The merger of state and corporate power doesn't require footsoldiers or public leaders per se.

Yesterday 10 years ago this was a mere conspiracy theory, and you would've been the laughingstock for raising such concerns. But we didn't see the BKA investigate an "informal killer-squad" composed of elite soldiers from the "Kommando Spezialkräfte" (KSK) back then.

Its plausible, and is interesting read and post si S&F but wont be a so say fourth reich. Germany would never be that stupid again to fall for it. Also... the day the coup happened europe and the rest of the world would deal with that in a day.
The way Hitler is portrayed here is far different than how he is portrayed in Germany. He's not a hero, but his purpose was to keep Jews from taking over Germany. That's what he told me anyways. In America, we're taught that he hated Jews and wanted to torture and kill them for no other reason than because he hated them.
I watched a few dramas/docs about the NSU but the way they were portrayed made it seem more of an Eastern issue.
[...]In fact, the intelligence failure was more profound than not stopping the NSU attacks: it extended to not even suspecting that right-wing extremists were behind the killing spree.
Rather than act to dispel fears of a cover-up with full public disclosure, the intelligence agency has taken the opposite approach. In 2012, the state’s interior minister ordered a secret internal review of why Temme and other agents with confidential sources within the local neo-Nazi scene had failed to realize that Yozgat was the ninth victim in a nationwide killing spree carried out by white supremacist terrorists. When that report was completed in 2014, after a review of 3,500 files, senior intelligence officials ordered that portions of it should be kept from public view for 120 years. Local legislators, who stumbled across a heavily redacted version of the document during oversight hearings, were not even notified of its existence.
Maybe this hardening of some people's stance could be a result of years of them being utterly ignored when it came to any sort of dialogue about the direction the state was heading in regarding immigration, the EU etc? Perhaps if such discussions had been had, AfD wouldn't ave risen so high and these neo's wouldn't be so numerous?
Going off some posts, it looks like some want to give it another go. What could go wrong?! Unelected militias murdering people who have been elected just might work! Ragnar Redbeard has a new fan base.

I think we have a land of 2 extremes in the EU.
One side stops short of saying that each country needs to erode their heritage and culture to assimilate into one entity free of national bounds.
On the other side, you have people who don't want that sort of change.
I'm sure I said that too simply, missed nuance, and possibly am way off.... That's just my readers digest take.
I also don't support one or the other, just saying what it looks like from over here.
We pay federal and state taxes, we have city ,state and country boundaries , we have passports,ect, but nationalism is a dirty word????

Perhaps this reported rise of the right is nothing but deep state actors playing a role to continue the familiar dialectic. That would explain this: A German Intelligence Agent Was at the Scene of a Neo-Nazi Murder. He Can’t Explain Why.
You must support the left because the other side are Nazis.
Pretty simple formula to herd people in to submission.
