Thousands Protest German Chancellor Angela Merkel, Call for Her Resignation

Thousands of Germans have began protesting Merkel over her open door immigration policies.  Over 5000 showed up in Berlin, while thousands more protested in other  German cities.    The protests come after a recent wave of violence including 4 brutal attacks that left a dozen dead.  Protesters shouted “Merkel Must Go” as they waved German flags:

Merkel also lost the support of a key political figure.  Horst Seehofer, the conservative premier of Bavaria, said he did not support Merkel’s open-door policies any longer.   In response to Merkel’s earlier statement, Seehofer expressed his doubt that Germany could still “do it:”

‘”We can do this” – I cannot, with the best will, adopt this phrase as my own.’ – Seehofer

Seehofer is only echoing the will of the German people. His response came after Merkel continued to try to defend her open-door immigration policies which the German people obviously disagree with. In a recent survey, over 83% of Germans believe that Immigration is Germany’s bigger problem. This number has doubled since the same survey was taken last year. The German people are getting tired of reading about the mass rape, murder, and assaults occurring at the hands of Syrian Refugees.
