So the SPD were just trying to fool the public into believing Die Linke were unworthy of their vote at the next election?

One never knows what such stupid FAIL strategies were meant for, but I'd look for something much more short-term: fooling SPD voters and the party base into believing that the desired left-wing replacement of the longtime CDU government was impossible due to Die Linke. "Sorry, we couldn't toss the corrupt incumbents from power, the unreliable Leftists left us no other option than trying to constrain the pigs in a coalition."
