The constituency office of Thuringia’s AfD MP Stephan Brandner has received a “visit” from a pro-migration “protester” who dropped his pants and tried to urinate against the window of the office. The whole procedure was recorded by Brandner’s surveillance camera right in front of his office. The “protester” wearing a red cap even waved for the camera.
Stephan Brandner is now using the pee incident for a counter campaign. The AfD MP published a screenshot of the camera recording while pixilating the face of the “activist”. In a public Facebook post Brandner gave the “protester” an ultimatum: If he does not contact the AfD politician within the next few days, Brandner will publish the camera stills without anonymisation – to expose the “totally hammered Antifa guy with his mini-tool”. Brandner’s reaction went viral on German social networks. He frequently updates the case – including screenshots of threats he receives – on his Facebook profile.
Nevertheless, this is a serious issue in Germany: AfD’s offices are regulary attacked by pro-immigration activists. AfD deputy state chairman Armin-Paul Hampel has revealed that over the last year the party has had to report over 800 cases of attacks ranging from physical assaults and vandalism to party members’ cars being the target of arson, the German newspaper Die Welt reports.
