No Lateral Thinking Allowed!

Long-time readers will remember Rainer Wendt, the head of the German police union. Mr. Wendt was a reliable voice of sanity when interviewed on TV during the Great Migration Crisis and its aftermath (most recent posts: here and here).

Now it seems that Rainer Wendt has joined the Corona Stasi, based on his remarks on the Querdenker [“lateral thinkers”] movement, which has staged massive anti-lockdown rallies in Berlin.

Rainer Wendt calls for a nationwide ban on Querdenker demonstrations

The chairman of the German Police Union, Rainer Wendt, has called for a nationwide ban on all lateral thinking demonstrations.

“In these demonstrations, the violation of the law is preprogrammed and takes place permanently and thousands of times because the participants do not wear masks and do not keep the minimum distance,” said Wendt to the Neue Osnabrücker Zeitung. “You have to act much more rigorously against it.”

If it was made clear in advance at such events that the participants would not observe the requirements, politicians and the judiciary would have to ensure that they would not take place. Otherwise the police officers would have to deal with the “lateral thinkers”. “It is completely incomprehensible why such demos are even still approved,” said Wendt.

In addition, it was no longer possible to convey to the citizens that, on the one hand, they would be sent home at 10 p.m. because of nightly curfews, while at the same time, for example in Berlin on May 1st, people were allowed to demonstrate into the night.

The translator adds this afterword:

Nazi law-and-order policies were imposed through a systematic takeover of German police and legal institutions, as well as the formation of new police agencies such as the Gestapo. Another important agency was the Sicherheitsdienst or SD, the intelligence-gathering arm of the SS, which like the Gestapo operated with considerable extra-legal powers… Sounds eerily familiar, doesn’t it?

  1. Civil disobedience and German are unlikely to be found in the same sentence. Either this goon of a policeman is being disingenuous or he is just incapable of comprehending the idea that someone might choose to break a bad law in order to protest it.

  2. Last night I had a dream.

    The Querdenker aka lateral thinkers behaved the same as the Antifa.
    Yes, whatever Antifa does to police officers was done in my dream by the Querdenkers aka lateral thinkers too. Tu Quoque.

    Unfortunately my dream ended, but I think I saw shortly before waking up heavily armed police officers putting Claymore mines up and Leopard tank crews were loading canistershot…

  3. I repeat myself, but Wendt is only representing a minoritarian fraction of organized police here. Not ” THE” police union. That does not make things better, however. He used to be a regular in TV panels and recently fell into oblivion. Hence his new activity.
