Police officers made a visit at Björn Höcke’s home. The opposition leader in the parliament of the state of Thuringen is accused of having posted hate on social media. What is there to search in a home when the “crime” is committed on the internet? The officers just want to see if Björn Höcke’s words were his own words and not maybe … Lock, a squirrel! It is a classic example of intimidation and government overreach in Merkel’s “best Germany we ever had.” (note: That was her last election campaign slogan.)
Carola Rackete is entering a harbour without permission, hits a boat of the border control, and is now suing over hurt feelings. Salvini would spread “hate” and the feeling (?) of delegitimisation. She ultimately loses her “physical human dignity” while Salvini keeps categorizing her as a rich, spoilt brat commie.
Alerted to medical predicaments of her passengers, Captain Carola Rackete navigated her ship into an Italian harbour without permission. Italien authorities have arrested her. She had consciously broken the law, but could she have avoided it? Probably not at that stage. But what let up to the situation? And what role in the big picture does she play? Should she still be punished for it? I confess that I don’t hold all the answers. An open talk.
