        she has strong opposition inside the AFD
        which is not amused of her tone
        and the lifestyle she and
        her husband live
        inside the party, as if it’s their property.
        AFD has no great spraker and
        no great leader only
        a vision which
        once was the standard vision of the christ democrats whom
        merkel castrated and turned liberal.
