  1. German Activist Quits Over Hitler ‘Stache

    Talk about a lousy shave. The leader of Germany’s right-wing, anti-Muslim PEGIDA movement resigned yesterday after a Facebook selfie surfaced of him posing as Hitler with the unmistakable mustache and hairdo. Lutz Bachmann apologized and said he would no longer lead the movement, which has drawn as many as 25,000 people to weekly protests against immigrants. Many are concerned by the group’s xenophobic tones, so while its “fuhrer” may be gone, all eyes will be on the group’s new look.
