Germany: New record set for Monday walks against forced vaccination

With 1 568 walks and demonstrations, more places in Germany took part in the Monday demonstrations than ever before. A week ago it was around 1500. And particularly noteworthy: More and more people who have been vaccinated are mingling with the critics of the measure.

    An estimated 10 000 people took to the streets in Cologne, it was reported on Telegram. Three weeks ago there was “next to nothing going on,” said one participant. For news outlet Spiegel, who has called the protests a “mental plague”, this was certainly not good news.

    It is allegedly only “a small, radical minority” revolting against Corona measures, according to mainstream politicians and the media. The new Chancellor Olaf Scholz (SPD) said in his government statement to the Bundestag on 15 December 2021: “We will not put up with a tiny minority of disinhibited extremists trying to impose their will on our entire society. We will counter this tiny minority of haters, who attack us all with torchlight marches, with violence and death threats, with all the means of our democratic constitutional state. Our democracy is a defensible democracy.”

    It’s not a ‘tiny minority’

    In effect, the chancellor had declared war on the people he described as a “tiny minority”. To get to the bottom of this question, commissioned a representative survey from the opinion research institute INSA. Some 2 107 people from Germany aged 18 and over were asked the following question online or by telephone: “How do you feel about the following statement? I have sympathy for the walkers who want to use it to show their criticism of the current Corona policy.”

    The result was enlightening: While the media and politicians give the impression that only a vanishingly small minority of people have sympathy for the anti-vaxx demonstrators, according to the survey this was true for 29 percent – almost one in three. Even if a majority of 55 percent said they had no understanding for the so-called “walks”, it also highlighted that 45 percent did not condemn the demonstrators.

    The result also showed that Germany is divided, contrary to Chancellor Scholz’s assertions of a united front against vaccine critics.

    The fact that 29 percent explicitly expressed understanding was a big surprise. All the more so since such an admission requires courage. By way of comparison, the SPD received 25,7 percent of the vote in the Bundestag elections. If one calculates the turnout based on the proportion of SPD voters among those eligible to vote (allowing no foreigners), it is 19,5 percent. Assuming there are 70 million adult inhabitants in Germany, according to the survey, around 20 million adults have sympathy for the protests – while only just under 12 million voted for the SPD in the 2021 federal election.

    In this respect, Scholz’s words about the “tiny minority of disinhibited extremists” show how his grasp on reality is slipping.

    The age distribution of the responses is particularly interesting. An unusually steep gradient is evident in the 60-plus age group: Respondents aged 60 and over, said that they felt no sympathy for walkers (73 percent). In no other age group do more than 50 percent express this view. Notably, most of these citizens use public media as their only source of information.

    Only among AfD voters did an absolute majority have an understanding for the peaceful demonstrations (72 percent). Among the voters of the other parties, with the exception of FDP voters, a clear majority had no understanding for the protests.

    The result of this poll is a slap in the face for Scholz, the big parties and the big media.

    Antifa attack innocent in Leipzig

    On Monday evening there were random assaults and mobbing in Leipzig against skeptics protesting Corona measures, but also against completely uninvolved passers-by. A self-proclaimed “anti-fascist action alliance” has been registering numerous counter-rallies and trying to radicalize the left spectrum of Leipzig society.

    For January 10, the network Leipzig nimmt Platz announced the “end of patience” and announced 16 meetings in downtown Leipzig, to coincide with the walks of vaccination skeptics.

    Instead of the expected 160 counter-demonstrators, around 300 appeared, and somehow the official restriction of ten participants per meeting is being ignored by law enforcement.

    DESTRUCTIVE HAILSTORMS will become more frequent and violent with increasingly larger hail, predicted solar researcher Valentina Zharkova back in 2019 when she stated that it's one of many signs of an impending Grand Solar Minimum. This is exactly what we have witnessed this year in both Europe and the world. Here is the German town of Benediktbeuern in Bavaria after a hailstorm on August 26th. Almost all rooftops and cars were damaged. The centuries-old church and monastery were damaged for the first time ever. Interestingly, the monastery was rebuilt in 1699 during the Maunder Minimum. Combined with heavy rainfall, extreme weather will devastate a significant portion of our food production. For instance, heavy rainfall destroyed a quarter of all crops in Greece in just two days in September. However, mainstream media remains silent. Photo: X @safe0007/Sandor Feher

