Nationalist AFD Party Makes Strong Showing in German Elections

Angela Merkel has been weakened. Her time in the spotlight is nearing its end. Nationalism is on the rise. The rest that you may read is just speculation.


Chancellor Angela Merkel is in position to rule for a fourth term, according to early exit polls in Germany’s national election, which also saw voters send the right-wing Alternative for Germany party (AfD) to Germany’s parliament, the Bundestag.

German media characterized the results of Sunday’s vote as a major shift. Der Spiegel reports, AfD is the “first overtly right-wing party to win seats in the country’s federal parliament in over half a century.”

With around 33 percent of the vote, Merkel’s Christian Democratic Union party came in first in Sunday’s vote, but it was its worst showing since 1949.

“Of course we would have preferred a better result,” Merkel said, according to The Associated Press. But she observed that her party has been in power for the past dozen years, the last four of which have been “extremely challenging.”

The CDU is projected to hold 218 seats out of the Bundestag’s 631 total.

Merkel’s outgoing coalition partner, the Social Democrats, received just 20 percent of the vote, its worst showing ever. But it was enough for a second place result of 138 seats in parliament, according to early results.

“Today is a difficult and bitter day,” said SPD leader Martin Schulz, who had hoped to take the chancellorship from Merkel. Schulz announced that he will not partner in another grand coalition and that his party will go into opposition.

The so-called Jamaica coalition, which would see Merkel ruling together with the Greens and the liberal Free Democrats, is her likeliest path toward a majority in parliament. The coalition is so named because the parties’ colors of green, yellow and black mirror the Jamaican flag.

The AfD came in third Sunday, with early results showing it received more than 13 percent of the vote. The xenophobic party ran on an anti-immigrant platform with an emphasis on closing Germany’s borders to migrants. It had been fiercely opposed to Merkel’s recent welcoming of large numbers of refugees.

In the runup to the election, NPR’s Soraya Sarhaddi Nelson reports German voters were inundated with campaign posters, including ones from the anti-Muslim AfD party with the blunt slogan: “Burkas? We prefer bikinis.”

AfD’s co-leader Alexander Gauland vowed Sunday that the party would “change this country,” promising to pursue Germany’s established parties. “We will hunt Ms. Merkel. We will bring back our nation,” Gauland said.

The AfD is expected to hold some 87 seats in parliament.

Merkel told supporters Sunday that “we want to win back AfD voters” by solving the country’s problems and addressing their concerns, reports AP. She said Germany has to take the fears of its people seriously.

The final election results are expected early Monday, German time, but are not expected to deviate greatly from Sunday’s projections.

    • It is amazing. And they probably still vote for Grigor Gysi too!
      Look that guy up. He should be in the dictionary under “smug”.

      He calls Germans “Nazis” and says “Fortunately, the Nazis are not so good at having kids so they will die out.” How do these creatures actually get elected?

      • I wonder how bad the voter fraud is in germany? considering you can do hardtime for a anti immigrant post on facebook. I can imagine its a job for merkels Stasi to ensure illegal votes pass through

  1. Good news, but only 13% of white Germans are sane.
    “The xenophobic party ran on an anti-immigrant platform with an emphasis on closing Germany’s borders to migrants.”
    Hey AfD what is your policy? “We are a party of Xenophobia”.
    “Xenophobia” gives me the “full shits”, it is Jew Spew, like White Supremacy, Hate and Anti Semite.

  2. Unfortunately people don’t understand where Merkel is coming from.

    Von Mises was good friends with Albert Einstein and Richard Coudenhove-Kalergi, among other notable racist anti-whites.

    Einstein suggested that Europeans should be wiped out and replaced with the Chinese.

    Coudenhove-Kalergi was the father of the EU. In a 1925 interview he said “We intend to make Europe into a mixed race.” He planned the massive non-white immigration into Europe – the idea is very old. He designed the EU flag and selected the anthem. The EU was brought about with stealth.

    Angela Merkel actually won the Coudenhove-Kalergi Prize about 10 years ago. They award it every two years to the biggest anti-white genocidal maniac they can find in Europe.

  3. “Merkel told supporters Sunday that “we want to win back AfD voters” by solving the country’s problems and addressing their concerns, reports AP. She said Germany has to take the fears of its people seriously.”

