Greens are being beaten by the Pirate Party in Germany. They are Germany’s third strongest political force, according to a survey recently published.

Aleks Lessmann, a spokesperson, said Monday that every party had a certain percentage of idiots, but it was important that such opinions were not shared by the majority.

?In contrast to the established parties we offer every basic member an equal forum.? Due to this openness, such discriminatory opinions ?are more recognizable,? he said.
