Merkel Stunned By Defeat To Anti-Immigrant Party In Her Home State

Tyler Durden's picture

Last Thursday we previewed that in today's regional election in Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania, the home state of Angela Merkel, she was looking at the unthinkable: losing and not just to anyone but to her nemesis, the anti-immigration AfD. This is what we reported: "According to the latest shock poll, released late on Wednesday, the AfD is leading the CDU by 23 percent to 20 percent, with the Social Democrats, who currently run the rural state in coalition with Merkel’s party, at 28 percent support. What’s more, according to Bloomberg the AfD’s recent history in regional votes suggests it will perform better on election day than predicted in polls."

Sure enough, according to the first exit polls released moments ago, Merkel's CDU has come in third, in line with expectations, and more importantly, behind the AfD, which is the only party to see popular support in the elections as all other major parties have seen an exodus in popularity

  • SPD 30.5 %, -5.1%
  • AfD 21 %, +21%
  • CDU 19 %, -4.0%
  • Linke 12.5 %, -5.9%
  • Grüne 5 %, -3.7%
  • NPD 3.5 %, -2.5%
  • FDP 3 %, 0.2%

The second exit poll does not show any notable change:

  • SPD 30.4%
  • AfD 21%
  • CDU 19.2%
  • Linke 12.6%
  • Grüne 5%
  • NPD 3.3%
  • FDP 2.9%

The media Europhiles are once again disturbed, and quickly point out that Mecklenburg is Germany's poorest state, which is indeed the case.

What the apologists don't realize is that in a world in which the middle class is disappearing due one after another failed central bank policy, what happened in Germany's poorest state today will happen in most other places soon enough (and already did in the UK, the same place all the apologists said a vote for Brexit was unthinkable).

The good news, according to ARD, is that - for now - the grand SPD-CDU coalition in Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania can continue, but the real news is that Merkel's CDU has been beaten by by an anti-immigrant party. As Bloomberg put it last week, "defeat in her home state by the AfD would prove a political embarrassment for Merkel, and likely reignite grumblings about her refugee policies among some in her bloc.

What makes the defeat even more bitter is Merkel's aggressive recent campaigning in her home state: she has campaigned hard to win back support, crisscrossing Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania in recent weeks. Yet ironically, she’s adopted a law-and-order tone at rallies, calling for a larger police force and “more video surveillance of public spaces", precisely the things potential voters loathe the most. Just as inexplicably, she’s doubled-down on the question of refugees, refusing to step back from her “we can do this” slogan adopted last year as 1 million asylum seekers poured into the country. Her opponents have ridiculed the remarks as naïve.

It's only downhill from here: as reported before, Sunday's vote will mark the start of a tough month for the chancellor. It will be followed on Sept. 18 by a regional election in Berlin, where the CDU is trailing the SPD and has virtually no hope of winning power.

And now the fingerpointing begins.

She's not hanging by the neck from the top of the Brandenburg Gate; it's a bit early to celebrate.

AfD is the only real opposition party in Germany. All the others, CDU/CSU, SPD, Greens and the Left are in bed with each other. When 50% of the German voters vote AfD, I will have hope for Germany again.

Unfortunately, all the MSM in Germany is painting the AfD as recists, devils and Nazis and the brainwashed sheeple do what Goebbels predicted: "If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it".

eforce's picture

Germany doesn't have a lot of time, if they don't elect AfD in 2017 (which may still be too late), the state will likely collapse as a result of DeutscheBank going pop.

Germany has a total fertility rate of only 1.3-1.4 ... every generation is loosing about 40% of its population !

Despite all their materialist achievements, Germans are one of the worst human beings from a darwinian point of view ! Their way of life and ideology is nihilistic !

Western civilization is only optimized for wealth generation to the ultimate benefit of the (((money cartel)))! Afd will not solve any of these problems. 

Germany will be repopulated by population with higher darwinian capabilites like muslims and africans !

Too bad, Angela.  Pay close attention and take notes - our Democrats will show you how to fix an election, though that might not do you any good now.

Keep watching while the fat-assed frumps get yanked off the stage:  Merkel, Hillary, Yellen.

i hope you are right about the faf's.  would have liked never to have seen the slimmer and more male bush and obama versions as well.

merkel immigration policy is wrong-headed in many ways but the earlier poster with the big downvotes is right in part.  germany, europe, the advanced world (and much of the developing world, like iran and china) face a declining population.  this is the world's fate as will be plain in a couple of decades, especially if the world depression worsens.

it would seem to the advantage of the advanced countries to get the best immigrants possible, rather than illegals and whoever shows up in numbers too large to advantageously assimilate.

oh well, perhaps the bad luck of the advanced countries will work to the good of the poor ones.  glad i don't live in europe.

RiverRoad's picture

I agree that the earlier poster has a valid point.  It is a matter of sheer numbers now:  The average German man cannot compete wth the man with several "wives" and 9-10 children when it comes to offspring.  All playing into Soros' NWO plan however.  Glad I don't live in Europe either.

