Angry, drunk and unemployed German wasps are invading Essex?
Stuff happens. Angry, drunk and unemployed German wasps have become a real plague here in Germany these days, too. Only they call them neo-Nazis here.
Neo-Nazism remains a fringe political movement in Germany, and these attacks should not be taken as a sign that it is becoming part of the mainstream. But the events in Heidenau are a disturbing reminder that neo-Nazi groups’ message of xenophobia and hate seems to be finding an increasingly receptive audience among ordinary Germans.
