German President doesn't sugar code things during WWII event

German President didn’t sugar code WWII and his countries action during it calling it a “German Crime” during a event today. Its a good showing how you can admit failures and still press on for the future.

German President Frank-Walter Steinmeier has recalled the Second World War as a “German crime” that his nation will never forget during commemorations in Warsaw marking the start of the conflict 80 years ago.

The observances were being led by Polish President Andrzej Duda and also attended by U.S. Vice-President Mike Pence and German Chancellor Angela MerkelU.S. President Donald Trump was originally scheduled to attend but cancelled, citing the need to be home with a hurricane approaching.

Nazi Germany attacked Poland on Sept. 1, 1939, triggering a nearly six-year war that killed more than 70 million people.

Steinmeier called it a “painful legacy” as he recalled the German attack on Warsaw and Poland. He recalled that under the Nazi plan for Poland, “its culture, its cities, its people — everything living was supposed to be destroyed.”

Apology tour. Weak !

What would be a strong thing for the German President to say on this occasion?

So, how has Germany changed? Angela Merkel can’t bring herself to say “the German people” and is trying to destroy all European people’s and cultures by flooding them with military aged male Islamists. Yeah, that that’s going to end well for the Polish people and culture, second time around.

He’s being humorous.

That’s called a mistake in regards to letting in too many refugees.

What Germany did to Poland in World War II was planned out from the start. It wasn’t a mistake.

What Angela Merkel has been doing to Europe via refugees was planned from the start. It was no mistake.
