The Greens top has gone a long way to the statement made by the Prime Minister Baden-Württemberg Kretschmann. He described a group of young refugees as "male gangs". In this case the leadership gave him the right.
The leadership of the Green Party welcomed the encouragement by the Prime Minister of Baden-Württemberg, Winfried Kretschmann to groups of criminal refugees on this issue, but criticized his choice of words. "I will say it in another way, but in this matter Kretschmann emphasizes, what Greenland has a long fight," said party leader Annalena Baerbock. "Nothing at all" can justify violence against women, even traumatic escape experiences.
The green prime minister has spoken out to guard "youth gangs" among refugees outside the city for security reasons. "You have to separate them and it may also be seen that you bring people out of the big cities," Kretschmann said with "Heilbronner's voice" and "Mannheimer's morning". "Simply put, the most dangerous thing that human evolution produces is a mob of young men."
"This is not our language," said Green Party CEO Michael Kellner on the sidelines of the Green Party congress in Leipzig. He did not know this was "radical language" even from Kretschmann. Kellner also stressed, however, that Kretschmann stressed with his statement that the Green Party was not to the anchor centers planned by the Federal Government, where refugees without perspectives to live must go through all their asylum procedures.
The parliamentary leader of the Green Party in the Bundestag, Anton Hofreiter, criticized Kretschmann's choice of words too. "Someone must pay special attention to sensitive language problems," he told the Phoenix broadcaster. "Even though I found the language problematic, Winfried Kretschmann explained it briefly, why Seehofer's Interior Minister and CDU / CSU anchor centers are not only inhuman, but also lead to security issues."
The background of Kretschmann's comments was the case of an 18-year-old student at Freiburg, who was said to have been raped after a disco visit by several men. Eight suspects were in custody – seven Syrians aged 19 to 29 years and a 25-year-old German.
