❌ Germany: Anti-Semitic Muslim rappers who made fun of Holocaust victims, win Germany’s top music award

At the annual Echo Awards on Thursday evening the rappers Kollegah and Farid Bang were awarded the best album award for their recent release “Jung, brutal und gutaussehend 3”.

For weeks, the fact that the two rappers had been nominated for the award had caused controversy in the German press due to their anti-Semitism.

On the album, Farid Bang raps about his training regime, boasting that “my body is more defined than an Auschwitz prisoner’s.”

The award came on the day that Israel marked Yom HaShoah, its Holocaust Remembrance Day, dedicated to the six million Jews killed by the Nazis during World War II.

Kollegah had another anti-Semitic  incident due to a 2016 music video which appears to show a Jewish man at the head of a secretive global banking conspiracy.

Earlier in the evening the singer Campino – frontman of die Toten Hosen – used his acceptance speech for the rock award to criticize the two rappers.

Campino, one of Germany’s most famous musicians, was visibly nervous when giving his speech. He started by saying that provocation in music is generally an important and good thing. But he went on to say that tolerance stops “when people make insults that are misogynistic, homophobic, right-wing extremist, or anti-Semitic.”

His speech was met by a standing ovation from the crowd.

When Kollegah and Farid Bang received their award later in the evening segments of the crowd booed while some people walked out of the theatre.

Rather than directly addressing the controversy of their lyrics, the rappers took the opportunity to mock Campino’s nervous speech.

Kollegah imitated the rock singer’s trembling hand as he spoke, before revealing that he had drawn a picture of the Campino with a halo over his head. He claimed he would auction it for a good cause.

The decision by the Echo judges was met with immediate criticism from the Jewish community.

“Disgraceful! Today in Israel and worldwide people are remembering the Holocaust on Yom Hashoah,” the American Jewish Committee tweeted from its Berlin office. “At the Echo 2018 two rappers have been nominated for a prize who have made fun of Auschwitz victims and spread anti-Semitism.”

  1. Despite the wrong being perpetrated by the two German rappers ; there are two sides to this outcome. It very much appears that people are protesting over the injustice – from the audience, other musicians plus the press;
    fortunately, there is some balance or challenge to the level of disrespect. ………………………………………………………………………..
    The down side is; Nazi Muslims, are increasing in Germany & they would have to be the very worst combination; (there is a tendency to be amoral or deranged). The fact that, their “vomit was successfully sold as music” to the German public,, is cause for concern. As history shows, young Germans are very susceptible to propaganda.

  2. What have the German people learn from their deplorable Jew hating history as a nation of murderers?
    Not much it seems.
    Shame Shame Shame.
    But the G-D of Israel is having the last laugh.
    He is filling Germany with plagues of Muslims.
    The current generation will now suffer from the past sins of the fatherland by perpetuating and glorifying their repugnant past.
