00:00   Arson attack on AFD campaign cars in Essen, Germany.
00:11   Man, Guido! What a mess! Our beautiful smart cars. —Yes, I am completely stunned.
00:15   Look what point we’ve come to. —Yes. —These are campaign tactics in 2019.
00:20   So this is how the largest opposition party in the country is treated.
00:24   These smart cars, as you know, we bought in 2017 and for that election campaign they were well received.
00:30   And they were supposed to go on the road, every day for the next four weeks and this is what we have here now.
00:36   I am really appalled. —You can’t even say that they were just parked on the street somewhere. They’re parked
00:44   in a tucked-away area. This is just nasty sneaky attack. It looks like this is a normal road but it is a back courtyard area.
00:52   And we deliberately went here because we’re here in the commercial area. —Yes. —A commercial area in which many
00:57   migrants operate. —OK. —This is a really secure place, you might not think so, but this is where I kept my warm-up bus
01:02   for the homeless. That bus drove over 80,000 km [50,000 miles] and nothing ever happened to it.
01:07   That’s because I always parked in areas where working people or migrants were. Unfortunately, we got caught here this time.
01:14   Yes, that’s true. —It is especially bitter now for the owner of the building. We handle the loss of these Smart cars,
01:19   but we have building damage here reaching probably €250,000. And no insurance covers that.
01:25   No insurance will cover that. —That’s nuts. —Even more crass is that it is quite clear that lives are being played with here.
01:33   Thank God the building was empty. Imagine if someone was living here. —It appears that they, and we can assume it was
01:39   radical left forces. They stop at nothing now. It doesn’t really matter to them if people are living there or
01:50   might have lived there. They probably didn’t check that before, right? —In fact, somebody does live on the other side. —Yes.
01:55   All the window panes are broken from the heat. —By the heat, yes. —Thank God he woke up and was able to run
02:01   right over here and started putting out the fire on the cars. Otherwise it would’ve been much worse.
02:04   The whole building complex could have burned down. So, absolutely unbelievable.
02:09   And that’s not the only incident. Have a look at our events. Cologne-Kalk is still in memory. Now Düsseldorf.
02:17   Attacks on events Participants in both Cologne-Kalk and in Düsseldorf. Another topic is renting locations for events.
02:24   We are unable to rent a single event hall in NRW or the Ruhr area. Totally impossible.
02:29   Yes it starts, I’ll just say, with little things, like tearing down election posters. The next level is, as you’ve already mentioned,
02:35   events. Then there are the attacks on our info stands and our AfD offices or people who work for the AfD. And now arson.
02:46   There was also the Magnitz case, where someone might almost have died. You really wonder where this leads to.
02:50   It is an attack, in my opinion, it is not only an attack against the AfD. It is an attack against democracy.
02:55   It is definitely an attack on democracy, but in spite of it all we will not be intimidated. I have come to the conclusion that
03:04   we’re the ones who are truly tolerant. We actually live tolerance, because we have a lot to do endure. We really endure a lot.
03:10   For three years now, every morning when I get up, I think, “So it’s enough!” That’s not going to change.
03:16   And we’re going to hang on and not be intimidated. The European election campaign will be a huge success.
03:20   I am firmly convinced of that. I think the two of us are a top team as candidates. We complement each other so well and
03:25   have really a lot fun. Especially when we’re on stage together. —Exactly. The events we had that were permitted to take place
03:29   were great. —Yes. —They were a huge success. And it will continue to be. —Yes, I think this attack, for instance
03:35   will cause many people, who were maybe even skeptical about the AfD, to say this has gone too far.
03:42   It will, as sad this situation is, cause a reaction of defiance where they might say, “Very well, we stand with the AfD since
03:53   they are only ones speaking the truth and pay this price for it.” This is the price for speaking the truth. Well, then.
03:59   I really hope that the upstanding democrats in our country that still exist, not necessarily those who share our opinion,
04:03   but those upstanding democrats wake up and rise. This is just unacceptable in a democratic country. Thank you.

    • There aren’t Nazis anymore. But there are democrats who call … fascist, populist, xenophob, far right etc all those who dare to not agree with them and their politically correct attitude.

    • you should mention that the BfV is a government agency following its masters whim . The Antifa-Nazis are doing their job: keep opponents at bay.
