Germany is starting to wake up to what Angela Merkel has done to destroy their country by importing thousands of Muslim refugees from Syria — and they are not being silent about it.
Sitting in his white-walled room on the second floor of an anonymous office block, the German politician talks from the heart.
He states emotionally that his country has changed for ever; that the European Union is finished and Chancellor Angela Merkel’s days are numbered.
‘Frau Merkel, she’s not right in the head,’ adds 46-year-old Siegbert Droese, pointing his finger at his temple.
According to a recent survey, half of the population is now sceptical that Mrs Merkel will cope with the huge influx.
This is despite her recent TV address to the nation — complete with Arabic sub-titles aimed at the 1.1 million migrants who arrived in 2015 and now live at the Government’s expense in 2000 camps, hotels and rented accommodation across the country — when she repeated her insistence that ‘we can do this’.
The tide is inexorably turning against her, and polls show her popularity is declining.
In contrast, the AfD, with an increasingly middle-class following of intellectuals and business people, hit an all-time high in an opinion poll released by best-selling newspaper Bild this week.
From a standing start when it was founded in 2013, it is now supported by 11.5 per cent of voters, making it the third largest political party in the country.
Nowhere in Germany do AfD’s demands for border controls and fewer migrants chime more easily with the mood than in the former Communist bloc in the east of the country.
Here in Leipzig, on Monday night, a local grassroots organisation called Pegida — Patriotic Europeans Against the Islamisation of the West — held an anti-migrant march and protest.
Günter Fritz, the owner of a gun shop in another town nearby, explained: ‘Since September, all over Germany, sales of these defence products have exploded. My clients come from all walks of life, ranging from the professor to the retired lady. All are afraid.’
The same pattern has emerged in Cologne, where, for example, there has been a dramatic rise in applications for airgun licences since the New Year’s Eve sex attacks.
Police said they have already received 73 applications this year, compared with just 100 in the whole of 2014.
The fact is that fear is gripping Germany and migration is being blamed.
