A riot by Nazis and "soccer hooligans" blamed on the opposition to her immigration policies.

What's the best way to blunt the effectiveness of the political opposition? In the case of German chancellor Angela Merkel, it's smearing ordinary people for protesting the murder of an innocent German by two Afghan refugees.
It happened in the city of Chemnitz as two Afghan refugees murdered a German citizen in a knife attack two weeks ago. The resulting demonstration against the chancellor's immigration policies brought thousands into the street – including some far-right Nazi sympathizers.
Merkel saw an opportunity to smear the entire Alliance for Germany political party when she condemned the entire demonstration.
"There is no excuse or reason for hunting people down, using violence and Nazi slogans, showing hostility to people who look different, who have a Jewish restaurant, for attacks on police officers," Merkel told the Bundestag.
"We will not allow whole groups in our society to be quietly excluded," she said, adding that Jews, Muslims, Christians and atheists all belong in German society, and stressing that human dignity was paramount.
Before Merkel took the podium, the head of the AfD group in the Bundestag said Germany's "domestic peace" was at risk.
"As disgusting as Hitler salutes are, I would like to remind you that the really serious event in Chemnitz was the bloody deed (committed) by two asylum seekers," said Alexander Gauland.
