Am 25.05.15 marsch. Pegida mit bis zu 2.8000 Menschen durch #Dresden. An d. Teilnehmerz. kommen sie längst nicht mehr heran (auch wenn sie es natürl. propagieren). Heute marsch. Pegida wieder (wohl mit weniger als der Hälfte an Pers.). Infos zum Gegenprotest: @hopedresden
Worum es Pegida (damals noch mit #Festerling) bereits 2015 ging, zeigt dieser Post von ihr (Subtext mitlesen):

Am 18.05.2015 stand übrigens Curd "Ben Nemsi" Schumacher auf der Pegida-Bühne. Der war eine Zeit lang richtig dick mit "WfD"-Hönicke und man unternahm auch viel zusammen:

I don't understand why the replacement of #DieLinke by #AfD as the new "Ostpartei" is not one of the major stories of #BTW17 🤔 #Thread
1. Sure, many media have noted that #AfD won almost twice as many votes in East than West and some great articles were written about "revenge of East"…
2. But main story is Merkel lost to AfD because of her "soft" position on refugees. While this is true, there are two important caveats to this story.

As my @guardian piece is only on #AfD here some general thoughts on #BTW17 results in a #Thread
1. There is no doubt that this is Germany's #SchwarzeSonntag (Black Sunday). It was long in coming but it came much harder than expected.
2. #AfD breaking 10 percent is highly significant, as German small parties rarely get double digits!

A few thoughts on last night's #TVDuell between #Merkel and @MartinSchulz: #Thread

Most Germans found #TVDuell boring and criticized lack of any controversy or contest of ideas between the two candidates.
#TVDuell seriously felt like the beginning of coalition talks between @CDU and @spdde. Germans hate that!
