He states emotionally that his country has changed for ever; that the European Union is finished and Chancellor Angela Merkel’s days are numbered.
‘Frau Merkel, she’s not right in the head,’ adds 46-year-old Siegbert Droese, pointing his finger at his temple.
‘She tells people from all over the Islamic world to come here to paradise. The numbers are mind-boggling and could reach ten million [when the migrants bring members of their families over to join them].
‘So many young men arriving every day with high testosterone and little respect for women mean the New Year sex attacks in Cologne will be repeated.
‘I am not alone in thinking this. The penny is dropping among ordinary Germans.’
What Herr Droese — president of the populist Eurosceptic party, Alternative for Deutschland (AfD) in the eastern city of Leipzig — says about German views on migrants is all too true.
According to a recent survey, half of the population is now sceptical that Mrs Merkel will cope with the huge influx.
This is despite her recent TV address to the nation — complete with Arabic sub-titles aimed at the 1.1 million migrants who arrived in 2015 and now live at the Government’s expense in 2000 camps, hotels and rented accommodation across the country — when she repeated her insistence that ‘we can do this’.
The tide is inexorably turning against her, and polls show her popularity is declining.
In contrast, the AfD, with an increasingly middle-class following of intellectuals and business people, hit an all-time high in an opinion poll released by best-selling newspaper Bild this week.
From a standing start when it was founded in 2013, it is now supported by 11.5 per cent of voters, making it the third largest political party in the country.
Nowhere in Germany do AfD’s demands for border controls and fewer migrants chime more easily with the mood than in the former Communist bloc in the east of the country.
Here in Leipzig, on Monday night, a local grassroots organisation called Pegida — Patriotic Europeans Against the Islamisation of the West — held an anti-migrant march and protest.
It was followed by a terrifying rampage through the city centre by a breakaway group of 500 thugs who set cars ablaze and attacked shops and fast food restaurants, some of them belonging to migrants.
Whether the vandals were attached to Pegida or simply anarchists intent on destruction is not clear. But some likened the damage to migrant-owned shops to the Kristallnacht attacks against Jews across Nazi Germany in November 1938 — one of the most emotive subjects in this country’s calender.
The mayor of Leipzig, Burkhard Jung spoke of ‘terror on the streets’ as he condemned the ‘naked violence’. But given the febrile mood over migrants that now pervades all of Germany, there will almost certainly be more reprisals from the Far Right in the future.
The scenes in Leipzig — which has taken in 10,000 Merkel migrants — came after the mass sex attacks in Cologne, western Germany, on New Year’s Eve.
During a barbaric night in that city’s main square, a substantial group of Arabic-speaking men among 1,000 male migrants there deliberately targeted and assaulted hundreds of women. A staggering 652 complaints were received by the police.
Across Germany, including in Stuttgart, Dusseldorf and Berlin — not to mention towns and cities in Sweden, Finland and Denmark — it was the same New Year story. Nearly 50 women in Hamburg complained to police of sexual harassment by ‘North African men’, who called them ‘bitches’ and shouted ‘Fiki’ to indicate they wanted to rape them.
Amid acrimony over a deliberate police and media cover-up to stop anti-migrant sentiment, Mrs Merkel started deporting some of the most blatantly illegal migrants. But the number arriving still tops 3,000 a day, and local authorities can’t cope.
On Thursday this week, Peter Dreier, the governor of the Bavarian town of Landshut, sent a bus full of 31 migrants to Angela Merkel’s office in Berlin with the message: ‘We can’t manage’.
They were allowed to stay in Berlin one night before being despatched straight back to Bavaria.
This bizarre and cruel game of political ping-pong shows that Germany is collapsing under the pressure of mass migration.
Gerhard Schroeder, Merkel’s predecessor as Chancellor, said this week that Merkel had ‘a lot of heart but no plan’ when she opened the borders to migrants in August, saying all Syrians were welcome.
Her mistake, he added, ‘was to allow an exception to turn into a new normality — an unlimited influx’.
The resultant criminality and chaos has caused Germans to become increasingly angry.
It is not just the thugs with shaved heads, bomber jackets and heavy boots who were seen in Leipzig this week.
There is fast emerging a new group of Right-wing activists — ordinary people with conservative values; devout Christians; those angered by the arrogance of Merkel’s out-of-touch political elite; and, now, an increasing number of women who are frightened to go out at night.
This powerful coalition is vociferously challenging Merkel’s open-door policy for those fleeing war in the Middle East and poverty in Africa.
Even a cursory glance at the latest police reports — now being released more freely — shows the shocking sex attacks are not going away.
Since New Year, a 17-year-old girl near Cologne has been sexually abused by a migrant from a nearby camp.
Meanwhile in Hamburg, there have been a string of assaults. A white nurse was harassed by a 25-year-old Eritrean; a group of girls groped by two ‘North Africans; a woman of 53 confronted by young men of ‘Arabian appearance,’ who exposed themselves, making obscene gestures.
Eight Afghan asylum seekers are accused of attacking a ‘large number of white women’; a 23-year-old Somali is under investigation for sexually abusing a ten-year-old white girl near a migrant reception centre.
Across the country, from east to west, it’s been the same. In Leipzig, eight days after Cologne, a local woman of 31 was accosted by 15 men, apparently Arabs and North Africans, who pinned her down as she walked through the railway station at midnight, and thrust themselves at her.
Only because she broke loose did she avoid being raped by two of the men — a Libyan, 24, and a Tunisian, 31, from a local migrant shelter — who were described by police as ‘her torturers’.
In Bornheim, North Rhine-Westphalia, a leisure centre has banned all migrants after a schoolgirl was sexually assaulted in its public swimming pool by three Syrian teenagers.
Merkel’s reassuring platitudes that Germany ‘can manage’ don’t convince her people. And nowhere is this more evident than in Leipzig.
In the town of Halle, a 20-minute drive away, the former four-star Maritim Hotel with indoor swimming pool, sauna and fitness room, was closed to guests last year after being turned into a giant migrant camp.
