GERMANY: Far-Right Party Calls For Russian-Style Gay “Propaganda” Ban

Gay Star News reports:

A German right-wing party has demanded for LGBTI “propaganda” to be banned. The national conservative Alternative für Deutschland’s (Alternative for Germany, AfD) Baden-Wuerttemberg faction unanimously decided on a “gender motion” during their faction conference last weekend. “The Alternative for Germany strictly rejects any and all governmental propaganda – in schools, mass media or the public space – for certain sexual orientations or behaviors,” the motion reads. “Exempt is the promotion of the classic family.” The document is a milder-worded version of a motion proposed in April, in which party members also spoke out against abortion and birth control. “The Alternative for Germany considers the political-bureaucratic and legal promotion, or rather the active mass media advertising for birth control, abortion and homosexual behavior to be contradictory to the Germans’ vital interests,” the April version read.

Alternative für Deutschland formed in 2013 and presently holds seven of Germany’s 96 seats in the European Parliament. They also hold dozens of seats in Germany’s state legislatures. The party operates a youth wing called Junge Alternative.

    An extremist group in Germany with a youth wing? What could possibly go wrong?

    • Rocketeer500

      I would wager the extremist group has a secret handshake and salute.

        How long will the EU survive the latest surge of immigration?

    • Raising_Rlyeh

      I would like to think that this time Germany wouldn’t allow it to spread.

  • Ugh. Seven seats in the EU Parliament? That’s pathetic. I just don’t get how Germany keeps sliding further and further to the right.

    • Ireyon

      Does that mean the Tea Things are evidence that the USA slides further to the right also?

      The very left PIRATEN was sunk by internal powerstruggles. Basically a bunch of whiny colledge kids and feminists entered the party and turned it into a circus. No one wanted to vote for them anymore. The traditionally left party is almost comically inept and their suggestions are usually met with mockery.

  • Bob Black

    Here we go again….

    • Gustav2

      And with what is going on with the Chunnel, England will be next, it will embrace UKIP even more and leave the EU completely.

      • Robert W. Pierce

        Not going to happen. The majority of businesses, major and small are in total support of EU membership. Big names like Hitachi and several large German companies would pull out of the UK taking hundreds of thousands of jobs with them. Support for staying in is far higher in spite of the migrant problem happening in France right now. UKIP still has only managed to gain one MP out of 650. Those migrants are not from the EU either so they have no right to freedom of movement anywhere in the union or entitled to benefits.

        • Gustav2

          But how many new Greek restaurants does the island need?

          No country has benefitted more from the EU than the UK. No city more than London.

        I’m surprised people aren’t saying, “We WARNED you not to build the Chunnel!”

  • Blake Jordan

    Does Germany not have enough of an embarrassing record when it comes to disenfranchising minorities?

    Maybe Germany will be on the dark side again in WWIII…

        I forget who it was but one French President said, “Two Germanies are good, three is even better.” I never forgot that.

      • Ireyon

        Truth. The last time germany was split the resulting communist DDR was so very friendy to gay people. OH WAIT!

        • BobSF_94117

          East Germany decriminalized homosexuality one year before West Germany did.

          • Ireyon

            And in Russia today it too is decriminalized. Still…

    So, will the backlash against this idiocy be enough to get marriage equality in Germany?

    • Unfortunately, no. The Greek crisis has simply been reinforcing Germany’s long move towards the right in recent years and this won’t affect much.

    • Guest

      I hope so, combined with the forward momentum from Ireland and the US recently, along with much of Europe, the Americas, and South Africa already being on the right side of history.

      • Rich Farias

        Not exactly… right-wing governments are typically reactionary against modernity and change (see also: the rise of European Fascism in the 1930s).

  • BearEyes

  • MattM

    The Germans take their Nazi past very, very seriously. Most are absolutely humiliated by it. Hell, the word Nazi is banned. This is political posturing, nothing more. The nation isn’t coming off of a World War loss and doesn’t have an ax to grind against the rest of the world as it did during Hitler’s rise to power.

    • pepón

      Yeah, ask the Greek about an ax to grind…

  • Hal

    Sounds all German Nazi to me. This country has a history of right wing repression and it ain’t pretty.

