Hitler's hometown revokes honour Vienna to honour WWII deserters Austria still haunted by Nazi past Protesters in Austria marking Holocaust Remembrance Day have condemned organisers of a ball which was expected to be attended by far-right leaders.

Greens' Party head Eva Glavischnig said guests at Vienna's WKR event would be "dancing on the graves of Auschwitz" - a reference to the Nazi death camp.

But the organisers rejected the accusations, saying the ball was always held on the last Friday in January.

French National Front leader Marine Le Pen was to be among the guests.

MARINE LE PEN ATTENDS NEO-NAZI BALL ON HOLOCAUST MEMORIAL DAY

This confirms what I have been telling you all along about MLP. She is no kind of conservative, but a neo-Nazi anti-Semitic neo-Fascist. She has connection with all the extremist and skinhead groups in Europe.

MLP is her father in drag, and far more dangerous.

To his credit, Ron Paul won’t be going because he knows the Holocaust is a myth.

Thanks Cincinna.

It is very important! MLP is running in the presidential election in France, and many have been misled or are naive or deluded about her the nature of her ideology, associations, and past- anti-Semitism, flirtation the the extreme Neo-Nazi, neo- fascist , and skinhead far far right in Europe.

What is this, the “Ball” police state? Just recently they “caught” Paula Deen eating a cheeseburger. The “Ball” falls on a certain night. Get over it.

Actually, all I needed to have read was: “Greens’ Party head Eva Glavischnig” to see who the kooks are here.

“This is the last year it took place at the Hofburg palace: under pressure from unions and the left, its management has terminated the contract for the event.”

Since when should I care what the left thinks?

From what I've been reading about her, she's opposed to continued Muslim immigration into France. Haven't seen any explicitly anti-Jewish statements. Do you have any quotes from her?

Please explain how le Pen would be worse for Jews than the Muslim-accommodating "mainstream" politicians? The end result of the current mainstream politicians will be an Islamized and thus virulently anti-Jewish Europe within ten years at most.

They just assert that people who attend are “far-right,” then equate them to Hitler.

Sounds like typical leftard craparillo to me.

If they don’t expel the mooselimbs, at any cost in lives and treasure, France will very soon cease to be.

This confirms nothing other than in the fevered minds of French leftists and those who either agree with them or are gullible enough to swallow their codswallop.

WHO IS MARION LE PEN aka MARINE LE PEN?

Marine le Pen is the protégé and daughter of Holocoast denier,  anti-Semite (as in Jew hater), and an outspoken hater of Israel, Jean-Marie le Pen. His daughter Marion aka Marine le Pen has refused to distance herself from those views. The National Front Party (FN) is anti-American, anti-free enterprise, anti-capitalist, etc
  MLP has  aligned herself with the anti-American, anti-capitalists and Statists, the closest thing to Fascism we’ve seen. She is far more dangerous than her father ever was, and a much smarter, shrewder politician.
The merger of far right nationalism and the leftist anti-capitalist, (anti-liberale),  economic agenda is called Fascism. A term the French are uncomfortable with and are afraid to use when describing MLP & her movement. 

MLP is not any kind of Conservative, Far Right, Right, or otherwise . American Conservatism is a political philosophy based upon the God-given rights of the individual as expressed in the Declaration of Independence & the Constitution, and free market Capitalist principles. 
 MLP is a Statist which is the total opposite of Conservative. MLP believes in the power of the State over individual rights & Liberty, government control & has no problem with the soft tyranny of authoritarian government.    In the past, the Communists & many others on the Far Left have voted FN. 
  The anti-European, anti-globalization message of MLP is shared by many on the Far Left. They might see that as a greater evil than creeping fascism, which they have never had a problem with in the past. 

 MLP has nothing in common with Ron Paul, who has many conservative values, but is really a Libertarian.   
  Ron Paul’s issues are mainly economic, fiscal, and the preservation of individual rights against the increasingly invasive,  encroaching tyranny of the Federal government. 

  MLP, Socialists, Communists, Greens & every shade of red, are Statists who believe in the power of the State over the individual rights set forth in our Founding Documents, The US Constitution and The Declaration of Independence. 
  Tocqueville himself warned against this possibility of what he called “soft tyranny”. Americans listened up. Apparently even the French ignored him warnings.

Please don't mistake this as any sort of endorsement of the National Front (several themes of European populism are of serious concern to me) but I do think reading this article is a good idea. It may be a good example of how conservative third-parties, even in a European system, can have the effect of throwing elections to liberals and socialists in the short term.

(And yes, Cincinna, I understand that the National Front is not conservative in an American sense, but rather a populist party, and arguably a Fascist party in the Mussolini model rather than explicitly following the German model. My point is not to defend the National Front, but rather that Americans who think the solution is to create a third party to the right of the Republican Party need to think about the consequences.)

France’s Turn for the Worse... Europe’s far right has already won

The French political system is too different from ours for close parallels, but it is clear that the American populism represented by today's Tea Party and the earlier Reagan Revolution is similar to though not a direct part of a broader Western movement of reaction against liberalism in “mainstream” politics. Our American tradition is very different from that of Europe — and I would say that is a good thing — but grassroots people in both Europe and the United States are realizing that the liberal assumptions which have infected both “conservative” and “liberal” parties are causing major damage and need to be challenged.

The big problem is that returning to the “old ways” in Europe too often means returning to a xenophobic nationalism based on ethnicity and not on ideology. America is a nation of immigrants drawn to an ideal of freedom; that is not necessarily the older heritage for large parts of Europe.
