Germany looking to ban political opponents

Germany’s Federal Public Prosecutor General’s Office could be looking to charge opposition party politicians with “high treason” for their attendance at a “secret meeting” in Potsdam, where participants allegedly discussed a plan to deport foreigners.

According to German news publication Junge Freiheit, the investigation is based on a criminal complaint filed by a private individual who accused the participants of the meeting of high treason under Section 81 of the German criminal code. If convicted of such a crime, individuals can serve a minimum of 10 years in prison, if a prosecutor can prove the individual “endangered the existence of the Federal Republic of Germany” or wanted to abolish “the constitutional order” by using or threatening violence.

So far, Germany’s top prosecutors are only exploring the possibility of charging the AfD politicians present with treason, and no charges have yet been filed.

This is backwards. The migrants are ndangering the existence of Germany, not the politicians seeking to do something about them.

NPR radio reports:

As the election year gets underway, a conspiratorial narrative typically circulated by fringe movements has come to dominate mainstream Republican discourse on immigration, extremism researchers warn. Specifically, they say that rhetoric used by Republican officeholders about the surge of migrants at the border with Mexico increasingly echoes the "Great Replacement" conspiracy theory ...

The Great Replacement narrative, rooted in white nationalism, posits without basis that a powerful cabal of elites are deliberately replacing white Americans with immigrants. ...

Within extremist circles, the desire to capitalize on the migrant surge has been churning for months.

There really is a crisis at the border, and the Democrat Party is firmly in favor of bringing in as many non-whites as possible. Americans are really being replaced by non-white foreigners at a rate never seen before.

I've heard this music before.

Leftists (all flavors of collectivism) are very odd creatures. They scream and rant about tyranny and oppression, and all they are opposed to and hate... then go out and do it with mindless zeal and intensity, then blame everyone else for what they did...and then wait fifteen minutes before they rinse and repeat.

The twentieth century buried well over a hundred million people in the ongoing progressive project of following this stupidity. It looks like the twenty-first century is going to be even worse.

In fairness, Germans have experience with fascist movements and I wouldn't be too quick to question their concern.

In fairness, Germans have experience with fascism because historically, they WERE the fascists...that actually raises concerns it doesn't lay them to rest.

When one political party basically pronounces the other illegal... what do you call it? Democratic socialism? A fair election?

I call it a dictatorship.

Robin Williams: I was at a German talk show once (and they asked) "Why do you think there isn't so much comedy in Germany?"

And I said: "Did you ever think you killed all the funny people?"

Just as not every American is a Trump loving yahoo, so too not every German was a fascist supporter. It's best not to carelessly generalize.

Well over eighty million lives were snuffed out because of Germany's fascist government, and some of those lost souls were in my family. That's not a careless generalization of anything you ignorant child.

Perhaps you should stick to your health, the weather, 'celebrity gossip','fantasy baseball', and other profound topics worthy of your vast experience.

So members of your family were killed, as were some of mine BTW, and yet you still support the existence of fascist groups today. That's some higher order thinking that this ignorant child doesn't understand but it's par for the course I suppose.
