On Saturday, an AfD politician was beaten up by the Antifa in Schorndorf near Stuttgart. Front man Jörg Meuthen spoke up later.
The state election is due to take place in Baden-Württemberg on March 14th, so the AfD set up an information stand on the market square in Schorndorf near Stuttgart on Saturday.
“Around 10 o’clock a group of around 15-20 people came from the direction of Kirchgasse to the AfD stand and is said to have attacked the AfD stand and the party members there,” write the public prosecutor and the police about the attack.
The group was “due to the flags and banners that were carried with them to be assigned to the Antifa scene”.
Landtag candidate Schwarz was knocked to the ground and beaten by the attackers.
The information stand was completely destroyed in the attack.
The attackers fled. Five suspects (18 to 25) were later arrested.
AfD Rems-Murr wrote after the attack on Facebook that, in addition to Schwarz, Jürgen Braun (59), a member of the Bundestag, and an almost 80-year-old helper “were maltreated with poles and thrown to the ground”. Both were probably unharmed.
Party frontman Jörg Meuthen took the incident as an occasion for an angry speech on his Facebook page.
“This is exactly what happens when left-wing extremism is repeatedly belittled or even expressed solidarity with it, as SPD chairwoman Saskia Esken tweeted not long ago,” he writes.
Is meant a tweet by the 59-year-old from June last year. “58 and Antifa,” she wrote at the time.
The y are not anti-fascists, they are seriously criminal anti-fascists!”
The terrorists and anti-democrats are among us. Many of them call themselves ‘anti-fascists’ and ‘activists’, and there are plenty of people who naively believe them because of media obfuscation.”
The Office for the Protection of the Constitution is also getting a broadside: “If he finally did his legally imposed duty here, a considerable part of the SPD, the Greens and the Left would have long been under observation.”
By the way: After the attack on the election booth, an alleged letter of confession was posted on the Indymedia portal used by left-wing radicals.
For the anonymous authors, the AfD is “a danger for everyone who does not fit into their racist worldview or who live in precarious circumstances”.
The “visit” to the stand in Schorndorf is justified as follows: “One year after the attack in Hanau it was made clear to those who are most aggressively agitating against everything ‘un-German’ and thus provide the ideological ammunition for right-wing terrorists that being racist still means problems. “
