Lagerfeld may drop German citizenship over migrant welcome
AFP ^ | May, 20 2018 | N/A

Fashion designer Karl Lagerfeld, who has made no secret of his disdain for Chancellor Angela Merkel's decision to allow some one million migrants into Germany, has said he might have to renounce his German citizenship over the issue.

"Did she really need to say it was necessary to welcome one million migrants at a time when France, which casts itself as the land of human rights, pledged to take in 30,000?" Lagerfeld said in an interview with French weekly Le Point published Thursday.

Again dismissing Merkel as a "pastor's daughter who can't accept the evil that Germany carried out after 1933," the designer accused her of fostering the emergence of the far-right Alternative for Germany party.

"The AfD didn't exist, yet with one sentence she made it exist by alienating two million voters and sending 100 of these neo-Nazis into parliament," he said, referring to the 92 AfD lawmakers who obtained seats in the Bundestag in last September's election.

"If this keeps up, I'll abandon German citizenship," Lagerfeld said, without indicating what he might trade it for, though he has gushed previously that "a new day is dawning in France" with the arrival of President Emmanuel Macron.

"I like Macron personally, and (his wife) Brigitte, but that doesn't mean I want to become French," he told Le Point.

"I don't like nations, I'm cosmopolitan. And I don't feel German either -- I'm Hanseatic," he said, referring to the Hanseatic League of merchant guilds across northern Germany that emerged in the 13th century.

His stance would appear to be a stark reversal from one espoused just a few months ago, when he told Madame Figaro magazine that he was "a Kraut at heart".

"One cannot -- even if there are decades between them -- kill millions of Jews so you can bring millions of their worst enemies in their place,".

Huh... I've never considered him as overly intelligent, but I may have to change my mind.

angela has chosen vicious savages over Jews. There are more of them, they make babies like rabbits, and they will vote to keep her in power.

Karl Lagerfeld on the me too movement.

"What shocks me most in all of this are the starlets who have taken 20 years to remember what happened. Not to mention the fact there are no prosecution witnesses."

"I read somewhere that now you must ask a model if she is comfortable with posing. It's simply too much, from now on, as a designer, you can't do anything. It's unbelievable. If you don't want your pants pulled about, don't become a model! Join a nunnery, there'll always be a place for you in the convent. They're recruiting even!"

Quite the colorful character he is. Queer as a 3 dollar bill too.

Europe will have a bad war which will involve ethnic cleansing.

If they do it soon, a lot of Muslims will die in camps.
If they delay, a lot of Europeans will die in camps run by Muslims.

I’ve been saying for 10 years I expect to see concentration camps in Europe in my lifetime. The only question is who will be running them.

He doesn’t like nations but also likes borders. Just shows you that you can be a major success in one area and a moron in every other.

Not true! Muslim culture is very tolerant. They welcome foreigners in all Muslim lands—they’re called slaves. Someone has to do the work, you know.

Europeans will notice little difference; after all they already pay the invaders their jizyah administered by the local governments. Of course some will die, but they are not real people.

The big difference this time as opposed to the other two times is the battle will be who ends up controlling some very deadly weaponry that would threaten the world. There will be no appetite in the US to assist Europe for a third time, but we won’t be able to let those weapons fall into the hands of Muslims.

She’s no innocent. She’s doing this on purpose to destroy Germany.
