Are the "lateral thinkers" only a collective movement of Corona critics ? Or are they a grouping with extremist structures? The parliamentary control committee of the state parliament in Baden-Wurttemberg will deal with this question on Thursday.
In a special meeting, it wants to discuss the potential danger posed by the movement. Over the weekend, it had become known that the Interception protection does not currently classify the movement as an "object of observation.
But more and more politicians and experts are warning against underestimating the danger. Federal Minister of the Interior Horst Seehofer (CSU) announced Tuesday that it wants to target the Corona protests more closely. The spread of disinformation and conspiracy theories in the pandemic "encourages radical forces and is likely to manipulate the democratic will".
