Germany considers ban on far-Right AfD

Over in Germany, according to reports this week, they are debating (i.e. polishing the jackboots ad buffing up the swastika badges,) the issue of whether to ban the 'far-Right Alternative for Germany (AfD) as the party surges to 21 per cent in the polls, amid warnings from intelligence officials that its members are becoming increasingly extreme. In fact AfD is a rather moderate party, only veering to the right of centre on immigration and EU membership

Frank-Walter Steinmeier, the German president, warned in a speech to the country’s domestic intelligence agency that “we all have it in our hands to put those who despise our democracy in their place”.

Steinmeier, who is so far left he is somewhat to the right of Atila the Hun, made his speech at the castle where the German post-war constitution was created has widely been seen as support for a ban after Thomas Haldenwang, the domestic spy chief, warned about growing Right-wing extremist influence in the party. In politicospeak this means the AfD's centreist position is starting to look like a threat to the globalist authoritarian establishment which has ruled through the SDP and CDU, two parties that while nominally of the left and right are in practice identical..

Mr Haldenwang said: “We see a considerable number of protagonists in this party that spread hate against all types of minorities here in Germany.”

Reports of a move to ban the AfD come amid warnings of the increasing influence in the party of Björn Höcke, AfD leader in the eastern state of Thuringia. 

Mr Höcke, a former history teacher, has been accused of using Hitler-esque rhetoric – although his critics have not provided a definition of what actually constitutes 'Hitleresque' but with Hocke's allies sweeping the board for European lists at the party’s conference in Magdeburg in August, leaders of the CDU and SDP, the parties that have most to fear from the AfD resurgence would probably tell you "Hitleresque is whatever we say it is."

In a rare move, the respected Der Spiegel news magazine weighed into the debate with a leader titled: “Ban the enemies of the constitution!” This headline is indicative of the level of scaremongering the establishment are willing to use to stop AfD and by extension the level of fear the upstart p[arty inspires in the establishment.

Spiegel warned that “the AfD has become more and more radicalised. It’s time to defend democracy with better weapons”.

The co-leader of Olaf Scholz’s ruling Social Democrats also said a ban should be considered if the AfD is categorised as a group of “proven Right-wing extremists” by the Federal Office for the Protection of the Constitution.

It is a pity that the people branding AfD as 'fascist', 'fr - right' and 'a threat to democracy do not provide examples of the Party’s policies and beliefs that are considered to be “far right”. In the UK anybody who speaks of wanting to protect borders, believing that there are only 2 sexes, wanting to keep more of our hard earned money and believing in preserving British culture, values and sovereignty are all considered “far right” and the policies propounded by AfD for Germany and smeared by establishment parties are broadly similar.

In fact there is nothing unconstitutional about any of the AfD's policies, even their immigration policy, which is committed to ending the 'open doors' approach to border controls favoured by the E U and former Chancellor Merkel is not contrary to the German consitution, but is highly popular with German voters tired of seeing their cities and towns overwhelmed by oversexed, under - educated young males recently arrived without passports or any form of identification from assorted third world shitholes. Germany's immigration crisis started when the US / NATO / EU sponsored ISIS insurgency destabilised Syria sent hoardes of fit young men running for Europe.Those Syrians have now been joined by multitudes more from Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, Africa (North and Sub Saharan,) Albania and varios east European nations.

One has to stop here and ask what did Hausfrau Volksfuhrer Merkel expect would be the fallout after she INVITED a million Syrians in FFS!!! Non-EU immigration, yes you know the ones, is destroying Europe, and the locals are finally waking up to the knowledge that they are effectively being replaced by people with no Connection with the nations and cultures they are arriving in, and with completely different values to Western societies and an often hostile attitude to the laws, customs and traditions of their host society, particlarly with regard to the behaviour of women in public.

Although I have never lived or worked in Germany and therefore have no first hand experience of German politics I confidently predict that banning the AfD would not solve the problem of non - integrating immigrants who demand their own laws be applied. A sensible politician (so not many of these) would ask why do over 20% of voters support a party which has been the target of a vicious propaganda campaign to discredit it and brand it fascist, neo - Nazi, far - right, and undemocratic, and thus, what’s most likely to increase or reduce that support. **** Continuing to ignore the concerns of its growing number of supporters while condemning scapegoating and discriminating against these voters as they have for 25 years has grown support to over 20% maybe it’s time for mainstream parties to actually deal with some of their real and heartfelt concerns rather than looking at fixing the political system to disenfranchise them.

