NYE, Germany: Leipzig Police Attacked With Rocks and Firecrackers, Use Water Cannons On Antifa

An original translation from Mitteldeutsche Zeitung. Translator’s note: the Connewitz neighborhood of Leipzig is an Antifa stronghold. As the city of Leipzig already knows what to expect, public transport had been rerouted to avoid Connewitz from 10:30 PM, and the glass windows had been precautionarily removed from bus and tram stops.

    • I think these attackers were Antifa. I just added an explanatory sentence in the introduction.
      “SN” likely stands for Saxony.

    • When you remove borders the police become the army.

      Which only, sorta, maybe, explains why military vehicles are roaming the streets on otherwise, once-totally-peaceful European holidays.

      What possible explanation is there for how everything has changed in the absolute worst way over just a few years?

      Enquiring minds want to know!!!

  1. I think the wrong group of Europeans are watching Iran and getting ideas.

    Germany has Islamic no go zones and now an antifa no go zone is being formed, where are the no go zones held by the ordinary Germans? You have two different ideologies and theologies creating nations within a nation, where is the nation to be the sanctuary for the ordinary German?

    • “[W]here are the no go zones held by the ordinary Germans?”

      Patience, laddie. Patience…

      Those Europeans who truly wish to survive will set up their own enclaves and I sincerely doubt that very many people wearing hijabs, burkas, (non-Sikh) turbans or spade-cut beards will make it out alive. Then again, maybe that’s just me.

  2. In the above photos, there is a clear shot of a masked guy holding two Molotov cocktails in his left hand while throwing something with his right. That guy needs to be doing about five years in a federal penitentiary for that but for some reason that isn’t what happens. Why not? The police should run out, grab that guy, pull off his mask, and arrest him with great prejudice, then the state should put him in prison for a nickel. That left wing rioter is carelessly putting peoples’ lives at risk and should not be allowed to get away with it.
