Posts Tagged ‘Far Right Europe’

With the Dutch elections just a couple of days away now, I decided it was important to reiterate – particularly to any readers in Holland – that the clown labelled “the Dutch Donald Trump” is actually a foreign agent being propped up to service a foreign agenda.

I already laid out clearly – in this much bigger article last week – that Geert Wilders is a Zionist agent, serving the interests of the extreme nationalist government that has been dominating Israel’s destiny since 2009 (and is now apparently dominating Europe’s and America’s destiny too).

But don’t take my word for it: take it from the country’s General Intelligence and Security Service (AIVD), who have investigated him over his “ties to Israel and their possible influence on his
loyalty.”

This is probably the most important thing that will be posted on this site this year, so I would ask anyone here to read it all the way through and then draw your own conclusions.

The underlying theme that emerges from this article – which I have been putting together since December – is one of a possible international conspiracy behind the radical shifts in Western politics that may be occurring: that the perceived ‘rise of the Far Right’ across Western societies is not just a simple reactionary movement based on anti-immigration sentiment or refugee hysteria, but something more planned and with more obscured roots.

It is also a case of those simpler, more obvious things too, of course: there are multiple causes for the current wave of ‘populism’ and angry mobs. But it would fit this paradigm best to remember the quote by Dennis Healey about nothing in international politics happening by accident but being made to happen.

What follows in this article then is (1) what I conclude to be a demonstrable conspiracy, (2) some demonstration of what the connections are that support this conclusion, and (3) what the root of that conspiracy is and what its aim might be. (more…)

So Inauguration Day in Washington came across as a decidedly odd, even slightly unsettling, affair: which is perhaps the only fitting end-point for what has been a decidedly odd, even slightly unsettling, presidential race.
It also seemed to affirm my fears that we’re falling deeper into a bad place.

What was most striking about the scenes is how low-key, even grim, the mood and atmosphere was, feeling slightly more like a Soviet-style event than an American presidential inauguration. Something similar was noted by Russian chess legend Garry Kasparov recently in regard to Trump’s first press event. (more…)

I feel as if we should congratulate voters in Austria for – on the balance – refusing to vote the Far-Right ‘Freedom Party’ to power.

In what was a very closely and nervously watched election in Austria yesterday, the Freedom Party candidate Norbert Hofer (who had won the first round of the election, with 35% of the vote – the party’s most successful ever result), was defeated by Left-leaning and Green-Party-backed Alexander Van der Bellen. Many, both in Austria and elsewhere in Europe, may have breathed a sigh of relief. The result, however, was very, very close, with Hofer receiving 49.7% of the vote: making it clear that the battle isn’t over and that the Freedom Party (FPÖ) is still very much in play for the coming months and years.

euro2016-violence

For weeks, outlets in France and elsewhere have been warning that there might be a terror attack during the Euro 2016 football tournament. And sure enough, it happened within just one day of the competition starting. Except no one’s calling it a terror attack.

As Europe continues to face an unprecedented refugee/migrant crisis – largely the consequence of illegal wars and disastrous foreign policies in the Middle East – there is a great deal of misinformation, propaganda and racist nonsense now circulating about the refugees, which a lot of people seem overly willing to embrace.
This misinformation war ranges from basic cultural prejudice and the usual xenophobic/tribal fear-mongering to outright lies and fakery all designed to demonise refugees and incite sectarianism and hatred within Western societies. It is unfortunate – and a sad sign of our times – that what should be a discussion about a humanitarian crisis and the appropriate response has instead become a discussion about race, religion and fear.
But in trying here to correct some of the lies about the refugee crisis, there is little choice but to also tackle the subject of what is being rather ominously called ‘the Muslim Problem’ and also the resurgence of Nazism in Europe…

Having read so much witless shit about the migrant crisis, some of the particularly ill-informed, paranoid and hate-filled comments have made me wonder if we should be sending migrant boats full of our own unwanted citizens across the Mediterranean in a sort of reverse-journey.
I don’t think I can bear to hear or read one more paranoid alcoholic blogger prattling on about the ‘conspiracy’ to ‘wipe out the white race’; it was funny at first, but we’re way passed levity by now.

“…in spite of everything, I still believe that people are really good at heart. I simply can’t build up my hopes on a foundation consisting of confusion, misery, and death. I see the world gradually being turned into a wilderness, I hear the ever approaching thunder, which will destroy us too, I can feel the sufferings of millions and yet, if I look up into the heavens, I think that it will all come right, that this cruelty too will end, and that peace and tranquility will return again.”
So wrote Anne Frank in one of the most moving passages of her diaries; a sentiment that, despite the horrific experiences she was witness to at the time, still contains that surviving trace of youthful hope and optimism for the future.

So I had been intending to publish a thoughtful reflection on the events of 2014 at the end of the year; however, once I started looking back at what had happened in the world last year, I found it so dispiriting that I couldn’t be bothered (instead I reverted to my comfort-blanket and wrote my top-ten comics pick as a guest-blogger on the excellent dejarevue site; you can check it out here).
That aside, it has been a thoroughly grim couple of weeks to start the new year; which is in keeping pretty much with most of what 2014 was like – a year that saw, among other things, war, massacres, Robin Thicke, Islamic State, Boko Haram, mounting civilian casualties, the destruction of old-world Christianity in its birth-places, Ebola, Ukraine, the War on Gaza, and the continuing polarisation of societies and communities. And Robin Williams died.
