“We can shoot and kill migrants, that’s also not an issue,” he said, according to the video. “Or we can give them gas, whatever you want, I don’t care.”
The party tweeted Luth “is no longer a member of AfD and has not spoken for the party since January 2018″. ”
FUD spokesman Baster Behrens said Luth was previously the party’s spokesman until 2018. In April, he was suspended as a spokesman for AfD’s parliamentary group, as he made other xenophobic remarks in social media chat groups.
After returning from summer vacation, the parliamentary group considered reinstating Luth as spokesperson.
But the video’s revelations about the exophobic comment put a stop to that. The parliamentary group, which always meets on Monday, immediately decided to let it go.
According to Behrens, Luth resigned as a party member according to his calculations.
