Austrian deputy mayor from Hitler's birthplace resigns because his & # 39; mean and racist & # 39; poem that compares migrants with rats, is compared with Nazi propaganda
- Christian Schilcher resigned from his role at Braunau am Inn on Tuesday
- His poem in the Vrijheidspartij newsletter was compared to Nazi propaganda
- The rodent's narrator encourages migrants to integrate or & # 39; hurry away & # 39;
The deputy mayor of Adolf Hitler's residence resigned Tuesday after widespread criticism of a poem in which he spoke of immigration in terms of rats.
Christian Schilcher of the far-right Freedom Party stepped out of his role in Braunau am Inn, Austria, after his words in the group's newsletter were compared with Nazi propaganda.
The rodent's narrator encourages migrants to integrate or & # 39; hurry away & # 39; and added that if you mix different cultures, & # 39; it's like destroying them & # 39 ;.

Sebastian Kurz, the Austrian Chancellor, previously demanded that the Freedom Party – which is its own people's party in coalition with – distance itself from the & # 39; detestable & # 39; poem that was sent to every household in the northern city.
& # 39; The resignation of the vice-mayor of Braunau was the only logical consequence of this mean and racist poem, & # 39; said Mr. Kurz. & # 39; The clear step of the Vice Chancellor and the FPÖ summit was necessary and correct. & # 39;
The deputy chancellor and leader of the PVD, Heinz-Christian Strache, also condemned the poem as & # 39; incompatible & # 39; with the party's values and said that Mr. Schilcher had resigned & # 39; to prevent damage to the party & # 39 ;.

& # 39; He was caught on the political sewer system & # 39 ;, said Stratche according to The Telegraph.
The poem, titled & # 39; The City Rat & # 39 ;, wrote from the perspective of a rat who lives in the sewers below the city, who is upset about the arrival of new rats.
Schilcher's metaphor reminded many of the Nazi propaganda in which Jewish people were often compared to rodents.
Pamela Rendi-Wagner, head of the Social-Democratic Center-Left Party (SPÖ), said such comparisons were common in Nazi propaganda.
Schilcher, who is thought to have resigned from the PVV, said he was not going to offend or hurt anyone & # 39; with his poem.
& # 39; The fact is that the comparison of people and rats is historically burdened and more than unfortunate, and I am truly sorry that I have ignored this & he said.
