In 2011, according to a Tagesspiegel report , she gave up her work as an insolvency lawyer and lived on savings in order to be able to devote herself fully to her political activities.

Network activities and lobbying

Von Storch has been politically active since the mid-1990s. She uses associations and initiatives founded and managed by her and her husband Sven as a conservative network . These include in particular the Göttinger Kreis , the Zivile Koalition e. V. , the Bürgerkonvent and Internet presences and . In the public, she is perceived variously as a lobbyist .

Von Storch is the author of the magazine strangely free and a member of the Friedrich A. von Hayek Society , which, however, asked her to leave in early 2016.

"Göttinger Kreis" and "Alliance for the Rule of Law"

Von Storch is a co-founder of the Göttinger Kreis - Students for the Rule of Law Association. V. , which advocates reparation for the expulsions and expropriations caused by the land and industrial reform in the Soviet occupation zone . The association organized various events with Mikhail Gorbachev, among others . The Alliance for the Rule of Law , led by her, also calls for the land reform land to be returned to the previous owners.

Civil coalition

Von Storch was a co-founder in 2005 and has been the first chairwoman, spokesperson and secretary of the civil coalition e. V. According to a report in the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung, all seven founding members come from their own family, her husband Sven is the second chairman and treasurer. The association sees itself as an association of citizens who advocate more civil society engagement and represent their common interests vis-à-vis governments and parliaments. The network includes the blog Die Freie Welt , whose editor is her husband Sven and whose public relations work Beatrix von Storch is responsible for, as well as the Institute for Strategic Studies (ISSB) and the Alliance for the Rule of Law and Initiative Family Protection.

The Civil Coalition initiated and organized a class action of over 5000 citizens before the European Court of Justice (ECJ) against the purchase of government bonds of indebted EU countries by the European Central Bank (ECB).

The Handelsblatt described the civil coalition in 2012 as a protest company that feels committed to a conservative worldview.

According to an article published in Cicero , von Storch plays an important role "in the conservative camp outside the Union " on the civil coalition - with 14 employees (as of 2013) as the mainstay of the resistance it organized against the euro rescue course . You have "almost a hundred thousand" supporters. The family protection initiative, which, among other things, advocates childcare allowance and against gay marriage , is also affiliated . However, this information is repeatedly called into question. According to a report by the Tagesspiegel , the association consists exclusively of family members, the number of supporters is well below the specified mark of 100,000.

According to Andreas Kemper , the civil coalition is “the most politically effective Christian fundamentalist force in the AfD”.

Accusation of private use of donations

A week before the federal election in September 2013, Welt am Sonntag reported that it had documents, statements and affidavits that would allow private expenses for the von Storchs to be financed through donations from the Civil Coalition. V. would suggest. According to this, Sven von Storch withdrew 98,000 euros in cash in seven equal tranches from an association account in 2012 within a few weeks , for the whereabouts of which there is no evidence. In addition, several electricity bills for an apartment of the von Storchs and for "sculptures and garden items" were paid from the funds of the association, as well as the rent for an apartment on Kurfürstendamm . On a multi-week trip to Chile , Sven von Storch, who was born there, also withdrew 10,000 euros in cash. Fabian Leber commented in the Tagesspiegel: "The piquant thing about it is that, according to the extract from the association register, the board consists only of the Storch couple - she is the chairman and secretary, he is her deputy and auditor."

Beatrix von Storch explained her husband's cash withdrawal of 10,000 euros by saying that his bank card had not worked abroad. The loan had interest at four percent. Regarding the whereabouts of the 98,000 euros from 2012, she repeatedly stated that the money had been deposited in a safe deposit box due to the uncertainty in the financial markets and the euro crisis . This was certified by a Berlin notary on September 16, 2013: “All documents are available and will of course be properly and timely submitted to the responsible tax office .” She rejected all “allegations and assumptions” as “unfounded and unfounded” and spoke of one "Transparent defamation" based on the information provided by a former employee who was dismissed in early 2013. It is "significant" that this woman is an active FDP member. It is a "media campaign".

