(PBS)   Leader of far-right group who stockpiled weapons and prepared for violence was arrested but not tried on terror charges. The good news is that it wasn't in the US but in Germany, which has no history at all of this sort of thing getting out of hand   (pbs.org) divider line

Amateurs.  The US are the experts at being fascist lunatics now.

Those are just reconstructive anthropologists. Sei still.

Once all the Germans were war-like and mean,
But that couldn't happen again.
We taught them a lesson in 1918,
And they've hardly bothered us at all since then.

On the bright side if history is any guide we'll be the economic powerhouse of the EU in 60-70 years tops!

And yet, look who was the last president. And, don't act innocent. Money and humans backed that guy. Even while he said the worst things. And even at he failed at doing their bare minimum of leading. His supporters didn't bale. Money kept backing this man.
Why you keep doing business with him should be an indictments of your morals.
But I guess it doesn't matter if you throw our nation into a civil war because you'll just move to wherever you want to and leave the rest of us to pick up the pieces.
Nice.
Don't ever cry innocence again ladies and gentlemen.

Coming up next: Leader of German far-right group turns out to be  "undercover informant" recruited by the BND.

The Germans are fairly good at documentation.  It's a lot of rope they're giving him.  Perhaps the trail will go further into the forest or to that one place they'd never look -- Bielefeld.

This seems like a good time to wonder if most of Fark knows that the arsonist behind the Reichstag fire is still a matter of some debate and the original man found guilty of the crime (by the Nazis) has since been pardoned (by the not-Nazis).

You didn't read the article did you?  And you never read history book either.

I was told Germany and the USA culturally share a lot of things, largely because it had a large German immigration early on, and I'm starting to see connections.

Meanwhile, Putin and Xi laugh their asses off knowing that they actually got the achievement for an any% speedrun to being president for life.

Fight like hell for your democratic rights, because it doesn't take a war to remove them, only apathy and complacency.

Oh please. Let me know when any of our militias are even close to the Baader-Meinhof Gang or the Red Army Fraktion.

Not to downplay the risks and I'd just as soon it never gets that far, but the militias in America can't hold a candle to the left-wing radicals of the 70s.

He was probably guilty of starting a fire; he'd said he was going to before and he was there that night.

He most certainly not guilty of starting the three other simultaneous fires that ultimately burned down the Reichstag.

So you're saying even Germany knows what "domestic terrorism" is and isn't. Too bad the US trying to weaponize the charge against US Citizens.
