Member Of Parliament From Germany's AfD Fighting For His Life After 'Politically-Motivated' Attack

Frank Magnitz, chairman of the Alternative for Germany (AfD) party in Bremen is fighting for his life in hospital due to a heavy head injury sustained after he was attacked by three unknown assailants on the evening of January 7th.

The AfD statement claimed that the attack was a “politically-motivated attempted assassination,” and posting a graphic image of the injured member of German parliament.

Armed with wooden sticks, the three men beat the politician repeatedly on the head and kicked him while he was already on the ground. At that point a construction worker saw the assault and tried to intervene. According to the statement, the attack took place immediately after Frank Magnitz left the New Year’s reception near Bremen’s Goethe platz.

AfD spokesperson Jörg Meuthen also commented on the attack on Twitter:

“This is Frank #Magnitz, MEP of. #AfD He was beaten half-dead by several attackers in Bremen earlier.

At the moment I am so devastated that I find myself unable to comment further on this. I will speak out tomorrow on this cowardly and repugnant attack.”

Authorities are on the hunt for the attackers and have not yet determined the motives behind the attack. However, the AfD, a far-right party has gained popularity in Germany, similar to such movements in other EU countries in recent years. It has come under heavy criticism and attacks over its anti-immigration and other conservative policies.

On January 4th, three people were detained over an explosion that damaged the office of the far-right AfD in the German city of Döbeln.

Anti-terror investigators are looking at the incident as an escalation following other anti-AfD vandalism.

“The attack against the AfD office in Döbeln is extraordinary given that the explosion meant accepting that people could be harmed,” the state police said.

Police said there had been a series of attacks against AfD offices in the eastern state of Saxony in recent weeks, but added that most of them were limited to vandalism.

Saxony’s Interior Minister Roland Wöller said the state would not tolerate such attacks and pledged a severe response.

“We are dealing with a completely new level of violence against politicians,” he said.

Martin Dulig, Saxony’s deputy prime minister and a member of the center-left Social Democratic Party (SPD), condemned the attack on Twitter and said that such attacks actually help AfD.

“There’s no justification for the attack on the AfD office in Döbeln,” he wrote. “Violence is not a means of democracy. The AfD must be fought politically and not with explosives. This attack helps the AfD and hurts democracy.”

    I am in no way saying it was his own fault and i dont know the man or what he stands for/against, but i know politicians that i would not cry over if they got killed or assaulted.

    • Drogba

      Especially scumbags like Nutandyahoo, and other zionist psychopathic liars and warmongering lunatics.

    • John Brown

      The AFD should accuse Merkel and her party of ordering the assassination and ask for an investigation of her and her party by the German government and the EU. This way if a proper investigation is not done and the guilty not caught there will be no doubt Merkel and her party ordered the assassination. The AFD should not hold back if they want to win. You can’t beat satan with one hand tied behind your back. Merkel and her satanists have shown they won’t hold back

  • Felix D (TUPPERWARE PARTY)

    Good luck if you expect Fuhrerin Merkel’s Stasi to conduct a serious investigation.

    • John Brown

      For maximum effect the AFD should accuse Merkel and her party of ordering the assassination and ask for an investigation of her and her party by the German government and the EU. This way if a proper investigation is not done and the guilty not caught there will be no doubt Merkel and her party ordered the assassination. The AFD should not hold back if they want to win. You can’t beat satan with one hand tied behind your back. Merkel and her satanists have shown they won’t hold back

  • Henk Poell

    Martin Dulig’s main reason to condemn this attack: “it helps the AfD”. There are no words of compassion for the victim at all.

  • Drogba

    Looks like the zionists are stirring the Shit again,they are desperate to find a way to stop the AfD,because they are opposed to the zionists agenda to destroy Christian European culture.Just look at the half hearted concern for this member of parliament, Disgusting.

    • Elisabeth Jenders

      Not Zionists – the AfD stands very much for Israel, that’s what they have in common with the left. It’s that the left have no more arguments to defeat the AfD in a debate.

      • Drogba

        WTF are you on about,.?.The AfD has nothing to do with warmongering zionist israhell,.it’s only concern is with the damage the zionist Merkel regime is doing to their country,You haven’t got a clue what’s going on.

        • Elisabeth Jenders

          Then please express youself clearly. And show respect to other commentators. I am German, living in Germany – I do know what’s going on!

          • Drogba

            I live in Germany also,I do see what’s going on,and if telling the truth makes you feel unrespected,then so be it,.Where is your concern about the mass immigration brought about by Merkels zionist regime?And the attacks on German women?

          • Elisabeth Jenders

            Let’s stick to the topic. An attack on a politician by probably an opposite group.
            Ir has nothing to do with Zionists. And mass immigration is just a side aspect in this case.
            Is it European culture to throw around words like “shit” and “scumbag”?

          • Monte George Jr

            Zionists ARE the “opposite group”. Not just in Germany, but throughout the western countries. They are the perennial root of terrorism.

  • SFC Steven M Barry USA RET

    Most likely Antifa. Looks like it’s time for AfD to organize some Brownshirts.

    • Drogba

      The AfD represents ordinary concerned german civilians ,who daily see their women attacked,and people terrorised by hordes of out of control immigrants,brought in by Merkels zionist government. It’s an insult to decent people everywhere to call them right wing facists just because they want to protect their country.There would be no AfD,if the people had proper leadership,instead of the traitors that are in charge.

      • SFC Steven M Barry USA RET

        I’m not putting down AfD. I’m huge fan. And I’m serious. Attacks on AfD will not stop until the Reds (of all shades) are bleeding in the streets.

        • Drogba

          You mean Zionist scumbags, they are behind this attack.

    • Feudalism Victory

      Self defence is an inalienable human right.

    • Barba_Papa

      That’s how the brownshirts started, when in response to communist agitation and violence after WW1 former German army vets organized themselves in defense in socalled Freikorps. Similarly in Italy. From those movements arose Mussolini’s fascists and Hitler’s nazi’s. The extreme left claims it fights facism and nazism, and yet it not only caused those movements to come about, it also failed abysmally at stopping them.

      For those reasons alone Antifa should be stopped and crushed, before they unleash yet another horror upon us.

  • Listening to German radio this morning you realize that Germany is a NWO dictatorship, this new was NOT announced, top topic besides the snow was how much the police is looking after the hacker who published private data of the main stream politician, when a similar attack was against AfD this was totally unnoticed ( I am not able to find the link but 8 rember it happened ) ah, but Dfl informed me that in Italy “there is resistance” ( = snowflakes glibalist politicians want to sue ) against the anti immigration policy of the minister of the interior …
