Germany Bans 'Extremist AntiFa' Website For "Legitimizing Violence Against Cops"

While over 300,000 Americans have signed a petition demanding the US government formally recognize AntiFa a terrorist organization (and some 'cells' calling for "all-out revolution"), the US mainstream media continues to provide cover for the violent leftist organization (as do college professors). However, in Europe, German authorities have banned the most influential AntiFa website in the wake of violence that occured last month outside the G20 summit in Hamburg.

In an unprecedented move against violent left-wing extremism, Germany’s Interior Ministry informed the owners of the left-wing site about the crackdown Friday, the Local reported.

Interior Minister Thomas de Maizière claimed the website helped incite the violence in Hamburg and warned of “serious consequences” of left-wing radicalismthe New York Times reported.

“The prelude to the G-20 summit in Hamburg was not the only time that violent actions and attacks on infrastructural facilities were mobilized on linksunten.indymedia,” the minister said, identifying the website.

 

He also said the site tried to “legitimize violence against police officers,” which he described as an “expression of an attitude that tramples human dignity.”

 

“This is absolutely unacceptable and incompatible with our liberal democratic order,” he added.

Fox News reports that, according to the Local, Germany’s internal spy agency once described the website, which has operated since 2008, as the most important platform for violent left-wing extremism in Germany. For years it has been providing a forum for people to publish first-hand reports on left-wing crimes.”

The violent clashes between the Antifa and police led to around 476 police officers being injured, while around 186 demonstrators were arrested and 225 were temporarily detained.

The Interior Ministry said the website was shut down because it “goes directly against the law in both its aims and actions,” Spiegel reported.

The police, meanwhile, searched the properties connected to the owners of the radical website in the German state of Baden-Württemberg.

“At the moment several premises are being searched,” said Thomas Strobl, the state’s interior minister.

 

“This step marks a major blow against the extreme left in Germany,” he added.

Following the announced closure, the extremist website now directs visitors to a “what to do” article calling the government’s move an “authoritarian crackdown.” It also urges people to spread “revolutionary material and ideas everywhere” and come up with “alternative ways to communicate with each other and the general public in times of intensifying state censorship and control.”

Notably, as Ron Paul recently explained, the alt-right and its leftist opponents are two sides of the same authoritarian coin.

The alt-right elevates racial identity over individual identity. The obsession with race leads them to support massive government interference in the economy in order to benefit members of the favored race. They also favor massive welfare and entitlement spending, as long as it functions as a racial spoils system. Some prominent alt-right leaders even support abortion as a way of limiting the minority population. No one who sincerely supports individual liberty, property rights, or the right to life can have any sympathy for this type of racial collectivism.

Antifa, like all Marxists, elevates class identity over individual identity. Antifa supporters believe government must run the economy because otherwise workers will be exploited by greedy capitalists. This faith in central planning ignores economic reality, as well as the reality that in a free market employers and workers voluntarily work together for their mutual benefit. It is only when government intervenes in the economy that crony capitalists have the opportunity to exploit workers, consumers, and taxpayers. Sadly, many on the left confuse the results of the “mixed economy” with free markets.

Ironically, the failure of the Keynesian model of economic authoritarianism, promoted by establishment economists like Paul Krugman, is responsible for the rise of the alt-right and antifa.

While we should be willing to form coalitions with individuals of good will across the political spectrum, we must never align with anyone promoting violence as a solution to social and economic problems. We must also oppose any attempts to use the violence committed by extremists as a justification for expanding the police state or infringing on free speech. Laws against hate speech set a dangerous precedent for censorship of speech unpopular with the ruling elite and the deep state.

Libertarians have several advantages in the ideological battle over what we will replace the Keynesian welfare model with. First, we do not need to resort to scapegoating and demagoguing, as we have the truth about the welfare-warfare state and the Federal Reserve on our side. We also offer a realistic way to restore prosperity. But our greatest advantage is that, while authoritarianism divides people by race, class, religion, or other differences, the cause of liberty unites all who seek peace and prosperity.

