“Traitor” graffiti is sprayed on German politician’s house over his support of Germany’s insane refugee policy

As a local lawmaker in the east German city of Magdeburg who regularly speaks out against the far right, Soeren Herbst has endured years of animosity.

But the sight that greeted him outside his home last week made the Green Party politician realise that the abuse had reached a new level.

Someone had sprayed a gallows on the front of his house, along with Herbst’s name and the word ‘Volksverraeter’ – traitor to the German people.


Seems an apt description.

    More please!
    These politicians and activist must be made as uncomfortable as possible.

    • Maneki-neko

      This is the real backlash feared by liberals. No translation is needed for the hangman.

      • Very true.

          Invest in piano-wire futures.

            I won’t shed tears over the first wave that gets strung up. I’ll save them for the third, fifth and tenth waves. There’s always just one more classification of traitors, with increasingly flimsy justifications.

            We’ve let the left stigmatize us to the point where we consider this the only option. I keep thinking of the Germans of the 20s and 30s who, in their desperation, empowered the Nationalist Socialists. They thought they could tame the more thuggish elements, too.

            That’s my fear too, once the backlash starts many innocent who may have supported their cause to save the native culture & western civilization could face the gallows just because they’re not of right color or class, just like it happened during French Revolution.

            And hemp! The best rope is made from hemp.

          • andycanuck

            That will get the Libertarians onside at least.

      • Justin St.Denis

        One of the advantages of using “international signage” to make one’s point.

    • Exile1981

      It’s like the game, 10 letters somes name and the clue is traitor to germany

    • Sorry mister dip sh*t politician, you are a traitor.

      You should be uncomfortable.

    • John

      Yes a uncomfortable as possible. Tighten the screws until they start to think rationally for a change.

  • andycanuck

    It looks like a constituency office to me and not a private home. BTW, I have the tiniest violin in world playing in sympathy for him.

    • Justin St.Denis

      You should smash that tiny violin. It is possessed by djinns!

  • BillyHW

    And yet women keep voting for these treasonous bastards election after election after election.

  • Ron MacDonald

    The silent majority is beginning to fight back, the next year should prove interesting.

    • V10_Rob

      I just hope we can channel that backlash in a controlled and focused fashion.

      See all the college professors and ‘moderate’ leftists at Yale and elsewhere running scared from the monster they’ve created? The right has to resist that kind of cannibalism, but I remain pessimistic about our ability to hold it together. The animosity between certain factions of the right (and alt-right) eclipses any hatred they have for the left

  • Brett_McS

    The answer was I S L A M. The last clue was “murderous death cult”.

  • roccolore

    He IS a traitor for defending jihadists instead of the his own country.

  • Kathy Prendergast

    If that’s the worst “abuse” these traitors get, they should consider themselves lucky.By alienating their electorate they’ve bolstered the appeal of far-right politics to the mainstream. Things are going to get increasingly uglier. You can’t just forcefully impose a completely incompatible culture upon another one and expect there not to be extreme friction and extreme resentment. I’m reminded of the Swedish writer who fretted that there seemed now to be so much more racism in Sweden that there was when he was growing up in the 1960s. Well, duh, of course there was no racism then, because there were hardly any immigrants, and the few that were there mostly assimilated with no trouble and caused few problems. Unless you’re a complete dickhead It’s the easiest thing in the world not to be racist when all the people you meet from other races and cultures in your own country are well-behaved and respectful of your community’s customs and your country’s laws.

    • Justin St.Denis

      The Swedish brand of “clueless” is in a class all its own.

  • Yes these traitorous politicians need to remember how Mussolini and Ceausescu were lynched by the mob. One day soon the German people are likely to do the same to Merkel and her ilk.

    • UCSPanther

      Ceasescu’s demise was one of the best Christmas presents that the Romanian people have ever gotten…

      • Justin St.Denis

        I remember it to this day. I was particularly impressed by the airing of the execution 24/7 on Roumanian TV for several days while people partied and celebrated.

  • Xavier

    Defacing property to intimidate government officials is very bad form.

    One should never warn the target.

    • Justin St.Denis

      You are a crafty one!

  • Hard Little Machine

    Countdown to blaming it on ‘zionists’ in….5..4..3..
