There was some debate on "historical memory" touching upon the Holocaust. Now I don't expect them to "deny the Holocaust", but they [the AfD, Alternative fur Deutschland Party] should insist on lifting any freedom of speech and research restrictions on the Holocaust subject. Ending the privileged status, if you want.
Of course, a marginalized, 'outsider' opposition on Germany's much-maligned "Dissident Right," to which the AfD belongs, cannot do it on its own, and will need CDU-SPD support, i.e. the Establishment. I believe the CDU and SPD may have more quiet support for getting rid of the Holocaust laws than we might think; as you will see below, I believe the SPD may be the more likely candidate for Holocaust Liberation.
I would like to know what other CODOH-Forum members think about this: How much 'quiet' support there is for an end to Holocaust Enforcement Laws?
Here is how I see the three current "second-tier" parties.
The Green Party and Die Linke
These two parties, as they currently exist, would never support easing or ending Holocaust thought-policing and prosecutions, as both parties are basically led by Holocaust Thugs, some sincere and many (most?) perhaps not so much sincere. They have used and still use the issue to take and hold power. It is a simple matter of politics, at some level. Much of these two parties' support, I think, comes from today's 'good' Germans who are ashamed of the Holocaust. The former Green Party head, Joschka Fischer, made a career out of pushing the Holocaust, and rose to the highest levels of government. Joschka Fischer was/is a Holocaust Thug.
An even more caricatured version of this is is Gregor Gysi [1948-] (Die Linke) (former Communist apparatchik of the GDR) (according to Metapedia, he has partial Jewish ancestry):
Their base may have free speech sympathizers, but unlikely the party bosses. Even if there are sympathizers in the party, I doubt they would ever actually fight for relieving Holocaust Enforcement.
We have to look to the so-called Volksparteien, or the Establishment. There is no other choice.
The CDU and SPD
My knowledge of German politics suggests that a sizable CDU faction is against these laws (call it the Ernst Nolte Faction), but also that few to none will speak out (for fear of prosecution, for one thing). The SPD, also, in my opinion, has such a faction, which is larger than one might expect.
In an earlier era, there was an "Egon Bahr Wing" of the SPD, which has mostly, by now, lost out to the pro-Holocaust elements of the new SPD in terms of leadership (the SPD itself has also lost most of its support since the Bahr era). Egon Bahr [1922-2015], part Jewish, is mainly remembered for his work as a kind of 'BRD's Henry Kissinger' in Ostpolitik of the 1970s under the SPD; from what I have read, he was actually a committed patriot and even a nationalist, of a kind. With this came desire for 'normalization.' By the 1990s, he argued that Germany could now be a 'normal country again' and ought not be 'held hostage' to Holocaust Thuggery; earlier in his career he wanted to distance the BRD from USA/NATO in this context, while the rival CDU were committed to, in Bahr's view, being a geopolitical U.S. satellite...
More recently, the case of Thilo Sarazzin, which many will remember. Sarazzin [1945-], a high-ranking SPD official, wrote a series of books, beginning in 2010, extremely critical of the late 20th century to early 21st century German political system; it hit to the very core, and the entire book was permeated, I think, with an implied criticism of Holocaustism. Being literally illegal, he said nothing directly about the Holocaust, but I believe it was consciously implied, in the way that hostages have to give coded signals to the outside world.
Does anyone agree with me that the SPD may be a source of salvation from discourse-control within Germany by Holocaust Thugs?
