AfD local leader takes heat after calling ‘hero’ who tried to kill Hitler ‘traitor & coward’

An AfD local leader was lambasted on social media - and by his own party - after calling Claus von Stauffenberg, a man who lead a plot to assassinate Adolf Hitler a "coward" and a "traitor." ... In modern Germany, many regard Von Stauffenberg, one of the central figures of the German Resistance, as a hero. Yet Lars Steinke, the head of the youth wing of the Alternative for Germany (AfD) in Lower Saxony, countered that view in a blunt statement, saying for him the officer was "an enemy of the German nation" ... Steinke suggested that von Stauffenberg's actions actually represented "a shameful attempt of a coward" ... "Stauffenberg was a traitor who was ready to sacrifice millions of lives without any notable benefit for the German nation."