In what way is the Afd a fascist party? Do you know what fascist means or the main characteristics of fascism?

1. Totalitarian one party state - No, that seems to be what the parties trying to ban the AfD are aiming for.

2. Ultra-nationalism. No, perhaps a touch of patriotism in a desire to protect Germany's culture, values, traditions, heritage.

3. Racial superiority - No, AfD is critical of Islam, and does not want its more fundamentalist versions to again dominance in Germany. That is about culture and ideology not race. Islam is not a race.

4. Dictatorial power - that seems what its political opponents want judging by their design to ban the second party in Germany according to opinion polls.

5. Control of industry and commerce - no sign of this either. I'm not aware of any plans to nationalise Germany's private industry.

6. Positive view of violence? No, if anything AfD politicians have been the repeated victims of violence from Antifa, for example one MP, Frank Magnitz, was beaten to a pulp by a group of Antifa thugs and rushed to hospital. Photos of his face were on social media, with the left applauding.

"Frank-Walter Steinmeier, the German president, warned in a speech to the country’s domestic intelligence agency that “we all have it in our hands to put those who despise our democracy in their place”.

Far be it from me to tell the German nation how to conduct their affairs but, if my admittedly untutored knowledge of history is correct, I seem to recall that Mr H was successful in politics because he capitalised on some very real problems the German people faced. That is not to deny they were not responsible for their own subsequent behaviour, but I think we have all been pretty shocked at how quickly and easily large proportions of many nations and their engines of authority, including our own, succumb to unscrupulous tactics which capitalise on understandable fears.

Perhaps, rather than assuming people on the right of the voting spectrum despise democracy, Mr Steinmeier might reflect that some of us, in the UK and surely also in Germany, are deeply concerned at the cavalier attitude towards it that our governments have displayed recently. He might turn his attention to why it is that the "far right" AfD appear to be gaining ground in the political field? Is he accusing his fellow countrymen of a lack of decency and discernment, or is it something to do with the way Brussels and the German government treat the people and some other governments of Europe? This is how thoughts that oppose the mainstream groupthink will be crushed by the elites; if the people use democracy to seek to overthrow the establishment, ban the instruments of opposition. AfD in Germany, Trump in US, Boris and Farage in The UK - see a pattern anyone?? The Dutch Farmers Party will be next to be called “Extremists” and so threatened with a ban. After all, if everyone who opposes net zero, or open borders is described as an Extremist, then they can all be banned “for the greater good” as the Germans would no doubt describe it….but then what? If popular resentment has no democratic expression, it is inevitable that there will be Revolution. These elites should learn from history….. Under Biden's FBI parents concerned about their schools giving their children LGBTQ+ pornographic cartoons illustrating a very young boy receiving oral sex are deemed far right domestic terrorists.

What Germany and France at the heart of the EU have been doing has now arrived at Berlin's own doors. That is, rearranging member states historic constitutional settlements to suit their own national interests. They've been doing 'hard' power deals with Putin and Xi while promoting a smokescreen of 'soft' liberalism to whip the member states into line. So Sweden had to break its traditional party blocs to keep out the Sweden Democrats, similar to the AfD. Until even that didn't work and a new govt contrived a side deal with the SD to avoid the accusation of being far right. We don't yet know how the upheaval in the Netherlands will serve that country. Poland, Hungary and other eastern European members supposedly have to toe the Brussels line while still trying to come to terms with their Soviet past. Never mind that shibboleths close to the heart of Berlin, Paris and Brussels are suddenly though grudgingly accepted as flawed.

So, what will Germany now do? Like the French, absolutely anything to save the misguided neoliberal, banker-Macroniste-Scholz-Shroeder line? Or take a good hard look at itself and think maybe addressing the democratic deficit would work better than trying to bend everybody else's will to a construct that has proved counter-productive time and again?

Well.. I wouldn't wager a penny on them taking up your final course of action. We all know that won't happen here either, unless our PM has more strength of conviction and cojones to do what he knows is right, rather than what his masters want him to do. Or maybe I credit him with more insight than he is capable of. Who are the fascists in this situation? The party that has 21% support, or the parties looking to ban them for being too popular. In democracies, people get the governments they deserve / want - so you have to have faith in the institutions to be able to manage whomever wins power and ensure that the system of government and the constitution is maintained. Banning your opponents actually only highlights that the powers-that-be have no faith in the current system and it also shows a complete arrogance towards to the will of the people and a failure to recognise why people are looking for alternatives (fur Deutschland!!).

