Karl Lagerfeld, the creative director for fashion houses Chanel and Fendi, has ruffled feathers after telling the truth on the disastrous policies of German Chancellor Angela Merkel.
In a recent appearance on a French talk show, Lagerfeld, 84, referred to the atrocities against Jews during the Holocaust and how Germany is making another huge mistake on behalf of Jews in letting in so many Muslim refugees:
“You cannot kill millions of Jews and then take in millions of their worst enemies afterwards, even if there are decades [between the events].
“I know someone in Germany who took in a young Syrian who spoke a little English. After four days, do you know what he said to the lady? ‘Germany’s best invention is the Holocaust.’”
Lagerfeld criticized Merkel for trying to foster a “charming image” by taking in a million more refugees when she “already had millions who are integrated, who work, which is very good because the demography is a little bit in decline there.” The fashion designer said Merkel was obviously trying to change the optics “after the wicked step-mother image she gave herself in the Greek crisis.”
French viewers were very upset at Lagerfeld’s condemnation and called into the station with charges of racism and Islamophobia, according to The Times of Israel, and an investigation into the complaints has begun.
Apparently, for the white flag waivers in Europe, the truth hurts.
