PI and Die Freiheit: “Hostile to the Constitution”

Note: the Arabic text was added to the above screen shot, and is not in the original.

Yesterday the Bavarian Office for the Protection of the Constitution deemed the Munich branch of Politically Incorrect and the party Die Freiheit as potentially anti-constitutional, due to their fomenting of hatred against Muslims. Both will be placed under state surveillance. Bavaria is a Free State within the German Federation, and thus has special privileges that allow it to take such actions.

The state crackdown seems to have been prompted by the success of Michael Stürzenberger in collecting signatures protesting the Qatari-funded Islamic center (read: “mosque”) in Munich.

As one German commentator said, “This is how the Third Reich was made possible. Now I understand how this could have happened back then.”

As an interesting side note, Bavaria is generally the most conservative state in Germany. Minister of the Interior Joachim Herrman, who is leading the charge on this latest repression, is a member of the state Christian Democrats (CSU), which is considered more conservative than its federal counterpart CDU, Chancellor Merkel’s party.

In other words, just as in the UK, the “conservatives” are cracking down on anyone who wants anything remotely resembling political change.

Joachim Herrman was also big on “internet monitoring” after the Breivik massacre. He thought that Breivik proved that monitoring communication wasn’t sufficient, so he suggested telecommunications companies keep logs on websites visited by citizens, as a courtesy to the authorities — in case those citizens might someday become “worthy of suspicion” and need to be investigated. He led an effort to implement “telecommunications data retention”.

None of this really makes sense. The man is supposedly a conservative — he is an extremist with regard to security and monitoring threats — but opposes anyone who thinks that millions of Ottoman invaders might become a problem.

According to the Bavarian authorities, “the right-wing populist Party Die Freiheit fuels general anxiety concerning Islam, which is in violation of the German constitution.” That is, “general anxiety” is really a kind of “hate”.

Die Freiheit and PI Considered Hostile to the Constitution

by Michael Stürzenberger

At noon today, Bavaria’s interior minister, Joachim Herrmann (CSU) held a press conference in connection with the publication of the constitutional report for 2012, which dealt extensively with Die Freiheit and PI. Apparently the intensively-conducted citizens’ initiative against the European Islam Center is causing someone headaches. Both of these groups will be under surveillance in future. The Süddeutsche Zeitung‘s instant interpretation is that now they will both be considered “constitution-hostile.” An incomprehensible inversion of reality: Those who would protect democracy and the constitution from a constitution-hostile ideology are now being pilloried. Is anyone still surprised in a Germany thoroughly diseased by Political Correctness?

The Süddeutsche Zeitung writes:

They spread propaganda inimical to Islam and feed general fears of Muslims. Now the Bavarian interior ministry is classifying the Bavarian section of Die Freiheit and the Munich local of the web group PI as hostile to the constitution. The state office of security has been observing both groups, and groups with closely linked themes, since the end of March, and has identified a hard core of about five persons. Michael Stürzenberger, the state head of Die Freiheit, is considered to be the leader.

Interior Minister Joachim Herrmann (CSU) showed his concern during the presentation of the security report of 2012, because these anti-Islam activities paint all Muslims as enemies of the constitutional state. Since 2012, they have been gathering signatures for the citizens’ initiative against the Ziem mosque project (European Islamic Center in Munich) led by Penzberg imam Benjamin Idriz. Herrmann emphasized that ordinary criticism of Islam or Ziem would not be scrutinized. According to security head, Burkhard Körner, Bavaria is the first state to classify Islam-haters as extremists.

Herrmann’s speech:

Ladies and Gentlemen,

It is a concern that hostility to Islam is increasing in significance in the right-extremist milieu — but not just there. Right extremists are making use of, for instance, the societal discourse on the building of mosques to awaken and/or strengthen common prejudices against Muslims and Islam. They are trying to make use of the fact that other segments of the population are critically confronting Islam, for example in regard to gender equality.

