Germany: MP accused of making anti-Semitic, racist videos for far-right group

Via Politico:
A senior member of the Alternative for Germany party is accused of having produced anti-Semitic and racist videos for a radical far-right group.

According to the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung, Peter Felser, a member of the Bundestag and one of the AfD’s parliamentary party deputies, is an owner of a production company called wk&f Kommunikation which, from 2001 to 2003, made campaign films for the extreme-right Republikaner (Republicans) party.

The Republikaner party has in the past been monitored by German intelligence services because of extreme views, FAZ reported.

The videos produced by Felser’s firm were banned. A German court found that one of the video clips was “endorsing, denying or downplaying the Holocaust,” Spiegel reported.

Felser told Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung he regretted the films, and agreed that “indeed, they could be understood as a denial of the Holocaust.”
