The CDU-critical video of the Youtubers Rezo has hit the party apparently in mark and leg. A party-based association is now calling for the creation of its own YouTube influencers.

Youtuber Rezo’s video “The Destruction of the CDU”, watched by 14 million people now, and the subsequent video of numerous Youtubers calling for the CDU not to vote, has created a stir in the party landscape. In particular, the CDU thin-skinned to allergic to the attacks – party leader Annegret Kramp-Karrenbauer thought about aloud about a regulation of opinions in the network before elections. Many observers saw this as an attack on freedom of expression. Kramp-Karrenbauer himself described this as an “absurd” assumption.

Recommendation: The Youtube Troupe of the CDU?

After the announced in response, but apparently on pressure from Angela Merkel recaptured video of the 26-year-old CDU politician Philipp Amthor was missing, it is now a “Youtube own troupe judge,” as Bild am Sonntag writes. According to this, the party-based association “cnetz” in a working paper demands that the party should “build its own influencers” who “think less pre-eminently”.

Because in the media scene prevail at least a “perceived preference for green and left views,” according to the active in the club CDU politicians and ordinary members of the party. The influencers should not be typical politicians, is another piece of advice. The technique can look at Rezo, it says in the proposal on: “Fast, concise arguments, cuts, quotes, charts, music, web communication” instead of a five-minute video in which only one piece talk.

AKK: Personal Values ​​According to Survey in the Basement

Kramp-Karrenbauer seems to have hurt the handling of the Rezo video at least badly – her personal values ​​are in the basement, if you believe a recent Emnid survey. According to the survey commissioned by Bild am Sonntag, only 17 percent of respondents consider Kramp-Karrenbauer to be the right person to lead the CDU into the future. 62 percent disagree. Also, the weak result in the European elections and a Forsa survey for RTL, according to which the Greens have left the CDU / CSU just behind, should enforce the party leader.
