Merkel Mouthpiece Die Welt Suggests DNA-Based EU-Membership: "Greeks Are Not Real Greeks"

Submitted by Tyler Durden on 06/14/2015 12:45 -0400

In what sounds unnervingly similar to eugenics, Die Welt - the conservative German newspaper close to Merkel's CDU Party - unleashes an anti-Greek tirade warning that "Greece destroyed the European order before," and revives the racial theories of the Nazis, as the author of the article quotes 19th-century Austrian scholar Jakob Philipp Fallmerayer, a xenophobe and a slavophobe, who had invented the "Greeks are not real Greeks" theory in the context of the DNA-based eligibility for EU membership.

As KeepTalkingGreece reports,

In the context of the DNA-based eligibility for EU membership, the thesis of Conservative WELT and CDU clearly implies that apart from the fake Greeks, neither real Turks, Slavs and Albanians should be allowed in the European family of undiluted blood and pour races.

Racists to the bones

The authors makes a reference to the Battle of Navarino in 1827, during the Greek War of Independence (1821–32), where the Great Powers (Britain, France and Russia) destroyed the Ottoman armada thus creating a breakthrough in the Greek Independence War against the Sultan.

However, according to the author the motives of the Great Powers were not geostrategical as every political scientist would think nowadays, but noble and romantic.

“The three powers did that actually against their conviction (peoples should not rise up against their monarch), but because of pure romanticism because the classically educated Western Europeans did not want the descendants of Homer, Socrates and Pericles to be further suppressed by the Turks.” (...)

Oh dearie me, nasty wassist. I do disagree a bit though, Slavs are European though, arguments against this are ridiculous. Central European Slavs were historically part of the west if we define the west of Europe along Christian lines - the part under the pope and latter under Catholic and Protestant Christianity.
Whether the EU should be a Romance and Germanic-dominated union is a different matter, if people want it they should just say it instead of beating about the bush without all this "X isn't European nonsense".

As for Greeks, they're a shadow of their former self certainly and there's probably some truth in the saying that they've absorbed countless numbers of the surrounding peoples. Certainly the Greeks acting like somehow classical civilization was preserved in some not-so-isolated region of Europe is daft, but so is claiming every weak nation of the EU is not European.

If this German wants a Protestant-Catholic EU he should just say it instead of beating around the bush.

Reads like it was written by a sorely butthurt Greek.

Hmm? Like us, then? At least they have men in their parliament who call spades spades. This original German article is mean-spirited shit from the bastards who're doing their damnedest to destroy the entire Continent.

Fuck Die Welt, and long live the Megali Idea!

"And now if a whole nation fell into that? In such a case, I answer, infallibly they will return out of it. For life is no cunningly-devised deception or self deception, it is a great truth that thou art alive, that thou hast desires, necessities: neither can these subsist and satisfy themselves on delusions, but on fact. To fact, depend on it, we shall come back: to such fact, blessed or cursed, as we have wisdom for."
Thomas Carlyle

Or they could have read Lord Byron (or the many German Grecophile romatics) who already knew that roundabout 150 years ago.


Not in haunts of marble chill,
Temples drear where ancients trod,—
Nay, in oaks on woody hill
Lives and moves the German God.
