Famous quotes

“Because my daughter goes to the Friday demos, I will no longer be heating in the children’s room. If our children think we could drive this world with a little bit of sun and wind, then we parents should put a hamster wheel with a dynamo in their children’s room. Then they can charge their cell phones. ”
-Dieter Nuhr

Amazing facts

After a judge’s judgment, Dieter Nuhr may be dubbed “hate preacher” due to his content, which is sometimes strongly critical of Islam. The starting point was the dispute with the Muslim Erhat Toka, who reported Nuhr in 2014 for hate speech and abuse and described him as a “hate preacher”. Nuhr also took legal action against this designation, but failed. Due to this fact, it can now be called so without any consequences.
