Federal government sends political commissars to German schools
by Manfred Rouhs
Education policy is actually a matter for the country. But the federal government has a say. It is now making use of this by training 151 full-time political commissars with whom it wants to bring German schools ideologically in line.
So that the action does not remind of bygone, totalitarian times, the political commissars of the 21st century are called “respect trainers”. Who or what should students learn to respect? Who else? Not their teachers, for example, but people of foreign origins. With a different skin color, language and nationality. 151 full-time employees are to fight racism in Germany’s schools from 2024, because, as Spiegel Online quotes a state secretary in the Ministry of Family Affairs:
“We must not tolerate political or religious extremism, hatred and misanthropy in our society — especially not in our schools.”
What happens to students who refuse to obey the political commissioners? Are they thrown out of school? — We will experience it and we can look forward to it.
“Extremism, hatred and misanthropy” are extensible and interpretable general-purpose terms that can be interpreted one way or another. For example, anyone who criticizes the policy of open borders can be classified as an “extremist” and suspected of “misanthropy”. Real disrespect for classmates Ali and Mustafa is not absolutely necessary for this.
From 2024 a wave of repression, spying and denunciation will descend on German schoolchildren, paid for with taxpayers’ money. A total of €36 million will then be spent on this each year. The AfD [Alternative für Deutschland, Alternative for Germany] parliamentary group has announced resistance to this. In a request, Götz Frömming requests clarification from the federal government.
