Austrian politician under fire because of Nazi song
In Austria, scandal has arisen about FPÖ [racist party in the present right-wing Austrian coalition government] politician Udo Landbauer. At the student fraternity where he was vice-chairman, anti-Semitic songs are sung.
The Viennese newspaper Falter received the songbook of student society Germania.
Translation of lines in one of the songs in that book, on page 182, according to the Falter article and to Wikipedia:
Then the Jew Ben Gurion came into their midst: Give it some gas, you old Teutons, we will make it seven million
The NOS article continues:
The Nazis murdered 6 million Jews in the Second World War and about 5 million other people [a very conservative estimate], including Roma and Sinti and disabled people. In other songs Hitler’s conquests, the Wehrmacht [Hitler’s armed forces] and the Waffen-SS are glorified.
The next stanza in the page 182 song of Landbauer’s fraternity says (translated from the Falter article and Wikipedia):
The NOS article continues:
Landbauer (31) has been a member of the ‘Burschenschaft’ (traditional German student association) Germania for sixteen years, but denies that he ever saw this song. President Alexander Van der Bellen does not believe him. “The members must have known what is in that songbook”, he says.
Austrian police have searched Wednesday evening at the association and seized nineteen songbooks. It is being investigated whether anyone can be prosecuted because of incitement.
‘Politician not prosecuted’
The Austrian Interior Minister Herbert Kickl, also FPÖ, has said that he virtually excludes any prosecution of Landbauer. The opposition has responded with anger. “In a democracy, the Public Prosecution Service carries out the investigation, not the minister”, said politician Max Lercher (SPÖ).
In Austria, a coalition of the conservative ÖVP and the right-wing populist [‘populist’ is a wrong term by journalists too scared to use more correct terms like ‘racist’] FPÖ has been ruling since mid-December. The FPÖ was founded by former Nazis and came into the news with various Nazi scandals. These are always dismissed by the party as exceptional cases. Also from national party leader Strache photos surfaced in uniform and between neo-Nazis.
