    German far-right AfD politician resigns after converting to Islam

    The far-right, anti-Islam Alternative for Germany (AfD) party on Tuesday confirmed reports in the German media that one of its politicians, Arthur Wagner, has converted to Islam.

    Wagner, a leading AfD member in the eastern German state of Brandenburg, resigned his position on the party's national executive committee on Jan. 11 for personal reasons, AfD spokesman Daniel Friese said.

    "The party has no problem with that," added Friese.

    He insisted the AfD's national party included groups representing the interests of Muslims, as well as Christians and homosexuals.

    Wagner, a German of Russian origin, had been a representative of the AfD since 2015. He was a member of the state committee with responsibility for churches and religious communities.

    Before joining the anti-Islam, anti-immigration party, he was a member of German Chancellor Angela Merkel's Christian Democrats (CDU).

    Wagner refused to answer questions from the German daily newspaper Tagesspiegel, who first reported his conversion to the Islamic faith.

    "That's my private business," he told the newspaper. But he said there had been no attempt by the party to force him to resign.


    The AfD entered Germany's national parliament, the Bundestag, for the first time following September's national election — becoming the third largest party.

    Support for the party surged after Germany admitted more than 1.5 million refugees and migrants in 2015 and 2016 at the height of the European migration crisis.

    The AfD argued that the country was under threat of "Islamization" and demanded stricter border controls to stem the number of newcomers arriving from war-torn and poverty-stricken countries in Africa and the Middle East.

    Wagner is not the first far-right politician to convert to Islam, according to the German daily Die Welt.

    Arnoud van Doorn was asked to leave Dutch far-right politician Geert Wilders‘ Freedom Party (PVV). It later emerged he had taken up the Muslim faith and traveled to Saudi Arabia to perform the Haj (a pilgrimage to Mecca), the Guardian reported.

The Nazis did have a fatal flaw, they believed in the British propaganda theory that they were Aryans and had invaded North India thousands of years ago and established the Hindoo religion and advanced culture and knowledge. But this is absolutely preposterous as the North European races were so barbaric they had no written language until relatively recently after the Dark Ages. In the West from Britain to Poland they adopted the Latin alphabet and further East the Greek. The Aryans were in todays name Iranians and not Germans or English at all.
    Are you really defending Nazis?? Ya Allah im shocked

    In the US and Europe, Muslim groups have cooperated with, and in some cases formally allied themselves with secular leftist groups, Marxists, and Zionists in order to overthrow conservative governments, or work against right-wing politicians, etc.

    Doing this results in:

    1. A cancerous, irrationalist, and atheistic ideology being injected into the mosques and Muslim community centers.
    2. Muslims being exposed to the degeneracy of the left: we see in the US Muslim "community leaders" marching alongside transexuals, pornographers, Communists, and Zionists. How is this permissible?
    3. An eventual leftist takeover of current governments, which will lead them to quickly disenfranchise their former Muslim allies. Once Muslims have been used as patsies, the socialists will turn on them.

    I would ask any Muslim who thinks cooperation with Communists is a good idea how it worked out in places like Bulgaria, Yugoslavia, or the former Soviet Union? Muslims were routinely persecuted in the eastern block, mosques were closed or burned, etc.

    Muslims should work towards forming their own political organizations and parties, and their own social networks.
    Hmm this is an interesting perspective. If you mean Muslim immigrants being co-opted by leftist or liberals then yes but that is the same with all immigrants. Immigrants tend to suffer lack of sympathy empathy or under understanding from the Right Wing/Conservatives/ Nationalists so they tend to gravitate towards parties or groups that will at least tolerate and even accept them, so it sometimes leads to strange alliances. When your young your attracted to the idealistic slogans wanting a fairer and better society and many of them seem (and are) very sincere.

    Being strangers in a strange land many don't understand the intricacies of European politics, history, culture so its a very steep learning curve.

    (For instance took me a long time to realise that Christendom began its collapse 500 years ago during the reformation. Or that the French revolution and Bolshevik revolution were attempts with varying degrees of success to de Christianise the society.)

    After a while though I began to look into some 'right wing' perspectives and 'reactionary' history, politics, culture. I was quite surprised by what I discovered. It forced me to reconsider some of my opinions. For instance it seems foolish in retrospect but I didn’t even consider the possibility that (for want of a better term) ‘white’ people suffer prejudice and racism. Or how the politics of victimhood is a dead end or the nature of economics and so on and so forth.

    For instance I found this viewpoint on modernity quite enlightening.



    Or how the Left has abandoned its raison d'etre and has submitted to the ruling classes.



    I think what the ruling liberal/leftists were expecting us to abandon our faith and secularise ourselves out of existence. In the UK this hasn't panned out, the ruling classes have become frustrated and have launched a prevent campaign to try and 'convert' us.

    "He insisted the AfD's national party included groups representing the interests of Muslims, as well as Christians and homosexuals".
    This isn't far right. Why do they call it a far right party? A far right German party would not allow Arthur to join because of his race. Homosexuals would not be tolerated either and Muslims would have to be blue eyed Germans. The far right believe in Europe for Europeans, Asia for Asians, Africa for Africans and so on. Where as the far left in complete contrast believe in destroying all races by the means of mass immigration policies and the promotion of degenerate behaviour like pop culture, miscegenation, feminism and the so called LGBT etc.
    Is Germany a basket case?
    Why do you always have to go on about people not looking like a certain race etc? I dont think all germanic folk look the same either.
