CDU politician Friedrich Merz railed against Annalena Baerbock and the Greens. There is one topic in particular that does not seem to let go of him.
Berlin – In a recent tweet, CDU politician Friedrich Merz attacked the Greens sharply. The conservative wrote on Twitter: “A green ‘Immigration Ministry’ should invite as many immigrants as possible to Germany regardless of their ability to integrate.” Previously, a polarizing proposal by the Green Chancellor candidate Annalena Baerbock and her party had become known. Issues related to equality and social participation should therefore be bundled in a separate ministry in the future. “To this end, we will separate the tasks of the immigration society from the Ministry of the Interior,” says the election manifesto. Merz is apparently a thorn in the eye.
But not only that. The CDU hopefuls also raised his spear against gender in the federal election campaign. “The #gender language should be forced on all of us and the country should be covered with new rules of conduct, taxes and duties,” he accused the party. For the Federal Managing Director of the Greens, Michael Kellner, Merz ‘allegations are “pretty pulled by the hair”. That’s what the politician told him Editorial network Germany (RND) on Saturday. “I would like Friedrich Merz to try it with his own suggestions – then we’d like to argue about it.”

Others join the criticism. The Deputy Greens leader Ricarda Lang tweeted: “For the Union, people with a migration history are only part of this society when it is right, as soon as things go badly, they are instrumentalized as an enemy.” And Greens politician and photojournalist Erik Marquardt noted , Merz talks more about gender stars than the entire green parliamentary group – and ironically drew parallels to the US conspiracy story of the right-wing extremist QAnon movement:
Incidentally, a green immigration ministry will lock all children in the ministry basement to bake muffins from their blood, with which we want to attract aliens who are supposed to wipe out all of humanity in a slow and torturous process#pain https://t.co/C1H8eXUTIP

CDU General Secretary Paul Ziemiak had already rejected the idea of a ministry for immigration issues *. “We don’t need a green multi-cultural ministry in which left-wing activists implement their agenda. We have to organize and manage migration effectively, ”commented Ziemiak on Twitter. (aka with material from dpa) * Merkur.de is an offer from IPPEN.MEDIA.
