Yesterday, the German state of Thuringen found a new Prime Minister in Thomas Kemmerich of the pseudo-libertarian party FDP. After Angela Merkel let it known from South Africa that she was not pleased and that he should be sacked the outrage crescendo reached deafening levels and saw the man resign today. But it was not just her verdict that a vote for Kemmerich in coinciding with a congruent vote from the dark Lord-and-his-mother-be-with-us party AfD were “unforgivable”. The media saw the rise of fascism upon us and a woman of the SED (now renamed as LINKE) threw a bunch of flowers to his feet. And can’t even go through the backstabbing and flipflopping here, but the destruction of a once fairly free country is palpable and the conflicts continue to escalate.
