Germany: Schulz accuses AfD leader of fascist tactics in fiery immigration debate

*MULTIPLE SHOTS AT SOURCE* Former leader of the Social Democratic Party (SPD) Martin Schulz lambasted co-leader of the far-right Alternative for Germany (AfD) Alexander Gauland and denounced Gauland's views as reminiscent of Nazism during a debate on immigration and far-right violence that took place in the Bundestag on Wednesday. «The reduction of complex political situations to one single... Еще subject, as a rule about minority groups in the country, is a traditional method of fascism. We heard this again today... The immigrants are to blame for everything. We have heard similar words in this house once before,» Schulz said, referring to Hitler speaking in the Reichstag. Schulz's comments came in response to Gauland's earlier speech, in which he claimed that participants in the anti-migrant protests in Chemnitz had been vilified and the majority were concerned citizens who were sick of migrant crimes. German Chancellor Angela Merkel also responded to Gauland's speech, stressing that there is no excuse for racist and xenophobic attacks. Thousands marched in Chemnitz in late August to protest the alleged murder of a 35-year old German-Cuban man by two Middle-eastern migrants. Protests devolved into violence as far-right protesters were filmed chasing and attacking foreigners, and were seen performing the Nazi salute.
