Freudian slip? Newspaper "Tagesspiegel" describes AfD youth organisation as "Jewish organisation"


In an article published this morning in the politically radical-left newspaper "Tagesspiegel" about plans by the AfD party federal executive to deprive the party's youth organization of its status, the editors made a significant mistake. It writes of a "Jewish organization", where "youth organization" should stand. And this in connection with "sectarian structures". This could, of course, be a simple typo/print error that happened unrecognized by the editors and the many other sections that an article has to go through in such large newspapers.But it could also be understood as a typical Freudian slip-up, which betrays the anti-Israeli, often cryptic-antisemitic ideas of left-wing media... The error has now been corrected.
