What this poll sends to the world is a signal: already Europe has reached the stage where the anti-immigration vote is not permitted to win at the ballot box. For those Muslims whose ultimate game plan is turn Europe into Eurabia this is fantastic news. For the increasingly frustrated native Europeans who have to put up with this, it may be a sign that democracy has failed them.
It’s bad for Austria. Does Austria really need a president who once declared “Whoever loves Austria must be shit?”
The Austrian presidential election result has been a triumph for the cause of extremism in Europe.
We were continually assured by the left-liberal media how awful it would be if the (supposed) “far-right” candidate Norbert Hofer won.
But actually the victory of Green candidate Alexander Van der Bellen – on, likely, a rigged ballot – is far, far worse.
It’s bad for democracy: Hofer lost by just 31,000 of the 4.64 million votes cast. Suspicions are bound to fall on the 700,000 votes cast in the postal ballot, which appears to be what swung it for Van der Bellen. But postal votes as we know – especially from the experience of Muslim-dominated constituencies in the UK – are prone to rampant fraud. Austrians who voted for Hofer are talking about “betrug” – fraud – and this may well be more than sour grapes. In some areas there was a remarkable 146.9 percent voter turnout. This stinks of a stitch up by the bien-pensant elite in unholy alliance with the immigrant bloc vote. As with the EU, so it is increasingly in national elections: the social democratic ruling class refuses to listen to the people.
It’s bad for social cohesion. Figures from Der Standard newspaper, show that university-educated voters split 81-19 for Van der Bellen, while lower-skilled workers split 86-14 for Hofer. What does this tell us? That the native working class in Austria – as in the US and across much of Europe – are angry about immigration and feel unrepresented by the liberal political elite. That academe is now such a hot bed of left-wing indoctrination and political correctness that the “educated” would rather keep drinking the Kool-Aid than think for themselves. This cannot end happily. Indeed, it was under similar circumstances in the 1930s that another Austrian-born citizen, considerably more “far-right” than Norbert Hofer, began his rise to power.
It’s bad for Europe. Of course the elite had to make sure Hofer lost. If he’d won it would have given succour to all those other European populist, anti-immigration parties such as France’s National Front and Germany’s Alternative for Deutschland (AfD) who are similarly keen to keep Europe European before it’s too late. What this poll sends to the world is a signal: already Europe has reached the stage where the anti-immigration vote is not permitted to win at the ballot box. For those Muslims whose ultimate game plan is turn Europe into Eurabia this is fantastic news. For the increasingly frustrated native Europeans who have to put up with this, it may be a sign that democracy has failed them.
It’s bad for Austria. Does Austria really need a president who once declared “Whoever loves Austria must be shit?” Forget the “far-right” slur used against Hofer. What about Van der Bellen’s party, the Greens? As anyone even remotely familiar with the environmental movement knows, these are Europe’s Watermelons – green on the outside, red on the inside. They’re anti-freedom, anti-capitalist, politically correct, pro-immigration, anti-Western. Only the university-educated could be stupid enough to see the label Green and imagine it stands for some kind of cosy, consensual, bunny-hugging centrism. Voting Green today is the equivalent of voting for the Communists in the 1950s or the Nazis and Fascists in the 1930s.
It was reported Tuesday that the European Commission is moving to make sure that their hegemonic hold on European politics isn’t broken by populist parties that want to save Europe from the Muslim migrant invasion.
“Norbert Hofer failed in his bid for Austria’s presidency, but he would have been cut out of EU decision-making,” reported the Times of London.
“The EU will isolate and use sanctions against any far-right or populist governments that are swept to power or presidential office on the wave of popular anger against migration.”
The Times quoted Jean-Claude Juncker, president of the European Commission, saying flatly: “There is no debate or dialogue with the far-right.”
This is the modern face of fascism: the “anti-fascists.”
In the twentieth century, the idea of totalitarianism was a German initiative and most European countries fell into line. Forty-five thousand concentration camps located throughout Europe speaks to the enthusiastic support the Germans received.
In the 21st century, the European Union is the Reich, and they mean for their power to be absolute. Juncker made it clear that the parties they call “far-right” will never have a voice in the EU no matter how big their vote totals get.
“Far right” – what is that, anyway? Nazis? The Nazi Party was far-left: the National Socialist German Workers Party. What is far-right? Anti-Islamization? Anti-immigration? Pro-freedom?
When you import an influx of Muslims, you get jihad. It’s hardly rocket science. The West faces jihad terror because a certain percentage of the Muslim population will kill in the cause of Islam. Yet Juncker and the other European Commission authorities are not moving to stop the migrant influx, but to crush dissent from parties that want to save Europe’s free and pluralistic societies.
It seems the Nazis are back, in a different uniform and with a cheekier narrative, but the objective is very much the same.
Let’s be honest, they slaughtered six million Jews and imported 25 million Jew-haters. The problem for them is the fact that their new immigrants hate Europeans, too. But instead of facing that fact and doing something about it, the European Union is paving the way for the suicide of Europe and the West by guilt-tripping Europeans into thinking it’s morally wrong to oppose the migrant invasion.
Eight hundred thousand more Muslim migrants are lining up to invade Europe. Greece has its hands full. Muslim migrants are storming the border. They are violently rioting in refugee camps. Terror, terror, and more terror — and even aside from terror, there is the fact that Muslims are the only immigrant group that comes to Western countries with a ready-made model of society and government (sharia) which they believe to be superior to what we have here, and they work to institute it.
And that is exactly what they are doing now in Europe — by force, or lawsuit, or intimidation. But as far as the European Union is concerned, “Islamophobia” is the real problem that they need to confront.
The Europeans learned all the wrong lessons from the horrors of World War II. The lesson that Europe had decided to avail itself of in the aftermath of Auschwitz was not that they were evil and behaved like monsters, but rather that everything was caused by nationalism and therefore what they really needed to do was create a European Union that would obviate their need for nationalism, so that they could become this transnational gobbledygook, and they’ll all get together and therefore they won’t have another Auschwitz.
The lesson they should have learned was that they were evil and they have to be good. That is the lesson they never learned. They have to be able and willing to make moral distinctions and stand up for the good and fight evil, and that is something the Europeans refuse to do.
They did not learn that lesson.
The UK could send a powerful message – a clear rebuke – to the EU’s authoritarian tendencies by voting for Brexit on June 23rd. Whether the British people can surmount the media’s propaganda campaign and all the political fear-mongering remains to be seen.
