    You either denounce terrorists, or you don't.

    Yeah, the Germans don’t do the whole free speech thing like we do. When I talk to folks over there, they generally speak in hushed tones about anything hot button. It’s crazy.

    The POTUS is taking 9,500 troops out of Germany. He is bringing those Soldiers home.

    Germany will lose a lot of money when those Soldiers and their families return to the USA.

    As mentioned, Germany does not have the same freedom of speech that we do here.

    Very sad.

    They need to repeal their anti-free speech laws.

    Maybe AfD can do it, but even the AfD seems to be politically correct lately, so I'm not holding my breath.

    Maybe all the Muslims that moved into Germany freely will help with that free speech problem?

    You either denounce terrorist, or you support them!
