I’m not sure what constitutes far right anymore. I used to think it meant nazis and fascists but now it seems it’s anyone who values their own way of life and uses discretion at the border.

Germany appears to no longer be united behind "gimme-more-immigrants" Merkel. Another globalist losing power.

AfD is strongest in the east, so it's not too surprising. It certainly shows how many people with at least partial nationalist ideology stood silent. It doesn't quite give away the situation in the whole of Germany, though. The only people I know, who vote for AfD are either nationalists or not so intelligent people and they are still a minority that will likely not get a chance to operate within German politics anytime soon.
