[ Editor’s Note: This story came as quite a surprise to me, how huge the numbers were, and this is just Germany. Imagine what the complete EU hate crime numbers must be like. I smell a orchestrated media standdown which has only allowed light coverage on this epidemic scale of attacks.

On a different but similar note, the attacks by right wing Israelis on the Arab population is something that we also see little about in US ‘free’ media. The Israeli Lobby ‘activists’ have kept a close watch to keep the lid on anything more than the usual Israeli retaliations, which area always ‘defensively’ framed, where Palestinians doing the same would be instantly branded as terrorists.

If one goes down to the black continent they would find the motherload of hate crimes. But because they are mainly black on black, tribal and politically motivated attacks, they also get light coverage back in the land of the free Anglo press. Hence, the hypocrisy rolls on.

Ask yourself if you have ever seen or heard of an EU website where you can get the historic and current year hate crime statistics, down to the country level. I have never seen one, or had one sent to me. This German article is the first for me.

I also missed seeing any blockbuster film made on topic, à la The Exodus, which all school children in the US were exposed to, compliments of certain unregistered foreign agents inside the US that used Hollywood as an extension of their Intel psychological operations center.

The old fashioned term for this was always “hiding in plain sight”. Alas, the public continues to be manipulated by not only the legacy propaganda but with the deluge of internet propaganda, where some can say and do what they want while others are banned and blocked, with VT being among the latter… Jim W.

German synagogue shooting

The rate of crimes committed by far-right extremists in post-war Germany registered its highest record in 2020, official statistics show.

According to the figures released on Tuesday, the far-right crimes recorded by German Police reached 23,064 cases — an increase of about six percent — last year, the highest figure since records began in 2001.

Presenting the figures at a press conference in Berlin, Interior Minister Horst Seehofer stressed that “right-wing extremism remains the biggest threat to our country” and had left a “trail of blood” through Germany in recent years.

He also cited such heinous far-right crimes as the assassination of pro-refugee politician Walter Lubcke, the head of Kassel regional government, in 2019 and a racist attack in Hanau in 2020, which led to the death of nine people.

The 2020 figure just exceeds the previous high of 23,555 recorded in 2016, while the overall number of politically motivated crimes hit a new all-time high of 44,692 in 2020.

Seehofer said the figures demonstrated a “brutalization” of German society. Violent crimes classified as political in nature included 11 murders and 13 attempted murders.

He also stressed that in a year that “the pandemic has caused further polarization” in the political discussion, the number of politically motivated crimes was a “yardstick for the mood in society.”

“They are unsettling, above all because they show that the trend of recent years is continuing,” the German minister added.

Meanwhile, according to the victims’ group VBRG, a survey conducted in eight of Germany’s 16 states found that three to four people are targeted by right-wing extremist attacks per day.

Judith Porath, the chairwoman of VBRG, also confirmed that the attacks mostly targeted refugees and black Germans, before adding that anti-Asian violence had also escalated since the pandemic began in March 2020.

  1. @Jay: For sure muslims can be right wing. However the term right wing is not assoziated with muslims, but with Nazis of any kind. If the crimes are muslim believe related, it would be a different story, not fittingf so well with the recent German politics, which is the main casue of the rise of such “right wing” incidents in Germany nowadays.
    Refugee crimes in Germany are hardkly openly reported in MSM, and if, it is not clearly visible, if it was commited by a refugee. People have to visits sites like politikversagen.de to read about it.

  2. please be aware, that Germany had an inflow of muslims from unknown origin after 2015 opening of its borders by Angela Merkels decission. Claiming to be from Syria allowed anyone in without proper papers nor confirmed identity.
    For political reasons all attacks on Jews and jewish prperty counts as far right,even if it was performed by anti-Zionist arabs. The statistics need to be taken with care, as they are manipulative.

  3. On the “Right Wing Hate” subject. Isn’t it still a financed operation of the Usury Tribe?
    They have to keep an enemy to herd their base.
    It is all around my new neighborhood and rooted in media and churches.

  4. I remember from 1989’s Black Rain movie a scene when Yakuza chief Sugai say to character Nick performed by Michael Douglas about the west culture in the after war Japan “….you shoved your values down our throat. We forgot who we were. You created Sato and the thousands like him…” . In the last 30 years after cold war end, some darks persons of elites in the west world, mainly in Europe, they started to shoved new “values” down in the west society throat like, gender policy, multiculturalism, uncontrolled immigration, economic globalization and so on, aimed to erase society’s family and moral values and belonging to a nation feelings. The consequences of that plan, in my opinion, are things like this by example.
