This warning is most pertinent to the state-level CDU organizations in eastern Germany, where an expected increase in support for the far-right AfD in elections this summer will probably result in exactly that temptation.
The deeper problem is that the far-right electorate exists. As @Yascha_Mounk put it: "Clearly, about a quarter of the Austrian public is comfortable with a party that openly attacks the rule of law and tolerates extreme anti-Semites in its midst."
In my view, there is probably not a way to durably marginalize the parties this electorate votes for if the traditional center-right refuses to co-opt some of their positions. This is far from being a purely Austrian problem.