  • uhhuhh

    Have they reconstituted the SS yet?

  • Baltimatt

    I don’t think the AfD is on the verge of taking over Germany. This was a resolution passed by the Baden-Württemberg chapter of AfD. Yes, the group bears watching, but it’s not 1933.

    Last Monday, a car was blown up in Freital, near Dresden. The car’s owner is member of die Linke (the Left) party and supported housing refugees in the town. Freital is also home to the founder of the Pegida movement, Lutz Bachmann.

    • Baltimatt

      There has been a major increase in attacks on refugee housing this year.

  • Clungeflaps

    Not surprised at all in the least to see the reactionary right make a comeback in Germany.

    Seeing how they’ve treated Greece the past 5 years has really driven home that they are just as sadistic and evil as they were 80 years ago. Nothing about them has changed. I wish we never would have given them Marshall Plan aid or carried out the Berlin Airlift.

    • Schlukitz

      Thank you for your racist perspective.

      • Clungeflaps

        Sorry you are butthurt by the truth.

        Oh and ‘German’ isn’t a race, you muppet.

        • Schlukitz


          “2. A group of people united or classified together on the basis of common history, nationality, or geographic distribution: the Celtic race.”

          Ergo, Germans, along with other nationalities are a race, you clown.

          Anyone who would post with a pseudonym like yours, must be exceedingly proud of their willful ignorance and stupidity.

          • Clungeflaps

            Oh, OK then, so by your logic, ‘American’ is a singular race. Hahaha yeah I’m sure everyone will go along with that.

            You fail, feel free to keep trying though you bellend.

          • Ireyon

            Since people always scream “racism” when someone criticiszes muslims (a religion) I see no problems giving the same treatment to countries.

          • Schlukitz

            Way to go, flungeclaps. Dispute what the respected source I quoted, plus every other dictionary and encyclopedia ever published has to say about race, even when shown that you are clearly wrong, you keep on defending your stupidity.

            Just keep on flapping your gums so everyone can see what a really dumb fuck you are.

    • Peter Wde

      Yep, forcing all that money on Greece against their will, the fiends!

      • Clungeflaps

        Germany has been bankrupt numerous times, and actually Greece has bailed them out before. Not to mention the US threw billions of dollars at the Germans as ‘punishment’ for WW2. When are they going to pay us back for Marshall Plan aid and the Berlin Airlift?

        Germans are a bunch of vile hypocrites and they know it. They don’t want Greece to be able to pay off their debts, what they really want is the southern countries to be vassal nations.

        • Peter Wde

          Then quick, stop giving all that money to Greece they want to pay their own way…

          • Clungeflaps

            When Germany pays the US back for all of the numerous times they have royally fucked up, then they can carry on with the finger-wagging and lectures about fiscal responsibility. But the truth is, Germans have a long history of being financial deadbeats, and they know it.

          • Peter Wde

            Think the US has probably voided that IOU. Phew, Germany is off the hook, Greece however…

        • Ireyon

          No one forced you to use germany as a battleground between the USA and the UDSSR, so shove your Airlift right off the bat.

          I checked germany is (next to Britain) the most finanially stable
          country in the EU. So yes, they can lecture people. There’s that other
          tiny problem of the USA (which is always in some war or another)
          lecturing other countries about their past.

          Have you closed
          guantanamo yet? No? Stopped walzing into other countries to wage yet
          another war? Also no? And the country the USA is presently located in is stolen wholesale by a bunch of invaders making and breaking contracts with the natives as they saw fit? And you are still fighting the tremors of slavery how many years after it was ended? Oh, and you just came around to banning a certain flag how many years after the war has ended?

          Talk about hypocrites.

          • Clungeflaps

            The only reason germany is financially stable is because they have come to the US, like the beggars they are, for aid, numerous times. And the best you can do is prevaricate by talking about Guantanamo and blathering on about US history 101, which has fuck all to do with this situation, and make you look like you are desperate to get the spotlight off of germany, because you know I’m right. Why are they acting like a bunch of Nazis again?

            I’m still correct, you are probably a butthurt german dullard that’s too butthurt to admit I’m right.

