Earlier this week, Dieter Gummer, a member of the notoriously pro-migrant left-wing Social Democratic Party, answered his door to find an unfamiliar man who heavily punched the 67-year-old politician in the face. Last month, an attack turned fatal as Walter Luebcke, 65, a member of Chancellor Angela Merkel’s left-wing Christian Democrats, was shot in the head and killed at his home. He had reportedly received death threats due to his pro-migrant sentiments. Police arrested Stephan Ernst for the murder, and he confessed to being motivated by his far-right beliefs. Interior Minister Horst Seehofer blamed rising lawlessness on right-wing extremism, the “real threat” to society, but he ignored the fact that immigrants, who represent only 2% of Germany’s population, commit 14.3% of all fatal crimes and 12.2% of all sexual offenses. A group representing mayors seek to protect public officials while ignoring the public whose vulnerability has been aggravated by a massive increase in non-European migrants.

Mayor of Hockenheim, a city in southwest Germany, was left bloodied and hospitalized after an unknown assailant punched him. Amid a sharp rise in threats to the political elite, one politician has already died. Reports suggest that such attacks are becoming more common.

Dieter Gummer, a member of the notoriously pro-migrant left-wing Social Democratic Party, answered his door on Monday evening to find an unfamiliar face outside. The visitor heavily punched the 67-year-old politician in the face, according to police in nearby Ludwigshafen.

Gummer fell on the floor and hit his head, requiring treatment in hospital. The culprit fled the scene. The attacker was unknown to the mayor and is described by police as a man of slim build, around 40 years old, with dark skin. Police in the southern German town says they’re baffled as to the motive and are“investigating in all directions.”

However, across Germany, rage and violence against public officials are on the rise. Last year, more than 1,200 threats, criminal insults, and acts of physical violence were committed against officials, Leipzig Mayor Burkhard Jung, who also chairs the German Association of Cities, told a meeting of concerned mayors last week. Nearly all German states have reported sharp yearly increases in violence since at least 2017.

At the meeting, the mayors described how rude comments in public and on social media would progress to action. They told of finding the wheel nuts loosened on their cars, discovering rifle cartridges on their doorsteps, and receiving death threats in their mailboxes.

“The people in my administration are afraid to open their doors,”said one Bavarian mayor, quoted by Der Tagesspiegel.“This cannot be.”
