Left-wing German politician exposed as possible link to hammer gang

With its special edition “Antifa - The underground leftist power”, COMPACT, a conservative German magazine has stirred up a hornets' nest. A left-wing politician even wants to have journalistic research banned.

    From her point of view this move is quite understandable since the 84-page special edition of COMPACT mentions the names of the perpetrators, the people behind them as well as the sponsors – an encyclopaedia of the criminal movement called Antifa.

    Left-wing politician Juliane Nagel, a member of the Saxon state parliament, is portrayed in detail – as the patron saint of the extremely violent far-left scene in Leipzig. As a result, she wants all reporting on this issue banned.

    COMPACT has reported extensively on Nagel’s contacts with the alleged anti-fascist couple Lina Engel and Johann Guntermann. The two are considered central figures in a sensational trial regarding the creation of a criminal organization. They are said to have committed brutal attacks on political opponents in several federal states of Germany.

    The weapons used in their crimes are hammers. They smashed the joints of their victims, patriots and dissidents, and punched holes in the top of their skulls and facial skin. The hammer gang of Antifa is in fact a death cult. Hooded extremists break into private apartments and assault the owners as Nagel publicly calls for squatting while the Antifa paralyzes entire districts.

    Before the radical couple from Stuttgart was arrested, illegally occupied houses, arson attacks with millions in damage, brutal attacks on police officers and those who think differently, death threats against politicians and business leaders, were ignored by law enforcement. The Antifa members were apparently able to do whatever they wanted.

    They have benefited from politicians who consistently ignored or played down the phenomenon of left-wing violence, and from security authorities who traditionally struggle to infiltrate the scene. With a few exceptions, the perpetrators generally went undetected and thus went unpunished.

    For the first time in 20 years a German federal prosecutor is once again investigating a left-wing extremist. While Engel – together with convicted terrorist Beate Zschäpe – is in jail, Guntermann went underground and may still be active in planning such attacks.

    This is the first comprehensive portrait of the criminal movement that has become a threat to democracy. As former left-wing Italian writer Ignazio Silone noted: “The new fascism will not say I am fascism – it will say I am anti-fascism.” Underground, the Antifa has turned from an always violent but initially marginal movement to a power in the state, an alliance of the elite.

    The extremists have infiltrated the institutions, the media, the music and cultural scene, the football clubs. Their thugs attack anyone who does not agree with them, whether it is the AfD, anti-vaxxers, Putin supporters or even the CDU. They burn down Bundeswehr trucks and attack police stations.

    One fact which is particularly suspicious is that the lawyer with whom Juliane Nagel wants to take action against COMPACT comes from the same law firm that represents Lina Engel. If politicians of the Left Party are actually in cahoots with the alleged terrorists, it would be a huge scandal.

    This may be the reason why the left-wing member of the state parliament wants to prevent journalistic reporting. Specifically, she is against a COMPACT article that explains how the violent Antifa is being trivialized in the media and politics.

    The Hessische/Niedersächsische Allgemeine (HNA), a regional newspaper published in Kassel, has reported several times about the Antifa politician because of her Hessian origin. The local newspaper often quotes the Leipzig left-wing politician Juliane (Jule) Nagel, who is known for her good contacts in the militant scene, COMPACT reported.

    “She speaks of ‘particular hardship’ against a woman against whom there is allegedly ‘hardly any incriminating material’. She herself only knew Lina Engel ‘fleetingly from political events in Leipzig’, as she claimed to the newspaper.” This is a bold lie, because COMPACT research revealed that Nagel visited Lina Engel’s fiancé Johann Guntermann during his imprisonment in the JSA Regis-Breitingen – accompanied by the young woman, a fact which has been confirmed by investigators.

    “The 27-year-old was serving a prison sentence there until September 2019, because he rioted in downtown Leipzig and beat up a Pegida demonstrator in Dresden and insulted him as a ‘Nazi bitch’. But that’s not all. According to the visitor list, Nagel is said to have even come to the juvenile detention centre several times, although prisoners usually reserve the short visiting hours only for life partners, family and close friends.”

    COMPACT continues: “Is the member of the state parliament more involved in the Leipzig hammer gang than she would like to admit? Does she possibly even know where the left-wing extremist Guntermann, who is still on the run, is hiding?”

    COMPACT has thus claimed to have hard evidence of Nagel’s contacts with the hammer gang as well as the web of money flows, but the MP has denied all the allegations. A court case could obviously reveal who has the better argument, but that is strangely exactly what Juliane Nagel does not want.

    She instead wants to ban COMPACT from reporting by means of an injunction. If she succeeds, it means that with any mention of her activities, COMPACT would be threatened with a fine of up to €250 000 and in the event that this cannot be paid, a prison stay for up to six months.
