Nationalism is not the same as patriotism - and where is the alleged German xenophobia (hatred of foreigners) in the World Cup celebrations? I don't see it. Just more Jewish scaremongering over even the slightest sign of German patriotism, even in such a diluted form, and only once every 2 years...

Even as the Jewish woman says, 1950s Germany had many NS nostalgics and now there are almost none so what are they complaining about?
Quote:
Nationalism runs rampant in World Cup Germany

While many members of the Jewish community support the national team, others fear the accompanying xenophobia brought on by football fever

When child Holocaust survivor, Huguette Hermann, 86, watched Germany defeat Brazil 7-1 last week, she was proud of her countrys team. She was particularly impressed with their humility after winning

They were so fair, they didnt exult or make a big show. I liked that. I think this is something new. I dont think that would have been like that in the 50s or even in the 60s, says Hermann.

Hermann has no problem with all the flags or expressions of German pride currently sweeping the country.

I think its normal. Every country would be proud if their team had got so far. If the British team got so far, the British would do just the same, says Hermann.

Hermann fled the Nazis in her native Belgium, and survived World War II in England. In 1950, she moved with her then husband to West Germany where she encountered an atmosphere redolent of Nazism, she recalls.

[West] Germany in the 50s was awful, she says, remembering Germans waxing nostalgic for the Nazi period and a latent animosity in the air. In the 50s she encountered a country without smiles and a cruel bureaucracy. Today, theyve gone to the other extreme, she observes.

Hermann lives on the bustling Chauseestrasse neighborhood of Berlin, where the atmosphere is light and festive. People of all races and nationalities walk the streets, which ahead of the World Cup finals are heavily adorned with German flags and fans wearing funny costumes supporting Germany.

Many of the teams fans are not even German. In Berlins touristy Hackescher Markt, young people with faces painted red, yellow, and black wear artificial flower leis in the same colors. They drink beer in pubs festooned with German flags. Some speak Swedish; others in American accented English, and the festive atmosphere is akin to Munichs Oktoberfest. However, whereas Munich has its lederhosen, in Berlin during the World Cup is dominated by the German flag.

One German who will not be wearing any flags today is Stefan Kunath, 25. Kunath is an activist in Germanys left of center Die Linke party. In an online correspondence he writes, Many Germans use the World Cup as [an] outlet to show their suppressed nationalistic feelings. This why soccer is not solely about soccer, but the regaining of German pride after Auschwitz

Only during the World Cup usually sanctioned nationalistic attitudes become mainstream and widely accepted. Recent studies have shown that xenophobia and nationalism are increasing during World Cups in Germany. This is why I am sure that you cant get one thing (a happy football festival) without the other (xenophobia, nationalism), he writes.

Will Kunath watch the game?

I think I will watch the game and I hope to see them losing 7:1 for Argentina, writes Kunath.

Those be slim odds certainly arent the hope of Hermanns grandson, Doron Rubin, 32. Rubin was born and raised in the Stuttgart area, and today is the chairman of Berlins fast growing Orthodox community, Adass Jisroel.

The question if I feel like I am supporting my national team is a bit tricky, there is a long answer somewhere, but I guess I support them like a Jew in Switzerland is supporting Switzerland, says Rubin.

Other members of the Jewish community find it difficult to support the national team. Ioulia Isserlis, 24, like many of todays younger Jews in Germany, immigrated as a child from the Former Soviet Union. She grew up in Dresden, which unlike multicultural Berlin, is known as a less tolerant and conservative city, with annual neo-Nazi marches.

Today, Isserlis is happy to live in Berlin.

In Dresden, they made sure that I never felt at home. In Berlin I feel at home because of the international community, says Isserlis.

Her experiences with German anti-Semitism and xenophobia weigh on Isserliss relationship to her national team.

As a Jew, you cannot fully support them, she says.

Yet, Isserlis is also an avid soccer fan.

Germany is one of the best teams nowadays, of course if they win, they deserve it. If they win, I wont have negative feelings.

