Using the pretext of the recent attack in Halle in which no Jews were even hurt let alone killed, Germany’s Interior Minister announced a new six-point plan to combat antisemitism on Thursday:
Speaking to the federal parliament, the Bundestag, Interior Minister Horst Seehoffer acknowledged that “antisemitism is anchored in parts of our society.” His plan includes an obligation to report hate speech on the internet, bans on extremist political groups, a stricter weapons law and more prevention work by the authorities.
In his remarks, Seehofer spoke of “individual perpetrators” who “build up their frustration outside the public sphere without initially recognizable connections to anyone.” This was a new challenge for the authorities because it was no longer enough to observe an extremist party, he said.
Stephan Balliet — the 27-year-old who murdered two people in Halle after being unable to enter the synagogue — is being investigated as a lone-wolf terrorist, despite his support for neo-Nazi ideology.
Seehoffer’s proposals come on top of last week’s move by the justice minister to toughen German laws against hate speech on the internet.
Christine Lambrecht said she would push through measures that would obligate social media companies to report death threats and other inflammatory statements to the relevant authorities. Lambrecht is also seeking stiffer sentences for those convicted of promoting racism and antisemitism online.
As has been astutely pointed out, an antisemite used to be someone who hated Jews, but now an antisemite is anyone that the Jews don’t like.
And Jews seem to believe that they can single-handedly erase “hate” from the world by not only making it illegal but also by making the penalties so severe that no one will even dare utter a single word that could even be misconstrued as “hateful”.
And since only Jews are world’s self-appointed experts on the international legal definition of “hate” and “antisemitism”, you can rest assured 75% of Germans will now become “at risk” of going to jail for saying something “offensive” to someone on the internet.
And notice that these new laws will include an “obligation” to report whenever you see or read it, and apparently if you fail to report “hate” that you’ve witnessed, you too will potentially face legal punishments.
Just like the Jews did in the old Soviet Union, they want to create a new Snitch Culture where everyone is reporting everything they see to the “authorities”. And children, of course, will most importantly report on their parents and grandparents.
And the judge, jury, and executioners will all be hand-picked and kosher-certified by the ADL. And none of these draconian measures will cause any “uptick” in antisemitism or resentment toward Jews, of course.
