!!! UPDATE 1 – GOOD NEWS !!!

EIKE informs they managed to find an appropriate place in Munich, on time and that all the reservations as well as dates remain valid. Unfortunately, for safety reasons, they have to keep the location secret. Free speech in Germany! (But only if you do it in secret).

========================================

Just like the 1930s. There’s no question that freedom of science and speech are under heavy attack in Germany after dozens of distinguished but dissenting scientists have seen their long planned science conference cancelled due to intimidation by leftwing extremists.

This latest climate conference cancellation comes just after leftists coerced the University of Hamburg to disinvite political leaders from making on-campus appearances.

The same has also just occurred at the famed University of Göttingen.

The problem of suppressing open discussion has deteriorated to such an extent across Germany over the recent years that even according to leftist Spiegel: 75% of journalists and writers are “very concerned” or “somewhat concerned” about the state of free speech in Germany!

Free speech in Germany is in state of crisis.

Munich NH Congress Center bullied, cancels at last minute

The latest free speech suppression and intimidation has unfolded in Munich: The 13th International Climate and Energy Conference, sponsored by the European Institute for Climate and Energy (EIKE) and CFACT, has seen its contractual agreement torn up, and the event was booted out of the conference facility at the last minute.

Pressured by “left-green mob”

According to EIKE spokesman, Prof. Horst-Joachim Lüdecke, “a left-green mob” pressured the hotel management of the NH Congress Center in Munich(Aschheim) “to illegally cancel the accommodation contract”.

EIKE had gone to court and demanded revocation of the termination in an emergency motion. However, today, a Bavarian court ruled in favor of the NF Conference Center, citing “security reasons”. German law is no longer able to protect.

EIKE is a non-profit organization, like the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research (PIK). The Jena-Germany based EIKE plans every year a scientific conference on current climate and energy topics. This year it was planned to take place in Munich on November 22nd. But now its attendees will have to make new last minute plans.

More than 200 scientists and attendees had booked, many paid

More than 200 international scientists and experts had long since booked and paid for their travels, as well as their hotels – many of them in the conference hotel NH Congress Center itself. Some of them were planned to come from overseas, the USA, Canada and Australia. Media representatives also asked to be accredited, this year much more than usual.

Distinguished scientists were to appear

But the problem is that the 13th International Climate and Energy Conference is one that allows alternative – NON-ALARMIST – views on climate science to be presented, for example by distinguished scientists such as astrophysicists Nir Shaviv of Israel and Prof. Henrik Svensmark of Denmark. More than a dozen were slated to speak.

Antifa intimidates NH Conference Center

However, this open scientific discussion was too much to take for the far left-green Antifa and other like-minded radical organizations. This time they really mobilized against the “climate change deniers”.

At its Facebook site the radical leftwing Antifa organization recently called on its followers to take aim at the Munich NH Congress Center for hosting the EIKE event, posting at its site the following comic image:

Antifa posting: “Strike against EIKE! Put the heat on climate deniers!”

EIKE has published scientific works and peer-reviewed publications and is involved in the promotion of scientific education. The conference was intended to continue extend this work.

The agreement to host the conference at the NH Congress Center Munich was duly signed by both parties already back in May and was followed shortly afterwards by a “substantial down payment”, according to EIKE. Everything was settled. Then came the science brownshirts.

Mob descends on NH hotel, disturbed guests, staff

The initial spark setting off the protest of the NH Congress Center Munich (Aschheim) hosting the EIKE climate conference was launched by editor Paul Gäbler of the Berliner Tagesspiegel, who publicly slandered EIKE as an “AfD-near climate denier think tank”. The AfD is Germany’s new and growing right party that has has been surging in recent polls and elections nationwide. It’s the only party in Germany that challenges alarmist climate science and acknowledges natural climate drivers.

Intimidation by journalists

In September, Gäbler called the management of the NH conference hotel and asked if the positions of EIKE were known to them.” At first NH management declined to comment, but “journalist” Gäbler persisted and the NH caved in, issuing a delcaration: “Denial of man-made climate change is not compatible with the values of the NH hotel group.” and said it would review the matter.

Mob descends on the conference facility, management caves

But it remained quiet for a while. Requests by EIKE as to whether the accommodation contract was endangered remained unanswered on the part of the NH management in Berlin. But then NH management panicked after Munich Antifa and auxiliary groups from the environmental scene mobilized. On November 9th, a mob of 15-20 people appeared inside the hotel and disturbed guests and employees.

