Just several days after their parliament voted in favor of a limited burka ban for judges, civil servants and military, de Maisiere called for laws to protect Germany's "dominant culture."
Had he waited a few more years, Islam and sharia law would have become Germany's dominant culture, but still, this may be too little, too late.
"We give our names. We shake hands. We ban masks at public demonstrations [because Muslim rioters used to do their thing without being identified]. To 'show face' is the expression of our democratic coexistence," de Maisiere said, saying that there is an indigenous "dominant culture" that should be protected."
There are also a lot of women in Cologne, Germany that also should have been protected but the government failed them and now they are putting a band aid on a gushing wound.
Leitkultur or "dominant culture," has become a highly controversial topic in Germany because of the liberals who want to commit suicide via multi culturalism. They haven't been directly affected by an Islamic culture that wants to dominate them . . . but they will be if they wait long enough.
Under a law passed in Bavaria in 2016, immigrants are required to respect the Leitkultur. That got a big "LOL" from the German mosques.
The supporters of the law say it prevents the formation of parallel societies. In fact, it most likely prevents rapes of young German girls, female genital mutilations, stonings, honor killings, persecution of gays, Jews, Christians and all other infidels, when the time is ripe.
Critics say such stupid things as it requires immigrants to treat beer festivals and lederhosen with the same respect as democracy and human rights. Their simple minds can't grasp the notion that German culture simply needs to be respected, just the same way anyone would respect the home of someone they visit--if my culture says it's okay to wear my footwear in my home, but yours says that footwear be removed at the entrance, I'm going to remove my shoes. It's courtesy and the civilized thing to do.
Last week parliament voted to ban the burka for public officials carrying out their duties. On most jobs, people are required to dress according to company policy.
Angela Merkel, the German chancellor, has come to realize that she is in trouble with the voters after allowing the influx of immigrants to overwhelm the resources of Germany. Now she has called for a ban "wherever legally possible" before the elections in five months hence.
She knows where her 'voter bread' is buttered and is doing her best to appease the voters instead of the immigrants who want Germany to become Germanistan.
