Germany steps up monitoring of far-right AfD party

Germany’s domestic intelligence agency is to step up monitoring of the far-right Alternative for Germany (AfD) party for suspected extremism.

But the BfV agency is not yet going as far as to use informants or phone taps in its nationwide watch on AfD.

AfD is the main opposition party. It entered the federal parliament for the first time in 2017, winning 94 seats in the 709-seat lower house (Bundestag).

AfD sees Islam as a threat to German values, urging tough immigration curbs.

Trump is spied on by the FBI, Brexit is an orchestrated shambles, In Canada contrarian views on immigration policy are smeared as racist and everywhere else the MSM and permanent political classes revile populism as the new “far-right enemy”. Good work people!
