AfD in the Hessian Parliament: propagandist of a culture of fear

The AfD, use your representative office in the Hessian Parliament quite cleverly, and often only at second glance, in order to make the established political System in question, to bring into disrepute, and under justification pressure. This is the conclusion of a study of the Marburger education researcher Benno Hafeneger and his local colleague Hannah Jestädt, which appeared in the Frankfurter wochenschau-Verlag ("The AfD in the Hessian Parliament – a new style of politics and its effects"). In order to reach your goal, set the AfD group to openly or subtly ideologically formulated, with insinuations, defamation and scandal authorizations related questions and requests, which should provoke and unsettle.

an above-average amount consent (15.7 percent) received the AfD in the Landtag election of people between the ages of 35 and 59 years. In the Eighteen - to twenty-four years she remained behind with nine percent, however, considerably behind your overall result. During the party, the section, among the voters with higher education is relatively poor, it was in the case of workers particularly successful. With 23 percent of the work, the AfD was voices in the SPD and the CDU.

in Total, he added, the AfD party and a group peak in the state of Hesse so far, to integrate the different currents and the party majority to give "a more right-conservative/populist profile". The authors of the study classify the Hessian AfD-landesverband as rather moderate, however, all the currents of the party belonged to him, even the people's "wings", which has dissolved in the meantime.
