DF throws out member for accusing Crown Prince and PM of terrorism

Controversial Facebook updates earn Silkeborg politician his walking papers

Kell Siegenfeldt, a Dansk Folkeparti member from Silkeborg who ran for election in 2013 has been told by the party to “quit or be thrown out”.

The ultimatum came in the wake of updates on Siegenfeldt’s Facebook page where he accused, among others, Crown Prince Frederik and PM Helle Thorning-Schmidt of being responsible for the recent terrorist attacks in Denmark.

“The true perpetrators of terror in Denmark,” wrote Siegenfeldt under a photo of Mette Frederiksen, the justice minister and the PM.

Next to a photo of the PM Siegenfeldt wrote, “Here are the some of those REALLY guilty of terrorism and the Islamisation of Denmark.”

Proud of being racist
The Silkeborg politician also said that being called a racist was not an insult, it was “a mark of honour”.
