One less source of Fake News: Udo Ulfkotte is dead
20 January 1960 – 13 January 2017
Right-wing conspiracy theorist, PEGIDA- and AfD-sympathiser and Putin-lover Ulfkotte died of a heart-attack at age 56.
The German journalist, who wrote a book alleging a CIA stranglehold on the German media, was widely celebrated by certain elements within the populist movements in Europe. He was a media-strategist for German extremist political movements, and often cited as an ‘expert’ on Russia Today. His twitter-account was a source of many hoaxes, eagerly shared by Islamophobic and xenophobic Germans and other European hatemongers.
Ulfkotte was a racist, a fascist and a liar.
His death makes the world a slightly better place.
