Now it happened. The opinion of the Federal office for the protection of the Constitution (BfV) is open to the AfD completely on the Internet and in order for each user to read. Although the news service has classified the 442-page paper as classified and "for official use only".
That has not prevented the online platform netzpolitik.org to present to the Public the report was for the BfV the basis of the classification of the AfD as a "test case" and the associations "Young Alternative", and "wings" as a suspected case. Possibly a criminal case because of secret treason. But it is more than a legal consequence.
national socialism belittles
The Federal office for the protection of the Constitution, and the Federal Ministry of the interior the opinion itself would have to make it public. Already in view of the political Dimension. The news service certifies that the AfD and her two Hardcore groups of a problematic relationship to the Central values of democracy. In the paper is of defiance of the people and the rule of Law. Also, national socialism is downplayed. Reading a the concentrated propaganda from the ranks of the right-wing populists. This is a danger for democracy should be aware of all the Democrats.
It corresponds to the protection of the Constitution, to be an early-warning system. The telling of the Republic in time, where and how the enemies of the democracy act. In the case of the AfD it is, the BfV is almost exemplary. The Propaganda of the right-wing populists is meticulously dissected. This was also urgently needed. The AfD radicalized, in part, they are indistinguishable, ideologically, from right-wing extremists. Why the detailed report is to be taught only in a compressed Form to the Public, is not evident. Especially since the Federal office called the Talk of the AfD politicians and other publicly available sources. No V-man needs to fear his exposure. And the criteria of the BfV in the analysis of the AfD should be no secret. It comes to the standards of the basic law.
The protection of the Constitution wins, if he comes to the Public, as long as the messenger service are not affected to pain limits. That Netzpolitik.org in 2015, the criminal charges of the former BfV President Hans-Georg Maaßen captured as a part of a secret budget of the authority had been posted on the Internet, it is understandable. A news service has to protect themselves from prying eyes of the Public, and thus also of extremists and spies in internal processes.More about
"test case" AfD opinion on the AfD publishedFrank Jansen
But in the case of AfD in the Bundestag, do not even have access to the complete paper. Because the AfD sits in Parliament? That would be a bad Argument. It was foreseeable that the party would complain. In the dispute, the AfD will now initiate, you need to the opinion. Before the court, equality of Arms applies. And why is the Federal office of the AfD should not hold with the opinion of the mirror? The ugly sight would be earned.
