Stuttgarter Nachrichten: Commentary on Meuthen’s withdrawal from the AfD

By turning his back on the AfD, Jörg Meuthen is trying to do two things: On the one hand, he wants to harm his opponents. Because what he says about the radicalization of the AfD will be heard with interest by the Office for the Protection of the Constitution and a court that will decide on the observation in March.

On the other hand, the university teacher tries to save his reputation and present himself as moderate. One should not believe that: it was Meuthen who, with his bourgeois demeanor, helped the radical wing to gain importance as long as it helped him to stay in power. Now the current has become so powerful that Meuthen no longer needs it. His farewell will hardly change the AfD. Interesting for the future course is who follows at the top next to co-boss Tino Chrupalla and how the AfD performs in the three upcoming elections in the west. There is much to suggest that both will support the party’s radical current.
