    Amazing ! I wanted to post a thread here too. About this subject, because I saw it in the news report.

    About the NPD, the neo-nazi party.
    Now, they are in Sachsen and Brandenburg Parliaments.

    The posters of this party are red, with some black and white, and with some things who have the same shape than the flag of the Nazi Kriegsmarine.

    I believe it is because these ex-DDR Länder have big troubles, like a strong unemployement. For some people who are desesperated, they think it can be a solution.
    In Sachsnen, they want to close the borders with the Czec Rep.

    Both Germany and France are having these kind of results in their legislative elections, wouldn't say it bodes well for their leaders, but worse for their citizens. Somehow we'll be hearing, 'It's all GW's fault!'

    The Economist has been reporting snippets of this for some time. Great magazine, they tend to be a little ahead of most main stream media.

    Jean Marie Le Pen is a extrem-right party's leader, but not a Nazi...

    assholes, yes, nazi, no.

    it doesn'nt mean that the german people - and the french in 2002 - is nazi....only that some are desesparate : unemployement in Sachsen and Brandenburg : 18.5% ! ex-BDR (west germany) : 8%. It irritae the east germasn, the west is richer.
    but the west is sick of giving always money for east. 1200 billions, I believe since 1989.

    But they are not nazi, fascists or rascists.
    And like in France in 2002, big big manifestations in the streets to say their shame of these results, to say NO to nazis : Nazis raus".

    Perhaps you need to have your election process overseen by an international committee ?
