The steady rise of powerful RW fascists/Autocrats/Nationalists/TOC world wide are challenging the peaceful World Order of Western Liberal Democracy post WII.
Today the rise of the far right Nationalists (TOC) in Europe led by Putin, Xi, Bannon, Trump, Orban, LePen, Silveri, etc urge a return to the nationstate (Nationalism), promote illiberalism & thus threaten democracy world wide.
Angela Merkel says the postwar world order is over and calls for Europe to stand up to China, Russia, and the US
EU rebuilt itself after WWII, but Europe's reconstruction has proven far from indestructible & Western Liberal Democracy is now being challenged as a result destabilization efforts led by the global rise of the Right Wing (RW) strongmen/Transnational Organized Criminals (TOC)
For example: The Brexit vote shook the foundations of the European Union.

📌Trump credits himself as “Mr. Brexit.”
📌Nigel Farage's trips to the U.S. to meet Trump and address the RNC were funded by Aaron Banks who bankrolled a Brexit campaign and is under investigation amid claims some of his money may have come from Russia.
And a staggering number of far right voters in France were ready to embrace far R hate mongerer Le Pen, prior to the election of Macron & defeat of Putin’s darling LePen.

Russia's support for Europe's far right shores up Vladimir Putin's support at home.
Le Pen repeated her support for Moscow's annexation of Crimea, and her opposition to the sanctions subsequently imposed by the EU. If elected to the Elysee Palace, she pledged: "I would envisage lifting the sanctions quite quickly."
📌Russia & TeamTrump’s involvement in #MacronLeaks. #Posobiecc #WikiLeaks

📌The 2017 Macron e-mail leaks were leaks of more than 20,000 e-mails related to the campaign of Emmanuel Macron during the 2017 French presidential elections, two days before the final vote.
📌France's Marine Le Pen seen in Trump Tower

📌The National Front leader has called Mr Trump's election "an additional stone in the building of a new world".
📌Le Pen's secret Frexit plan: if Le Pen’s Rassemblement national (RN) “forms an alliance with other viscerally anti-EU nationalists, their only project will be to block the European project,”

📌The bloc’s nationalists (Le Pen’s Rassemblement national (RN) ha) ve a “great deal of sympathy for Vladimir Putin’s Russia.”

📌Hundreds of social media accts linked to Russia have sought to amplify the street protests that have rocked France.

📌The network of accts has circulated messages on Twitter that focus on the violence and chaos of the yellow vest or gilet jaune riots.
📌Le Pen’s financially bankrupt party was charged for misappropriation of EU funds. Its legacy of racism & anti-Semitism was so pungent that Le Pen changed the party’s name from Front National to “Rassemblement National”, aka RN, or National Rally.
📌Why Trump and Hungary’s authoritarian leader PM Viktor Orban are soulmates

📌Trump told Orban “it’s like we’re twins.”
📌Viktor Orbán’s War on Intellect & Liberalism.

As the Hungarian prime minister systematically undermined his own country’s education system, one institution stood defiant: a university in the heart of Budapest, founded by George Soros.
📌Orban has drastically altered democratic institutions and norms in Hungary since winning back the prime minister's job in 2010. He first served from 1998 to 2002.
📌Bannon, plans to work with Orban in the run-up to European Parliament elections next year.

📌Bannon has set up a movement to elect right-wing nationalist and populist members in European Parliament elections in May.
Strache is Austria's vice-chancellor, his party is propping up Austria's RW conservative gov’t.

The SZ & der Spiegel have received secretly filmed video material which shows Strache talking abt being willing to accept questionable donations from Russia.
‘Complete shock’: AU’s PM holds onto power, defying election predictions

The center-R AU PM Scott Morrison held onto power after a surprise surge in national elections that left some pundits making comparisons to Trump’s poll-defying win in 2016 & Brexit
📌What Is Fascism? What to Know About Its Brutal Origins

📌Fascism is a movement founded by Mussolini that promotes the idea of a forcibly monolithic, regimented nation under the control of an autocratic ruler
“Mussolini thought that democracy was a failed system. He thought that liberty of expression and liberty of parties was a sham, and that fascism would organize people under a nationstate power,”

📌Sound familiar?
📌The corollary of that belief was the idea that anything that might impede national unity had to be gotten rid of, and violently. In fact, violence was seen as beneficial to society.⚠️😱⚠️
⚠️Mussolini, Hitler & Franco had very specific ideas about who got to be part of the nation.

⚠️It followed that ”OTHERS” who did not fit the homogenic mold were seen as disruptive to that unity, and thus subject to violence.😱
⚠️The Grave Threats of White Supremacy and Far-Right Extremism
⚠️Few in Europe/US today seem to remember the horrific consequences of systematic dehumanization of one racial or religious group in a society.

⚠️Prior to WWII the RW Fascists/Nationalists targeted & dehumanized European Jews and they were later slaughtered.
⚠️Today the RW extremists are actively targeting, demonizing & dehumanizing immigrants, Jews & now Catholics

⚠️Dehumanization leads to atrocities against humanity. #BabiesInCages

Roman Catholics And Evangelicals Move Apart In Their Political Priorities An epic battle is brewing as to which Christian religion will reign supreme & most powerful.

RW/Authoritarians/TOC support Evangelicals vs Pope supports Western Liberal Democracy.
⚠️European history has seemingly vanished from modern memory, and it no longer seems cray to wonder in its absence, if atrocities will occur again if Western Liberal Democracy fails to defeat the rise of the RW fascists/Autocrats/TOC
