because they recognize similiarities like a "gleichgeschaltete Median...Journalist with "Haltung" etc....ever thought about that one?
It seems many East Germans are still traumatized by their experience in the GDR. Or else they would never come up with such comparisons. Just because the majority in Germany view things different than e.g. people in deep Saxony, it does not mean that the Presse is "gleichgeschaltet". You don't need to be in government employment to understand that Merkel's decision in 2015 was the only humane one.
To kill East Germany without putting it to a referendum was an awful idea.
That is not true at all. The election in 1990 was de facto a plebiscite over German reunification, and the party that promised immediate reunification (CDU) won, whereas those who tried to maintain the independence of the GDR did not even get above the 5% threshold. Keeping the GDR alive after the elections was a completely unrealistic scenario.
