Stinkefinger incident

One memorable Moment was on the 12th of August 2016 in Salzgitter,[5] when Sigmar showed his Stinkefinger, that is, the Middle-Finger, to a Group of young, mostly masked, Protesters. One of the Protesters said to him: "Mensch, dein Vater hat sein Land geliebt. Und was tust du? Du zerstörst es. Ihr Kommunisten, Kulturmarxisten!" This means: "Man, your Father loved his land. And what do you do? You destroy it. You Communists, Culture-Marxists!" Then they can be heard chanting: "Wer hat uns verraten? Sozialdemokraten." This means: "Who has betrayed us? Social Democrats."[6] According to "Die Welt", Sigmar's Father "was his whole Life long a staunch national Socialist".[7] The Video of the Event appeared on the Facebook-Page of the Jungen Nationaldemokraten Braunschweig.[8]
