The pro-forma party leader of Merkel’s CDU stepped down following the turmoils of the Thuringen Prime Minister revocation. The issue went out of control because the CDU had a non-cooperation resolution that would not allow any member to work with either AfD or SED (currently renamed to LINKE). We saw profuse Stalinist fake apologies for innocuous acts like congratulating a newly elected state prime minister of the “respectable” pseudo-libertarian party FDP. Now the bets are also open again on who the person will be that follows Merkel as a Chancellor. Maybe La Merkel – Allah may bless her and fear her wrath – must also revoke her aged, aaaaaaged announcement to retire from politics.
Rainald Becker, the editor in chief of public broadcaster ARD and its “Coordinator for Politics, Society and Culture”, tries to whitewash the party that ran the East German dictatorship. If you believe the party LINKE were the heir of the SED, you have understood nothing, he says. But have you understood nothing? You have. But you must know some details to recognize why LINKE is indeed not the heir of the SED. It IS the SED!
