This week’s Pegida-style AfD march in Erfurt was a bit underwhelming, but Björn Höcke had a much bigger stage when he appeared in a popular talk show. It was probably the first time that a national audience was exposed to the more radical streams within the AfD. It was also the first time that Frauke Petry, the new leader, semi-publicly criticised Höcke (in an email she sent to all party members) and asked (ordered?) the man whom her predecessor wanted to remove from the party to take down his rhetoric a few notches. Höcke’s patriotic platform (whose support was instrumental for Petry’s election) has now launched a counter attack. Time for another putsch?
