To Mask or Not to Mask, That is the Question

The following article about an argument in a talk show on German TV has been translated by Hellequin GB. The translator includes this introductory note:

Another day in the open-air lunatic asylum… and barely surviving.

The self-righteous Hounds of Corona are calling for the head of Dr. Klaus Reinhardt, the President of the German Medical Association, because of this.

The translated article from the news site watson.de:

Markus Lanz is stunned by the medical practitioner’s statement about the mask requirement

How can we continue to get through the Corona pandemic safely?

What will our future look like?

What kind of world will it be? Markus Lanz [talk show on ZDF named after its moderator] was about the really big questions on Wednesday evening 2020 — and it got hot.

While the philosopher Richard David Precht and the entrepreneur Frank Thelen fought for the future, the moderator Markus Lanz and Dr. Klaus Reinhardt got into each other’s hair because of the Corona mask requirement. The author Gabriele Krone-Schmalz only has the chair between the disputing parties.

These were the guests on Markus Lanz on Wednesday:

  • Richard David Precht, philosopher
  • Frank Thelen, entrepreneur
  • Gabriele Krone-Schmalz, author
  • Dr. Klaus Reinhardt, physician

Markus Lanz and Dr. Klaus Reinhardt started the show heatedly. Corona has been the top topic at “Markus Lanz” for months. Anyone who thought that this topic must have been discussed long ago was taught better in the previous broadcast. Because on this Wednesday evening, the Corona crisis was rolled out again and the moderator Markus Lanz and the medical doctor Klaus Reinhardt lost themselves, right at the beginning of the talk show, in a fundamental discussion — and that on several points. In the end, not even the mask should be a safe remedy against Corona. But one after the other.

At the beginning of the show, Dr. Klaus Reinhardt, who had already tested positive for COVID-19 himself, had an absolutely relaxed position regarding Corona. When asked about his assessment of the current situation, the President of the German Medical Association replied: “I would describe the situation in Germany as totally compensated.”

Using a graphic, Reinhardt explained that the number of Corona infections is higher than in the spring, but that Germany is far from reaching its limits in intensive care medicine.

Markus Lanz assessed the statistics more critically and asked: “Can you put it that way? Or was the number of people infected in the spring presumably very, very much higher?”

The moderator explained: “I keep hearing from experts: We probably had a factor of ten in the spring, about ten times as many cases as assumed.”

Reinhardt countered that there were fewer tests in the spring. In relation to the tests, the positive rate, i.e. the number of infected people, is still moderate; here it is 10 percent to 3.6 percent.

Lanz is scared of the Corona curve — not so the doctor

Lanz evidently was not calmed down by these numbers — on the contrary. Looking at another graphic, the moderator wanted to convince the doctor: “Mr. Reinhardt, if you look at it. This curve, if we now look all the way to the right, we see a very high deflection at the back.” Lanz explained: “This curve scares me when I see it that way.”

But Dr. Klaus Reinhardt remained true to his sober assessment: “That is the number of new infections. It says nothing about how many people are newly infected and it also says nothing about how many people are seriously sick. That the curve increases should warrant our attention.” Reinhardt is certain: “There is no reason to panic.”

The suggestion of the physician Reinhardt: In order to keep the death rate low, young people in society should instead stay away from at-risk patients, and older people should behave more cautiously.

Markus Lanz reacted skeptically: “We are an old society. We cannot separate that out at all. It doesn’t work.”

Gerald Grosz: “The Silence of the Stupid Lambs”

In recent months I’ve posted a number of video rants by Gerald Grosz, an Austrian politician for the BZÖ (Bündnis Zukunft Österreich, Alliance for the Future of Austria) and the FPÖ (Freiheitliche Partei Österreichs, Austrian Freedom Party). In his latest rant, Mr. Grosz compares the lack of reaction to the beheading of the French schoolteacher Samuel Paty to the worldwide media frenzy over the death of George Floyd.

Behold the Fundament of the Prophet!

The video below shows outraged reactions to the display of hundreds of Charlie Hebdo cartoons of Mohammed’s posterior in a public place in France. Someone — possibly a multitude of someones — went to a lot of trouble to blaspheme the Prophet and offend Muslims, in response to last week’s beheading of the schoolteacher Samuel Paty.

It’s Time to Stand up and Say STOP!

