Austria’s Freedom Party Signs Pact with Putin’s United Russia

Needless to say, we are pleased by this:

“BERLIN — The leader of the Austrian far-right Freedom Party has signed what he called a cooperation agreement with Russia’s ruling party and recently met with Lt. Gen. Michael T. Flynn, the designated national security adviser to President-elect Donald J. Trump of the United States.

Word of the agreement with Russia was the latest sign that the Kremlin is forging bonds with political parties across Europe in what some European leaders suspect is a coordinated attempt to meddle in their affairs and potentially weaken Western democracies. Many of these efforts are murky and involve obscure groups, and it is unclear whether President Vladimir V. Putin of Russia has any direct involvement.

The Freedom Party leader, Heinz-Christian Strache, reported the signing of the agreement with United Russia, Mr. Putin’s party, on Monday on his Facebook page, where he also disclosed that he had visited General Flynn a few weeks ago in Trump Tower in New York. …”

Pyotr Tolstoy, deputy speaker of the Duma, or lower house of Russian Parliament, said there was a need for open dialogue to improve ties with parties across Europe, United Russia reported from the signing of the agreement. This was especially important, Mr. Tolstoy was quoted as saying, “in today’s politically correct world, when everyone is hiding their real thoughts and feelings.”

Jamelle Bouie is crying about it over at Slate. Lawrence had a panel on his MSNBC show tonight wailing about the New Axis which is taking shape.

The Alt-Right is post-liberal. It envisions a world order in which all European nations are finally at peace. Ultimately, the ties that really matter are racial and cultural. We don’t want any further disastrous wars like we had in the 19th and 20th centuries. Unlike the American liberals, we only seek peace and friendship with Russia.

Angela Merkel is the real enemy in Europe. We don’t consider the German people our enemy though. Merkel is our enemy because she is the enemy of the German people – a Volksverräter. Merkel’s government is a tyranny that oppresses German nationalists and patriots. She demonizes the German people, denigrates and dismantles their culture, and supports their replacement through Third World immigration.

The Alt-Right has two major foreign policy goals:

1.) The liberation of Western Europe which involves taking down the existing liberal order by bringing to power populist nationalist parties across the Continent.

2.) We want these populist nationalist parties to act to secure the future of the Europe whether it is through ending refugee resettlement, deporting immigrants, dismantling political correctness, ending multiculturalism, ending mass immigration or building border walls, which countries like Hungary have already done.

This is a great war against liberalism to secure the Occident – the traditional living space of people of European ancestry all over the world – in the 21st century. We are defending our common civilization from an internal and external existential threat. That’s what connects the Trump Wall with Mexico to overtures to Russia.

This isn’t remotely the same thing as 19th century European imperialism (dominating the non-Occidental world) or 20th century fascism (a period of extreme strife between European nations). The correct historical parallels are responding to the common threat posed by the Mongols, the Turks or the Caliphate while simultaneously having to deal with a great spiritual and cultural crisis that is internal to Christendom.

So far, there is a lot to be optimistic about on the foreign policy front.

Update: Check out this post on the Alt-Right over at Katheon:

“If you look at the mainstream conservatives – where they are coming from?

They talk about themselves and the conception of the United States as a fundamentally liberal order. Mainstream conservatives defined themselves in many ways in terms of professor Dugin’s Fourth Political Theory – they define themselves as hyper-liberals. They are saying that they must be hyper-liberal to protect the world from fascism, communism and other illiberal threats. Therefore, mainstream conservatism in its essence really was a global religion.

To continue in this framework, I think that the alt-right is a kind of Fourth Political Theory. We definitively have roots and things like the European New Rights like Alain de Benois and we can have a movement that is powerful, that has headlines, that drives liberals crazy, but we don’t quite know, where we are going to be in the future. …”

At the National Review, mainstream conservatism was defined this afternoon as “true equality” and the principles of the Declaration of Independence:

“In the extreme, this can lead to “white nationalism,” as was recently expressed by Emily Youcis, a.k.a. “Pistachio Girl,” a peanut and pistachio salesperson at Philadelphia’s Citizens Bank Stadium, who was fired after she took her white nationalism to the airwaves. The Republican party is the party of Lincoln; it’s the anti-slavery party. It’s the party of equal rights no matter your ethnicity, gender, or other category; it isn’t exclusionary, as Pistachio Girl seems to think it should be. …

Trump, and Republican leaders in general, need to remind everyone that the GOP is fighting for American fairness, for blind justice, for true equality. The real America isn’t found in some geographic locale far from America’s cities — it’s found in the essence of the Declaration of Independence and in the body of the U.S. Constitution and in the hearts and minds of anyone who understands and cherishes the freedom and prosperity, the American Dream, that this equality has unleashed. Republicans are for everyone equally; what Republicans are defending is a culture of freedom as outlined in documents such as the U.S. Bill of Rights, not some bygone black-and-white television depiction of America.”

The True Conservatism that the GOP is fighting for is “transgender rights”:

“He’s absolutely right, and I think it’s worth offering a conservative defense of transgender rights — which ought to be a conservative issue.”

Clearly, there is a major difference in our outlook and worldview – True Conservatives are “hyper-liberal” whereas there is nothing really liberal about us at all.

Update: The Huffington Post is on to us:

“At risk of appearing to be a conspiracy theorist myself, I think we are seeing an effort to build an international coalition of like-minded anti-Muslim, anti-immigration ethnic nationalists who can be depended upon to undermine the liberal democratic order of the West, in particular its international norms regarding peace and security, its trade and investment rules, and its human rights standards,” Serwer said. “Candidates for inclusion in this coalition include President Putin, Prime Minister Netanyahu, President Sisi, Marine Le Pen and Germany’s Alternative fur Deutschland. I’m sure more will appear on the horizon.”

The liberal democratic order of the West has become cancerous. It is hostile to the survival and flourishing of the people of the West. That’s why it has to be excised.

Serwer forgot to mention Rodrigo Duterte of the Philippines:

“President Rodrigo Duterte of the Philippines, overseer of a contentious and bloody crackdown on drug dealers and users, boasted on Monday about having personally killed criminal suspects when he was mayor of Davao City.

“In Davao, I used to do it personally — just to show to the guys that if I can do it, why can’t you?” Mr. Duterte told business leaders at a meeting in Manila, explaining how he goaded police officers to gun down suspects.

“And I’d go around in Davao with a motorcycle, with a big bike around, and I would just patrol the streets, looking for trouble also,” he said, according to The Manila Times. “I was really looking for a confrontation, so I could kill.” …”

Duterte is one of the Alt-Right’s favorite foreign leaders:
