One of the beneficial side-effects of the last few weeks has been the emergence of The Transatlantic Conservative, a new US-based Counterjihad blog with a focus on European issues.
We’ve talked a lot here recently about the imaginary neo-Nazis hiding under the beds of various European anti-immigration parties. In today’s post, TC takes a look at the real neo-Nazis:
Ghosts of the Past
Just found this on the website of Germany’s CNN daughter “ntv”.
The question of this poll was: Are you for or against the interdiction of the NPD (openly anti-Semitic neo Nazi party)? As of my reading the results were: 56% of readers in favor of and 44% against an interdiction of this party. That kind of result would have been unthinkable only 4 or 5 years ago.
And believe me, this nazi friendly result has nothing to do with a concern for free speech. In my mind, these numbers are clearly a result of the appeasement politics of the German government, media and academia towards the islamization of Western Europe and a people feeling betrayed. So in a country that elected a center-left government, the majority of the people favor a neo Nazi party? Scary stuff! In my mind this is the result of the fact, that any individual or group in Europe that speaks out openly against islamization, is being branded as a racist. Any voice against Islam in Europe gets criminalized. You literally go to jail for criticizing the building of a mosque or madrassa or an honor killing. That is the direction in which the unelected EU government is taking Europe.

Once again the lessons of history are being lost in the collective brain-fog brought on by the nepenthe of political correctness.
The elite movers and shakers in Europe have effectively forbidden nationalism, love of country, traditional culture, and all the other values that act as the glue to hold societies together.
But these characteristics will not be denied expression. If they are prohibited from proceeding through lawful and legitimate means, they will emerge through illegal and illiberal ones.
Then we will see the rough beast begin its slouch towards Bethlehem…