They mixed in with the guests in the lobby and distributed a flyer to employees and guests, announcing further activities in case the conference took place.

According to the hotel management of the NH Congress Center in Munich (Aschheim), they apparently “forced” them to cave in “by singing songs and distributing leaflets”.

NH Munich Conference Center gets a hate letter

At about the same time, an open letter from the Munich Environmental Institute was sent to the NH Munich Conference Center management demanding they not make conference rooms available to EIKE.

The letter begins by telling the NH Munich Conference Center how influential the Institute fancies itself to be, and claims “EIKE denies man-made climate change and is trying to influence political parties and public opinion.”

The letter ends by demanding the NH Munich Conference Center management  “not provide the climate change deniers any space.”

“Please disinvite EIKE.”

Thus the NH management terminated the contract (in spite of the previously granted contract extension) due to a perceived “danger to its guests and employees.”

Big win for violent radicals, loss for free speech

The Berliner Tagesspiegel (TS) reported triumphantly at the news: “NH hotel group disinvites EIKE, climate change deniers have to find a new venue,” was the triumphant headline in the leftist Tagesspiegel.

“This is comparable to the behaviour of arsonists who first set a fire and then proudly report about it,” commented EIKE.

German court green lights coercion, suppression of speech

All attempts by the EIKE Board to avert the contract cancellation, which was demonstrably based on defamation and lies, did not alter the NH Conference Center decision. EIKE took immediate legal action against this, hiring well-known law firm Steinhöfel, but to no avail. The conference is cancelled.

German rule of law is failing

At its site, EIKE called the coercion and intimidation to force NH to shirk its contractual obligations a “particularly serious case of coercion and blackmail for the suppression of scientific facts.”

“If the rule of law still works in this country, the court should make a decision in our favour,” EIKE wrote.

No longer a constitutional state

With that, the German court has de facto ruled it can no longer protect and uphold the rights of persons to dissent and to speak freely. The court ruling sends a dangerous signal to radical leftwing organization, hinting to them s that it’s open season on dissenters.

Climate of fear

EIKE writes that all hotels and conference centers throughout Germany “are already so afraid of Antifa and their thugs, as well as their green auxiliary troops, that they have no more confidence in the protection by our constitutional state. This makes them willing opportunists. A constitutional state that allows this is no longer a constitutional state.”

On the brink of leftist anarchy

The last minute, sudden cancellation by the Munich NH also results in hefty damages to a number of parties involved in the conference. “Travel expenses have now been spent in vain,” EIKE says. “Perhaps the NH-Conference Center would even come to its senses, recall the rule of law and bring charges against the Antifa (Unknown).”

Caving in to extreme leftist pressure sends the wrong signl, EIKE warns. “The reputation to have given way to the pressure of the street will perhaps deter more future visitors of the NH Conference Center than visitors who have apparently forgotten where it leads if fascists of all colours, whether left, green or brown, are not fought with all means of our constitutional state and immediately brought before the judge.”

    A mob wants to take over without the slightest qualification for leadership. A triumph of mediocrity.

  2. Walter H. Schneider

    Good report but change the start of it to “Just like the 1930s”.

  3. Tom Anderson

    The report is right that none of this is new. It is chillingly familiar. Yet, as too often, no one does anything about it. What is today’s limit?

    As to the repetitiveness, the prior symbiosis of the National Socialist German Workers Party (Nazis)and environmentalists has been studied in three scholarly books. There are parallel if more general warnings in F.A. Hayek’s “Road to Serfdom.” For them to work, both totalitarianism and militant environmentalism require absolute control over every member of society. The three studies on this are:

    “Nazi Oaks: The Green Sacrifice of the Judeo-Christian Worldview in the Holocaust,” by R. Mark Musser (Dispensational Publishing 2017)

    “How Green Were the Nazis? Nature, Environment, and Nation in the Third Reich,” Bruggemeier, Cioc and Zeller, editors (Paperback Ohio University Press, United States, 2006)

    “The Green and the Brown a Study of Conservation in Nazi Germany” (Studies in Environment and History), by Frank Uekoetter (Cambridge University Press, 2006)

    Go to the LMU, Ludwig-Maximillian Uni, München, and visit the White Rose memorial. This group, and the Scholl family, was executed for handing out leaflets criticizing the government 1943.

