Far-right German politician starts a new party with a logo bearing a secret Nazi symbol

(CNN)A leading far-right German politician has announced his departure from the Alternative for Germany (AfD) party in order to create his own political organization.

The new party's logo includes a cornflower, which was also adopted as a secret symbol by Nazis in the 1930s.

André Poggenburg, a former leading figure in the AfD in the eastern state of Saxony-Anhalt, resigned this week with an email sent to the leadership, in which he criticized the party's supposed move to the left.

"Unfortunately, developments inside the AfD in the past weeks and months have shown, that this is no longer my true political home," he said in the email, which was seen by German news site Spiegel Online.

COMMENT:-

Oh come on now. I mean "everyone knows" that you can't be a **R*E*A*L** Nazi unless you wear black and silver uniforms with jackboots, wave banners with swastikas on them and should "Heil Hitler" every time you enter a room.

Right?