And which team would Isserlis support, if not Germany?

If I were to choose a country to support, it would be Israel. But unfortunately Israeli soccer is not there yet, says Isserlis.

Opinion divided on the World Cup victory at PI. A lot of commentators celebrating and congratulating the German (or should I say "German" with all the non-whites and half-Poles on it), while others critical:

Quote:
#16 BRDDR-Brot-und-Spiel-Rummel. Obendrein Merkel und Gauck (nicht mein Prsident) dort. Also abstoend und uninteressant in einem.

Deutschland wurde das letzte Mal 1974 Weltmeister. Damals waren Jubel und Patriotismus noch echt. Danach gings bergab. Heutzutage nur ein weiteres “Event” fr den vaterlandslosen Amsierpbel.
Quote:
BRDDR "Bread and circuses" hype. On top of that Merkel and Gauck (not my president) there. So disgusting and uninteresting all in one. Germany was in 1974 the world champion. Back then, cheers and patriotism were still real. Then we went downhill. Today, just another "event" for the fatherlandless amused masses.
Quote:
# 25 Juhuuu! Und nicht vergessen: morgen muss die Deutschlandfahne wieder weg! Eine Deutschlandfahne ausserhalb der WM zu zeigen kann als Hassverbrechen geahndet werden! Wir drfen schlielich nicht die Plusdeutschen provozieren!
Quote:
And do not forget: tomorrow the Germany flag must be out away! A Germany flag displayed outside the World Cup is punishable as a hate crime! We must not provoke the Plus-Germans!
Quote:
# 26 Das politkorrekte System bekommt hierdurch weiter Besttigung und sogar Aufwind.

Mir wird schlecht wenn ich Gauck und Merkel jubeln sehe; so sehr mir auch der Fussball gefllt.
Quote:
# 113 Ich gehoere zu den 0.8% die den Sieg der BRD und vor allem den Rummel um den Fussball zutiefst bedauern. Warum? Der Nichtstaat BRD wird nur als etwas wahrgenommen durch die aeussere Verpackung, insbesondere die Nationalmannschaft verschafft der BRD einen Nimbus des Erfolges, der guten Politik und der erfolgreichen Wirtschaft, der vermeintlich funktionierenden Gesellschaft, der Befreiung von der Vergangenheit, blablabla. Wenn als die BRD gewinnt, dann profitiert das Establishment. Warum wohl draengt sich Merkel in die Kabine und alle anderen Politiker und System-Bonzen machen auf Schland. Der Export mit Mercedes, Nivea und sowieso das ganze in England verkommene System des kommerziellen Fussballs mit Spielertransfer-Casino und Wettindustrie dient dem Erhalt des jetzigen Systems. Insbesondere ist es eine Jubelorgie fuer Multikulti. Ihr auf PI fragt euch immer, warum waehlen denn die Leute die Blockparteien und nicht die Alternativen wie Die Freiheit, PRO usw. Der Effekt ist der gleiche wie beim Fussball. Es wird bei “Wahlen” ein induziertes Ereignis geschaffen wie beim Fussball, die Leute folgen hirnlos den Kandidaten und den Themenvorgaben des Establishment. Die Leute denken rueckwaerts gewandt, CDU, SPD oder Gruene ist fuer die das Gute und Wahre aus BRD-Nostalgie und entsprechender quasireligioeser Grundvorstellungen heraus. Die Bindung an die jeweiligen Parteien ist wie beim Fussball, rein emotional, bedingungslos und auf Loyalitaet bis in den Tod ausgerichtet, und genauso ist es bei >80% der Waehler der Blockparteien. Nehmen wir an, die Leute wuerden sich nicht mehr fuer die WM interessieren und aufhoeren mit der BRD mitfiebern. Das genau waere der Wendepunkt wenn sie auch andere Parteien mehrheitlich waehlen oder genauer gesagt in Betracht ziehen wuerden.
Quote:
I belong to the 0.8% who deplore the victory of the Federal Republic of Germany, and above all deeply the hype about the football. Why? The non-sovereign BRD is only perceived by the external packaging, in particular the national team gives the FRG an aura of success, good policy and a successful economy, supposedly functioning society, liberation from the past, blah blah blah. If the Federal Republic of Germany wins, then the establishment are benefited. (...)
Media tries again to shoehorn in multiculturalism

Und heute im Morgenmagazin werden scheinheilige Kopftuchtrgerinnen in Berlin als angebliche Fans prsentiert! Typisch diese ARD/ZDF Arschfuzzis!

