German Press Admits: ‘Majority On The Streets Symphatized With The Right-Wing Demonstrators’

The US newspaper Wall Street Journal set the mood early yesterday, even before the protests in Chemnitz had commenced, saying that those who chose to walk in Chemnitz with the (right-wing political organizations of) AfD and Pegida were ‘extremists,’ and those who walked alongside the left-wing counter-protesters (the Social Democrats (centre-left), Die Linke (far-left) and Antifa) were ‘demonstrators’ (see our related coverage, no joke).

We can only hope that someone over at the editorial board of the WSJ reads the German press today who, in their reporting over yesterday’s mass protests in Chemnitz admit (quote from Die Welt): “the majority of those lining the streets of the march route sympathized with the right-wing demonstrators and complained that the counter-protesters had been given preferential treatment.”

Of course there will still be those who claim that the events of yesterday once again took place in Sachsen, a region known for swinging farther to the right politically. However, if you combine the general German mood as of late (the ZDF (national broadcaster) has the AfD polling at record highs) with the numbers that clearly show that in every mass demonstration as of late the right-wing ‘extremists’ far outnumber the left-wing ‘demonstrators,’ politicians in Germany know that the October regional elections are not something to look forward to.

Yesterday showed two different kinds of Germans. The Herz statt Hetze" (Show a Heart Not Hatred) left-wing demonstrators were carnivalesque, with the largely young crowd listening to rock bands and chanting anti-Nazi slogans in a number of languages.

The older right-wing supporters were larger in number and walked in a silent march around the city, spearheaded by some AfD politicians. When police urged them to disperse at the end of the rally, some started shouting slogans again like ‘Our salaries pay your taxes’ (aimed at the police) ‘Merkel muss weg’ (Merkel has to go), ‘Lugenpresse’ (Lying press) and ‘Wir sind das Volk’ (We are the people).

The last slogan (Wir sind das Volk) which has become synonymous to this week’s rallies was attributed to the far-right by the German media… until someone showed a clip of people singing it when the German wall was brought down in 1989 and it is now no longer seen as controversial.

During the night, small skirmishes between far-left and far-right groups took place, nine people were left wounded and had to be transported to hospital and there are fresh reports that an Afghan youngster was attacked by three Germans.
