Vienna’s Phoney ‘Conservatives’ Urge Vote For Far-Left!
.Like populist parties elsewhere in Europe, the FPÖ is currently leading national polls…opinon polls suggest the outcome of the re-run is too close to call. http://www.thelocal.at/20161119/conservative-shun-far-right-hofer
So faced with a choice between the unabashedly patriotic Herr Hofer of the Freedom Party (FPO) and the far-left Van Bellen…
….a pro-Brussels ‘green fascist’ – as Hofer accurately described his intolerant opponent – one might expect everyone not addicted to the multicult authoritarianism of the EUSSR to get behind Hofer.
Not least anyone even vaguely atyled ‘conservative.’
…senior conservatives including former EU agriculture commissioner Franz Fischler and ex-vice chancellor Wilhelm Molterer, both from the People’s Party (ÖVP)…
- …have thrown their weight behind Van Bellen – “We do not want to be faced with speculation about Austria leaving the European Union..”
But in fact Hofer has not said he’ll try to lead Austria out of the European Union.
All he’s said is that he might seek to put that issue to a referendum. So these old-guard ogres are growling grimly at the mere prospect of democratic consultation!
Conservative can mean many things, but in most political contexts, we expect those who call themselves conservative to be committed to –
A patriotism and
B traditional values.
Van Bellen is almost oblivious to both A and B, so what kind of ‘conservatives’ rally to his red/green banner?
Unfortunately, we have seen this before.
Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum, the ancien regime, uniting to obstruct the advance of ‘populists’ – aka national liberation.
In France, the reds and greens and all sorts are busily organising to get a collaborationist ‘conservative’ chosen as the ‘centre-right’s’ presidential candidate, in hopes of fending off Marine Le Pen’s rising challenge.
Conservative voters, whatever way they voted before, should wake up to this desperate strategy by the Enemy Within to cling at all costs to power
HOFER’S THE MAN!