In Dresden (eastern Germany), a synagogue was spray-painted with the slogan stop killing people (in English).

In Frankfurt (western Germany), a synagogue was sprayed with f**k the Jews.

In Detmold (western Germany), a memorial stone in front of a synagogue was desecrated with red paint, making it look as if it was bloodied.

Default Lowlife losers get slap on wrist for appaling child murder:

This is a prime argument in support of racial hygiene.
The defence attorney pleaded for a probation sentence for the child's stepfather and for the dropping of charges for the mother, despite the stepfather severely abusing the child over a lengthy period of time which ended with a rupred intestine resulting from the stepfather's repeated blows to the child's abdomen, followed by the pair's withholding the child's medical attention which resulted in death.
The district attorney pleaded for a life sentence. The stepfather was ventually sentenced to only 12 years imprisonment (The entire sentence will be served, only if "good behavior" isn't figured in) and the mother to 8 years.
Typical, in these type of scenarios is the total absence of the biological father who may not have known until now that he is a biological father.
Despite the pixelling out of most of this moron's mug, there's enough there for some prison without a license to practice dentistry to identify that stupid laugh exposing that double-row fang, if a BILD tabloid issue were to enter Berlin's prisons. In a normal scenario, they'd have to cage that imbecile together with Fags and petty criminals, to prevent a death sentence through Inklusion:

Quote:
Die Verteidiger des Paares hatten fr Matthieu K. 7 Monate auf Bewhrung wegen fahrlssiger Ttung und Freispruch fr die Mutter gefordert.


The only thing positive to come from this is that this small girl will never grow up to be a Mudshark or a genetic misfit like her mother:

Small sign of alleged political incorrectness enrages German media. FAZ accuses German players of racism and mockery against Argentines - they destroyed the image of Germany as a "cosmopolitan, tolerant nation"

Another critique of football patriotism

http://identitaere-bewegung.de/index.php?id=66

http://www.microsofttranslator.com

Teilzeitpatriotismus eine identitre Kritik

Es ist wieder soweit, Knig Fuball regiert unser Land. Die WM hat uns fest im Griff und berall treibt der Teilzeitpatriotismus mitunter absurde Zge. Deutschland versinkt im schwarz-rot-goldenen Fahnenmeer und huldigt Fuballsldnern, die sich Nationalspieler nennen, aber sich dennoch zu fein sind die Hymne ihres Landes zu singen. Ob nun alberne Hte getragen werden, man sein Bier aus Bchsen in Nationalfarben trinkt oder man gar Toilettenpapier in die Farben der Freiheit einschweit. Jeder mchte an dieser seltenen Erscheinung verdienen, mchte profitieren und auf den patriotischen Zug aufspringen, der nur alle paar Jahre durch unser Land braust. Von den zahlreichen Fans in der Bevlkerung, die endlich einmal aus ihrer Identittskrise ausbrechen knnen, von der Politik, die sich in Sicherheit whnt, weil sie im Rcken der WM unliebsame Gesetze durchwinken kann (Stichwort: Fracking), vom chinesischen Lieferanten, der einen weiteren Absatzmarkt fr seine giftigen 5 Euro Trikots findet, bis hin zum bekannten Hersteller von Schokoladenbrotaufstrich, der seine ungesunden Produkte als Hauptnahrung der Nationalelf verkauft. Sie eint in diesen Tagen etwas, was nicht im Geringsten mit dem zu tun hat, fr das tausende, ja Millionen unserer Altvorderen gekmpft und gelitten haben und sogar ihr Leben lieen. Die Rede ist vom wahren Patriotismus! Jener Patriotismus, den die Teilzeitpatrioten lngst nicht mehr kennen oder noch nie kannten. Dem Gefhl, welches jedem Mitglied der Gemeinschaft innewohnte und die Menschen seit ewigen Zeiten einte, weil sich in ihm die Verbundenheit mit der eigenen ethnokulturellen Identitt manifestierte.

