From daily The Independent in Britain today:
Men who had fled war and persecution in their home country rush to the aid of politician who has previously made statements including ‘the boat is full’, ‘stop the asylum flood‘ and ‘integration is genocide’
Stefan Jagsch from the National Democratic Party of Germany (NPD) had swerved off the road and collided with a tree in the central German town of Büdingen, near Frankfurt.
A coach of Syrian refugees happened to be passing the accident scene in a bus and two rushed to the stricken man’s aid.
They managed to pull the badly hurt politician from the wreckage and administered first aid, according to Spiegel Online.
Bild reported Mr Jagsch suffered two broken legs and a cut to the face as a result of the accident.
Jagsch, 29, had been the party’s lead candidate for a local elections in the town of Altenstadt in the German state of Hesse.
He has reportedly posted statements on his Facebook page including “the boat is full”, “stop the asylum flood” and “integration is genocide”.
NPD won 10 per cent of Altenstadt vote in the recent elections.
The German coalition government of the Christian Democratic Union (CDU) and the Social Democratic Party (SPD) is seeking to further restrict the rights of immigrants. Minister of the Interior Thomas de Maizière announced on Saturday that he and Minister of Employment Andrea Nahles (SPD) will present the draft of a new integration law to the cabinet in May. It will include “harsh measures” against refugees who do not comply with regulations: here.
In recent days, two cases have come to notice in which representatives of the establishment parties have supported neo-Nazis. In Altenstadt in the state of Hesse, Christian Democrats (CDU), Free Democrats (FDP) and Social Democrats (SPD) voted unanimously for Stefan Jagsch, a member of the neo-Nazi German National Party (NPD), as local mayor. In Hanau, SPD Mayor Claus Kaminsky awarded Bert-Rüdiger Förster, a member of the far-right Republikaner, who had formed a faction with the NPD, with the Ehrenbrief (honorary letter of recognition) of the state of Hesse. In both cases, local representatives of the establishment parties justified their actions and praised the fascist politicians: here.
