ALPIN EUROPE REFUGEES TIDE

Elections in Switzerland and Austria. Polls and protests in Germany. Central Europe marks a clear political trend.

The mass-media controlled by political correctness, insists on manipulating the Public Opinion, trying to show that in Europe the influx of pseudorefugees –only 1 in 5 are real refugees. As Daliy Mail reports- is received and even welcomed with enthusiasm by citizens of European countries. So far from reality. We have seen serious problems and massive protests in Italy, Hungary, Croatia, Slovenia, Sweden etc… The situation in Europe is very different from what the mass media presents to us. There are protests against the massive influx of immigrants all over the Continent, and of course this rejection is obviously reflected in political elections.

The first important elections held in European countries affected by this “refugees crisis” confirms a major rejection of the flood of refugees, which is also reflected in the election results: Austria and Switzerland are a good example. Polls also advertise that Germany is close to a political earthquake: the most powerful country of the EU does not accept the open- door policy of its chancellor, Angela Merkel.

Switzerland: SPV-UDC as first party.

Electoral results of the Swiss legislative elections held on October 18th, gave an historic victory for the anti-immigration nationalist party, SVP-UDC (1), that achieved 29.4% of the vote, which means it and increased its power by 11 seats, and secured 65 seats in the national chamber of Deputies. Such a number of seats no Swiss party had ever reached since proportional representation was introduced in 1919.

The key to such results was given by one of its leaders, Toni Brunner, who said in an interview to the Swiss daily Neue Zuercher Zeitung: "The federal government acts as if Switzerland has the lowest asylum policy control. People have realized that this is not true ", while criticizing the EU policy in this area; remember that Switzerland does not belong to the EU and these differences will push it further away from the ethno-suicidal Brussels.

SVP-UDC, was born in 1971 from the merger of small agricultural parties, farmers and smallholders, taking the leap between 1999 and 2006 when it gained 21% of the vote. The party jumped to the forefront of European and world press when it proposed a referendum to stop the construction of minarets in Switzerland-a democratic exercise that has not been followed any other country . That referendum was held in 2009 and its proposer SVP-UDC came out a winner with 57.5% of vote. Since then  more minarets cannnot be built on Swiss soil.

Among the elected deputies of the SVP-UDC, they are the current president of the party, Toni Brunner and Magdalene Martullo-Blocher, daughter of the historic leader and party strongman Christoph Blocher, to which the press reffered to and described as "the Swiss Marine Le Pen".

Regional elections in Austria: FPÖ breaking records

Results in Switzerland confirmed the trend of regional elections in the neighbouring alpine country, Austria. If in September 27th, FPÖ (Freiheitliche Partei Österreichs) achieved a 30% (+15% in 4 years) in Upper Austria, on October 11 it achieved 31% in the region of Vienna. Both are record high for the Austrian nationalist party.

In the "red" Vienna, FPÖ achieved 53% of working-class voters, a trend which is confirmed in Europe, where the working classes are turning their backs to a multicultural left, giving confidence to parties that face the immigration and neo-liberal globalization, as can be seen in Northen Italy with Lega Nord, or in France with Front National, the first party among the French workers. The SPÖ (Sozialdemokratische Partei Österrirechs) manages to win the elections in the Vienna region (39%), and receiving a lot of votes from "nationalized immigrants".

In a personal conversation with leaders of the FPÖ, they told me that since the election campaign this time it has been done largely as a response to the Austrian Government with its open attitude towards the "refugees"  an issue of concern rejected by much of the Austrian public.

Germany next station?

A few days after that conversation with the FPÖ´s leaders, I flew to Cologne, - Germany, with a stopover in Frankfurt. Germany reached a full "refugee crisis" as consequence of the nonsense and chaos generated by the irresponsibility of Mrs. Merkel.

The atmosphere in German cities was tense and uncertain. With the first German with which I had a conversation -an old personal friend- he informed me about the real impact of “refugees” in German cities: “there are neighborhoods and areas full of immigrants wandering in Hamburg, in the small nearby city-state Hanseatic towns the situation is similar and all this is due to an incomprehensible policy of Angela Merkel, it is assumed that the Germans have to pay all our taxes", that was his complaint. He told me that in the next election he will vote "to a new party called AfD (Alternative für Deutschland)” , despite being a traditional voter CDU. He also explained to me that there is a sociologicaly explosive situation on the issue of "refugees " which eventually explode as a big surprise in the next elections. His comments coincide with the last poll published in Germany where AfD that is opposed to the arrival of refugees- gets 8,5% from those who intend to vote.

AfD was founded in 2013 as a eurosceptical party basing itself mainly on criticism of the EU and the Euro from a liberal right perspective. In 2015, after tensions within the party, Franke Patry, representing the most right-wing nationalist sector became the new president, since the party insisted more on their positions against immigration and the Islamization of Germany. The liberal wing, led by its first president, Bernd Lucke, left the party to create a new one, Allianz für Forstchritt und Aufbruch (ALFA).

AfD has representatives in several German regional parliaments and 2 MEPs (7 before the internal division).Their main goal is to enter the German parliament, for which a minimum of 5% of votes is needed but pools give them a much larger number of votes. .

During those same days, on October 19th 20,000 people protested in Dresden against the immigration and Islamization of Germany. The demonstration was called for by PEGIDA (Patriotische Europäer Gegen die Islamiresung des Abendlandes) which celebrated its first year of existence, during which it has organized numerous protests in various German cities. PEGIDA also organized in several neighboring countries like the Netherlands while the most important protest took place in Utrecht. We must remember that in the Netherlands the PVV (Partij Voor Vrijheid), led by Greet Wilders- stands against the so called “asylum policies”, won the European elections in 2014, and current polls confirm it  as  the most popular party among Dutch people.

This information confirms that there is a truly explosive sociological situation in Germany.

The emergence and consolidation of strong anti-immigration parties in Germany, would be crucial for a global change in European policy and an important reinforcement in the resistance to Islamization all across the European continent.
