Bundestag Vice President Wolfgang Kubicki (FDP) demands that the proportionality in the Corona debate must come to the fore again.

“The constant alarmism has to end. It makes people crazy, ”he told the“ Passauer Neue Presse ”.

Commenting on the mass protests in Berlin, which triggered a debate about freedom of assembly because of non-compliance with the Corona rules, Kubicki said: “The right of assembly must not be restricted. People must continue to be able to make intensive use of it. ”He is of the opinion that the constitutional means are sufficient to ensure that the conditions are complied with. The FDP deputy warned: “You cannot declare 20.000 people to be 'Covidiotes' across the board. The political class must not give the impression that certain unpopular opinions should be suppressed here. That would be fatal. ”This is how you lose these people to extremists and restrict democratic discourse. “There is a constitutional requirement to endure nonsense. But there is no basic right to violence. ”Even if he did not share most of what was spread at the demonstrations, he could understand the discontent. "But that does not mean that the conditions do not have to be adhered to." Kubicki advised that in the Corona debate "leave the church in the village".
