Reaction to criticism of the demand for a Covid vaccination ban: Maaßen defends himself – and reports of his own vaccination damage – politics

The former President of the Office for the Protection of the Constitution, Hans-Georg Maaßen, defends himself against demands for his exclusion from the CDU.

In a letter to other party members, about which the online portal “The Pioneer” reported on Tuesday and which is also available to the German Press Agency, Maaßen defended that he had shared a video of a vaccination critic on the Internet.

He pointed out that he had suffered vaccine damage as a child: at the age of five he had to undergo emergency surgery after a vaccination, and a year later after a combination vaccination a second time.

Schleswig-Holstein’s Minister of Education, Karin Prien (CDU), called for Maaßen to be excluded from the CDU at the weekend. “Ça suffit” (It is enough), she wrote on Sunday evening on Twitter and explained to the RN, “I will work towards an exclusion procedure in the next meeting of the federal executive committee, but I hope that the party friends in Thuringia will take action by then” .

With this, Prien reacted to statements by Maassen, who had distributed a video by vaccination opponent Sucharit Bhakdi and who had advocated a “Covid vaccination ban”.

“If a former top official and constitutional protection officer spreads such conspiracy-theoretical nonsense and refers to the anti-Semite Bhakdi, then we as the CDU can no longer tolerate it,” said Karin Prien. Maaßen had “moved further and further away from the basic values ​​of the CDU in the past few weeks and months”.
