At a recent rally in Bremen, protesters even used pepper spray against AfD co-founder Bernd Lucke, a distinguished professor of economics.

"We have formulated an alternative for people who were disappointed not only by the FDP but by all the other parties as well," said party leader Bernd Lucke, 51, a previously little-known professor of economics at Hamburg University.
"We put fear in the hearts of other parties," he said. "We have made democracy in Germany richer and stronger."
He had been a member of Merkel's conservatives for 33 years before co-founding the AfD, which wants to force struggling euro zone countries out of the single currency area.
"We believed we could make it into parliament so we are of course disappointed... but we have a strong consensus and our policies remain very relevant," he told German television.
"The situation is still dangerous for Europe," he added, warning that a third Greek bailout was imminent and the euro zone was still in crisis.
"We're a new 'Volkspartei'," said Lucke, using the term used to describe Germany's two biggest parties, the CDU and SPD.

"We believe that we're very close to the 5 percent hurdle," AfD chairman Bernd Lucke said at a press conference in Berlin. Even so, voter awareness that the party exists is "not yet satisfactory," he said.
"The concerns of citizens can clearly be felt," said Lucke, an economics professor at Hamburg University. "This theme will be our main topic on the streets and town squares" as the party gears up for election day, he said.
Italian and Spanish government bonds were little changed today, a sign that investors may be willing to tolerate political unrest in Europe's most-indebted nations. Portuguese 10-year bonds trimmed a three-day decline that was sparked partly by concern the country's government could collapse amid disagreement over austerity.
Southern European countries can't cope with the competitive pressure exerted by the euro and are suffering because they can't devalue the 17-nation single currency, Lucke said May 16 in a Bloomberg Television interview. Countries such as Spain, Greece and Cyprus should quit the common currency to return to economic health, he said.
While short of a comprehensive program, the party has created committees to fill gaps in its platform outside its main area of competence, Lucke said today he said. The AfD will compete in the federal election in all of Germany's 16 states, he said.
The party is also drawing up plans to overhaul Germany's dual health-insurance system, reorganize military procurement and review Germany's foreign military operations outside the North Atlantic Treaty Organization area, Lucke said.

Party founder Bernd Lucke, an economics professor, says that even though the worst of the economic crisis appeared to have passed, "not a single problem in Europe has been solved."
"The symptoms have been treated in that all the problems have been patched up with a lot of money," he said.

Contrary to the M5S, however, the AfD's main leader, Bernd Lucke, is not a populist comedian, but an even-tempered 50-year old economics professor at the University of Hamburg. Lucke is also founder and chairman of the "Plenum of Economists", a German initiative formed in 2010 to challenge the creation of the euro area's permanent bailout fund, the ESM.
Parallel domestic currencies - similar to the introduction of the euro - with initially fixed exchange rates, which would subsequently be adjusted to reflect differences in economic strength, seem to be one of the options considered by Lucke and his academic peers.