How Science Is Done These Days

 This blog has long been a critic of what modern scientists tell us is 'The Scientific Method', particularly in the areas of environmental research and medical science. We are critical because we three cantankerous old gits who post the majority of content all benefitted in the 1960s from the renaissance model in education and therefore had the true definition of the scientific method of inquiry drummed into us. And we are constantly appalled by the shoddy working methods and lack of objectivity in what is passed off as 'science' today. It is gratifying to note that more and more people are now willing to voice similar concerns about the backstabbing, backroom deal making, self - interest and confirmation bias that are all part of the modern 'scientific method,' as is shown by the article featured below.

How Science is Done These Days

authored by Tony Thomas for Quadrant (Australia)

 There’s nothing new about mainstream climate scientists conspiring to bury papers that throw doubt on catastrophic global warming. The Climategate leaks showed co-compiler of the HadCRUT global temperature series Dr Phil Jones emailing Michael “Hockey Stick” Mann, July 8, 2004:

I can’t see either of these papers being in the next IPCC report. Kevin [Trenberth, a colleague] and I will keep them out somehow — even if we have to redefine what the peer-review literature is!

Thanks to a science whistle-blower, there’s now documentation of a current exercise as bad as that captured in the Jones-Mann correspondence. This new and horrid saga – again involving Dr Mann – sets out to deplatform and destroy a peer-endorsed published paper by four Italian scientists. Their paper in European Physical Journal Plus is titled A critical assessment of extreme events trends in times of global warming and documents that extreme weather and related disasters are not generally increasing, contrary to the catastrophists feeding misinformation to the Guardian/ABC axis and other compliant media.

The witch-hunt has Australian elements. Last September, The Australian’s environment writer, Graham Lloyd, highlighted the paper (paywalled) and its conclusion that the “extreme events emergency” was overblown. Sky News Australia, which twice reported the study, picked up more than 400,000 views and thousands of comments. ... Continue reading >>>



Environmentalists Hype The Summer Heat, Ignore The Winter Chill And Call Ity Science
According to Daniel Turner, founder and executive director of the nonprofit climate change scepticism advocacy group Power the Future, who insists that environmental activists are hyping up heat events such as the hot weather parts of the United States and southern Europe seeing right now.

Scientists says Nuclear Is The Way Forward For Clean Energy - Do Ursidae Defecate In Sylvan Landscapes?
Scientists, politicians and media have been screeching, for the past 30 or so years, about the need to transition away from carbon based fossil fuels, (coal, gas and oil,) as a matter or urgency or risk destroying the life supporting ecology of our planet by overloading the system with Carbon Dioxide (CO2) emitted from human activity. Next they'll be informing us, in their lofty and condescending way that yes, bears do actually shit in the woods.

Thanks To Global Warming Policy It's Going To Be a Long Cold Winter For Many
Those of us who were intelligent enough to point out the scientific fallacies behind the global warming scare and the idiotic failure of logic on the part of politiciansbfar too ready to believe the scaremongers and pursue a policy that made developed nations in northern Europe reliant on an unpredictable and uncontrollable energy source like wind for energy are vindicated as Europe braces itself for power shortages this winter due to coal and oil fired power stations being closed to 'reduce CO2 emissions'.

Out Of Touch Elites Are Destroying Civilised Society Society With Net Zero Obsession And No Plan B
How good it must have felt for politicians to set those lofty goals, knowing that someone else must deal with the cost and the implementation? But now the bills are now arriving, and they’re bringing a world of hurt. To sum up: Western policy elites have embarked on the electrification of society, replacing hydrocarbons in housing and transport, but without the technology to replace it well.

Climate Scaremongers Have Taken Over Where COVID Scaremongers Left Off
Boggart Blog can announce that the winners of our coveted Scaremongering Bollocks of The Month award goes this month to BBC News. Not only did the BBC report in one of their regular climate catastrophe scare stories that river levels across the UK have been at record lows, they broadcast that news story on the same day as The London Weather Centre announced that March 2023 was set to be the wettest March since records began.

Debunked: The Great Renewable Green Delusion
The war in Ukraine has not caused the global energy crisis of early 2022 byt merely exacerbated it. Currently the nations currently in conflict with Russia over its incursion into Ukraine are those which are most dependent for their energy needs on Russian oil and gas. And now their loonytoons 'net zero' green energy policies have failed they are biting the hand that feeds them.

