The ÖVP calls on FPÖ leader Marlene Svazek to apologize to the police officers and to exclude Moseneder from the party. “The tolerance of right-wing extremist activities has been going too long and too far,” said ÖVP club chairman Nikolaus Stampfer.
“This act of violence is the culmination of a now endless series of right-wing extremist attacks,” said the Green Country Manager Simon Heilig-Hofbauer. The FPÖ must distance itself from the violence in its closest environment. “We demand clear words about this from state party woman Svazek,” emphasized Hofbauer.
Postings cause excitement
Moseneder had repeatedly caused outrage in the past. At the beginning of October, the Salzburg State Youth Council excluded him after he is said to have shared a picture on the Internet of right-wing extremists who are storming the pastoral office in Linz. In the previous week, a post caused excitement in which he had made the faces of two police officers unrecognizable during a corona demo with pig emojis. On Sunday, the chairman of the police union Gerhard Lerch also called for the Salzburg FPÖ to distance itself from Moseneder due to the two incidents.
