The mother of all migrants, Angela Merkel, announced yesterday that she will step down as Chancellor when her tenure expires in 2021. Many people had hoped that she would step down much sooner, but why ruin a terrible recent run so soon, she must’ve thought…
In a news conference in Berlin, following recent election setbacks, she said, “I will not be seeking any political post after my term ends.”
Additionally, Angela Merkel said that she would not seek re-election as leader of the false centre right party CDU in December, a post that she has held since the year 2000. On Sunday, the party was weakened in the state of Hesse in a poll, adding to the other political setbacks to the Christian Democratic Union of Germany lately.
Both the CDU and its national coalition partners, the Social Democrats, were more than a full 10 percentage points down on the previous poll done in Hesse, signifying a dwindling supporter base. Not just in Hesse, but presumably right across the country, as recent polls suggest.
Perhaps that had something to do with Angela Merkel’s disastrous open border policy and welfare state handouts for migrants, as part of the “welcome all refugees and migrants” agenda that backfired, which has seen Germany turn into a terrible shadow of its former self in many rural and urban areas.
Seemingly, now that Germany has been forever changed, Angela Merkel has decided to pack her bags and depart the political scene entirely by 2021, saying, “The time has come to open a new chapter.” Wow!
Angela Merkel attempted to reconnect with the growing public that truly despise her over her grand failures, saying, “As chancellor and leader of the CDU I’m politically responsible for everything, for successes and for failures.”
Somehow we don’t believe simple apologies will suffice for what Germany has gone through, and what it will go through due to Merkel’s globalist and elitist decisions, do you?
Mrs. Merkel lamented that all had not gone well, since they formed a coalition government with the Social Democrats for the past seven months: “When people are telling us what they think of how the government was formed and what they think of our work during the first seven months of this parliament… then it is a clear signal that things can’t carry on as they are.”
Angela Merkel then said she would not hand pick her successor, but it is thought that Annegret Kramp-Karrenbauer would be the obvious choice to become leader of the CDU upon her departure as leader in December.
Angela Merkel might also be a bit pensive over the vast amount of increasing support for the right-wing AfD (Alternative for Germany) party following the 2017 election, as well as the left-leaning Green Party, who have also grown in national support.
CDU Health Minister Jens Spahn, the most vocal critic of Merkel’s open door migration policy, could also be another candidate to take over from the “mother of all migrants” once she steps down as leader of the CDU party.
Sunday’s regional elections saw Mrs. Merkel’s party plunge 11 percentage points down to 27% in Hesse, which was the party’s worst showing since the year of 1966. It’s not exactly the “swinging sixties” for Merkel and her party at the moment.
Well, whilst Angela Merkel will step down as leader of the CDU in December (hooray!) and then later step down as Chancellor in 2021, she did also say in Berlin, “I once said I was not born chancellor. And I have never forgotten that.”
However, we have a sneaky suspicion that Angela Merkel was in fact groomed for the role since a very young age, which led to her thirteen year reign in the role, which since 2014 onwards into present day, has changed the face of Germany forever.
That’s the way Merkel crumbled…
