Armin Laschet and the CDU are criticized.
The reason is a new campaign film in which a lateral thinker can be seen.
The political opponent reacts decisively.
Berlin - The CDU published a new election commercial a few days before the federal election.
The official party channel shared an election campaign video on YouTube under the title "So that the direction is right: Both voices for CDU and CSU".
The political opponent is appalled.
Bundestag election: CDU advertises with Laschet talks with lateral thinkers
The reason is a scene from the clip in which Chancellor candidate Armin Laschet can be seen with the lateral thinker Thomas Brauner. The man broke a cordon at an election campaign event in Erfurt and rushed onto the stage to see Laschet. "First of all, first of all, secondly, ask questions," replied the CDU boss. Then the man even got the opportunity to ask a question *. He was concerned with the corona policy.
From the off, the voice in the campaign video says at the point that the CDU * is concerned: “First think, then talk - and also with those who have a critical attitude.
Yes, especially with them. ”Political opponents are now using the clip to attack Laschet and the CDU.
After the event in Erfurt, Karl Lauterbach, for example, criticized Laschet for not maintaining the required corona distance.
Now the SPD health politician is following up.
That stunned, @CDU: @ArminLaschet is campaigning with the #Querdenker #ThomasBrauner, who even maintains contacts in the neo-Nazi milieu - "just talk to those" who have a critical attitude ".

Bundestag election: criticism of CDU commercial - "Without decency, without attitude and without piety"
“Armin Laschet uses it to advertise that he allowed himself to be yelled at by a lateral thinker who was close to the Nazis and who threatened him. While local politicians and others need to be protected from such people. Citizen-oriented is different, "wrote Lauterbach on Twitter. He couldn't understand the commercial. The former SPD Federal Minister Katarina Barley said: “The bad thing is that the CDU knows exactly who it has included in its advertising film. They deliberately appeal to these so-called lateral thinkers. "
There was also criticism from other parties. The Green MP Janosch Dahmen wrote: On the same day that a citizen was murdered for enforcing the mask requirement in Idar-Oberstein, the CDU published a spot with a lateral thinker. This video is a mockery of all those who fight the virus with solidarity and commitment. ”The deputy party leader of the Left, Martina Renner, sums up:“ Without decency, without attitude and without piety. ”
Brauner appeared repeatedly at rallies during the corona pandemic *.
At an event in Würzburg, in connection with corona vaccinations, he spoke of the fact that “a Holocaust 2.0 should be implanted”.
On his Telegram channel, Brauner advertises the party Die Basis, which arose as part of the Corona protests.
The CDU has not yet commented on the clip.
A request to the party of Merkur.de is running.
