Ned Kelly, who tipped us to the incident, included this brief background summary
A German politician, a member of Angela Merkel’s CDU, who told critics of her illegal mass immigration policy they “can leave Germany if they don’t like it”, was found shot dead in his garden over the weekend (head shot). The police are puzzled about the motive.
The video below shows the meeting at which Mr. Lübcke invited those who disagreed with him to leave the country. Many thanks to MissPiggy for the translation, and to Vlad Tepes for the subtitling:
Below are excerpts from an article in the English-language service of Deutsche Welle about the death of Walter Lübcke:
German district president found dead with gunshot wound — report
Walter Lübcke was discovered in his garden with a gunshot wound to his head, according to a local media report. Police said there was no indication of suicide and that they were looking for a perpetrator.
The president of the regional council of the central German city of Kassel was found dead in his garden early Sunday morning.
A spokesman for Walter Lübcke’s party, the conservative Christian Democratic Union (CDU), confirmed the 65-year-old’s death late on Sunday.
Regional news outlet HNA reported that Lübcke had been found with a bullet wound to his head and that police had found no weapon at the scene.
The CDU described the Lübcke as a “bridge builder” who never shied away from “telling it as it is.”
