This might sound like the beginning of a joke, but in all seriousness: German nationalists trying to go to a nationalist rally in Freiburg accidentally got onto the wrong train, en mass, and missed their own protest.


Seriously: at least 50¬†NPD demonstrators (NPD is the German nationalist basically neo-nazi party) failed to get onto the right train from Heilbronn and, instead of arrive in Freiburg, ended up 200 kilometers away in Mannheim. This shouldn’t be too surprising, since we already know there is a connection between low intelligence and racism.

This led to the comedic situation on the police and counter-demonstrators being the only people present and ready for what was supposed to be a demonstration of nationalist pride and protest against a court decision. Whether they will try again, and this time manage to get on the right train, is a question we cannot yet answer.
