erman thought police raided the homes of a host of Germans for allegedly posting "anti-migrant messages, anti-Semitic messages and songs with banned lyrics" on social media, the Associated Pressreports.

BERLIN (AP) — Berlin police say they've raided 10 residences in the German capital in a crackdown against far-right hate speech on social media.

Police spokesman Michael Gassen said Wednesday the morning raids involved nine suspects who used Facebook, Twitter and other social networks to spread hate. He says authorities want to emphasize "the Internet is not a law-free zone" and that if illegal speech is posted "it won't be without consequences."  <More at the link>

Police searched around 10 homes in Berlin on Wednesday morning as they attempted to find evidence of a group that had allegedly posted xenophobic and anti-refugee content on the Internet. 

As a result of the operation, which featured some 60 police and security officers, handguns, knives as well as laptops and smart phones reportedly belonging to the group were seized. According to the Berlin Police, the devices' contents has not yet been evaluated. 

SOT, Stefan Redlich, Berlin Police spokesperson (German): "What we did today involved 60 officers in 10 houses. We sequestered these laptops and now they will be evaluated and through this evaluation we will try to find matches between computers and posts. And if it is successful, this will be proof and this case will be brought to court." 

SOT, Stefan Redlich, Berlin Police spokesperson (German): "There are posts that become so popular on the Internet and so many people discuss them that we get over 50 notifications about one single post, because we are contacted by people regarding these posts. And I can say that we prove every single case and we do everything possible in order to identify the persons who are responsible for that. Sometimes is surprisingly easy because people do it under their real name."

Banned song lyrics?
I wonder if Rammstein's Weisses Fleisch (White Meat) is on the list.

Here's another article about what's going on:

German Government Moves To Prosecute People Who Protest Against “Refugees”

Last week, I did a story about a gang of Muslim teenagers that severely beat up a nine-year-old German boy for fun. When the boy’s father confronted the Muslim teen’s parents and called the police, not only did the police do nothing, but the next day, the German government sent federal police to the German family’s house, beat up the father, and he is now awaiting trial for “intimidating refugees.” In the meantime, the police have denied that the boy was actually beaten up and are saying it was a fake.
And the best part of it all is which branch of the German Government is “investigating” and prosecuting these people: The “Anti-Extremism Unit” and the “Politically Motivated Crimes Unit.”
