Another left-wing extremist arson attack on AfD member

Left-wing extremists perpetrated an arson attack on a Dresden AfD official on Monday night. According to the police, they set fire to a wooden carport on the property of former Dresden AfD district board member Hans-Joachim Klaudius.

    The fire also destroyed a Skoda Octavia parked in the carport. The flames completely destroyed the car and the carport. In addition, heat damage to the house occurred. As a political motive is assumed, the unit at the Saxon State Criminal Police Office for extremism and terrorism have taken over the investigation.

    The AfD member of parliament Carsten Hütter spoke of an escalation that is reminiscent of “crisis areas”. The fact is not an isolated case either. And despite that, there has never been any success in any of the investigations. “The Saxon state government has been guilty of not taking active measures against violent offenders for years,” complained Hütter. “Political pressure must be increased in order to finally master this escalating terrorism by all means, abiding by the rule of law,” said the AfD MP.

    André Wendt, head of the AfD in Dresden, made a similar statement. “This arson attack and all the other countless attacks underpin that we have a massive problem with left-wing extremism in Saxony and Germany,” warned the AfD MP.

    “They are terrorists who do not stop at attacks on life and limb. In this case, this case was not only against the car and carport of our member. In this case death or injury was consciously accepted. According to the fire brigade, the fire did not spread to the surrounding buildings because it was almost windless the previous night.”

    It has been long overdue to lead the fight against left-wing extremism in the country with the necessary harshness and political will. The public funding of associations that are close to the extreme left-wing scene must also be investigated.

    It was only in August that left-wing extremists attacked Klaudius’ house with stones on the edge of a demonstration in Dresden. As everywhere in Germany, the AfD is regularly the victim of left-wing violence in Saxony.
