Right-wing extremists are actively infiltrating green groups in Germany

Extremist right-wing groups have apparently started to infiltrate green groups in Germany to spread their hateful ideology and gaining support among German farmers who are frustrated with new regulations on the use of fertilisers and the protection of insects.

The Guardian reports that farmers associations and environmental groups in Germany are now warning that far-right groups are exploiting the country's growing green movement and the increasing popularity of organic lifestyles, as well as rural nostalgia and farmers’ anger at globalisation. The far-right are doing this by organizing events that use Nazi-imagery and publishing and distributing propaganda in a new glossy magazine "for natural protection."

[…] one of its most prominent champions on social media is Björn Höcke, the Thuringian leader of far-right party Alternative für Deutschland’s aggressively nationalist wing – a German court last year ruled he could legally be called a fascist.

The magazine is edited by a member of the Identitarian movement, a group of nationalist activists that Germany’s domestic intelligence agency last year declared an extremist entity...

These fascists are calling for "a conservative-ecological turn" saying that ecology is the "crown jewels" of the right and that it has been "robbed" by left-wing green movements since the 1970s. They shun renewable energy like windfarms and push fascist and Malthusian theories on overpopulation claiming that "the world’s population has to be stabilised at a lower level" or "face irreversible ecological collapse." They are also – like most of the far-right – climate deniers as they are arguing for moving away from climate protection and instead embrace "homeland protection."
