Germany's Far Right is Surging | Decade of Hate

As a deadly pandemic engulfed the globe, Germany’s far right saw an opportunity. It used panic, isolation, and people’s need for answers as a chance to grow its hateful brand.

Everyday people are marching side-by-side with fascists, and somehow far-right extremism is a major issue in Germany once again.

In this episode of Decade of Hate, host Tim Hume looks at some of the country’s key conspiracy theorists, and what makes some of them so dangerous.

In this intersection between COVID-deniers and neo-Nazis, we investigate why Germany is now a hot spot for people rejecting science and authority, and explain why that is seriously bad news.

It is especially stupid in a country that fought decades in the cold war against socialism and communism. Yes, our taxes are pretty high, but we have a functioning social net and healthcare, free education and a lot of other benefits. So thank god for high taxes!

And I been to Germany, its not socialist but oh lord your taxes are fucking high.

  • Nationalists need to take back their countries, tear down their current bureaucracies, and burn the banks. Global leaders and NGO's dropped the ball on this whole COVID crisis and have fucked up the lives of so many people. America's economy is a complete bubble on life support printing money like there is no tomorrow while the masses sit inside thinking the plague is happening outside their front door. I hope the resurgence of the right happens everywhere and we restore order to a world that has become a playground for war profiteers, politicians, and their handlers.

  • The Far Left are the real Hate groups, fascists and extremists. There's no far right there. Ordinary Germans are not marching with far right groups instead they are sick of BS pushed by the government. These people portrayed are sick of the COVID-19, lockdowns , the BS, the legacy media, the EU, the illegal immigration and Merkel's extreme policies. The French are waking up too. It's the left who are in power and abusing it. This is a Vice production, so they will naturally push fear and propaganda. Give the people back their freedom, it's that simple.

  • It's counter culture. This is inevitable when their entire culture and way of life has drastically and forcefully been changed by extreme left wing politics, progressive education, biased media, mass immigration and white guilt. Whether you think the new modern 'progressive' ways are positive or negative, there is not a hope in hell everyone will take it. It's gone too far. I wish far anything wasn't necessary, but it is a natural reaction.

In fact, most Germans find it ridiculous how the government handles the Corona crisis. However, these kinda people are not right-wing as opposed to the violent and racist protesters. There is no way we're getting back to 1940 like the most comments are assuming.

    • @M. R ppl who are against the corona laws ( in terms of how they are done today) or ppl who demonstrade against our bad politiks ect are not automaticly right wing. of course there where some NeoNazis and Antifa´s and some "Reichsbürger"and other minoritys. but the gathering wasnt right wing. not the one in berlin and not the one in dresden. but if you dont confirm with the Politik in germany you will get labeld as such a group nearly 100%. and what vice was talking here was just BS. the gathering wasnt right wing and the right wing dont extent that much either. but when more groups get called right wing, you surely can pretend it. the AFD (party) was startet as a left wing party and got labeld right wing, there for more ppl from the right support the AFD now. but most ppl are voting for the AFD because they arent happy with our politik, and it is the only party that isnt copy pasted like the others. (i dont support AFD btw) but the only reason that the AFD is getting more and more sup. is that the ppl are sick of the other partys. this dosent make it right wing... i know enouth ppl from the left that join these demos (voters from the Linke and appd ect) and trust me, these demos are not right wing by any means. they get labled as right wing. but i would love to hear why you are saying that these ppl at the Berlin (and dresden) demo where right wing. most of the ppl there are relativly neutral. and the police was quite nice to them / in contra to the normal right/left demos.

R if you have 5right wing ppl out of 100, does this make evrybody right wing ? i dont think so. in germany the numbers of extremist right is far lower than the extemist left wing. and most ppl are dont count to any of the sides. but they get put into the small % of idiots (both sides). you are not left or right only bc you went to a demo, and other idiots did some bs. and rushing into the Reichstag isnt a big deal noa days. the security (today) is a joke, you dont need many ppl for this and the laws are way to weak for the police to do something against it. and most crimes in the last years dont came from the extremist sides.(L/R) the general puplic in germany is unhappy but anybody who says something gets trown into one of these sides. mostly to the right side bc its an easy target. btw sry for my bad english.

You can hardly have normal discussions with people these days. The media in Germany have become absolutely great. Almost everything switched in the same way and directed according to the parties. If it goes on like this it will be even worse than in the DDR ‼️ It's normal that the people getting angry.
