G20 Riots Took on ‘Characteristics of Terrorism,’ As 476 Cops Left Injured


Riots during the G20 conference in Hamburg, Germany, grew so fierce at times that government observers characterized the protests as akin to a terror attack.

As it was, 476 police officers were injured during their attempts to control the rioters.

Police patrolling the protest-filled streets of Hamburg, Germany, for the G20 conference were themselves the target of much violence.

The street protests lasted for days. And they were marked by massive mayhem that ranged from fires in the streets, clashes between protesters and cops and injuries and screaming, to traffic blockades and banner waving — the far-left’s typical means of expressing opposition.

But a terror attack? That’s pretty out-of-control.

Yet, that’s how at least one government official described the scenario.

“Such small-minded skirmishes are the business of people who took a whole city hostage for their dimwittedness in an almost terrorist manner,” said former European Parliament president Martin Schultz, in a Der Spiegel report.

So what were the protests about?

Some wanted the Social Democrat, or SPD, mayor of Hamburg — Olaf Scholz — to resign.

From Breitbart:

The riots in Hamburg, which lasted for several days, saw the city lit on fire and 476 police officers from all over Germany injured by far-left extremists. The riot led to large-scale condemnation from many political leaders and calls for the Social Democrat (SPD) Mayor of Hamburg Olaf Scholz to resign, Der Spiegel reports.

The leader of the SPD and former European Parliament President Martin Schulz said the rioters’ actions displayed “the characteristics of terrorism”.

“Such small-minded skirmishes are the business of people who took a whole city hostage for their dimwittedness in an almost terrorist manner,” Schulz added.

Justice Minister Heiko Maas, also of the SPD, said that future political summits should not be held in German cities. This was countered by Interior Minister Thomas de Maizière of Chancellor Angela Merkel’s Christian Democratic Union (CDU) who said: “We will not allow a group of radical violators to determine whether, when, and where heads of state and government come together.”

Mr. Maas also demanded better information sharing in Europe regarding far-left extremists. “The brutal riot tourists stop at no borders. A high proportion of the violent extremists travelled to the G-20 from other European countries,” he said adding: “We experienced a new quality of violence, which we should react to with more cooperation in combating extremists.”

Shortly before the riots, police had warned they expected left-extremists to come to Hamburg from all across Europe.

President of the Federal Police, Dieter Romann, said the violence during the riots was on a scale not predicted by authorities. Police say 186 people were arrested and remain in custody whilst another 225 were initially arrested but then released shortly after.

Hamburg Senator Andy Grote of the SPD said the main problem was the presence of the protest camp in the district of Altona which he claimed had led to the violence. Days before the riot, police had attempted to clear the unauthorised protest camp using a water cannon and pepper spray on protestors leaving five of them injured.

Supposedly, city residents harmed by the protests, and city business owners who suffered losses due to the protesters, are being offered compensation.

Police are currently distributing information on how citizens and business owners can file their claims with the government.

    Who or what were these anarchist terrorist?
    Perhaps Comrade Bernie has resurrected its “college” into an anarchist terrorist training center.
    Our question is will the mere under axed subjects pay the bill.

    So? What is so unusual about muslims in a muslim nation, even if they are described as leftists, from resorting to violence? That is the only problem solving tool muslims and leftists have, the realistic solution is more violence to the degree act they have to acknowledge it, or get pounded harder. Discussion and reason do not work with emotional mentally deficient cult members.

    • Rob Porter

      The fundamental problem here was the police being too gentle. Once the crowd resorted to violence and demonstrated that it was willing to murder, senior police officers, accompanied by marksmen, should have singled out riot leaders and put a bullet through their brain. This has a very dramatic effect on the riot mob. On Cyprus in the fight against EOKA the Brits found this very effective.

      they need to take back their country from the evil EU and it’s open borders, One World Order of evil

  • santashandler

    A European parliament president said they took a “whole city hostage for their dimwittedness in an almost terrorist manner,”……And, they even let 225 of the vicious rioters go. If a head of gov is calling this a ‘terrorist style attack’ perhaps people should wake up. All the while, the leftists/rioters/muslims, etc., become more and more emboldened by the day and Germany gets weaker and weaker.

    Every place they go they take take take, this is the reward for accepting muzzies. You can’t expect them to contribute anything positive t’s all about death and destruction.

  • AlgorithmicAnalyst

    There are plenty of already known police tactics for preventing such demonstrations from getting out of hand.

  • aebe

    Rock salt and peppercorns are an excellent short range deterrent . Still , there is that grand solution from earlier days- Shoot every rioter , hang every looter . No free people should have any tolerance for such behavior .

    This current stage of war began in 1979 in my opinion when the USSR invaded Afghanistan. It is now in it’s 38th year and still their is no nation who will state ‘The world is at WAR”. Of course some could reasonably argue that it has it’s genesis from when Lucifer was cast out of heaven or when Eve ate the apple or when Islam was born. Doesn’t matter much I guess. What matters is that individuals recognise that beyond all the hoopla there is a battle for souls being waged and the way things are going….it is not a ridiculous assertion to suggest that it is getting to the point when God like a barman at at midnight will simply say “Closing time folks”. My take (for those who care to hear it) is that their are two historical figures of note and the rest are bystanders. Adam representing the world and Jesus representing heaven. Time to choose sides.
