Some people seem to be everywhere at once. Who can say whether Dennis Prager hosts a radio show, writes scholarly books about Judaism or runs the web enterprise ‘PragerU’? He is all and does it all. Likewise father of seven children Götz Kubitschek runs the literature publishing house ‘Antaios’, operates a book retail distribution service, works an organic-food farm and is the editor-in-chief of his own magazine ‘Sezession.’ Secret service ‘Verfassungsschutz’ will now be allowed to tap his private communication and use secret spies against him and his think-tank ‘Institute for State Politics’ (German: Insitut für Staatspolitik). They have classified him now as “right-wing extremist.” And we all know what this means. Nazi-like. But the authoritarians on the left don’t admit what their accusations actually mean and ‘right-wing extremist’ is received by the wider public as “Nazi” when in Reality it is one of these fuzzy proxy-words that are too vague to allow for any defence. Kubitschek’s wife Ellen Kositza even speaks Polish!
Outside of that it is NOT the job of intelligence agencies to create or destroy potential majorities in the electorate. And what is important for people to understand is that human rights violations are acceptable here because Germans, like most of us, fall into a schadenfreude-self-booster fallacy. When somebody is hurt, we hope that he deserved it. Government overreach can be built on the sentiment that everybody has it coming.
This month the new hate speech law came into effect. I had made already a video on its limited impact because of its collision with the data protection laws (title: Germany’s vapid fight against speech). The user data on the internet remains rather well protected. In this video I’m talking about the changes to the speech laws themselves where had been altered by the new piece of legislation.
Wikipedia is biased. Water is wet. Nothing new under the sun. Still, I want to present a particularly egregious case.
Naomi Seibt is a talented Youtuber who graduated from college (actually the German equivalent ‘Gymnasium’) at only sixteen years of age. Whilst still in school she competed successfully in widely respected maths and physics competitions, winning second and first place respectively.
Wikipedia, though, paints her differently, very differently, you know … Nazi.
But, of course, this is not the word they used. The innuendo game is well-known already. Random voices are quoted that accuse her of ‘white nationalism’ and ‘antisemitism.’ Outright lies are included. Her poem ‘Sometimes I Keep Silent’ were about ‘nationalism’ when the title already says what it is actually about: the silence.
(Here is the link to her poem. Use an automated translation tool of your choice if you wish.)
One big inspiration of hers is Stefan Molyneux.
– You mean the Canadian Youtuber?
Thank you for asking. I’m not sure because on Naomi Seibt’s Wikipedia entries, both the English and the German one, he is also a “Nazi.” She also “dismisses” the allegations that she were a “puppet” of the right-wing. How dare you! The Heartland Institute – where she worked – is described as pseudo-scientific. And the culprit behind our lack of scientific knowledge is also found: the old white man.
Note: You found Naomi’s channel here. Youtube has banned it.
My video on Correct!v, the obsessive media outlet trying to dig up dirt on her, is here:
