Thomas Ludwig Albert Oppermann (born 27 April 1954 in Freckenhorst, West Germany) is a German politician with the Social Democratic Party (SPD). From 1998-2003, he was the Minister for Science and Culture in the German state of Lower Saxony.
Faced with 800,000 migrants arriving in Germany in 2015, Oppermann said his party would never accept a "CSU proposal to create 'transit zones' near the border, where asylum seekers with no chance of staying could be quickly sent back home".
Oppermann is member of the Television Board of ZDF (Zweites Deutsches Fernsehen) a German public-service television broadcaster based in Mainz, Rhineland-Palatinate.
Oppermann stated: "In the fight against fake news, conspiracy theories, hate and sedition", the coalition parties will exploit the legal framework to its full extent and tighten the rules if necessary. Facebook must be obligated to quickly delete or correct news that are proven to be fake.
