Al Jizz covers Wilders & Europe’s “far right”

If the vid doesn’t play click on the link at AJ

European “far-right parties” have managed to appeal to the electorate with anti-Islam and anti-immigration rhetoric. That led them to make significant gains.

However, many of those parties are changing their political agendas with the aim of being like other parties.

What’s behind this shift? And was the danger of the far right exaggerated in the first place?

  1. Being anti-Islamic (therefore anti-fascist) has nothing to do with being ‘far right’. An out and out communist can certainly be anti-Islamic. So how is he/she ‘far right’?

    The islamophiliacs are just using the term to conflate people who have had a gut full of islam with Nazism
    (National SOCIALIST German Workers’ Party btw.)

  2. Well come on, they even call the leader of the National Socialist German Labour Party right wing.

    And no, most people are not afraid of people coming to their country and stealing their jobs.
    Those we don’t like are those who don’t intend to work – just collect benefits and child care payments for too many wives/children/grandparents.

  3. The terms “right wing” and “left wing” have been misused so long that they are now worse than useless. Truly, the label “right wing” is now just applied in an attempt to conflate critics of Islam with the fascists of WWII era. This is a trigger for some fearful reactions among those who are not in the habit of thinking for themselves.

    The Nazis were Socialists; National Socialists. They were not much different to other Socialists; collectivist, totalitarian, against Judaeo-Christian civilisation, against freedom and dignity for ALL individuals. The “state” mattered; persons did not matter.
