      But the arrival of Germans in Paraguay dates back to way before the COVID-19 wave began. In 1887, a group of German antisemites moved to Paraguay with the goal of creating an Aryan paradise amid the harsh terrain. It didn’t work, but it helped lay the foundations that established Paraguay as a land of escape for Germans, including Nazis fleeing here after World War II—notably the Nazi doctor Josef Mengele, known as the Angel of Death for his deadly experiments at concentration camps—and now the German anti-vaxxers.

      Today, there are officially some 7,730 German expats living in Paraguay, but the German consul there told local media that the number is estimated at somewhere between 22,000 and 30,000 if you include those without proper paperwork. Over 1,600 Germans formally moved to Paraguay in 2021, triple the number who moved there the year before. The country is currently on pace to receive over 2,000 German immigrants in 2022, and they now represent the largest group of expats living in Paraguay, after Brazilians and Argentines.

      The flood of German anti-vaxxers, along with similar-minded expats from around the world, hasn’t gone unnoticed by Paraguayan society, and it’s led to a cavalcade of negative publicity. The public face of that controversy is Paraiso Verde.

      The community was founded in 2016 by another German-speaking couple named Erwin and Sylvia Annau. Since then, videos of Erwin Annau railing against Muslims and immigration in Europe have resurfaced in the press, along with details about his previous shady business dealings. But the Annaus see themselves and their new community as a freethinker’s paradise where people can live off the grid and escape Western restrictions.

      Take heart – Paraguay started requiring evidence of Covid vaccinations in January.   But careful – if folks who do not want the “vaccine” live in groups – they are probably Nazis!  That theory is so dripping with irony it is hilarious, but hey, brave new world.   Where the US openly supports Nazis, but still manages to use the term as an accusation.

      I’m sure there’s no cultural, historical or emotional connection between nazis and people who refuse to get the c9vid vaccine. The article implies that these Germans are against vaccinations for the same reason that some Germans are nazis, because they’re alienated, suspicious of government, convinced of Zionist conspiracies, etc. That’s possible, but it doesn’t make them actual nazis.

      Joseph Mengele, the Nazi doctor who did forced medical experiments on unwilling subjects, just like the pro vaccine mandate crowd today!

      All governments lie to their citizen's, but only Americans believe theirs.
