Alarm as German anti-maskers co-opt Nazi resister Sophie Scholl

Source: AFP

But the legacy of the young woman sentenced to a brutal death for distributing anti-Nazi pamphlets has recently been co-opted by Germany's anti-lockdown movement, to the dismay of historians and the Jewish community.

At a demonstration in April, one woman had a placard featuring a picture of Sophie Scholl draped on string around her shoulders.

"The real damage is done by those millions who want to 'survive.' The honest men who just want to be left in peace," it read -- words famously pronounced by the resistance campaigner.

Even one of her nephews, Julian Aicher, has prominently spoken at corona sceptic demonstrations, including on a stage decorated with white roses -- evoking the name of Scholl's resistance group.

2. They leave no stone unturned to co-opt and neuter actual historic events

in their craven efforts to re-manufacture an era of their purported "supremacy". Their whole justification has been absurd.

To quote MLK -

"Nothing in all the world is more dangerous than sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity."


and the conscientiously stupid are playing to the ignorance of the poorly educated and uneducated.
