Why Hofer lost: Two views

Did the candidate go too soft or was the electorate too indoctrinated?

Pegida's Lutz Bachmann on Monday advised anti-immigration candidates to make a sharp distinction from the establishment and to "Be like Trump" in order to win.


Below is an unedited automatic Google translation from yesterday's article in the Epoch Times titled “Call the police for a strike!”: Pegida boss Bachmann appeals to Ranier Wendt”.

Lutz Bachmann delivered a speech in Dresden yesterday. The head of the controversial citizens' movement Pegida demanded a strike of the police in Germany.

Norbert Hofer had lost Austria because he had become too soft, Bachmann said in his speech. This is a mistake that many conservative and patriotic forces make - they would over time mitigate their cleverness, hoping, however, to allow some of their opponents mild voices. "I've also made this mistake in the past months," said the Pegida founder. Press and politicians would turn their opponents anyway from any knot, no matter whether formulated harder or softer.

He [Bachmann] had realized that one could only win with absolutly clear speech without concessions. That was [the case with] the election of Donald Trump to the US President, said Bachmann. Trump had been "oblique" and "inflexible", was "lined up" [targeted] by the press, and had been chosen by the Americans precisely for this reason. "Our commandment of the hour is: Be like Trump," said Bachmann.
