Fake reports of ‘assault’ surface after AfD rally near Stuttgart

More than 200 citizens demonstrated on Saturday in Kornwestheim near Stuttgart in Germany against the construction of a major mosque in their city. The rally was organized by the AfD district association Ludwigsburg.

    Speakers were the AfD members of the Bundestag Martin Hess, Prof. dr. Lothar Maier and the non-party ex-Green and renowned Islam critic Michael Höhne-Pattberg from Krefeld, German online outlet PI-news reported

    Before the event began, the entrance to the grounds in front of the Kornwestheim town hall was blocked by Antifa supporters who had traveled in a group of about 120 people.

    The strong police presence deployed quickly and cleared out the protesters, making sure that people could enter the hall freely.

    The first to speak was Martin Hess, who is also chief police officer. He criticised the two major churches in dealing with Islam. He pointed out that massive problems exist in the integration of people with a Muslim background. He accused the DITIB mosque association of being fundamentalist and an appendage of Turkish president Erdogan.

    The next speaker was the Stuttgart AfD member of the Bundestag, Prof. dr. Lothar Maier. In his speech he defined the understanding of religious freedom with regard to Basic German Law. He lamented the current influence of Islam on family law, the protection of women’s rights and human rights in general. Prof. Maier spoke against the imperial style of the planned Grand Mosque and the associated change in the street scene in becoming Oriental and no longer German.

    The third and last speaker was the long-time Islam critic Michael Höhne-Pattberg. In his almost one-hour lecture he quoted from books by leftists who have criticised Islam. He specifically addressed various radical currents of Islam with a Turkish character, including the “Gray Wolves”.

    Historical references and the crimes of Turkish politics towards minorities, such as the Armenians and many others, were also discussed. He revealed the influence of Turkish politics in associations such as the DITIB. He criticised the fear of politics in dealing with these Turkish Islamic forces.

    In the third part of his speech he showed possible solutions in dealing with the DITIB. He mentioned the requests to cancel public funding for these associations.

    In the run-up to the rally, some media representatives tried to harrass the participants. A Turkish-born ZDF “journalist” interviewed participants and organisers in a provocative manner. When she did not get the answers she expected, she became rude. She was supervised by a kind of mentor, who had whispered her instructions into her ear: “Do not respond to questions, do not answer, just ask questions!”.

    In the course of his speech, Michael Höhne-Pattberg also referred to the behavior of the “journalist” of Turkish origin, who had interviewed him personally before the speeches began.

    She provoked attendees during the speeches by filming with her mobile phone right in front of their faces. Later, she claimed someone had hit her neck, but two videos by attendees documented her provocative approach, and none of her claims of assault.

    After an intervention of this “press representative” Martin Hess had to interrupt his speech and inform the public at the behest of the police about the alleged incident.

    The Stuttgarter Zeitung then relished in the police announcement of the alleged “assault”. In their headline for the coverage of the rally, the paper stated: “Turkish journalist at AfD demo attacked”.

    This person had actually only drawn attention to herself when she explained to a board member of AfD-Ludwigsburg that Islam would take over Germany.
