“Germany’s New ‘Far-Right’ Campaign Poster Is Unsubtly Racist,” reads the misleading headline in the Islam-pandering, far-left wing rag, Huffington Post. The poster, from the Alternative for Germany (AfD) party says: “Islam-free Schools” and shows a group of smiling German schoolchildren.
The poster is from the Alternative for Germany (AfD) party which is not “far right,” but increasingly mainstream populist in Germany, the result of Chancellor Angela Merkel’s Open Door Muslim immigration polices which have flooded Germany with more than 1.5 million Muslims in the past 3 years. If anything, the ad is pro-German and anti-Islam, which is a religion, not a race, and should never be a part of any that belongs in a public school. They aren’t talking about NO Muslims in school, they are talking about NO Islam in school.
HuffPost Alternative for Germany, also known as AfD, released the anti-Islam posters in the midst of its election campaign in the southern German state of Bavaria. Recent polls show the party is on track to win the third-largest share of the vote as it saps votes from the traditional conservative party aligned with Open Borders traitor German Chancellor Angela Merkel.
A German teachers’ associations called the posters dangerous, and an Austrian member of the European Parliament accused the party of promoting fascist rhetoric and racially segregated schools. A British hate crime monitoring group also denounced the poster, tweeting, “Welcome to the new face of fascism.” (Not wanting Islam in German schools is not fascist, it’s patriotic)
AfD’s Bavarian anti-Islam posters have added to the backlash against the party. A German teachers’ associations called the posters dangerous, and an Austrian member of the European Parliament accused the party of promoting fascist rhetoric and racially segregated schools. A British hate crime monitoring group also denounced the poster, tweeting, “Welcome to the new face of fascism.”
The party has a history of anti-Islamic propaganda, and during last year’s national elections it worked with a conservative American ad agency to create a controversial series of posters, including one reading “Burkas? We prefer bikinis” and another with a photo of a pregnant white woman with the tagline “New Germans? We’ll make them ourselves.”
AfD claims that the posters are not calling for barring Muslim children from schools, Germany’s Der Spiegel reports, but are opposed to Islamic education in schools and face veils. But some Germans on social media criticized the posters for echoing Nazi-era discrimination against Jewish students, HuffPost Germany reported. (The Jews in Germany weren’t staging terrorist attacks, killing Germans, and threatening to turn Germany into a Jewish state).
While AfD is still shut out of governing in Germany, its success has caused traditional right politicians to swing farther right in hopes of winning back voters, especially prevalent in Bavaria, where the Merkel-allied Christian Social Union is losing support and increasingly embracing anti-immigration, anti-Islamic views.
The advertising campaign moved to a big digital rollout at the end of August with a new, bloody Facebook image: tire tracks criss-crossing European towns, each marked by the number of dead in terror attacks from Manchester to Barcelona. The headline reads “The tracks left by the world chancellor in Europe,” a reference to Merkel — suggesting that those recent terror attacks were produced by Merkel’s immigration policies.
