Antifa Threatens to Kill 53 Populist German Politicians
'Let’s kill the AfD pigs with explosives,' a post read
Far-left Antifa extremists have called for the murder of 53 populist politicians in Germany, publishing their home addresses on a well-known far-left web platform.
The existence of the posts was confirmed by the German Federal Criminal Police Office (BKA), which were made on far-left web platform Indymedia
Several posts made on September 13th had called for violence against the populist party.
“Let’s kill the AfD pigs with explosives.”
A Google search cache also confirmed the existence of the posts on Indymedia via Breitbart.
But now, the articles have been either deleted or moved.
The call to murder the politicians also came in the form of a pamphlet that contained their home addresses.

One included a member of the Thuringia state parliament, Björn Höcke, and managing director of the AfD parliamentary group, Bernd Baumann.
“The time has come for tough action. Höcke is one of those people who has to be killed,” one specific call for violence on Indymedia said.
The death threats are now being investigated by police.
In 2019, an “assassination guide” was posted on Indymedia, which gave instructions on how to kill a member of the populist party, and told assassins to study public appearance dates.
Indymedia also came under investigation from German authorities in the past, with the website “Linksunten” being banned following the 2017 Hamburg G20 riots.
But militant extremists continued to use the platform despite the ban and took credit for attacks like the brutal assault on MP Frank Magnitz in January 2019.
