There’s a Nazi army embedded in the German armed forces. Five hundred professional soldiers who swore allegiance to the Bundesrepublik but remain loyal only to the ideals of the Third Reich are working every day in German military bases or in NATO missions in Afghanistan and Africa. And they are actively recruiting new people — including 23 new soldiers since the start of the year.
“We just need to get a vaccine for yellow fever, then we can go to Mali to shoot n****rs in the head,” is one of the most significant declarations by one of the soldiers, which was caught on a hidden microphone planted by German military intelligence and presented to the Bundestag thanks to a parliamentary investigation promoted by the Linke.
This is the first political case since Defense Minister Ursula Von der Leyen (CDU) was confirmed in the role after Angela Merkel’s re-election. And it’s also a recurrence of evidence that the promise to oust Nazi soldiers has never really happened — and that Berlin cannot solve even after hearing recordings of 431 other facts officially admitted by the government.
