THE LEFT-WING SOCIAL DEMOCRAT FOREIGN MINISTER in Germany, Heiko Maas, joins with left-wingers everywhere in criticising the behavior of law enforcement in the United States. Although the FRG (Federal Republic) is the least democratic state in Europe, with its notorious “Paragraph 130” that excludes anything related in any way to the National Socialist regime of 1933-45 from the general freedoms of speech and association guaranteed by German Basic law, Maas expressed concern for American democracy on Tuesday.

Since there is no press freedom in Germany, due to the above mentioned Paragraph 130, of which Maas fully approves, he is simply making a show of support for the mass protests and his hopes that a Biden administration will succeed the Trump administration, ushering in a more “progressive” American leadershop that will put us back into the Paris Climate Accord, the Iran Nuclear deal and the WHO, which Donald Trump removed the US from.
At a news conference, Maas called the violent US demonstrations of burning and looting over the past 5-6 nights, “peaceful protests” and said that he “can only express the hope that the peaceful protests don't turn violent, and even more the hope that they will have an impact." By impact, he means to bring about better race relations, except that what he calls “better” is better not asked. He tweeted the same message on Tuesday.

“Democratic states under the rule of law have to meet the highest standards when it comes to protecting freedom of press," Maas added. "Any violence that occurs in this context not only has to be criticized — above all it has to be properly followed up and investigated so that journalists are protected when they are doing their work."

The trouble with that is, todays so-called journalists are actually propagandists with a very distinct left-wing bias to their reporting, and news outlets like Deutsche Welle or CNN are most definitely putting out propaganda, not neutral straight reporting. Everything is tinged with the liberal bias, and much is painted boldly with favoring one party, politician, or interpretation of events outright.
Maas told DW, "We remain firmly committed: Journalists must be able to carry out their task, which is independent coverage of events, without endangering their safety." I question their independent coverage, which is my right to do, and would remind the foreign minister to look to his own 'democracy' before trying to force others to adolpt his own sold-out, 'one world' views.
Meddler Maas said his office will contact US officials about the incident involving the DW reporter Stefan Simons, but nothing will come of it because the police were not in the wrong in ordering Simons to move out of the location he was in. It is their city, especially when they're engaged in anti-riot enforcement.
