very true... European “conservatives” also tend to resemble what we’d label democrats. The so-called “far-right” in Europe, are often bands of thuggish “nationalists” who are extremely anti-capitalist. Somehow the idea that “patriotic aka nationalistic” has stuck as a catch all for right wing. Probably because the Marxists were “internationalists.” It’s unfortunate, because I wouldn’t throw groups who are protecting their countries own national interests in with the nut jobs, but so we have it.... if you aren’t multi-culti you’re a fascist. (sarcasm)
European politics and American politics can’t be compared. It’s apples and oranges.
