Björn Höcke (born 1 April 1972) is a German politician and a member of the patriotic Alternative for Germany (AfD) Party. Höcke was one of the founders of the AfD Thuringia, and became a Member of the Landtag, the state assembly of the federal state of Thuringia during the 2014 Thuringian State Elections. He is the speaker of the AfD parliamentary group, and he is the spokesman of the Thuringia Landesverband (English: Regional Association) of his party. Alexander Gauland once described Höcke as "the center of the party."[1]

Björn Höcke was born in Lünen, Westphalia. His grandparents were Germans expelled by the Soviets and Poles from East Prussia in 1945. He took his Abitur at the Rhein-Wied-Gymnasium, Neuwied, in 1991. Höcke was a former history teacher at the Rhenanus School, a comprehensive school in Bad Sooden-Allendorf.


Along with Andreas Kalbitz, Höcke was the co-leader of the AfD's ultra-conservative or national conservative "Der Flügel" faction which came under fierce attack by the Liberal-Left on several occasions. 40 percent of AfD party members in Thuringia were said to identify themselves with this faction. Following a request by the AfD executive board to dissolve "Der Flügel" by the end of April 2020, the group's online presence went offline. What has actually happened is unclear.

Höcke has called for more "Prussian virtues" and promotes natalist views, specifically the "three-child family as a political and social model." He opposes gender mainstreaming and demands an end to "social experiments" that undermine the "natural gender order." He opposes the mainstreaming of students with disabilities, calling for such students to go to separate schools, and opposes sexual education in schools, which he regards as "early sexualization of the students," and wants to "stop the dissolution of the natural polarity of the two sexes".

On the European alien immmigration crisis, Höcke opposes Germany's asylum policy, leading regular demonstrations in Erfurt against the federal government's asylum policy, which regularly attract thousands of sympathizers. He is reported to have declared that if Europe kept on accepting alien immigrants, African "reproductive behavior" would not change. In 2017, Höcke addressed Africans in Germany saying "for you there is no future and no home in Germany or in Europe!" In this he is echoing His Holiness The Dalai Lama who stated in Summer 2019 that "Europe should be for Europeans".

In January 2017 Höcke made a speech in Dresden in which, referring to the Holocaust memorial in Berlin, he stated that "we Germans are the only people in the world who have planted a memorial of shame in the heart of their capital" and suggested that Germans "need to make a 180 degree change in their commemoration policy". The expected outcry and condemnations as a result of this speech were soon forthcoming and several of the AfD national hierarchy, in February 2017. called for Björn Höcke to be expelled from the party. However, justice for freedom of expression prevailed and in May 2018 an AfD tribunal ruled that he could remain in the party.[2]

Höcke opposes the Euro, favoring a return to Germany's old national currency, the Mark, but also the woke social terror of transgenderism.


Höcke is married and has four children.