    NOAA Predicts Zero Sunspots for Almost the Whole 2030s

    CLIMATEThe United States' government scientific organization, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), predicts zero sunspots from 2031 to 2040. This is an extreme situation that has not occurred in as long as humanity has been counting sunspots, and it leads us into uncharted territory in terms of our solar system. However, this prediction aligns with the warnings of the world-renowned solar researcher Valentina Zharkova for many years, who indicated in 2019 various signs of this catastrophic phenomenon, including the extreme hailstorms we have seen in Europe and the world this summer. The forecast and various observations this year give cause for very significant concern. In this unique analysis, Free West Media explains why.

    NATIONALIST COLLABORATION TAKES SHAPE. Six parties met in Budapest on August 26th to sign a joint declaration confirming the friendship and political unity among the parties. The goal is to either form a new group in the European Parliament after the EU elections in June next year or to reconstitute the existing Identity and Democracy (ID) group with the new parties.

    European Nationalist Parties Forge Cooperation Ahead of EU Elections

    EUROPEAN ELECTIONSOn Saturday, August 26, representatives of six European nationalist parties gathered in Budapest. The meeting was initiated by the Hungarian party Mi Hazánk and took place in the national parliament. Representatives of the parties signed a joint declaration that not only reaffirms the parties' friendship but also their unity on a range of complex political issues. A surprisingly clear and radical manifesto was established. The hope is that this cooperation will lead to success in the EU elections and eventually result in the formation of a group in the European Parliament. For Swedish nationalism, this meeting marks a success as Sweden, for the first time, has a party represented in a leading nationalist cooperation in Europe. Free West Media was present at this historic event.

    Swedish Weapon Takes Down Russia’s Best Attack Helicopter

    The Russian attack helicopter Ka-52 is considered one of the world's best and has struck fear in Ukraine, where it has hunted down tanks and other armored vehicles, often beyond the range of many light anti-aircraft systems. However, it has met its match in the Swedish air defense missile system RBS 70, which has quickly led to significant losses for the Russian helicopter forces.

    Alternative for Germany held its conference during the last weekend of July in the thousand-year-old city of Magdeburg, located by the Elbe River in the eastern German state of Saxony. The first of the two conference days began with a strong program speech by the party's male spokesperson. Subsequently, party officials were elected and motions were addressed. The second day was entirely devoted to candidate selection and positioning for the EU election in June next year. Screenshot: AfD on Facebook

    Strong Confidence in German AfD

    Alternative for Germany (AfD) held a party conference on July 29-30 to select candidates for the upcoming EU election next year. EU Parliament member Maximilian Krah, belonging to the party's more radical, ethnonationalist faction, was appointed as the top candidate. The party's two spokespersons delivered powerful speeches criticizing the EU's failed migration policy and trade sanctions that isolate Europe and Germany from the rest of the world. They argued that it's time for the EU to return a significant portion of its power to national parliaments. However, they have dropped the demand for Germany to exit the EU.

    Maximilian Krah is one of the AfD politicians who is singled out as an ethnonationalist, as he has stated that there is a distinction between ethnic Germans and immigrants who have obtained German citizenship. Krah is a Member of the European Parliament and AfD's top candidate for the upcoming European Union election next year. Still image: AfD on Facebook

    The Establishment Wants to Ban Germany’s Second Largest Party – for the Sake of Democracy

    The rising popularity of AfD has raised strong concerns within the establishment. Despite lies and demonization in the media and isolation from the overall political establishment, the party continues to grow. Certain representatives of the party are accused of becoming increasingly "extreme," and in an unusual move, the influential weekly newspaper Der Spiegel demanded that AfD be "banned."

    FvD was quick to support the protests against covid restrictions. Today, the party also stands behind the farmers protests against the governments’ plans to close a big portion of the farms in the country for the sake of “climate”.

    Publisher of Unique Literature Worldwide Blocked by International Distributor

    Arktos has distinguished itself by publishing groundbreaking philosophers and social critics. Now, the publisher's international distributor has abruptly terminated the cooperation, and more than 400 already printed titles cannot reach their audience. There is strong evidence that the distributor has been under pressure, something that has also happened in Sweden. We have spoken with Arktos founder Daniel Friberg about the ongoing struggle for freedom of speech in a shrinking cultural corridor.