Citizens' Convention

Beatrix von Storch was among other things, together with Vera Lengsfeld, a board member of the non-partisan citizens' convention . The association was dissolved in May 2015. According to the association's statutes, the aim of the association was to “promote participation in the formation of the political will of the population through civic education” and to “improve the future viability of society in Germany and Europe”. Leading founding members were the Bonn political scientist Gerd Langguth and the social scientist and publicist Meinhard Miegel .


Von Storch was a brief member of the FDP in 2011 . In 2013 she was one of the 68 main illustrators of the election alternative 2013 and joined the Alternative für Deutschland (AfD) party founded in the same year . At the federal party conference of the AfD in July 2015 in Essen , von Storch was elected deputy federal spokeswoman (federal chairwoman). It received 86.7 percent of the votes cast. In January 2016, von Storch was elected chairwoman of the AfD Berlin by the Berlin state party conference . It received 189 votes, 54 against and 22 abstentions. After allegations of fraud because of double votes, notarial recounting and the finding of two party courts that von Storch was illegally in office, the board of directors was re-elected in November 2017. The court's request to inform party members of the invalid election was not followed by von Storch by September 2017. Since the federal party conference in Hanover in December 2017, von Storch is no longer the deputy federal spokeswoman, but an assessor in the fourteen- member federal executive committee .

Von Storch opposes an alleged “ sexualization of society”, advocates a conservative approach to gender roles and a traditional family image, and rejects same-sex marriage . According to her own statement, she was one of the organizers of the “Demo for All” in Stuttgart, directed against the 2015 education plan, and took part in the “ March for Life ” demonstration in Berlin in September 2014 by the movement against abortion and euthanasia . She rejects the “Mach's mit” campaign by the Federal Center for Health Education , which advertises the use of condoms to prevent unwanted pregnancies and sexually transmitted diseases with posters . Instead, according to Storch, there should be a public campaign for sexual abstinence .

Candidate for the federal election 2013

Von Storch ran for the 2013 federal election in second place on the Berlin state list and as a direct candidate for the Berlin-Mitte constituency ; she received 3.0% of the first votes .

During the election campaign, von Storch wrote an open letter to the Catholic Archbishop Robert Zollitsch , in which she turned against so-called gay marriage , presented a conservative view of the family and accused the chairman of the German Bishops' Conference of publicly warning against the AfD of abuse of office . Günther Lachmann condemned the archbishop's political influence around the world , but described Storch's open letter as unsuitable for benefiting politically from this "slip". The letter was presumptuous in its choice of words and a “doomed attempt to moralize a man of God.” Von Storch provided the opponents of her party with arguments that could “bring down” the AfD.

After the election, she employed the state chairman of the AfD Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania , Leif-Erik Holm , as an office manager in her Berlin office.

Candidate for the 2014 European elections

On January 25, 2014, von Storch was elected fourth on the list for the 2014 European elections at the federal party conference of the Alternative for Germany in Aschaffenburg with 142 out of 282 votes . According to a report in the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung to the internal party grouping of Stork in this election Christians in the Alternative for Germany have been supported, in its policy statement u. a. calls for an abortion ban and a ban on euthanasia and rejects equality between same-sex partnerships . In the run-up to this nomination, von Storch had denounced the alleged power of a so-called gay lobby, according to reports by Spiegel and the taz .

Member of the European Parliament

Beatrix von Storch in the European Parliament (2014)

In the European elections in Germany in 2014 , she was elected as a candidate of the AfD for a member of the European Parliament . There she was a member of the Committee on Civil Liberties, Justice and Home Affairs (LIBE) and the Committee on Women's Rights and Gender Equality (FEMM) as well as deputy in the Committee on Economic and Monetary Affairs (ECON). She was also a member of the delegation to the EU-Chile Joint Parliamentary Committee (D-CL) and the delegation to the Euro-Latin American Parliamentary Assembly (DLAT). In 2014 she ran unsuccessfully for the post of deputy chairman of the women's committee. She was parliamentary director until May 2015 . With her election to the Bundestag in November 2017, von Storch handed over her membership in the European Parliament to Jörg Meuthen .

