Is Europe’s Neo-Fascism Gaining a Solid Foothold?

While the fast-unraveling European Community attempts to hang on to the “Socialist slant” of its political direction, which it dominated since Eurocom’s birth in the late 1990's, the ugly face of Neo-Fascism is making a surprising reappearance throughout such scattered Eurocom members as Germany, Austria, and Hungary, for starters.

From its post-Nazi battle cry of “never again,” a new cadre of young political leaders are leading a drive to the Right. Ostensibly motivated by the economic and geopolitical aspects of “social democracy” that have returned political leadership throughout most of Western Europe since Eurocom’s inception, a new brand of Fascism seems to have found dynamic leadership, almost simultaneously.

Although ostensibly driven by the most recent surge of Islamic refugees, and their increasing criminality throughout Central Europe as motivation, a revamped anti-populism has been a major driving force.

Most recently has been the emergence of 31 year-old Sebastian Kurz, whose center-right People’s Party, founded by Austrian ex-Nazis, has gained an overnight edge over the Austrian Social Democrats, who have been in Austria’s leadership since the end of World War II. Combined with the support of the even further right Freedom Party, Kurz will utilize the “anti-immigrant,” low-tax populism, and be tougher on crime to lead Austria’s rebirth of its 1930's Fascism.

A similar point of view is being expressed in Germany’s AFD, an alternative for the German Workers’ Party, which is even more anti-immigrant. Even more assertive than the neo-Fascism of Austria and Germany is Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban, who has totally rejected any vestige of European Socialism, with a platform that reflects a rock hard line on “immigrants, Islam, and internal security.

Although France’s Macron was the first of the young new breed to push his nation in a strong “Rightist” direction, and celebrate the populism of France’s once greatness, there seems to be a wave of “nationalism” that hasn’t been seen in Europe since the abysmal fall of Hitlerism.

But as happened in the period between the two world wars, unfettered Socialism, and open borders inviting Islamism, found excuses for their nations’ failure in the minority Jews, especially in the majority of the German people.

But with Hitler’s satanic anti-Semitism, even the most Nazism extremists, such as Austrian Nazi leader Heinz Christian Strache has not dared to play the Jewish angle. Perhaps since there are few Jews left after the Holocaust, even the worst Rights stopped utilizing this “nationalist” excuse.

In fact, Hungary’s Prime Minister Viktor Orban prides himself in his personal admiration of Israel, and has formed a friendship with its no-nonsense Prime Minister Bibi Netanyahu.

Whether neo-Fascism is the answer to Eurocom’s failure is yet to be seen. But Auratum’s dissolution in the foreseeable future looks like a sure bet.