In the following video, a young Austrian policewoman named Birgit discusses the “pandemic”. She never mentions the Wuhan Coronavirus or COVID-19, or even masks and lockdowns. Yet it’s obvious that’s what she’s talking about — after all, what else “has been going on for the last seven months”?

Alice Weidel: The German Economy is Perishing!

Many thanks to Hellequin GB for translating this op-ed from Politikstube:

Alice Weidel: The German economy is perishing!

Germany is on the cusp of a deep recession.

The signs of excessive unemployment, bankruptcies and the slump in GDP are already evident today.

The fairy tale issued by the federal government of the V-shaped economic recovery in the near future is being shattered by reality.

The so-called second Corona wave with its profound restrictions on public life and the smoldering lockdown subjects many economies in the Eurozone to a stress test that comes at an inopportune time.

After three lost quarters, many analysts have cut their growth expectations for the fourth quarter sharply within a month.

For the EU member states, only a 2% instead of a 3% recovery is expected by the end of December — for Germany the forecast is even lower, at a modest 1.5%. Every taxpayer in Germany will be presented with the invoice after the 2021 federal election.

The increased number of tests, even on symptom-free people, leads to a higher number of infections.

Just 851 (!) people are currently showing symptoms.

What kind of a pandemic is that supposed to be?

Instead of remaining in disaster mode, threatening the economy with a new lockdown, and forcing the entire population under the mask, even outdoors, the government must now make a 180-degree turn.

A call to the WHO is needed: They issued the update that COVID-19 is less dangerous than conventional flu.

The translator includes this afterword:

It looks to me that our respective governments around the world have been pushing the Corona Pandemic Lie already to such a degree that there won’t be any recovery for the little people until those responsible are taken down from their lofty pedestals, tried and [intemperate recommendation redacted] for crimes against humanity.

But that is just my humble opinion.

Islam, Marxism, Globalism, Covideanism… all those cults seek only power and the submission of people. The people themselves, the little people like you and me, are no more than the grist for their mill.

And I for one am sick and tired of it.

A Nation of Compliant Drones

Europe is currently experiencing its “second wave” of the Wuhan Coronavirus, and a number of countries are in the process of imposing varying degrees of a new lockdown. Spain, France, and the UK have adopted particularly strict regimes.

MissPiggy sends this report of her personal experience with Coronamadness in Germany:

Yesterday I visited hairdresser’s and immediately ran afoul of the Corona regulations. First it was about not having the “right mask”. Then I was given my next instructions about going to the bathroom to wash my hands. After that I was told my hands needed to be disinfected.

I said, “I’m sorry, I just washed my hands — that should be enough.” I showed my hands, and said that I have an allergic reaction on my hands (fingertips) from all these disinfectants. So I refused, and they said, “Sorry, then we can’t serve you.”

Then they agreed to just spray the palms. So far, so good. Then I had to fill out a form with my contact information. That’s when I said, “Nope. I’ll spend my money elsewhere.” So now there’s a “mobil friseur” coming to my house on Tuesday.

As for that hairdresser’s, they can go bankrupt. The owner even said in the end that he had no understanding for people who wouldn’t comply with these measures. His reasoning was that because of people like me, there will be a second lockdown. I told him that was going to happen with or without people like me.

At one point I just asked, “What’s next, a PCR to get your hair cut?” Their response was, “No, no…” That launched a whole discussion about how this isn’t their idea, that they have to follow instructions, and they don’t want another lockdown because they barely survived the first one, etc.

I had the same conversation with a lady at the fish counter in a grocery store. I didn’t have my glasses on and she pointed at something I couldn’t see, so I leaned forward. She barked at me to stay behind the magic tape on the floor. I retorted, “If I don’t, will you call the Corona police?” She explained to me that they are also sick of it all, but they have secret shoppers from the health department checking up on them.

MissPiggy’s story brought to mind the following poem by W.H. Auden. I’ve posted it before, but it’s worth revisiting.

It was written in the 1930s, during another rapid expansion of the all-powerful socialist state:

Dueling Lawn Signs

Sundance at Conservative Tree House asked for readers to supply what he calls “ground reports” on the upcoming election. Since the current political atmosphere is so toxic, and most polls are so obviously bogus, collective anecdotal accounts of what’s happening are all we have to go on.

Rather than clog up his comments section with my remarks, I’ll post them here instead. But first I want to recycle a joke from four years ago. It was relevant in October of 2016, and it’s even more relevant today:

“When this dreadful election is finally over, I hope we can still be friends, even if we are in different internment camps.”

