The leader of Germany’s Social Democrat Party (SPD) suggested banning the right-wing populist party, Alternative for Germany (AfD), due to concerns about its anti-democratic rhetoric.

The AfD has gained significant support in the polls, surpassing the SPD and becoming the most-supported single party in the country.

This rise has sparked discussions about potential bans and constitutional amendments to prevent the AfD from coming to power. (Trending: Fauci’s Ex-Boss Admits The Truth About COVID)

SPD leader Saskia Esken said, “Such a party ban is rightly subject to high hurdles. But I am convinced that we should keep reviewing it.”

“It is important that we talk about banning the AfD and that voters are shaken up,” she continued.

The party has faced accusations of right-wing extremism and pushback from the establishment, with some advocating for its ban based on claims that it opposes the country’s democratic order.

Stefan Möller, co-chairman of the AfD in Thuringia, said, “If you can’t win the election, you just have to change the rules. Left-wing extremists call this democracy.”
