A kindnnalena Baerbock rejected the plagiarism charge against her. When talking to a reporter from Brigitte magazine in Berlin on Thursday night, she said: “I haven’t written non-fiction books or anything, but I want to do something about this country-on the other hand, I have described the use of facts. And reality to understand the world”. You have made it clear that there is no copyright infringement in this book. You wrote this book to explain “who I am and what drives me,” Balbok said.
The Green Party firmly opposes allegations of plagiarism against its prime minister candidate. Federal Managing Director Michael Kellner announced the party line in Berlin on Tuesday. He wrote on Twitter: “Total solidarity with Annalena”. Hannah Neumann of the Ministry of Environmental Protection then described the allegations against the book published by Ullstein Verlag as “a dirty movement against Baerbock”, and Jürgen Trittin talked about the “dirty movement” reported by Bild. Reinhard Bütikofer, EU member of Parliament and former party chairman, spoke more sharply when talking about the “right-wing propaganda war” against Belbok. At the headquarters of the Berlin Green Party, people have also seen a similar situation. With the support of certain newspapers and magazines, some people on social networks talked about the new “quality” of election campaigns.
Chancellor of Baden-Württemberg Winfried Kreischmann FAZ said on Thursday that if core issues such as economic transformation caused by climate change, digitalization, or social cohesion after a pandemic are not the focus of controversy in the three months before the federal election, it will “distance” him. Baerbock has the skills and integrity to become a principal. Ludwig Hartmann, leader of the Green Party of the Bavarian State Parliament, told FAZ: “For me, the permanent attack on Annalena Baerbock is the most important thing: for our children and grandchildren to live a good life, our The panic transfer strategy of the green concept.”
Felix Banaszak, also the state chairman of the North Rhine-Westphalia Green Party, will be next because of a good list Bundestag It may belong to, speaking of “excessive movement”: “But if we argue more about a few paragraphs in the book than the urgency of the climate crisis and its social consequences, it is unrealistic.” The attacks in the past few days are reminiscent of The “extreme polarization” of the US election campaign. But the Green Party has also contributed to this: Oliver Christcher, the deputy leader of the Green Party in the Bundestag, accused the North Rhine-Westphalia government of hesitant climate policy to endanger Canadian lives. The country is currently suffering from extreme temperatures.
Obvious strategic shift
Compared with the earlier mistakes of the prime minister candidate, the Federal Green Party has implemented a strategic change. Belbok apologized many times for her first mistake, some of which were during prime time on television. Her unfortunate swearing at the Digital Federation Representative Conference after applying for a speech did not cause much sensation. In the current case, someone accused Baerbock of not studying her book as much as one would expect because of the applicant for the second highest position in the state. On the other hand, the Green Party responded harshly.When the news spread, the strategists at the party headquarters stood up Allegations of plagiarism Before the question of what kind of reaction they would use to hurt the already damaged prime minister: a series of new apologies or attacks on political opponents, implying that it was a “campaign.”
According to the Berlin Party leadership, contrary to discussions about extra income and Baerbock’s resume, there are now some allegations that are not legally applicable. “It is now a public signal that allegations of copyright infringement are untenable. This is why we have to work harder to respond.” Baerbock’s book is not a scientific work; the author is grateful for the numerous hints and tips provided during the writing of this book. help. The decision to write this book was made before the candidate for prime minister. “She wants to show where she is from and where she is going.” This book should not play an important role in the campaign.
However, in some parts of the party, discussions about the cause of Belbok’s election mistakes have already begun: it is said that the Green Party is a pseudo-giant after all. The party organization is too small to undertake such a large task. It was too late to register at the federal office, and there were differences between top candidates and prime minister candidates. If you impose power issues on a candidate for prime minister, then you must take into account more intense resistance.
Some people think that Baerbock and Robert Habeck’s principle of always clearly pointing out their mistakes is a weakness. If you say the smallest mistakes or even apologize for them, voters will feel that you have been making mistakes. The important thing now is to “optimize the ability to sit down.” In this regard, it is useless to dig out the mistakes or hasty mistakes of Amin Rashet, the candidate for the Federal Chancellor.
