ANGELA MERKEL is facing the end of her political career at the helm of Germany, with more than 1,000 members of her Christian Democratic Union (CDU) party voting on a new leader - with Armin Laschet, chairman of the North Rhine-Westphalia, emerging victorious.

Gee, here I thought the naughtZees moved to Argentina. Hardly ‘ right wing’. Doh, silly me. Up is down, bad is good, backward is forward etc.
Any German freepers have the scoop on the new guy?
Basically the new “Karl Doenitz”.
I thought German Socialists finished up at Nuremberg, ... oh well ...
So what does this mean for world politics?
Angela decided to take a trip to Paris the other day. The French travel agent does not know who she is while checking her documents.
Angela: No, I’ll just be here for a few days.
Will she apologize for opening the borders like she did?
Don’t get me started on those memes...
A moderate ....a continuation of Merkel
As the CDU continues to lose votes to what we call the alt right
And she replied: Not since summer of '79.
Subtle, but good. lol!
Surprised they haven’t removed the “Christian” from the party name.
Auf weidersehn, meine schatze!
That’s funny but it’s a talk radio meme tossed around here that’s full of holes that Nazis and Communists are the same
They were not.
But wardaddy they called it national socialism you know
Yes and they also called East Germany the German Democratic Republic
The old circular political paradigms are better
Totalitarian at midnight and Authoritarian at your six
Germany had a lot of free enterprise and a lot of crony capitalism in armaments in particular and they emphasized nationalism over about anything
Russia only talked nationalism when fighting fascists ...and had essentially a state economy only
Both were police states and hegemonic and that’s where the similarity stops
Other major differences too
This meme to deflect that far right are Nazi like is the same nonsensical logic used by those who claim the democrat party has been evil since it’s inception and the GOPe is our golden rah rah and demonizing. Folks like Andrew Jackson and Martin Van Buren and so on
Politics is not so simple
This is Glenn Beck Mark Levin history lessons 101
And it’s failed us miserably
We lost Trump due to the GOPe more than to our foes the modern day Democrats
I’m not of the mind to excuse the GOPe anymore
Only half of Germany is a member of a church
In America it’s not much different though our attendance rate is considerably higher
>>Any German freepers have the scoop on the new guy?
He’s a Soros lackey who is so pro-muslim that his nickname is “Turkish Armin”.
