Sahra wagenknecht has taken over, dramatically miscalculated – and that will continue to be felt. It is only the first impact, the Left party leader at the weekend, draws from the first series of her and her husband, Oskar Lafontaine, initiated the collection of movement and the field of a supposed "Basis" leaves. On Monday, the second string followed: the group chair will submit in the fall, as they announced on the day exactly 20 years after her husband, Oskar Lafontaine, put the Offices of the SPD Chairman and Federal Finance Minister. Stress and Overload are called to justification.
Even if the car is insured servant, "to remain, of course," more politically active: she has 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.
As Oskar Lafontaine at the weekend, the withdrawal of his wife from the first series of "Stand up" - rated, he said: "Although we would be financially and organisationally helped, and we had results of a good survey, 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.More about

And now, relief in the Left after the double withdrawal? In the own party, the indulgence was wounds with wagenknecht. To the intra-party peace, the parliamentary group had called off in January, a revolt against their Chairman. The reservations Wagenknecht little decisions and program of the party, give a damn, and instead, as a lawyer of Wutbürgern acts, but passed. None of us wanted to imagine that the tips are turned, Left the good party soldier. Even now that is questionable. Well, that Wagenknecht sharpens well without the burden of top-of-the offices of your Talent for landscape shots.
