On Tuesday German Chancellor Angela Merkel was nailed with a tomato as protesters are irate over her open door refugee policy. The actions (or lack thereof) that Merkel is taking when it comes to refugees flooding Germany is not acceptable for many of the people in Germany. They’ve had enough and are holding her accountable for the direction the country is headed.
This happened at a rally in Heidelberg. These people are livid and want no part of a re-election of Angela Merkel.
Watch the video.

Per Daily Mail:
The 63-year-old Chancellor came under literal and actual fire from hundreds of protesters voicing their upset over her ‘open doors’ policy during the 2015 migrant crisis.Police said two tomatoes were thrown during different parts of the Chancellor’s speech with one striking her left hip.
One of her aides was also hit by the flying fruit as the words ‘liar’ and ‘hypocrite’ rang in her ears.The noisy demonstration was fresh evidence that not all votes are guaranteed at the general election on September 24 when she seeks a fourth term in power.
Some 3,000 people were at the rally and those who demonstrated against her were angry at her refugee policies which have seen over a million unvetted immigrants enter the country in the last two years.‘If we made a mistake, then it wasn’t in taking in people, ‘ Mrs. Merkel said in defence of her decision to open the doors to migrants in 2015.
Despite these reactions, it appears Merkel will comfortably win the re-election.
