The AfD has been willing to stand up to Germany’s stifling culture of political correctness
People want to upbraid them for throwing the odd rhetorical bomb, but the reality is that it isn’t just about getting attention. (Though any media savvy party knows they need press coverage.)
If the establishment media had their way, they would tie everyone in such a straitjacket of political correctness that no one would be able to talk critically about multiculturalism (disaster), open borders (a really bad idea), or any other inherently Marxist ideas (tried those, did not go well) getting pushed by an extremely biased, extremely left-wing establishment media and political class.
Things are going really badly in Germany and the AfD seems like it is the only mainstream party willing to talk about it. And it is fantastic that they are. That someone is.
You can’t fix problems by ignoring them. At this point it is no secret that the German Chancellor Merkel has a huge share of the blame for the migrant crises. Even the leading US presidential candidate Trump has said on the campaign trail that all of Europe is turning into “a total disaster” because of unwise immigration policies, and has even gone so far as to say “You know, what Merkel has done is incredible, it’s actually mind boggling. Everyone thought she was a really great leader and now she’s turned out to be this catastrophic leader.”
If it weren’t for the AfD, no one in the German establishment would be talking about this, and Germans would be reduced to hearing their problems discussed only in the US media.
