Suspected left-extremists target another AfD parliament member

On Tuesday suspected left-wing extremists committed an attack on the car of the office manager of the AfD Bundestag MP Volker Münz. On two wheels, they removed two wheel bolts and loosened two more.

    The vehicle had been in a parking lot in Baden-Württemberg’s Göppingen, Münz told Junge Freiheit on Thursday. He and his coworker had not noticed the manipulation of the wheels at first. They were on their way to a political event.

    Since the car was parked close to a wall, the perpetrators could not get to the other tires. Otherwise, the bolts might have been removed on the other wheels as well, Münz added.

    The police have begun investigations into the case, which is considered a political offense. State security is involved in the search for the perpetrators, the Südwest Presse noted.

    Münz suspects that left-wing extremists are behind the incident. “This insidious attack represents an escalation of left-wing extremist violence. The endangering of the life and health of my co-worker and myself is acceptable to them.”

    The situation was initially “scary”, but now he sees the attack in “a little more relaxed” way, said Münz. “I’m not intimidated by that. That reinforces my work.”

    It is not the first attack on the AfD politician. Last week, his home in Uhingen and his constituency office in Göppingen had been stained with paint bags. On the left-wing extremist platform Indymedia “anti-fascists” were aware of the crime.

    Münz believes “leftist violence against persons and things” is bolstered by mainstream trivialisation. “I expect this to end. I hope that the perpetrators and masterminds will be investigated soon,” he said.

    But left-wing extremists are increasingly planning cyberattacks against state institutions and business enterprises. This emerged from a confidential situation assessment by State Security, which is available on Focus Online. Already in April, a left-wing extremist group on Indymedia made an international appeal.

    Under the slogan “Hack the system!” sympathisers are to train themselves to become computer hackers and attack state structures. Anarchism must “conquer the digital world”. Even if left-wing hackers had “carried out first revolutionary acts in cyberspace”, this resistance was “still too low and must be steadily expanded”. Hackers should train others to form network gangs to advance a “libertarian attitude in cyberspace”.

    According to the report, the threats came from abroad. State Security takes them very seriously. Should such attacks succeed, “immense dangers threaten both all highly sensitive security areas of state institutions as well as commercial enterprises such as banks, armaments industry etc”. The financial damages would be “barely manageable”. Added to this would be the great symbolism of such attacks.

    According to the authority, the left-wing scene has “some know-how in the entire IT sector”. For a nationwide or worldwide network war, however, they would have to recruit “very well-trained IT specialists and above all hackers”. At the present time it is still questionable whether this will succeed.

    Safety sources confirmed to Focus magazine that left-wing extremists are increasingly turning to the fight against “digital repression”. At the end of March this year, the Vulkangruppe NetzRerrschaft rupture had committed an arson attack on data and power lines in Berlin-Charlottenburg.

    The damage was incurred in the millions. The letter of confession stated that “important network connections were cut off and thus access to our lives was interrupted”. The Federal Prosecutor’s Office is investigating the group on suspicion of anti-constitutional sabotage.
