The media is flooded with the story of the arrest of seven men who were supposedly plotting a terror attack on the 3rd of October, which is the holiday to celebrate the reunification of the country after the Cold War. If possible, I would just run with it as it is and compare it to the prevalence of violence in other groups or think about ways to bring the crazies that do exist on the conservative side of the political spectrum under control. But I just .... can't.
This is too much BS. I have gone through this before. It was the Franco A story. They throw out something that is highly emotional and preposterous, and they keep spinning it into ever more ridiculous claims. In the end you cannot make any sense of it no matter how hard you try, and I do try. The more absurd their stories are, the more they point their finger on "conspiracy theorists". Well, I hate conspiracy theories, but can I, please, PLEASE, be told lies that are somehow plausible.
The current status of the new story is that seven men planned the mentioned attack. It was supposed to kill at the same time political and cultural leaders, and foreigners. The media reports are unclear. Maybe, the mentioned attack was meant to kill only the VIPs and some other potential attacks were targeted at foreigners. I can get my head around this so far.
But then the media phrases it like it is an attack on people who think differently. Every terror attack is. The point of a terror attack is not that people think differently, but that some different behavior is wanted from them. What they think is irrelevant. Yet, they phrase it to say, "See, right-wingers are the ones who don't tolerate other point of views." And this is clearly not the case. Then WELT claims that the aim of the attack were to remove the judicial system (Rechtsstaat).
This is where I lose my sh*t. So far we have been told that immigrants and policy makers/propagandists of immigration were the targets, not judges, not court buildings, not police stations. It would also take a lot of bombing to bring down the legal system. Are these seven men stupid enough to think that they can do this all by themselves? Although, the state prosecutor says that the attack is planned for the day after tomorrow, they have found NO WEAPONS! (I leave the sticks and stones nonsense aside.)
It reminds me how the Franco A case disintegrated very quickly. Okay, WHAT is now your story? What writings have been found about the motivations? Are the suspects against immigration or do they want to abolish the legal system? WHAT?
Like the Franco A case, I am getting a bit suspicious. As you can read here, the planned terror attack unravelled into an incohesive narrative with absurd twists and turns that just very conveniently ticked all the left-wing talking points. It made no sense, but it became some buzz about something evil in the military with Nazis and poor activists as potential victims, a coup d'etat with a vintage Wehrmacht pistol, while false flagging Muslims at the same time ....
This one starts with "right-wing leaders from Chemnitz" and will most certainly run its full course of madness again. In a second WELT article they are already alleging a coup d'etat. At this point it is impossible not to believe in some conspiracy theories. And this is what they want. They want to drive us apart by seeing more and more of us become speculative. We must not give in. At this point, we just say that MAYBE Chemnitz is the gate of hell and coincidentally a terror group confirms all the fears of the left. MAYBE, they try to end the justice system by killing singers. Maybe, they are just complete morons. Maybe. Please, just don't come up with too much speculation! It will be exploited.
This follows a week in which ZEIT and Tagesspiegel (both of publisher Holzbrinck) ran stories on how right-wing violent crimes were supposedly undercounted by the police. They just reassign random murders. One prominent case that they included is the terror attack by a former Muslim of Iranian descent who was bullied in school for having left Islam. The left makes it out to be that the bullying Muslims are innocent and right-wing propaganda had let the men to shoot up Munich in 2016. It is impossible to go through their low-profile cases, but I bet that they are equally dishonest about them. They just claim that everybody who disagrees with them is a physical threat and must be attacked, sometimes also physically.
There was not one conviction that came out of the Franco A story. Yet, we are told again not to "play it down." WELT quotes communist MP Kerstin Köditz with:
The fact that the new cell was created in Chemnitz also shows the extent to which the racist radicalization took place in this place - and that the danger of neo-nazi violence is highly present.
The woman's position is anti-fascism speaker of her party. Her party, LINKE, ran the dictatorship in East Germany and build the wall in Berlin, which was called the "anti-fascist protection wall" at the time. LINKE was previously named SED, the acronym for Socialist Union Party of Germany.