*   *   *   *   *   *   *   *   *   *   *   *   *   *   *

During the last two or three weeks, the number of campaign signs in people’s yards in this part of Central Virginia has really exploded. In the region I’m personally familiar with — which comprises a rough triangle having Charlottesville, Lynchburg, and Farmville as its vertices — Trump signs outnumber Biden signs. In my immediate neighborhood, however, the Biden signs are ahead. My neighbors are mostly black, which I assume is one of the main reasons for the difference.

In fact, putting a Trump sign in the front yard is the same as saying, “A white family lives here.” I have yet to see a single Trump sign in the yard of a house whose inhabitants are definitely black.

The converse is not true, however. There are enough white Gutmenschen in the area — especially retired transplants from Yankeeland — to give Biden a strong showing among the palefaces. Among the white population, the Biden signs are usually found in front of middle class or upper middle class houses. A trailer or double-wide inhabited by white people is almost certain to have a Trump sign, if it has any sign at all.

A couple of other correlations are worth noting. The first is the display of American flags. I haven’t seen any yards with Biden signs that also fly an American flag. The Trump supporters, on the other hand, are very likely to have a flag on a pole, or hanging over the front porch.

For the last year or so I’ve noticed a sign that some people post in their front yards: “Love thy Neighbor / NO Exceptions”. I wondered what particular import the message had, but now that election season has kicked in, the correlation is clear: If a “Love thy Neighbor” yard has a campaign sign, it’s inevitably a Biden sign.

This leads me to conclude that the “Love thy Neighbor” initiative is about race. I take it to mean: “You lousy racist! You need to be high-minded like me.” It’s virtue-signaling, in other words. It can be found in the front yards of both black people and white people.

*   *   *   *   *   *   *   *   *   *   *   *   *   *   *

There’s no way the entire Commonwealth of Virginia will go for Trump. The demographics of the state are now dominated by dense concentrations of snowflakes, federal employees, and culture-enrichers in the Wretched Hive of Scum and Villainy, a.k.a. Northern Virginia, plus the more progressive zip codes of the Richmond area and Tidewater. And Charlottesville, of course, which habitually votes just to the left of Ann Arbor.

Taken county by county, Trump would win, but the majority of the population in the Old Dominion is loyal to the Communist Democrat Party.

Preparing for the Boogaloo

In his latest guest-post, Matt Bracken reviews “Civil Defense Manual”, which has been linked on Gates of Vienna’s sidebar for the last few weeks.

The Civil Defense Manual, by Jack Lawson:
How to Prepare and Protect Your Neighborhood from Disaster, Riot and Civil Unrest

A review by Matt Bracken
October 14, 2020

If you are reading this, chances are good that you consider yourself a liberty-loving patriotic American. You might also consider yourself, as I certainly do, a “prepper,” that is, an all-around survival and preparedness advocate. As preppers, we’ve long been anticipating crises ranging from financial collapse, to violent insurrection, to natural or even man-made disasters that could extinguish our electrical grid in a flash. Now, deep into 2020, the year of the Chinese Coronavirus pandemic and widespread Marxist-inspired riots, it appears that we may at last be on the doorstep of the long-anticipated SHTF scenario. Revolutionary Communists, (currently wearing the Antifa and BLM brands, and with the tacit support of today’s far-left Democrat Party), have declared that under no circumstances will they accept a Trump election victory. Instead, they promise to take their revolution to the streets, in violent nationwide riots beyond any yet seen in American history.

Across the political spectrum, the number of Americans who believe that a second Civil War is imminent is at an all-time high. This heightened concern is why, for example, it costs three to four times more to rent a truck to move household goods from a liberal to a conservative state than vice versa. This is also why common rifle and pistol ammunition is at unprecedented scarcity, and when it can be found, it can only be purchased at exorbitant cost. A hundred rounds of standard 5.56, .308 or 7.62X39 rifle ammo can easily fit into your jacket pocket, and today they might cost you a hundred dollars — a buck a bullet — if you can find them. The reason for their shortage at this moment in history is that millions of Americans have come to the bitter realization that they might actually need them to defend their lives, families and property.

By comparison to the extra cartridges, what value would you place on obtaining the equivalent of a master’s degree in surviving through a period of violent insurrection, or even civil war? I’d imagine much more than the hundred or so dollars you might spend for a similar number of extra rounds for your rifle or carbine.

