Hyperpartisan Sites And Facebook Pages Are Publishing False Stories And Conspiracy Theories About Angela Merkel

Something to big and life altering to every citizen should be put before the people, she had NO BUSINESS doing what she did and is responsible for all the deaths and rapes that have come from it!