Dem Gefhl, welches seit Jahrhunderten stets tiefste Liebe zur Heimat bedeutete und welches mehr war als billige Folklore, mehr war als eine Plastikfahne am Autofenster und mehr war als ein Massenbesufnis beim sogenannten Public Viewing! Nein, wahrer Patriotismus sieht anders aus! Er muss anders aussehen und kann sich nicht auf Events beschrnken, in denen ein Pseudo-Wir-Gefhl generiert wird. Man kann ihn nicht an- und ausziehen wie ein billiges Chinatrikot oder als verstaubtes Relikt aus der Versenkung holen, wenn es mal opportun ist. Doch wie kommt es, dass ein Groteil von uns dieses Gefhl nicht mehr kennt und fast vollstndig verloren hat? Grnde gibt es viele und Schuldige sicher auch. Dennoch nehmen wir Deutsche in diesem Dilemma eine Sonderrolle ein. Kein anderes Land tut sich so schwer damit einen gesunden Patriotismus zu pflegen, sich ein unabhngiges und stolzes Selbstverstndnis zu geben und dies auch zu leben. Jahrzehnte lang hat man uns links indoktriniert, hat den Schuldkult kultiviert und aufrechterhalten. Man hat so ganze Generationen zu Erbttern- ja Erbschuldigen gemacht und sie damit fr die grte Katastrophe des 20. Jahrhunderts in Geiselhaft genommen.

Doch wir Identitre sagen: Nein!. Wir lassen uns unseren Patriotismus nicht nehmen und uns nicht ins Nazi-Eck drngen! Wir stehen zu unserem Land und zu unserer ethnokulturellen Identitt. Und das rund um die Uhr, Tag fr Tag, ein Leben lang. Heimatliebe ist kein Verbrechen. Sie ist eine innere Einstellung und braucht gerade in heutigen Zeiten Mut und Rckgrat, auch und gerade abseits der WM! Werde auch Du ein wahrer Patriot! Reih Dich ein in die Identitre Phalanx fr Heimat, Freiheit und Tradition! Schreib uns!

Most JF (conservative, though anti-NS newspaper) respondents do not think WC celebrations will improve prospects for patriots and nationalists long term.

Quote:
Umfrage der Woche

Hunderttausende feierten am Dienstag in einem schwarzrotgoldenen Meer die Fuball-Nationalmannschaft. Fhrt der WM-Sieg zu einer neuen Patriotismus-Welle?

Ja, die vielen Deutschlandflaggen zeigen, da es kein Problem mehr ist, sich zur Nation zu bekennen. 6% 26
Ja, gerade Jugendliche und Kinder werden mit einem unverkrampfteren Verhltnis zum Patriotismus aufwachsen. 15% 68

Nein, Medien und Politik werden die patriotischen Ausbrche schnell wieder in die rechtsextreme Ecke stellen. 29% 128

Nein, es handelt sich dabei lediglich um Party-Patriotismus, der nach wenigen Wochen wieder vergessen ist. 50% 221

"Schwarzrotgold ist auch nach dem Titelgewinn noch geil." - Glaubt Herr Hoffgarrd ernsthaft, diese Party-Patrioten wrden dem Ausverkauf unserer Lebensgrundlagen und der weiteren Kolonisierung mit kulturell inkompatiblen Auslndern mutig entgegentreten oder zumindest den "Mut" und Verstand aufbringen bei der Wahl in der Wahlkabine versteckt das Kreuzchen an der richtigen Stelle zu machen? Lieber Herrgott, dieser Partypatriotismus ist kein "Patriotismus" sondern reiner und gnzlich unpolitischer Hedonismus und hat doch nicht das geringste mit einem gesunden gemeinschaftlichem Selbsterhaltungstrieb und einer gesunden ethnischen Solidaritt zu tun!

