More of Führer Merkel’s gift to the German people: the breakdown of social cohesion.
The new political party, Alternative for Germany (AfD), founded in 2013 as a response to Merkel’s mass migration policies, was meeting to elect new party leadership after their stunning success in Germany’s last election. As with Trump, the red/green totalitarians have activated their armies. German police used water cannons to disperse hundreds of rioters, who tried to block access to the anti-migrant party’s convention in Hannover. Frank Pasemann, an AfD member of the Bundestag, claimed on Twitter that a colleague, Kay Gottschalk, was attacked by 15 “anti-fascist terrorists” as they made their way to the conference center.
Described as “far-right,” AfD is subject to the same vicious campaign of smear, defamation and libel that all of us who oppose the left/Islamic agenda suffer. The leftist/Islamic alliance in the media and in the street have been on a jihad to destroy the movement.

Scuffles broke out last night as protestors attempted to break through a police cordon set up on the road to the congress centre in Hanover, where the right-wing party is meeting to elect a new party leadership.
Police also took action after protestors set up illegal road blocks.
Frank Pasemann, an AfD member of the Bundestag, claimed on Twitter a colleague Kay Gottschalk was attacked by 15 “anti-fascist terrorists” as they made their way to the conference centre.
Hanover police spokesman Uwe Lange told a press conference on Friday they were expecting around 8,000 demonstrators.
Protestors on the streets of Hanover ahead of the AfD party congress
Anti-AfD activists waved placards reading “Hanover against Nazis” and “Stand up to racism”, underlining the divisive impact the party has had since it rose to enter the Bundestag lower house for the first time in the September 24 election.Members will vote for two senior officials who will determine whether AfD doubles down on its anti-Islam message or softens its rhetoric to broaden its support base before two regional elections next year.As the congress got underway, AfD leader Joerg Meuthen, a moderating force expected to win re-election, praised the party often beset by internal strife for showing unity after two senior members quit in September in protest against what they saw as an unstoppable populist streak.
“There are people in this country who don’t only say ‘We can do this’ but who actually manage to do something,” Meuthen told delegates, putting a new twist on Chancellor Angela Merkel’s “Wir schaffen das” (We can do it) message to those who doubted Germany can deal with a record influx of migrants in 2015.
