I CARE - - Germany: New AfD Berlin senator: Nazi civilian killings were 'legal'

I CARE - - News - Internet Centre Anti Racism Europe - The AfD party admitted this week that one of their newest elected politicians was once part of an extremist group. And his Facebook posts reveal more about his troubling thoughts on the Nazis. 21/9/2016- One of the new members of Berlin’s state parliament from the Alternative for Germany (AfD) party used to be a member of the German Defence League - an extremist right-wing, anti-Islam group - the party confirmed on Monday. Kay Nerstheimer, who was elected to the parliament as a direct candidate for the eastern Lichtenberg district, had been a member of the group as recently as 2012, according to AfD regional chair Georg Pazderski. The German Defence League - styled after the English Defence League - declares that “Islam does not belong to Germany”, and says it will protect “our culture, values and traditions”. Pazderski claimed that Nerstheimer ended his activities with the group after it came under surveillance in 2013 by Germany’s domestic security agency, the Verfassungsschutz,. The Berlin party leader also said that the AfD would look into Nerstheimer’s past and would “find a solution”, though national party leader Frauke Petry would not say whether they would consider dismissing him from the party. But as the Süddeutsche Zeitung (SZ) reported on Tuesday, Nerstheimer’s extremist views did not start nor end with the German Defence League. Nerstheimer has repeatedly posted on Facebook in recent years messages glorifying the Nazi time, trivializing the acts of Nazi war criminals, and using certain phrases often espoused by the Third Reich.
