    Due to the possible political motive, the state security services will be part of the investigation into the latest arson attack. The car, according to a Junge Freiheit report, was a twelve-year-old Audi.

    The AfD believes that the Berlin administration is jointly responsible for the repeated attacks on AFD members and officials.

    “Now the old parties are reaping the fruits of their incitement against us: terror against the AfD! As a result, citizens of our city have to pay for the mistakes of left-wing policy,” said the Berlin AfD leader Georg Pazderski. In addition, the police will be burdened with overtime.

    Last week, a rented coach of the AfD was attacked with rocks and paint bags by left-wing extremists at Berlin’s East Station. The bus had to be abandoned by the AfD group.

    “This new attack on the car an AfD member shows that the left-wing attack on the bus a week ago was no coincidence. There is a concerted action against the liberal conservative opposition in our city,” said AFD spokesman Ronald Gläser.

    The Senate must end its “cuddly relationship with organised left-wing extremism and deprive Antifa of financial and moral support.”

    In the past, there have been repeated attacks on AfD supporters both in the capital and in other states.

    After the brutal attack on the AfD member of parliament Frank Magnitz in Bremen. politicians of almost all parties hastened to announce that violence should play no part in politics and they condemned the attack.

    But the attack on Magnitz is far from being an isolated incident. On a weekly basis, there are attacks on AfD offices, AfD members and their private homes and vehicles – throughout Germany. And it has been that way since its existence.

    Public concern is often limited due to media silence. Rarely do representatives of other parties condemn the acts. Instead, the AfD on social media is the target of mockery and malice, even though the list of the attacks on the party, is a long one.

    Last month, the party won a legal victory against the country’s domestic spy agency maintaining that the Office for the Protection of the Constitution (BfV) – Germany’s domestic intelligence agency – had defamed the party claiming the party poses a threat to the constitutional order.

    The BfV tried to declare the party a “test case” because of its alleged “extremism” but the Administrative Court of Cologne ruled that the BfV had failed to justify the designation.

    AfD party member Roland Hartwig called it “extremely alarming that the Federal Office, as the guardian of the constitution, is itself breaking the law.”

    A study has meanwhile revealed that the mainstream media’s propaganda about how only the uneducated and the elderly vote for the AfD, is fake news.

    A study from the University of Marburg has demolished the stereotype, showing that AfD voters are those who believe that immigration is bad for Germany.

    Sociologist Martin Schröder noted: “AfD supporters come from every level and part of society.” One thing they have in common is that “they don’t want refugees to migrate to Germany.”

    He interviewed hundreds of AfD voters only to find that “participants with higher education have no significantly higher or lower chance than people with a lower level of education to prefer the AfD”.

    Using multivariate analysis, the sociologist discovered that there was absolutely no direct link between AfD support and employment status and income. “Neither in the middle, nor the top and bottom of the income hierarchy can a particularly high number of AfD supporters be found.”

    According to the study, people who believe that Germany was made better by the presence of immigrants have an 80 percent lower chance of voting for the AfD, while participants who were worried about immigration were 4,6 times as likely to support the party.

    Schröder ahowever concluded that the party was being driven by “xenophobia” because members are concerned about the effects of immigration.

    In fact, Schröder discovered that a privileged person had a statistically a 2,2 percent higher chance of sympathizing with the AfD.

    He concluded that “it is misguided to see the losers of society behind the AfD. The AfD sympathizers have worries about immigration, particularly refugees, and are mainly concerned that they will somehow culturally undermine Germany. Economic disadvantage is only a secondary factor with regard to AfD support”.
