    The goal of the page is to report on left-wing extremist acts of violence as well as leftist ideology, networks and their funding.

    “We understand that on the one hand as an education, on the other hand as a campaign portal against the widespread left-wing extremist violence against democrats in Germany, which now appears to have become normal,” said the deputy Berlin AfD state leader Beatrix von Storch at the presentation of the project on Thursday.

    The aim is to create an overall picture from numerous individual pieces of information, to sensitize the public to the danger of left-wing extremism and thus to contribute to its fight against it.

    As a conservative party, the AfD advocates the rule of law and defensive democracy. Moreover, one is also to a large extent directly affected by extreme left-wing violence, emphasized Berlin’s state chairman Georg Pazderski.

    The widespread trivialisation of the phenomenon of left-wing extremism must be publicly opposed, its creators noted.

    One of the focal points of the page will be the disclosure of financial support. “Too much money from the state flows directly or indirectly to far-left organisations,” Von Storch complained. “We will not accept this without action.”

    Leftist parties have never distanced themselves from violent “anti-fascists”, but on the contrary have given them an extended hand. “We want to take a look at this gray area,” announced Von Storch, whose authoritative initiative goes back to “view of the left”.

    Those responsible will be the AfD-Landesverband Berlin. The city “suffers particularly from extreme left-wing violence,” board member Ronald Gläser told Berlin weekly Junge Freiheit. Cars belonging to AfD politicians have been reduced to ashes in arson attacks in the city, whole streets devastated and politicians threatened.

    In the past year alone, 1 223 politically left motivated crimes were counted. “It’s time to inform the public,” said Gläser.

    However, the “view of the left” is aimed at the whole of Germany. On the one hand press reports – especially of regional media – are to be consulted, but also the party’s own research will be conducted.

    In addition, users can contact the site managers with tips. Everything will be editorially checked, “there will be no quick fixes,” Pazderski said. Contributions from the state parliaments, for example through questions from the political groups, will also be welcomed.
