In yet another display of Angela Merkel’s “democracy,” the German state and the far left communist street thugs have teamed up in a concerted attack on the mildly “right wing” Alternative for Germany (Alternatief für Deutschland, AfD) party.
The AfD, which has been compared to Britain’s UKIP party, was launched in 2013 as a Eurosceptic party, but with the latest nonwhite invasion of Germany, they have adopted an increasing anti-invasion stance.
Recent opinion polls put them at close to 10 percent support, overtaking the “ex”-Communist party, The Left (Die Linke), and the liberal Free Democratic Party (Freie Demokratische Partei, FDP).
In the 2014 European Parliamentary election, the AfD won 7.1 percent of the vote and took seven seats in that parliament. It also acquired state funding after achieving representation in some of the federal state parliaments.
Seeking to expand its activities, the AfD then launched a business venture, selling gold on the Internet, earning the party an income of some several thousand euros.
The German Political Parties Act (Parteiengesetz) section dealing with state funding says that a party with representation at federal level will get state funding equal to that which it is able to generate from its supporters.
The German government coalition (consisting of the three largest parties—a usual alliance of conservatives and socialists) has now however proposed an amendment to the Political Parties Act which will specifically do away with matching state funding for party money generated through entrepreneurial activities.
The amendment is clearly designed to stifle the AfD’s fundraising ability, as it has no large corporate backers—like the three parties who have now ganged up on it—and relies only on its membership to keep going.
When the amendment is passed—as seems likely early in the new year—Merkel’s party and its allies will have effectively prevented the AfD from even raising a fraction of the cash which those parties have access to: “democracy” in action.
As if this legal harassment was not enough, the AfD also faces massive far left violence, which has included physical attacks upon its leading members, violent threats against hotels hosting its conferences, and even threats against private landlords renting residential properties to party leaders.
The recent AfD party conference in Hannover was a case in point. There were so many threats made against the party that the local police officially warned delegates not to go outside wearing any sort of identification which might lead the communist thugs to think that they were part of the conference. This, the police said, was necessary because the AfD members’ safety could not be guaranteed.
In addition, some communists found out where individual AfD members were staying, and issued so many threats against the hotels in question that the owners were forced to cancel the room bookings out of fear for their other guests’ safety.
In Leipzig, AfD leader Frauke Petry has found herself unable to rent residential property because no landlord has been willing to risk damage to the property by the communist terrorists.
The AfD is hardly a subversive party, or even, in controlled media terms, a “far right party.” It is at best, mildly “right wing”—but even this is unacceptable to the “democrats” and the communist street thugs, who seek to suppress all opinion except their own.
Even the German police are playing an active role in this matter: an observer pointed out that if anyone had dared to attack Merkel’s CDU party members at their recent conference, the police would have spared no effort to track down the perpetrators—and not just issue a “we cannot stop it” warning like they did with the AfD.
Thus the fraud of “western democracy” is exposed for all to see.
