Hard right stuns with huge election gains in Frankfurt. This is caused by Merkel flying in the face of common sense and pissing off the natives by bringing in 10’s of thousands of Muslim refugees, many who aren’t very nice. Perhaps the Germans should start practicing their seig heil salute.

The anti-immigration Alternative for Germany (AfD) stole huge amounts of votes off the established political parties in elections in central Germany, while a small neo-Nazi party won 17 percent in one district.

Funny that when you do things that the population doesn’t like, they have a tendency to react. Damn democracy getting in the way of their evangelical progressivism…

So, Sweden is going hard right because their “wonderful” healthcare system sucks major ass, and Germany is going hard right because their chancellor’s plan to give the country to the goat fuckers sucks major ass.
In the meantime, we are getting slammed because Trump and Cruz are running on national pride and stopping illegal immigration!
What’s wrong with this picture?

What is that thing about people not learning from the past and repeating it?

‘Benno Hafeneger, a professor at the Philipp University of Marburg who specializes in right-wing extremism, told The Local that the AfD’s success was due to “a search for fast, easy answers”.’

Sometimes the fast easy answers ARE the right answers. Got a hole in your boat? Step 1 – plug the hole.

“”It’s terrifying,” Eva Högl, vice chairwoman of SPD in the national parliament, told broadcaster ARD”

Funny. Same way the Establishment politicians in the US are reacting right now.

I had a conversation (?) with a gentleman who claimed that Germany invented UFO’s and Merkel is actually Hitlers surviving daughter…..I was beginning to wonder if that made more sense than the shit going on in Europe right now…

That’s getting well into tinfoil hat territory but this article does show that it’s not just US citizens that are sick of the status quo/bungling, corrupt politicians.

Nobody ever did find an explanation for those “foo fighters”, you know . . .

So, Dave Grohl is an alien? That explains a lot.

You know what? I’ll buy that… why the hell not…?
