The CDU man Friedrich Merz, who was never averse to heavy artillery, gave it a full one at the TV carnival. In principle, she's right: "Witness knows no bounds, wittiness knows no quarter" - such a Schunkelgesang. Now the humor is central to the whole thing. And there you have to reprimand the liberals dressed up as the evil queen from Snow White. She did badly. She didn't pay attention to the primacy of humor.
The "old white man" Merz was "completely mean at heart," she said. As soon as children were named Ali and not Sascha, he berated them as “little pashas”. But do it a "Nazi prince too wild, then the flying dwarf suddenly becomes mild". Merz, sitting in the audience as if rolled over by a tank, is characterized by the fact that he "thrashes the weak courageously because he likes to fish in the dark".
That would be completely clear as a left-wing populist riot speech in the Bundestag, but for Bütt it's a bit little; especially a little bit of joke.

Let's be honest: humor is not a master from Germany, and nowhere is this more depressing than at carnival, this high mass of the Biedermeier period. When politicians get into the Bütt with cramped relaxation in order to "show their relaxed side" in a very close manner to the people, every sensitive person can only expect extreme embarrassment - and will never be disappointed.
With her speech, Strack-Zimmermann certainly did not cross any borders, but rather delivered as ordered: clumsy, populist and point-free. It is also not good for excitement because the discourse itself in the Bundestag is often only slightly more civil.
The outrage of many liberal viewers is more likely to have something to do with the fact that the FDP politician throws herself at the left-wing zeitgeist in her lecture like a Funkemariechen after the tenth Kölsch.
If that is to be the new sound of the FDP, however, the laughter should also get stuck in the throat at the latest in the next elections.