            And I agree, we never should have done the Berlin Airlift, we should have let the Soviets run a train on the whole nation, so today germany would have the economic might of Albania. Would serve them right.

          • Peter Wde

            “And I agree, we never should have done the Berlin Airlift, we should have let the Soviets run a train on the whole nation, so today germany would have the economic might of Albania. Would serve them right.”

            Wow buddy, what is your problem here, all hyperbola aside, you sound genuinely deranged.

          • Clungeflaps

            Uh, no, I don’t think so. What is truly deranged is Germany’s attempt to strangulate Greece’s economy and turn it into a 3rd world country, as a show of force to the rest of the EU’s country. What’s deranged is you thinking that that’s OK.

          • Peter Wde

            Greece strangled its own economy all by itself, including lying about its finances to join the EU. In addition, its not a 1st world economy, it’s a 3rd world economy with 1st world pretensions and should never have been admitted into the EU.

            Neither Germany, nor any other EU country, has the slightest obligation to hand over cash to this deadbeat economy, Greece has thrown itself into the economic trashcan.

            All this, of course, is a matter of public record.

          • pepón

            If it never should have been admitted, why did the EU (and Germany) do it, then? Is that also the fault of the Greek? Is it also Greece’s fault to be force fed credits to pay other credits they know they will never be able to pay back, because a default would look bad for the other Euro countries? Read, it may interest you.

          • Ireyon

            Read again what Peter Wde wrote:

            “including lying about its finances to join the EU”.

            That’s why they were admitted.

          • pepón

            And the EU didn’t know they were lying? Were they really so stupid? “Greek statistics” were well known in the EU before the Euro. All European countries lied to get into the Euro, yes France and Germany too. They all knew about it, and accepted Greece anyway. And now the say they didn’t know about it? Yeah, right.

          • Ireyon

            You have really poor reading comprehension. If all potential euro candidates couldn’t cross the bar, the bar would simply have been lowered. It’s not like those countries weren’t talking to each other before the EU was formed. Do you think some independent third party formed the EU? Sooooo….

            “All European countries lied to get into the Euro, yes France and Germany too.”

            [Citation needed]

            And don’t pretend prettying up data is somehow hard. Especially in as dense a field as assessing an entire country.

          • pepón

            Nice. Already with the ad hominem. This means you are running out of arguments.

            Well, you see, that is the problem with dogmas. You cannot just say, “Oops, sorry, the Virgin was not a virgin; we just fucked that up in the Middle Ages”. All this stuff with the deficit and so on are just modern capitalist (neoliberalist, or whatever you want to call it) dogmas. So, no, even though they didn’t reach the convergence criteria, they didn’t change the 3% level. They just made some creative accounting, just like Greece.

            If you read German, I recommend you reading EU-Konvergenzkriterien in the Wikipedia. There you can read:
            * the German Government sold part of their stock in Deutsche Telekom and Deutsche Post to one of their own banks. Theoretically only moving money around, but in reality effectively manipulating their deficit value.
            * France sold France Telekom, improving their deficit 0,6 points.
            * Italy introduced a new tax (refundable) that allowed them to reduce their deficit from 3,6% to exactly 3,0%.

            As you can see, those are nice, long term measures to reduce deficit.

            After the introduction of the Euro, Germany and France were some of the first to show the middle finger to the Stability and Growth Pact (you can read it in Stabilitäts- und Wachstumspakt in the Wikipedia).

            So get off your high horse, and stop reading the Bild Zeitung, or its equivalent, wherever you live.

          • Ireyon

            Stating that you have difficulties reading someone’s post is not an ad hominem. You needed to have Greece lying pointed out to you remember?

            “Modern capitalist dogmas”? You should call Fox News (or national equivalent), they always like to showcase “scary liberals”.

            Soooo… France selling one of their companies is creative accounting how? Seeing that you were careful not to say who they sold it to, I assume it’s a private investor, therefore entirely legitimate.

            Luckily I can read quite a bit of german, google translate will have to handle the rest. I’ll assume for a second that the article on Wikipedia you try to hide behind is the german one then? Look at the paragraph right before the one you pulled your facts from. If I’m not mistaken it describes that while some states did “creative accounting”, Greece commited outright fraud. The stability and growth pact is also mentioned in relations to that.