Comments on the refugee situation in 2016 - use of firearms against refugees

In the refugee debate , von Storch stated in a Facebook post at the end of January 2016 that people entering Germany via Austria had no right to asylum under Section 18, Paragraph 2 of the Asylum Act and should therefore be refused entry. With reference to § 11 of the law on direct coercion (UZwG) she concluded: "And if [s] you do not accept the HALT at the border, the enforcement officers in the border service can also use firearms against people." When asked, she wanted it too Do not exclude women and children. After criticism, she took children, but not women, from her demands; The use of firearms against children is "rightly not permitted". Her, as well as a similar statement by Frauke Petrys , were heavily criticized by politicians from all other parties, representatives of society and in the media public, and rejected by the police union .

In response to criticism from members of the AfD federal executive board, who objected to Petrys and Storch's statements as "tactical mistakes, as it were the disclosure of the right attitude at the wrong time," according to the Spiegel , von Storch told party friends that she had "screwed up" and Petry “Just want to help”. Her statement that the contribution was a “technical error” and that she “slipped” on her computer mouse caused scorn and ridicule on the Internet. On Facebook von Storch denied by saying that she had never said “the story with the mouse”, that it was “simply too stupid”.

According to constitutional lawyer Christoph Schönberger , the use of firearms by police officers at the border is “at best theoretically” conceivable. The use of firearms is disproportionate if an unarmed, non-aggressive person tries to get into the Federal Republic. The law has the constellation in mind that a person systematically evades control. This applies in particular to criminals or drug-related crime. The mere protection of the external border against the entry of a refugee is in no way sufficient to use firearms.

In May 2016, the Bild newspaper reported that von Storch was under police protection because of death threats against her .

Exclusion from the European party ECPM and change of faction

Von Storch in July 2014 belonged to Europe Party Political Movement European Christian (ECPM) as an individual member. According to a report by Reformatorisch Dagblad , the ECPM board of directors excluded von Storch from the party in March 2016, citing her statements on the use of firearms on the border against women and children as well as her contacts with the FPÖ as reasons for this .

An exclusion from the Group of the European Conservatives and Reformists (ECR) came before von Storch by leaving. On April 8, 2016, she left the ECR group and joined the right-wing populist group on Europe of Freedom and Direct Democracy (EFDD).

Entry into the 19th German Bundestag

For the 2017 Bundestag election , Storch ran in the Bundestag electoral district of Berlin-Mitte , in which she reached fifth place among the direct candidates with 7.9% of the first votes, and moved into the 19th German Bundestag via the state list of the AfD Berlin .

On October 5, 2017, she was elected one of five deputy chairmen of the AfD parliamentary group.

Reports by the Cologne police and others on suspicion of sedition

On the occasion of the New Year's Eve celebrations 2017, the Cologne police wished all citizens a Happy New Year via Twitter . For this purpose, four tweets with identical content were published in German, English, French and Arabic (in that order). Beatrix von Storch commented under the tweet with an Arab New Year wish:

“What the hell is going on in this country? Why is an official police website from NRW tweeting in Arabic. Do you mean to appease the barbaric, Muslim, gang-raping hordes of men? "

- Beatrix von Storch : Twitter, January 1, 2018

The Cologne police then filed a criminal complaint against Beatrix von Storch on suspicion of sedition ( Section 130 of the Criminal Code [StGB]). The public prosecutor's office received “several hundred” further criminal charges against von Storch. Twitter deleted the tweet for violating the company's rules on hateful content. Thereupon she repeated her Twitter entry and put the content on Facebook with the addition that “with regard to Muslims, she only mean those for whom the state has set up shelter tents for women”. The AfD brought the blocking of the Twitter account in connection with the Network Enforcement Act , which came into full force on the same day. According to the legal scholar Matthias Jahn , the tweet did not meet the criminal offense of sedition. He argued that the lawyer and AfD MP was consciously moving to the limit of what is permissible. The Berlin Public Prosecutor closed the investigation in mid-February 2018. For the German scholar Heinrich Detering , von Storch inserted the term “ Muslim ” between “ barbaric ” and “group- raping ” “as naturally as if it belonged to the same field of terms ”.

