Authorities in Thuringia, Germany have discovered an antifa-linked cachet of chemicals, high-explosives, and a mobile bomb factory believed to be intended for domestic terrorism, according to local media.
Welt Am Sonntagw outlined the haul which authorities suspect to be tied to hard left extremists. The discovery is being swept under the rug by larger media sources.
According to Breitbart, Thuringia’s Minister-President and a member of Die Linke (The Left Party), Bodo Ramelow, honored one of the two suspects with a “democracy award” for their vigilance in fighting ‘Neo-Nazis’, according to WAS.
At last years G20 summit, alt-left extremists committed over 2,000 crimes, mostly vandalism and violence, in Germany according to police.
Mike Mohring is the chairman of Angela Merkel’s more conservative Christian Democratic Union (CDU) party in Thuringia. He is also a CDU leader in the region’s parliament. He stated “The findings available so far suggest that the spokesman of an alliance honored by the Ramelow government prepared explosives attacks.”
He went on to assure “The days-long, almost booming silence of the entire state government is more than strange.”
“We have a lot to do with extreme right-wing violence in Thuringia, but the escalation of left-wing violence at the G20 summit in Hamburg has shown that there is also a dangerous potential on this side of the spectrum,” Thuringian Minister of the Interior Georg Maier said.
It is being reported the Left Party parliamentarian Katharina König-Preuss had a personal relationship with one of the suspects. Her Twitter account proudly showcases ‘anti-fascist’ rhetoric aimed at conservatives, even displaying a “#Antifa” in her bio. The case is now dragging her reputation into a sinkhole.
One of the accused is a 31 year old wheelchair bound leftist who explained to WAS “plot allegations are total humbug, but that’s all I’m going to say.”
The police raid uncovered large quantities of butyric acid in the suspect’s home. WAS described it as “a malodorous chemical often used in attacks on political opponents” in Europe.
The accused claims the acidic materials used in bomb making were for his mother, and intended as “pesticides against voles and moles”.
The explosive materials weighed about 100 kilos or 220.46 U.S. pounds.
