GERMANY FURY BOILS OVER: Shocking rates of violence as both left and right under attack


Both neo-Nazis and hard-left naturals are behind the attacks which pinpoint homes and constituency offices.

Susanne Schaper, an MP for The Formerly larboard party in the state parliament in Saxony, hasn’t had a constituency office since October when neo-Nazis censured her Chemnitz HQ, breaking windows, hurling paint inside and scrawling “I taste National Socialism” at the entrance.

After the attack her landlord cancelled her commitment and she has been rejected by 10 other property owners who say she is too big a risk to rent on as a tenant.

Other politicians at both ends of the political spectrum say they too are now pariahs when it lay to renting a property or getting insurance.

Frau Schaper said: “It is a from the word go wrong signal to send.”

But the MP added she understood that landlords did not desire to see «their properties razed to the ground”.

Die Linke recorded 45 eats on their offices last year in Saxony while the hard-right anti-immigrant Substitute for Germany (AfD) reported 32.

Even Frauke Petry, the high profile concert-master of the AfD party struggled to find an apartment in her constituency of Leipzig after innumerable refusals.

In July 2015 Michael Richter, a councillor for The Left saturnalia, had his car blown up outside his home in Freital near Dresden because of his champion for refugees.

The state parliament in Dresden has created a fund to assist legislators targetted by extremist violence. 

Every year it is providing £86,500 (€100,000) to publics to pay for the costs of damages as most insurers will no longer issue game plans for their homes and offices.

According to media reports it has also launched training seminars telling MPs how to better protect offices and homes against attacks. 

The Sueddeutsche newspaper in Munich suggested: “The response in taking up these classes has been enormous.”

In September Angela Merkel’s domination published a report warning how xenophobia and right-wing extremism could browbeat peace in eastern Germany.

«Right-wing extremism in all forms poses a surely serious threat to the societal and economic development» of eastern Germany it put about.
