Editor’s Note: It is important for the Reader to note that this article is NOT an endorsement of the former East Germany (DDR), nor East German Communism. In fact East Germany did NOT have a Communist Party. The official Party in East Germany was the SED (Socialist Unity Party), a unification of the Social Democrats & the Communist Party
The AfD is hardly a reincarnation of the National Socialist German Workers Party. It was founded by a group of disgruntled members of the CDU who opposed the Euro and wanted to preserve the Deutsche Mark and never gained any traction on that issue.
In fact, the AfD has a lot in common with the SED of East Germany and has been the benefactor of the SED AND the 40 years of East Germany DDR, which ironically preserved the last vestiges of “Old Germany”
Unlike the East German SED, the AfD is a Party that embraces Jews, Homosexuality, and everything decedent that the Western Allies did to West Germany, emphasis, everything decedent that the Western Allies did to West Germany. The AfD is stuck with German Federal Law on these issues, but it places homosexuals into its leadership.
