Welcome to the GSSR

All the mainstream parties in the German Federal Republic agree: the AfD (Alternative für Deutschland, Alternative for Germany) must be suppressed. They acknowledge that it can no longer be stopped at the ballot box, because it has become too popular, so the only solution is that the party must be officially banned. All in the name of “democracy”.

“Suspected case”

AfD court ruling: “stone in the mosaic towards a party ban”

After the verdict against the AfD at the Münster Higher Administrative Court, events accelerated. While the AfD leadership announces further legal steps, the representatives of the other parties cheer — and promptly call for an AfD ban procedure.


The AfD was outraged by the ruling of the North Rhine-Westphalia Higher Administrative Court, according to which the party could be classified as a “suspected case” by the Federal Office for the Protection of the Constitution. “We are astonished that no evidence has to be provided for allegations and that the court has not demanded this, either,” complained AfD federal chairwoman Alice Weidel at a press conference in Berlin. “The verdict is not acceptable to us,” emphasized Weidel.

Its co-chair Tino Chrupalla added that the timing of the verdict announcement “in the middle of the European election campaign also shows that there is a political motivation behind it.” In the upcoming days, the Federal Executive Board will review the reasons for the judgment — which are not yet available. “We will probably see each other again in Leipzig,” predicted Weidel. The Federal Administrative Court has its seat in Leipzig. There the AfD can lodge an appeal against the decision of the Higher Administrative Court not to allow an appeal.

CDU man: “Proposal for a ban before the summer parliamentary break”

Meanwhile, politicians from several parties have called for a ban on the AfD. “Now the chances of success of a ban procedure must be examined in concrete terms,” said Saxony’s Justice Minister Katja Meier (Greens) to the Tagesspiegel.

She suggested the establishment of a task force by the Conference of Interior Ministers. This group should then — as in the NPD ban process — collect material for a later application. “Our democracy is too precious not to actually use all possible constitutional instruments to protect our constitution,” emphasized Meier.

She found support from, among others, CDU member of the Bundestag Marco Wanderwitz. “My wish is that we submit the ban proposal before the parliamentary summer break,” he told Die Zeit. “Particularly in the East, the party can no longer be reduced politically.” The Left Party member of the Bundestag, Martina Renner, also expressed this to t-online. “Such a motion is democracy’s self-defense against its enemies.”

Legal expert: End of financing and ban not ruled out

Professor of public law at the University of Münster, Fabian Wittreck, considers a party ban against the AfD to be realistic. “They are dangerously close to what led to an end to party financing in the NPD,” he told the Frankfurter Rundschau.

The AfD should at least prepare for this — if not more: “The verdict is another piece in the mosaic towards a party ban.”

Federal Justice Minister Marco Buschmann (FDP) is not convinced. The verdict “does not automatically pave the way for proceedings to ban the AfD,” he emphasized to the newspapers of the Funke media group. “You should only try something like this if you can be very sure that it would be successful.” Rather, he wants to continue to fight the AfD with arguments. “That should remain the claim of serious Democrats.” [I guess he still believes that he’s part of a democracy and not a political party tyranny. Simply delusional.]

His party colleague Sabine Leutheusser-Schnarrenberger agreed with this opinion. A ban is not sustainable. “We have to provide the AfD with content in order to convince its voters of democracy again,” wrote the former Federal Justice Minister on X. Both liberals rated the judges’ decision in Münster as correct.

AfD previously failed with a lawsuit in Cologne

The verdict was also welcomed by Green Party member of the Bundestag Konstantin von Notz. “The AfD is undoubtedly one of these enemies of our liberal democracy. The fact that it can be observed is only consistent and an expression of the defensive strength of our constitutional state — especially against the background of German history,” he told the news portal RND.

Similar tones came from Bavaria’s Interior Minister Joachim Hermann (CSU): “The verdict confirms that the federal and state constitutional protection authorities are rightly keeping a close eye on the extremist currents within the AfD,” he told the dpa news agency. Now it must be checked whether the party can be classified as “certainly right-wing extremist”.

On Monday, the North Rhine-Westphalian Higher Administrative Court rejected the AfD’s appeal against the Federal Office for the Protection of the Constitution. The party can therefore be listed as a right-wing extremist “suspected case” by the domestic secret service. The party had previously failed in its lawsuit before the Cologne Administrative Court.

Afterword from the translator:

“OUR liberal democracy”? Isn’t a democracy supposedly for ALL people in a country, or is this democracy only for those that toe the party line?

And then there is the big question: “Are there other democracies apart from “your” democracy? Maybe just democracy? With rule of law, separation of powers, free equal direct and secret elections, free mandate, majority decision? Along with elections and votes? With being held responsible for decisions? With freedom of expression and a truly free press and media? A democracy that is NOT usurped by the parties? Oh, wouldn’t that be yours? NO? Ah, now I understand, that wouldn’t be “liberal”, now, would it?

Whom are they trying to kid here, their utterly delusional selves or those they want to gull even deeper into the mass grave they’ve been digging for Germany?

Bertholt Brecht said:

…the people
Had squandered the confidence of the government
And could only win it back
By redoubled work. Would it not in that case
Be simpler for the government
To dissolve the people
And elect another?

If he had suspected that socialists of all people would implement this word for word, those words would have most likely stuck in his throat.
