“Invite her to Eichsfeld and tell her then, what specific German culture is. She will never come back here, and we will then be able, thank God, to dump her off in Turkey.”
Özoguz had stated in a contribution to the “Tagesspiegel” in May that “a specific German culture is, beyond the language, simply not identifiable. (…) Globalisation and the pluralism of ways of life lead to a further diversification.”
Candidates of SPD, CDU and the current government condemned his statements on social media. The expression “jemanden entsorgen” is problematic because it can also mean “dispose of someone.” The CDU general secretary Peter Tauber called it “racism”, SPD lead candidate called the statement “disgusting”, while the Green MP Özcan Mutlu referred to Germany’s Nazi past: “in this country, his ideological comrades have already “dumped” people.”
A former presiding judge at the federal court of justice (Bundesgerichsthof) Thomas Fischer reported Gauland to the police for incitement to violence (Volksverhetzung), Der Spiegel reported on 10 September.

Weidel was not yet an AfD member in 2013, but started to get involved in its predecessor “alternative vote 2013.”
Die Welt am Sonntag, who received the email, has written statements that the email is real and written by Weidel.
The email also contains insults against the federal government:
“These pigs are nothing else than puppets of the winners of WW2 and have the task to keep the German people small by inducing molecular civil wars in the big towns through foreign infiltration (“Ueberfremdung”).”
The email alleges that the judicial authorities are corrupt through and through and that Germany is not a sovereign state:
“That Germany is not sovereign should be made clear through the disgusting fatalism in daily politics, for example our expropriation through the Euro bailouts, corrupt judiciary (German federal constitutional court).”
The AfD is on course to enter the Bundestag, polling between 8 and 11 per cent.
