On Sunday, the German governments equality commissioner made headlines by suggesting that it was time to make the national anthem less macho. So will erasing the word fatherland do the trick?
Kristin Rose-Möhring, equality commissioner in the Federal Family Ministry, believes it is high time that Germany changes the wording of its national anthem to make it more gender equal, newspaper Bild am Sonntag reported.
The word Vaterland (fatherland) should be replaced by Heimatland (home land) and the word brüderlich (brotherly) should be replaced by couragiert (courageous), she suggested in an internal government letter seen by the tabloid.
Why dont we make our national anthem, das Deutschlandlied, gender equal? Rose-Möhring reportedly wrote. It wouldnt really hurt, and it would befit the recent establishment of a ministry for building and the homeland. [ ]
But the German commissioners suggestion was slapped down by Chancellor Angela Merkel, whose spokesman Steffen Seibert said she is satisfied with the current anthem.

This world has gone full on stupid in less than 10 years.
Are there any Germans left?
What would Rommel say?
“Heimat” just opens up another can of worms....
Now, now, it’s taken longer than that.
On the positive side, there is a Hell, so the people who hate God won’t torment those who love good and truth in eternity.
"Über Alles" scans the same as "Allah Akbar".
Reich, wie an Wasser deine Flut,
ist Deutschland ja an Heldenblut!
The Heldenblut all soaked into the ground at Stalingrad.
Its not coming back.
They have muslime invaders raping and pillaging and they’re worried about this petty stuff?
Germany should get rid of its national anthem, its name and its people.
Except the “immigrants”.
If Germans won’t defend their wives and daughters, they have no business calling their man-deficient country the “Fatherland”.
Might as well, they certainly had their nutsacks removed.
Yes. Replace it with Caliphate.
I’ve never even approved of the Department of Homeland Security. Always sounds creepy to me.
Ich gabe auf.
Yes and they should replace it with Dar al-Islam; like good little dhimmi’s.
Thanks to their nutcase imbecile of a Prime Minister, they soon will be able to refer to their homeland as the Muslimland.
