The far-right politics refers to the social movement that ‘supports supremacy of certain individuals or groups deemed to be innately superior who are to be more valued than those deemed to be innately inferior’. The most extreme-right movements, such as the Nazis, have pursued oppression and genocide against groups of people on the basis of their alleged inferiority.
It was far-right politics in Germany that brought that nation to ignite the two World Wars.
Following the fall of Nazi Germany and the dissolution of the Nazi Party in 1945, the far-right in Germany quickly reorganized itself. The Deutsche Rechtspartei was founded in 1946, succeeded by the Deutsche Reichspartei in 1950, and several other parties. The currently most successful movement is the far-right National Democratic Party of Germany (NPD). In the 2006 Mecklenburg-Vorpommern state election, the NPD received 7.3 percent of the vote and thus achieved state representation there.
The German government tried to ban the National Democratic Party in 2003, using a clause in the constitution outlawing neo-Nazi parties. But the Constitutional Court refused to hear the case because the government had infiltrated the party with informants. Insisting it rejected violence, the NPD won 5 percent of the votes in Saxony’s state elections in 2009.
In 2011, the Verfassungsschutz (Federal German intelligence) reported a total of 25,000 right-wing extremists in Germany, including 5,600 neo-Nazis. The Verfassungsschutz says that both the number of neo-Nazis and the potential for violent acts have increased, especially among the growing number of Autonome Nationalisten (‘Independent Nationalists’) who gradually replace the declining number of Nazi Skinheads.
In 1980, a 27-year old German named Gundolf Koehler exploded a bomb at the Oktoberfest in Munich, killing himself and 12 others. Documents were found on Koehler’s body linking him to the paramilitary Defense Sport Group (Wehrsportgruppe) led by Karl-Heinz Hoffmann, who saw himself as the ‘spiritual descendant’ of Hitler.
German neo-Nazis attacked accommodations for refugees and migrant workers in several towns in the early 1990s. Neo-Nazis were involved in the murders of three Turkish girls in a 1992 arson attack in Mölln. A 1993 arson attack by far-right skinheads on the house of a Turkish family in Solingen resulted in the deaths of two women and three girls. In 2000, ten immigrants, most of them Jewish, were injured in a bomb attack in Dusseldorf.
Beginning in the late 1990s and early 2000s, Neo-Nazis started holding demonstrations on the anniversary of the Bombing of Dresden in World War II. The 2009 march was organized by Junge Landsmannschaft Ostdeutschland, which is supported by the National Democratic Party of Germany. In 2011 neo-Nazis were linked to ten murders.
German law forbids the production of pro-Nazi materials, although they have been smuggled into the country. But some German neo-Nazis use early symbols of the Reichskriegsflagge (the official name of the war flag used by the German armed forces from 1867 to 1945) predating the introduction of the Nazi swastika, and therefore are legal in Germany.
Neo-Nazi rock bands such as Landser have been outlawed in Germany, yet bootleg copies of their albums printed in the United States and other countries are still sold in the country. German neo-Nazi websites mostly depend on internet servers in the US and Canada. They often use symbols that are reminiscent of the swastika, and adopt other symbols used by the Nazis, such as the sun cross, wolf’s hook and black sun.
CNN says of the growing far-right movement: ‘For generations, politics in Europe has been defined in terms of class: the contest between left and right, socialists against conservatives or Christian Democrats. It is still the prevailing divide, but recent election results and the resurgence of far-right groups suggest the issue of identity is beginning to intrude.’
Does the Bible say anything about this movement? It does not mention the movement by name, but it vividly depicts the actions of this movement in the end times.
In a nutshell, the neo-Nazi party will soon emerge as the strongest party in Germany. Germany itself will lead a far-right union of ten European nations, which will sway world politics in its favor. An extreme-right ruler, whom the Bible calls the Beast, will then succeed where Hitler and Napoleon failed – attack America, Britain and their allied nations and lead them captive to other lands, as Assyria did to ancient Israel.
Keep watching the far-right movement in Germany, and Germany’s military rise on the world scene.
Watch also the rise of the far-right movement in Japan, which, as in Germany, is growing rapidly. Japan had allied with Germany against Britain in the last World War. Watch also the growing alliance between Germany and Japan.
