Hardly any other demonstrator has made such a massive impact on the events of Austria in the past three years through his presence as a convicted ex-Nazi who was known and convicted in Austria as a genocide denier. Whether in Vienna or Steyr: his appearances at the rallies were recorded, used by the media and elicited reactions desired by the mainstream. The corona demo may have been stigmatized as a “neo-Nazi casserole”, with the number of participants declining as Mr. and Mrs. average demonstrators were afraid of Nazi framing.
A guest article by Andrea Drescher
Of course, everyone has the right to participate in demonstrations. that’s out of the question. Even those who have been convicted and have served their sentence should not be harassed any longer. As long as these people are not guilty of anything, it should be a natural thing. However, one has to ask himself whether these people were or are really interested in the demonstrations, or whether other reasons for their presence play a role.
If you know that you are personally causing harm to an event that is important to you, you naturally stay away from the event to avoid this damage. One protester makes no difference to the whole protest march. However, a convicted ex-Nazi more or less makes a significant difference – at least in terms of how the media can and has been able to exploit it.
One can assume that the effect of such presence at events is well known by now. So you have to ask yourself why do such performances keep coming up? Is it purely a game of arrogance or are there structures behind it that are interested in setting up a “Nazi corner” to justify the resistance of critics of the measures and supporters of neutrality?
Cui bono – who benefits from it?
This question should not only be allowed, but it should also be answered immediately. Because on August 19, another public appearance took place from this corner. An event near Graz, in which several well-known system critics – including well-known doctors critical of the measures – spoke on stage, moderated by a gentleman who was introduced only by his first name happened from It came as a surprise to many when at the end of the evening it was announced who the matter was about.
The event was filmed and “quite surprisingly” the first public recording was released yesterday, 27 August, by Antifa group “AFA Stare”.
In this self-edited film, the Hitler Youth is first presented, then the neo-Nazi past of the moderator is documented with old video clips, who was eventually sentenced to several years in prison for his political activities .
And then his current “friends” are introduced, i.e. placed in the context of his earlier actions.
Gradually in the video, excerpts from well-known speakers appear on stage: among others, Dr. Maria Hubber-Mogg, Dr. Bernhard Strehl or Konstantin Haslauer – to name just a few – always with the moderator in the background. It is highly doubtful whether each speaker was aware of who was responsible for the introduction. On the contrary, some visitors feel cheated and cheated.
“We didn’t know who was moderating”
Dr. Habbar Mogg said about, After the incident, I could hook up to the lie detector and ask: Doctor, do you know who operated that? And I would have said no. And the detector would have confirmed that I was telling the truth. I said that I would like to come to the event because I thought Günter Koller himself would be conducting it. Since more people came than expected, he gave up his restraint.
If I had known beforehand, I would not have attended this program because I do not want to have anything to do with this person. It was clearly a trap into which we were being ensnared. I can’t say who is really behind this.
I have never been politically affiliated and have successfully stayed away from any party politics. Unfortunately, I have to admit that such coincidences cannot happen. To a certain activist camp, I am considered too peaceful and too diplomatic. This is possibly a thorn in the side for some people.
It “coincidentally” discredits both our program against the WHO and my candidacy for the European Union elections on 1 October.
Dr. Bernhard Strehl, who operated on him, was also not informed about this:
“It was only when Monica Donner mentioned the name that I became aware of this gentleman’s presence. It was more than a surprise to me. What impressed me: The video shot with this hero right next to each speaker Was done. When I saw that I immediately felt that this could not be a coincidence. Everyone is now groomed accordingly by the moderator.
The organizer told me that he didn’t know who the presenter was. He might have introduced himself. I do not know who brought these gentlemen to the programme. It is completely unclear to me who arranged what and how. Has everyone really become that stupid? Video content delivered directly to the right people – this can’t be a coincidence.
It was staged in an incredible way. I don’t know who did this, who helped for this. If I knew who was moderating, I would never have gone there. The mace is now in the hands of our opponents.
When the organizer of the event, Günter Koller, found out who the moderator was, he became extremely uncomfortable:
“It was the next day when several participants called me and asked why he was on stage. I was all clouded over. After that I googled it and was shocked to see what I saw there. I didn’t even know his name. He introduced himself by his first name and said he’s always been in the gay world. And then he offered himself as a professional presenter. Basically I would have , But I was grateful that someone took it from me. I had a lot on my mind. We were expecting 150 participants and there were 800 to 900 people. So I gladly accepted the offer.
I certainly have nothing to do with the right wing or the far right, even though we critics of the measure are called so. I don’t allow a convict on the stage to deny genocide. I don’t know why he was there. He suddenly stood next to me and that was all. It’s really too bad that something like this happened.”
Konstantin Haslauer takes it all in stride.
I was invited, but didn’t even know for sure that I was the speaker there. I knew the gentleman by name only, I had never seen any photos nor was I aware of any content shared by him. I didn’t even know who was moderating me. It’s exciting to me that I’m being staged in the media like this and that framing is being attempted again. Mr. Kusel has served his sentence and now he should and will be rehabilitated in the society. So he can participate in any program and help in organizing. Maybe I’ll be labeled a neo-Nazi, but that’s not true at all. I am completely opposite.
If someone commits a criminal act, you have to punish him. I am neither a policeman nor a judge, so it is not my right to evaluate him as a person!
I wish we would finally stop the exclusion, division, left or right division or prejudice of people without knowing them personally!
Pastor Preece, one of the Catholic priests who took Christianity seriously even during the Corona period and campaigned for non-vaccination, is also affected:
“I didn’t know the presenter, I didn’t even know who he was. We were apparently connected, even the organizer was not aware of it. If I had known this earlier I would have I would have canceled it. Because there are clear lines that I will not cross. In a lecture I once quoted Vera Sharava, who told that it all started with defamation. I do not consider myself a victim of such defamation Want to make, so I will never participate in such an event. I don’t know where it came from – still can’t figure it out.
Since there was an unexpected number of people, I found the program too loud and stayed in the background. When I was moderated, I cited an arbitration that aims to encourage free thought and action so that people can exercise their fundamental rights. Then I went home quite early and the next day through a friend I got to know who was on stage. I hope it is not used against me now, but if it is, it was a mistake made out of ignorance.”
a fact that is now being exploited
These are the voices of several hundred participants, of whom, according to one visitor, hardly anyone knew who was on stage. She herself recognized the moderator during the evening and was very surprised to see him in this role. The Visitor contacted TKP and reported shortly after the incident, as he assumed the video would be used at an opportune time to discredit the speakers.
The Antifa video, which now presents all speakers as if they were personal friends of the moderator, confirms their notion. This publication was not really a surprise for us in the editorial office, rather it was a question of timing.
Whether it is the protection of the constitution or radical activists – it “smells” of a trap that was laid for various people who were critical of the measures.
So finally the question again: Qui bono? Who benefits from this show off?
