A far-right chairman of a German anti-immigrant party was almost beaten to death in a ‘politically motivated assassination attempt’. Bremen police said they believe the attack on Frank Magnitz, an MP in Germany’s national parliament who leads Alternative for Germany’s (AfD) local branch, was a ‘politically motivated act, given the victim’s work’. They called for witnesses to the attack, which took place early on Monday evening near a city theatre in Bremen, to come forward.

It was a peaceful beating and entirely justified because the man is apparently racist. I can't say that he's racist nor has he been jailed for any racial crimes in one of the most censored countries in Europe to boot. But trial by public opinion absolutely demands his life is forfeit.

And remember kids. Putin is an oppressor of his people. Never for get that!

:lol:
Glad to see it's been roundly condemned by his opponents in Germany.

You don't win people over to your cause by beating pension aged people with pieces of wood.

Putin has done a lot of damage to both Russia and Ukraine. Russia would be better of with another leader.

What’s your weird spin on it?
Well, basically we don't know. The police believe it was politically motivated, but they have no evidence for this, and the man himself has said he is not blaming anyone, as it could have been a robbery attempt, and he just doesn't know. No witnesses reported hearing anything said, so as it stands it is conjecture to say leftists attacked him.

That said, it is obviously what the police believe and with some reason, so may well be what happened. There have apparently been 8 attacks on members of his party (although I don't know to what degree of severity) and there does not appear to be anything robbed, so it makes sense.

But as always, people just make up their mind. This is no different than seeing people claim that those shouting "Nazi" at Anna Soubry were motivated by misogyny. It's pathetic that people of a certain viewpoint just decide they know the motive behind something before it is proven or there is any real evidence simply because it fits their view.

Oh...shouted at a woman. Must by a misogynist - SJW.
Oh...right wing man beaten. Must be ANTIFA - conservative.

People should look at evidence objectively. Nothing wrong with suspecting something is the case, but deciding you know before there is any real proof of a motive is ridiculous.

I knew that would be contentious. It's cool. You'll be pleased to know I didn't mean it quite like that (although I also won't hide my admiration that he gets things done and protects his country).

What I was getting at was the people doing this so silence this guy are no different than Putin imposing his will in Russian people. It was a little bit of "Hey why don't you guys oppressing this guy look in the mirror huh?" Type of remark.
