Politician ridicules Green Party LGBT TQQ Proposal by greeting Parliament in 60 different Genders VIDEO
AfD politician Steffen Königer ridiculed the Greens in the Brandenburg Parliament for their proposal of a "Campaign for Acceptance of Gender and Sexual diversity, Self-Determination and against Homo and Trans*-phobia in Brandenburg" as well as "Giving equal rights and societal equality for LGBTTQQ (Lesbian, Gay, Bi-sexual, Trans, Two-spirit, Queer, Questioning) people in Brandenburg" by quoting 60 of the Genders considered by Leftists to be actual identities - they're straight from Facebook's Gender option list.
He finished his introduction of almost 3 minutes by stating that his party rejects the proposal.
Some Genders have different names in German, so I translated them literally.
The Greens are notorious for their efforts to legalize Pedophilia and normalize transsexuality for children - high ranking party officials like Daniel Cohn-Bendit openly spoke about their sexual experiences with kindergardeners.The party also stands for a complete abolishment of Germany's national borders: The "Green Youth" division prides itself with posting pictures of members urinating on the German flag on social media. They also support the mass influx of millions of young, fertile Muslim men to "thin out" the German people as Joschka Fischer, former Foreign Minister, put it.
For these reasons the Greens are accused of putting forward the proposals, camouflaged as promoting "tolerance", in a deliberate attempt to destroy the traditional family and further lower German birth rates.
The Gender insanity has reached critical levels in Germany: Soon it may become a hate-crime to imply that there are only two genders as it has already become for opposing mass immigration.
Every paper, letter or official statement has to be "gendered" by including additional symbols for two or more genders to avoid discrimination accusations, for example "Sehr geehrte(r) Herr/Frau", "Sehr geehrte Student*innen" or "Sehr geehrte Studierende" (new Neutral form) is used to address males or females and students respectively rather than using the terminology that was common for centuries.
This is considered by many as an attack on the German language as well as poisoning to the minds of schoolchildren and university students. Much-needed funds for infrastructure are allocated to discuss the need for 3rd bathrooms and rewriting government templates to be gender-conform, possibly costing millions each.
A very loud, tiny minority now forces their insane ideology on the heterosexual society, calling anybody that disagrees with their policies a "homophobe" or bigot. Despite making up just a small percentage of the general population, transsexuals and homosexuals are ubiquitous on Television, in movies, newspapers and billboards. Children in as early as 4th grade are subjected to explicit sex education, including homosexuality and trans-sexuality. Parents are afraid to speak up in fear of being called homophobe.
This out-of-control political correctness has also lead to huge taxpayer funding of absurd university courses. For example the ruling parties (Green and CDU) in the State of Baden-Württemberg stated in their program that the most important scientific fields for research to keep Germany competitive are "Gender Studies", political sciences, Philosophy and the Arts. It is no surprise that this mindset produces insane proposals as the one put forward by the Greens.
Frustrated Germans who are fed up with the insanity of Gender-Ideology and want a healthy, normal family and their tax dollars spent on their own people rather than foreigners or a screeching minority of cultural Marxists found hope in the new Alternative for Germany, which got up to 25% of votes in some states from the get-go.

Obama's use of the NSA breathes new life into Germany's resurrected stasi
Germany's intelligence service, the Bundesnachrichtendienst (BND), has been helping the NSA spy on European politicians and companies for years, according to the German news magazine Der Spiegel. The NSA has been sending lists of "selectors"—identifying telephone numbers, e-mail and IP addresses—to the BND, which then provides related information that it holds in its surveillance databases. According to the German newspaper Die Zeit, the NSA sent selector lists several times a day, and altogether 800,000 selectors have been requested.
The BND realized as early as 2008 that some of the selectors were not permitted according to its internal rules, or covered by a 2002 US-Germany anti-terrorism "Memorandum of Agreement" on intelligence cooperation. And yet it did nothing to check the NSA's requests systematically. It was only in the summer of 2013, after Edward Snowden's revelations of massive NSA and GCHQ surveillance, that the BND finally started an inquiry into all the selectors that had been processed.