So, what is it about Jack Lawson’s Civil Defense Manual that makes it so valuable? First of all, it’s nearly a thousand pages long, making it too big to fit inside one book cover. Instead, it’s broken into two volumes that are sold as a set. And the two volumes are large in size, measuring 11 X 8.5 inches, typeset in a generous 14-point font. In the end, the CDM is meant to be readable even by candlelight, post SHTF. And it’s written so that ordinary people can understand it, completely free of esoteric military or technical jargon, with key sentences bolded to stand out.

The CDM is not just another long list of expensive survival gear and equipment, nor is it advice to move to a remote mountain in Montana. The CDM is much more practical than that. In fact, Lawson’s most essential idea, the Neighborhood Protection Plan, or NPP, can be adapted to any location and situation, from the urban high-rise, to apartment complexes, to single-family homes in the suburbs, and to rural areas. The critical concept behind the NPP is that the inhabitants of an individual home, townhouse or apartment building cannot stand alone and successfully defend themselves against determined attacks by roving gangs of armed predatory thugs. It will be too late to defend your single domicile when your neighbors’ homes are going up in flames.

A Neighborhood Protection Plan is not a glorified Neighborhood Watch, which is a passive arrangement whereby neighbors communicate with existing local Law Enforcement. Nor is an NPP a “militia” or any other kind of independent paramilitary force. In the first case, the activation of an NPP is predicated upon the inability or even the unwillingness of local LE to protect a neighborhood or other area during a crisis. In the second case, forming a militia or other paramilitary force implies that this group is planning to undertake proactive operations extending beyond the defense of a neighborhood and its immediate surrounding area. The Civil Defense Manual does cover the entire range of defensive options from existing Neighborhood Watch programs, through Neighborhood Protection Plans, and ultimately to coordination between separate NPPs for the mutual protection of wider regions, with the ultimate goal of restoring pre-SHTF civility, public safety, and restarting any disrupted infrastructure.

Lawson provides a sample command structure for his NPP concept, as well as methods to organize the NPP well in advance of a catastrophic series of events that might require a self-defense force to be stood up in days or even hours, instead of in weeks.

In the author’s vision, the elected Primary Leader of the local NPP is given overall command authority during emergency situations, but tellingly, the Secondary NPP Leader in Lawson’s suggested hierarchy is also the Fire Chief. During a breakdown of civil order, and the collapse of local infrastructure, when existing fire departments might be unable to respond, the protection of homes within the NPP against the risk of fire becomes second in importance only to protection against armed gangs, gangs which might be using Molotov cocktail firebombs as terror weapons to elicit surrender. It should also be recognized that during a period when the normal infrastructure might be disrupted, and running water and electricity are unavailable, the threat to structures from open-flame cooking and heating fires, and even candles, will be extremely high.

Lysenkoisms

“Stick with the science” is the mantra of politicians and public health officials during the COVID-19 era. Our Israeli correspondent MC takes a peek behind the curtain of politicized “science”.

Lysenkoisms

by MC

The problem with propaganda — the idea of lying to the populace — is what happens when the lies are exposed.

This is highly relevant in the current scenario of lockdowns and face masks. See this article. The science raises questions as to the motivation of lockdown authorities, and those authorities have to respond with Lysenkoised ‘science’ in order to defend their actions.

At the behest of Joseph Stalin, Trofim Lysenko used politicised junk ‘science’ to validate lies.

Lysenko forced farmers to plant seeds very close together since, according to his “law of the life of species”, plants from the same “class” never compete with one another. Lysenko played an active role in the famines that killed millions of Soviet people and his practices prolonged and exacerbated the food shortages. The People’s Republic of China under Mao Tse-Tung adopted his methods starting in 1958, with calamitous results, culminating in the Great Chinese Famine of 1959 to 1962, in which some 15 million people died. At least 30 million died of starvation.

Outside the Soviet Union, scientists spoke critically: British biologist S. C. Harland lamented that Lysenko was “completely ignorant of the elementary principles of genetics and plant physiology” (Bertram Wolfe, 2017). Criticism from foreigners did not sit well with Lysenko, who loathed Western “bourgeois” scientists and denounced them as tools of imperialist oppressors. He especially detested the American-born practice of studying fruit flies, the workhorse of modern genetics. He called such geneticists “fly lovers and people haters”.

