German weekend football dominated by AfD chief’s ‘racist’ Boateng comment

30 May 2016

There is local pride in the Berlin district where [African-]German international footballer Jerome Boateng grew up.

But his and Germany’s performance on the pitch at the weekend were overshadowed by the furore following allegedly racist comments by the deputy chief of the right-wing AfD (Alternative for Germany) party.

The newspaper Frankfurter Allgemeine Sontagszeitung claims that Alexander Gauland, 75, said that Germans thought he was a good footballer but did not want him as a neighbour.

Translated from Dutch NOS TV today:

The German [right-wing] newspaper Welt am Sonntag says its has an email in which AfD party leader Alice Weidel describes Arabs, Sinti and Roma as “uncivilised people that we are swamped with”. The letter states that “enemies of the constitution [who govern us]” are doing that for the “systematic destruction of bourgeois society”.

The Merkel government is described as “nothing more than puppets of the Allies in World War II, who have the task of keeping the German people subjected by foreign infiltration inducing molecular civil war in urban areas.” The members of the government are called “pigs”. …

Weidel was relatively unknown until recently but became part of the party leadership after party president Frauke Petry was sidelined after a battle with the far right wing of the party. She is supposedly the liberal face of the AfD, which is pronouncedly anti-Islam.

The 100% neonazis in the AfD party were dissatisfied that under Ms Petry, the party was only 50% neonazi. So they replaced Petry with two party leaders: Alexander Gauland of the racist footballer Boateng comment, clearly further to the right than Petry, and supposedly ‘moderate’ Ms Weidel. Ms Weidel is supposedly moderate for being lesbian while the party platform is homophobic.

Now it turns out that to be a ‘moderate’ racist like Ms Weidel is a bit like being ‘moderately pregnant’.

Ms Weidel is an ex-investment banker and a member of the Friedrich A. von Hayek-Gesellschaft. This organisation was originally founded to promote the pro-Big Business ideas of Austrian economist Friedrich A. von Hayek. But, according to their former president, Ms Karen Horn, who resigned in protest, the organisation at first only attacked socialist and Keynesian economists, but then extended the attacks to ‘democracy, feminism, pluralism, homosexuality and atheism‘.

Not only Ms Weidel, but at least two other prominent AfD politicians are Friedrich A. von Hayek-Gesellschaft members. They are Peter Boehringer and Lady Beatrix von Storch, née Duchess of Oldenburg, the granddaughter of Hitler’s finance minister and convicted war criminal Count Schwerin von Krosigk.

Meet Alice Weidel, the Former Goldman Sachs Banker and Lesbian Leader of Germany’s Far-right. Since its founding in 2013, the euroskeptic AfD led by Weidel, has sparked concern and controversy in Germany, even going as far as a court case in which it was deemed legal for a comedian to refer to Weidel as a ‘Nazi slut’: here.

  10. The notorious Friedrich von Hayek, Margaret Thatcher’s guru, was an avid proponent of the EU and he was certainly no democrat.

    He infamously said: “I have not been able to find a single person even in much-maligned Chile who did not agree that personal freedom was much greater under Pinochet than it had been under Allende.”

    He favoured a European federal state not because it would give citizens more democratic control but precisely the opposite — to hinder real political involvement and democracy and offer free rein to the market free-for-all of capitalism.

    He wrote that the abolition of sovereign nation states and the creation of an effective international legal order are necessary complements and a logical completion of the “liberal” programme, adding that all in all, it is probable that in a European federation the power of single states over their economies would be slowly and extensively weakened and “should be” [!]

    In the end, he continued, national governments will be in such a straitjacket that they will not be able to introduce laws like the restriction of child labour or the regulation of working time of their own accord.

    We need to be reminded of the real history behind the establishment of the EU to disabuse ourselves of all the flowery paeans about it “saving us from another war,” promoting integration and co-operation between citizens.