Man tusche sich nicht!

Die 34 Millionen fuballnrrischen Deutschen vor den Bildschirmen und die Hunderttausende auf den Straen feiernden ..

Getting to Know Your Inner Racist

by Ronald Glaser

The new racist mania is called anti-racism. On Thursday, ZDF-neo viewers can discover what bizarre fruits are produced by the fixation of do-gooders on questions of racism. At that time, the something-to-do-with-social theoreticians Juliane Degner and Mark Schrdter, with moderator Amiaz Habtu, intend to drag the racist in us into the light of day. The central figure of the TV documentary is Jrgen Schlicher, an unsympatico diversity management trainer. His credo is, Thank heavens it is no longer the case that everyone with a good job in Germany has a German name.

Moderator Habtu leaves no doubt about where this is headed. At the very beginning, he cites a study to the effect that one-quarter of Germans are xenophobic. Racism in everyday life is quite subtle, and yet apparent, And does not support this absurd theory with a single fact.

Anti-racism training like this is based on the ideas of the American teacher, feminist and lesbian activist, Jane Eliot. In the 1960s, she developed this experiment, which has since then become a classic of diversity education and conditioned ensuing generations of American children in political correctness.

The Politically Correct Dogmas of a Pseudo-Scientist

Schlicher was Eliots student. For his workshop, ZDF hired 39 participants, screened by eye color blue-eyed over here; brown-eyed over there. The blue-eyed are bullied; the brown-eyed are favored. This is supposed to uncover the so-called mechanisms of discrimination. That is, drive out racism with racism.

The participants do not understand the psycho-terror and react with irritation. Apparently because all of them are thinking of the fee they are being paid, none of them stands up against Schlichers harsh comments. This, of course, is instantaneous proof for the two social consultants that witnesses do not turn against discrimination because of group dynamics.


Schlicher exhorts the brown-eyed. They are to discriminate against the blue-eyed as in his opinion the small, the handicapped, the dark-skinned or the non-Christians are treated in our society. No one contradicts this audacious thesis. Almost all of the participants subordinate themselves to the pseudo-scientists politically correct dogmas. This subservient mentality is the most horrifying thing in the entire experiment. There is a bright spot. A number of courageous individuals break away. They are the freedom-loving individuals who will not be manipulated. Unfortunately a minority.

Racism as a German Phantom Pain

Seen in this light, the test given the participants is telling. The brown-eyed are given half of the answers ahead of time. and are then supposed to make fun of the blue-eyed, because they dont know as much. By doing this, the people in charge are reflecting the degradation of educational standards to the advantage of immigrants. Naturally, they are not really aware of this innuendo, because they believe they have demonstrated the (fictional) privileging of the German middle class vis--vis immigrants.

The intention, according to the trainers, is to show the feelings which people who are disadvantaged because of their skin color, their ethnicity, their religion, their sexual orientation or their gender have to deal with all their lives,. So, while German youth on the streets and in the schoolyards have been experiencing the opposite of this for a long time, this could now be a phantom pain.

Falling for Leftist Propaganda

This broadcast also answers the question of what is racist. A racist incident is an event that the victim or someone else sees as racist. Ergo, people like Jane Eliot. With this concept, anyone can be made into a racist, or a victim of racism. The broadcast practices exactly that which it warns against in its 65th minute: Discrimination functions on a simple principle construction of a clear, stereotypical enemy image. For racist investigators, the enemy is the German racist.

The producers of such training sessions are looking for cut-rate manipulation of participants. But it is worth looking at the broadcast from another perspective. That is, it shows how easily people fall for diversity propaganda.

