Merkel’s policy has resulted in ‘Germans being killed by foreigners’

The AfD MP for Magdeburg, Frank Pasemann, has rejected demands by Saxony-Anhalt's Prime Minister Reiner Haseloff (CDU), that the AfD must explain their so-called relationship to "right-wing extremism". It is rather the CDU politician that has some explaining to do, Pasemann says.

    “The fact that Germans are being killed by foreigners every week, even in central Germany, is a direct consequence of the uncontrolled mass immigration from Africa and the Middle East supported by Mr. Haseloff, which naturally and foreseeably has led to violent conflicts,” Pasemann explained.

    “To this end, Mr. Haseloff would have to comment, because it was his policy and that of the CDU, which destroyed the social peace in Germany and the whole of Europe,” the AfD politician noted. The “true extremism that endangers our country existentially” is the “policy of the formerly conservative and Christian CDU”.

    Haseloff had previously asked the AfD-Bundesspitze to explain their relationship to “right-wing extremists”. On Tuesday, the CDU politician told Deutschlandfunk. “It is clear, there are flowing structures there. The federal leadership has to justify in any case why it has allowed such a thing, and therefore also has to bear the consequences, if the state intervenes here.”

    Haselhoff claims that in Chemnitz and Köthen AfD politicians and right-wing radicals participated together.

    The CDU politician is trying to distract from his responsibility with these statements, replied Pasemann. “And he harasses the people who protest against being killed in their hometowns by strangers, and for whose livelihood they may still pay.” Haseloff has yet to explain how he intended to reverse this development, Pasemann said.

    The two AfD chiefs Alexander Gauland and Jörg Meuthen rejected the demand by Haseloff. “Mr. Haseloff’s notions are based on a fundamental misunderstanding. The Alternative for Germany need not justify its actions, because we have no unresolved relationship with right-wing extremism. We have strictly rejected them. We have always done that and like to repeat it again for Mr. Haseloff,” said Gauland and Meuthen.

    The AfD is a fully legal, constitutional state party. Regarding the demonstrations, they said: “We expressly do not wish to see any demonstrators who reject the free-democratic basic order and excel with extremist and constitutional ideology at our party’s events.” The two leaders suggested that such people may be in fact working for other parties and not the AfD.

    Meanwhile, AfD parliamentary leader Alice Weidel announced several measures on Tuesday to prevent possible surveillance on sections of the AfD and its youth organisation. It concerns both “legal, organisational” counterstrategies, as well as measures on the “public, communicative” level.

    In addition to the preparation of a complaint against the surveillance by the German domestic secret service, the employment of internal “special investigators” was also conceivable, said Weidel. They should help the party leadership to “create their own picture” about the events in individual state associations.

    Weidel will propose at a special meeting of the party executive committee on Wednesday evening on the establishment of a commission. The body is to be headed by the lawyer and member of parliament Roland Hartwig.

    The background is the observation of two national associations, that of the AfD youth organisation Junge Alternative as well as the monitoring of the AfD state association in Thuringia.
