Ironical: Germany Bans Islamofascist Groups

Germany has banned three Islamist groups which have a goal of replacing democracy with Islamic law:

Germany said on Wednesday it had banned three Islamist Salafist groups which officials said aimed to sweep aside democracy and set up a system based on Sharia Islamic law.

The interior ministry said the bans, which come amid stepped-up observation of the Salafist community in Germany, took effect early Wednesday in the western states of Hesse and North Rhine-Westphalia.

The targeted organizations are "DawaFFM" and "Islamische Audios", as well as "An-Nussrah", which is part of the "Millatu Ibrahim" group that was already banned in June, a ministry statement said.

Searches were carried out at the homes of 20 people and property was seized, it added.

The reason this is ironical is that banning political groups is itself an act of fascism, even when the groups you ban are themselves antithetical to freedom. And yes, I know the Germans ban all such movements dating back to their Nazi past, but I just like the idea of some bureaucrat deciding which political movements are okay and which are against the law.

Today a bunch of Salaafi thugs who want to ban alcohol, tomorrow who's to say it won't be the Tea Party?

Oh well, even though I'm against such move in principle it's hard to be moved to anger when the groups being oppressed kinda deserve a good ass kicking.
