Diversity Macht Frei
September 13, 2016
Oktoberfest is the traditional Munich beer festival, misnamed slightly since it actually starts in September. You might think a beer festival would be a good place to dodge Muslims. Not so, it seems.
Visitors to the tent of the German beer-maker Hacker-Pschorr will be greeted with a ridiculous image showing a burka-wearing woman.
Anyone who queries this or complains to the company about it gets a standard form letter in replay, which concludes in menacing style as follows:
It is a picture and not a political statement; it depicts contemporary Munich in all its aspects. … Please note that we refer for prosecution emails sent to us with contents that are insulting or incite hatred against peoples.
