HERE WE GO: Germany Cracking Down on Conspiracy Theorists – Coming to a Neighborhood Near You

Nationwide German raids over far-right social media plot

German officials raided apartments nationwide Thursday over an alleged plot by a far-right group to spread conspiracy theories and “destabilise” the state through social media, prosecutors said.

Computers, smartphones and data sticks were seized in the searches at 20 apartments in eight states, the prosecutor’s office in Munich said in a statement.

The investigation is centred on a plot by alleged members of the far-right “Reichsbuerger” movement — the same group behind a plan last year to overthrow the state and install a self-styled prince as Germany’s new leader.

The latest plot centred on several channels on the messaging service Telegram, the prosecutors said.

From early 2021, the channels were used to spread conspiracy theories, and the operator of the channels organised “mass contacting” of authorities by phone and email, they said.

This was “in order to force them to make decisions in favour of the members of the association,” the statement said.