Too little too late.Why did they allow it's existence for so long in the first place? Why the crackdown after the damage (G20 meeting in Hamburg) is done?Perhaps next month's elections have something to do with this supposed 'toughness' on left-wing extremism? /sarc

Which terrorists?One man's terrorist is another man's fredom fighter.Who decides?Terrorism is just some catch-all political branding.  If you break a law, you are a criminal - a perfectly good word to describe what many in these groups are. Left, right, Up, Down....if you are a criminal, you need to be arrested and charged, not allowed to roam free and continue committing criminal acts.  Your crimes should be investigated, and any accomplices arrested, too.  Really not complicated, if you take the politics out of it.

Kinda redundant though, don't you think. I suppose they plan on battling it out once they've killed off whitey. Funny how they can go around threatening and assualting people with no problems what so ever, but threaten cops, whose fucking TAXPAYER FUNDED JOB it is to deal with shit like this, and all of a sudden you get your site banned and labeled a terrorist group. Fuck all of us plebes, we deserve to get hit with bike locks and bags of piss, but threaten the badged ones and you get smacked down.

The discourse in this Criminal Fraud UNITED STATES, CORP. INC., & even amongst the Presstitute's would change practically overnight if an APB, "All Points Bullitin" along with InterPol was issued for the immediate Arrest & Apprehension of George Sorros.

Some are obvious paid Sorros Agent Provocateurs mixed in with actual Leftists. Others are perhaps different left over Occupy Wall Street groups which have spun off into Splinter protesting groups of their own.

You have the Anti Whites, Anti Capitalism, Anti Trump & Racism, BLM Groups. You have the Immigration, Pro Abortion, Pro Gay & Trans Whatever Groups being all sent into a fever pitch because of one person.

Pure Evil Criminal Psychopath Geroge Sorros.

The Psychological Operations being conducted on the populace mindset / Psyche is at a Fever pitch.

Historically, thats exactly what every Country that has ever fallen under the rule of Communism have in common.

Every regime attempted to eradicate that Countires Culture & Heritage to Indoctrinate future Generations in their new Image.

Communist achieved Genocide by Marginalizing Individuals within segments of Society by ostracizing their Identities to impose their own Ideology of Communism.

And, they all have one Ideology in Common.

They all favor Socialism & Nations without Borders.

It's much worse than that.  Not long ago, he publicly read a "White Devil" poem he wrote.  It was on YouTube, but he has since forced its removal.YouTube, being owned by Joogle, of course complied, notwithstanding that such a video is clearly in the public interest and usable as "fair use".Anyone who can find this video, please post a link.I won't say Kessler is an official plant, as I don't think intelligence agencies are so stupid, but nonetheless, he should obviously not be treated as a "leader" of Whites on anything.

" the University of Virginia has its own ties to the Ku Klux Klan from the 1920s. There was a chapter there of the Klan at the university. The Virginia Knights of the Ku Klux Klan pledged $1,000 to the University of Virginia for their centennial fund in 1929. This went unmentioned in President Sullivan’s letter. Also, the two main organizers of the rally on Saturday, the so-called Unite the Right rally, are graduates of the University of Virginia. Both Richard Spencer and Jason Kessler are UVA alums. "

who cares about ANTIFA????now this on the other hand...... https://www.reuters.com/article/us-usa-audit-army-idUSKCN10U1IG NEW YORK (Reuters) - The United States Army’s finances are so jumbled it had to make trillions of dollars of improper accounting adjustments to create an illusion that its books are balanced.The Defense Department’s Inspector General, in a June report, said the Army made $2.8 trillion in wrongful adjustments to accounting entries in one quarter alone in 2015, and $6.5 trillion for the year. Yet the Army lacked receipts and invoices to support those numbers or simply made them up.

@ trader,

No worries. The Pentagram will make it up on the back end if they can ever find that pesky 2.3 Trillion Rumsfeld declared missing the day before the False Flag of 911.

