    “My stepfather suffered a head injury and the facade of the house is damaged,” Dominik B told Berlin weekly Junge Freiheit on Monday, describing the extent of the attack.

    The 26-year-old used to be an active IB member and, among other things, took part in an information campaign. Antifa noted on the information portal Indymedia that he heads the IB local branch in Konstanz. But that’s not true, said Dominik B.

    Around 60 hooded Antifas marched through the streets of Konstanz to his parents’ house on Sunday afternoon. They carried a red banner with the inscription “Counter the shift to the right – organized, consistent, determined”. The 26-year-old reported that he was not at home at the time.

    The attack on his family’s row house began around 3:30 pm. The rioters had thrown numerous eggs and bags of red paint against the yellow house facade and filled the mailbox with construction foam. In addition, the words “Nazi” were sprayed on the entrance area in front of the house. Photos of the extent of the attack has been taken, but for the protection of the family’s privacy they cannot be published.

    The target’s stepfather faced the anti-fascist mob, which then attacked him. The attackers hit the 49-year-old man in the head. Meanwhile, one of the masked people is said to have tried to snatch his mobile phone from him. When more and more residents got involved, the left-wing extremists fled.

    “The neighbors reacted well and shouted to the masked people to leave,” said the young man. The criminal police are investigating the case.

    The stepfather had to be treated because of the head injury and was taken to hospital due to head trauma and bruises.

    A family with four young children were among the residents. The children were extremely shocked by the attack. In addition, the Antifa is said to have left “outing posters” in the neighborhood, on which they described Dominik B as an “active neo-Nazi” and disclosed his address.

    The EU ignores neutrality, provides funding to undermine political foes

    BrusselsCountries in the EU are theoretically bound to the neutrality obligation in its use of tax revenues: The taxpayer's money must not be used for political purposes. But just as the German government wants to spend 1 billion euros in the next four years on the so-called “fight against the right”, the EU is funding a network of “civil society” NGOs that represent clearly left-wing politics, actively combatting conservative politicians and their parties – Matteo Salvini and Viktor Orban are but two examples.

    Seven dead after Corona vaccination in German old people’s home

    MiesbachThe most important lesson to be drawn from the Corona crisis appears that it has become a great risk to be a retirement home resident. If one is assigned to such an institution, one invariably gives up basic human rights. At first it was "only" the restrictions on freedom of movement and contact with loved ones that the elderly had to endure, but now it is the Corona vaccination, which one can hardly avoid in these custodial institutions.