Ozil ("I will always be Turkish") gives his prize money to sick Brazilian children.

It is probably tactical that the high profile non-white on the German team is the one who is shown donating to humanitarian causes.

November 2013: The ultraliberal Spiegel on football and neo-"Nazi" hooligans.

Quote:
Football Violence: Neo-Nazis and Hooligans Find Common Ground

They call themselves the GnuHonnters, a take on the English term "new hunters." Their motto is: "Comrades in spirit. Many colors, but one entity." It refers to the fact that they support different soccer clubs. Three weeks ago, some of the members met at a small celebration in Berlin, as one hooligan group marked the 30th anniversary of its founding. There was beer, rock music, strippers and table dances. Eventually, one of the guests, a tattooed tank of a man with a bald head, trudged through the room with a giant snake on his shoulders.

The GnuHonnters are a consortium of 17 different soccer hooligan groups from all over Germany. Hooligans have traditionally battled each other, but now they have teamed up to form a network to fight together for a common cause. Worryingly, they are increasingly being supported in their efforts by violent right-wing extremists.
In the past, Western Europe was beset with violence at football games caused by troublemakers among each club's group of fans. But, in recent years, hooligan activity has been successfully suppressed by massive police operations with the cooperation of ordinary fans inside the stadiums of German professional football clubs playing in the two divisions of the Bundesliga, the country's top soccer league.

In response, the thugs have taken to fixing a time and a place with each other beforehand, so that they can meet and fight away from the stadiums and out of the public eye on grassland and fields. But now hooligan culture is on the rise again. Fan commissioners from Aachen, Braunschweig, Dortmund, Dsseldorf and Frankfurt report that hooligans who were active as long ago as the 1990s are once again showing their faces in the stands.

'Planned and Well-Organized' Attacks on Police

The Central Sporting Operation Information Center, a police body that tracks football violence, has attested to the fact that, in the fan bases of the Bundesliga clubs, there has been an increase "in right-wing motivated behavior" in the violent hooligan scene. At 16 clubs, the center identifies a crossover in membership between the football and far-right scenes. The Federal Office for the Protection of the Constitution, Germany's domestic intelligence agency, has spoken of a 15 percent overlap between football-affiliated hooligans and right-wing extremists. However, security officials in the Ruhr region of western Germany say the real figure is likely to be much higher.

In a trial involving the Elbflorenz hooligan group in Dresden, it emerged that many of the thugs work together. "There are repeated instances of violent attacks on police officers involving hundreds of hooligans on the fringes of football games -- planned and well-organized. We realized that there were increasingly violent right-wing extremists among them. Apparently they use the hooligan clashes as training," said chief prosecutor Jrgen Schr, who led the prosecution of the Elbflorenz hooligans, according to the Dresden-based daily Schsische Zeitung.

Schr further revealed that hooligans and neo-Nazis had met together in remote forests for weapons practice.

"Since we started aggressively pursuing right-wing gangs, their members changed the focus of their activities to hooliganism or autonomous neo-Nazi groups," Schr said. "For us, it has become more difficult to catch them."

Thugs and the far-right seem to particularly like the football environment, and there is also an enemy at hand in the form of so-called "ultras." In many European countries, ultras are traditionally a club's most passionate fans, traveling to all the games and making the most noise in support.

Subtle Agitation

For many ultra groups in Germany, in particular, being a fan goes hand in hand with certain political themes. They support anti-racism campaigns and demonstrate against commercialization. That does not fit with the hooligans' ethos, as it goes against their macho and violent world. Hooligans tell the ultras that they want "no politics in the stadium." It's an old slogan that right-wing exremists have used for years to infiltrate amateur sports clubs and youth movements. They want to win over young people through this ostensible separation of sport and politics, and to create a national consciousness through common fashions and music or attending openly right-wing speeches. It's subtle agitation.

Members of the GnuHonnters are easy prey. Like many right-wing extremists, they have a common enemy: They also consider the often left-wing orientated ultras a bane.

