German schools rename ‘St. Martin’s Day’ fest – but look who opposes doing that

You just know this latest in the thousand cuts of “multi-kulti” cultural suicide has to do with fear of offending Muslim immigrants.  And it does.

But I urge readers to look past the surface and keep in mind who’s doing the slice-and-dice job.

The story at hand involves a school in Oberkassel, Dusseldorf, which has redesignated the traditional St. Martin’s Day festival, held on 11 November, as an absurdly generic “Festival of Light.”  German media reported this late last week, and it was picked up quickly by English-language outlets.  (It’s worth making the point, as an aside, that we not only have to give up the richness of our own Western culture to supposedly avoid offending those from other cultures; we have to dumb everything down as well, turning ourselves into primitive animists and nature-worshipers.  Having a festival about “light” is so 10,000 years ago.)

  1. It will be interesting to see the statistics on whether there is any increase in fourth quarter German muffle furnace production. Especially if Topf & Sons goes back into business.

    Additionally. Possible Balkans to Bessarabia flip to Russia increasing in probability. Now over 25% in near future. Curious to see if Moldova ends up shutting West’s door to Odessa oblast shut. Misha may have to start chewing on his tie again…

    Change of direction, on Western policies ranging from geopolitical to economic issues in Europe and MENA, now critically urgent. But, who’s listening?

    Best regards, as ever
