The Tagesspiegel has a piece discussing the "Querfront" (literally: "Cross-Front") movement in Germany which unites the far-left and far-right in hatred of the United States, support of Putin, and rejection of mainstream press (Ein Netzwerk für Putin und Pegida).
A key figure in the Quefront movement is Willy Wimmer, who served in the Bundestag for 33 years and was the defense spokesman for the CDU (Christian Democrats). Wimmer is an outspoken critic of the United States and a reliable apologist for the Kremlin. I note that Willy Wimmer will speak at the upcoming anti-American Berlin conference on the US "occupation" (Besatzung) of Germany.
Most Americans will have never heard of Willy Wimmer. There are many YouTube videos of Wimmer attacking the "war-mongering" United States and praising Russian aggression in the Ukraine, but they are all in German. I did manage to find an interview with Wimmer in English with the Putin propaganda outlet Sputnik where one can gain insight into his virulent anti-American perspective:
WImmer agrees that the CIA has taken control of the United States:
Sputnik: The CIA and the military industrial complex in the United States have taken control of the Government. They will ally themselves with anyone, as long as it serves their goal of defeating an enemy. This time the target is Russia. There is not anyone else who is going to fight Russia or that they can use against Russia. And that is why I think they are supporting these Nazis. Do you agree with that?
Wimmer: Yes! There is a good understanding here that forces in the United States or in other countries, they act together with those who are willing to act against the common enemy. And there are strange words in Germany about such an attitude. And, therefore, it is complicated.We know for years that the right-wing forces in Germany are financially subsidized out of the US, out of Denmark, out of the Netherlands, out of France and out of Spain. So there is obviously a development on the Western side of our common continent, which is dangerous not only when you look into history.
Wimmer agrees that the CIA was infiltrated by German Nazis after the war:
Sputnik: After the WW II many Nazis went to the US, something like 40,000, I believe, they founded a lot of programs in the CIA. Do you see any correlation?
Wimmer: When you look on the today's situation, it is obvious that the forces in the US are eager to get control over the Russian resources of oil and gas, and everything else. And there is an ongoing interest of these US forces to get in control of everything which is on Russian soil. And the former US State Secretary Ms. Albright made it very public that what is on the Russian soil, it can't belong to one country.
There is obviously an understanding which has the historic roots, which go back to the situation after the First World War.
There is a common understanding among historians that you can't explain Adolf Hitler without mentioning Henry Ford. And the most complicated problem in my understanding has been the efforts of Henry Kissinger in the late 90's to destroy the international rule of law, and to replace it by the American-led international law structure.
Wimmer agrees that the Ukraine is killing Russian journalists. Wimmer is angry that Hillary Clinton said mean things about Vladimir Putin:
Sputnik: What is your opinion on the killing of journalists, on the refugee situation in Ukraine and then the Russian reaction to everything that is going on there?
Wimmer:The killing of journalists is an organized effort to continue with the control of the mainstream media in the West.
For some weeks the only chance to get a fair picture of the situation in Ukraine on TV has been Russia Today, France 24 or Al Jazeera.
When you kill Russian journalists, you see efforts to maintain the dominance in propaganda. It is not a coincidence that journalists are killed. It is a combined effort to do so. And, therefore, it is an attack on democracy, that's for sure.
With regards to President Putin, it is disastrous and it leads to a conflict, if you blame the president of another country in the way as it had been done here for weeks and months in the past. And we are all familiar with the words of Hillary Clinton and of others against President Putin.
We are now in the 25th year after the collapse of the Berlin Wall and here in Germany nobody has an understanding of blaming President Putin or the Russian people in the way that Hillary Clinton did it.
Based on everything I've read and listened to, Willy Wimmer is a reliable spokesman for Putin's Fifth Column in Germany.