Detached from classical right-extremist circles, hostility to Islam also takes shape in part as a movement inimical to the constitution.

Michael Stürzenberger — spokesman for the local PI group in Munich (PI stands for Politically Incorrect) took over as state chair for the party Die Freiheit. Since then, the state party, also comprising the hard core of the local PI group, has been using the campaign he initiated at the end of 2012 for a petition against the “European Center for Islam in Munich” (ZIE-M) both on the internet and at events, for the purpose of propaganda hostile to Islam.

The activities are aimed at stoking general fears of Muslims as unintegratable adherents of an ideology, and to slander all Muslims on the basis of their faith as enemies of the constitutional state. This damages religious freedom, human dignity and the principle of equal treatment as central elements of our freedom-oriented democratic constitution.

The president of the Bavarian security office has therefore ordered the surveillance of PI group Munich and the Bavarian section of Die Freiheit.

Separated from this is criticism of Islam — for instance in the form of a citizens’ initiative against the ZIE-M — which is permissible under the basic right of freedom of expression and is not extremist. Citizens who support the petition with their signatures will not be scrutinized by security.

As if we had not been saying for a year and a half, every Saturday at information sessions for Die Freiheit: Our attempts to explain things are not directed against Muslims, but against the political ideology Islam. Muslims are its first victims — above all, the women. We want to free them from the bonds of this ideology so that they can integrate into our free, democratic society.

But all of this is consciously ignored. It is really more about combatting a young political force. It may be that the CSU intends to eliminate a possible competitor, as with the Republikaner previously.

Bavarian TV came to the Freiheit informational stand at noon today and filmed us…

Naturally without interviewing us, but in place of that, interviewed the extreme leftist journalist Tobias Bezler, who was allowed to characterize us, as usual, as “right populists.” I did try to convince the editor that it was her journalistic duty to present both pro and con, and let us have our say, but apparently balance is not the issue for Bavarian TV. She did nicely note down the scandalous facts I gave her about terror-supporting Arabic ZIEM financier Qatar and Imam Idriz — known to security — but of course used none of it in her presentation.

Welt-online reports that Mayor Ude and the state capital had been pushing since the end of 2011 to have PI and Die Freiheit put under surveillance by security. In the report by Blu News, the thesis paper is again the subject.

One thing is clear. We will pursue our path undeterred and consistently. In the spirit of the re-founded White Rose,* and deeply aware of being true defenders of freedom and democracy. In contrast to the hypocritical and mendacious mainstream, which willfully ignores the existential threat of Islam.

  1. In the landmark television series The World At War, one woman who lived in Germany in the 1930s said that Adolf Hitler appeared to many people to be pursuing order and stability. By the time his real agenda became known, it was too late for anyone to oppose him. Christabel Bielenberg, who was married to a German at the time, said: “I think that everything that came to us when we were living in Germany came very gradually. That was part, perhaps, of the way Hitler managed these things. It came on us rather, drip by drip, rather like an anaesthetic, one could almost say, and it was only when a specific thing that he did hit you personally that you actually realised what was going on.” (ITV. The World At War: A New Germany, 40-41 mins)

  4. The main difference between Bavaria/Germany now and Bavaria/Germany then is that under Hitler, muslims were serving “under” the Nazis, now Germans seem eager to want to serve “under” the muslims.


    I thought: NEVER AGAIN? How mistaken I was: Hitler would romp in again, especially Bavaria (my place of birth), I am ashamed and disgusted to a point where I feel nauseated – literally!

    • It is the shahada, the declaration of Islamic faith, in the form that appears on the raya, the black flag of jihad: “[I testify that] there is no god but Allah, and [I testify that] Mohammed is his messenger” ([‘ašhadu ‘an] la ilaha illa-llah, wa [‘ašhadu ‘anna] muhammadan rasulu-llah).

  5. Did I get it right.

    German officials stand in front of an islamic banner in an official German business?

