Interim Election Finds Merkel's Party In Third Place Behind "Anti-Immigrant Party" and "Anti-Islam Party"
From the BBC:
Angela Merkel's ruling CDU party has been beaten into third place by an anti-immigrant and anti-Islam party in elections in a north-eastern German state, TV exit polls suggest.
The Alternative fuer Deutschland (AfD) party took 21.4% of the vote behind the centre-left SPD's 30.2%. The German chancellor's CDU was supported by only 19.8% of those who voted, according to the exit polls.
The vote was seen as a key test before German parliamentary elections in 2017.I put the quotes in the title because such terms do not deserve respect.
The truth is, these parties are not anti parties, and they are not, as the media is wont to advocate - hate parties.
They are pro-Freedom, pro-Western Values parties.
