Germany on the Brink
by Robert Spencer
In Stuttgart, Germany, last week, violent Leftist and Islamic supremacist demonstrators violently menaced anti-jihad activists – giving a sobering picture of where Germany, Europe, and the U.S. as well are headed if we don't stand up and resolutely defend our freedom now.
Thursday afternoon I spoke in Stuttgart at the invitation of the human rights group Pax Europa. The event was well advertised, and so the thuggish Leftist/Islamic supremacist alliance mobilized and was out in full force.
About a thousand protesters from the frequently violent hard-Left Antifa group showed up, along with around 500 German riot police. "Antifa" stands for "Anti-fascism," but if any fascism was on display, it was from the "anti-fascists," who did their best to destroy the Pax Europa event. They were menacing people, starting fights, banging drums, blowing whistles, and chanting Leftist and Communist agitprop slogans. One young man from Antifa came up to me as I was standing right in front of a line of German police and said, "You're lucky there are so many police here today." He was not expressing solidarity.
