Top German official promotes law that would target bank accounts of “right-wing extremist” donors
By Belle Carter // Feb 19, 2024

Germany's controversial interior minister wants to make sure that the government knows who donates to the rival political party. A new law has been promoted by Interior Minister Nancy Faeser that would allow the government to target the far-right political party donors' bank accounts – this is just how far the current German government is willing to go to stamp out its main opposition.

"No one who donates to a right-wing extremist party should remain undetected," warned the 53-year-old official as she announced the new crackdown on bank accounts and funding for political groups, which notably is believed to include the opposition Alternative for Germany (AfD). "Those who mock the state must deal with a strong state," she added.

The SPD politician stated that her plan is in cooperation with the President of the Office for the Protection of the Constitution (BfV) Thomas Haldenwang and Federal Criminal Police Office head Holger Munch. Under the title "Resolutely combating right-wing extremism," Faeser presented 13 new measures, with a special focus on targeting those who fund her party's political rivals. "The BfV is communicating closely with the financial sector to sensitize it to the problems of financial flows and transactions in connection with right-wing extremism." Also, she is pushing for an "early recognition unit," which will become operative in a few months to allow the government to detect "manipulation and disinformation" campaigns launched by right groups using "AI-generated photos and fake accounts."

She also said that she’s working with regional authorities on preventing right-wing extremists from entering or leaving the country. "German right-wing extremists and foreign autocrats have one thing in common: They want to stoke rage and divide, above all through disinformation," she alleged.

The minister argued that the right-wingers should be prosecuted in the same way as members of organized crime. Thus, the new law. "The German Bundestag should pass the law quickly," said Faeser. In addition, the law would "combat hate on the internet, remove enemies of the constitution from public service and disarm right-wing extremists."

Faeser and her colleagues in the domestic intelligence agency have labeled the AfD a "definitive case of right-wing extremism," making the said party subject to extreme surveillance. If the law is revised and approved, the German government will leverage this designation to target those who donate to the party. "It remains unclear how such targeting would work and what kind of penalties would be directed at someone who donates to a right-wing party or organization; however, Faeser said the BfV would handle the specifics of tracking and targeting donors," Remix News reported, pointing out that the BfV has become the political arm of the left-liberal establishment and rival parties to their power are being actively targeted by the powerful agency.

AfD is Germany's most popular party

Critics argue that the reason why the left-cult German government is targeting AfD is that the latter continues to thrive despite being in a scandal.

The far-right AfD now polls above 20 percent in Germany and it is showing no signs of going away. Earlier this month, it was reported that AfD politicians met with right-wing extremists and neo-Nazi activists to discuss a "masterplan" for mass deportations. This was considered a possible blow to the party's popularity. But it worked otherwise.

Mainstream political leaders condemned the AfD and tens of thousands marched in protest across Germany for seven nights in a row. Back in January, Philip Oltermann and Kate Connolly reported for the Observer that theatergoers attending a staged reading of the original report in Berlin chanted "Everyone, together, against fascism" for 10 minutes when it ended. According to Correctiv, the news outlet to first report the story, the meeting of AfD politicians with the right-wing extremist Identitarian movement prompted intense scrutiny of the party and renewed questions over whether it should be banned. It was raised in the meeting if migrants could be forcibly returned to their countries of origin en masse, even if they are passport-holding German citizens.

"It's been a huge story here," Oltermann said. "And it's a very significant test of where they are as a party, and what kind of support they have." Despite all of this, the AfD's support appears to be unaffected. The party is on track to win three major state elections in the east of Germany in 2024.
