The words of the German politician Hitler provoked a scandal

MOSCOW, 3 Jul — RIA Novosti. The leader of the German right-wing party “Alternative for Germany” Alexander Gauland accused of diminishing the crimes of Nazism after his comments about Hitler at a conference in Thuringia, the newspaper Bild.

Gauland said that Hitler and the Nazis — “a dark spot (the literal translation of the word Vogelschiss, which was used by the leader of the AfD “bird d****” — Approx.ed) for more than a thousand years of history is successful, Germany”, bearing in mind that in all other age Germany was a great country.

“Yes, we acknowledge our responsibility for 12 years… But we have a glorious history that, dear friends, lasted longer than 12 fucking years,” he added.

Words Gowland a perceived negatively. So, Annegret Kramp-Karrenbauer, General Secretary of the “Christian democratic Union” of Germany, said in an interview with Die Welt: “Fifty million died during the Second world war, during the Holocaust, during total war, and call it dark spots — this is such a slap in the face to the victims, it is an understatement to what happened in the name of Germany.”

The representative of the “Green” Katrin Goering-Eckardt called comments Gowland “slap in the face” for Holocaust survivors and their descendants.

The representative of the faction “Free democratic party” of Germany in the Bundestag Marco Bushman said in an interview with the media group Funke: “Any politician is intentionally trying to diminish the significance of the Nazi dictatorship and the Holocaust, makes it clear how sinister is his view on developments in Germany”.

Users in social networks also protested.

“The systematic destruction of more than six million Jews, Sinti and Roma and homosexuals — it’s not a dark spot. His brain is more in line with this term,” writes Dia Melartopaeus.

“If he looks like a Nazi, talks like Nazi, and behaves like a Nazi, it is likely that he was a Nazi,” writes about Howland R. Astlos.
