Merkel against “Neo-Nazis”?

Just like they do in America, Liberals brand their opponents as “Neo-Nazis”—which may get embarrassing.

With the aid of the media, Angela Merkel’s fellow politicians are claiming the opponents of their open borders regime are “Neo-Nazis.” That may get embarrassing because these “Neo-Nazis” are likely to gain office for the first time. That will force Angela Merkel, assuming she wins re-election(!), to share power with people she has characterized in the most extreme way imaginable.

Will Merkel share power or will she treat them the way the deep state has treated Donald Trump?

AFP reports, “Merkel takes on hard-right in final German vote push.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel and her beleaguered rival Martin Schulz embark on a final push for votes Friday ahead of a weekend election, both seeking to beat back a challenge from the emboldened hard-right.

The 63-year-old Merkel, who polls say will cruise by a double-digit margin to a fourth term on Sunday, will rally supporters in the southern city of Munich, at the height of the Oktoberfest beer festival.

Schulz, 61, a former European Parliament president and leader of the centre-left Social Democrats (SPD), will take to the stage in a central Berlin square in a last-ditch attempt to turn the race in his favour.

Despite Merkel’s commanding lead, the latest polls point to storm clouds on the horizon.

The anti-immigration, anti-Muslim party Alternative for Germany (AfD) looks set to easily clear the five-percent hurdle to representation in parliament in a historic post-war first.

The prospect of some 60 MPs from a nativist outfit branded “real Nazis” by Foreign Minister Sigmar Gabriel taking seats in the Bundestag lower house has added urgency and angst to what had long been dismissed as a suspense-free campaign.
