Chancellor candidate Baerbock is increasingly targeted by hate speech attacks | Free press


With her candidacy for the Greens candidate for chancellor, Annalena Baerbock is even more in the public eye than before. This also manifests itself in more hostility on the net.

Berlin (dpa) – Since her appointment as candidate Chancellor of the Greens, Annalena Baerbock and her party have been exposed to increasing hate attacks on the internet.

“Both Annalena Baerbock and Robert Habeck have been attacked online for a long time,” party spokeswoman Nicola Kabel told the editorial network Germany (RND / Friday). But since Annalena Baerbock was nominated, fake quotes and fake photos have gotten a boost. It started right away in the first few days. “

In the past two weeks alone, Green Party headquarters made 15 reports under the Network Enforcement Act. “If cases turn out to be criminally relevant, we bring them to the attention,” says Kabel. “Not everything automatically has a woman-unfriendly component; but it is added in some cases. “

According to information from the RND, alleged nude photos of Baerbock recently appeared, but in reality they do not show them, but a Russian model.
