A German government counter-extremism official has labelled people who flee from “multicultural life” in German cities to the countryside as being extremists.
Dirk-Martin Christian, who heads up the Office for the Protection of the Constitution in Saxony, has described people who flee “multicultural life” as found in modern German cities as being “right-wing extremists”.
The official seems to have a growing concern about the political position of Saxony as a whole, with the entirety of East Germany seeing the populist Alternative for Germany party (AfD) rise to become the most popular political group.
According to a report by Die Welt, Christian believes that the political right are the “greatest threat to democracy” in Germany, with the official saying that he is particularly concerned about the growth of anti-government protests in the region, which have been sparked by Germany’s draconian COVID lockdown and dire energy situation.
