The Creeping De-Legitimisation of a Nation

In the federal state of Northrhine-Westphalia, policemen are not allowed to sport German flags at their cars during the Football World Cup because it might be provocative to supporters of other teams. The same applies to the city state of Berlin, where the ban was already applied four years ago. In the federal state of Sachsen-Anhalt, for example, there is no such ban. Is it possible that we have a demographic problem here?

Source: Statistik-Portal.
This chart shows the percentage of the German population with a "migration background" (including naturalised Germans) subdivided into federal states resp. city states. "Neue Länder" refers to the federal states which were created after reunification and of which Sachsen-Anhalt is one.

Meanwhile, two days ago, during the statutory meeting of the parliament of Northrhine-Westphalia following the elections im May, the newly elected member Arif Ünal (Greens) made his presence felt already by demanding that the adjuration ought to be changed from "for the good of the German people" to "for the good of the population of Northrhine-Westphalia".

Never underestimate demographics.

So it's saying that 18.7 percent of people in Germany are of immigrant background?

Actually, I wouldn't mind migrating to Germany, but being American and white, I'd be deported. Perhaps I could say I'm one of the farmers in Africa who lost their land to that dictator whose taking land from white farmers. Would that work? Obviously, I'd have to know specifics to bluff my way in--like what's the dictator's name and his country. :)

Just another small step in the direction of global governance. The Greens here have a saying, "Think globally, act locally." Concepts like nationalism, patriotism, any pride in one's language, culture or history stands in the way of this Utopia and must be eroded away on the local level. Of course this only applies to the USA and western Europe. The masses of the Third World are the tool for bringing the change to the First World.

Book that is similar to the title of your blog post, but dealing with the UK:

The Abolition of Britain: From Winston Churchill to Princess Diana (2002), by Peter Hitchens
