Germany's Federal Justice Minister: Right-wing extremism is the greatest threat to Germany

BERLIN. Federal Justice Minister Christine Lambrecht (SPD), after the resolution of a multi-billion euro package of measures against right-wing extremism, called for the issue to be made a top-level matter at the highest government level. "Right-wing extremism is the greatest threat to our open and diverse society, that has meanwhile become clear to everyone," Lambrecht told the Passauer Neue Presse on Thursday.

The AfD is partly to blame for the fact that the phenomenon has increased in Germany. The SPD politician criticized many of the statements made by party politicians "clearly racist" and "anti-democratic".

The package of measures will benefit left-wing extremist structures
The federal government agreed on Wednesday on a package of measures to “fight against the law” amounting to one billion euros. It lists 90 points that are intended to counter right-wing extremism and racism. For example, the government plans to create its own criminal offenses for anti-Semitic or racist abuse. In addition, some left-wing organizations, such as the Amadeu Antonio Foundation, are now receiving ongoing financial support.

The MEP Maximilian Krah (AfD) complained that the money from the package of measures was used to "build left-wing radical and extreme structures". The examples of Hamburg and Leipzig show that they attack the state order, he complained on Twitter.
