A German AFD MP had her Twitter account suspended and is now under Police investigation using their new Hate speech laws because she spoke out against the Muslim rapists and murderers that have been imported under Merkel’s government.

Beatrix von Storch, deputy leader of the party, had criticized Cologne police for sending out information in Arabic on Twitter.

“What the hell is going on with this country? Why is an official police site … tweeting in Arabic?” she wrote. “Did you mean to placate the barbaric, Muslim, gang-raping hordes of men?”

AFD’s leader supported her MP saying that we now live in a world where criticism of heinous acts and crimes are treated more severely than the crimes themselves.

[…] Cologne police told AFP their complaint alleges that the tweet flouted laws against incitement to hate.

Von Storch’s account was blocked by Twitter for 12 hours following her post, and the tweet has since been removed.

She posted the same comment on Facebook, which then also took it down, citing “incitement to hate (paragraph 130 of the German penal code)”.

Twitter and Facebook’s tough stance came as an anti-online hate speech law came into effect on January 1st in Germany.

Social media companies that fail to remove illegal inflammatory comments could face up to ?50 million ($60 million) in fines.

AfD chief Alexander Gauland took aim at the new rules, saying in remarks carried by national news agency DPA that the regulations are “Stasi methods that remind me of communist East Germany”.

Gauland, who is not active on social media, encouraged users of such websites to “keep publishing” the erased comments from von Storch.

The AFD won 92 parliamentary seats in the September elections. The impressive result was no doubt linked to the unhappiness of much of the population due to the unprecedented influx of more than one million Muslim migrants into Germany since 2015. The MSM describe them as a?far-right party for their Nationalism and their criticism of the fact that German women are no longer safe to walk the streets. Pointing out who is causing the crime is considered hate speech.

Tellingly when the story was covered by a reporter in the below clip she glossed over the rape and sexual abuse of at least 1000 German women that happened on New Year’s eve?a year ago. She called it “causing basic disruption on the streets.” Perhaps she was worried that if she told the truth she would be charged under the new hate speech laws. Note how she pauses and considers her words before calling it “basic disruption.”
