Germans never protest, they simply don't. It's not in their nature. The Germans are stoic, sturdy nation and very rarely lose their shit (unlike the French for example).
Nils Melzer - UN Special Rapporteur on Torture; Human Rights Chair, Geneva Academy; Professor of International Law, University of Glasgow; Vice-President IIHL, Sanremo and twitter wont verify him after hes going after the police involved in the human rights incidents
The German Police in Berlin need to have their backs lashed for this behaviour! There is NO excuse for preventing citizens from the ONLY means of public dissent available in a functioning democracy!
However, on Sunday 01.08.2021 a protest took place in Berlin despite it being "Forbidden" by the state.
Judges in the German capital have moved to ban a number of weekend demonstrations amid fears they will lead to a rise in coronavirus infections. Police expect protesters to travel to Berlin nonetheless.
Which is a little strange considering that not a week earlier the Pride parade took place with some 80,000 participants.
Now, the rational might say "oh the courts were right, the covid protestors wont wear masks and wont socially distance". Which generally speaking is true; However, it must be stated quite clearly... sweet F*ck all social-distancing and/or mask wearing took place at the pride parade.
Now, One might say that the German courts are completely Hypocrites, but that would be understating it. It's a blatant move to silence the dissent and a step closer to the totalitarian Chinese state the western govs are so desperate to emulate for some weird fucking reason.
You know something is desperately wrong. When 10,000 Germans attend a protest explicitly forbidden by the state - thereby breaking the unwritten German rule of "Ordnug muss Sein" and risk being called "#Querdenker" by the #KonformDenker (and thus #Brownshirts) - Querdenker is a dreaded title in Germany, because to think laterally and outside-of-conformity in Germany implies there is something wrong with you, as the mass-mind could...never.. be.. wrong... (except y'know... that little... nazi thing... and like the DDR thing and...) - as well as risk being beaten up by the German Police.. well.. then you know it, there is something seriously wrong in paradise.
Ordnung Muss Sein, even if they look like Nazis
Here are some wonderful examples of the German Police fucking up these disgusting #Querdenker
Civic Ethics 101 Lesson: in any democracy, protest is just about the ONLY tool that allows people to express their dislike of a regimes policy. If that right is explicitly forbidden, the amount of courage it takes to stand up to the state is phenomenal and that moment in time becomes foreboding.
These are not just Querdenker they are literally buffers against totalitarianism
Please notice the mask being worn here ;) The German court was WRONG
Something to think about.
Whats that wonderfully crazy American saying:
The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants.
- Thomas Jefferson
PS! I am VERY pro-pride.. so don't even start that shit.
Isn't it sad I have to make a statement like that above?
