Ex-Chancellor Schmidt: It’s Merkel’s Fault, To be Featured with Swastika in Some Countries

Posted by in Economy

Former German chancellor Helmut Schimdt, sharply criticized Angela Merkel for her policies in the euro crisis. In a live talk-show  of state broadcaster ZDF, Schmidt said:

“It is partly her fault that in some European countries there are images featuring her with a swastika armband.”

The chancellor does as if she is “too centralized on her person,” Socialdemocrat Schmidt continued, adding “some neighboring countries have the feeling that Germany would be the new center.”

Also present at the show was German President Joachim Gauck, who  took Merkel in protection. “Today we do not face the problem that a chancellor who has forgot history claims: the world was to recover with the German spirit. Merkel struggles for a stable euro also representative for other neighboring countries.”

KTG understands Gauck as saying : 1) Merkel represents also the interests of Austria, France, Luxembourg, Belgium and the Netherlands 2) the German spirit was to save the world… yesterday :)
