Last week I posted a video clip in which German police officers threatened to crush the skulls of old-age pensioners who were demonstrating. As a sort of macabre counterpoint, the following report from Hamburg describes an incident in which Antifa “counter-protesters” knocked down and seriously injured a 90-year-old woman at a demonstration.
Many thanks to Hellequin GB for translating this article from the Hamburger Morgenpost:
90-year-old knocked down in the Corona demo: Broken thigh
On the sidelines of the Corona demo on Saturday in downtown Hamburg, at which, according to police reports, more than 11,500 people protested against the federal government’s pandemic measures, a dispute broke out in which a 90-year-old was knocked down and seriously injured.
In the area of the Jungfernstieg, several counter-demonstrators, apparently people from the left-wing scene, are said to have “acted” on the participants in the Corona demonstration from the outside, the police said: At least one bottle is said to have been thrown; previously they only chanted. Then there was a fight.
At the Corona demo in Hamburg: 90-year-old knocked down
When the police intervened, around twenty people who were said to be from the group of counter-demonstrators fled. The uninvolved 90-year-old was knocked down. The fire department paramedics took care of her and then took the woman to a hospital. MOPO [Morgenpost] learned that the pensioner suffered a fractured hip.
For older people, fractures of this kind can be dangerous and sometimes have fatal consequences: Because they are immediately bedridden, their medication intake has to be increased. They can barely move and they have to struggle with the consequences of the operation, in which serious complications may occur. Recovery is very protracted. Muscle breakdown is greatly accelerated by the lack of movement and leads to a general weakening of the entire body.
In some cases, the jarring of the bones during the fall can also loosen the bone marrow and thus promote arterial vascular occlusion, because it is precisely those bone marrow fragments that get into the bloodstream. In the worst case, this can result in an embolism, which is often fatal.
Afterword from the translator:
Let’s get this straight: these leftist counter-demonstrators are there to “protect” the general public from a virus and those who are spreading it, in their twisted minds, by any means, even if it injures or kills innocent bystanders. Makes total sense to me — NOT. And why am I not surprised? The old and proven adage comes into play here — “As above, so below”. The Klabauterbach must be so proud.
