    Merkel admits no-go areas exist

    German officials have been left speechless by Chancellor Angela Merkel’s comment that there are “no-go areas” in the country.

    The notion there are places in Germany outsiders — including police — can’t visit has previously been dismissed by officials.

    In an interview Monday with German broadcaster n-tv, Merkel said she favors a zero tolerance policy on crime and that includes preventing no-go areas, “that’s areas where nobody dares to go.”

    She added: “There are such areas and one has to call them by their name and do something about them.”

    Looks like politicians tell truth when desperate!!!
    Trump is basically "Bruce Wayne pretending to be a foppish retarded billionaire" tier genius, in case nerds need a simpler metaphor.

    European no-go zones ruled by sharia law have been around for at least a decade and are common knowledge to anybody even moderately well-informed... which is why Merkel's open confession will be such a shock to low-info liberals.

    There was a discussion about no-go zones recently. It was actually both interesting and funny:

    There was an interesting Reddit thread awhile back asking Europeans if they were real. About half the respondents said yes and half said no. Obviously online you have no way of knowing who really is even from Europe though.

    After Rotherham I don't believe a word European leftists say about these issues anymore.

    There are numerous credible news reports going back over a decade that document no-go zones throughout Europe. Of course back then, even liberals recognized that Islam was dangerous, so they didn't consider no-go zones a controversial topic and simply accepted them as a matter of fact. These days they desperately pretend they don't exist.

    Seems a bit weird that a right-wing pro-high-immigration politician like Merkel would want to talk about immigrant-heavy 'no-go' zones. Looking at her comments, given as part of her talking about cracking down on crime, it seems she is talking about high crime areas as opposed to immigrant-heavy areas so the comments may have zero connection to immigration in her mind. Crime-heavy zones is quite a different thing to what posters in this forum normally mean by '[Muslim immigrant heavy / sharia] no-go zones'. Her own government is refusing to give any specific examples, so that's both fishy and unhelpful.

    But it seems like this might be the equivalent of Trump talking about Chicago as a high-crime hellhole that needs to be cracked down on with zero-tolerance policies. Probably nothing to do with sharia law or Islam.


    In the interests of general clarity, can someone provide me with a clear definition of a 'no-go zone' and how one would set about measuring whether an area qualified as a 'no-go zone' or not? Can I also have an explanation of how an area that was high on Muslim immigrants who practiced 'sharia law' (whatever that is interpreted as meaning) would mean it would be a 'no-go zone'? Could I as a random white person not walk through such an area? What would happen to me if I did? What would happen to a police officer who entered such an area?

    The point that you missed is that Merkel has left the reservation by acknowledging something that is extraordinarily taboo to admit.

    No, you nutters are amusingly getting your hopes up because you think that a tiny piece of translation of interview comments about getting tough on crime (a standard right-wing trope, unsurprising given she's right-wing), somehow implies that she's done a complete 180 on her strong commitments to a policy of high immigration and now buys into your ignorant and hysterical fantasies with regard to Muslim immigration, when that wasn't what she was talking about.
