The nationalist Alternative for Germany party (AfD) made sweeping gains in regional elections on Sunday, inflicting heavy losses on Angela Merkel’s Christian Democrats (CDU).
Björn Höcke, a politician who has been compared to Hitler by German national television, led the AfD to second place in the eastern state of Thuringia with 23.8 per cent, according to initial projections.
This is the horror of course. Righties getting closet to power.
The AfD was held off by the Left Party of the current regional prime minister, Bodo Ramelow, which came first with 29.5 per cent.
Who are the left?
The result will be seen as personal vindication for Mr Ramelow, Germany’s first regional prime minister from the Left Party, a successor to the former East German communist party.
The commies. Who also slaughtered their way across East Germany in their time. But they are the saviours…..
