When, in the late summer of 2017, the federal prosecutor began investigations against several members of the prepper scene in Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania, who are said to have left out chats about the fact that a crisis could also be an opportunity to take over power with subsequent internment or murder of left-wing politicians, the police found addresses of politicians from the Left , the FDP , the Greens , as well as refugee associations, workers' welfare and trade unions during house searches and then began to create a detailed picture of the scene, Kramer warned against considering their members as possible right-wing terrorists or as threats to the state order see.

In an interview with NDR 1 Radio MV , Kramer stated: “Men are made more for politics”.

For Social Affairs Minister Stefanie Drese , Kramer reveals the AfD's terrifyingly backward image of women with his statements.
