The German government is threatening to ban the Alternative for Germany (AfD) for getting too popular in the polls.
From The Telegraph:
Germany considers ban on far-Right AfD
His speech at the castle where the German post-war constitution was created has widely been seen as support for a ban after Thomas Haldenwang, the domestic spy chief, warned about growing Right-wing extremist influence in the party.Last year, a German court ruled that German intelligence can put the AfD under surveillance "on suspicion of being a threat to democracy" -- despite post-Nazi era laws put in place to forbid such domestic spying.
The Telegraph continues:
Mr Haldenwang said: "We see a considerable number of protagonists in this party that spread hate against all types of minorities here in Germany."The Greek government in May similarly banned the "far-right" Golden Dawn party to defend "democracy" and the French government just last week banned the "far-right" Catholic Civitas party for "anti-Semitism."
