Fake journalist Udo Ulkotte has done it again. He has come out with yet another book replete with conspiracy theories, lies and deliberate distortions - this time "proving" that journalists, politicians and Muslim immigrants are conspiring to "Islamicize" Germany. It is destined to become a best-seller.
Fortunately, Stefan Winterbauer at Meedia has read the book so that you and I don't have to:
Man sollte sich also lösen von dem, was die Ulfkottes sagen und meinen. Aber man muss sich mit “Mekka Deutschland” trotzdem beschäftigen. Weil, wenn man den Bestellungen auf Amazon glaubt, wieder viele Leute dieses Buch kaufen und lesen werden. Und weil das, was Ulfkotte da schreibt wirklich gefährlich und hetzerisch ist. Ulfkotte vergiftet mit seinen Veröffentlichungen das öffentliche Klima, er spielt bewusst mit Ressentiments und Vorurteilen, er zündelt.
(One needs to distance oneself from whatever the Ulfkottes say and believe. However, we still do need to deal with "Mekka Deutschland". Because, if the sales figures on Amazon are to be believed once again many people will buy and read this book. And because what Ulfkotte writes is really dangerous and inflammatory. Ulfkotte poisons the public opinion with his books, he deliberately plays with our fears and prejudices - he's a rabble-rouser.")
In his review, Winterbauer examines a number of the "facts" Ulfkotte uses in the book to support his basic premise and exposes them as lies and distortions. Maybe with Mekka Deutschland Ulfkotte is hoping to revitalize the moribund Pegida demonstrations.
