When police killed George Floyd, riots erupted in many cities of the US and Western Europe. Black people came out under the slogan “Black Lives Matter”. However, white activists from left-wing radical groups, such as Antifa, quickly took to the street. Who was among those inspiring them from abroad?
Angela Merkel was, not personally, but rather the regime that brought her to power 15 years ago. This is confirmed by the Bundestag deputy of the opposition party, Alternative for Germany, Petr Bystron, in his statement, in which he says: The budget of Angela Merkel’s office for 2020 is 3.19 billion euros. Almost half of this amount (1.82 billion euros) is allocated to the needs of the Department of Culture and the Media.
Huge amounts from the “propaganda budget of the German Chancellor” are allocated to finance various “activists”. In 2019, the Merkel government allocated 9 million euros to finance these organisations. Considering that Antifa is positioning itself as a “global leftist international” and has activists in all Western countries, it is obvious that these human and material resources could be used for protests in the USA, which, by the way, take place exactly under the same slogans (only here the “main fascists” are not AfD, but Trump, activists of the Republican Party and police).
Now, you understand why the US Attorney General’s office spoke about the “foreign roots of the riots” and who specifically could be meant here.
