I reported last Friday on concerns raised by German Foreign Minister Annalena Baerbock about the possibility of civil unrest if there are fuel shortages in the coming winter.
Ms. Baerbock is not the only member of the German government who is worried about such eventualities. According to the report below, Interior Minister Nancy Faeser is warning potential insurrectionists that the security forces are prepared for them. And Stephan Kramer, the president of the Thuringian Office for the Protection of the Constitution, said “it will be exciting” when the emergency arrives.

Nancy Faeser warns against protests
Popular uprisings? “We are prepared,” says the Interior Minister
In the event that there should be protests because of power failures and cold apartments, Federal Minister of the Interior Nancy Faeser (SPD) has now announced: “We are prepared.” The head of the Foreign Office, Annalena Baerbock (Greens), had spoken of the threat of “popular uprisings”. Faeser warns against taking part in such demonstrations.
Background: In a survey for the Bild newspaper, 44 percent of Germans stated that they wanted to take to the streets because of the high energy prices. According to the opinion research institute Insa, almost every second person said that they would “certainly or with a high probability take part in demonstrations against the high energy prices.”
The protest potential is particularly high among voters of the AfD (72 percent), Die Linke (60 percent) and the FDP (50 percent). However, a majority of 50 percent fundamentally rejects demonstrating against high energy prices. [Yep, the snitching conformists: they’d rather freeze and starve and take the jab.]
Faeser: Don’t let right-wing extremists abuse it [she’s so ideologically retarded, can’t even read the numbers from the survey]
Faeser urgently warned against taking part in possible upcoming protests. In doing so, she established a connection between right-wing extremists and Corona critics. She told the Handelsblatt: “Of course there is a risk that those who roared out their contempt for democracy during the Corona period and were often traveling alongside right-wing extremists will try to misuse the sharply rising prices as a new mobilization topic.” Faeser announced: “We are also prepared for possible new protests.”
It may be said that “circles that earlier shaped the Corona protests are looking for new topics with protest potential,” a ministry spokesman later claimed when asked by the TAZ [ a leftist daily propaganda rag that reminds me of the Völkischer Beobachter]. “Depending on the development of the energy supply situation and the social consequences of the cost increases, a development on a scale comparable to the Corona protests is possible,” said the Ministry of the Interior.
Office for the Protection of the Constitution: “It will be exciting” [“suspenseful” may be a more appropriate translation in this case, but “exciting” could be the better choice for the situation the German people face]
The President of the Thuringian Office for the Protection of the Constitution, Stephan Kramer, has developed a real horror scenario. He sees “a risk to the security situation” if there is not only a lack of gas for heating, but industrial production also collapses in some cases and unemployment rises “dramatically” as a result, he told the Handelsblatt. What it means if there might also be large-scale power failures in this situation, “I don’t have to spell it out.”
It will be “exciting,” Kramer added to the TAZ, “the way the supply will then be ensured and, above all, how public safety and order will then be guaranteed.”
Afterword from the translator:
These governments are all the same; they’re the ones who wreck peoples’ lives and then use all the might of the state to suppress them. They drive the car off the road into a wall, and then blame the owner of the wall for the crash. I seriously hope that the whole evil bunch will get their Ceausescu moment in history.
