Right-wing Europeans

Europe’s right-wing scene–including its FAR right-wing scene–is undergoing some interesting changes and some new popularity. The anti-semite (that is, the anti-Jewish) parties are finding favor with Muslims! Other groups are building on the public’s unease with the Islamisation of their countries by appeals to traditional European culture. There are also some new anti-immigration, anti-Islamic parties grounded in libertarianism that are becoming more and more prominent. See this article, Islam and the Evolution of Europe’s Far Right.

    I always found it curious that Arabs would be considere anti semetic, As they themselves are semites. Anti Jewish I understand, but Jews are not the only semites. The Palestenians themselves stem from semetic tribes.

  • Along the lines of what Bror says, it’s interesting that those related to Jacob through Abraham call the Jews the “brothers of apes and pigs.” Would seem to be a little bit self-defeating for a son of Ishmael to do that.

    And I really wish that they’d stop calling bigots “conservative” or “right wing”. Yeesh. Have they ever heard of a dictionary?

  • Excuse me; SOME OF THOSE, not all, descended from Ishmael do that.

    I would have thought someone who wrote the excellent _Modern Fascism_ would have referred to them as the far left, not the far right. These aren’t exactly distributist monarchists.

    As Bridgette Bardot found out, Europe does not have free speech. She was convicted of speaking out against Islam. This is essential to facism.
