Don’t Protest! You might be exploited by Nazis!

‘The mood is heating up’: Germany fears strikes will play into hands of far right
Angry protests by farmers, hauliers and railway workers risk being exploited by populists such as Alternative für Deutschland

Which is, of course, to get it the wrong way around.

Also, equally obviously, AfD are not Nazis.

The right way around is that the strikes are a sign of discontent with current policy. Therefore, in order to not allow the Nazis a chance, it is current policy that should change.

  1. Ah yes, the good old non existent far right threat.

    This deflection is so obvious it makes me wonder who actually is stupid eough to believe it, seeing as just about all ant semitism comes from RoP and the Left.

    A few years ago, the BBC ddf a smear n’ hatchet job on Geert Wilders – their most damning accusation ? He was a supporter of Israel.

    Anyway if we want anyone in charge it should be Alice Weidel – the Servalan of German politics.

  2. It’s wonderful how the guardian journalist in Berlin finds one farmer in Lower Saxony who supports the idea of farming using solar energy! Eugyppius offers a more interesting analysis.

  3. Ah TMB

    I saw one on telly a while back. He is in Rhineland Pfalz somewhere. His masterplan was to have solar panels on very tall stilts and with some soacing between. That means he could grow apple trees underneath and gets two lots of income from the same field.

  4. Remember a few years ago when Merkel invited a million Middle Easterners into Germany, and they promptly did mass rapes of German women on New Year’s Eve?

    Well, it’s become an annual tradition in Germany.

    This year, the squareheads were boasting – boasting – that there were “only” 300 arrests and 50-odd injured policemen.

    No mention of the rapes, but perhaps German women now know better than to walk the streets in Germany.

    It has always seemed to me possible, and even probable, that there would be a resurrection of Islam and that our sons or our grandsons would see the renewal of that tremendous struggle between the Christian culture and what has been for more than a thousand years its greatest opponent. – Belloc.

  5. How would we know if Europe was in a pre revolutionary state?

    The symbolism that German farmers chose to express their discontent with the government in the first days of the new year was as unambiguous as it was ominous: by the side of rural roads across the country, there were sightings of makeshift gallows dangling traffic-light signs, a reference to the colours of the three governing parties.

    Knowing what we do about Davos Man’s plans and how they’re going to affect everyone’s lives, do we think the immiserated natives will get less restless over time, or…?

  6. “Therefore, in order to not allow the Nazis a chance, it is current policy that should change.”

    But, but… the current policy is holy writ and sacred handed down by even greater powers than The Powers That Be. If the policy changed the World would end.

  7. What happened to PEGIDA and the NPD (now Die Heimat)? Genuinely nazi parties imv which barely register a seat anywhere. Just not popular enough I suppose, so as there’s a space for perjorative descriptions over that end of the spectrum, the lazy journos move the descriptions in to the next party which is AfD.

  8. Bloke in North Dorset

    Latest survey in Germany has the CDU/CSU Union on 33% and AfD on 22% with a portion of the Union threatening to break away and work with the AfD because nobody else will.

    Its like Brexit in a way. The more they accuse citizens of being fascist and racists for having concerns about immigration and shortage of services the more they drive them in to the AfD. The lesson from elsewhere is invite the AfD in and they’ll moderate their views with the responsibility of government because they now that only a small % of their base are rabid Nazis.

  9. Our press is happy to follow tiny tales from American politics while ignoring big stories from the Continent. It’s an odd sense of priorities given that it’s the Continentals who share, ahem, certain social problems with us.

    Bloke in Pictland,

    They can speak the language, give or take and easily follow US politics as they’ve been brought up on a diet of American TV and adverts and think this gives them an insight it to America psyche.

    On the other hand they’d have to put in the hard work of learning the language before they can even start to think they can understand the culture of European countries.

  11. In the UK uniparty system, choosing between Conservative and Labour is like choosing between Ariel and Persil. But this analogy falls down because Persil and Ariel actually do what they say they’re going to do, so I need a better analogy 🙁

    As Tim says, if we continue to deny people the ability to express their views at the ballot box, and get them implemented, they will turn to other methods. Methods that some won’t like much.

  12. @Chris Miller

    The major parties in the UK are all just different aspects of the establishment blob. Tories, Labour, LibDems – two cheeks of the same arse and the hole in the middle.

  13. OttoKring: I saw one on telly a while back.

    In case you haven’t seen it elsewhere, this photo suggests that the farmer in Rheinland-Pfalz and the guardian’s one in Niedersachsen don’t fully represent the mainstream opinion of farmers.

    Might I suggest the difference between a Ouija Board and a Seance..? Neither of them can do what they offer, just like political parties.
