Those of us who want to stop the Islamization of the West, or even slow it down just a bit, are considered right-wing extremists, bigots, and racists. That’s routine; we’re used to it. This blog is known in some of the moonbattier districts of the web as “Gates of Hate”.
But if the mainstream, reasonable, middle-of-the-road, reality-based community doesn’t take cognizance of what ordinary people feel about the spread of Islam in their countries, they’ll find out what real extremism, bigotry, and racism are all about.
Take Saxony, for example. Saxony used to be part of the DDR when the Iron Curtain was still in place, and political diversity was suppressed back then. Nowadays people can choose their political parties, and their choices aren’t always what the rest of us would like.
According to Der Spiegel:
Social Democrats Behind Neo-Nazis in Saxony Survey
According to a voter survey in the eastern German state of Saxony, 9 percent of the population supports the neo-Nazi NPD with just 8 percent in favor of the Social Democrats. The NPD says it’s because the far-right party isn’t racist.
That Germany’s Social Democrats (SPD) are in free fall is nothing new. The center-left party, despite being Angela Merkel’s coalition partner in Berlin, is overshadowed by the popularity of the chancellor. SPD leader Kurt Beck is unpopular and has a hard time even keeping his own party in line. And party membership is lower than it has been in half a century.
But on Thursday, the party hit a new low. A survey in the eastern German state of Saxony shows that, were voters to head to the polls on Sunday, more people in the state would mark the box next to the neo-Nazi party National Democratic Party (NPD) than would vote for the center-left SPD. The poll, carried out by Forsa, has 9 percent of those surveyed supporting the NPD with just 8 percent for the SPD.

The NPD celebrated the result in a press release, calling the numbers “really sensational.” The poll comes just three weeks after Saxony was in the news after a xenophobic mob chased eight Indians through the town of Mügeln shouting “Foreigners Out!” before beating them up. The NPD on Thursday said the most recent poll is a result of the fact “that we didn’t join the media-driven witch hunt against our own countrymen as happened in Mügeln.” The press release also said the coverage of the Mügeln attack was “racist” and ended with the words: “Don’t worry, the next elections are coming for sure.”
The NPD — Nationaldemokratische Partei Deutschlands — is obviously a nationalist party. But to be a truly resurrected Nazi Party, it would have to be Socialist as well.
Readers who know German may want to browse through the NPD website and see what they think. Are these folks much the same as the Social Democrats, except that they want to expel the Jews and the Turks? Do they want a total welfare state, but only for real Germans?
I’d be interested to find out whether unabashed National Socialism is making a comeback.
The first time was tragedy. Do we get farce this time?
