    Exclamation Graphic: Chairman Of Germany's Far-Right Party Brutally Beaten Within Inch Of His Life

    Frank Magnitz, Chairman of Germany's right-wing AfD party, was beaten within an inch of his life on Monday by three men as he left a New Year's reception, according to the AfD Bremen Facebook page, which adds that he was knocked unconscious with a wooden board and repeatedly kicked in the head.

    The attack on Magnitz was stopped after the "courageous" intervention of a construction worker, according to the Facebook post. The AfD Chairman is currently in the hospital with serious injuries, as well as police protection since the incident has been ruled to be politically motivated.
    While the attackers have not been identified, AfD notes in its Facebook post that both the Left and Germany's Social Democratic Party (SPD) support Antifa and its attacks, and asks rhetorically "Is this what the other political parties want?"
    "Again and again, the AfD is the focus of left-wing attacks that are not condemned or even supported by the other parties," reads the post. "Today is a black day for democracy in Germany."

    I fixed it, it should have said "Assassination attempt" but that didn't fit.

    Frank Magnitz attack: Video casts doubts on AfD account


    Police have released a video of an assault on German far-right MP Frank Magnitz, after prosecutors disputed his party's account of what happened.

    Mr Magnitz, the head of Alternative for Germany (AfD) in Bremen, was attacked by three men in the centre of the northern city on Monday.

    AfD officials said initially he was knocked unconscious with a piece of wood and kicked on the ground.

    But prosecutors said the footage of the assault suggested a different story.

    On the video there is no sign of a wooden object or of Mr Magnitz being kicked.

    Frank Passade, spokesman for the public prosecutor's office, had said earlier that the footage showed Mr Magnitz likely sustained his head injuries when he hit the ground, and not from being kicked on the ground.

    It is clear from the video that he had his hands in his pockets seconds before the attack took place.

    The video was made public after a Bremen court ordered its release as part of an investigation into the assault.

    What happened in Bremen?
    Mr Magnitz, 66, had just left a new year reception in Bremen's Kunsthalle art museum when he was attacked in the city's Goetheplatz as he walked to a central car park.

    Mr Magnitz said he could not remember the attack. He has since checked himself out of the hospital.

    The Bremen AfD party said he had been hit over the head with a piece of wood then kicked in the head. They said two local tradesmen ran to aid Mr Magnitz as his attackers kicked him on the ground.

    Police said initially that he had been hit on the head with an unknown object and suspected a politically motivated attack. After seeing the video they said no such object was used and the tradesmen had not witnessed the attack.

    Joint party leader Alice Weidel had described the incident as an "assassination attempt" while local officials in Bremen blamed "incitement" from the centre-left SPD and Green parties.

    Parties across the political divide condemned the assault.

    AfD later changed their account of the attack as the tradesmen had not seen the attack. However, they maintained a wooden object had been used.

    Mr Magnitz also conceded the attack may have been a mugging, after initially describing it as "a politically motivated assassination attempt".

    AfD Bremen politician Thomas JŁrgewitz told Berliner Morgenpost the party would describe the attack "a little differently" now, but said its initial communique was in line with what was known at the time.

    In this case "they" refers to anyone who wants someone killed, making it look like a robbery is just simply a smart move.
