Dangerous Times: Crypto-Fascism in Italy, Hungary, Greece, Albania
American Thinker ^ | 03/23/2013 | James Lewis and Justine Aristea

A great sense of alarm is spreading among ordinary Europeans today, especially in the south and east of the continent. Now even the elitist media are giving us the worst international news since the Cold War.

Americans do not want to hear this, either.

Well, you may not be interested in evil, but evil may be interested in you.

Listen up. This could be important.

The Washington Post just told us that a dictatorial strongman has risen to power in Hungary, a man named Viktor Orban. In a two-hour parliamentary session, Orban forced radical changes in the Hungarian constitution to favor his own party. Orban caught the European media and political elites by complete surprise.

In Germany, Der Spiegel is finally reporting on Beppe Grillo, calling him "the most dangerous man in Europe." Grillo is the failed Italian comedian who used the web to recruit 9 million voters in the recent election, barely one percent short of Mussolini's first vote in 1922, giving him a plurality in parliament.

This week, Grillo met with Italy's President Napolitano and demanded that his Five Star Party be given ministerial control of the police and the government-owned media (RAI), the levers of big power.

Nobody knows if Grillo will get what he wants. If he ever succeeds in running the Italian federal police and media, Italy will be in very deep trouble. Maybe he won't succeed today, but he is running for the next election coming in June. Yes, June of this year.

You can believe that Grillo aims for total power. He says so himself, and his brainwashed followers believe it.

Beppe Grillo sounds like a nutcase, but he is clever as a fox. It's possible that he says crazy things on purpose to get under the media radar.