Unable to silence Western critics, Lysenko tried to eliminate all dissent within the Soviet Union. Scientists who refused to renounce genetics found themselves at the mercy of the secret police. The lucky ones simply got dismissed from their posts and were left destitute. Hundreds if not thousands of others were rounded up and dumped into prisons or psychiatric hospitals. Several were sentenced to death as enemies of the state or starved in their jail cells (most notably the botanist Nikolai Vavilov). Before the 1930s, the Soviet Union had a strong genetics community. Lysenko gutted it, and by some accounts set Russian biology and agronomy back a half-century.

One can immediately see the model here: the mal-educated Lysenko develops an opinion that catches the attention of technically illiterate, but powerful politicians. Lysenko’s opinions are in accord with political (religious) dogma and ambitions, so they MUST be correct.

Rather than validate the opinion using such tools as observation, peer review and the repeatability of experimentation, the ‘science’ becomes ‘settled’ by consensus and opinion rather than open, reviewable research.

Millions starved to death because Lysenko’s erroneous opinions became official state ‘science’.

In Lysenko’s case, the subject matter was the growing problem of falling crop yields due to the inherent problems of collectivisation, which was a mandated (but unproven) ritual belief of religious communism. The communist ‘New Man’ would become a super-farmer if he would just do as the regime demanded.

Lysenkoism is not just limited to agriculture. We can see it working in medicine (face masks, lockdowns and vaccines) and climate change (the great carbon dioxide hoax).

Antifas Evicted to Make Room for Culture-Enrichers

Well, it seems that I was wrong last night when I said that the eviction of the Antifas from Liebig 34 in Berlin was a NIMBY issue. According to the tweet below, the anarchists had to be put out on the street so that refugees could be welcomed into the building:

Many thanks to MissPiggy for translating the tweet:

This is the real point of the eviction of Liebig 34: The building owner wants to accommodate “Refugees” in the building. Thanks to the uncontrolled mass migration forced by leftists and “We Have Room” propaganda, this is only logical.

[According to a SPIEGEL article] Padovicz wants to accommodate refugees in the house in the future. It is “the most likely scenario,” says his lawyer Mr. Wrobel. Talks are being held with possible new tenants.

The question now is: Will the anarchists take umbrage at being displaced by culture-enrichers?

Also: If so, will it make them reconsider their long-time advocacy for open borders?

The Ascendancy of the InterNazis

The Antifas or “anti-fascists” were all but unknown to Americans until after the election of Donald Trump four years ago. In the fall and winter of 2016-2017 they appeared in “black bloc” gear on the streets of American cities like Minerva bursting full-grown from the head of Zeus. In the ensuing years they have continued to ravage public spaces across the country, and have joined forces with Black Lives Matter to the point that the shock troops of the two groups are all but indistinguishable.

Because I specialize in European issues, I had long been familiar with Antifa (and their closely-related cousins, the Autonomer in Denmark and Unite Against Fascism [UAF] in the UK). Back in 2007 and 2008, when I was first researching the groups, I spent a long time tracking down their websites in various Western countries. The Antifas seemed to have their greatest presence in Belgium, the Netherlands, Sweden, and Germany. They were also to be found in other Western European countries, with the exception of Britain, which had the UAF instead.

When I looked for an American franchise of Antifa, I discovered that it was vestigial — there was almost no Antifa presence in the USA. Violent far-left activism was left to other Marxist groups, such as International A.N.S.W.E.R. Antifa per se was virtually non-existent in the USA.

How times have changed!

And they changed suddenly, just after November 8, 2016. Someone turned on the spigots and the money started to flow to the black bloc groups all over the country. The black and red flags on their banners became a familiar sight on television news reports. Their customary paraphernalia — rocks, iron bars, baseball bats, and heavy-duty fireworks — could be seen in videos recorded on the streets of major cities with buildings and vehicles burning in the background.

The same sort of sight had long been familiar in Western Europe. More than twelve years ago El Inglés and our Flemish correspondent VH did extensive research on the European Antifas. Relevant excerpts from two posts, originally published in September and October of 2008, are reproduced below.

From “The InterNazis”, September 26, 2008

The excluded portions of this post were topical to the news of that time, but still make for interesting reading. See the original for the full text.

