“You had the choice between extreme, extreme and the most extreme and you chose the most dangerous person,” said SPD parliamentary group leader Erik Stohn. The Brandenburg AfD wants to change the foundations of democracy, warned Stohn. "Only democrats can stop this dangerous AfD by not giving the AfD a vote," stressed Stohn.

Choice between “right and far right”

The leader of the Free Voters parliamentary group, Péter Vida, also said that the AfD had opted for the extreme position when choosing between “right and far right”. "If the AfD Brandenburg had ever intended to evade observation by the constitution protection and radicalization, it has now finally slammed this door," said Vida. "Berndt is a southpaw and agitator of the parliamentary group."

During the election, the star pianist Igor Levit and other artists demonstrated against the AfD with a piano concert under the motto "wings instead of wings" in front of the state parliament.

"We want to jingle stupidity and hatred from the world with bright wing tones", said the organizer and Brandenburg artist Rainer Opolka on Tuesday at the beginning of the concert on the Alter Markt in Potsdam.
