Christian Lindner appears at the farmers' protest in Berlin and wants to appease the demonstrators.

A scandalous speech for the leader of the Left.

Berlin – Christian Lindner really tried hard to make himself heard in the freezing cold in front of the Brandenburg Gate.

It wasn't easy, despite several microphones and all sorts of speakers.

Because the thousands of farmers to whom the FDP leader and finance minister spoke made a lot of noise.

They trumpeted and whistled, booed and cursed towards the stage.

Finance Minister Lindner at the farmers' protest: “I have a feeling for your situation”

Lindner had to raise his voice even more clearly than usual at the final farmers' protest because he wanted to get his message across.

On the one hand, show understanding for the dissatisfaction of farmers as a result of the traffic light's planned abolition of subsidies for agricultural diesel, and on the other hand, promote understanding for the political decisions that have an impact on your wallet.

Between the protesters' shouts of "liar", "hypocrite" and "go away", he tried to create a bit of closeness.

“After many conversations, I have a feeling for your situation,” Lindner said.

Likewise: “I want politicians to trust the farmers instead of trying to interfere with the businesses.” He himself comes “from the Bergisches Land.

I grew up next to meadows, fields and the forest.”

Lindner speaks to farmers in Berlin: criticism of climate activists and recipients of citizens' money

But Lindner was not successful as a bridge builder.

What stuck the day after the memorable performance were other sentences.

Like the comparison with the climate activists of the “Last Generation”: “What a difference between the farmers and the climate gluers: The climate gluers smeared the Brandenburg Gate.

The farmers have honored the Brandenburg Gate.” A bit of belly brushing from the highest authorities.

He also shouted to the masses: “It annoys me that I have to talk to you, the hard-working middle class, about cuts, while on the other side in our country people are getting money for doing nothing.” A frosty greeting to the recipients of citizens’ benefits.

“Social reforms are difficult.

But we have to work on that too,” Lindner added: “That’s why we’re cutting benefits for asylum seekers and that’s why we’re saving a billion euros in citizens’ money.

Because we can no longer tolerate it when people refuse to work for their money.” This is not just “a question of money, it is a question of justice and we answer it”.

Wissler criticizes Lindner for his speech: “Politically irresponsible and humanly disgusting”

It remains to be seen whether these words got caught up in the crowd.

In any case, Janine Wissler listened carefully.

And is outraged.

"A federal minister who stands in front of protesting farmers and doesn't make a single proposal about their concerns, but instead agitates against the unemployed and refugees ("money for doing nothing"), is not only rightly booed, he is intolerable as a minister," criticized the left-wing leader in the



Lindner is leading a diversionary debate and trying to play people off against each other and incite them.

This is “politically irresponsible and humanly disgusting.”

For her, the speech is another low point: “As with the rejection of climate money, Lindner is targeting benefit recipients.”

The postponement of this support because of the additional burdens on citizens is already being discussed controversially.

Katharina Dröge, co-chair of the Green Party parliamentary group, said: “We need the climate money.” Ramona Pop, board member of the Federal Association of Consumer Organizations, made it clear in the
