Five hundred people were arrested in Germany after violent clashes broke out, authorities said.So you're telling me that 500 people are arrested out of 1000 that were protesting? I'm calling bullshit. That number arrested indicates a protest of more than 5k people at least...probably closer to 10k.
More than 1,000 people were protesting Saturday in Stuttgart, where Alternative for Germany, a far-right political party, is holding a two-day conference over the weekend.
Demonstrators tried to block party members from entering the building where their conference was taking place.
Protesters then clashed with police, throwing flares and setting tires on fire, according to Richard Leuze, the spokesman for Reutlingen police.
About 2,000 party members were trying to attend the conference.
Another smaller, peaceful demonstration in the southern German city drew about 800 people.
The sunny side (if there can be one)?
This is right on schedule and my prediction of Europe burning this summer is looking spot on. Germany won't be where the fun is though. Watch France and believe it or not the UK. They will probably remain in the EU and that will inflame passions that will make this look like a spring breeze.
Pass the popcorn this is gonna be good!
