AfD leader compares ‘colourful’ multiculturalism to ‘compost heap’

    The leader of the Alternative für Deutschland said that Germany could become a “compost heap” of multiculturalim, in response to a government campaign calling diversity “colourful”.

    Frauke Petry questioned whether migrants improved European societies in a speech in Stuttgart on Monday, according to Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung (FAZ). She spoke in the Baden-Württemberg capital on German Unity Day.

    “What should we make of the campaign ‘Germany is colourful’? A compost heap is colourful, too,” Petry told the audience. She went on to predict a clash of civilizations of sorts.

    The AfD leader warned of a coming “Darwinistic” conflict between Europe’s residing “transfer payment recipients” and immigrants from the “lumpenproletariat Afro-Arabian world” and condemned the notion that Germany ought to be diverse and multicultural, suggesting instead that it should be ethnically homogenous.

    Her party has made big regional gains so far this year on an anti-immigration ticket and is expected to win federal parliamentary seats in 2017. It has gained double digit percentages in all five German state parliamentary elections, recording its biggest victory in Saxony-Anhalt at 24 percent in March.

    Rival parties in Germany clamoured to condemn comments reportedly made by Petry.

    The interior minister of Baden-Württemberg, and member of Chancellor Angela Merkel’s conservative CDU party, Thomas Strobl, called Petry’s comments “repulsive” and “despicable”.

    He blamed the AfD for the migrant crisis. “[The AfD] is not the savior but the traitor of the Western world… they live for crisis and have no other goal but to expand this in everyday life.

    “The strategy of these people is to scare people. Therefore we should not even get involved with them,” Strobl told FAZ.

    Andreas Stoch, from the leftist SPD, also condemned Petry’s statements as “deeply inhuman”: “Once more the AfD has shown their hateful face. This blunder reaffirms that the AfD is by no means a bourgeois, but rather deeply inhuman.”

    Petry’s office has neither confirmed or nor commented on her remarks yet.

    No stranger to controversy, Petry said last month that Merkel lacked forward vision because she was childless. In January, Petry suggested that border police threaten to shoot undocumented immigrants trying to enter the country illegally.
