Austrian TV presenter smears Eurosceptics as 'National Socialists'

What a maggot:

From Politically Incorrect via Vlad Tepes, here is a video and an accompanying article about the latest TV snoid to refer to Geert Wilders as a “Nazi”, this one in Austria.

Many thanks to Carpe Diem for both translations, and to Vlad Tepes for subtitling the video, via GoV:

The Politically Incorrect article:

Was it just a slip of the tongue, or was it an intentional defamation of Geert Wilders?

On May 22nd, presenter of Austria’s TV channel “Plus 4”, Norbert Oberhauser (picture), called Geert Wilders and other EU-sceptic politicians “National Socialists” or briefly “Nazis” on his show “Guten Abend Österreich” (Good evening Austria).

It is just unacceptable to defame the famous Dutch politician and leader of the Party for Freedom (PVV), Geert Wilders, as a National Socialist, since he is known as a great friend of Israel. If you disagree with Mr Norbert Oberhauser, you can contact Plus 4 TV:

Vlad added his two cents’ worth (Canadian):

I would like to add, that Geert Wilders falls politically into the category of classical liberal and would have been called a pinko commie’ by much of the US mainstream of the 1950s for his defense of gay rights and Jewish people. To call him a Nazi is the height of deception.
