Merkel sycophant wants to strip critics of all fundamental rights

A former General-Secretary of Chancellor Angela Merkel’s Christian Democratic Union (CDU) wants to strip German anti-immigration supporters of their fundamental rights to free speech and free assembly.

Published: June 24, 2019, 11:23 am

    Peter Tauber, an MP for the CDU in the Bundestag, noted in opinion piece for German newspaper Die Welt, that the Alternative for Germany (AfD) should be blamed for the murder of Walter Lübcke, a pro-immigration politician.

    “The AfD in the German Bundestag and in the state parliaments contributed to this. With the dissolution of the language, they have paved the way for the dissemination of violence.”  Tauber said “the political climate of this republic has changed as well”.

    He accused AfD members – including co-chair Alice Weidel – of being “complicit in the death of Walter Lübcke due to a language that is uninhibited and leads to violence”. Lübcke had received death threats after he said critics of Merkel’s asylum policy should leave Germany.

    In combating so-called “right-wing extremism”, Article 18 of the German constitution should be applied to strip anti-immigration supporters of their free speech, free assembly, property rights, privacy of communication, and freedom of the press, since they do not follow the “free democratic basic order”.

    “Article 18 is today an instrument not only against right-wing extremists but also against all others who are also committed to the fight against our freedom,” he claimed.

    The Merkel sycophant Tauber has staunchly been defending her very unpopular asylum policy, also in his own party. Tauber once told critics: “Those who are not here for Angela Merkel, is an asshole and can leave.”

    But in 2009, he described himself in an interview with the Berlin weekly Junge Freiheit as a “conservative advocate”.

    Tauber clearly believes that critics of the Federal Government’s asylum policy should be deprived of all their fundamental rights because they disagree with him. He even singled heavyweight Max Otte as having contributed to the Lübcke murder. Otte is an economist and professor at the University of Applied Sciences Worms. He is also head of the Cologne-based IFVE Institut.

    Otte accurately forecast that the US property market and subprime securities would spark a financial crisis in 2008. He listed several causes of the crisis as being the rise in debt since the beginning of the neo-liberal revolution in the US, excessive globalisation and demographic challenges.

    Tauber has also affirmed his allegation that Erika Steinbach, former president of the Federation of Expellees, is co-responsible for the death of Walter Lübcke. “You are to blame for his death,” Tauber said.

    Meanwhile, the number of violent incidents committed by left-wing extremists rose by a staggering 88 percent from 2012 to 2017.

    But Tauber also completely ignored malicious Antifa attacks on AfD politicians, including the deadly assault on Frank Magnitz earlier this year in Bremen. And strangely enough, Tauber’s claims were never heard when Islamists murdered Germans on their own soil. He has also never suggested abolishing the fundamental rights of radical Islamists.

    The murder of Lübcke is now being used to silence party-political competition from the right as well as from unpleasant internal critics in his own party like former spy chief Hans-Georg Maaßen.

    In the wake of Tauber’s hysterical rant, CDU leader Annegret Kramp-Karrenbauer has spoken out against cooperation between her party and the AfD. “I’ll ask the federal board tomorrow to give me the power of attorney (…) to check every means to really prevent cooperation and rapprochement with the AfD,” Kramp-Karrenbauer said on Sunday evening during an interview on German broadcaster ARD.

    A CDU politician from Saxony-Anhalt has joined Maaßen in demanding that the CDU not rule out future cooperation with the AfD.

    But Kramp-Karrenbauer said Maaßen or any other member of her party who believes in cooperation do not have a conscience. “Any party member who speaks of this must ask himself how this can be reconciled with his conscience,” she said.

    In addition, the CDU boss contradicted demands for a shift to the right in her party: “The CDU is right where it belongs – in the social center. And it will stay there as long as I’m in charge. ”

    According to a new report from a watchdog on anti-Christian incidents, Germany witnessed thirty anti-Christian attacks between April and June this year.

    The data was compiled by the Observatory on Intolerance and Discrimination Against Christians in Europe.

    A large number of the cases involved arson and vandalism against religious institutions, including the Lutheran Nikolaikirche in Caldern, a church in Mannheim and the St Marien Catholic Church in Bremerhaven.

    In the Osterfeld Protestant Church in Berkheim, Esslingen, gaming consoles, a digital camera, and an SLR camera were stolen from the youth centre.
