Germany’s Corona grifters to go after bank accounts of ‘right-wing extremists’

According to calculations by the German ifo Institute for Economic Research, the Corona pandemic has already cost 330 billion euros. "This corresponds to an economic loss totaling ten percent of economic output in 2019," explained Ifo economic researcher Timo Wollmershäuser this week.

    For comparison: The German budget in 2019 was 356,5 billion euros and the total gross domestic product of the Czech Republic was around 220 billion euros at the time.

    “Without the crisis, the German economy would have grown by 1,3 percent in these years,” emphasized Wollmershäuser. The economic slump caused by the pandemic is “the worst economic crisis since the Great Depression in the 1930s”. The consequences of the upheaval included higher national debt and poorer education. However, losses such as those in the education sector cannot yet be quantified in economic terms.

    Since the beginning of the pandemic, economists had warned of long-term economic damage. A survey by the Allensbach opinion research institute recently showed that a majority of Germans were afraid of a financial and economic crisis because of Corona.

    Corona grifters plan to double down

    But anyone who dares to speak out about the monumental bill, is smeared as a “right-wing” agitator and Interior Minister Nancy Faeser (SPD) has announced an action plan against “right-wing extremism”.

    The plan will be implemented by Easter, Faeser said on Wednesday in the Bundestag. “Right-wing extremism is the worst threat to our free and democratic basic order,” warned the Interior Minister.

    “And that’s why fighting right-wing extremism is our top priority. We will do everything we can to better protect the people who are threatened and attacked in our country. We are a resilient democracy. We fight the enemies of the open society.”

    She complained about “mental ammunition” prepared for extremist perpetrators. “These hustlers know what they are doing. They have supporters who spread misanthropy and racism from within our parliaments.”

    Going after the bank accounts of critics

    Faeser’s plan is similar to that of Justin Trudeau’s in Canada: in order to “stop radicalization and smash right-wing extremist networks”, the German government will go after the money of their critics. “We will trace the extremists’ financial flows and take away their sources of income, and we will very consistently disarm them.”

    In Canada, Trudeau has been freezing bank accounts without due process or legal recourse, and has threatened to take away protesters’ children and kill their pets. In fact, civil rights were completely discarded the moment Trudeau invoked the Emergencies Act.

    The Democracy Promotion Act which is being prepared in Germany, will also consistently combat adversaries of the leftists by deploying the police and security authorities, while increasing the already overwhelming flow of leftist propaganda. “It is also the responsibility of all of us as a society. That is why we will strengthen social commitment, political education and the prevention of extremism.”

    Unsurprisingly, Faeser plans to launch the renewed attack from the Family Ministry: “That’s why Family Minister Anne Spiegel and I will quickly get the Democracy Promotion Act off the ground.”

    Left-wing extremism, on the other hand, has been dismissed as an “overblown” problem.

    Any critic is a ‘right-wing extremist’

    The media, parties and associations in Germany work systematically to blend the differences between conservatives and the extreme right, so that any criticism becomes synonymous with “extreme right” and vice versa as is happening in Canada.

    Marco Mendicino, Canada’s public safety minister, announced that four Albertan truckers who had been charged with “conspiracy to murder police officers” had “strong ties to a far-right, extreme organization with leaders who are in Ottawa”.

    When asked to identify the organization, he could not. When asked again, he pointed to “rhetoric”. Pressed further, he conceded that he had made up the link to the Ottawa convoy leadership, and then suggested that the information came from some Canadians on “social media”.

    Thus the minister’s  claim of “a public safety threat in Ottawa” on which the emergency powers were predicated, was rubbished – by himself.

    No transparency while ‘promoting democracy’

    The German Ministry of Finance has meanwhile refused to list the contacts of former finance minister and current Chancellor Olaf Scholz (SPD) with lobbyists in the financial sector. The authority has rejected a request for freedom of information by a subsidiary of the citizens’ movement Finanzwende, reported German magazine Spiegel. This is justified by claiming that it allegedly took great effort to put together the lobby appointments.

    The Berlin Administrative Court also followed the arguments of the Ministry of Finance’s lawyers to keep the appointments secret.

    The activists, on the other hand, demand that the ministry create transparency about Scholz’s lobbying appointments. “Instead, one flimsy justification for rejection after the other is presented,” Finanzwende campaigner Lena Blanken told the Epoch Times.

      So now the working classes are right wing extremists and the supporters of the Davos Cult are the left wing who just want to keep us all safe. Over the past 60 years my views haven’t changed but how I am required to define myself has. Before they were keeping me safe from terrorists they were keeping me safe from commies. I was a left wing extremist for opposing the Vietnam War. Now I’m a right wing extremist with a heap of ‘anti’s.

      We live in interesting times.
