German secret service operates fake accounts to lure ‘right-wing extremists’
Anyone who criticizes the German system is quickly labelled as an "extremist". But because the state still has not found enough "right-wing extremists", it has decided to help a little bit.

The Office for the Protection of the Constitution apparently maintains fake accounts in social networks, which serve the purpose of creating a certain mood.
Online hate speech in the pay of the state
As the Süddeutsche Zeitung (SZ) reported, the German Federal Office for the Protection of the Constitution is now running hundreds of fake right-wing extremist online accounts. Massive investments have been made in the campaign since 2019. That means: Agents paid by the state – i.e. financed from tax money – bully and agitate on social media, and are even allowed to commit crimes.
There are said to be so many that they have to coordinate in order not to shadow each other while they increase the record of alleged “right-wing extremist crimes”, mostly “propaganda crimes” actually.
What do they do?
These agents post racist slogans on migrants as well as hated “system politicians” and “traitors to the people”.
In addition to supposedly right-wing chat groups, the professional “troll group” primarily targets social media channels of Islamist, but also the “ideological conspiracy” milieu.
In order to gain the trust of other users, you have to come across as authentic as possible. “In order to be really credible, it’s not enough to share or like statements from others, you also have to make statements yourself. That means that the agents also bully and agitate.”
According to the agent, many victims of these infiltration methods had no idea how many accounts in their chat groups are now being run by agents for the protection of the constitution.
There are now so many fake accounts operated by the authority that nationwide agreements are necessary. Otherwise, they could target each other. But there is no doubt that the enormous mass of fake accounts is necessary, according to the Secret Service.
Over time, there is a growing danger among the fake right-wingers that they may become convinced by the ideas and slogans they simulate seriously and “succumb to the narratives there themselves”. A high-ranking spy officer conceded to the SZ: “Anyone who moves in a ‘closed worldview’ all day long must always work to keep their distance.”
The system’s ‘divide and conquer’ strategy
The fact that the “Alpine Pravda” as the SZ is known, is now coming out with this news, is presumably about possible coming unrest, because the system fears protests in autumn and a subsequent “winter of anger”. By spreading information about “countless spies”, they are trying to fuel a situation in which dissidents accuse each other of working for the state.
It is in essence a divide and rule strategy, an ancient principle of sowing distrust.
‘EU has instruments against right-wing parties’
In fact, EU Commission President Ursula von der Leyen (CDU) has confidently alluded to such “tools” that the EU has at its disposal. She spoke of certain measures against Italy in view of the possible victory of the right-wing parties in the parliamentary elections on Sunday. “We will see the result of the vote in Italy. If things go in a difficult direction, we have tools like in the case of Poland and Hungary,” she said.
Not only online infiltration, but rule-of-law mechanisms provide for money cuts for member states that violate “EU values”. Such proceedings have been under way against Hungary since April.
Von der Leyen’s comment met with outrage
The leader of the conservative-leaning Lega, Matteo Salvini, was outraged by the statement made by the Commission President. It was a “disgusting and arrogant threat” against his country. Von der Leyen represents all Europeans and is also paid by them. According to the Ansa news agency, the Lega MPs in the EU Parliament now want to have the statement checked. The CDU politician should apologize for making such threats, he said.
In recent polls, an alliance of Lega and the right-wing party Fratelli d’Italia is way ahead. The leader of the latter, Giorgia Meloni, is its lead candidate.
Von der Leyen threatens the Italians: “We will see the result of the vote in Italy. If things go in a difficult direction, we have tools, as in the case of Poland and Hungary.” A desperate attempt to influence the vote in Italy that runs towards the far right.

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.
Brits Forced to Live in Darkness and Cold
Food prices are rising at a furious pace, fastest in Scotland in almost half a century. At the same time, energy prices are at record highs. People are forced to choose between freezing or going hungry, and a majority of Scots are forced to live in cold and darkness to cope with bills. Old generations' tricks for saving and keeping warm are returning. Nevertheless, it is feared that 10,000 Brits will die of cold homes this winter. We present the Swedish Public Health Agency's guidelines on indoor temperature. Governments in Europe are introducing rationing and monitoring of food purchases. Net-zero emissions are a lie that, in practice, de-industrializes the West and dramatically lowers our standard of living.

Lisbon opens borders to all Portuguese speakers
LisbonNot only the German and Italian governments keep opening new paths for immigration. Portugal, too, has opened a Pandora's box and is paving the way for possibly millions of non-European immigrants to the EU – something which is not mentioned by the mainstream media.
Illegal immigration to Italy has reached its highest level ever
RomeIn Italy, despite the overwhelming right-wing electoral success in September, there is still nothing to be seen of the promised asylum turnaround – on the contrary. Giorgia Meloni has been in office for five months, but the arrivals of migrants in Italy have doubled compared to the previous year.
Dismantling diplomacy with ‘feminist foreign policy’
BudapestGerman Foreign Minister Annalena Baerbock (Greens) wants to counter German security issues abroad with feminist politics. Gender training, LGBTQ events and quotas are now part of their new guidelines, which are intended to bring about "cultural change". The German ambassador to Hungary, Julia Gross, provided an embarrassing example.
