87% of Germans are shocked about the win of the far-right Alternative für Deutschland (AfD). The first time after World War II, a populist political party with racist features enter the Parliament. Majority of German and international analysts blame Merkel’s migration policy for the rise of AfD and the losses of CDU and sister party CSU. Some dare to blame also of the “implemented austerity policy”, “the zero rates policy” and a protest vote by those who fell “underprivileged” especially in East Germany where AfD rose to second party with 20 percent.
While analysts and German democratic political parties still try to understand… the vice president of Greece’s major opposition party, conservative New Democracy, found who is responsible for the AfD win: Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras.
Θυμάμαι τον Αλέξη να δεσμεύεται ότι θα αλλάξει την Ευρώπη, ανοίγοντας τα σύνορα και στέλνοντας τόσους μετανάστες στην Γερμανία την άλλαξε…

“I remember Alexis committing himself to change Europe, opening the borders and sending so many migrants to Germany, he changed it [Europe]…”, ND Vice Adonis Georgiadis of a far-right background tweeted on Sunday night.
Adonis Georgiadis as former member of LAOS has himself a far-right background and he has been hardly trying to hide his own xenophobic views after he joined ND in 2012 and became vice president under neo-liberal Kyriakos Mitsotakis in 2016.
In the last one and a half year, it has been the Top Slogan of New Democracy to blame Tsipras and SYRIZA for all the plagues in the domestic landscape. Now this ‘devil’, this ‘red Armageddon’ exports his immense power and influence also abroad. #WOW
PS In the whole discussion about AfD rise and migration, I see not one in Germany and abroad blaming the war in Syria as the main cause for the Migration Crisis in Europe.
