Ravensburger 'Spectrum / south-west point
Merz or Röttgen! But Laschet? To us, the "election" for the "Christian" federal chairman in January 2021 not only seemed Spanish, but above all dishonest and shameless. In his speech, Armin Laschet placed the focus on the word "trust". Trust that a miner, like his father once was, must have in order to know that he will come back safely from the mine. Laschet even held his father's brand name in the cameras back then. Such vivid speeches are always well received.
But what happened next, and what we called "spanking piglet" at the time, had nothing to do with fairness or trust. "Trust me!" Laschet said to the 1,001 delegates. That would have been enough. Almost six months later, the vote of confidence in Armin Lachet (who in the meantime had also become a candidate for chancellor as chairman) was put to a tough test in North Rhine-Westphalia, and many flood victims are still of the opinion that Armin Laschet is not one can trust. And even in the CDU election campaign, things seem to be going wrong with Armin Laschet. In the graphic below you can see the survey values from January 2021 and from this week.

Election of the chairman: a dirty game of the German democratic Christians
RaSp / SW / CPH
While the very last minute of stoppage time is ticking down, Bayern player Joshua Kimmich is on the ground and won't get up anytime soon. In these last seconds of the DFB Cup game in Kiel, it is 2: 1 for the guests from the south. And EVERYONE - right down to the die-hard sturgeon fans and the "prophets" who had predicted a defeat in Bavaria - knew: THAT'S IT! Munich were one round further - with the typical "Bayerndusel", because their 1-0 was a clear and not as such denied offside goal.
But the referee had not yet whistled the game, which means that officially the game was still on. Even then, when Kimmich was finally able to walk again. Stoppage time of stoppage time. So the Kiel could start another - probably last - attack on the five-time world goalkeeper Kasten. Over the left to the middle of the penalty area - wonderful cross inwards over everyone - the ball hits the head of a stork and lands past Neuer in the top right of the net. Renewal! Insanity!
"Armin Laschet and Team" shot three offside goals yesterday at the digital party conference of the German and democratic Christians,
1. Offside goal: When a certain Jens Spahn took out his drum for 60 seconds in the question and answer session of stoppage time and advertised Armin Laschet in an outrageous way (= without feeling of shame). Everyone was shocked - at the PC screens, TV screens, in the control room and those present in the hall. The line referee AKK did not raise a flag - she was still CDU chairwoman - (although Spahn had crossed a line audibly for everyone), no final whistle from referee Paul Ziemiak. Irregular goal, definitely. But it was given by everyone. THAT'S IT.
But the final whistle has not yet taken place, which means that the election of the Christian chairmen, whose new chairman and "father of the nation" in his application speech - retrospectively - cheekily spoke of TRUST and at this point already knew about Spahn's action - has not yet officially been concluded . "Kimmich" got up and the game is still running ...
Because the delegates still have to confirm their digital cross in writing by postal vote. And since both elections are / were secret, there may well be a surprise. Because nobody can check whether the respective digital and then the written cross were made in the same place.
2. Offside goal: When it came to the vote on whether the speaking time should be limited to one minute within the aforementioned "question and answer session", Ziemiak said: "I'm in favor of it," and pressed his button. That was neither "secret" nor fair. It was manipulative.
3. Offside goal: And why is it actually "limited" to 60 seconds ?, we asked ourselves in the editorial team during the live broadcast. A simple question takes a maximum of 20 to 30 seconds (see video evidence) unless you want to give a speech. It can therefore be assumed that Laschet's "trust game" was an agreed-upon piglet (not to have to say "mess") game in which everyone, except for Friedrich Merz, who was prevented, was involved in this unclean game. And in the middle of it all, our pandemic minister, who has demoted himself to a SPAHNERKEL. By the way: after Spahn there were no more requests to speak or questions ...
