Long dismissed as a conservative conspiracy theory by the mainstream media, liberal leaders have been left speechless by Chancellor Angela Merkel’s shocking confession that there are dangerous Islamic “no-go areas” in the country of Germany.
The notion there are places in Germany outsiders — including police — can’t visit has previously been dismissed by officials and the mainstream media.

In an interview Monday with German broadcaster n-tv, however, the truth finally came out.
Merkel said she favors a zero tolerance policy on crime and that includes preventing no-go areas, “that’s areas where nobody dares to go.”
She added: “There are such areas and one has to call them by their name and do something about them.”
Asked to name the areas, Merkel’s spokesman Steffen Seibert told reporters Wednesday that “the chancellor’s words speak for themselves.”
Interior Ministry spokesman Johannes Dimroth likewise declined to identify no-go areas, saying security was a matter for local not federal authorities.
The idea has frequently been denied as a conspiracy theory by the mainstream. Liberal fact checking site Snopes wrote an entire article dismissing the idea as totally false.
Looks like the facts have finally come forward.
