Police fear left-wing violence: AfD party conference cancelled

Leftwing violence in Germany is on the rise. The operator of the Carl Benz Arena in Stuttgart has terminated the contract for the state party conference on July 2 and 3 with the AfD Baden-Württemberg, as dpa reported. They said that several hundred officials and water cannons would be needed to secure the party congress.

    Stuttgart

    The AfD state association, which is led by the chairwoman of the parliamentary group, Alice Weidel, now wants to go to court.

    The police expect that the left-wing scene from the Bad Cannstatt district of Stuttgart plan to disrupt the party congress. “We cannot be held responsible for personal injury and damage to property,” said a police spokesperson.

    AfD: ‘We will never accept that’

    The AfD has announced legal steps. Party spokesman and Vice President Markus Frohnmaier told the dpa: “The termination is completely unjustified. A threat to security does not emanate from the AfD, but at most from violent left-wing extremists.” If a legal and democratic party like the AfD can no longer hold party conferences due to such a threat, “we have reached a pre-democratic state. We will never accept that and will therefore sue the dismissal in court.”

    It is not the first time that the AfD has lost event bookings that had already been secured. The background is always massive threats from the leftist scene against the operators of the premises. The party had expected 800 to 1000 guests for the conference. The delegates are to elect a new state executive after parliamentary group leader Alice Weidel announced her withdrawal from the body.

    Growing signs of leftwing terror

    The federal state of Brandenburg currently has no bigger problem than “right-wing extremism”. This is what Brandenburg’s Interior Minister Michael Stübgen (CDU) says with regard to figures on the development of extremism in 2021, which he made public at the presentation of his annual “Report on the Protection of the Constitution” in Potsdam on 13 June 2022.

    And somehow AfD members and Corona sceptics are supposedly also involved in this, i.e. the current official enemies of the state of the first rank, against whom the police and secret services repeatedly warn the public.

    The Ministry of the Interior of the state of Brandenburg has put a publication on the internet on the subject of “politically motivated crime in the year 2021 in the state of Brandenburg” which is remarkable. On the second page is a table showing a steady increase in political crime in the state of Brandenburg over the last 10 years.

    However, the details of the table cannot be easily reconciled with the current statements of the CDU Minister of the Interior, Stübgen. According to this table, “right-wing” crimes are essentially stagnant and were more numerous in 2019 than in 2021, while “left-wing” crimes rose sharply in 2021 compared to 2020.

    The largest part of the increase in PMCs (Politically Motivated Crimes) in 2021 was accounted for by offences that were “not assignable” in the rightwing scheme.

    Michael Stübgen could have presented the public with a completely different picture of the situation. But that was obviously not politically as expedient.