According to Der Spiegel, investigators found that the BND had provided information on around 2,000 selectors that were clearly against European and German interests. Not only were European businesses such as the giant aerospace and defense company EADS, best-known as the manufacturer of the Airbus planes, targeted, so were European politicians—including German ones.
However, the BND did not inform the German Chancellor's office, which only found out about the misuse of the selector request system in March 2015. Instead, the BND simply asked the NSA to make requests that were fully covered by the anti-terrorism agreement between the two countries. According to Die Zeit, this was because the BND was worried that the NSA might curtail the flow of its own intelligence data to the German secret services if the selector scheme became embroiled in controversy.
The information about this activity has finally come out thanks to a long-running committee of inquiry, set up by the German Bundestag (federal parliament), which has been trying to get to the bottom of the NSA activities in Germany, and of the BND's involvement in them. The committee's investigation suggests that as many as 40,000 of the selectors were targeting European and German interests—far more than the 2,000 found by the BND.
There is likely to be considerable political fallout from the latest news. Because of the way the affair has been handled, with the German Chancellor kept in the dark for years, it is widely expected that the head of the BND, Gerhard Schindler, will be forced to resign. News that the BND has been actively helping the NSA to spy on European companies and politicians will also deepen the public's already considerable anger at US surveillance of Germans, first revealed by Snowden's leaks.
That, in its turn, could make it even harder to persuade them to accept the huge US-EU trade agreement currently being negotiated behind closed doors, known as the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP). The Germans are already the leading skeptics: over a million of them have signed an online petition calling for the TTIP talks to be halted, while thousands took to the streets earlier this month to protest against the proposed deal.

Two lawyers shot dead in attacks at lawyers' offices in Düsseldorf by man with legal dispute
Two women have been killed in attacks at lawyers' offices in Düsseldorf, west Germany today.
The victims were struck down in two separate attacks, and police later arrested a 48-year-old Shanghai-born man who they said had dealings with both offices.
The fatal attacks took place within 90 minutes of each other, at two separate lawyers' offices, and also saw two men injured.
The first attack took place at a lawyers' office in Düsseldorf, where a man stabbed a woman to death and injured a man, before reportedly also using a firearm and then set a fire, prosecutor Christoph Kumpa told reporters.
The suspect had a dispute with a lawyer in the office, police later confirmed, but did not reveal the identity of the victim.
About 90 minutes later, a lawyer's assistant was shot dead at an office in Erkrath, some nine miles away, and another man was injured.
According to police, the arrested man's legal case had been referred to the Erkrath office.
Police launched a massive manhunt and arrested the man Friday afternoon in Goch, near the Dutch border, after he forced his way into a pizza restaurant - setting off a scuffle in which two people were lightly injured.
Kumpa said the suspect apparently had a score to settle with the restaurant's owner.
Officials identified the suspect only as Yanquing T., in keeping with German privacy rules.
They said the 48-year-old, who was born in Shanghai and lived in Düsseldorf, admitted the attacks.
German TV Shows Nazi Symbols on Helmets of Ukraine Soldiers
Ukrainian soldiers with Nazi symbols on their helmets, including the swastika and
the SS runes of Hitler's infamous black-uniformed elite corps.
Germans were confronted with images of their country’s dark past on Monday night, when German public broadcaster ZDF showed video of Ukrainian soldiers with Nazi symbols on their helmets in its evening newscast. In a report on the fragile cease-fire in eastern Ukraine, Moscow correspondent Bernhard Lichte used pictures of a soldier wearing a combat helmet with the "SS runes" of Hitler’s infamous black-uniformed elite corps. A second soldier was seen with a swastika on his gear. “Volunteer battalions from nearly every political spectrum are reinforcing the government side,” the ZDF correspondent said in his report.
