German spy agency warns of ‘terror threat’ due to Corona protests
The head of the North Rhine-Westphalian domestic spy agency, Burkhard Freier, has warned of "terrorist tendencies" in Corona protests. People who demonstrated against the Federal Government's draconian Corona measures are in the cross hairs.
Such people “obviously had the feeling that they were being threatened. This can result in individual terrorism – in other words, radicalization without being in a real-world group,” Freier told regional daily the Rheinische Post.
Burkhard was convinced that there was a threat of serious attacks due to “conspiracy theories“. “If you add the impression of not being alone anymore, others think the same way, then it leads to Christchurch, El Paso, Halle and Hanau,” he explained, recalling recent terrorist attacks. In doing so, “a conspiracy ideology was always in the background as a very important motive”.
Therefore, his authority does not see the current Corona protests only as an expression of the concerns of citizens. Such people are essentially anti-democratic: “These protests are a sounding board for extremists.”
At the end of August, almost 40 000 people demonstrated against the federal government’s Corona measures in Berlin. At that time, the occupation of the stairs of the Reichstag building by some demonstrators caused a stir.
