YouTuber’s Viral Rant Leads to Group of 70 YouTubers Protesting Angela Merkel’s Policies on Global Warming

  • After YouTube star Rezo’s expletive-filled rant against Angela Merkel and her policies went viral, 70 other YouTubers came together with an open letter “urging Germans to shun her coalition’s parties at EU elections over their climate failings.”
  • The group of YouTubers urged voters not to vote for Merkel’s Christian Democratic Union (CDU) party, the CSU, which is the CDU’s Bavarian counterpart, the anti-immigration Alternative for Germany party or the Social Democrat party.
  • Angry over the establishment politicians’ failure to address climate control, the group said: “The irreversible destruction of our planet is unfortunately not an abstract scenario but the predictable result of the current policies.”
  • The group added: “The experts say clearly that the course taken by the CDU-CSU and the SPD is drastically wrong and is taking us into a situation in which the Earth is getting inexorably warmer, no matter what we do.”
  • In Rezo’s video, titled “The Destruction of the CDU,” he accused the current administration of “making policies for the rich while failing to act on crucial issues like global warming.”
  • The video has more than 7.5 million views, which has caused Merkel’s CDU to do damage control.
  • At first, party officials accused the YouTuber of “false claims” and “oversimplifying” issues before extending an invitation to a dialogue.
