Again there is excitement about a “head off” gesture and the AfD: Beatrix von Storch is the focus of a debate about alleged impending hand movements in the Bundestag.
Both the AfD deputy Beatrix von Storch as well as the SPD deputy Johannes Kahrs stood for alleged head-down gestures in the Bundestag this Wednesday in the criticism. Von Storch scandalized a gesture that was visibly different – and was then alleged by the SPD itself to have threatened.
SPD deputy Johannes Kahrs had handed out in his speech. “Right-wing extremists like you, they’re up to me!” He had said. At these words, he moved the flat hand back and forth at the neck level – actually clearly recognizable as an explanation that it was “up to his neck”.
That was a response to a statement by previous speaker Martin Renner of the AfD. He had said that the “contempt for one’s own” and “overemphasis on cultural diversity” lay “like” crematorium ashes over the household. “Are not you ashamed at all?”, Kahrs said in the direction of the AfD.
And there Beatrix von Storch was outraged. She repeated the gesture of Kahrs with excited shouts several times. She also later aired a video of the speech in which she too was seen. “Kahrs made a head-down gesture in our direction,” she tweeted.
This is reminiscent of Alice Weidel, who had broadcast a video in which she revolted about the threat of gestures of a supposed leftist listener. Later it came out that an AFD trailer had only had a coughing fit.
