Mutti Merkel Retires With a Leni Riefenstahl-Style Torchlit Military Ceremony
The bane of the injection-free
For a Chancellerin who ended 16-year reign by decreeing house arrest for the injection-free as an act of “national solidarity”, these esthetics seem wholly appropriate.
People who aren’t vaccinated will be excluded from nonessential stores, cultural and recreational venues, and parliament will consider a general vaccine mandate, German Chancellor Angela Merkel said Thursday, as part of an effort to curb coronavirus infections that again topped 70,000 newly confirmedin a 24-hour period.
“The situation is our country is serious,” Merkel told reporters in Berlin, calling the measure an “act of national solidarity.”
Good commentary from CJ Hopkins and Max Blumenthal:
The Großer Zapfenstreich (“Grand Tattoo”) is a military ceremony performed in Germany and Austria. It is similar to the military tattoo ceremony performed in English-speaking countries, and is the most important ceremonial act executed by the German federal armed forces, the Bundeswehr, and by the Austrian federal armed forces Bundesheer.
The Zapfenstreich is performed only during national celebrations and solemn public commemorations, to honour distinguished persons present at such special events. Examples are the farewell ceremony for a German federal president, or at the conclusion of large military exercises.
It takes place in the evening hours and consists of a military formation of at least one military band, two platoons of armed infantrymen, and two lines of soldiers carrying torches, in total about 400 men.
