The title of my blog post is a quote from this news article: http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/opinion/editorials/ct-germany-nazi-past-merkel-afd-hoecke-nationalist-edit-0311-md-20170310-story.html

The following quote is from the news article:

Begin quote

The nationalist juggernaut sweeping across Europe has taken an ugly turn in Germany, where leading members of the right-wing Alternative for Germany (AfD) party have been calling for an end to atonement for Germany’s Nazi past. Bjoern Hoecke, one of the party’s leading firebrands, has urged the country to take a “180-degree turn” away from mindfulness of its Nazi history. He called Berlin’s famed Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe “a memorial of disgrace.” Germany’s history, he said, “is made ugly and ridiculous.”

End quote

The photo below shows the monument to the Jews  in the center of Berlin.

Jewish eyesore in the heart of Berlin must be torn down NOW

  1. Frauke Petry — the leader of the AfD — is easily the most sensible politician in Germany today — any German who does not vote for the AfD is insane.
