Angela Merkel's Party Loses Regional Election

This story was put into the chatroom of the BlogTalkRadio show of the English Defence League.

In her own home region of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, German Chancellor Angela Merkel's Christian Democrats (CDU) lost in the regional election to the Alternative for Germany (AfD) party.  The AfD has been described as "right-wing", "populist", "nationalist" and "anti-immigrant".  The CDU came in third, with the Social Democrats (SPD) coming in second.

I take the term "anti-immigrant" with a grain of salt.  These days, if you're against having your country take in unlimited numbers of poorly vetted and medically un-screened immigrants and refugees from parts of the world in which the culture is very different from your own, and show any concern at all for how these immigrants and refugees might affect the well-being of your own people, you're "anti-immigrant".

But enough of my two cents.  Read more at The Globe And Mail, Sky News, Reuters, the Sunday Express and Deutsche Welle.
