I Don't Speak German

Dec 14, 2022

Jack welcomes special guest Annika Brockschmidt to the show.  Annika specialises in covering the far-right and tells Jack all about the recent German government swoop on those in the Reichsbürger movement who were planning 'Day X', a storming of the Bundestag and a takeover of the state.  We go over the context of the far-right in Germany, the composition and ideology of the Reichsbürgers, the coup plans, the structure of the conspiracy, the reaction in Germany, the connections with QAnon and the Sovereign Citizens, the context of 'Nuremberg 2.0' and the various strands of paranoid pandemic politics, etc.  A really fascinating episode, thanks to Annika's deep knowledge.
