However, since the victim was a member of the Bavarian chapter of the AfD, and the assailants were leftists, the story was under-reported. Chancellor Merkel will therefore not be denouncing the left-wing extremists of Passau any time soon.
Last year, a fake “manhunt” in the German city of Chemnitz made the headlines, after an Antifa group lied about migrants being chased down by right-wing “racists”. The mainstream media and politicians — including Merkel — repeated the confabulation despite warnings by intelligence officials that the story was fake.
During the real manhunt in Passau, a member of the Young Alternative of Bavaria was subjected to overwhelming verbal abuse by leftist extremists. And after being pursued across the university property, he received substantial injuries of the upper body and neck caused by blows and strangling grips. The attackers gave way only after the victim escaped into a large group of students.
Criminal charges against the Antifa attackers are currently being filed.
The victim had intended to attend a presentation by the higher education group LUKS (so-called “List of Independent Critical Students”) at the university. The incident mentioned above occurred when the member was identified as a critic, even before the beginning of the presentation.
The Young Alternatives for Bavaria, the youth wing of the AfD, has demanded a complete clarification of the situation and follow-through of all necessary steps by the university administration. This may mean that LUKS will no longer be able to continue operating on campus as an academic interest group.
The state chair of the Young Alternatives of Bavaria, Sven Kachelmann, added: “The link of LUKS with the violence-prone Antifa scene is evident, not just in this case. Academia will lose nothing by losing something that can only be regarded with revulsion by defenders of free speech.”
While the Campus Alternative — affiliated with the Young Alternatives — continues to be denied use of the facilities of the University of Passau, leftist academic groups make use of taxpayer funds to use the same facilities in order to wage partisan warfare against those who think differently.
After the assault on a fraternity in the previous week, they complained in a press release about a “hunt for dissenters” on the Passau campus. The authorities are expected to respond with “complete education” measures against the organising group.
According to police, the incident took place on June 6 at about 8:05 pm, in the context of a lecture by the left-wing student group LUKS. They had invited Andreas Peham, an employee of the Documentation Archive of the Austrian Resistance (DÖW) to speak about alleged “right-wing extremist activities in fraternities”.
One fraternity member was discovered in the audience however. The student was hounded chased down and assaulted by a group of masked persons. The police headquarters of Lower Bavaria confirmed the incident on request. Five people are being investigated on suspicion of inflicting dangerous bodily harm.
The JA Bayern said the university should intervene as soon as possible, because the “networking of ‘LUKS’ in the violent Antifa scene […] is evident” not only in this case, they say.
In their proposed measures, the patriotic youth group noted that left-wing groups are “motivated by party politics to fight against dissenters”.
Left-wing extremists also attacked a community center of students of the academic fraternity Markomannia Vienna Deggendorf. Unknown culprits vandalised the premises, according to a press release of the police Passau. On the sidewalk in front of the house, the vandals left an Antifa symbol. The damage is estimated at several hundred euros.
In an interview with the victim, a member of the Academic fraternity Markomannia Vienna Deggendorf, it was revealed that parties on the left regularly side with so-called moderates against patriots.
“They pushed me, grabbed me and beat me and beat me.” Even when he was able to save himself by joining a larger student group, the Antifa thugs surrounded him and demanded that he hand over his mobile phone, fearing that he might have incriminating footage on them.
Despite his ordeal, the victim was able to uncover extensive cross-links in the left spectrum. “Violence and crime are not a moral dilemma even for the moderates, but at most an image problem.”
A left-wing politician allegedly openly talks about the destruction of AfD election posters he said, although it is a criminal offense. Also violence against patriots was repeatedly discussed.
Events “open to anarchy and public hostility” is also commonplace at the local politician’s office. The victim is also sure that “the border between the moderate and radical left is extremely vague”.
He added: “There are a variety of radical, anti-constitutional and undemocratic structures that seem to be completely ignored by the state”. It is “dangerous to close your eyes to left-wing violence”. This is omnipresent in Passau he says, although the city is “not known for its hard left-wing scene”.
