German Chancellor Olaf Scholz called those who criticized the West’s effort to pump Kyiv with weapons “fallen angels from hell”— not peace advocates.
RT, the Russian news outlet, reported that Scholz addressed a crowd in Munich and was taunted by some in the audience. He was called a “loser” and a “warmonger.”
He brushed off the hecklers and said the people claiming to be peaceful doves are, in fact, “fallen angels, that come from hell, because at the end of the day, they make the case for a warmonger.”
He did not mention Russian President Vladimir Putin by name, but it was clear who he was referring to.
Scholz said the goal in the West is not regime change in Moscow.
TRENDPOST: The Trends Journal has reported extensively on Scholz’s evolution from sober-minded leader to warmonger. (See “GERMANY’S SCHOLZ SLAPS BACK AT PROTESTERS, SAYS ENDING WEAPON FLOW TO UKRAINE WON’T END WAR” 7 Mar 2023, and “BERLIN PEACE RALLY, LIKE U.S. PEACE RALLY, DENOUNCED BY MEDIA AND POLITICIANS” 28 Feb 2023.)
It is notable that Scholz was at a campaign event when he made the comments to the peace protesters. He is in a political fight for survival. Establishment politicians in Germany are pressing panic buttons amid the surge in popularity for the country’s top “far-right” political party—the Alternative for Germany, or AfD—that seems poised to make gains in local and national elections based on financial hardship and disgust for the ruling elite.

One X user posted that Scholz is likely all in on the war for two main reasons. 1) The “far-right” AfD is growing in popularity with its no-war message, and 2) Scholz thinks that winning a Nobel Peace Prize could benefit his campaign.
“Biden and his fans should stop making Olaf Scholz a warmonger and hurting Germany’s economy by war,” the user posted.
