Heim became known through the Sat.1 series “Toto and Harry”, in which real police work received coverage.
“People are afraid to voice their opinion because they are placed directly in the rightwing corner,” Heim told the regional daily Rheinische Post on Thursday. And they were afraid, “because many people came in who did not register, or who submitted multiple applications with multiple personal details”.
At a trucker meeting in Thuringia, the policeman had given a speech as ambassador of the association Kinderhospiz Mitteldeutschland. “We build synagogues, we build minarets and so on and so forth, but those who can not behave here, has no right of residence, I say that honestly,” Heim noted. A video with excerpts of the speech is currently on Facebook with about 2 000 shares of approval.
Anyone who has committed a crime as a German abroad would be deported, he argued. “But we are actually too soft, that’s unfortunately so. Such cases will not be treated the same here and that’s what most people notice,” Heim added. “Some people can not come from abroad and do everything they want here and collect money.”
When asked if he wanted to go into politics, the official replied, “If I go into politics, then it’ll go awry.” He has no time for that, he says. But as a police officer, he has had ” to deal with left-leaning bias for 30 years”, and he now feels that he has since been lied to and betrayed.
He told the Rheinische Post that he did want to be misunderstood: “I’m in no political party, not politically active and I’m certainly not in the AfD.” Also, he has nothing against foreigners and he has friends and colleagues with foreign roots.
However, the federal government’s policy must “follow a clear line and not just beat about the bush”. He justified the term “left bias” by saying that left-wing extremism was as bad as right-wing extremism. “I do not know which group is bigger, but the left spectrum is obviously viewed as more socially acceptable.”