Germans are responsible reproducers.  The real solution is to allow Germans to reproduce at whatever rates they want and keep the immigrants out.

That way those Germans with more tendency to reproduce will fill up the country with people from the 21st century.  Not the the 7th century.


Do you not get that there are 7 billion people on the planet?  We don't need a bunch of rampant reproduction.

Merkel is too subservient to her enemies.

RiverRoad's picture

It does have that appearance.  Stupid woman.  She thinks they're her "friends".  She's only too happy to be used for the ultimate payoff, doesn't care who she serves up the in process.

True Blue's picture

The declining population is due to more and more of their time and effort being squandered and/or stolen by The State. People can't raise families because they are paying 35% + of their earnings in taxes, you have to work hard enough to feed a family of five or more in order to feed, clothe and care for a family of three. The groups with growing populations are all the recipients of largess, both State and private.

It would seem to the advantage of advanced countries to give their citizens with children a tax moratorium until their youngest turns 18; and to allow only limited, self supporting immigrants instead of subsidizing any kind of invasion.

About time they got rid of her.

Good riddance to her and her immigrant policy

Dutti's picture

True Blue, correct analysis. I would add that the ponzi scheme of "generational contracts" where the currently working individual is supposed to pay into a pool for current retirees needs to be adjusted. Any working person's/family's mandatory savings should be mostly saved/invested for their own later benefit.

DownWithYogaPants's picture

.........that means complete absence of state involvement in said "investment"

What I can not figure out is why they need all these unskilled (for the most part) refugees when automation and robotics revolution is just getting started? 

Haus-Targaryen's picture

All that needs to happen now: 


1) Something going *bump* in the night at some large financial institution.

2) Euro failing and the Bund going bankrupt

3) Free shit for the muzzies gets turned off 

4) Third world shithead muzzies do what third world shithead muzzies do best (riot and makes asses of themselves)

5) Population turns against them en masse 

6) Impoverished Germans who care more about leasing a new Mercedes and taking a new vacation will have nothing, and will have to seek meaning in life through other means (e.g., family) than stuff 

I still think Germany pulls out of the coming tribulation better than anyone else.

So what you are describing is a modern Weimar.  The shocking thing is thati could go down exactly like that.

What do you think happens when the banking system implodes and there are some 4 million people living here contributing nothing to the economy (as a whole) and are completely culturally incompatible with the domestic population?

I only hope the next adventure Germany goes on doesn't involving marching on Moscow. I really hope the Russians and Germans (for both countries' sakes) bury the hatchet and team up.  

UnschooledAustrianEconomist's picture

For some wicked reason the Russians love the Germans and despite all the MSM-NWO-crap about Evil Vlad Germans (and Austrians) more and more return that.

You hear me, my Russian brothers!?

jeff montanye's picture

trump 2016 would seem more conducive to such a turn of events than the alternative.

Herr, Haus-T...!

I respect your courage – telling us what Germans really think is rather dangerous still. Unfortunately your hope is wasted – Russians already in spring of 2014 signed an empire establishing act with the Chinoise, so the Eurasian empire is already born and w/o them Deutschen.

You have there in Germany this surprising hund-sorte "Treppenscheisser" and one bitch of this breed is in pretty high place. Maybe you should appeal to her, like – "go suck that Chinoise or Yakut di...k, and maybe the happiness will rain over us, normal Germans!"

UnschooledAustrianEconomist's picture

The times they are achanging, NWO is dying, and with this a much more eurocentric approach will come. Saying Russians and Germans stand together.

Actually people don't realize that the scum of SPD still got 30% and they lead - SPD is even a worse scum that CDU.

Nothing will change - SPD will continue even more aggresivly the fascists corporate globalist agenda under the disguise of socialism.  

glenlloyd's picture

Culturally incompatible is correct.

I got into an altercation at the super market the other day with a two women who were encouraging a baby to scream in the store. They had these two babies and it was so awful loud that I cringed as I passed them and then she commented about 'I saw what you just did' to which I said keep that thing quiet or take it outside, to which she started ranting about how it was a human being and had emotions.

She had the nerve to suggest that people ought not go out in public if they couldn't take the screaming, to which I said that's not my problem, it's yours, you're the one with the kid.

For the love of God where do these douche bags come from?

What's baffling to me in the context of recent anecdotes is that ANYONE AT ALL continues to support the nation-breaking, immigrant-injecting Establishment. I talk with Germans overseas who are deeply furious about what's happening.  Why is there not more fury at the polls and in the streets?  Or is it happening, and we're just not being allowed to see it?  We certainly hear anecdotes about major protests elsewhere that get squelched completely by controlled western media.

Another thing that remains unclear to me is how the tainted nations are going to clean themselves up.  For starters, you have the migrants and what exactly to DO with them (integration / assimilation seems a pipe dream), but more importantly, how do you rout the source of the agenda and set a wakeful populace on the road to future prosperity?  

