Government manages to shift the narrative to “ethnic cleansing” plans of the AfD
If you don’t like a conversation, change the topic:
- After the defamation of the farmers did not stick, the government by the hand one of its secret services (The Constitutional Protection Agency) was gifted a distraction topic:
- The aforementioned agency had infiltrated an AfD meeting on mass deportation and jumped on the fact that AfD planned “ethnic cleansing” / “forced displacement”: https://www.tagesschau.de/inland/innenpolitik/afd-neonazis-geheimtreffen-100.html
- Interesting enough, not that long ago, chancellor Scholz was talking about the need for “mass deportations” in connection to the Israel protests: https://www.spiegel.de/politik/deutschland/olaf-scholz-ueber-migration-es-kommen-zu-viele-a-2d86d2ac-e55a-4b8f-9766-c7060c2dc38a
Either way, the gift of the Federal Security agencies was enhanced by the well-known identitarian activist Martin Sellner having been involved: https://www.tagesschau.de/ausland/europa/sellner-102.htmlMost importantly an online petition (
https://weact.campact.de/petitions/wehrhafte-demokratie-hocke-stoppen) has been launched in order to remove the "Basic Rights" ( Constitutional Rights) of the prominent AfD politician Björn Höcke (Member of the State Parliament of Thuringia, he is a member of the right wing of the populist party AfD): https://www.tagesschau.de/inland/innenpolitik/faq-grundrechtsverwirkung-hoecke-100.html
Such petition, if successful, would remove basic rights such as freedom of expression (which is heavily limited in Germany anyways when compared to the US 1st amendment guarantee) or freedom of movement. However, a) such a process would take years and b) has never been granted by the German constitutional court.
CDU governor of the state of Schleswig-Holstein is openly supporting banning the AfD as a party: https://www.spiegel.de/politik/deutschland/afd-daniel-guenther-offen-fuer-verbotsverfahren-a-cb66e0b6-c840-4cf4-9521-395abdcbf801
However, a party has not been successfully banned since 1956 (when the communist KPD was banned), prior to that the SRP (the Nazi successor party) had been banned.
