Marine Le Pen, France’s right wing populist leader, has slammed “submission to Germany” after Angela Merkel, the German Chancellor, vowed to “ensure” Ms. Le Pen’s party is kept out of power in France.
The Chancellor’s intervention, “shows interference in our internal affairs as outrageous and humiliating for France, and marks a cruel truth: that of submission of our country to Germany”, said the leader of the Front National in a statement today.
Ms. Le Pen was responding to comments made by the German Chancellor last Friday, when she told students at the French high school in Berlin that the populist right was a phenomenon that “we have to deal with”.
Meanwhile, in Germany, the cool-as new party Alternative for Germany released their first ever manifesto:
0n Saturday and Sunday more than 2,000 members of the Alternative for Germany (AfD) political party gathered, despite violent opposition from left-wing activists, to debate the first party manifesto.
The 78-page manifesto has 14 chapters on a range of policy and has now been published online.
The manifesto, of course, is packed with perfectly reasonable common sense. But you know how horrified leftists are by reason. That violent opposition from left-wing activists was followed by some doxxing…
The publication of the addresses of many of the members of the AfD by left wing extremists in Germany has led to growing concerns for the safety of party members and officials.
Paul Hampel who is the Chief of the AfD in Lower Saxony has called on the government to shut down websites which have published private personal information about AfD members, saying that the tactic is akin to “red terror,” Junge Freiheit reports.
Since the publication of the addresses AfD members have complained about harassment from left wing extremists. A member of the party in Brandenburg received multiple threatening phone calls during the night after the publication of their information on a well known left wing website.
Just the standard methods of left wingers.
