A German anti-Muslim leader has resigned from his position of the anti-Muslim movement, PEGIDA, after posing as ‘Hitler’ on a Facebook group. According to a report by The Inquisitr on Jan. 21, the man got his hair cut, dyed black, and even parted to the right to look just like Hitler himself. He even had his moustache done just the way Hitler had his done. After he posed like this not only on the Facebook group for the movement but also for a newspaper called, Bild, it prompted a police investigation. Police are saying he is promoting hatred because of this.
According to the report, the anti-Muslim supporter, 41 year old Lutz Bachmann who is also a butcher’s son not only posed to look like Adolf Hitler but he also used the caption with the photo that said:
These words actually refer to the bestselling 2012 novel about the late Hitler himself. Not only did he do all of this but he also posted some racial slurs on the social media site. This prompted police to start an investigation on him and also prompted him to resign from his spot on PEGIDA, the anti-Muslim group in Germany.
According to Reuters, Bachmann is also a convicted burglar. After posing like this for Facebook and the newspaper, Bild and another popular newspaper in Germany, he also started calling asylum-seekers ‘animals’ and ‘scumbags.’
PEGIDA stands for Patriotic Europeans Against the Islamisation of the West and are based out of Dresdon, Germany.
