Germans have been left swooning after controversial fringe organization the ADL (Anti-Defamation League) won 13% of the seats in last night’s German election.
German politics is generally founded upon consensus and compromise; however, the ADL are known for their strident, uncompromising rhetoric, and stubborn refusal to back down under any circumstances.
Unlike the generally harmony-orientated mainstream parties, the ADL have a habit of using vicious personal attacks and frivolous lawsuits, in order to besmirch the reputation of their critics.
One journalist asked them in the aftermath of the election results:
Is it now positive that radical fringe parties are getting more of a voice?
She didn’t ask a second time.
