The danger of right-wing extremism

In the European Parliament on Monday 21 October, Claire expressed her deepest sympathies for the Jewish victims killed in the Halle Synagogue shooting in Germany. She made clear that we should not be too simplistic when calling out acts of extreme violence. She argues that those who willingly pointing fingers at anti-Semitism being a solely right wing problem too often fail to recognise that anti-Semitism has become rife in left-wing circles and organisations in Europe. She urged German authorities and MEPs in parliament not to call for bans on free speech, concluding that we need to be cautious with accusations and instead fight for freedom as well as the freedom to call out hatred.
