Angela Merkel Forced to Cancel “Tyrannical Lockdowns” After Intense Public Backlash
I’m here to remind you that “we the people” still have all the power, we’ve just been discouraged but things like the 2020 election and a lot of massive power-grabs.
But in the end, we’re still the bosses – and the sooner we remember that, the better.
The folks in Germany have remembered who’s the boss and they took to the streets and showed globalist Angela Merkel who was in charge, and as a result, she caved.
The rise-up happened over draconian-like COVID-19 lockdowns.
Merkel had some doozies planned for the upcoming Easter Holiday, and an already “sick-of-it” German population, said “ENOUGH,” and put their foot down and in the end, Angela gave in.
Here is some footage from anti-lockdown protests:

One day after imposing a 5-day ultra-strict lockdown set to take effect over Easter weekend (presumably to head off any holiday-inspired spread), German Chancellor Angela Merkel has abandoned the plan, though Germany is still planning to extend its current restrictions through April 18.
Merkel is dropping the plan after it inspired an intense public backlash and resistance by politicians in the opposition and Merkel’s coalition, anonymous sources reportedly told Bloomberg. Merkel informed the leaders of Germany’s 16 states in a video call on Wednesday morning that she was dropping the five-day lockdown, which would have closed all businesses. Even supermarkets would have been forced to limit operations.
The planned restrictions also prohibited private gatherings of more than five adults from two different households, and required Easter services at German churches to be conducted virtually, angering Germans who already spent their Christmas holiday isolated from family members. During a meeting earlier this week, Germany’s local leaders reluctantly assented to the Chancellor’s plan.
“I take full responsibility for this misjudgement,” Merkel told the state leaders. Asking forgiveness for the plan, she said that the shutdown was “created with the best of intentions” but it’s strictures are simply unable to be implemented.
Many within Merkel’s ruling Christian-Democrat-led coalition applauded her decision. Bavarian Premier Markus Soder said that he respected the chancellor’s change of heart, while pointing out that the proposed restrictions had faced questions over their legality, RT reports.
Merkel faced a barrage of criticism over the measures, including a ban on church services, which was particularly controversial.
Clergy, and even Interior Minister Horst Seehofer, a longtime political ally, urged the chancellor to reconsider. Some state leaders even proclaimed that they would not abide by the rule.
Prior to Merkel’s backtrack, Merkel said that her five-day lockdown would prevent a “third wave” of COVID.
France and the Netherlands have reinstated or extended their lockdowns to avoid the so-called “third wave.”
Germany has been in different stages of lockdown for about a year and people are growing more and more frustrated, and have taken go the streets en masse to protest.
