Ex-Stasi Agent Hired to Censor ‘Xenophobic’ Facebook Posts


Anetta Kahane

According to Vice Chancellor Sigmar approximately 1 million migrants will arrive in Germany this year alone and Chancellor Merkel says there is no limit to how many they will take in.  Politically incorrect Germans who voice their skepticism can look forward to censorship – at least on Facebook. [4]  The problem here is that the definition of ‘hate speech’ in Europe, not a continent with much attachment to free speech, can move far beyond threats and incitements to violence.  [8] The German government and Facebook are working with an organization led by an ex-Stasi agent to oversee a new program that will identify “xenophobic” posts made on the social networking website. The German Minister of Justice Heiko Maas met with Facebook this week to form a special task force that will work to remove comments from the website that “call for hatred” against migrants.  [1]  Those caught posting material that the government disagrees with are likely to face criminal prosecution and  punished with fines and jail sentences.  [1] [2] Determined to see his fellow Germans embrace their new multicultural homeland, Justice Minister Heiko Maas has decided to crack down on those citizens who criticise the influx, especially those who take to their own private Facebook accounts to do so. Maas has recruited the help of an organisation – Network Against Nazis (Netz Gegen Nazis, or NAN) – to aid him in his crackdown. [2]  NAN was founded by, and according to it’s website works in partnership with, the Amaedu Antonio Foundation, run by Anetta Kahane. Although Kahane now describes herself as an “anti-racist,” she was intimately involved in another dark period of German history, working as a Stasi informant under the codename “Victoria” from 1974-1982.  [1] The Stasi, which liaised with the Soviet KGB, was the official secret police of the former Communist government of East Germany. Its role was to spy on the population and to use its vast network of informants to hunt down political dissidents. Numerous Stasi members were prosecuted for their crimes after the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989. [1] Kahane attracted some attention last year after after an interview with RT, having proclaimed that the European countries have to open their borders and to adapt fully to the immigrants from the Third World. “Immigration is the future. We really need to change the immigration policy in Europe. This is very important, you have to adapt the education system and adapting countries’ self-understanding. They are no longer just white or just Swedes, or only Portuguese or German. They are multicultural places in the world,” she said. [3]

merkel-piece-of-shitRecently, Chancellor Angela Merkel vowed to tackle “racist” comments made on social media sites, describing them as “sedition” and demanding that Facebook take action. [12]  As by some sort of “coincidence,” during a recent United Nations Meeting, Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg was caught live on an open mic making a deal with German Chancellor, Angela Merkel.  [6] What happened next will probably go down in the history books as an important moment in the genesis of modern fascism. The German Justice Minister Heiko Maas wrote to Richard Allen, Facebook’s public policy director, who is based in Dublin, to complain that not enough was being done to root out “xenophobic” comments on the social media site, Deutsche Welle reported.  The implementation of community standards “can apparently not be relied on,” Maas said, “even though many posts contain comments that constitute the criminal offense of incitement to hatred.” He reminded Facebook of its legal obligation to delete posts which fall foul of the law. [2]  Haas insisted that he did not oppose free speech, but went on to add: “The Internet, however, is not a legal vacuum in which racist incitement and criminal utterances can be spread in an uncontrolled manner. In the case of internet users who propagate xenophobia and offensive racism, we must not mistakenly apply tolerance.” [2] Facebook sent a delegation to meet with Haas. According to Bild, the meeting was a success, with Haas and Facebook declaring that they intend to create a joint task-force to combat “hate messages” on the internet. “The aim is to improve complaint management and to better identify criminal comments,” Haas said. [13] Facebook declared that it had already been planning such a taskforce before the meeting, revealing that it plans to involve non-profit organisations in the project. Specifically, it named the left wing organisation NAN as a collaborator. NAN has already made clear that it supports police patrol of the internet.  A report in Bild also confirms that ‘Network Against Nazis’, led by Kahane, will be involved in monitoring Facebook for “racist” and “xenophobic” comments, as well as “refugee-baiting” remarks.  [13] Those found guilty will be hit with fines of around €5000 euros or 120 days in prison.  [1] In one blog post it lists a number of prosecutions for comments made on social media for which people have been fined and prosecuted, including one case in which a man was fined €3,900 for merely ‘liking’ a racist post. [2] [13]

The fact that an ex-Stasi informant will be tasked with monitoring and censoring Facebook has been criticized by the site PI NEWS. “25 years after the German reunification, former DDR citizens, along with their West German brothers and sisters, are to be monitored by former Stasi cadres.”  [11] According to Simon Wiesenthal who spent half a century hunting Nazi criminals the Stasi was much, much worse than the Gestapo. “The Gestapo had 40,000 officials watching a country of 80 million, while the Stasi employed 102,000 to control 17 million.” [7] And as John Koehler, author of Stasi – The Untold Story of the East German Secret Police, points out: “the Stasi spent four decades perfecting it’s machinery of oppression, espionage, international terrorism and subversion whilst the Gestapo lasted only twelve years.” [7] While European governments roll out the red carpet to potentially millions of future migrants, authorities are cracking down on dissent. Last week, an anti-migrant demonstration set to be held in Warsaw was banned on the grounds that it was “driven by out-of-place hatred.” [1] So, shame on the German government for censoring free speech, and shame on Facebook for allowing it! [3]  Anti-migrant sentiment is building across Europe, partly as a result of the mainstream media’s failure to report on the negative impact that the influx of unassimilated foreigners will bring, as is documented in the video below.
