NEW AMERICAN TEA PARTY ALLIES: THE GERMAN FREEDOM PARTY
Die Freihiet, the German political party, is called, in full, Freedom Civil Rights Party for More Freedom and Democracy (Die Freiheit Bürgerrechtspartei für mehr Freiheit und Demokratie).
Freedom was founded in October 2010 by the Berlin parliamentarian René Stadtkewitz.
Stadtkewitz was expelled from the Christian Democratic Union in 2010 after inviting Dutch politician Geert Wilders of the Party for Freedom (PVV) to give a speech in Berlin. A number of other politicians, who left their respective parties, also joined Stadtkewitz.