            And would you kindly provide some english sources, should we meet in the future? I can’t be bothered to translate everything just because you’re feeling lazy.

            Not that this is particularly relevant if you’d care to look at the state the respective countries are in. Greece is floundering the worst, germany is recovering from whatever clusterfuck Wall Street cooked up now and France’s SSM law caused more waves than any finance question did. I honestly can’t be bothered to look up Italy, you’d probably just include yet another country in your argument.

          • pepón

            You probably didn’t understand what the “Greeks statistics” I was talking about are, did you? So much for “poor reading comprehension”, and “You needed to have Greece lying pointed out to you”. Projecting much?

            I’m trying to hide behind a Wikipedia article? You can’t be bothered, but I’m the lazy one? I should provide English sources? This tells me everything I need to know about you.

            Enjoy your life. Cheers.

            >”You needed to have Greece lying pointed out to you”

            Yeah. It’s just a few posts up. Go on, take a look.

            And yes, I can’t be bothered to translate your sources for you. You claim nonsense, you supply the proof for it and seeing that both this blog and this conversation is in english…

            >This tells me everything I need to know about you.

            I echo the sentiment.

      This sure sounds familiar. History just keeps on repeating itself, it seems.

      “Gruber introduced the first Hitler Youth style uniforms featuring a brown shirt and black shorts and a unique arm band with a Nazi swastika minus the white circular background. The arm band included a white horizontal stripe to easily distinguish the young members from brownshirted storm troopers, the SA, who resented being confused with the youths.”

    Looks like AfD has recently gone through a split.

    Beim Bundesparteitag der AfD in Essen Anfang Juli hatte sich die rechtskonservative Frauke Petry gegen Lucke durchgesetzt. Der verließ daraufhin die AfD und gründete Alfa. Die AfD ist in ihren Umfragen bereits stark gesunken, die Zersplitterung dürfte die Erfolgsaussichten bei künftigen Wahlen weiter schmälern. Bundesweit liegt die AfD bei noch drei Prozent.

    At the federal party convention of the AfD in Essen at the beginning of July, right-conservative Frauke Petry prevailed against [Bernd] Lucke. The [latter] left the AfD thereafter and founded Alfa. The AfD has already sunk sharply in it surveys; the splintering may diminish the chances for success in coming elections. Across the nation, the AfD has 3% support.

  • Robert W. Pierce

    This is also changing the narrative around same-sex marriage in Germany in a very negative way. PEGIDA (Patriots Against the Islamisation of the West) is another right wing hate group helping to stoke the fire of intolerance and promoting an anti-immigrant/muslim attitude. History repeating itself, another dangerous path for Germany to be going down.

    • Across Europe there is an upwelling of immigrant hate. Jewish cemeteries are again targets of destruction in France, Immigrant workers in Greece are beaten and terrorized. Europe is again becoming a scary place with Germany at the fore front of flexing their hate muscles. I do think war is coming again in Europe, but it wont be country against country, it will be more along the lines of the old fashioned pogroms, and no one will be safe.

      • Tor

        Those of us who thought Europe was so progressive may have to think again. Then we look at our own country, and…. sigh…

        • The one thing that makes racism feel different in our country is that from the get go we were a country where everyone, except for the Native Americans, were from somewhere else. And in the 1800’s when immigrants came in large numbers they would group together for safety and comfort, and would slowly assimilate, and disperse.

          I firmly believe our issue with racism against American Natives and Blacks is guilt. Guilt for having treated them so poorly, in the marginalizing of them as a people, stealing their property, and mass genocide, and ownership. If we can get past the guilt, if we can acknowledge that we did that as a nation, as a people, then we can finally knit up this rent and carry on stronger than ever.

          But until recently, Europe has been a country where people immigrated from, not to. And they aren’t used to the new accents, the new religions expecting room to freely worship, the different food odors wafting from ethnic restaurants. To them it feels like their country is being stolen from them, and they aren’t willing to share. Some of this falls upon the shoulders of the immigrants, unlike those from the 1800’s who were eager to assimilate as quickly as possible, todays immigrants aren’t wanting to assimilate and meld into their new country.

