right turn” is not true. Being against Islam has nothing to do with being Right wing. Actually, criticising religions, defending womens’ rights and the right to speak one’s mind no matter how much it may offend of be against public consensus, used to be Left wing. When talking about Left and Right in politics, it concerns how big the state should be (including how high the taxes should be). Left means big state and the state controls a lot of the citizens income through taxes, Right means small state and small taxes. What is also good to know is that botn Nazism – National Socialists – and Fascism are Left wing, since both wants powerful states. Anarcists are actually Right wing.
Video (if I were siding with the sharia or a politician who had helped sharia advance, I would feel a bit nervous…):
In Dresden, 15,000 people demonstrated for the movement “Patriotic Europeans against the Islamization of the West” (Pegida). The demonstrations against an alleged alienation of the land grows weekly.
According to the police, over 5,600 people joined a counter demonstration, “Dresden for all”.
Chancellor Merkel condemned the “Pegida” actions – Germany has no place for propaganda and slander.

Kim Bildsøe Lassen, anchorman: Michael Reiter, you are with me from Dresden. You have been to a demonstration the whole evening. Try to describe to me what kind of people are demonstrating. Is it as the politician here said, mostly neo-Nazis in suits?
Michael Reiter, TV news: Well, I looked very closely, and I saw no suits, I saw a handful of neo-Nazis and German right wing populists, in turn, I saw thousands of ordinary Germans. It was the German middle class, who demonstrated today. It was not a bunch of thugs with swastikas tattooed in the neck, and it is thought provoking that this protest is out of the middle of German society. It has not been seen here in Germany until now. … It can sow the seeds for a German right turn.”
