The AfD or Alternative for Germany is the main far-right opposition party in Germany these days and is a potential danger because its ranks are most likely filled with neo-Nazis, one reads time and time and time again. None of the other parties will work with them.
This guy, on the other hand, is a real neo-Nazi from the National Democratic Party (NPD) so the danger is real and therefore less, I dunno, dangerous, I guess. The same parties just elected him mayor of a small town in Hesse.
Senior politicians in Germany’s ruling parties have voiced anger at the election of a neo-Nazi as mayor of a town in the central state of Hesse.
Local councillors representing Chancellor Angela Merkel’s Christian Democrats (CDU), its governing partner the centre-left Social Democrats (SPD), and the liberal Free Democrats (FDP) all voted for Mr Jagsch.
“The NPD candidate filled the vacuum.”
