Head of Major German Paper Denounces ‘Left-Wing Fascism’ at G20 Summit


Recommended Posts


The head of Germany’s Die Welt newspaper Ulf Poschardt has denounced the violence caused by left-wing extremists calling the rioting, “the new fascist violence of the left”.

Mr. Poschardt, who serves as the editor in chief of Die Welt, slammed the so-called “black-block” left-extremists in a new column likening them to the Blackshirts who committed acts of political violence under Fascist dictator Benito Mussolini in the 1920s.

“Their black costume reveals that their aesthetic is inspired by Mussolini’s black shirts. They act like fascists. They stir up fear and uncertainty. The Black Block has been turning Hamburg into a civil war landscape since Thursday evening,” he wrote.

“In the run-up to the G-20 summit, there are always two kinds of protest: the one idealistic peaceful but over and over again – the hate-filled dream of a broken dystopia, as in the Batman movie ‘The Dark Knight Rises’,” he added.

Calling the members of the black-block, many of which are neither from Hamburg nor even Germany, “adventure tourists” Poschardt paints the average left-extremist as young men in “late puberty”  who have, “no more to offer politically than an archaic accumulation of rage and a regime of fear”.


The fashionable fascists.
