The son of an Alternative for Germany (AfD) politician in Berlin has received numerous death threats from three of his classmates in Berlin-Biesdorf, prompting some inside the party to blame globalist politicians and the left-wing media for inciting hatred against German rightists.
The 16-year-old son of Gunnar Lindemann turned to police last Friday, saying that classmates had been threatening him and his family over the past weeks and months due to his father’s political activities, Berlin daily newspaper Tagesspiegel reports.
Lindemann’s son alerted police to the situation after he received threats against his life from three classmates, aged 15, 16, and 18 via text message. The 16-year-old first had turned to school management but was forced to go to the police after the school failed to take proper action to ensure his safety.
Lindemann, a member of the Abgeordnetenhaus (House of Representatives) of Berlin, told reporters at Tagesspiegel that the classmates had threatened to ‘cut’ his son ‘up’.
“It is sad that even young people are so incited,” Lindemann added.
Lindemann says he’s confident that police will do everything in their power to investigate the seriousness of the threats.
George Pazderski, the state chairmen for the AfD in Berlin, reacted with utter dismay to the murder threats directed against the son of an AfD member.
“School and police must now crackdown on the perpetrators. There must be no further attacks,” Pazderski said.
Pazderski then blamed Germany’s anti-rightist mainstream press and globalist parties for the incident.
“The incomprehensible incident shows that the excessive agitation against the AfD by old parties and media are completely out of control. Those who sow hatred against us want to harvest acts of violence.”
Prominent voices in the German mainstream press have recently called for more hatred to be direct against members of the AfD.
Last week, Spiegel editor Hasnain Kazim called on AfD voters to be cut off entirely from society.
“It’s not about reaching AfD voters,” Kazim wrote on Twitter. “It’s about cutting them off, outlawing them, keeping them small, giving them a hard time, calling them to account for paving the way to power for neo-Nazis and racists.”
The day before, Deutschlandfunk published a piece where the writer called on his audience to develop stronger feelings of hatred for AfD supporters, Focus Online reports.
“We have to learn to hate again – and rightly so,” the author said. “Anyone who believes that hate is generally a thing of the past also believes in the irreversibility of history and democratic civilization.”
