German Federal Minister of the Interior Horst Seehofer said right-wing extremism, racism and anti-Semitism are the «biggest threat to security in Germany,» at a conference during which he presented the 2019 German constitutional protection report, in Berlin on Thursday.
«This [threat] has not ended, on the contrary, the number of incidents involving people from the right-wing extremism and electable platforms has continued to increase,» explained Seehofer.
At the presser, the President of the federal office for the protection of the Constitution, Thomas Haldenwang, reiterated Seehofer's comments, as he pointed the dangers of other institutions and organisations using right-wing extremism narratives.
«I am speaking about right-wing extremism, the political implementation, or the bloodbath in a synagogue. I am speaking about the new right, the certain people that want to legitimise their extreme views in an electorate platform. I am also speaking about left-wing extremists who kicked a police officer on the ground to his death almost,» added Haldenwang.
