European Voters Are Revolting; France Warns "Situation Is Grave For Europe"

Tyler Durden's picture


Just as we had warned in the run-up to the European elections - and England's UKIP victory in local elections had suggested; Anti-European-Union parties are showing strongly in this weekend's elections. Anxiety is spreading among the status quo as Greece's anti-austerity party SYRIZA wins and perhaps even more worryingly in supposed core of the union France's Nationalist party is leading in a "political earthquake" success:


Disengaged? - or totally pissed off with promises that never materialize and wealth that only trickles down to the uber-richest and uber-elitest.

No wonder France is worried...



Anti-establishment parties were gaining ground in other parts of the EU too (following UKIP's lead in the UK).

In France, exit polls setting the anti-immigrant, far right National Front up for its first success in a national election.


In Greece, exit polls had the far-left SYRIZA party leading with 26-30 per cent of the vote, ahead of the ruling conservative New Democracy Party. SYRIZA, whose leader, Alexis Tsipras, is running for European Commission president, has campaigned vociferously against the austerity that was part of the EU's response to its economic crisis.


In Austria, the right-wing FPOe came in third with 20 per cent, while the anti-immigrant Danish People's Party was set to take the biggest share of the vote in that Nordic country, according to exit polls and initial projections.


In Finland, the anti-immigrant True Finns party was projected to win two of the country's 13 seats in the European Parliament, adding one seat to its previous tally.


In Germany, the far-right National Democratic Party - which has many overtly neo-Nazi supporters - could be on course to win its first seat in the legislature, according to projections. Germany's anti-euro Alternative fuer Deutschland (AfD) is also set to make its debut in the parliament after capturing 6.5 per cent of the German vote, a public television exit poll showed.



But it's not just France, Anti-EU parties are winning across Europe...

h/t @WikiGuido



Who coulda seen that coming?


And so the propoganda begins...


Umm - yeah it did... but when it gets serious - you have to lie!!!

Agreed completely. Today my best friends politicians received a present, that is 3 blank votes. I say "thank you, morons, for destroying everyone's money" It's not even funny anymore. I say to them, fuck you big time, because you know exactly what's going on. But I also say "thank you, morons, for introducing me to ZH". Morons.

1. They are dead sexy actually.

2. They are actually trying to overthrow NATO and/or the EU, which is how the US manages its European assets.  Too many Caesars is not good for Emperor Obama.

When in doubt, blame it on the immigrants. A winning political strategy during poor harvest since forever. Go go national front, france über alles!

"Yes folks, economy is in the shitter but we have diagnosed the problem. First the good news, you - and by 'you' I mean the real French - are in no way shape or form responsible. Now the bad news, we have discovered who is responsible, and it turns out those responsible are the people who don't look like you or speak like you and the commie rats who support them. They are the leaches which have destroyed this great country! Vote National Front so we can deal with these takers! Vive la France!!"

Isn't it funny how all of these articles refer to "far-right" parties as "Neo-Nazis".  Of course, when they refer the "far-left" parties, they never use the accurate descriptive of "Neo-Communist" or "Neo-Stalinist".  The history of these barbarous ideologies is far more rife with the blood of innocents than any figure conjured up against those evil Nazis, but you never seem to glean the revulsion from the journalists that such an association deserves.


Just an observation.

Nope, never refer to the far-left as communist...EXCEPT ALL THE FUCKING TIME (ignoring that some of the parties in question are literally named 'communist' lol). Seriously wtf is wrong with some of you, do you exist in an alternate universe? Never heard of the red scare? Joseph McCarthy? Do you have functional brains??

Anyway, that aside:

Anarchism is extreme left, even comrade mccarthy and father hoover knew that.

Whats a few more million (or billion) innocent deaths to prove Marx's worth to humanity?

One could point out the absolute obvious, National Socialist Workers Party = nazis for "a thousand years" (pun intended) and it would still be equated to "the right" of Stalin and Mao's vision of utopia regardless of how many rich communists emerged from the otherside.

Its quite the relative scale (the leftwing captured, socialist state-controlled media millionaires) uses to judge humanity & ideology by, isn't it? ;-)

i could be wrong, but i think it is as simple as this: if it's relatively easy for the already rich to maintain their wealth when the authoritarians take over, it's right wing.  if it's quite hard and a lot of them die, it's left.

Stalinsists and Fascists, its still the same father, only fighting brothers bred by him.

Its what we've been sayin around here for years, while everyone argues about Keynes being either a fascist or a communist, he was a eugenicist (a racist fascist) and also an authoritarian (government intervention in free markets) a communist idea by any other description.

And everyone is completely shocked when going down that rabbit hole at the

"Isn't it funny how all of these articles refer to "far-right" parties as "Neo-Nazis".

It's just a cohencidence that it also keeps the exagerated Holohoax bullshit front and center.  There's no business like Shoah business.

One of the stock bad guys for Hollywood has long been "The Nazi".  <ominous soundtrack>   Think it was a cohencidence that Darth Vader had a helmet that was designed specifically for you to associate with the German soldier?  ...or that Peter Cushing's character was dressed like a German general?  ...or that the Imperial Storm Troopers were named 'storm troopers'?

You'll see "Nazis" trotted out on everything from Star Trek to Buffy The Vampire Slayer.

Actually it will take less.  Simply restore the rule of law and reduce government to what is abosulutely essential for the security of each nations' borders.  All else can be left to local governments that are closer to the people and so more inclined to serve rather than rule.

Not so simple when the government that should provide rule of law and be reduced to a small fraction of its current size is buying billions of rounds of ammunition and stocking up on military weapons to use against those that might object.

The rule of law is the cause of the problem. Law is the means of lending legitimacy to tyranny. By owning the politicians, you make the law. 

Eliminate law and the elites have no protection from the competition of life. They lose the means to coerce. They lose the means to tell you what to do, instead of asking you. It is law that jails the pot smoker, while Corzine runs free. 

Until you eliminate law, we wil always be slaves.
