‘Merkel is an Antifa mouthpiece’

Dr Gottfried Curio, a member of the Bundestag for AfD (Alternative für Deutschland), held a press conference in which he named all the authoritative agencies who have definitively stated that the incident in Chemnitz was not a “manhunt” as the German Chancellor claimed.

    Saxony’s General Prosecutor’s office, Saxony’s Police department, the Federal Police, the Federal Office for the Protection of the Constitution, Saxony’s Interior Minister, Saxony’s Minister President, Saxon political leaders, and various politicians – even some from Angela Merkel’s own party – agreed that what happened in Chemnitz can in no way be construed as a “manhunt”.

    Moreover, as Curio explains, the “manhunt” accusation was leveled directly by the Chancellor’s office, and borrowed directly from Antifa’s narrative. Worse still, Merkel did not consult with the German security services to authenticate it.

    The treason of the German leader at the national level has been made abundantly clear when she rhetorically spearheaded the term “manhunt”, while the Constitutional Protection Agency determined that the title, chosen by Antifa, “Manhunt in Chemnitz” was not justifiable.

    “When someone is chased away a few steps from another person, it cannot be qualified as a manhunt or a pogrom or as a mob chase,” says Curio.

    “This did not happen there. What happened is that Antifa, a left extremist group, in particular through Antifa Tick Bite — known for similar stunts — has in this case deliberately ascribed a misleading title.”

    The security services clearly stated in their evaluation based on the overall information that the visuals were not authentic and that the Antifa video does not show a manhunt.

    “This case has now acquired a new dimension,” Curio believes because it is the responsibility of the security services to pursue disinformation.

    Their job is “to prevent emotionally charging society via false descriptions, and to counteract it,”says Curio.

    “So what is the true scandal here? Upon request, it was confirmed that the Chancellor’s Press Secretary Mr. Seibert neither asked nor consulted with the Federal Ministry of the Interior nor the Constitutional Protection Agency for the interpretation he presented, which deviates from that of every federal security agency.

    “We also heard that the Antifa video was directly transferred and presented on the national news at 8pm, an unprecedented event.

    “So what we have here is not only the Chancellery but the leading media outlets swiftly offering themselves as the mouthpiece for Antifa.”

    Curio said it Merkel’s administration acted in an “absolutely outrageous” way by ignoring this long-standing principle to first inform oneself.

    “We have a fantasy narrative floating freely for a week now which was undeterred by the weight of actual facts spread far and wide,” Curio added.

    “What happened was an incitement against the demonstrators of Saxony by the media.

    “The scandal is that government and media spread misinterpretations contrary to the assessments of security agencies. This spreading of misrepresentations and disparity is directly linked to the government and the media, and certainly not the security agencies, which have been completely consistent in every assessment, as has the political leadership of Saxony,” Curio concluded.
