If you didn't get it, two political leaders of left-hand center recently said "Homeland" and it meant nice. "We love this country. It's our homeland. This homeland is not split, "said top candidate of Greens, Katrin Göring-Eckardt, at Small party congress in direction of AfD and or demagogy. "I am convinced who yearns to go home, who is not from yesterday," said federal president Frank-Walter Steinmeier on a single holiday in direction of AfD voters. The message is clear: if Alexander Gaula wants to bring back land and people, middle will get back a piece of interpretation of what se two actually matter. Equally clear: that left of two did not all find so nice, how casually a social democrat and especially a green one suddenly operated with this presumed Naziwort.
It would now be close to defining home in circuit. Something like this: The German homeland is place where re is a word like homeland – it is pronounced by wrong person in wrong place – in a jiffy a whole indignation network is laid. Where rationally disciplined part of left of naïve Swarmers, to whom Homeland is a self-evident, warm, non-confined term, meets with a vehemence, Indians also resonate a quite having heritage: diefrontale schooling, Which, of course, does not tolerate contradiction. "Homeland", so green youth on Twitter taught someone who questioned ir definition of homeland as a "narrowing term", "is a concept of counter-enlightenment and irrationality. It is no coincidence that he was created in romance and was needed in NS. " So far, so clear? Then, please, immediately kill your Eichendorff poems, you Nazi!
And please answer following questions: What do you need term for? Do you not know that people in your mouth, with whom you certainly do not want to have anything to do, have keyword Thuringian homeland protection? Yes, do you not have a simple "home" if you want to describe place where you feel safe, secure and oriented, perhaps even: free? What do you need home for, Mrs Göring-Eckardt, Mr Steinmeier-and all ors who do not want to leave it? Wher Kölschrocker or refugee – what do you think?is home delimited?
You could now, of course, if you don't want to listen to unpleasant-, also simply listen to pleasant-. Also Berlin linguistics Professor Anatol Stefanowitsch, who is probably smartest person in German-speaking Twitter, can not start so much with term homeland, as Taz was recently to take. Even more: "If Homeland becomes a political concept, it becomes dangerous, because n homeland becomes something that is threatened by those who seek a home. If political concept of homeland is extended from a concrete place to an entire country, a nation whose membership is determined by ancestry is created. That cannot be a home for anyone for whom it is not home, and which cannot be home to anyone for whom it has not always been. " It can be seen that re is something to it, that also very clever Katja Bauer in Stuttgarter Zeitung has jumped in on this point: as a concept of fighting, word homeland is "dangerous". "A non-small group has a painful feeling of forfeiting sovereignty of interpretation of what is to remain in this country, as it was." The bottom line: to take over concept of those who limit newcomers and demonize change is not a good idea!
The question is, is that so? That this term may and may not be positive for one or or private, but not a positive term in political sphere, left, especially? And can you humble people who reject this term concatenation, you can't just bend terms until y fit you? Is this last valid definition of homeland: A somehow agitated Sentimentklumpatsch, which is okay, wennNeugroßstädter thus expressing attachment to ir home regions, which are left behind after graduation, but which is danngefährlich when fascist in Once again claiming us a SafeSpace because emergency shelters for escaped and dieEhe for all to grow over his head? Does homeland politics always mean place where defiant biogermans eat grilled sausages from pig at Martinsumzug to show it to ir Muslim fellow citizens so properly? Admittedly, ugly self-image of local from left to right fits nurzu nicely.
