Fake Nazis?

A German daily has been forced to correct their headline about the "Nazis" present during a march for a murdered citizen in Chemnitz recently.

    The Bild newspaper published a report with the title, “Chemnitz, who knows these Neo-Nazis?” with pictures of three people doing the Hitler salute.

    The Hitler salute was documented, but on social media, users since claimed that the Nazi saluters were not “right-wing extremists”, but in fact “provocateurs” who were introduced by left counter-demonstrators or “the media”.

    One of these pictures showed a man with a RAF tattoo on his hand. The RAF (Red Army Fraction) is a left extremist terror group. Footage and photos show how the man acted as a right-wing supporter to discourage people and to put conservatives in a bad light.

    T-online has now posted, in the category “on our own behalf” a correction on their coverage about Chemnitz, specifically the “right-wing” demonstrations that occurred there last week, titled, “Correction to our Chemnitz Coverage”.

    The publication noted: “We published a picture of one of the Hitler saluters in a photomontage which was incorrect. After reexamining the photograph and comparing it with other similar images, we have come to the following conclusion: On the hand of the demonstrator pictured the characters “RAF” are in fact clearly recognisable.”

    They explained further that the RAF or Red Army Fraction is a left extreme terror group which was active from 1970s until the 1990s and had killed 33 people. According to T-online, the tattoo was believed by demonstrators to be evidence that the man in the photograph was a planted provocateur.

    On social media, users noted: “These days RAF tattoos are the latest craze with Nazis” and in another tweet: “Always these evil Nazis with their R.A.F tattoos XD”.

    Another account used the image mocking the German Interior Minister riling against Nazis: “What does Mr. #Maas say about a #link that shows #Hitlergruss even though he has a #RAF # tattoo?”

    The German state broadcaster ZDF reported on Sunday about “activists” who wanted to prevent a funeral march for a deceased German killed by migrants in Köthen. It seems that anyone who expresses mourning and sadness for a co-citizen who dies, is a “Nazi” to the left-wing thugs if the perpetrators are foreigners or even “refugees”.

    While the establishment and the propaganda media continue to adhere to the image of the “brown Saxony” and report fake news, two Afghans killed a German on the Karlsplatz in Köthen, Saxonia-Anhalt.

    The police reached the scene about five minutes after the incident. The two Afghans were arrested on suspicion of murder and interrogated with the help of an interpreter.

    The 22-year-old victim was first taken to a hospital. According to a report in the newspaper Die Welt, the young man in the hospital was visited by his brother, a supposedly convicted “right-wing extremist”. This claim happens to be unverifiable, since neither the name of the deceased nor the brother was mentioned.

    Also, the question remains whether this has anything to do with the act and the murder.
