Alice Weidel, Co-leader of Germany’s AfD, (Alternative for Deutschland) speaks to Narrative media, on the amazing gains for the party in recent East German elections.
The Alternative for Germany, (AfD) is pretty much the only classical European party on the German political spectrum. They are family oriented, want secure borders, and believe in the preservation of the nation state of Germany, much as President Trump does of America.
The legacy media, feigning an interview, attempts to debate the co-leader, and cast aspersions of being “far-right”. But Alice Weidel handles it amazingly, explaining that the public grows weary of the same tactics and Neo-Marxist language that the majority of large media in the West now uses.
While the legacy media calls the AfD a “Far right wing party” and often even “Nazi” it is interesting to see a former head of Israeli Mossad, Rafi Eitan, not only endorse the AfD, but wish that all European nations had a party as classically Western in its values as the AfD.
To understand the reality of the election results, please see the graph below:
The AfD had very strong results in Saxony and Brandenburg, but you have not achieved your ambitious election goal of becoming the strongest party. How do you assess the election results? So, I think it’s not the prognoses, but the results that count. We have achieved a phenomenal, outstanding result, and we’re celebrating that. We have reached an historic high in Brandenburg and Saxony. Above all, it means that in Saxony, 60 percent of the voters voted conservatively.
The CDU will have to ask itself whether it would like to maintain this blockade attitude after all. The CDU has clearly stated here in Saxony and, of course, in all other federal states: No cooperation with the AfD. What do you want for your party and for your voters, if no one else works with you? —I’ll return the question. I believe that these parties will no longer be able to maneuver around us strategically.
As a conservative force, they will have to speak with us. That’s exactly what has landed at the feet of the SPD and CDU parties in government. The way we are dealt with as a party, that we are permanently put in the extreme right corner and defamed. The voters can understand this, the citizens can see what’s happening very clearly. If the CDU, especially in Saxony, were to decide to continue its course of putting us in this corner, and really, they’re ignoring more than a quarter of the voters, not involving them, that would be a serious mistake.
In that case, the result for the CDU will be far more catastrophic in the next state elections than they have been this time around. One might see that differently. The AfD should distance itself clearly and unambiguously from the right-wing periphery. Then you could get out of your dirty corner. —What do you mean by “right wing periphery”?
This is an example of something I don’t understand at all. —I mean, for example, the AfD in Chemnitz together with right-wing radicals. Another example: the AfD appearances at Pegida. A further example is the statements by many AfD members and officials. So that’s your definition of right-wing radical?
I just asked you for an example, a concrete one, but you couldn’t give me one. You’re calling Pegida a right-wing radical movement. A movement in which thousands of ordinary citizens who have had it up to here go out onto the street and protest so their voices can be heard. I wouldn’t call that right-wing radical. I would be very careful…But at Pegida demonstrations, right-wing extremist speakers gave speeches.
The same was true for the demonstrations in Chemnitz. There’s no point in repeating this debate. The question is clear, do you want…
—You’re interrupting me… You’re interrupting me. —Of course. You aren’t even allowing me to answer. —I’ll finish the question to the end. Then it is your turn. Wouldn’t it make sense for the AfD to distinguish itself clearly [from right-wing radicals] so it would be accepted by the other parties? So here’s the real point: You asked this question twice.
You interrupted me three times. I gave you my answer.
The writing is on the wall. There has been a pure defamation campaign against the AfD. We’re permanently put in a right-wing corner, so eventually the citizens no longer believe that. This evening you’ve proved that the media play a major role in this, and that’s why citizens have lost faith in you.
I wish you a pleasant evening. —We’re just trying to do our job. —Goodbye. —Heartfelt thanks.”
