Alice Weidel is supposed to be the moderate face of the far-right Alternative for Germany (AfD) party. But newspaper Welt am Sonntag claims to have seen an email which shows her true face.The Welt am Sonntag reports that a former associate of Weidel’s forwarded them an email she sent to him in 2013, shortly before she joined the AfD, which was set up the same year.In the email Weidel reportedly wrote that “the reason that we are being overrun by culturally foreign races like Arabs, Sinti and Roma is that the middle class is being systematically destroyed by our leaders, who are enemies of the constitution.”In the reported email Weidel goes on to describe Chancellor Angela Merkel and her government as “pigs who are nothing other than puppets of the allied powers. It is their task to keep the German people down by creating civil war in urban areas by flooding them with foreigners.”Weidel is one of two lead candidates for the AfD in national elections which will be held on September 24th. While co-leader Alexander Gauland has been accused of racism on several occasions in the past, Weidel is seen as representing the more moderate, economically liberal wing of the party.
