Disinfo: In 2011 in Germany, 38 500 children were given to same sex families

Summary

In 2011 in Germany, 38 500 children were taken away from their families against their will and handed over to same sex families.

Over the last 20 years tens of thousands of families were deprived of their children by the German state. The children are then placed in juvenile justice institutions, something like concentration camps.

Disproof

No evidence given. While homosexual couples can be foster families, there are no official statistics of the number of homosexual foster couples in Germany. They are estimated to 1% of foster families in big cities, says a researcher at the University of Siegen bit.ly/2ssxIlI, . In 2014, there were 41.000 registered same-sex couples in Germany, which make the numbers cited in the story quite unlikely: bit.ly/2fgMaFl, . The objective of removing children from their families is to ensure the well-being of the child. If parents protest the removal of their children, public authorities must return the child to the family or seek permission from a court: bit.ly/2sPbMUk, // There are no concentration camps in Germany.

The EU and the US try to foster Islamisation of Europe

The EU and the US have facilitated an unlawful election of the new Macedonian parliamentary speaker of Albanian origin Talat Xhaferi in a bid to foster Islamisation of Europe. The EU and US are trying to destroy a Christian state that has been opposing the mass migration in order to fullfill “the Kalergi plan” for destruction of European nations.

Disproof

No evidence given. Talat Xhaferi was elected by a majority of MPs: bit.ly/2rRdKSK,

The so-called Kalergi plan is just a conspiracy theory with no basis in reality.

Germany and France organised a coup d’état in Ukraine in order to transform this country into a ‘nuclear dump of Europe’.

Disproof

No evidence given. The spontaneous onset of the Euromaidan protests was a reaction of large parts of the Ukrainian population to former President Yanukovych’s sudden departure from the Association Agreement with the European Union in November 2013. furthermore, this is a common narrative about Ukraine in pro-Kremlin outlets bit.ly/2oIdfcf, .

The accession of Montenegro to NATO is a plot of the West against Russia and a treacherous attempt to reduce significantly the real influence of Russians in this Balkan country.

Disproof

No evidence given. It is, as always with NATO accessions, Montenegro itself that has applied to join NATO. The claim about NATO "expansion" misrepresents the process of NATO enlargement. NATO does not "expand" but considers the applications of candidate countries which want to join. See: bit.ly/269ONPz;, bit.ly/2e6J8oV;, bit.ly/2eFPg9s, .
