Alternative For Germany Party Buoyed By “Every Swastika On The Streets Of Athens”

… and this is how it goes, the worst nightmares of recent history return, again.

 

A month ago we discussed the rising anti-Euro sentiment in the core of Europe and the “Alternative for Germany” party appears to be growing in strength. As the NYTimes reports, this is a party driven a collection of elites (not a groundswell from the streets) tired of Merkel’s “flagrant breach of democratic, legal, and economic principles.” While we warned that the forthcoming ‘wealth tax’ will raise the ire of the southern-European elites (and thus increase the likelihood of a euro breakup), it appears this small-but-growing party in Germany is pushing in the same direction, as one member noted, “we keep giving out more and more money when we have so many problems at home.” Polls show as many as 1-in-4 would consider voting for the new party, and “they don’t need more than 5% to make things very tight for [Merkel].” The increasing tension in Europe (and rising anti-Germany sentiment) is helping raise membership as “every swastika on the streets of Athens” reduces Merkel’s support, and, as members note, “if the euro fails, Europe will not fail,” amid nostalgia for the former German Mark.