The term “Nazi” is an abbreviation of the German-language version of the phrase “National Socialist”, and referred to the totalitarian socialist ideology which arose in Germany during the 1920s and 1930s. The modifier “National” was applied to “Socialist” in order to distinguish Hitler’s brand of Socialism from Communism, which was “international Socialism”, as represented by the Comintern and directed by Stalin. The Nazis were very much Socialists, but wanted nothing to do with the vile cosmopolitan Bolshevik version of Socialism, which Hitler considered an alien Jewish ideology, unfit for his vision of the Aryan future.

Nazism was destroyed by the Allies in 1945, and Communism crumbled of its own weight in 1991. But International Socialism did not die. By the 1970s it had spread throughout the institutions of the Free World like a metastasized cancer in the body politic of Western Civilization.

[…]

In 21st-century Europe, InterNazis can be found most frequently in the various chapters of Antifa, also known as Anti-fascist Action (with variants in several languages) or AFA. The affinity of Antifa for the Nazi ideology and iconography can be observed in the logos [above].

The stylized “A” in the middle symbol is a common logo for the Anarchists, of which the Antifas form a particularly virulent branch. The right-hand symbol with its lightning-bolt “A” is from the 1930s. It was used by the Nazis to represent the Sturmabteilung, the Storm Troopers, also known as the Brown Shirts. These were Hitler’s bully-boys, the high-spirited lads who took to the streets to beat up Communists, Jews, free-thinkers, and anyone else considered to be an enemy of the German people.

Is the resemblance of the SA symbol to the Antifa logo a coincidence? I have no idea, but it’s a fitting emblem for the thugs who beat up the Jews and little old ladies who came to Cologne last weekend to protest Islamization.

What bears the most striking resemblance to the methodology of the Storm Troopers is the symbiosis among the Antifa groups, the police, and local officials. The Autonomer are performing an identical function to that of the Sturmabteilung: they carry out illegal political violence on behalf of a totalitarian state which deems itself to be beyond the rule of law.

In this they also closely resemble the Comités de Defensa de la Revolución, the “Committees for the Defense of the Revolution”, a communist institution established in Castro’s Cuba. The Committees are allegedly “spontaneous” manifestations of popular outrage against the enemies of Socialism, and are employed to harass and intimidate any dissidents who dare to question the regime.

Unlike the Storm Troopers of 1930s Germany, the Antifas are international, and represent an ideology that explicitly seeks the destruction of the nation-state and the abolition of national identity. Their mission is to deconstruct the nations of Europe so that Socialist Multiculturalism may be implemented with a minimum of resistance.

Our Flemish correspondent VH has been thinking about these things, and he’s also been doing what I’d like to do, but don’t have time for: researching the European Antifas and all their ideological cousins. He sent me an email yesterday with an overview of the situation, and with his kind permission I am posting it below:

Baron,

I share your interest in the Militant Left. Every now and then I dive into their agitprop, hoping to find a key to echo it back to them, but most of all to their potential recruits: the brainwashed adolescents and the ignorant Leftist enablers of Arabization.

A few notes:

There maybe were no more than a thousand or at most a few thousand counter-demonstrators in Cologne, maybe half of them Blackhoods, the rest ignorant Gutmenschen. They had a schedule; they practiced blockades way in advance, gave AFA training (never give your name!), sabotaged transport, moved around like regiments, used sympathizers in media-sensitive front lines, and only needed a few strategic locations and some pin-pointed violence to achieve the optimal effect.

Hooray for Chirectomy! Let’s Hear it for Lapidation!

The German anti-sharia activist Michael Stürzenberger is renowned for his public events in Munich. The clip below is an excerpt from a six-hour live stream at an event that took place yesterday in Berlin. In it you’ll see Mr. Stürzenberger hand the microphone to a Muslim, who celebrates Islam’s religious customs, including amputation for theft and the stoning of adulterers. At the end of the clip Mr. Stürzenberger notes the applause for these practices coming from part of the audience.

Many thanks to MissPiggy for the translation, and to Vlad Tepes and RAIR Foundation for the subtitling. The translator includes this additional information:

The BPE team was with Michael Stürzenberger on Friday 9 October from 12 to 19 o’clock at Alexanderplatz in Berlin. There were exciting discussions with interested citizens in the capital. It was quite dicey at Alexanderplatz. A bottle was thrown at Michael Stürzenberger, the perpetrator was held by the police. However, there were only a few police officers on site, since the majority of the police were busy with the evacuation of the “Liebig 34” [to be featured in later videos].