        • I too was frightened – especially as the Bavarian flag next to it – same colours, looks tiny. Speaking of another blue & white flag: I read somewhere that the EU is now discussing to take out the white cross of the Greek flag. I hope it was on the first of April that I read that one.

  7. They demonized, drove out, and and annihilated the Jews~ a peaceful, assimilated, cultured, highly-advanced and tolerant minority who enriched their society ~and now they invite in and angelize (to coin an absurdist term) Muslims, a warlike, anti-assimilation, anti-Western, retrograde and utterly intolerant influx of covert colonizers, who undermine and corrupt German society, holding it in contempt as they scheme to replace it.

    Sheer suicidal insanity.


  9. Who is going to step up to the plate and stop these european traitors, these phoney politicians who are leading all of us millions of western europeans and its native peoples into slavery, subjugation, and war ??? with this captulation
    to the bogus religeon named islam?

    what is the end game ?? this EU madness has to stop, MUST be STOPPED!! NOW!! these unelected traitors, banksters, and political criminals have to be dealt with as soon as possible.
    islam must be banned from all of europe, as it has been for centuries past, it must be sent away from europe, and back to the desert and oblivion where this fake ideology and its [fecal] murder manual belong, these idiots who are hiding behing this book of hate and lies, claiming it to be a religeon, when in fact is really a NaZi murder manual for the enlightened human race.

  10. Tonser: You should be ……… because what has been said under the “photoshop” is AS IF THE PHOTOSHOP WOULD HAVE BEEN ALREADY THERE.

    • …sorry mistake: .. correct: as if the Shadha flag would be there already.

      Because its already in the HEAD of Mr. Herrman.

      And – it was in his HEART already there before it reached his head.

      Another Eagle Cult soul ……..

  11. So! The new Muslim ready and compliant Germany. Anyone visited Qatar recently? What are politicians all over hiding?

  12. It appears to be Cloud Cuckoo Land all over again. All Germans should be required to read the article posted on Politically Correct the other day titled “Turks in Germany are a Timebomb”. Meanwhile there are too many articles about the rise of anti-Jewish attitudes in Germany to be numbered. When I was in Bavaria in 1972, the standard reply to questions about that state’s relationship with the rise of Adolph Hitler was that he was able to rise to power there because it was the most tolerant, easygoing part of Germany.
    They still seem to be very easygoing where Muslims are concerned. Could that be because they know Muslims will kill? And Jews won’t?
    Maybe I’m too cynical. The French gained a reputation for being timid when it came to opposing Hitler, but they came by it honestly. In 1916 the French army lost as many men at the Marne as America has lost in our entire history. That would certainly temper MY enthusiasm for battle. And while America lost about 260,000 dead in WWII, the Germans lost 6 million.
    I bet Neuschwanstein castle would make a terrific Mosque! And its already has minarets!

  13. Actually that would be “Politically Incorrect”. I get confused because the American television show with that name means the exact opposite.

  15. Once in Berlin, the Mufti received an enthusiastic reception by the “Islamische Zentralinstitut”

    and the whole Islamic community of Germany, which welcomed him as the “Führer of the

    Arabic world.” In an introductory speech, he called the Jews the “most fierce enemies of the

    Muslims” and an “ever corruptive element” in the world. Husseini soon became an honored

    guest of the Nazi leadership and met on several occasions with Hitler. He personally lobbied

    the Führer against the plan to let Jews leave Hungary, fearing they would immigrate to Palestine.

    He also strongly intervened when Adolf Eichman tried to cut a deal with the British government

    to exchange German POWs for 5000 Jewish children who also could have fled to Palestine. The

    Mufti’s protests with the SS were successful, as the children were sent to death camps in Poland

    instead. One German officer noted in his journals that the Mufti would liked to have seen the Jews

    “preferably all killed.” On a visit to Auschwitz, he reportedly admonished the guards running the

    gas chambers to work more diligently. Throughout the war, he appeared regularly on German

    radio broadcasts to the Middle East, preaching his pro-Nazi, anti-Semitic message to the Arab

    masses back home.
