In his speech, but also in an interview with Swedish weekly Nya Tider, he called on all conscious nationalists to stand up for their rights against the globalists, and addressed the disastrous political situation in today’s Germany. Last but not least, he believes that the Swedish sister party Alternative for Sweden has a lot of potential in future Swedish politics.
At AfS’s election campaign on Saturday, August 6, many speakers were invited on stage in the amphitheater in Rålambshovsparken, Stockholm, including guests from abroad. One of them was Stefan Korte, active in the German nationalist party Alternative für Deutschland (AfD). He is a board member of one of the district associations of the eastern state of Brandenburg, but is also active as a political secretary in the German Bundestag in the service of his party group.
‘We need European unity, but not the EU!’
Korte often touched on the situation in the world characterized by the uncertain economy, coupled with the energy crisis and attack on traditional values, especially in the West. He believes that there are strong forces in the global arena, including the EU, which are key players today, and nationalists in Europe must be aware of these actors. The solution, he said in his speech, was unity in Europe, but not the EU.
“It is absolutely not a supranational EU that we need. We Europeans who are conscious nationalists in our own homelands need to unite in order to defend the common, traditional values that are nevertheless fundamental in European civilization. They now want to take that away from us. We absolutely do not need a supranational EU, which is now a left-liberal project. Cooperation between free nations is something else entirely.”
‘A policy that totally ignores the needs of the people’
Stefan Korte is also deeply concerned about the general situation in today’s Germany.
“How do we deal with the consequences of sanctions against Russia; the high inflation and how insanely they’ve tackled the energy crisis with gas is getting more and more expensive meaning that the current government has absolutely no policy for the basic needs of the people. Add to that how our freedoms which were curtailed during the so-called Corona pandemic.”
‘Good at self-hate’
He also believes that German society is imbued with a palpable self-hatred towards themselves both as a nation and as a people.
“The Marxist Frankfurt School within higher learning institutions has purposefully ensured that we as Germans are generally ashamed to be proud of being German. For many, pride in being German is almost the same as being called a Nazi, and no one wants to be if they don’t want to be ostracized. But we need the opposite, namely that we should be able to be proud of our heritage, our culture, that we are Germans, proud of our origins, proud of our people.”
‘We have argued about internal matters a little too publicly’
The AfD felt until the start of the Corona pandemic that they were riding a wave of success. In state after state they entered the regional parliaments, and in many states the position was further strengthened, above all in eastern Germany. Then the decline began. In the last federal election in September 2021, they lost two percent compared to the election in 2017 and now have around 10 percent. In several states, previous bad choices were compounded.
Korte believes that more recently to some extent, internal quarrels became a public matter in the mainstream media, which contributed to diminish, slander and mock the party, according to him.
“They wanted to make it a bigger thing than it might have been because there are currents in the party that want to go in slightly different directions. We should have learned to manage it more internally instead of arguing with each other in public.”
NyT : How would you describe the atmosphere in the party now after you had the party congress last spring?
“I would like to say that the mood is about to get much better now.”
With a better atmosphere in the party, Stefan Korte also believes that things can improve for the AfD in public opinion.
“We are the only opposition party in today’s Germany. Now that more people are beginning to feel in their own bodies how the sanctions against Russia are hitting us more than them, when more people are now not going to be able to afford to buy enough food or to heat their houses, then I think we will be the party that people see as having the solutions needed to deal with the catastrophic situation in today’s Germany.”
‘AfS has great potential for the future’
NyT : Last but not least. What do you think of the recently concluded election campaign that Alternativ för Sverige has held here today?
“I think Alternativ för Sverige has shown great professionalism at today’s event. It was very well executed. I think Alternative for Sweden has good potential for the future in Swedish politics. I think the party has a very good chance of getting a lot of votes in the election that you will have in September.”

The politically motivated sabotage behind the apparently serious and wanton damage to the gas pipelines Nordstream 1 and Nordstream 2 were likely ordered by a technically and militarily highly developed state. The aim of this crime, a very large-scale crime, could only have been to destroy any hope of further gas deliveries from Russia to Germany.
