I ❤️❤️❤️ 🇩🇪🇩🇪🇩🇪

Via Mike’s blog:

‘You don’t seem to be mad at the people here. Shouldn’t you, as a leftist, despise AfD supporters?’ 
-You should never despise anyone. Many of them are protest voters. I can understand that. A number of things have taken a turn for the worse in recent years. At my polling station, the AfD received just three votes less than The Left during the last election. But regardless of how sad the reality is, I’m proud that the elections work in our country and aren’t influenced from the outside. And that everyone can express their opinion openly.

I love Germany for this. We need more of this kind of attitude over here. Sadly, a lot more people here are ready to give the benefit of the doubt to some stinking rich guy in a mansion than to a fellow worker down the street.
