One thing you can count on with Nazis is they’ll always rise to occasion to keep it classy.

Fucking scum of the earth, pieces of shit.

The NPD is despicable, but don’t be fooled into believing they are any kind of legitimate political force in Germany. Yes, they have a handful of representatives in state legislatures in the former East Germany…but they get virtually no votes outside of this region. I don’t think there is a country in Europe where the largest far right party has LESS support nationally than Germany at this point.

“There was no Holocaust, but there will be!” is basically what it is.

The classic way to deal with modern day Nazis.

re: #3 Sergey Romanov

The other variant being “There was no Holocaust, but Hitler should have finished the job.” Each variant being despicable in its own right, but a reminder that we have much to do as citizens of this planet to preserve the concept of “Never again”

I’m not so quick to blow off the significance of the NPD. Maybe not today, maybe not tomorrow, but how long?

Right-Wing Extremists Find Ballot-Box Success in Saxony (Sept 2008)
The neo-Nazi party NPD now has representatives in every county council in the eastern German state of Saxony. In one town, the party even managed to win over a quarter of the vote.

They’ve sure been keeping the German government busy at any rate, blocking protests, marches, and attempts to ban them. Some highlights:

In 2001, the federal government, the Bundestag, and the Bundesrat jointly attempted to ban the NPD in a trial before the Federal Constitutional Court, the Bundesverfassungsgericht, the highest court in Germany with the exclusive power to ban parties if they are found to be “anti-constitutional”. However, the case was thrown out in 2003 after it was discovered that a number of the NPD’s inner circle were in fact undercover agents or informants of the German secret services, like the federal Bundesamt für Verfassungsschutz.

On 21 January 2005, during a silence in the Saxon state assembly in Dresden to mark the 60th anniversary of the liberation of the Nazi Auschwitz extermination camp, twelve members of the NPD walked out in protest.

In March 2006, musician Konstantin Wecker tried to set up an in-school anti-fascist concert in Halberstadt, Saxony-Anhalt two weeks before the state elections. The NPD argued that because of politics, the date and the in-school venue, the concert “was an unacceptable form of political campaigning.”[36] In protest, the NPD vowed to buy the tickets and turn up en masse at Wecker’s show, which led local authorities to cancel the event.

The NPD was going to sponsor a march through Leipzig on 21 June 2006, as the 2006 World Cup was going on. The party wanted to show its support for the Iranian national football team, which was playing in Leipzig, and Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. However, the NPD decided against the demonstration; only a counter-demonstration took place that day, in support of Israel.

During Operation Cast Lead in 2009, the NPD planned a “holocaust vigil” for Gaza in support of the Palestinians. Charlotte Knobloch, the head of the Central Council of Jews in Germany, said “joint hatred of everything Jewish is unifying neo-Nazis and Islamists.” Knobloch, who broadly associated Palestinians with Nazis, claimed German-Palestinian protestors “unashamedly admitted” that they would vote for the NPD during the next election.[41]

On 23 September 2009, four days before the federal elections, German police raided the Berlin headquarters of the NPD to investigate claims that letters sent from the NPD to politicians from immigrant backgrounds incited racial hatred. The NPD leader in Berlin defended the letters saying that “As part of a democracy we’re entitled to say if something doesn’t suit us in this country”.[43][44][45][46][47][48]
