German President Joachim Gauck was booed, jeered, and attacked as he walked through the streets of Sebnitz, Saxony. Imagine if it were Merkel.
Official German State TV and State Radio reported are that “a handful of right wing extremists” have attacked the president and disturbed the otherwise peaceful and welcoming reception. This is simply not the case, as you can see in the video. Heiko Maas, the German Justice Minister, has threatened to prosecute the protesters, as “it cannot be allowed that such a tiny minority has influence on the political climate in Germany.”
