A bigger picture TD’s are keeping quiet about.

  While the usual plethora of Fine Gael, Fianna Fail and even Labour TD’s carry on their standard attacks of anything even smelling “left-wing”, the EU once again faces another nightmare from the opposite political side. While an Ireland population is deliberate attention diverted before an also possible 2018 election, the usual characters rubbishing any good ideas from elsewhere, individually and their parties are also are not informing their employers, the public, to a definite growing, serious situation.
 
The last five plus years more extreme right-wing outlook parties have gained prominence (see HERE and HERE). There has already been inner EU state elections where some of these parties have gained significant gains in terms of votes. Although coming close to it at times, alarming top EU heads, not one party so far has been major successful till now, in gaining major governorship over an EU state.  All that is likely to change now that the results of Austria’s electoral lurch to the far right has been counted in votes after the 16th of October.
 .
Via Austria, the world is about to gain its youngest government leader on the world stage. He and his party (OVP) comes forward to form a government with a Far Right party (FPO) — one that was founded by a former Nazi and that campaigned on an extreme nationalist, Eurosceptic and anti-immigration ticket. All factors along with more, that is alarming EU representatives across Europe.
  .
Initial results indicate the OVP and the FPO have attracted more than 50 per cent of Austrians who are also thinking along the same thinking as USA president Trump, ‘country first’. They have managed this like a growing number of others before them recently, by speaking of tougher policies on immigration alone.  This has had enormous appeal to voters across the political spectrum disillusioned with their individual EU states maintaining a status quo unwilling to talk or tackle such an issue with their own voters.
.
Those that are increasingly voting far right, are fearful of the future and angry that their concerns were not being listened to. They have increasingly turned to more extreme ideology parties while the now standard parties are still too busy just taking ‘shots’ at each other – while again missing a bigger picture or seeing it, not willing to address it!
   .
Much to the EU’s delight in the last few months, France’s new French President Emmanuel Macron had been becoming their youthful face of the EU’s future, but now that OVP/FPO could take that shine away ia a leader by the name of “Sebastian Kurz”, the French president and the EU now direct face a rival almost a decade younger – who’s popularity is still growing fast.
.
Once again this raises awkward questions about the whole direction of Europe that EU heads are trying desperately to avoid.
   .
In recent months, a resurgence of nationalism across the E.U. has become so string that people and parties from party mainstreams have been forced to tilt sharply to the right as well  – except in Ireland where the main parties are willing to tackle this issue with their people. Their silence is deafening as they just continue to trying to steal smaller minded, parochial thinking voters.
   .

Meanwhile, the growing number of more extreme right-wing parties are rising far stronger in formation than any of those coming from a left direction. Even in Ireland in the last year, the emergence of one, possible two, has started to set off political alarm bells amid the few that is willing to raise the bigger picture larger issue. France, Holland, Austria, Germany, Slovakia, Estonia, Bulgaria, Poland and more, have seen established extreme right-wing parties grow or more new ones form.

To quote Time Magazine in an article entitled “European Politics Are Swinging to the Right” (Sep 22, 2016):

“The nationalist government in Hungary even called a referendum on the issue for Oct. 2, and the results are practically a foregone conclusion: Hungarians are sure to reject the E.U.’s plan for refugee resettlement, further eroding the union. Even in Germany, where shame over the Nazis has long provided resistance to the pull of nationalism, the far-right Alternative for Germany party (AfD) has broken into the mainstream. In a local election in early September, the AfD got more votes than the conservative party of Chancellor Angela Merkel in her own electoral district (both finished behind the Social Democrats). In another local election, held in Berlin on Sept. 18, Merkel’s Christian Democratic Union recorded its worst result in the capital ever.”
Members of the German so-called “Reichsbürger” extremist groups are strongly suspected of having created a terrorist organization. One that is said to have procured arms and ammunition for future use. In Germany alone, in 2015, some 23,000 right-wing extremists were currently known to authorities. That number continues to grow, admits Merkel’s government. It’s important to remember that Germany is only one state of many, that is going the same possible direction.
   .
The Harvard Political Review (see HERE) has carried out serious research into what’s going on across Europe. In short, there is a far more growing, alarming, extreme right-wing ideology resurging in Europe  and now its starting to take over counties governments once again.
   .
Out of date, out of touch Irish parties are deliberate trying to cling on to their older parochial voters back home, each in turn is failing to address a bigger European picture. This is a political nightmare coming that will only continue to grow and be a further larger problem for today’s younger generation to later tackle – while elected of today, doing or saying little, will retire with their huge Dail pensions and perks. They have behind them a political mess also for their later party members to try cope with.
   .
For the present, Fine Gael, Fianna Fail, Labour and more, will stupidly instead, continue to concentrate their PR and attempts to tarnish just those of a left side.
  .
All three parties and independents willing to stand beside them, are instead continuing to ram home policies that are seeing citizens rights and finances repeatedly under attack, openly and by continuous stealth – while they, themselves gain far more in pocket annually (see HERE).
  .
There is a serious growing unrest from their actions – THIS current court case is one example of public challenging their actions. The political parties of Ireland still sowing seeds of their own demise, carry on regardless.
 .
Meanwhile, across Europe in a bigger worrying picture, the extreme right grows. As history has repeatedly shown, something everyone should be learning from, this has never ended well.
 .
The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.