The video was shot last week in Ukraine by a camera team from Norwegian broadcaster TV2. “We were filming a report about Ukraine’s AZOV battalion in the eastern city of Urzuf, when we came across these soldiers,” Oysten Bogen, a correspondent for the private television station, told NBC News. Minutes before the images were taped, Bogen said he had asked a spokesperson whether the battalion had fascist tendencies. “The reply was: absolutely not, we are just Ukrainian nationalists,” Bogen said.
NSA and Britain's GCHQ have secret access to Deutsche Telekom

behind the NSA and GCHQ
Berlin (AFP) - The US National Security Agency and British intelligence services are able to secretly access data from telecoms giant Deutsche Telekom and several other German operators, according to Der Spiegel weekly.
An NSA programme called "Treasure Map" gives the US agency and Britain's electronic eavesdropping GCHQ near real-time information about the operators' networks, right through to end users on computers, smartphones or tablets, Der Spiegel said in a report to appear in its Sunday edition.
It is the latest in a string of revelations based on documents leaked by former NSA contractor Edward Snowden.
Spiegel said the tracking programme, which it dubbed "the Google Earth of the Internet", can be used to plan cyber attacks.
The magazine said it did not receive any immediate comment from the NSA or GCHQ in response to the claims.
Satellite ground station operator Stellar, which according to Spiegel was among the German firms targeted, responded angrily to the revelation.
"A cyber attack of this kind clearly violates German law," said Stellar boss Christian Steffen, after Spiegel presented it with a GCHQ document said to contain the passwords of some of its clients.
In response to the Spiegel report, Deutsche Telekom and regional operator Netcologne said they had not identified any data breaches.
But Deutsche Telekom's IT security head Thomas Tschersich said: "The access of foreign secret services to our network would be totally unacceptable."
"We are looking into any indication of a possible manipulation. We have also alerted the authorities," he told the weekly.
The Snowden leaks, which began last year and have revealed massive surveillance by the United States, have provoked outrage in Germany and damaged ties with Washington following disclosures that the NSA tapped Chancellor Angela Merkel's mobile phone.

Germany blocks Edward Snowden from testifying in person in NSA inquiry
The German government has blocked Edward Snowden from giving personal evidence in front of a parliamentary inquiry into NSA surveillance, it has emerged hours before Angela Merkel travels to Washington for a meeting with Barack Obama.
In a letter to members of a parliamentary committee obtained by Süddeutsche Zeitung, government officials say a personal invitation for the US whistleblower would "run counter to the political interests of the Federal Republic", and "put a grave and permanent strain" on US-German relations.
Opposition party members in the committee from the Left and Green party had for weeks insisted that the former NSA employee was a key witness and therefore would need to appear in person, not least because of concerns that Russia otherwise could influence his testimony.
However, the ruling Christian Democratic and Social Democratic parties, said that a written questionnaire would suffice. The disagreement led to the resignation of the CDU head of the committee this month.
Last June the German foreign ministry rejected Snowden's application for asylum because it was not submitted in person on German soil. If Snowden had been invited as a witness, he could have met these requirements.
Given that only the government could supply Snowden with permits for entering and staying in the country, as well as legal protection from an extradition query, it now looks highly unlikely that the whistleblower will be able to travel to Germany before his asylum in Russia expires at the end of June. Snowden's lawyer Jesselyn Radack said on Wednesday that she expected his Russian visa to be renewed.
Opposition politicians said they would seek ways to challenge the government's veto. The Green party leader, Simone Peter, accused the chancellor of cowardice.
"Merkel is displaying cowardice towards our ally America," she said. "We owe the Americans nothing in this respect. The government must at least make a serious effort to safely bring Snowden to Germany and let him give evidence here. But Merkel doesn't want that."
On Friday Merkel's spokesman, Steffen Seibert, said that even though Berlin last year pressed for a bilateral "no-spy" pact with Washington, "concrete results" were not expected during Merkel's US visit.
On Tuesday German government officials confirmed that Merkel would raise the issue of NSA surveillance during her scheduled four-hour meeting with Obama, but that the situation in the Ukraine and the transatlantic trade agreement (TTIP) would dominate the agenda.
