The European Tea Party


Around the world, conservatives are rising up. Their leftist counterparts are sore afraid. Der Spiegel reports:
The successes of right-wing populists could indeed exacerbate the smoldering euro crisis. Tensions between the wealthy countries in the north, who are contributing most to the bailouts, and the ailing debtor nations in the periphery already threaten to destroy the monetary union. If a European version of the American Tea Party movement develops, it could very well become the kiss of death for the euro.
The German publication describes European conservatives as divisive, dangerous, selfish, racist, suspicious, xenophobic simpletons who hate women.

Why does that description sound so familiar?

Do the Euro conservatives have an online presence? They must. We should get in touch and offer our support, share our experience with the press, unions, other assorted lefties, etc., so they don't get discouraged by the Alinsky attacks and give up.

That's a good idea, Fuzzy. I'll be sure to look out for EuroCons on the web.

I've been looking for them. England has a bunch, and a few Eastern Europeans have been good. Unfortunately most of western Europe seems to be a dead zone.

There is hope yet. Even Sweden is taking steps away from the socialist model. Albeit very tiny baby steps, they are steps nonetheless.
