University offers master’s degree against the ‘right’

Labelling unwanted political critics has become a field of study. The University of Marburg in Germany offers a master's degree against the "right". Exclusion and discrimination against those with a different opinion will soon be studied at the Philipps University in Marburg.

Published: May 21, 2022, 2:05 pm

    In the coming winter semester there will be a master’s degree course on “Fighting Right-Wing Extremism” that is “unique in Germany”. Such specialists are currently particularly needed, said Tina Dürr, who is developing the course.

    Last year “there were more crimes with a political background in Germany”. But even the Tagesschau admitted that the reasons for this increase in politically motivated crimes “cannot be assigned to either the left or the right spectrum”.

    The streamlined study program is aimed at people who already have professional experience in the fields of mobile counselling, social work or political education. According to the university, the master’s degree should enable them to counter right-wing extremism, racism, anti-Semitism and other forms of “group-related enmity” more effectively and improve help to “victims”.

    In an interview with Tina Dürr, it quickly becomes apparent that actually the “opponents of the Corona measures” are targeted in particular because they had “expressed themselves in a right-wing extremist manner”.

    Among other things, theories on “right-wing extremism”, research and monitoring as well as “advice” are to be drummed into the graduates.

    The course is organized by the Department of Education at the University of Marburg and the Hessen Democracy Center located there. It is designed for a maximum of 20 people.

    ‘Right wing’ inexorably tied to mass immigration

    It is no secret that higher numbers of asylum seekers mean increased support for right-wing political parties. Researchers in Germany found that regions where more asylum seekers and refugees live are fertile electoral ground for right-wing parties. The Leibniz Institute for Economic Research (RWI) pointed to recent studies indicating that parties like the NPD, the anti-immigration Die Republikaner (Republicans), Die Rechte (The Right) and the AfD (Alternative for Germany) thrive in regions with high numbers of immigrants.

    Despite this, the red-green-red Berlin government wants to create a “capital of immigration and refuge with a heart“. That is why Franziska Giffey (SPD), the governing mayor, is now proposing to simplify naturalisation in the capital. The procedures are to be processed in a new naturalisation centre. According to Giffey, around 800 000 people in Berlin are affected; so far, only around 6 000 are naturalised each year.

    “I am sure: 20 000 naturalisations a year are possible,” said SPD parliamentary group leader Raed Saleh. In particular, Saleh wants to process so-called old cases, i.e. of illegals without a German passport who have lived in the city for a long time or even for generations.  “You have to break the chain of toleration and frustration and create a perspective,” Saleh said. “People are here, they stay here, they are at home here.”

    Immigration tied to crime against women

    For Germany’s left-wing showcase city, the rise in crime is however a resounding indictment: Not even half of all crimes in the capital are solved. According to the latest police crime statistics (PKS), in 2021, out of a total of 482 127 crimes committed in Berlin, a perpetrator was identified in just 218 621 cases. This puts Berlin’s crime clearance rate at only 45,3 percent.

    Admittedly, there are considerable differences. In the case of violent crimes, the clear-up rate is relatively high even in Berlin. Of the total of 100 cases of murder and manslaughter, which the police also count as attempted offences, 96 were solved. In the case of reported bodily harm, the figure was 81,3 percent, and in the case of sexual offences, 70,6 percent.

    In contrast, crimes with low clearance rates are much more significant – because they occur more frequently. For example, 100 homicides and 6650 sexual offences (of which only 4693 were solved) as well as 39 318 bodily injuries (of which only 31 970 were solved) compared to a total of 179 455 cases of theft. Of these, only 39 030 cases could be solved, which corresponds to a rate of a meagre 21,7 percent.

    Between March and the beginning of July 2020 alone, Berlin police registered 210 cases of “gang or particularly degrading rape“. In just under half of the cases, the police are investigating foreign suspects. This means that in Berlin, on average, almost two women are victims of severe sexual violence every day. Among those affected were 50 minors up to 16 years of age, including 16 children.

    The percentage of foreign criminals is much higher than the population share of foreigners on the Spree, which Statista put at 19,2 percent for the previous year.

    Anyone complaining about this turn of events, is likely to be labelled a “right wing threat” by the academics of Marburg.
