Germany: Left-wing extremists threaten to murder female AfD MP

By Arthur Lyons 5 December 2019










Left-wing extremists threatened to murder a member of parliament from the populist Alternative for Germany (AfD) on Wednesday, leaving a wooden cross outside of her office with words reading, “Nazi whore Baum, after you no cock will crow, died on December 31st, 2019.”


Police in Heilbronn have confirmed the incident which occurred outside of Christina Baum’s dental office in Lauda-Königshofen, Württemberg, Spiegel Online reports.


“The cross was provided with various inscriptions, which contain on the one hand insults and on the other a threat to the member of parliament,” police said in a statement. The German domestic intelligence service has since taken over the investigation.














Baum, who has sat in the Baden-Württemberg state parliament since 2016, posted a photo of the cross on social media, writing: “The hatred of our political opponents is bearing fruit.”


This isn’t Baum’s first experience with left-wing extremists. In October, Baum’s campaign office in Tauberbischofsheim was attacked and suffered considerable material damage.


In response to the incident, AfD leader Jörg Meuthen said: “The seeds of hate being spread by governments and old parties against the AfD are daunting, and this threat to Christina Baum is just the tip of the iceberg, with attacks on AfD officials becoming more common and events of the AfD attacked, it is now apparently against life and limb of AfD politicians.”


“I strongly urge the old parties and parts of the media to stop their hatred and their incitement against the AfD,” Meuthen added.


In the third quarter of this year, the Alternative for Germany became the most frequent victim of political violence. Of the 52 attacks on party headquarters and offices that occurred, 26 were directed at the AfD.
