Alexander Gauland, chairman of the AfD parliamentary group in the Brandenburg parliament, asked Isabelle Vandré from the Left Party to return her parliamentary mandate after she called for a genocide against Germans, or Volkstod.
Previously, the 26-year-old had posed in a demonstration in Frankfurt on the Oder beside a banner with the inscription “We love Volkstod” during a demonstration by Die Linke. Participants also included members of the extremist “Antifascist Action”.
“I find Vandré’s demands unbearable, which together with her party and the ‘Antifa’, she has proposed here. How can a “popular representative” chosen by the people and paid by the people launch the action “WE LOVE VOLKSTOD” demanding the genocide of their own people?” Gauland asked on Facebook. He accused Vandré’s party of advancing Germany’s “conversion” to Islam.
Isabelle Vandré entered the state parliament in 2014. She is the speaker for the Left’s youth organisation “Solid” and the youngest among their 88 deputies.
Illegal migration from across the Mediterranean has not abated, and conditions similar to the summer of 2015 could be repeated, Gauland had warned earlier.
Gauland told German magazine Zuerst, that the “refugee crisis” has not been solved. “If more and more people arrive in Italy and the country does not cope with it, a new summer 2015 may arrive. He said the issue will continue to occupy Germany for a long time.
Gauland suggested that the AfD should push for change to the current “refugee” and immigration policies and distribute German development aid more effectively for the reduction of causes to emigrate.
