Study confirms that Stasi infiltrated Greens

A new study documents how the secret police in Communist East Germany tried to influence the Green Party in West Germany. Bad news for the Greens? Not at all. They’re the ones who commissioned the study.

The 360-page study, entitled “The State Security Ministry and the Greens”, was written by historians Jens Gieseke and Andrea Bahr. It details how 15 to 20 members of the Green Party in 1980 cooperated closely with the secret police, or Stasi, in Communist East Germany.

The most prominent was Berlin Bundestag deputy Dirk Schneider. In addition, some 450 to 500 sources provided information to the East Germans about the inner workings of the party, which was founded in 1980.

That may sound damaging to the Greens, but it isn’t. In fact, the party itself engaged Gieseke and Bahr, after a 2013 study by the state archive for Stasi files about spying by West German parliamentarians and a subsequent recommendation by the Bundestag that the Greens investigate their past.

        They enter through the vaginas of women, and the rectums of homosexuals. And you all know it’s true.

    when I saw the picture I thought, damn they arrested ZZ Top. Glad to see it’s just a couple of socialist hippies doing what socialist hippies do. Nothing of value.
