The crackdown is on “enemies of the state” … racists, xenophobes, anti-Semites, and other enemies of liberal democracy in the Federal Republic of Germany, or as my old friend Dr. Brandt once called them, the “Bastardstate.”
Note: This ties into the previous discussion about Black Republicanism in the French Revolution and whether liberal democracy is a natural enemy of European peoples.
” (Reuters) – Nearly 1,000 police officers raided clubhouses and apartments of known neo-Nazis in western Germany on Thursday after a ban was placed on three violent far-right groups in the country’s most populous state.
Ralf Jaeger, interior minister of North-Rhine Westphalia, announced the ban as part of an intensified crackdown on neo-Nazis in the industrial state. Police searched 146 premises, confiscating weapons, computer hard drives and election posters of the far-right National Democratic Party (NPD).
“(The objects seized) expose the tight bonds within the far-right scene,” Jaeger said, referring to the relationship between the NPD and groups of violent militants known as “Kameradschaften”.
Jaeger called the groups affected by the ban “xenophobic, racist and anti-Semitic”, adding: “They employ fists and knives against their political opponents.”
