German government plans measures against ‘queer hostility’

The German government's "queer" commissioner, Sven Lehmann (Greens), has presented a catalog of measures against "queer hostility". Lehmann sent a relevant draft to associations and ministries of the federal government for further coordination.

    The “National Action Plan for the Acceptance and Protection of Sexual and Gender Diversity” would like to promote “legal recognition”, “participation” and “security” of LGBTQ people more, as reported by the German Press Agency dpa.

    According to the draft, security authorities are to record “hate crimes” based on gender or sexual orientation separately in the future. Projects against sexism and “queer hostility” are to be promoted in schools and in sports. Furthermore, there are plans to regulate costs for artificial insemination to have children, including for unmarried and same-sex couples. For “gender-fair language” the “establishment of a body for the formulation of recommendations for the public service” is demanded.

    Bypassing a vote in the Bundestag

    In the coalition pact, the traffic light parties had already agreed to develop such an action plan to be decided later this year. A prioritization and the implementation of the various cornerstones should then take place. According to the coalition agreement, the traffic light wants to expand the equal treatment article of the Basic Law to include a ban on discrimination based on sexual identity.

    The draft of the action plan proposes that the government seek a “dialogue with the Bundestag and the federal states about a corresponding draft law” because the two-thirds majority required for an amendment to the Basic Law in the Bundestag and Bundesrat is considered extremely unlikely.

    “We’ve come a long way in terms of equality and acceptance, but still not far enough,” said Lehmann. With the action plan one wants to decisively counteract “queer hostility”. It will become “the agenda for a politics of respect,” predicted the “Queer” commissioner.

    Diverting tax money

    Aidshilfe Cologne and the gay health center Checkpoint honored Sven Lehmann for his commitment to the LGBT community, especially during the Corona crisis “for his demand for a rainbow rescue package for queer clubs, associations and organizations”. The campaign honors people, organizations and clubs who are committed to the interests of the community with the help of campaigns during the crisis.

    In a guest article in German daily Die Welt, Lehmann claimed that there were many genders and that the view that there are only two genders was “unscientific and homophobic and transphobic”. The biologist and Nobel Prize winner Christiane Nüsslein-Volhard contradicted his peculiar view in an interview in the magazine Emma. “Mr. Lehmann may have missed the basic course in biology.” The magazine Cicero dryly noted that it now seemed that Nobel Prize winners were needed to explain to the public that there are two biological sexes.

    Nüsslein-Volhard explained that basic biological principles unequivocally disprove transgenderism. “[A]ll mammals have two sexes, and man is a mammal,” said Nüsslein-Volhard, who won the 1995 Nobel prize in Physiology and Medicine for her research in early embryonic development.

    “There’s the one sex that produces the eggs, has two X chromosomes. That’s called female, and there’s the other one that makes the sperm, has an X and a Y chromosome. That’s called male.”

    Asked whether people can change their gender, the Nobel laureate dismissed the notion as absurd: “That’s nonsense! It’s wishful thinking. There are people who want to change their gender, but they can’t do it … People retain their gender for life.” People who believe they can change their gender “cannot impose their ideas on everyone as facts”.

    Dangerous gender notions

    Nüsslein-Volhard also warned of the dangers of prescribing hormones to try to achieve this. “The body cannot handle it well in the long run. Every hormone you take has side effects. Taking hormones is inherently dangerous.”

    Nüsslein-Volhard said the transgender view espoused by Lehmann was “unscientific”. Despite this, the German government began pushing for legislation to allow children as young as 14 to change their legal gender without parental consent.

    She said allowing children to “change their gender” was “madness”. She said young girls should be supported in their actual identities rather than encouraged to become like men.

    A new LGBTQ branch in Germany wants to decriminalise zoophilia

    To coincide with Lehman’s disconcerting policies, a rally took place in Berlin recently: The protesters, including the organisation Equality for All, demanded the “right” to have sex with animals.

    ZETA, a German zoophile-rights group, marched to highlight the persecution that zoophiles face. The civil rights group, Equality for All, participated in the protest as well, German tabloid Bild reported.

    Currently, it is illegal in Germany to engage in sexual acts with animals. Although it was abolished in 1969, it was reintroduced in 2013.

    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.

    Turkey Believes Sweden Hasn’t Done Enough

    Sweden will have to wait a bit longer for NATO membership, according to Turkey's Justice Minister Jilmaz Tunc. First, Sweden must extradite the "terrorists" Turkey wants and stop the desecration of the Quran.

    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”. The picture is from a protest against covid restrictions in Amsterdam in January of last year. Photo: Wion

    The Ursula von der Leyen Affair

    After a criminal complaint in Belgium against the President of the European Commission, the so-called SMS-case, now takes a new turn. The judge responsible for the investigation will likely gain access to the secret messages exchanged between Ursula von der Leyen and Albert Bourla, CEO of Pfizer, at least if they haven't been deleted.

    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.

    Care prompts bishops to criticize transgender ideology

    The Catholic bishops of the Scandinavian countries presented an open five-page letter criticizing transgender ideology on March 21, just before Easter. The document primarily expresses care and advice and was read aloud in Catholic churches in Sweden, Norway, Finland, Denmark, and Iceland. Cardinal Anders Arborelius, Bishop of Stockholm, is one of the signatories of the document.
