The German "protest party" AfD (Alternative for Germany) and the neo-Nazi NPD appear to be joined at the hip: the voters make few, if any, distinctions between the two. In the last elections the AfD emerged as the leading political party in east German state of Saxony-Anhalt, while the Nazis made surprising inroads in the supposedly more enlightened western Geman state of Hesse. The ARD TV news program Kontraste sent reporters to to both areas to find out what the voters were thinking.
What they learned was disturbing. Have a look at these "protest voters".
So the one voter visited Buchenwald and didn't see any gas chambers: voting for the Nazis makes perfect sense!
What is amazing is that these citizens all complain that the refugees are getting preferential ("bevorzugte") treatment, but yet can't cite any examples except that they were forced to wait longer at the hospital or clinic to see a doctor.
They complain about all the crimes committed by refugees, yet can't explain why the statistics show that crime is down. The crime statistics must have been fabricated by the "Lügenpresse"!
What is clear is that these voters are all animated by one thing: racism.
We have a good description for folks like these in the United States: Trump-Voters!
