Germany’s version of Britain’s UKIP party is the new AfD Alternative_for_Germany party. The AfD party is the result of Germany’s established parties having stopped listening to its citizens. It takes a position against the euro-currency, the hysterical transition to renewable energies, and has cast considerable doubt over climate science itself.
Now it is being violently assaulted at campaign rallies by green, leftist thugs. Hat-tip: Bernd Felsche at FB.
In the latest incident, the AfD held a campaign rally yesterday in the northern port city of Bremen in order to express ideas and to debate the issues of our time. However, in today’s environmentally radical Germany, expressing alternative ideas and dissent are not welcome. And as yesterday’s event shows, you’re putting your health and life at risk if you do so. Here’s a press release from the Bremen Police Department.
Location: Bremen, 24 August 2013, 15.30. Today, this afternoon, a campaign event by the party ‘Alternative für Deutschland’ took place at the Bremer Bürgerpark. This event was stormed hit-and-run-style by attackers. Multiple persons were injured. At 3 p.m. the campaign event started on an open air stage. During a speech by the chairperson of the ‘Alternative für Deutschland”, the event was suddenly stormed by 20 – 25 partially masked persons. Eight persons succeeded to get onto the stage. The attackers used pepper spray in the stage area. This led to 16 people being injured. When the police intervened the attackers fled the park. During the pursuit one helper of the ‘Alternative für Deutschland’ was attacked with a knife. He was lightly injured to the hand as he defended himself. All persons who were injured by the pepper spray suffered irritated eyes and respiration. Among the injured were two children aged 7 and 11 and one police officer. All the injured were treated on site by an ambulance. The injured police officer continued his duty. Three persons (22, 25 and 27 years old) were arrested. They probably can be assigned to the left-wing spectrum. The police investigation is ongoing. The police are investigating for massive disruption of the peace. The event by the ‘Alternative für Deutschland’ resumed and ended as planned at 6:30 p.m. Further witnesses are being asked to report to the criminal authorities at (0421) 362-3888.”
Here’s a video of the AfD incident from one angle. Green activists keep writing that the AfD is a party of “racists, right-wing populists and Nazis.” All the middle-aged, honest hardworking folks you see in attendance are viewed by the greens and like-thinkers as “threats“.
Green violence on-stage for the whole world to see. Seven and 11-year old children injured in the planned attack.
So who just were these “left-wing” thug attackers? All the evidence points to one colour: Greens.
Intolerant and aggressive announcements by a number green sites against the AfD party have been mounting in the internet lately. For example, two weeks ago, the website “Gruene Jugend Goettingen” (Green Youths Göttingen) agitated its base by posting: “GRÜNE JUGEND Göttingen calling for protests against the AfD”. One of its members even called on “fighting against the right-wing populists and Nazis as a reason to protest the campaign events of the Alternative for Germany“. This is a new level of intolerance. If one disagrees with the Green movement, then you get defamed as right-wing extremists and Nazis.
Even Germany’s Green Party, which is polling at a formidable 15% in German surveys, is calling on Greens: “Don’t allow the campaign of the AfD any room!“.
Bremen was hardly the first time the AfD has been the target of physical violence by such radicals. The Green Party page continuously portrays the AfD as a “right-wing, extremist, democracy-hostile party” in a propagandist attempt to demonize the AfD, just as Al Gore does so by comparing climate skeptics and Tea Party activists to homophobes, Holocaust deniers, and alcoholics.
Green attacks nationwide
Two weeks ago at a campaign event in Gottingen, the AfD was also attacked by intolerant, violent radicals who “physically assaulted campaign helpers“. The Hannover Zeitung here reports:
Time and again all over Germany there’s the destruction of Alternative für Deutschland campaign posters and attacks on campaign helpers. For example in Lübeck one quarter of all posters that had been put up were destroyed. […] In Berlin stones were thrown at a truck loaded with AfD posters. Similar attacks also occurred in Giessen and Nuremberg. …”
Green leader Marie Kollenrott denies that the Greens have anything to do with the violence, and blames fringe radicals: “The GREENS reject violence as a means for political debate.” Unfortunately her base doesn’t appear to be listening, and they are becoming increasingly violent and dangerous to Germany’s open society. The constant hate-filled stream of propaganda the German greens put out against the AfD and dissenters incites weak-minded activists to commit acts of violence. It’s sad that Green leaders are too spiteful to see this.
AfD deputy spokeswoman Frauke Petry says: “The events in Gottingen remind us of the worst time of the Weimar Republic.” Deputy AfD spokesman Konrad Adam adds: “These kinds of incidents should be a concern to everyone. These attacks are on democracy itself.”
