Merkel praises honorary officials and is thrown with tomatoes

Wednesday, September 6th, 2017 | World News

The political mood has become rudder since the refugee famine. Even the Chancellor has already felt this in the performance. In the election campaign it is now a step further.

Federal Chancellor Angela Merkel (CDU) has been thrown with two tomatoes during an election campaign in Heidelberg. She was hit on the left hip by a few splashes. Also the presenter of the CDU-event got something.

Chancellor reacted calmly
Merkel reacted calmly and handed the presenter a handkerchief. The incident occurred at the end of the event on the university campus. The Chancellor had already finished her speech.

Who is responsible for the litters was initially unclear. On the edge of the approximately 40-minute event, protesters tried to interfere with the appearance of talking and whistling. There were cries like "traitors", "hypocrites" and "liars" – terms as they are known by Merkel opponents from the environment of the xenophobic Pegida movement and the AfD. According to the organizers, Merkel's performance was about 3,000 people. They celebrated Merkel with much applause and partly standing.

The police confirmed two separate tomatoes in the direction of the stage. An investigation had been instituted on suspicion of attempted bodily injury and attempted damage to property, said a spokesman. There had also been minor clashes between opponents and supporters Merkel. The personal details were identified by six parties.

 "Recording of people no mistake"
After the litters, a security man took a transparent protective shield, which was not used. Claudia von Brauchitsch, who is also working for the CDU's own video recordings CDU.TV, is also the moderator of the Tomatenspritzern.

In her speech, the Chancellor praised the commitment of many people in the refugee crisis as a "great piece of humanitarian aid". "If we made a mistake, not in the reception of people, but that we did not pay attention that people in Jordan, Lebanon, Turkey and Syria had nothing to eat, they did not get any education and get into their hands of tugs and smugglers, because they neither knew nor knew, "she said. However, "2015 should not be repeated".

In the Diesel affair, Merkel called on the automobile companies to recover the damage they had suffered. "I want us to have clean diesel cars and automotives, but also the best electric cars and the best fuel cells in the world, and that's what we have to do," she said.

After the incident in the evening in Stuttgart, Merkel took part in a panel discussion. She was obviously wearing the same blazer as in Heidelberg.
