Scandal on Twitter: CDU MP de Vries describes the Greens as modern antichrists. The taking down of the cross during the G7 summit is a denial of the Christian heritage of the Germans.

The CDU MP Christoph de Vries vented his anger via Twitter and described the Greens as “the modern Antichrists”.

Reason for his tweet: A cross was taken down during the G7 summit in Münster. According to de Vries, this is “the denial of the Christian heritage in Germany”. In addition, the “muezzin call in Cologne as a sign of diversity” is celebrated.

Baerbock said after the incident on Friday: “It was not a conscious decision, certainly not a political decision, but obviously an organizational decision”.
