Nuhr complains that criticism of certain topics leads to consequences “that cannot be easily endured.” He says: “There are people who are silenced. That’s enough to destroy existences!” He doesn’t give any examples of such existences.

The 63-year-old criticizes that the discussion of the federal government’s climate policy measures leads to being placed in the right-wing corner. But this is not the case, says Nuhr. Although he knows that his performances are well received by right-wing people, he still doesn’t share this idea. He makes it clear: calling his criticism of the government right-wing would destroy “democratic society at its foundations.” However, he himself will not allow himself to be silenced and will continue to reserve the right to criticize the government.
Dieter Nuhr is successful with his show “Nuhr im Erste”. At the same time, it is not without controversy. He repeatedly attracts criticism with his statements. Jan Böhmermann recently accused Nuhr of racism, among other things, in an issue of “ZDF Magazin Royale”.
