Decorated French General Stripped of Military Privileges For Involvement in PEGIDA Protest:

A decorated and highly regarded French General has been stripped of his office due to his involvement in a proscribed protest organised by Patriotic Europeans Against the Islamisation of the West (PEGIDA) earlier this year.

PEGIDA, which nearly fizzled early last year, gained in popularity as hundreds of thousands of Mid-East asylum seekers responded to Angela Merkel’s open-door refugee policy by flooding across Germany’s borders. Initially, many Germans met the the migrants with hugs and gifts, but as the months wore on, sentiment gradually soured and attendance at PEGIDA rallies once again spiked with as many as 20,000 people showing up for an October demonstration.
