“Not considered anti-Semitic”: Lacet takes party colleagues under the protection of the masses – Politics

CDU leader Armin Lacet has defended Hans-George Massen, the controversial Bundestag candidate within the party, from the anti-Semitic accusation of climate activist Louisa Newbury.

“I do not yet perceive him as an anti-Semitic,” the party leader said on Monday at the Prospect Special. Newbury accused the former head of the Office for the Defense of the Constitution of spreading anti-Semitic content. As evidence, he cited Mason repeatedly using complex terms such as “globalists” on his Twitter profile.

Lacet said anyone who uses the word “anti-Semitism domestically” will be denied. This is what Newbury said. “Also, I think the receipts that came in were not enough.”

The CDU leader stressed: “If you make such a serious accusation – especially these days we are experiencing real anti-Semitism – you need evidence other than linguistics like this.”

Monten Pundestock was elected candidate by representatives of the four CDU district associations in South Thuringia. Massen is controversial because of his position on the federal government’s refugee policy. Social Democrats, Greens and left-wing politicians have accused the CDU of fishing. There was also massive criticism from the CDU and CSU teams.

Lacet was asked on Monday evening on the “Prospect Special” program about the FDP’s demand in its election manifesto to limit the term of office of federal presidents.

“The term of office is short because after four years the voter says whether he wants the chancellor or not,” said the CDU and CSU presidential candidate. Lacet insisted that proposing a limit for two terms – this is what the FDP demands – would “restrict a citizen’s decision-making rights”. “If a citizen believes that a president should be 16 years old, he should be 16 years old.” (dpa)
