Four far-right European political parties have allied with each other, hoping to form a European Union umbrella party opposed to “Islamization” and immigration. Europeans, you see, will never give up their welfare states, so conservatives there spend much of their time bashing immigrants. Unlike America, where xenophobia is, though popular, something of a passing fancy.
In Vienna, the heads of Austria’s Freedom Party, Belgium’s Vlaams Belang, Bulgaria’s Ataka and the French National Front said the new party would be a counter-balance to other political forces in Europe.
“We say: Patriots of all the countries of Europe, unite! Because only together will we solve our problems,” Freedom Party leader Heinz-Christian Strache said.
“Irresponsible mass immigration to Europe from outside Europe due to irresponsible politicians ... is the problem,” he said.
Asked about the chances of success of the new party, French National Front leader Jean-Marie Le Pen, who was also present in Vienna, said: “It’s not necessary to hope in order to try.”
