Germany Mourns 30 Years of Reunification

Germany is mourning the 30th anniversary of the country’s reunification. In the wake of the fall of the wall today’s president Frank-Walter Steinmeier had lost his column at ‘Demokratie und Recht,’ a magazine financed by the East German dictatorship. The publisher went bankrupt (due to the cruelty of the capitalist, fascist market, i.e. people who rather buy something else). Media and politicians wail about the hardship East Germans faced after their beloved dictatorship fell. All these people wanted, so the wisdom of our elites, was equality. They may have shouted ‘freedom!’ and ‘we are the people!,’ but what they meant is in the eye of the elites and that is constantly aired in the Western media for 30 years and running. After 30 years of constant petty comparisons about wage differences, pension differences, employment rate differences, property ownership differences on TV and in print the elites finally hear them, they hear their cries for freedom and stubbornly translate them into cries for equality. Note: Sorry for the voice-box sound. I noticed it too late.

Users Claim GMX Tinkers with Email Filters to Manipulate Elections

After human rights activist Vera Lengsfeld published an article on the steep increase of censorship complaints against the news article discussion section of German email provider GMX, users wrote to her to report on a much more sinister manipulation effort.

Emails that are not flagged by the user as spam are still moved to the spam folder. Most often the emails in question are newsletters, not just any newsletters, only those that appear to come from conservative senders. The emails typically come from AfD politicians, from MP Erika Steinbach (Merkel’s party CDU), from Jewish columnist Henryk Broder, or even from Lengsfeld herself.

GMX belongs to United Internet AG whose owner Ralph Dommermuth donated € 500.000 to Merkel’s party, probably the largest single donation to any party this year.

Ralph Dommermuth is founder of pressure group ‘Wir zusammen’, a network of companies that claims to serve in the interest of refugees. Most large, notable companies in Germany have signed up to it.

Mr Dommermuth is one of the richest people in the world. Forbes estimates his worth at $4.2 billion. The name of his initiative ‘Wir zusammen’ translates to ‘we together’, which makes it very difficult to find additional information on their finances, their activities, their scandals and so on.

Vera Lengsfeld is a human rights activist once jailed for quoting publicly the constitution of the Eastern German dictatorship on free speech. After her release she studied theology at Oxford and became a member of parliament for the Green Party. She left the Greens for the then conservative party CDU which she is still a critical member of.
