Still, we don’t know who beat up Frank Magnitz so that he had to be hospitalized. We do not yet know the motives of the perpetrator. Obvious to suspect that they have invaded the AfD-politician for political reasons. They probably see themselves as fighters for the Good against right-wing radicalism and fascism.

The AfD is dangerous, because they are Nazis and racists have a political home. Many of the Comments from the party are repulsive, they poison the public discourse with propaganda and conspiracy theories. In not a few followers, you have to assume that you want to replace our liberal democracy with an authoritarian System. Therefore, it is right to fight in the parliaments, to panel discussions, and, if necessary, also with the resources of the judiciary and of the constitutional protection.

blows but they do not replace arguments. No AfD supporters will turn away because of such fact by the party, rather, such an attack would be a closing of the ranks – that’s why he is so Bad, there are also political stupidity. The attack is also not a democratic self-defense against a supposedly imminent Takeover of our country by the authoritarian right. Those who believe that our democracy is weaker than it is. Who is, has been lost to the democracy in principle.

The Deputy Magnitz like to talk terrible stuff, he may pursue policy objectives that are wrong, and in the strongest possible terms to reject. But he is a human being. If there should still be some unifying elements in this politically divided society, but the Consensus that we must not take all the rejection of each other’s heads, please.

Hopefully, the perpetrators have invaded, the Magnitz and beaten, quickly caught and punished. They may consider themselves anti-fascist hero, in fact, they are only brutal Criminals. And Frank Magnitz may be quickly and fully recover. That you can fight him again soon: with words.
