It was a speech, how to you a long time not to hear you at the AfD, and also not of Alexander Gauland. Quietly, insistently, imploringly and in moments almost imploringly of the party bat – and group-in-chief, the approximately 500 delegates in the Congress hall of Riesa, the thing with the exit of Germany from the European Union (EU), think again. The Federal Republic could impose, other than the United Kingdom, a “Land of the middle”, the other States, there is no “maximum requirements”. A “German exceptionalism” would be seen in the case of European partners, always sceptical, the consequences of a Dexits “may be unpredictable”. As Gauland ended, applaud almost all of the delegates standing.
protests and tough choice of Candidates for AfD-Europe meeting
The radicals ‘ request to leave within five years of the EU, if not completely unrealistic “demands for Reform”, the AfD could be enforced, found no majority. The Deadline is out of the paper, now should not be “a reasonable time” a “Dexit” found. So at some point in the distant future.
The AfD party, Alexander Gauland
The just-averted Drama from Riesa shows that, More than ever, the AfD party, Alexander Gauland. He is the only one who enjoys in the AfD on all of the wings away unassailable authority. Only Gauland can keep the right-wing populist construct, which he referred to as “fermented pile”, is still fairly together. Also Gauland dreams about how the whole AfD, a different EU, a more circuit-less together in a “Europe of Nations”. And this dream is the abolition of the EU Parliament, which led to the bizarre Situation that at the weekend, the AfD delegates for hours to each list, struggled for control of space for the Parliament, the would you like to see resolved.
However, Gauland was also decades in the CDU, he is, in spite of all the old radicalism, it is always a child of the old Federal Republic of Germany remained. To the old Federal Republic, but the legacy of Konrad Adenauer and Helmut Kohl. Both were great Europeans, both have pulled out of the historical catastrophe of the Nazi dictatorship, genocide and war, the doctrine that Germany’s future can only lie in the democratic West, and only in a close connection with Europe.
legacy of Adenauer and Kohl to vote
In Riesa was also this heritage to the vote, and for moments Gauland had to look into the abyss of self-isolation, nationalism, and great power aspiration, in the völkisch-nationalist wing of his party of Germany wants to lead. This was even the man in the Tweed jacket, has trivialized the crime against humanity of Nazism a few months ago as a “bird-shit” of the German history, too much.
competition for the AfD

play with fire, Play with the provocations and resentments, the full Break down of alleged taboos, and hands-bans – what Gauland has been involved with pleasure, comes now to its end. Now where it gets really serious when it comes to the place of Germany in the world in the next decades. The Gauland.
Long Gauland is the AfD will no longer cause the

Gauland, notwithstanding his again and again emerging, frightening rhetorical ruthlessness back in a historically highly educated man twitching in front of it. But the man is soon to be 78 years old. Long as he is able, the AfD no longer lead.
what comes to him, you can only have fear.
