A brief tour of the present German political hysteria

One day, this massive paroxysm of hatred and fury “against the right” must subside, because it is just impossible for a society to maintain this level of emotional excitement forever. For the moment, though, it is a thing to behold

Just a few days ago, Peter Fischer, the honorary president of the football club Eintracht Frankfurt, gave a completely unhinged interview to RTL in which he screeched that “one in four or one in five people on the street is a Nazi.” “Break down their doors and gates,” he said of AfD voters, “slap them in the face! Puke in their faces! I don’t give a shit!” The whole time he was waving his hands like some totally crazy person on cocaine. It is like the great vaccinator hysteria from fall 2021 all over again
