EU Voters Steer Hard Right
• Anti-NWO European Parliament members head to Brussels with goal of tearing down EU.

Huge victories by nationalist, far-right and Euroskeptic parties in the European Union Parliament (MEP) elections have sent shock waves across Europe, raising serious questions about the future of the EU. Voting in protest over austerity, mass unemployment and illegal immigration, nationalists and populists scored unprecedented victories clinching many of the 751 seats in the EU’s Parliament across 28 nations.
France’s Marine Le Pen was a big winner with her National Front Party getting 26% of the vote. This put her in first place for the first time ever since her father, Jean-Marie Le Pen, founded the far-right party in 1972.
“The result is more than another warning; it’s a shock, an earthquake,” said French Prime Minister Manuel Valls, whose Socialist Party was bumped to third place by Ms. Le Pen’s anti-immigration, anti-euro National Front.
“The people have spoken loud and clear,” Le Pen—whose party won a whopping 24 MEP seats—told cheering supporters in Paris. “They no longer want to be led by those outside our borders, by EU commissioners and technocrats who are unelected. They want to be protected from globalization and take back the reins of their destiny. Our people demand one type of politics: politics of the French, for the French, with the French. They no longer want to be directed from outside.”
Another tremor occurred in Britain where the charismatic and outspoken Nigel Farage’s UK Independence Party steamrolled over both the Labour Party and Prime Minister David Cameron’s Conservatives, a feat never seen before in modern history.
Farage said the result really was like an earthquake because “never before in the history of British politics has a party seen to be an insurgent party ever topped the polls in a national election.”
Farage won 27% of the vote, also securing 24 MEP seats. Farage, a fierce Euroskeptic whose passionate anti-EU speeches inside the EU Parliament have gone viral on the Internet, said: “I don’t just want Britain to leave the European Union, I want Europe to leave the European Union.”
David Cameron had to concede, “People are deeply disillusioned with the European Union.”
Denmark’s anti-immigration Danish People’s Party also came in first, winning 27% of the vote and four MEPs.
Austria’s far-right fiercely anti-Muslim immigration party got 20% of the vote and doubled its MEPs from two to four.
Geert Wilder’s Party for Freedom in Holland, also fiercely anti-Islamic, got 15% and maintained its four seats.
Hungary’s Jobbik Party, often referred to as neo-Nazi, racist and “anti-Semitic,” got 15% and three seats.
Finland and Italy also did well and even Germany’s National Democratic Party, which openly supports National Socialism, clinched a seat.
Greece’s nationalist Golden Dawn (GD) party, also referred to as neo-Nazi by the mainstream media, gained 10% of the vote and won three seats for the first time, securing its place as Greece’s third most popular party. Two of the seats were won by retired generals, who have held senior positions in the Greek military and at the North Atlantic Treaty Organization’s Central Command. This came a week after municipal elections in Greece saw GD rise to a solid third place despite a brutal crackdown by the Greek government. Nearly half of GD’s members in the Greek Parliament, including GD leader Nick Michaloliakos, have been illegally kept behind bars on trumped-up charges since October 2013.
Of all European nationalist parties in Europe, GD poses the greatest threat to global Zionism. It is no secret that American Jewish Committee Chairman David Harris has been the driving force behind GD’s persecution.
The huge nationalist victory in Europe’s elections has raised much concern in the Zionist establishment. Zionists have been trying desperately to portray the rise of nationalism as neo-Nazism, which, they say, must “never again” be allowed to flourish.
The head of the central board of Greek Jewish Communities, Benjamin Albalas, told The Jerusalem Post after the elections: “A great number of European citizens seem to have forgotten what happened during the Holocaust and World War II. Racism and anti-Semitism are again hitting Europe. It is time for immediate action.”
The Anti-Defamation League’s global anti-Semitism survey in May reported that Greece was the most anti-Semitic country in Europe.
In order to maximize their influence, the various right-wing parties are in the process of forming coalitions, but their backgrounds and causes are very different. Although most agree on Euroskepicism, they are sometimes very far apart on other important issues.
Nigel Farage, for instance, will not form an alliance with Ms. LePen, because he sees the National Front’s anti-immigration stance as “racist” and “too far right.”
Ms. LePen wants nothing to do with GD, because she thinks they are “Nazis,” “Holocaust deniers” and “too far right.”
As it stands, Ms. Le Pen seems poised to form the best middle of the road coalition with five parties already agreed.
