The founder of Germany’s new anti-”Islam” movement, Lutz Bachmann, is making headlines after he posted a picture on Facebook showing him wearing an Adolf Hitler-like moustache and hair style with the title “He is Back!”
The 41-year-old, who founded ‘Patriotic Europeans Against the Islamisation of the Occident’, styles a wet hair swept into a side-parting reminiscent of the Nazi leader. His picture went viral almost immediately after it surfaced in German media Wednesday.
His group, which had drawn 25,000 supporters, has held near weekly marches voicing anger against Islam and “criminal asylum seekers.”
According to media reports, PEGIDA cancelled its Monday evening march in Dresden after police banned all public open-air gatherings within city limits for the day, citing the “concrete threat” of an assassination attempt against the group’s leaders. But the group has vowed to rally again next week.
