AfD election campaign in Hamburg shut down

The AfD Hamburg has not found a place in the city to complete its campaign. Therefore, the event with AfD leader Jörg Meuthen had to take place in Henstedt-Ulzburg in Schleswig-Holstein, the party said on Tuesday.

    A few days ago, a restaurant in the Wilhelmsburg district had told the AfD  that they were not welcome there. Previously, the Hamburg “Alliance against Right” had asked the landlord not to rent any rooms to the AfD.

    Hamburg’s AfD chief Dirk Nockemann said that his party would be massively restricted in the campaign for the general election next weekend. “Unscrupulous and violent left-wing extremists trample on our fundamental democratic rights. Many talk about the climate emergency, but Hamburg has long experienced a democratic emergency,” said Nockemann.

    He also blamed the Senate for this. It has been financing and tolerating left-wing extremist structures for years. “When will the public finally understand that Antifa has our democracy firmly in a headlock,” the MP said.

    On the night of Monday, left-wing extremists had vandalized the house of Nockemann. The perpetrators had thrown several bottles of champagne filled with paint against the facade and several windows around two o’clock, the AfD politician said.

    The alleged perpetrators then claimed responsibility on the extreme left-wing website “Indymedia”.

    While the outrage over the AfD’s votes was still making waves in the Thuringian state parliament, the apartment block was smeared with paint because the AfD allegedly stands for racism and repression. “It is unbearable that the AfD sits in state parliaments, has its say in the media and spreads its inhuman propaganda!”

      The state of political dissent is a fairly sound indicator of a government’s ability to ensure basic freedoms of speech and assembly. Such freedoms no longer seem to exist in Hamburg with regard to the AfD. The latter has been the target of long-standing government, media, and leftist-globalist campaigns of misrepresentation and political smears. The aim has been to portray the AfD as “far-right” and extremist, and such labeling has even made it into the reporting by the mainstream media, including the wire services, all a terrible lapse of objectivity and impartial reporting. This may have slowed, but not stopped, the steady growth of AfD support among the German electorate. Hence the use of pseudo-anarchists and other hirelings by interests allied with the Merkel regime. These disruptors are brought in when the dirty tricks of the Merkel government and its coalition parties, especially the leftist SPD, are not sufficient to frustrate AfD meetings and exercise of its political rights. And threats and outright violence against the AfD are tolerated by the authorities, which only encourages further such activities. All this should make readers wonder about the state of democracy in Merkel’s Germany.
