Comment AEC: The “Nazi”-slur for normal people does not work as previously. Now, the left-green political and media establishment calls almost a third of East German citizens far-right bigots and Nazis (not even taking into account probable voter fraud and those who are afraid to be associated with AfD). Among young voters in Saxony, over 50 % voted AfD. As the elites further disregard the will of the people, keep in mind my warning of a potential future real far-right back lash as a reaction to the recent far-left trend. The anger might be unjustly directed against migrants instead of the politicians who caused the migration crisis.
Yesterday, the populist Alternative für Deutschland (AfD) party made historic gains in two crucial east German state elections, significantly increasing its support but ultimately failing to dethrone the CDU and SPD.
The election’s results come as a significant blow to Germany’s pro-globalist coalition between Merkel’s Christian Democrats (CDU) and the Social Democrats (SPD), both of which lost thousands upon thousands of voters to AfD.
In Saxony, AfD gained nearly 28 percent of the vote while in Brandenburg the party garnered 23.6 percent of the vote, making it the second-largest party in both east German states.
Berlin AfD chief Georg Pazderski described the election results as a “great success”.
An initial poll analysis shows that the party was able to mobilize several hundred thousand individuals who had never voted before.
Preliminary final results for Saxony’s regional elections show Merkel’s CDU at 32.1 percent of the vote, down from 39.4 percent in 2014. The far-left Die Linke garnered 10.1 percent of the vote, down from 18.9 in 2014, while the center-left SPD took home just 7.7 percent, down from 12.4 in 2014.
Conversely, AfD skyrocketed from just 9.7 percent in 2014 to nearly 28 percent. The leftist Greens made modest gains as well, garnering about 8.6 percent of the vote.
The same pattern was seen in Brandenburg.
Support for the SPD shrunk from 31.9 percent in 2014 to 26.2 percent, while support for the CDU contracted down to 15.5 percent from 23 percent in 2014. Support for the far-left Die Link party also decreased from 18.6 percent in 2014 to 10.7 percent.
Yesterday, AfD, on the other hand, saw their support in Brandenburg surge from 12.2 percent in 2014 to 23.6 percent.
The fact that the AfD has been able to rise to its current electoral position – despite it only being six-years-old and despite the mainstream press painting it as a racist far-right party – is nothing short of miraculous.
As each election passes, it’s becoming increasingly clear that Alternative for Germany is, in fact, the People’s Party.
