Spainís Socialists take hit in Andalusia vote as 'far right' wins seats
Politico EU ^ | 12/3/18 | Diego Torres

MADRID — Spanish Prime Minister Pedro Sánchez’s Socialist Party took a beating Sunday in an election in Andalusia that saw the far right win seats in one of the country’s regional parliaments for the first time in decades.

The Socialists (PSOE) — which have ruled the southern region uninterrupted for 36 years — came in first but could lose their grip on power if parties on the right team up against them.

Juanma Moreno — the local leader of the Popular Party — said as the results came in that he would try to replace the Socialists’ incumbent regional leader, Susana Díaz, which would require parliamentary support from Ciudadanos and the far-right Vox.

“We know today that Andalusia has voted for change and therefore it will have change,” Moreno told reporters. “Forty years of Socialist hegemony in Andalusia has ended tonight.”

Far right = anyone who doesn’t believe in socialism.

Those that are unwilling to join the workforce shouldn't receive taxpayer-funded handouts. Work requirements ensure that only those who truly need government assistance receive it.

The swing of the political pendulum continues its reversal.

After decades of never ending small victories in the West the Left is seeing defeat after defeat.

We can expect the Left to become more and more violent as they see defeat snatched from the jaws of victory (theirs).

The Left has stormed a beach too far in trying to force a cultural suicide on the Western democracies by flooding the West with Muslim immigrants who have no desire to become part of the culture in to which they are immigrating. These ‘refugees’ bring with them a violent culture that has no respect for the rights of non-Muslims and a desire to force Muslim culture on their host.

No self-respecting nation is going to put up with that no matter how indoctrinated in political correctness.

Eventually even the French will rebel.

My handy-dandy Newspeak media translation guide for political ideology labels:

Media labels vs. Reality:
Blue = Red
Socialist/Left-wing = Stalinist
Liberal = Marxist
Moderate/(Centrist) = Socialist
Conservative = Liberal
Far-Right = Moderate
Ultraright/Racist/Bigot = Conservative Mainstream

*far right* in media speak is at least moderate.
