Sahra wagenknecht has taken over, dramatically miscalculated - and that will continue to be felt. It was not just the fact that the Left-Faction leader from the first series of her and her husband, Oskar Lafontaine, initiated the collection of movement and the field of a supposed "Basis" leaves.
no, rather: you lost the game with the opportunity to leave their own party and a new name, "" to lead up, Up. Because it was secretly always: "Stand up"-activists compete in elections. For Wagenknecht, the inner party was Drohpotenzial to impose their own Agenda - and that of your spouse, possibly.
rated As Oskar Lafontaine, now the withdrawal of his wife from the first series of "Stand up", he said: "Although we would have financial and organisational help, and we have good poll had results, we have the Urging of many members, for the European election, not give in, because we do not want any splitting of the left-wing camp." The polarizing politician is a servant of car, exactly for this splitting of the left-wing camp.
With hate-tirades against the SPD and the Green has raised again and again mistrust. And conciliatory words of her are not known even after the SPD emancipated careful of Gerhard Schröder and his Agenda 2010. With the #r2g-networks that we continue to pursue the Vision of a red-red-green coalition in the Federal government, had the most well-known Left politician never something in the hat.
collection movement - that was always the project of the old fighters Lafontaine. The Saar countries at odds for a while with the party, which he had lifted in 2005, together with Gregor Gysi of the baptism. As Lafontaine spoke in November 2017 with the "Saarbrücker Zeitung" for the first time publicly about the idea, he said, he sometimes, the question is whether he can make a difference within the SPD. "But that's spilled milk." Something New, to combine the collection's movement as a variant of the rather perverse Lafontaine-project, the SPD and the Left point once. Those who criticised Lafontaine for his plans, was scolded by him as a "moron".
"don't get Up," this is just an Ego-project of wagenknecht and Lafontaine. But also misleading in several respects. Firstly, because there were allegedly of 170,000 supporters never. Formally a member can be in the organization anyway no one. "Supporters", the people who have registered in a mailing list, because you wanted information and not always the same, because they sympathized with the Initiative. The actual performances, however, were rather miserably, as the sociologist and the protest presented, researchers Dieter Rucht.
movement? A euphemism
And movement? The dictionary defines: "politically, historically significant common (spiritual or philosophical) effort of a large group". For the Lafontaine-Wagenknecht-project a euphemism: From the top started "Stand up" was never a base Initiative. Among active politicians of the SPD and the Greens, the response was practically Zero. And in the left party, which had demonstrated by their front-woman, made the Initiative especially for Trouble.
the majority of the people who have signed the founding Manifesto, since the official launch of the Initiative, nothing more. On the website of the "Stand up" is the note that a "government program" should be created. "At the end of March, we want to merge the results together, in addition to the Internet voting, and finally, in the early summer at a Convention and broadly in the society to discuss." If it comes to that, is completely open - many activists feel Wagenknecht left in the lurch. Because of govern - "get Up" has not developed a strong Opposition.More about

In his own party to the Forbearance fades servant with the car. To the intra-party peace, the parliamentary group had called off in January, a revolt against their Chairman. The reservations, because the car gives a servant a little to the resolutions and program of the party, and instead, as a lawyer of Wutbürgern acts, continue to exist. Hard to imagine that the top Left mutated now to the good party soldier. Rather on the contrary: The failure of the project "get Up," leaving behind, you have to bear the conflicts, increasingly in the ranks of the party. The Left are more months of self-employment.
