    “The mendacity and falseness of today’s political correctness we did not expect in November 1989,” he said at a ceremony on the 29th Anniversary of German reunification in the Bavarian state parliament.

    In addition to the speeches by Petr Bystron, foreign policy spokesman for the AfD faction in the Bundestag and Katrin Ebner-Steiner, leader of the AfD parliamentary group in the Bavarian state parliament, the former Czech president emphasized the importance of patriotism for a future Europe.

    Klaus questioned in particular the benefits of the “EU” for the individual member states and complained about a “radical climate alarmism” and “Gretaismus”.

    These propaganda distractions were harmful to the people of Europe as well as other phenomena such as multiculturalism, genderism, Europeanism and globalism “and other modernisms” are “a serious threat to Western society”, Klaus noted.

    The most famous Czech politician and economist devoted his whole life to the sovereignty of his homeland. Vaclav Klaus analyzed the recent attacks on freedom and democracy: “German reunification is without a doubt a reason to celebrate,” said Klaus, but he added: “The development of the EU in the Czech Republic is so controversial and the split is so deep, that I am afraid that many Czech citizens will not celebrate the Velvet Revolution since the fall of the Wall were unfortunately not a final victory over communism.”

    Eastern Europeans, who believed European and American societies were better, were wrong, he said. “We were wrong!” The information from the textbooks did not match the reality of Western societies. There have been tendencies that “we have not understood enough,” said former President Klaus.

    “These developments were the neo-Marxist tendencies of the Frankfurt School, the consequences of the barricades of 1968, the growing centralist ambitions of the European integration process, the birth of aggressive feminism, the depth of the Green Revolution that began with Club of Rome and limits to growth,” Klaus said, listing some of the sacred cows of the political left.

    “I think – and I am not alone – that we have lost more than we have won,” said Klaus, disappointed.

    Katrin Ebner-Steiner, leader of the AfD parliamentary group in the Bavarian state parliament, paid tribute to the importance of the elder Statesman, a sovereignist. She concluded: “The future belongs to the patriots”.

    Petr Bystron, the foreign policy spokesman of the AfD faction in the Bundestag, said freedom, democracy, sovereignty and identity were increasingly threatened. On the commemoration day of German unification “it would also be appropriate to work within the AfD for unity and cohesion,” said the native Czech to great applause in the parliament.

    “In society, the mood is almost the same as the end of the 80s in the communist countries. People here and today are afraid to say their opinion freely.”

    Government-critical statements are met with harassment and even dismissals, he said. “Our country needs again people with backbone, who stand up against this injustice. Anyone can start by expressing their opinion in everyday life. And for us, the AfD, this means that these people rely on our support. We, the AfD, must be the shield for these people “.

    With Petr Bystron as state chairman, the AfD scored 12,4 percent in Bavaria, the best election result in all western Federal States!