Freak Weather Around The World Begs Questions
With Britain and other parts of northern Europe basking in unseasonably warm temperatures which are forecast to last for a few days, while parts of the USA gring to a halt under a blanket of snow dumped by freak storms are, accoring to climate scarmongers, a signal that irreversible warming had arrived, it is perhaps timely for a hot topic from ten years ago, geoengineering came under the microscope again. This report from Global Intel Hub seems a good way to kick off the debate. ... Continue reading >>>

A few weeks ago this blog reported a Swedish study which showed that natural immunity provides much better protection against infection by the SARS2-COV virus which causes COVID (COrona VIrus Disease,) than the Pfizer vaccine which is currently hyped as the most effective on the market, though it is no more effective than the others at provinding immunity. The more responsible voices in mainstream media that actually reported the story described by the news as “a bit of a bombshell”.

Latest Bill Gates Insanity: Injecting Sulfur Into the Atmosphere Will Cause EnvironmentalDisaster
A study published in November by the University of Pennsylvania exposes the insanity of projects such as spraying particles of sulphur compounds into the stratosphere, self - anointed vaccime messiah Bill Gates' latest scheme to “save” the planet with "geoengineering" According to the mathematical modellers Gates pays hansomely to provide him with "scientific" data to persuade politicians to spend taxpayers money on projects run by companies his "charitable foundation" has invested in. Far from saving the planet this latest idiocy is actually destroying environments. Continue reading >>>

We Told You So - Government-funded Report Confirms World’s Largest offshore Wind Farm is UnprofitableA report commissioned by the Norwegian government has contradicted Boris Johnson’s recent claim that offshore wind costs have fallen by 70% in a decade. The report also blows a huge hole in Johnson's grandiose pledges to the COP26 conference that offshore wind power would propel Britain to its net - zero target for Carbon Dioxide emissions well before 2050, the target set by the climate conference for achieving that target.

Proof That The Alarmist Claptrap You Are Hearing And Seeing At COP26 Climate Conference Is A Load Of Bollocks
The Arctic ocean is warming up, icebergs are growing scarcer and in some places, the seals are finding the water too hot, according to a report to the Commerce Department yesterday from Consul Ifft, at Bergen, Norway. Reports from fishermen, seal hunters and explorers all point to a radical change in climate conditions in the Arctic zone. Expeditions report that scarcely any ice has been met with as far north as 81 degrees 29 minutes. Soundings to a depth of 3,100 meters showed the gulf stream still very warm ... Continue reading >>>

Europes Tractor Protests Spread To Germany And Now Include Fishing Trawlers
Hundreds of farmers have descended in their tractors on a small German coastal town to protest measures imposed by the European Union as part of the bid to 'save the planet' by reducing CO2 emissions from cow farts. 400 tractors reportedly gathered in Büsum on Wednesday to protest what is probably the most insane environmentalist policy dreamed up by the EU idealogues to date ...

Germany Forcing Farmers To Use LESS Fertilizer To Satisfy EU’s Green Agenda
The German government, already reeling from the public backlash against rising fuel prices, the shortage of gas since supplies from Russia were cut off, and the biggest economic crisis in the EU, has now jumped on another 'woke' bandwagon.

Germany haemorrhaging cash to keep country running on as ‘net zero’ becomes zeroeconomic activity
Germany was so desperate to achieve 'net zero' CO2 emissions that for years the country's government closed its fossil fuel-fired and nuclear power plants,replacing those plants with wind and solar power — as well as impoorting huge volumes of natural gas and oil from Russia. After the Russian invasion of Ukraine in February 2022, when NATO (aka the U.S.A.) mandated that the West impose retaliatory sanctions on Russia, including a ban on importation of Russian gas and oil, Germany found itself in a hole:

The Truth About Coal And The Lies Of The Elite
So much for all the COP 26 banter late last year. Let me remind you. The elites all flew in on their private jets and promptly told us we’re all (royal we) getting off fossil fuels and killing coal.So how’s that turning out? The usage of coal is now at record highs:

Net Zero Will Lead To The End Of Modern Civilisation, Says Top Scientist
In a recently published science paper, Dr. Wallace Manheimer said Net Zero would be the end of modern civilisation. Writing about wind and solar power he argued it would be especially tragic “when not only will this new infrastructure fail, but will cost trillions, trash large portions of the environment, and be entirely unnecessary”.
