Beatrix von Storch called Muslim men 'barbaric and gang-raping'.

Germany's far-right AfD leader's twitter handle was blocked after her anti Muslim remarks

Two German far-right politicians are being investigated by police over anti-Muslim messages on New Year's Eve. "Do you think it is to appease the barbaric, gang-raping hordes of Muslim men?" wrote Beatrix von Storch, the deputy leader of the AfD's parliamentary group.

Ms Von Storch's tweet - which she subsequently posted on Facebook as well - was apparently a reference to 2015 New Year's Eve celebrations in Cologne, which were marred by mass sex assaults on women by men of mostly migrant backgrounds.

Von Storch's account was also blocked by Twitter for 12 hours following her post, and the tweet has since been removed.

Rainer Wendt, who heads the right-leaning DpolG union, said that establishing a safe zone sends a "devastating message". Why is an official police site tweeting in Arabic.

Utah Republican Sen. Orrin Hatch to retire; Romney could run
Hatch's move likely clears the way for Mitt Romney , the 2012 Republican presidential nominee, to run for the seat. But he reversed course and repeatedly insisted to reporters that he "intended" to seek re-election.

Having started off her career as a banker, von Storch went on to become a lawyer before entering politics. Storch posted the same comment on Facebook and her account was blocked from the social media website for the same reasons of provocation against Muslims.

While criticizing the action taken against her colleague, Weidel stated, "Our authorities submit to imported, marauding, groping, beating, knife-stabbing migrant mobs". "This is the end of the constitutional state".

On New Year's Eve, the Cologne police posted a message in Arabic on Twitter, wishing every a happy new year.

"This unconstitutional law is now used against the opposition", she said, and thus "freedom of speech in Germany is in peril".

Lions beat Packers 35-11 to finish up season at 9-7
Hundley was 14 of 24 for 172 yards with two interceptions and a fumble. “We just stopped ourselves.”. The last thing the Lions want is to suffer any significant injuries this late in the season.

Fellow members of the populists party lamented what they called "censorship attempts" by the social media and the federal government, referring to a new law that came into effect in the new year, in an attempt to clamp down on online hate speech.

AfD party chief Alexander Gauland took aim at the new rules, calling it "censorship" and saying the new regulations are "Stasi methods that remind me of communist East Germany".

Von Storch is one of 92 lawmakers for Alternative for Germany, or AfD, in the national parliament and her immunity from prosecution would have to be lifted for an investigation to be launched.
