Angela Merkel said in her last New Year's address to the nation as German chancellor that 2020 was by far the most difficult of her 15-year leadership, yet the start of vaccinations against COVID-19 made 2021 a year of hope.
In a rare show of emotion, Merkel, who steered Germany and the European Union through the 2008 financial crisis, the Greek debt crisis a year later and the migrant crisis five years ago, condemned a protest movement opposed to lockdowns and said she would get vaccinated when the shot is widely available.
"Let me tell you something personal in conclusion: in nine months a parliamentary election will take place and I won't be running again," said Merkel, 66. "Today is therefore in all likelihood the last time I am able to deliver a New Year's address to you
The Weeping Statist
Sound like the Wuhan bio-weapon?
75 years ago, Hermann Göring testified at the Nuremberg Trials. He was asked, “How did you make the German people go along with all this?” And he said, “It’s not anything to do with Nazism. It has to do with human nature. You can do this in a Nazi regime. You can do it in a Socialist regime. You can do it in a Communist regime. You can do it in a monarchy or a democracy. The only thing the government needs to make people into slaves is fear.”
She does needs a Bush neck rub!
“The time has come,” the FRAU MERKEL said,
“To talk of many things:
Of shoes—and ships—and sealing-wax—
Of cabbages—and kings—
And why the sea is boiling hot—
And whether pigs have wings.”
“I weep for you,” the FRAU MERKEL said:
“I deeply sympathize.”
With sobs and tears she sorted out
Those of the largest size,
Maybe Merkel Jugend can comfort her.
At least she’s leaving at a decent age. Unlike here in the US where we have ancient evil crones and slobbering drooling alzheimer patients who cling to political office well into their late 70s and 80s.
She as most world _leaders_ have become evil to the core; either completely confused by their demonic religions or eagerly aiding in the destruction of reality and humanity.
He was right.
I’ve got a suspicion it was harder on her nation’s people.
You know, President Trump has stood alone against all the f***ing left, half the right, 95% of the media and the deep state/swamp, and he’s still FIGHTING, not whining about how ‘hard it is’.
I have tremendous admiration for this man.
Go take a Midol, Angela, ya wuss!
You think it was hard for you ... think how hard it was for the peasants .... it was like they were back in East Germany under the communists this year!!!!!!!!
May it be her last year on the planet as well.
Boo bloody hoo
Suck it up and blame Trump you globalist hack
