Kein Nazis!

I’d noticed a couple weeks ago that several of the political parties campaigning for office in Weimar were engaging in negative campaigning—with a somewhat consistent cross-party message: No Nazis in our government.

At times I am kind of oblivious to things that ought to be readily obvious to me—like Nazis running for city council.

Auf Wiedersehen!

I did recall having seen an Anti-Bayern campaign (“für ein Deutschland ohne Bayern”), but I’ve assumed it is a joke. As much as true Thüringen folk might hate the lederhosen folk to our south, Bavaria is a pretty nice place to visit.

Meanwhile, a couple days ago I was briefly talking about the local elections with a local—I learned that the Nazis are actually running. He told me that the campaign signs for the Nazis are typically posted quite high up on the poles—for the obvious reason that if they are easily reachable, then they would be vandalized. He also reminded me that the Nazi party is the NPD—which is something I should have known.

Armed with that information, I realized this morning that I was walking past vandalized Nazi campaign posters—taken off of a nearby pole and broken in half. I opened one up and snapped the picture below. I would suggest, that as a favor to the party, that everybody click through and explore the NPD-Thüringen website. Perhaps if everybody were to spend 5-10 minutes reading the website, clicking on its links, or whatever, we might eat up some expensive bandwidth.

Hopefully the ability to surf the Nazi’s website isn’t blocked from such useful electoral blocks such as people living in the United States, Israel, or South Africa.