defense of Constitution

Five quotes from Storchs were part of a statement by the Federal Office for the Protection of the Constitution (BfV) based on statements by 50 AfD functionaries in January 2019, stating that there were “indications of a policy of the AfD directed against the free democratic basic order ”. In particular, von Storch is quoted with depictions of an alleged connection between Islamic upbringing and increased propensity for violence, demands for “anti- Sharia legislation” and general surveillance of mosques, generalization of the non-integrability of Muslims in western societies and equations of the political system Federal Republic with developments in the Nazi state . The BfV sees in the quotations indications for violation of human dignity according to Art. 1 GG , religious freedom according to Art. 4 GG , demands for the alignment of trade or action of the constitutional protection not to law and order, but to political guidelines as well as such contempt of the political conditions that can be taken from evidence of efforts against the principle of democracy . A working group set up by the AfD under Roland Hartwig came to the conclusion eight months later that “8 clues from the office were listed in a comprehensible way”, including allegations against von Storch.

Political classification by political scientists and journalists

Von Storch is assigned to the right- wing conservative wing of the party. Oskar Niedermayer described her as an “ arch conservative ” in the AfD's inner-party spectrum in the area of ​​family and gender politics. David Bebnowski from the Göttingen Institute for Democracy Research describes von Storch as " reactionary ". She is “the radical force for radical Christian-conservative concerns” of the AfD, stands for “restorative demands” and is considered to be the “representative” of a “'classical' family model [s]”, “militant anti-communism” and “nationwide patriotism” ". Alexander Häusler attests that von Storch has a “nationalistic understanding of democracy”.

For Kathrin Haimerl, news editor at Sü , the AfD with the "ultra-conservative" Storch will be "able to connect to the extreme right of the political spectrum of opinion".


Legal dispute with the Berlin Schaubühne

On 15 December 2015, had the Berlin district court applications by Stork and Hedwig of Beverfoerdes from the Berlin schaubühne by injunction the use of portrait photos of them in the play FEAR of Falk Richter ban. “Richter's characters”, wrote Daniel Müller in DIE ZEIT , “have visions of horror in FEAR, fall into feverish nightmares, scream, grunt, suffer. In the background pictures of lazy-toothed, bloodthirsty zombies flicker across the stage, which are cross-cut with the portraits of Beate Zschäpe and [...] also of Beatrix von Storch and [...] Hedwig von Beverfoerde Invasion of human dignity and no serious personal injury . Equal treatment with mass murderers such as the right-wing terrorist Breivik or neo-Nazis does not result from the use of the images. As far as the personal rights of the applicants according to Art. 2 Para. 1 Basic Law are violated by the play - albeit not in a particularly serious way - the right to artistic freedom according to Art. 5 Para. 3 Basic Law stands in opposition. In the context of the weighing to be made, artistic freedom takes precedence.

Attack against VfL Osnabrück

In spring 2018, Beatrix von Storch attacked the third division soccer team VfL Osnabrück for a campaign “against the right ” with the words “Dear Honks from VfL Osnabrück, can you clarify something? Who or what exactly is 'right'? And when exactly do you stand up against ' Left '? ”The association replied with the words“ Thanks for the reaction, Beatrix von Storch, we seem to have hit a nerve. We take your insult and the content of your tweet as a compliment and feel confirmed in our position. ”According to the association,“ Against Right ”stands for a sign against all kinds of extremism, among other things . VfL Osnabrück also promised von Storch that a jersey would be sent to them if they were identified with the values.

Tweet on the occasion of the rampage in Münster on April 7, 2018

In a Twitter post, von Storch described the German perpetrator Jens R. of the rampage in Münster on April 7, 2018 as an “imitator of Islamic terror ”. Before that, before it was clear who was responsible for the crime, she tweeted the Merkel quote “ We can do it ” in capital letters with an angry emoticon, thus placing the crime in connection with refugee policy . Four people were killed and numerous others injured in the rampage. The general secretary of the CSU Markus Blume then asked von Storch to give up her parliamentary mandate. The AfD chairman Jörg Meuthen also criticized them. Four days later, von Storch apologized.