The GnuHonnters network was founded on a farm in the town of Leichlingen, in the western state of North Rhine-Westphalia. Back then, at the beginning of 2012, the meeting was made up almost exclusively of old-time hooligans with paunches. Members of the Borussenfront, a group of hooligans associated with the Borussia Dortmund club, sent out the invitations, and it was the perfect chance to drink beer and reminisce over battles past. That's how the event was described by one person who has since attended more meetings of the hooligans.
From meeting to meeting, the number of people in attendance grew, with many more younger hooligans, martial artists and youth squads. They met sometimes in Frankfurt, sometimes in Berlin, and never in the same place twice. A crude pamphlet was written and has acted ever since as a kind of mission statement.

Attacks by right-wing hooligans on left-wing fan groups have been on the rise for months. The most prominent example is with the long-established club Alemania Aachen, whose ultras fan group, Ultras Aachen, was forced out of its own stadium by continuous attacks from the far-right.

For many ultra groups, Aachen is an example of who ultimately holds the actual power in the stands -- those who are physically the strongest. The members of Eintracht Braunschweig's ultras, Ultras Braunschweig 01, are currently experiencing something similar. For weeks, they have been intimidated by their own hooligans. During the game against Borussia Mnchengladbach, there was a brawl in one stand occupied by home fans. As the stewards escorted the ultras out, the club's hooligans sang racist and homophobic songs. A few days after the incident, Eintracht punished the ultras, which shows just how powerless football clubs are against right-wing violence. In recent times, there have also been attacks by right-wing fans on left-wing ultras in Dortmund, Dresden, Duisburg, Dsseldorf, Frankfurt, Munich and Rostock.

On the outskirts of the Ruhr region, in a small caf right next to a lake, a member of the security services, who prefers to remain anonymous, lays out group pictures of the GnuHonnters. Old and young people pose together, some giving the Hitler salute. The investigator moves his finger over their heads, saying their names in turn. According to him, they are right-wing extremists from Berlin, Braunschweig, Cottbus, Dortmund, Dresden, Duisburg, Essen, Frankfurt and Munich. There are cadres from the right-wing extremist National Democratic Party (NPD), too. The agent explains how you can estimate the size of the GnuHonnters. The group appears to contain up to 300 people if you look at a photo from the last meeting.

But little can be done at the moment to combat them. The authorities need to first agree on responsibilities because the network is constantly active in different German states. In addition, the group rarely actually breaks the law -- the Nazi symbols of individual members, which are illegal in Germany, would not be enough to justify suppressing the whole organization. The investigator believes that the group will grow even larger in the coming weeks.

'Football Must Meet Its Immense Social Responsibility'

Gerd Dembowski, sociologist and fan researcher, also believes that right-wing hooligans will grow stronger. For many fans, the idea of ultras is "simply too trendy," especially for younger fans, who are increasingly turning to hooliganism.

"The hooligans are also experience-driven like ultras, but with a clearer structure," says Dembowski, who advises Bundesliga clubs in their anti-discrimination work. But he criticizes clubs for putting too much emphasis on slogans. "Eighty percent of anti-discrimination work is symbolic politics with posters and flyers," he says. "The clubs must teach their employees, appoint integration commissioners, strengthen fan projects. Football now has an immense social responsibility, which it must meet."

A few minutes before the Bundesliga game between Borussia Dortmund and VfB Stuttgart, a booklet is distributed by volunteers. The match, being played on a Friday evening under floodlights, is a big stage for Dortmund on which to confront the problem of right-wing extremism among the hooligans and ultras who follow the club. In the leaflet, there are neo-Nazi codes and how to decode them. In this way, fans can be more aware of far-right activities in the stadium.

Shortly before kickoff, a member of the far-right Dortmund hooligan group Northside climbs the fencing surrounding the immense Sdtribune, one of the largest football stands in the world. He rips his T-shirt, exposing his toned body. Then, with his right arm, he gives a Hitler salute. The singers within the ultra group called "The Unity" can only look on from their spot in the stand.
