Nazi sympathiser gains Senate seat (english)

Nazi sympathiser gains Senate seat
Expatica News, 17 June 2003

BRUSSELS -- The far-right National Front Party (FN) has appointed known Nazi sympathiser Michel Delacroix as its co-opted Senator. And the Senate will be powerless to refuse a seat to a man branded an "enemy to democracy".

Delacroix, a lawyer defending FN President Daniel Feret on charges of racism, was condemned to one year in prison in 1994 for ownership of unlicensed weapons. Delacroix's home had been raided at the time, revealing an arsenal of weapons as well as documents proving his extremist tendencies and nazi sympathies.

Branding Delacroix an "enemy to democracy", the Walloon Christian Democrat Party (CDH) called upon all other political parties to reject the FN's submission when the matter is voted upon Thursday. The Walloon Liberal party (MR) admitted that the selection of Delacroix was as a result of mathematical calculations of votes following the 18 May elections.

Rejecting Delacroix therefore would be an illegal act -- one which the Liberal, Socialist and Green parties have refused to bend to. "We will fight right wing extremists -- but not through illegality," the Socialist party announced Monday.

Belgium saw a tremendous rise in support for far right wing groups on both sides of the linguistic divide during the general elections. The National Front (FN) in Wallonia and Vlaams Blok in Flanders increased their scores to record proportions, with the Vlaams Blok becoming the number one party in the Flemish city of Antwerp.

Europe is Waking UP! (english)
21 Jun 2003
This is great news! Europe is waking up, hopefully in time to turn back the tide of non-European immigrants who are trying to flood into Europe and parasite off of them and spread their dirty DNA into the European gene pool.

BNP in Britain, NPD in Germany, Front Nationale in France, Vlaams Blok in Belgium, and RNU in Russia -- here we go!

wrong europe is asleep (english)
22 Jun 2003
Wrong europe is asleep, they don't remember the nazi's like they used to, but they will. Once the nazi's take power in any of these countries, all these countries will wake up and it will be all over for them again. Nazism will always lose because nazism is irrational.
