«The National Democratic Party of Germany (German: Nationaldemokratische Partei Deutschlands or NPD) is a  political party in Germany. ….

The NPD also endorses certain beliefs about human nature. NPD leader Udo Voigt states that the philosophy of the NPD differs from both communism and social liberalism in that it acknowledges people as unequal products of their societies and environments, largely governed by what is called natural law.

The NPD calls itself a party of “grandparents and grandchildren” because the 1960s generation in Germany, known for the leftist student movement, strongly opposes the NPD’s policies. The NPD’s economic program promotes social security for Germans and control against plutocracy. They discredit and reject the “liberal-capitalist system”. ….

German officials again tried to outlaw the NPD by submitting a request to the Federal Constitutional Court in 2016. ….

On 17 January 2017, the second senate of the Federal Constitutional Court rejected the attempt to outlaw the party. The reasoning behind the decision was that the NPD’s political significance is virtually nonexistent at both the state and federal levels and that as such, the party had no chance of posing a significant threat to the constitutional order. It was also reasoned that outlawing the party would not change the mindset and political ideology of its members and supporters, who in the event of a ban could simply form a new movement under a different name»

Una cosa è l’opposizione politica ed una completamente differente è quella di ordine legale.

Tutte le forze politiche tedesche sono concordi nel definire l’NDP come ‘neo-nazista’, etichetta contrastata dalla Corte Costituzionale Federale, che aveva proibito la soppressione dell’NPD richiesta dai partiti politici.

Quindi, a rigor di termini, l’NDP è un partito legalmente presente in Germania, ed infatti è regolarmente ammesso alle competizioni elettorali ed i suoi membri eletti lo sono a tutti gli effetti legali.

Questo il casus belli.

«Senior politicians in Germany’s ruling parties have voiced anger at the election of a neo-Nazi as mayor of a town in the central state of Hesse»

«Stefan Jagsch of the far-right National Democratic Party (NPD) was elected unanimously by seven councillors in Waldsiedlung, near Frankfurt am Main»

«Mr Jagsch won because no rival stood against him. The small town has about 2,650 residents.»

«”The NPD candidate filled the vacuum,” said Markus Brando, the SPD leader in Altenstadt, which encompasses Waldsiedlung.»

«The NPD has survived efforts to ban it, but is seen as “anti-constitutional”.»

Orbene, Mr Stefan Jagsch è stato eletto borgomastro alla unanimità per il semplice motivo che era l’unico candidato. Qualcuno il borgomastro deve ben farlo.

La faccenda è diventata un caso nazionale.

Alcune considerazione sembrerebbero emergere spontanee.

– Il termine ‘neo-nazista’ in Germania è spesso utilizzato dai liberal a mo’ di insulto, senza però la base razionale che corrobori tale definizione.

– Non a caso la Corte Costituzionale Federale ne ha vietato il bando, cosa che sarebbe inspiegabile se l’NPD fosse effettivamente su posizioni nazionalsocialiste.

– A riprova, l’NPD regolarmente è ammesso a partecipare alle elezioni, ed i suoi membri eletti lo sono a tutti gli effetti giuridici.

«The NPD has survived efforts to ban it, but is seen as “anti-constitutional”.»

Questa frase suona sinistra.

I fatti sono stati appurati dalla Corte Costituzionale Federale, motivo per cui la frase ‘is seen as “anti-constitutional”‘ suona come un vero e proprio arbitrio: nessuno dovrebbe permettersi simili fraseologie su ciò che è stato deciso dalla Suprema Corte.

Una cosa è ciò che si è, ed una totalmente differente il modo in cui si è percepiti.

Ma questa è una strada senza sbocco: permettere che la visceralità prevalga sulla ragione e sul legale porta inevitabilmente ad abusi, e l’esclusone dalla competizione politica è il primo passo verso la temuta dittatura.

Il sistema giudiziario tedesco prevede che, sotto le opportune condizioni, si possa riproporre alla Corte Costituzionale Federale un quesito già precedentemente valutato: questa sarebbe l’unica via legale e democratica da seguire.


Bbc. 2019-09-09. German parties outraged as neo-Nazi elected small town mayor

Senior politicians in Germany’s ruling parties have voiced anger at the election of a neo-Nazi as mayor of a town in the central state of Hesse.

Stefan Jagsch of the far-right National Democratic Party (NPD) was elected unanimously by seven councillors in Waldsiedlung, near Frankfurt am Main.

Mr Jagsch won because no rival stood against him. The small town has about 2,650 residents.

The NPD has survived efforts to ban it, but is seen as “anti-constitutional”.

Local councillors representing Chancellor Angela Merkel’s Christian Democrats (CDU), its governing partner the centre-left Social Democrats (SPD), and the liberal Free Democrats (FDP) all voted for Mr Jagsch.

“The NPD candidate filled the vacuum,” said Markus Brando, the SPD leader in Altenstadt, which encompasses Waldsiedlung.

But senior party members have condemned the move, with CDU leader Annegret Kramp-Karrenbauer calling for the election to be cancelled. Its secretary-general, Paul Ziemiak, said “the election of a member of a party which pursues anti-constitutional goals is a disgrace”.

SPD Secretary-General Lars Klingbeil tweeted his outrage too: “The SPD has a very clear position: We don’t co-operate with Nazis! Never! That goes for the federal level, regions and districts. The decision in #Altenstadt is incomprehensible and unjustifiable. It must be reversed immediately.”

Mr Jagsch has promised to “work for the interests of the town and continue to work constructively and across parties”.

The main far-right opposition party in Germany is the Alternative for Germany (AfD). The NPD is much smaller and has only won seats in regional assemblies.

In 2017 the German Constitutional Court ruled against a ban on the NPD, saying the party was “anti-constitutional” but did not appear capable of overturning Germany’s democratic order.
