“We could kill migrants by shooting them, that’s not even an issue,” he said, according to the video. “Or we could gas them, whatever you want, I don’t care.”
The party tweeted Lüth ”is no longer a member of the AfD and has not spoken for the party since January 2018.”
Lüth was previously a spokesman for the party until 2018. In April, he was suspended as spokesman for AfD’s parliamentary group after he made other xenophobic remarks in social media chat groups, said AfD spokesman Bastian Behrens.
After returning from summer break, the parliamentary group considered reinstating Lüth as spokesman.
But the video’s revelations about the xenophobic remarks put an end to that, Behrens said. The parliamentary group, which always meets on Mondays, immediately decided to let him go.
Lüth resigned as party member on his own accord, according to Behrens.
