German Election: Merkel’s Pyrrhic Victory

Chancellor Angela Merkel has won a fourth term in office, but the real winner of the German election on September 24 was the Alternative for Germany, an upstart party that harnessed widespread anger over Merkel’s decision to allow into the country more than a million mostly Muslim migrants from Africa, Asia and the Middle East.

Preliminary election results show that Merkel’s center-right CDU/CSU alliance won around 33% of the vote, its worst electoral result in nearly 70 years. Merkel’s main challenger, Martin Schulz and his center-left SPD, won 20.5%, the party’s worst-ever showing.

    the real winner of the German election is the muslim invasion force

    with the left still in control of Germany, their fate is sealed

    15 years till Germany becomes a muslim majority

    allah akbar!

    …and next, coming soon to a country you live in

    AfD has a shot at governing in the next election. It is a long shot but a real one. If they can focus on the immigration issue (without sounding like the Nazis people accuse them of being) while talking sensibly about the EU and the Euro they could win. It will take some discipline but things are only getting worse in Germany and the actual Germans are getting fed up.
