German Pegida Islamophobic fuehrer Bachmann, Hitler copycat


The image of Lutz Bachmann styled as Adolf Hitler was published by the Dresden Morgenpost after a reader spotted it on Facebook

Apparently, for German Pegida Islamophobic leader Lutz Bachmann, his present long criminal record is not long enough yet. He wants to emulate the biggest criminal of all time, Adolf Hitler.
