And by that, uh, we mean in any possible form. Days after the Virginia riots in Charlottesville, German Chancellor Angela Merkel took to international media to condemn the attacks and the murder that occurred in Virginia. What we’d assume was a statement made to sort of bolster her re-election campaign, Merkel, told international journalists.
“The scenes at the right-wing extremist march were absolutely repulsive – naked racism, antisemitism and hate in their most evil form were on display.
“Such images and chants are disgusting wherever they may be and they are diametrically opposed to the political goals of the Chancellor and the entire German government.”
