Throughout the 2020 Corona Crisis, Politicians and Media have struggled to ensure the public that the only people who question their Covid-19 lockdown and quarantine policies were Right-wing extremists, AfD voters, “climate deniers”, so-called ‘Reichsbürger’ (fans of the former Germany Monarchy) or at least AfD voters. The narrative was that everyone who wants to re-open society and the economy is a bad person who wants your grandma to die.
A new study by a research team from Basel found the activists and protesters of the largest anti- lockdown group – the Querdenker Movements – consist of a broad spectrum of mostly Green party voters, Left- party voters, but also conservative AfD voters. There is a high percentage of entrepreneurs and academics.
As the mainstream media now sees itself forced to acknowledge this colourful spectrum, instead of calling this diversity, the mainstream Zeit- online calls it “an enormously contradictory Movement.”
The study was conducted by sociologist Oliver Nachtwey of the University os Basel, as reported by Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung.
