AfD-politician Bjoern Hoecke calls Holocaust monument in Berlin a memorial of Shame

German fury at AfD Hoecke's Holocaust memorial remark

A leader of Germany's right-wing AfD has provoked outrage for condemning the Holocaust memorial in Berlin.
Bjoern Hoecke, who heads Alternative for Germany in the eastern state of Thuringia, is notorious for incendiary remarks on refugees and race.
He told supporters that Germans were the "only people in the world who planted a memorial of disgrace in the heart of their capital".
One politician accused him of incitement.
Ralf Stegner, a leading figure in the centre-left Social Democrats, tweeted: "Hoecke gives inflammatory speech, wants to rewrite history". Mr Stegner then demanded "no influence for the Neo-nazi mob!"
Thuringia's state Prime Minister, Bodo Ramelow, said it was not the first time the AfD leader had used "Nazi language".
The AfD started out as a Eurosceptic party but has quickly moved to the right and made rapid strides in regional elections in Germany. Its national leader, Frauke Petry, said last year that police should shoot at migrants entering the country illegally.
The party is expected to pick up seats in federal elections, which will take place on 24 September. Latest opinion polls suggest the AfD attracts at least 11% support among German voters.

Some 200 protesters gathered outside the hall in Dresden where the AfD leader was speaking to party supporters on Tuesday night.
He was given a standing ovation as he began his address and was applauded when he targeted the memorial of 2,711 stone slabs, which opened in 2005 and commemorates the six million Jews of Europe murdered by the Nazi regime.
He spoke of the German state of mind until now as of a "brutally defeated people" and Germany needed a "180-degree turn'' when remembering its past.

Instead of teaching Germany's schoolchildren about the country's world-renowned philosophers, musicians and inventors, of which he suggested Germany had more than any other people, German history was being made "lousy and ridiculous", he complained.
To audience chants of "Merkel must go!" he likened the German chancellor to East Germany's last Communist leader Erich Honecker.
'True face of AfD'
Green party chairman Simone Peter condemned his speech as "unspeakable". "The AfD must unequivocally distance itself from this and apologise to our Jewish friends."

The chairman of Germany's Central Council of Jews, Josef Schuster, said that the party had "shown its true face with these anti-Semitic and utterly inhuman words".
Some politicians pointed out that the AfD leader had given his speech hours after Germany's Constitutional Court decided against imposing a ban on the far-right NPD party, arguing that it was not a threat to the country's democracy.
There was some criticism from within Bjoern Hoecke's own party. Marcus Pretzell, the husband of national leader Frauke Petry, said he had shown considerable ignorance about the Nazi era.
The AfD is due to host a conference in Germany at the weekend that includes right-wing and far-right European leaders. Mr Pretzell, himself an AfD regional chairman, wrote on Facebook (in German) that the world was watching the party and it still had a lot to learn.

The "Holocaust Memorial" in Berlin is simply a shaming device. Something the "elites" in Germany want to use to keep their own people in psychological bondage. Bjoern Hoecke touched only slightly on the issue, and the vicious responses and aggressive reaction do actually prove him right.

He seems to fully believe in the orthodox holocast narrative (at least pretend to). He is just critical, or takes notion, of the concrete-ization of central Berlin, with a "football aka soccer-field sized" concrete block memorial of shame.

He also quotes a german jew who has said that Germany can't forever live in shame.

And he refers to a Bundestag document, where holocaust memorials are called "..Denkmäler der Schande.." ie. "memorials of shame".

No chance that someday the Berlin reminder of the German duty to pay and bleed for Israel's security and well-being, will be removed with such swindlers in charge...

I fully understand that he won't outright dispute the Holocaust in a public speech, given that "Holocaust Denial" would land him in jail in Germany. But there is no way that he isn't aware that the Holocaust is a self-serving atrocity propaganda scam. I say this in the light of him having displayed vast knowledge on German and World War Two history, some appeared to have come from Revisionist sources.

A common argument from Germans is, that those that don't believe or don't care about the Holocaust can just ignore the Holocaust Remembrance. They seem to forget that this is publicly institutionalized at the expense of the tax payers money. And it's frequently all over the media. German pupils will also be confronted with this several times during their compulsory time in school (which is ten years in Germany). That makes the whole thing a public matter, so people have the right to protest and criticize it in the strongest terms. Most don't as they are intimidated and debating it is emotionally draining (which is btw. also what one experiences when dealing with overtly aggressive people).

There is people from all walks of life that called it something like "memorial of shame". Well, that's it's obvious purpose: A shaming device. However MS-media and Politicians misrepresented Hoecke's statement as calling the monument a shame. He didn't, while it still would be accurate not only in the light of the Holocaust being fraudulent.

Hoecke is seen as "extreme right" in his party, which he isn't. But many of the members appear to be Holocaust believers and are scared shitless of the Nazi stamp. They are concerned that a Nazi-image would prevent people from voting for the party and they sort of have a point. But shouldn't that demonstrate to them that this is the more reason to defuse and debunk the Holocaust? I mean it isn't only an obstacle for them. It's also the root-cause of the present madness of replacement migration into Germany, which is what they're commonly against.
