A dentist in Berlin is being harassed and threatened by Antifa mobs because he is a member of the AfD (Alternative für Deutschland, Alternative for Germany) party. The lefties who demonstrate in front of his office have the stated intention of shutting down his practice.

State-supported leftist mob harasses dentist because he is a member of the AfD
For years, the dentist Dr. Marius Radtke (64) has been treating patients in his practice at the Pistoriusstraße in Weißensee.
Marius Radtke works as a volunteer in the function of spokesman for the Lichtenberg district association of the Alternative für Deutschland (AfD) party. This has made him a target of left-wing groups who are determined to make his life difficult.
They dropped “warnings” into mailboxes in the neighborhood, which were meant to inform patients that their dentist was a member of the “racist, antisocial and hypocritical AfD party”.
Then they sent warnings to the other dental practices in the area and asked the “dear practice teams” not to refer any more patients to Dr. Radtke. In this manner they have tried to ruin the dentist economically since April 13. On their portal “Antifascist Initiative” the leftists celebrate concerning this action, using the motto: “Pulling out Germany’s teeth!”
Demonstration in front of dentist’s practice
Then, on Thursday, May 12, it happened: 60 black-clad people demonstrated in front of the dentist’s practice. The police secured the door behind which Dr. Radtke worked with his dentist’s drill in hand, while they hurled insults at him from the street.
The march to the dentist’s office, which used the title “Weissensee ist bunt”, (Weissensee is colorful), was supported by three groups. One of the groups is the “Willkommensnetzwerk Pankow Hilft” (Welcome-Network Pankow Helps). This network receives direct financial aid from the federal government, specifically the Ministry for Family.
“Pankow Hilft” is the recipient of plenty of praise and favorable mentions in public for their voluntary work with migrants and asylum seekers.
Now, the helpers have turned up at Pistoriusstraße, not to help, however, but to insult a dentist because he is a member of the AfD.
All this happened a week ago. The public wasn’t mentionably upset about it. And that may be the worst yet. Because if this becomes the norm, that people because of their political preferences may be harassed by an angry mob with the goal of keeping that person from practicing his livelihood, then democracy has arrived at the end. Then we will enter very quickly into a new age of street fights.
Berlin city officials cloaked in silence
In April, the minister president of Thüringen, Bodo Ramelow (Left) vehemently condemned in clear language the demonstration of left extremists in front of the residence of the leading AfD figure Björn Höcke. Ramelow spoke of “Nazi-tactics”.
It’s with this same kind of bluntness with which the campaign against the Berlin dentist should have also been condemned. But the city leader cloaked himself in silence. As did other politicians, from whom not a word was heard as well.
If one wishes to dispute Dr. Radtke, he should be invited to a discussion. But that is apparently not at all what these left marchers want. They want to finish off a person, because they don’t like him.
