There might finally be a light at the end of the tunnel for the country of Germany. The woman who has led Germany into an identity crisis will soon no longer be around to divide the German population by forcing “tolerance” down their throats.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel announced on Monday that she won’t be seeking re-election, while simultaneously announcing that she will also step down as leader of Germany’s mislabeled as conservative Christian Democratic Union.

According to the New York Times:

Her announcement, in a meeting of conservative leaders, follows two disastrous results in regional elections that saw her party and its allies slump to near-record lows. Ms. Merkel’s fractious coalition government, which took six months to cobble together and nearly collapsed twice since then, has long lost its majority in opinion polls[…]

Ms. Merkel said she would seek to remain as chancellor until 2021, when the current legislative terms end, but many analysts and politicians, even in her own party, question whether she will stay in power that long. Her setbacks have emboldened critics in her party, and her governing partners, the Social Democrats, whose recent losses were even worse than those of the conservatives, might pull out of the coalition. That could lead to early elections.

It’s pretty funny that Merkel is considered a conservative in Germany considering she has toed the progressive line since her ascension to power, to the very detriment of her country.

Merkel has been routinely criticized over the last few years for her ignorance of Germany’s borders in allowing migrants and refugees to flood into the country like a sieve. After repeated attacks by migrants towards the German people, Merkel’s insistence to continue her refugee policy was met with declining popularity among German citizens.

Merkel’s case was probably lost forever when she began acknowledging the failures of her ignorant migrant policies which saw the Germany’s identity brought into question. Earlier this year, Merkel finally admitted that her policies have led to Islamic migrant ‘no-go-areas’ in which police and outsiders (native Germans) don’t feel safe visiting, patrolling or passing through.

It looks as if the German people won’t have to wait much longer to get out from under the thumb of the European Union (EU), which Merkel has long capitulated to. Germany will most likely stay in the EU, but at least they won’t have the EU’s puppet in charge for much longer.