Oh, yea. Didn't a missle hit the exact area at the Pentagram's accounting Dept. investigating that missing 2.3 Trill.

Catherine Austin Fitts has got this covered many years ago. (Acounting puts me to sleep in 5 min. I have to trust CAF)The model is this.The Germans rightly dismissed Einstein's "Bent Nothingness" hypothesis. Even the Nobel prize committee wouldn't buy it. As a consequenc the Germans were on the right track and made fundamental advances in physics.We have been sold a Pup basically (Who woulda thunk that the Media lies?). So while we are off chasing squirrels in the woods like Black body radiation and Plank's "constant" and the wildly variable gravitational "Constant", Black Holes (Not Racist), Dark matter and a whole lot of other malarky the .mil have quitely gone ahead with the Real space race.However, these programs cost money. Funny how the accounts department at the Pentagon got hit in 911, innit? Well, that little solution to the over-buget (CAF has a wonderful accounting euphimism for pilfered money, "Unallocated".) has expired and now the problem arises again.Pro Hint. Don't live or work anywhere near an accounts department.

Occupied Germany is mirroring ANTIFA every day.RIP Ernst Zundel, God Bless you Ingridhttp://barnesreview.org/dr-lorraine-day-ernst-ingrid-zundel-story/https… a man from his home ...."as literally abducted at his Tennessee home; from that date, i.e. for the past 14 years, this man was to find himself gagged, completely unable to express himself on the subject that was his life’s work: to cleanse Germany, his country of origin, of the false accusations by which she is overwhelmed. After seven years in prison, amongst which two in Canada in conditions close to torture and the rest in Germany, he would have to pass a probation period of three years, but the 10 years of silence were not to stop there: in order to maximise his chances of obtaining the right to return to his house in Tennessee, he would carry on maintaining a near-complete silence for four years…"

We should just call it SoroTIFA and cut the bullshit, then proceed to kill all involved in thistreasonous group(s) as it is international!!!, as well as extended family. Just to make sure. We also gonna have to findthe sympathizing groups, which basically means all terrorist USSA NGO agents.We could also just nuke em from those fake satellites!

Antifa are lazy and don't like to work, they just like to burn flags and destroy things. They stand for destruction and violence but nothing else.

Jordan Peterson said that the typical Leftie sccores low on Conscientiousness (I had to copy and paste that word) and high on openness and creativity.The Right are the opposite. High in Conscientiousness and low in openness and creativity.That makes me a Leftie, I guess. So why aren't I frothing at the mouth, spittle flying everywhere? I have another trait called continence, a moderatly active forebrain and an appreciation of the massive effort it takes to bring me the fruits of civilization.

Ron Paul doesn't get it quite right. BLM is a group focused on race, just like the so-called 'alt-right'.All of the far-left are extreme bigots in some way or the other, even if their 'identity groups' are varied and even contradictory i.e. LGBT vs Muslims. The 'one' unifying goal  is a desire to tear down the dominant culture, replace it with socialism and take from the rich. This allows them to justify (in their own mind) all sorts of ridiculous contradictory positions, but those positions are a lie. Black far-left don't care about Antifa (and actually find their 'support' annoying and patronizing), and the almost entirely white Antifa don't care about 'black lives' and neither group cares about illegal mexicans, muslims, LGBT and so on. This hodge-podge of rebels is a marriage of convenience focused on attacking the dominant culture and, in the end, to establish socialism and steal from the rich. Everything else they claim to care about is fake, positions of convenience, and 'the enemy of my enemy is my friend' alliances.

Seems like pointless nitpicking to me ...I doubt people in Antifa even know what Bolshevism is, never mind consciously have it as a philosophy. I think Antifa are perfectly fine with capitalists keeping the means of production as long as they get their free shit and 'vengence' on their enemies. I don't think they care about the details of how that is achieved. Fascism is just fine with them to.

We've been under the modern heglian dialect method of control for atleast the last 100 years. 1000+ if you consider the adversarial legal system all the US congress critters are trained in.How about we try something new? Or something older ... the golden rule.