    Antifa are in fact anti-deutscher. They showed their true face in Dresden not long ago, calling for Bomber Harris do it again, with Union Jacks, in English. Bomber Harris was the genocidal Dresden fire-bomber after the war was militarily over.

    Nice photo of the trolls’ violent fascist playmates.

    Tolerance of that kind of evil is equivalent to support for it.

    In parallel news it was recently revealed that the new owner of 2 Berlin newspapers Holger Friedrich was a very active Stasi agent 30 years ago.
    The IT multimillionaire who bought the Berliner Zeitung and the Berliner Kurier, is said to have filed a dozen “incriminating” reports to the notorious East German secret police during his military service between 1987 and 1989.

    What do people think ?
    Are the current Berlin Antifa and Green movements, being influenced by Stasi-like trickery.. perhaps from Putin ?

    1. bonbon

      The Gauk Commission gathered 17 kilometers of Stasi reports after the Wall.

      Look at Hong Kong for antifa in action, and note 2 US senators in antifa black goading them on with ex Governor Patten in tow.

      Now where do you see Putin? Give Pelosi and shifty Schiff a call – they desperately need to refloat their Russia dingy.

  7. John F. Hultquist

    Science is increasing favoring the skeptics of anthro-catastrophic global warming.
    Meanwhile, children, poor thinkers, and political types (I repeat myself) have joined the Klimate Kult.
    This cannot end well.

    Very nicely dressed group of protesters in the photo, they look professional, image counts, clean helps. The protest clothing store was busy for a few days. No sack cloth for them, no ashes.

    You do get a laugh out of it. har

    You have to have some money to spend to don such garb.

    The goggles are protection in case mace is used to quell any violent activity.

    What they should do is go buy some work clothes, a pair of work boots, good ones, and go get a job. They’ll have to use their brains, what they have of them, and that would hurt too much. lol

    If you are going to support capitalism, do it openly and for your benefit, not surreptitiously and allow somebody to make a boatload of money off of you. You spent what little bit of money you had on junk you never needed in the first place. You’re looking like a hypocrite. Really stupid to boot.

    What fools humans can be.

    Evil ideology is at war with everyone.

    Those who embrace it are out to destroy companies that actually produce things.
    https://climatechangedispatch.com/labour-delist-firms-climate-change/

    They strive to create an integrity vacuum, where truth is utterly absent and lies are coordinated to achieve the maximum deceit.
    https://climatechangedispatch.com/media-conspiracy-greta-un-summit/

    And, as we see in the above article, their greenie brown-shirts are violently disrupting specific targets perceived as threats to their demented fascist schemes.

    This will not end well for any country that succumbs to these domestic terrorists.

    Max Planck overturned all physics in 1901, Einstein again in 1905, to name just two. Riemann and Gauss overturned all geometry, Cantor revolutionized number theory and Gödel demolished Russells logic.
    De Cusa of Bernkastel overturned theology and invented science itself, Kepler is the first physicist, and Leibniz with his calculus and dynamics opened the door to the industrial revolution.
    And after all Ben Franklin chose Leibniz’ Pursuit of Happines over Britain’s Locke’s “Property”, to the utter horror of the soon to be defeated British Empire.

    That is what the antifa anti-deutscher are vowing to bury.

  13. Gus

    Perhaps they should hold this conference in the future in a friendlier and freer environment, e.g., in nearby Prague, Budapest, or Zurich.

    Will the book burnings happen before or after the smashing of all the ‘denıer’ glasshouses?

    1. Yonason

      Books are soooo last century, tomO. Now we have the anti-social tech giants censoring Conservatives on the net. Same thing. It has already begun, and is accelerating more rapidly than imaginary temperature or sea level rise.

      1. tom0mason

        Yes Yonason,

        There are many ‘virtual books’ burning in progress with the screwing of the peer-review process, the banning, blocking and deplatforming of worthy commentators across academia, and the blogosphere generally.

        People are increasingly being lead into informational darkness by the commanders of new technology (Facebook, twitter, Google, etc.) These ‘anti-social tech giants’ commanders insist on conformance to consensus thinking through their editorial power of censoring items published on their platforms. They are not just ‘platform providers'(and not publishers) as they claim to many governments’ tax officials but are acting as powerful political and publishing forces.

        1. Yonason

          Precisely!

  16. Chris BC

    There are typos/errors in several places. Anywhere you see “Congress Center” it should be “Conference Center”. Still good information. I was at this hotel just over 5 months ago.
