Bavarian Grafenwoehr Home of New US Army Training Base is also New Home to NeoNazi AntiAmerican Hall

Davids Medienkritik: Neo-Nazis Plan Large "National Center" for Anti-American Rallies Near Major US Base

Initial link for this came from The Daily Demarche which led to Heard Here.

I had previously posted on the expansion of the base in Germany, wondering in amazement just why the US was expanding on a training base in Germany of all places.

From Medienkritik:
US Troops and Families Can Expect Hostile New Nazi Neighbors in Grafenwoehr, Germany

This is unbelievable: The German NPD, a hard right nationalist Neo-Nazi party, has purchased a large indoor tennis hall in Grafenwoehr, Germany, the site of a major US military base, to hold large anti-American rallies, festivals and events.

But it gets worse: According to the NPD, the new hall is to be dedicated as follows:

"On the occasion of the separation of the USA from Great Britain on the 4 of July (so-called Independence Day) we plan on Sunday evening, July 2, 2005 to inaugurate our liberated zone with a large anti-American culture festival.

Motto: "No to slavery, the rule of money and imperialism: Dissolve the USA now!" Further major events are planned."

The frightening part of this all: The slogans of the Neo-Nazis are strikingly similar to those of the hard left in Germany. The last time the two combined politically in this manner, they overthrew the Weimar Republic and destroyed German democracy. Anyone worried yet?

There's more so check it out.