          • Schlukitz

            ” todays immigrants aren’t wanting to assimilate and meld into their new country.”

            You hit the nail squarely on the head. In fact, many of todays immigrants want their adopted country to become exactly the same as the country they came from, including all of the horrible religious customs like Sharia law, etc., etc.

          • Clungeflaps

            That’s what happens when you completely disenfranchise immigrants from being able to live a normal productive life. Try getting a job as a north african in germany or france. They toss your CV straight into the dustbin as soon as they see a non european name. They have no future, I personally can’t blame them for being a bit resentful.

            Honestly, you should be ashamed of yourself for being an apologetic for european reactionaries.

          • Schlukitz

            To be perfectly honest, clungeflaps, pussy lips, vulva-flaps or whatever disgusting misogynistic name you choose to call yoursflf, I could care less what you think of me. My life does not revolve around your approval of what I do or say.

    “The Alternative for Germany strictly rejects any and all governmental propaganda – in schools, mass media or the public space – for certain sexual orientations or behaviors,” the motion reads. “Exempt is the promotion of the classic family.”

    You can’t pretend you’re against “propaganda” when you’re entirely supportive of propaganda you agree with.

    What is it with conservatives claiming to be against or for things they don’t want applied consistently? “Religious freedom”, “states’ rights”, “small government”… I guess just saying outright “we want special rights” doesn’t sell as well outside the Dominionist base.

    “Seventy years after Hitler came to power has Germany become a more tolerant nation caring for the human rights and dignity of all people? The shocking answer may well be

    This is the beginning of what we are seeing today. It’s worth the watch.

    Those who ignore history … tend to be Bavarian Roman Catholics.

    One never hears anything from any German gay rights group (that is if they exist). How is that they are allowing Merkel to get away with not establishing marriage equality in the country? Same for this BS. Are they even organized? They seem very weak in comparison to US and British gay rights groups.

    Everything old is new again.

  • justmeeeee

    Yeah, right. Find yourself another country to try and peddle your wacko ideas–Germany ain’t likely to be buying any time soon. Did you try South Carolina?

    You can not turn your back on them because they always want to oppress somebody and take over the world.

    Oh for fucks sake. Do these people never learn? Really?

    I like to think I’m a non-judgmental person. There’s a lot to admire about German culture, sure. Wagner made some nice music. Hegel and Kant made invaluable contributions to philosophy. But by and large, the German state in all its incarnations has brought nothing but misery to the population of this planet. Their hysterical reaction to Syriza and Greece is just the latest episode of their bizarre national tendency toward cruelty. Honestly, the unification of the German states was one of the worst ideas in the history of the human race.
    Someone should dig up Bismarck’s corpse and burn it.

    • They still use a Chancellor as the head of their government, like that’s ever ended well.

      Objecting to a state (that’s sucking up money due to years of mismangement) dragging down the rest of the EU is not a “hysterical reaction”.

      Greece is the sole author of its problems and current condition, its politicians and citizens live in an economic fantasy world and are a living example of “the problem with socialism is it always runs out of other people’s money” (Margaret Thatcher).

      Having propelled its own economy right over the cliff and into the Aegean Sea it now wants others to pay for its ruinous profligacy…no thanks and pay your own way.

  • I bet it goes great with all those other Russian ideas that they’ve implemented in the past: forced-breeding, separating the state, a big fucking wall, secret police…

    DAMN, i thought Western Europe was better than that

    Tea party, german style.

    This group, like Hungary’s Jobbik, and France’s FN (Le Pen), is rumored to be funded by Russia. So this isn’t a surprise. Its just the German branch of Putin, Inc. It also has had its 15 minutes of fame.

    They must be Republicans, or however it is pronounced in German! :>)

    • Peter Wde

      Why must they be Republicans, how does that follow?

      • GayEGO

        Because here in the U.S.A. most of the anti-gays are Republicans who have been brainwashed by their religions. However, I was being sarcastic! :>)

        • Peter Wde

          Applies to quite a few Democrats as well, until they “evolved” I guess…

  • Brian in Valdosta


    Damn, Germany. Get it together.
