AfD started off as a eurosceptic party known for opposing the euro currency, though it
reached the European parliament and won seven seats. What a contradiction! But what has started as eurosceptism now became blunt discrimination of minorities and racism: One of the party's
leader, Konrad Adam, suggested to prevent the unemployed and retired people from their right to vote, because they are a burden on society. Frauke Petry (one of its leaders) said, that the German
police should be allowed to shoot at refugees if they try to cross the German border.
The AfD adopts a clear speech against migrants but is depending on them at the same
It only grew as quickly because it uses the refugees to exploit the anxiety of some
Germans about the consequences of the refugee influx. The AfD apparently uses the hard situation of the federal government who seeks an European solution for the refugees.
For the time being, what makes me sad as a former refugee from Syria, is the increase
of people who support this hate speech. Maybe not everyone who voted for AfD necessarily adopts its racism. Maybe they think AfD is just discussing the current issues and suggesting some easy
solutions. I hope they detect sooner or later the real intentions and danger of this party. Consequently, they would stop supporting it.
A lot of refugees and migrants nowadays are actually worried about their destiny in
case Mrs. Merkel loses the next elections.They believe that the next government might be a disaster. They are afraid of deportation and oppression as well as loosing the support. Some even fear
that the asylum law will be canceled!
I do not think that the results of these elections reflect the reality of the German
society. This will be proved as soon as the government finds a good solution for the refugees case.
In fact, all of the parties in the federal parliament (Bundestag) are in favour of the
refugees even if so in varying degrees. They agree with Merkel´s strategy, against the thoughts and beliefs of the AfD!
Personally, I trust the German people and respect their choices. As a result no one
needs to worry or be afraid of the future in Germany, everybody should remain reassured, because Germany is a constitutional state. The laws are protecting everybody here and always will
Whatever the AfD gains or loses, the German values are always gonna win.