It's strange that some of the same people who parrot the "overpopulation" / "Limits to Growth" gospel also seem to approve of the Soros migrant injections.  Self-regulating populations undermine their elitist-collectivist "You Need Us To Control You" meme, presumably, so they introduce human garbage in order to undermine the local values and culture and economy, thus ensuring perpetuation and advancement of the desired crisis  / dependency program?

No wonder they're called Crisis Creators. The whole thing is an unnatural, unnecessary, incredibly destructive fabrication.  Oh, for a reckoning...

In its core it makes perfect sense. They want fast and drastic depopulation along with huge standard drop for the rest. Multiculture serves multiple purposes. In early phase it kept our societies stable and economies booming because we actualy needed those workers. Now its used to create fricting and war. Its also used to clean gene pool of mudsharks. Its also part of a Hegel because they want to ban race mixing completely. Mongrels will be also perfect depopulation targets.

Luc X. Ifer's picture

You know why *They want fast and drastic depopulation along with huge standard drop for the rest*.

Because we are very close to having immortality realizable and functional AI. Guess what, the few 1% want it all only for themselves, they want to enjoy a nice and clean planet, a planet cleaned by the scum which destroys it by the second - and

I don't blame them - the 1%, for it.   

Now, you know why. Who in his mind would give immortality to the rest of 99%?! Do you realize what would happen if that would happen?!

... what to do with them? ... you pile them onto barges as fast as you can, and you tug them to the ME country of their choice (or the closest one in proximity to yours) ... then you anchor the barge just offshore and send their government a text telling them where to find them ... you might also include the politicians who sold you out. let them coexist with the immigrants on those barges ... there, problem solved ...

Asia in general comes out the best. They've taken the good from the West, the knowledge but refused the worst, multiculturalism.

Haus-Targaryen's picture

I think once the asians decide its time to start slaughtering one another, this statement will likely be incorrect. 

DFCtomm's picture

There is certainly a history of that, and the way China is behaving in the South China Sea seems to indicate that they've learned nothing about being good neighbors, but if they don't go to war with each other, then they win. They've taken the best and left the worst.

Asian countries like Thailand, China have very strict immigration controls.

Stunned the lemmings won't accept treason anymore.

This is Saturn square Neptune, it caused Brexit, it brought Bernie and Trump.

They have had enough of the lies and fraud from the government, the banks, the whole kit and caboodle.

Merkel hates Germany as much as Obama hates America.


It shows, too. Both have sought to destory their nation, especially the middle class.

RiverRoad's picture

The hate notwithstanding, both have sold out to the 1% elites/Soros lock, stock and barrel.  Look for their next lives in the Carlyle Group.

It's all about the moola they can reap when the job is over.

DownWithYogaPants's picture

We don't need rampant reproduction in the age of automation.  It would just be better for the bump to occur and Germany to flush the Mooooslems.

Just keep in mind: get enough snowflakes together in one place and they form a fucking glacier, which is pretty much unstoppable, and utterly destroys everything in its path.

Doom Porn Star's picture

Huge ovlumes of frozen water on land -aka glaciers- don't move very fast and usually only in a single direction.

Huge volumes of unfrozen water on land move very quickly and in many directions simultaneously.

Water even flows around, through, over, and under glaciers.

How can she think "we can do this"?

"Do" exactly what? Import a million Muslims, after Germany helps destory thier homelands, into a Christian Society and everyone will drink beer and be merry?

That is beyond nuts.

How many 1000's of years of history do we have that shows/PROVES that opposite religions DO NOT mix either FORCE one side to give up their religion or you have "religious conflict" that will NEVER end.

roxyNL's picture

at least religious europe had a fertility rate > 2

nihilistic materialistic europe has a fertility rate < 2

from a darwinian point of view religious europe is better than nihilistic materialistc europe.

Nature only reconizes darwinian laws

your opinion is worthless to nature

BarkingCat's picture

Germany population dropping is not a bad thing from nature's point of view. There is no reason why such a small piece of land would have 80 million humans.

Same goes for many other countries..

Tge problem is polution of their gene pool. That is what will bring an end to Germanic people.


roxyNL's picture

The house of habsburgs were at the top of europe for centuries, they had inimaginable wealth and their taste for arts was without any equal. Their desire to keep all their wealth within their family led them to be whipped out from the gene pool (due to inbreeding) 

Looks like modern europe is going the same way

NumberNone's picture

Fucking legacy of WW2. Promotion of the existing Germans to propagate is now considered racist and xenophobic. Rather than subsidize the families already in Germany and make their lives easier in order to support additional children much better to use same tax dollars to bring in immigrants that nobody wants and encourage them to not work and make as many babies as possible.

If we want to talk Darwin, Europe dying from the result of multiple generations of the best and brightest killing themselves off in wars. The bulk of the population left behind were the opportunists, cowards, and too weak to fight.
