Merkel blamed Russians interfering in her election, now she’s blaming far right Americans

Despite Germany’s unfounded fears that Moscow could meddle in its upcoming election, analysts say they “haven’t seen any trace of the Russians.” Instead, they say there is evidence that America’s far-right is trying to sway voters. “So far we have not been able to track down any specific Russian activity,” Simon Hegelich, a professor of political science data at the Technical University of Munich who has advised the German government about the threat of hacking and false information, told USA Today.

According to Hegelich, America’s so-called ‘A**right’ movement, a term which defines far-right ideology which includes racism and white nationalism, appears to be aiming to influence the German election. “A lot of the stuff we are seeing in Germany can be linked to, or is at least inspired by, the ‘A**-right’ movement in the US,” Hegelich said

Sounds like she’s worried about losing and looking for someone to blame.
