spread Shortly after the defeat in the First world war, the German Supreme army command started a conspiracy theory. The German soldiers had remained in the field, undefeated. Military have you no one can beat, claimed the generals. Blame for the defeat of father landless journeymen on the home front were rather, especially from the social democracy. Which would have pushed the army a dagger in the back – the only reason why the war had been lost. The military leaders were looking for a culprit to from the four years of suffering and insanity to distract, which they had caused.
In a similar stab in the back legend Hans potters straight-Georg Maaßen. Still Maaßen, the President of the Federal office for the protection of the Constitution. Due to his absurd Statements to Chemnitz, he should be in the Federal Ministry of the interior puts. Apparently, he felt this treatment to be unfair. Because in the 18. In October, he delivered in Warsaw in front of the heads of the European domestic intelligence services in a speech in which he made others responsible for his own end – the “radical left forces” in the SPD. They had used him to bring the coalition to Fail. Not his words would have led to his dismissal, but unspecified powers in the Federal government.
“I never would have thought that the fear of me, and the truth in parts of the politics and the media in such a panic and hysteria that four sets of to me sufficient to a government crisis in Germany, trigger,” he said, according to the süddeutsche Zeitung, the speech published.

What is recited Maaßen there in front of the heads of the domestic secret services, was a right-wing conspiracy theory. Right-wing conspiracy theorists claim that there is a left-wing opinion cartel in Germany, a left filthy attitude of dictatorship, as you call it, the other attitudes under pressure and the truth deny. Maaßen makes himself the victim of such trumped-up attitude of dictators. He argues with the same allegations, the use of these extreme right-wing constitutional enemies, to discredit the democracy that you want to abolish it.
Maaßen support to those people that he was supposed to protect Germany. He is to be found than the protection of the Constitution President the enemies of democracy and observe. How deep Maaßens must be hurt, how misunderstood he must feel that he forgets all of this just to make with such statements, other for one’s own failure to be responsible?
