Please note that this is just a personal account about my experience of the visit to Cologne yesterday, Saturday 20 September 2008. I do not write about the events on the day before, nor on the blocking of De Winter and other participants in the airport.
* * * * *
My colleague A [I will use initials as I do not know whether the persons mentioned want to be identified] and I arrived at 10:30 in Cologne. We had gone by car and parked to the other side of the river in Deutz neighbourhood (to the right in the map attached). Please note that the name of the tram-underground station is Deutzer Freiheit, which means the Deutz Freedom. This is very ironical. There is no more freedom in Germany, or in Cologne, or in Deutz of course. I am afraid that only a miracle could save us, or a very severe economic crisis that wakes up the citizens.
Our original plan was to cross the river and reach the Heumarkt, which was just to the other side. I phoned G, who I was going to meet, and who was already at Heumarkt. I was utterly naïve indeed thinking that I could meet her on the spot: there was no way to cross the river. The tram connexion was cancelled and the bridge was blocked by a line of antiriot police (we would later see in the afternoon, when we were able to cross it back, that it was full of police vans). Furthermore, the bridgehead was taken by some 100 or 200 “antifas”. I think that there could be around 5000 in total, including fellow travellers and Gutmensch. Please note that all the figures given are my own non-expert estimations.
We took a picture to a banner, and then tried to make some portraits of the antifas, but they told us unfriendly not to do it. The antifas were the usual brainless scum that you can expect. All in black, most with sunglasses and many with the collar or the hood of the pullover covering their mouth or head. I took some pictures of the groups from a safe distance.
I wonder what they actually think about themselves.
We had to go around and cross the bridge to the South (Severinsbrucke). We walked then along the river (Am Leystapel). By the middle of the way to the Heumarkt we found another group of antifas-lefties. These were more colourful and we took some photos of them, and even with them. But I do not show that one 🙂
Friendly Italian commies
What about relocating to Cuba? Or would you prefer North Korea?
Clowns without frontiers?
The police let the antifas do their own job.
Much easier that way, meinen Offizieren.
Would you like them as neighbours?
An appropriate son in law for our lefties, even our cons.
Nice employees for the company you manage, aren’t they?.
At a certain point we could not continue, the police that was supposedly separating the antifas for the “fas” were actually blocking the access to the former ones. I had not yet lost the faith in joining G at Heumarkt. We had kept frequent communication.
Which side was he really on? I think he is one of those”fascists”. Just look at his eyes.
The only Muslims we saw.
Why showing up if both the left and the “moderate” right do it for you?
We had to tern left and then continue up (on the map). Again this was full of antifas-lefties. We took some more photos, then went to the old city streets (upper left part of the map), hoping that it would be easier though the narrow streets. We reached a stage in a small square. I thought this was our demo. No, it was not. This was just another counter demo, even if this was not packed with antifas. No, definitely they were just their fellow travellers.
Wasn’t this another different war? Never mind!
“The day against the right”
Outrageous! They do not distinguish between “moderates” and extremists…
It was obviously not possible to enter the Heumarkt. I tried one of the narrow streets of the old city; there was a line of antifas with black clothing and sun glasses. They have even dared to place one of those plastic red-white stripes in front of them. I told one of them that I wanted to cross, they say no way. One of them spoke Spanish, and I ask her whether she was any authority, she confirmed it “we are the authority”.
A line of anti-riot police agents was only two meters behind them. I can not find a better image of the creeping Eurabian fascism: The police not only do not confront them, they cover their backs. Alternatively, we may think that the antifa-lefty militants are just the stormtroupers (Sturmabteilung?) of the formal police. They have even an excuse: the demo was officially cancelled “after leftist opponents of the rally clashed with its right-wing backers”, says Reuters. Curiously those responsible for the violence could demonstrate and control the streets with police complacency.
A hard day.
We tried finally from the Rheinuferstunnel, with similar results. We just sit down among the lefties after letting G know. We were concerned for the security of the surrounded colleagues. About an hour after G phoned me that they were going to be escorted out by the police.
We then went to meet at the hotel. There was a micro demo of Iranians protesting the flagrant violation of human rights by the pious Muslims that rule the Islamic republic. See their homemade stage.
It goes without saying that neither the lefties not the Gutmensch who are acting as the Trojan horse for the introduction of that criminal ideology of Islam paid any attention to this. We stoped to spoke to them. I may report later. I could not prevent thinking in the irony of all that.
At the hotel we were a group of six persons, later on joined by another two [I may indicate the names in an update after having their ok]. I knew one of them personally (G), and I met one person with whom I had had mail exchanges before! We had some drinks, commented on the events and on ourselves. We have become friends at first sight. A, who had met all for them for the first time, told me later on their clean look and honest faces. Yes, you would buy them a second hand car on their word (and a look to it, of course).
We returned to the Heumarkt. I was surprised to see that the charities of the German churches –Charitas, catholic, and Diakonie, protestant- had placed a banner with the evangelic quote in one of the houses:
They refer to those nazis also called Jews.
Merchandising using the icon of mass murderer Che Guevara
‘Love your neighbor as yourself’
The next time they complain about the persecution of Christians –done mostly by Muslims- we may remind them of another one: “If someone strikes you on the right cheek, turn to him the other also.”
Students from Colonia say no to Pro-Koln. “Against the extremism of the right”.
What about the left? Note the image is made of fotos of the students? What age are they? Have they been forced to by the colleagues? Have their teachers made pressure?
We had a discussion with a group young and brainless antifas on the Heumarkt. They have no idea on what all this is about. I would not wonder if in five years this scum starts beating Muslims to death in Europe. I could not prevent foul language, to the dismay of A.
Who are the fascists?
We then crossed the bridge to our car. It was taken by several tens of police vans. The agents were eating snack and relaxing. We were told that the cost of all this police operation was around one million euros. The number of police agents involved was 2000. We could see that they came from all over Germany. I wonder how many simultaneous events like this would they be able to crack.
We separated by the middle of the bridge after embracing and wishing each other an ironic “Next year in Jerusalem”. Then something funny happened. Two Spanish journalists wanted to justify his day and come after A and me. They wanted to interview us. The conversation could be us follows
- Journalist one: Hi, are you Spanish.
- Me and A: Yes.
At this point they could understand and kept silent. I put an end to their astonishment:
- Me: So, antifascists. I wish you have one of them among your in-laws.
We left them. It was late and we wanted to go back, but I think that we should have called back G and the others to let them know this two news pushers considered them fascists, so that they could discuss it.
* * * * *
Conclusions: The German political class succeeded in cracking the demo. The economic cost of the operation has been significant.
The political impact of the demo can only be confirmed in the next city elections. We will have to keep an eye to the immediate reactions in the following days.
The organisers were not able to hold the congress; we were not able to join the rally, but this is not important. We already know what any possible speech about the Islamización of Europe could say. That should not be our purpose, but to have an impact on the media. And we have had it, as never before. We should thank the counter demonstrants for that, without them, we would not have managed. But this cannot be a one-off event.
* * * * *
Proposal for future actions:
I think that we should repeat this rally every year. We need to show the Europeans that the Nazis and the fascists are the lefties. We can only make it by insisting.
We need to join also the counterdemo with banners showing verses of the Koran.
We need of course to meet once or twice a year. Because we enjoy been together; we are becoming great friends, and we will have to help each other.

It was a great day for me. A, G and the others, I enjoyed meeting you.
