August 3rd Episode

I’m an American listening and I normally enjoy the balanced perspective I get from this show, but August 3rd saw people talk about the AfD slipping into “radical” racist rhetoric. They talk to protesters, including a queer person. I think it’s incredibly inappropriate for a German news service to pretend that these far-right positions are “radical”. The r word i’d use is “reactionary.” We literally fought a world war over this, and i think something is missing to truly label this episode as balanced. Why exactly did they talk to a queer person and then not explain why a queer person would be concerned? Deutsche Welle, you can’t hide from the war crimes and crimes against humanity committed in the 30s and 40s to a number of groups in society, including queer folks

Reporting straight from the left, and they don’t even hide it any more. Sad.
