1. The AfD loves pointing to its most extreme members and saying, "oh, he doesn't speak for us."

Sort of like Mitch McConnell pulling his head inside his turtle shell every time Trump says something he'd rather not identify with. The fact is that, like the most extreme members of the Republican Party like Steve King, the extremists DO speak for the masses. The masses just find it convenient to remain silent while coming out with the "oh, well, that's not me" line. The fact that these extremists are being not-so-secretly encouraged by Trump's neo-Nazi ambassador to Germany has, of course, only emboldened them. Were they under the impression that the US was monitoring them and held them in a negative light, they would act far less openly.
