Boiling emotions and Weidel and Gauland the answer was quite angry with the question of a journalist.
This one has Gauland ask how clear Anti-Semitism must, until he becomes nauseous. While Gauland was still struggling for the right answer, Weidel had already shot: "What is a stupid question." Gauland then angrily asked how the word "Judas' wages" was Brandner anti-Semitic: "Judas and Jews have nothing to do with each other (…). What nonsense is that," the party's spokesman said clearly. Weidel shot behind him: "This is a non-educational witness".
Background: Brandner has caused a scandal, among others, when he called the Federal Cross of Merit for singer Udo Lindenberg as "Judas' wages". However, criticism of Brandner's Tweet is not directed at the use of the word "Judaslohns" itself, but on the context that makes politicians so. The anti-Semitism accusations against Brandner later emerged from more of his tweets in connection with Halle's attacks (see below).

This time it is about the question of whether, or with whom, the AfD will now nachbesetzen the Brandners posting committee and whether the members of this party are "integers". Weidel was very annoyed: "Another stupid question". Gauland was somewhat like a statesman and said angrily, "We only have personalities with integrity – don't ask questions like that."

AfD, Brandner's man, chirped to stop Halle from being criticized – he was rowing again
Brandner was chosen because of his controversial comments on the Twitter Internet service for the Halle attacks and musician Udo Lindenberg. In a tweet to AfD's critical comments, Lindenberg Brandner has written: "Sure, why slobber against us should / drool." For this, MP provides a quote from a newspaper article to award Lindenberg with the Federal Cross of Merit and add the hashtag "#Judaslohn".
To Halle he shared a tweet read after Halle's extreme right-wing attack that politicians "relax" in front of the synagogue. This clearly alludes to the meeting of solidarity in front of Jewish places of worship. Brandner moved from this tweet after much criticism later.
Brandner himself sharply criticized the actions of other parties. "This is another low point for parliamentaryism in Germany, which is another low point for democracy in Germany," he said. He will continue his work at the Legal Affairs Committee. AFD parliamentary group leader Alexander Gauland called the election "a mixture of ignorance and supposition".
AfD politician chooses: Chairman Brandner's Legal Affairs Committee must leave
Updates from November 13 at 10:00 a.m. that Bundestag Legal Committee have controversial AfD MP Stephan Brandner choose as chairman. This is a one time process on the Internet 70 years of parliamentary history. The committee drew the consequences of several scandals that had triggered AfD politicians from Thuringia. Recently, he caused a commotion when he woke up nervousness the Federal Merit Cross awarding AfD-critical rock singer Udo Lindenberg with comments "Judaslohn" commented.
Previously, the 53-year-old lawyer already had with his reaction to the Halle terrorist attack with two people killed and several injured causing anger. The representatives of all the factions except the AfD finally declared Brandner could not be tolerated and called him resignation but he refused. Then they decide his electionafter the previous Bundestag Rules Committee stated that this was permitted based on very vague rules in force.
After the election: politician AfD Brandner criticizes others
Brandner now with The voices of all the factions except AfD recalled, as the deputy spokesman for the Union political group, Jan-Marco Luczak, announced. "Brandner's dismissal is a clear signal of hatred and hatred – we have finally restored the dignity of the office," he said.
German Bar Association (DAV) held Decelection to be inevitable. Its chief executive, Philipp Wendt, said before the decision of the German Press Agency committee: "It is not possible that these socially important laws and committees are represented by people who insult, defame and incite hatred towards certain parts of the population." It is inconceivable that Brandner will continue to lead the committee.
Brandner himself sharply criticized the actions of other parties. "This is another low point for parliamentaryism in Germany, which is another low point for democracy in Germany," he said on the sidelines of the committee meeting.
First registration starts November 13 at 9:00 a.m. that AFD has brought a sharper tone to the Bundestag. That's what all parties say and criticize. The Legal Committee must not be criticized. There must be AfD MP Brandner tilted as chairman. a one time process.
This will be an historical action that has never happened before: For the first time in 70 years of Bundestag history one of the committees will probably fire the chairman. The Legal Committee intends this Wednesday Cancel the selection of chairman Stephan Brandner – because deputies from all other parties find AfD men intolerable.
that Deputy Chairman of the SPD Faction Eva Högl In early November, he said: "Mr. Brandner does not have the human or political talent to lead the Legal Affairs Committee. He has repeatedly proven that." CDU / CSU, Green, FDP and Left Party members will sign this soon.
Stephan Brandner: Much more than just provoking
Has made up a lot. Brandner likes to provoke. Do it many AfD MPs. But the 53-year-old from Thuringia likes to fool him.
Example: When the Bundestag argued in May on the 70th anniversary of the Constitution, AfD lawmakers even attacked people sitting on the pulpit of Federal President Frank-Walter Steinmeier. The rule of law is increasingly "ignored, bent and kicked by others," Brandner complained. And that is on almost all levels. "Let's start at the top, at head of state"This is too much for Bundestag President Wolfgang Schäuble. He calls Brandner enough.
Moderation, other parties in the Legal Affairs Committee chair after Halle terrorist attack desirable with two dead and several injured. Brandner responded via Twitter to the ZDF interview where Jewish Public Relations Michel Friedman AfD accused "Hatred of Jews and Hatred of Humans" will find a "political home" with him. Brandner then tweeted: "Every minute this German Michel encourages us new fans in droves – go on! # PaoloPinkel #Koksnase #Twingerfunk."
Add to that retweet, with which Brandner conveys messages from other users. He has written that Halle's victims were "Germans who like to hear folk music" and "organic Germans". "Why do politicians get along with candles in mosques and synagogues?"
Stephen Brandner is not the first politician from the AfD to make a derailment. AfD Thuringia boss Björn Höcke agrees in the Bavarian Gredling song.
AfD politician, Brandner, has caused more and more scandal
The committee then openly opposed the chairman. Later, even though it was stated in the Bundestag, he apologized when people passed him Retweet "Attacked or treated badly". But that was not convincing from the point of view of the other committee members.
☀️On the day:
Will #Altparteien alone again today # Rules from #Bundestag| It was out of panic before #AfD feet and feet (par. 127, paragraph 1, sentence 2) and violated parliamentary law for more than 70 years?#Meinungsfreiheit #LexBrandner #Brandner pic.twitter.com/ynfYZwW4dc

Especially as Brandner shortly after the next scandal triggered. That previously was awarded the Federal Cross of Merit Rock singer Udo Lindenberg The AFD attacked sharply after the success of his election in Thuringia, making him tweet again: "Of course, why should we drool," Brandner wrote and pointed to the prize given in early October – combined with the word "Judas' wage".
As such, the size is full for other groups on the Legal Committee. You see Brandner as a kind of double actor with a poor social prognosis because of the risk of permanent recurrence. However, how to get rid of it? The Rules of the Bundestag Procedure remain vague on this issue. In paragraph 58 it says only: "The committee determines their chair and representative according to the agreement in the Council of Elders." However, the Rules Committee decided last week that this also allows for withdrawals. That must be done now.
And Brandner? He saw himself in become a victim: Allegations that the term "Judas' wages" arouse anti-Semitic associations and their use violates the dignity of the Bundestag, "drawn by hair" and "unreasonable".
