"Do you think that you are going to appease the barbaric, muslim, gang-raping hordes of men?"
German police have filed a complaint against a prominent member of Germany's far-right AfD party over an anti-Muslim tweet on New Year's Eve which they say violated laws against incitement to hate.
The attacks, allegedly carried out by men with migrant backgrounds, sparked outrage across Germany amid tensions over the arrival of 1.1million refugees in 2015.
Beatrix von Storch, deputy leader of the AfD party, had her Twitter account temporarily suspended on Monday after posting an inflammatory message. Subsequently, Von Storch's Twitter account was blocked for several hours on Monday over a suspected breach of rules on hate speech. Officials gave social networks such as Facebook, Twitter and YouTube until the end of 2017 to prepare themselves for the implementation of the law, and Ms. Von Storch was among its first victims. "Why is the official page of police in NRW tweeting in Arabic?" "The year begins with the censorship law and the submission of our authorities in front of the imported, marauding, groping, beating, knife stabbing migrant mobs, which we should get used", she posted on Facebook.
Ever since Merkel's open-door policy has been in effect, "crime and violence have become a part of daily life in Germany", von Storch told Breitbart.
They also published a tweet in Arabic that said: "The Cologne police wishes all people of Cologne, Leverkusen and the area a happy new year 2018". 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.
"Facebook has also censored me".
The incident comes only a month after Germany made a new law and will now enforce fines up to £44m on social media sites if they fail to remove "obviously illegal" posts.
Alternative for Germany seized 92 parliamentary seats in the September elections-the strongest showing for a far-right party in the post-war era-as it capitalized on discontent over the more than one million asylum seekers who have arrived in Germany since 2015.
