Islam-critical blogger arrested in Austria


I received this email from a Geller Report reader in Austria. This is yet another instance of the walls closing in, the steady destruction of the freedom of speech by the globalist socialists who are clinging to power in Europe (and doing everything they can to destroy President Trump in the United States). The political and media elites are desperate to silence all opposition to their insidious agenda, which includes mass Muslim migration into the West and the destruction of free societies by the importation into them of huge numbers of sharia adherents. The arrest of Eichelburg is just the beginning.

I’m afraid I have very bad news from Austria: Walter K. Eichelburg is the publisher of Hartgeld, one of the most widely read politically incorrect blogs in German language. Yesterday, his house and his weekend house were both stormed by WEGA, the Austrian police’s anti-terrorist squad. Then they searched his houses, confiscated documents and all electronic equipment. Mr Eichelburg himself was temporarily arrested and interrogated. They even kept the identity of the prosecutor secret from him.

He has been released in the meantime. MMnews (a blog in Germany, and also the source of this information) was able to contact Mr. Eichelburg: His “crime”: Comments by readers who were critical to islam!

As far as I know, that’s the first time that an anti-terrorist squad was used against a blogger in a EU(SSR) country. This marks an incredible escalation, and we have to assume that more bloggers will be treated the same way, in the future. The raid comes only a short time after the “Global Compact for Safe, Orderly and Regular Migration (GCM)” was signed – which seems unlikely to be a coincidence, considering that the GCM also calls for suppressing politically incorrect opinions. Most Hartgeld readers are Germans, so it seems likely that the Austrian police was actually acting on a letters rogatory by Merkel’s regime.

At the same time, it’s reported that the French establishment is also escalating it’s campaign against the “yellow vests”, including doxing the addresses of their leaders’ relatives.

It might therefore well be possible that this is only the beginning of an EU(SSR) wide campaign.

In the search warrant, the prosecutor claimed that the letters from readers, Mr. Eichelburg publishes, were actually written by himself, using pseudonyms. Since then, his attorney could access the records: They received several, mostly anonymous, complaints. One of them was from Mr. Karl Öllinger, former member of the Austrian parliament for the Green Party.

The most important complaint came from the department of public prosecution in Munich, Germany. They seem to have been the driving force for the house search. In direct contradiction to the search warrant, they wanted to find out the identities of Mr. Eichelburg’s German readers who wrote to him. This will be impossible however, as Mr. Eichelburg always deletes his mails, after reading.

It should also be mentioned that they confiscated all guns and ammo in Mr. Eichelburg’s possession. He had legal permission for all of them. It seems that they want to try to label him as mentally unfit for possessing guns.

He’s now considering to leave Austria and move to Hungary or another country in Eastern Europe, to go on with his work.