    You have to hand it to Merkel, she says the most outrageous bullshit with a straight face. It looks like she’s been botoxed to the max to make it impossible to crack up laughing on TV though.

  4. Angela Merkel, born Angela Dorethea Kasner (July 17, 1954), is a jewess Dual-“Citizen” of Germany and Israel, who has German and Israeli passports. Her grandfather fought against Germany in WWI. In 2008, she received the “B’nai B’rith Europe Award of Merit” for fighting “anti-semitism”.

    Merkel’s mother was a jewess named Herlind Jenztchsh, (alt. Jentzsch). Her father, Kasner, was a jew, and was born with the name Kazmmierczak. He was a crypto-Converso jew who was a “devout” Lutheran pastor who had “sympathetic” views towards the communist regime of the GDR. She, Angela, was Helmut Kohl’s (((Hennoch Kohn’s))) “girl”. She was appointed by Kohl (CDU), then the Chancellor, to be the Minister for the Environment and Reactor Safety. The German people privately call her “Angela Hochverrat” meaning Angela High Treason. Others have called her “Merkiavelli for what some have dubbed her Machiavellian political tactics”.

    Angela Kasner was the eldest of her siblings, Marcus, and Irene. She joined the Free German Youth movement (East German communists), through which she showed leadership skills at a young age, and became District Board Representative and Secretary of Agitprop – the agitation and propaganda campaign of that movement. She and her family were given special privileges such as “easily crossing from West Germany to East Germany, and owning two cars.”

    Angela Merkel Under Fire Over Communist Links – New Image – Daily Mail Report

  5. “The Christian Democrats enjoyed using Merkel as their poster child for diversity, which helped her move up the party ranks.

    She retires [from her pressures as Chancellor] “to the small hideaway cottage she shares with her husband. The house lies at the bottom of a nondescript cobbled lane in the depths of the east German countryside near where she was brought up.”
    “The other factor often credited with giving her the edge over her still mostly West German contemporaries is her upbringing in Communist East Germany. She was born Angela Kasner in capitalist Hamburg in 1954 [Others say, Templin – and not Augsberg]. Her father, Horst, was a Protestant pastor who took the highly unusual step of moving with his wife Herlinde and Angela to Communist East Germany just a few weeks after his daughter’s birth. At the time, only convinced Communists were opting to stay in Soviet-controlled East Germany. Horst Kasner, a devout Protestant, was not one of them [Says an (MSM) Independent report].

    [Another report, A BBC documentary highlighted how Merkel’s Socialist father held boisterous debates around the dinner table. “Her childhood was also shaped by the Cold War – Merkel’s Socialist father held politically charged gatherings at his seminary and as she grew up, vigorous debates rang around the dinner table. — The family first lived in the small town of Quitzow before moving to the larger provincial East German town of Templin in 1957.”
    “She not only joined the Communist Free German Youth movement – which some critics still describe as the socialist answer to the Hitler Youth [Says the Independent report] – but also learnt Russian, the language of East Germany’s ultimate rulers.”

  6. German video: Angela Merkel 1st Juden: [Some say she speaks in Hebrew here, if this link still works].

    “Angela Merkel Net Worth is $11.5 Million. Angela Merkel is the current Chancellor of Germany; she has a net worth of $11.5 million. Angela Merkel has built her net worth as chairwoman of the Christian Democratic Union since 2000, and chairwoman of Angela Dorothea Merkel, German: ; nee Kasner is the Chancellor of Germany and Chairwoman of the Christian Democratic Union . Merkel is the first female Chancellor of Germany.”

    • You sound like a disinformation agent and a Hasbarat, Ojr, or merely stupid. Do you have links or information to back your assertion?

  7. Jews around world alarmed by far-right breakthrough in Germany

    Ronald Lauder, president of the New York-based World Jewish Congress, called Chancellor Angela Merkel a “true friend of Israel and the Jewish people” and decried the AfD’s gains at a time when anti-Semitism was increasing across the globe.

    “It is abhorrent that the AfD party, a disgraceful reactionary movement which recalls the worst of Germany’s past and should be outlawed, now has the ability within the German parliament to promote its vile platform,” Lauder said.”
