Germany: Violent Leftist Extremism on the Rise, Warns Spy Chief

Germany faces a “growing threat” from left-wing extremism, warns Hans-Georg Maassen, the head of the country’s domestic intelligence agency (BfV). This intelligence assessment comes little more than week after the leftist protests against the G20 summit in Hamburg turned into — what some European commentators described as — an embarrassment for German Chancellor Angela Merkel. Around 500 police officers were injured during those protests.

According to German intelligence agency (BfV), there are an estimated 8,500 leftist extremists in Germany that are “violence-orientated.” The country is also home to over 10,000 Islamists that BfV classifies as dangerous. Those numbers have been on a sharp rise since Chancellor Merkel opened the EU borders to millions of migrants from Arab and Muslim countries in the autumn of 2015.

    Two days ago I heard about some Patriots that were fed up with bogus Charity refugees groups that were really in the Human Trafficking business.
    So they formed a group to use boats that go out to sea and Video record the smugglers ships meeting the Charity workers to transfer them in the inflatable boast where they come into the Nations Water and get rescued as if they sailed to 2 days with no food or water in the hot sun.

    But…. last night the Bias News outlets reported it that Ring-wing Anti-immigrant Racists threatened to use boat and meet the refugees at sea to sink sink their boats and let them drown .

    These are the sick people in the media that don’t know that one day their throats will be slit by those peaceful muslim children ( males in the late 20’s and early 30’s .
    The CBC stopped reporting on the illegals crossing into canada from the USA now that the good weather is hear. I’m really sorry that people are born in violent hell-holes , but it’s not my job to rescue them when the people elect tyrants or want others to die for their freedoms.
    Trudeau wants to bring them here to make our nation a violent hell-hole while all the Liberals have is the same old example of 1 immigrant that came here with $50 and is now a billionaire.

      You are so right Gary, but it seems to me that all Federal parties are the same when it comes to immigration and refugees. I’ve read that Sheer, leader of the Conservative party is a liberal-lite, so we can expect more of the same from him.
      I’ve emailed the liberal party asking them to get rid of Trudeau as their leader, emailed Trudeau to step down, emailed the Gov. General to get Trudeau out of office and signed petitions for the same. So, what’s next? Canada is doomed (if it isn’t already), if this insanity from political leaders continues.

    All the West is under attack by both the Left and Islam, and the leaders of every Western country allowed it to happen. I find the Left the most vile of the two, because they managed to infiltrate governments, the media, the entertainment industry and of course education over the past 60 odd years, and it is the Left that opened our borders to invite what had been the enemy without to be the Left’s ally within.

    At least they’re finally being honest about it. The same thing is happening in other countries, but most of them are trying to hide it behind the smokescreen of a fabricated threat of “far right extremism”.
