dbo:abstract
  • Hans-Helmuth Knütter (* 9. Mai 1934 in Stralsund) ist ein deutscher Politikwissenschaftler und Autor. Er war von 1972 bis 1997 Professor und ab 1993 geschäftsführender Direktor des Seminars für Politische Wissenschaft an der Rheinischen Friedrich-Wilhelms-Universität Bonn. Außerdem war er bis Mitte der 1990er Jahre als Extremismusexperte für die Bundeszentrale für politische Bildung und das Bundesministerium des Inneren tätig. In seinen aktiven Jahren im Wissenschaftsbetrieb durchlief Knütter eine Wandlung von konservativ nach neurechts. Er publiziert seit den 1990er Jahren in rechten Verlagen und Medien, wie etwa der Wochenzeitung Junge Freiheit, und wirkt als Referent bei Veranstaltungen am rechten Rand des politischen Spektrums. Er vertritt wissenschaftlich umstrittene Thesen und ist durch seine „Anti-Antifa-Kampagnen“ weitestgehend isoliert. Verschiedenen Beobachtern gilt er darüber hinaus als ein „Vordenker“ der neuen bzw. extremen Rechten. (de)

From 1989 to 1994, he acted as a rapporteur for the Interior Ministry of the Federal Republic of Germany and of the BpB. In the 1970s Knütter's works covered the complex interrelationship of Jewry and left-wing politics; studying totalitarianism, he noted the anti-liberal and anti-pluralistic traits of far-right thinking (Reichling, 1993). Critics have stated that from the early 1990s on, Knütter reflects right-wing conservative views; he has also been publishing in newspapers like Junge Freiheit. Knütter is considered an expert on political extremism, and his recent publications mostly criticize left-wing extremism. In co-authorship with Stefan Winckler, he has published the work A Handbook of Left-Wing Extremism - an Underestimated Danger (“Handbuch des Linksextremismus - Die unterschätzte Gefahr”), in which the authors claim that the activities of the potentially violent leftist militants - unlike those of the right-wing and far-right spectrum - are not paid due attention by the public. Knütter's own positions, on the other hand, have also been questioned, and his right-wing connections mentioned in the yearly reports of the Office for the Protection of Constitution of North Rhine Westphalia. Knütter's most recent publication is “Antifascism: the Mental Civil War” (“Antifaschismus : der geistige Bürgerkrieg”), published by the German right-wing association Die Deutschen Konservativen.
