Greens leader Ricarda Lang and several party colleagues were confronted with accusations of double standards.
The trigger is a picture from the Oktoberfest.
Munich/Stuttgart - Politicians must always be careful how they appear in public.
Especially women like the Greens leader Ricarda Lang, who has long been declared an enemy by political opponents.
Because the 28-year-old is more often the focus of discussions on social media.
This time the trigger was a picture that shows Lang with other Green politicians, including Minister of State Claudia Roth, at the Oktoberfest, as reported by BW24.
In general, the accusation was that government politicians were having a good time despite the energy crisis, which not only upset right-wing trolls.

Ricarda Lang criticized for visiting the Oktoberfest: Jörg Kachelmann comments
The well-known weather expert Jörg Kachelmann, for example, tweeted: "I would never have thought that the inner potato is always, really always the dominant compass over the mind, which might have said to you in a brief lucid moment: Maybe not this year because it is the wrong and misleading signal. ”In the picture that Kachelmann commented on, Lang can be seen together with Roth, toasting with a pint of beer and smiling at the camera.
Another photo shows Lang with a Vesperplatte in front of him, on which you can see some sausage as well as bread.
This was criticized by a Twitter user who sarcastically wanted to draw attention to a supposed double standard of the Green politicians: "We shouldn't eat meat to protect the climate or optionally the animals."
And we should wear masks to protect ourselves and above all others.
Here you can see two representatives of the shortage of skilled workers working for the stupid people.”
Don Alphonso criticizes the Green double standards
World columnist Don Alphonso also spoke of “green double standards”.
He tweeted: "Between mountains of meat, beer tankards and corona viruses, top green politicians at the Oktoberfest are no different than everyone else - but they have to pay for green escapades such as gas levy and CO2 taxes."

Ricarda Lang makes it clear what she thinks of the hostilities
Lang recently made headlines after being booed at an event in Ellwangen.
More than a hundred people demonstrated there against the leader of the Greens, who wanted to bring the politics of the traffic light government closer to people from the Ostalb district.
The event is said to have even resulted in inflammatory statements.
Politician Lang reacted confidently to the hostilities and made it clear that "shouting down" opinions is not a democratic way.
