I’m not sure what to think about this.
I haven’t paid much attention to European politics in recent years. I’m just now starting to tune back into the nationalist scene in Europe. Correct me if I am wrong, but isn’t Sebastian Kurz a center-right cuckservative? That’s my impression from what I know about him.
“Sebastian Kurz was poised to return to power in Austria on Sunday night as his party made sweeping gains in elections while the far-Right Freedom Party (FPÖ) suffered a crushing defeat.
While it fell short of an absolute majority, Mr Kurz’s conservative People’s Party (ÖVP) took a commanding first place with 37.1 per cent — a record 15 points clear of its nearest competitor.
The centre-Left Social Democrats (SPÖ), who have dominated much of postwar Austrian politics, fell to their worst ever result with just 21.7 per cent.
The Freedom Party, which had campaigned for a renewal of its coalition with Mr Kurz, saw massive losses, limping into third place with just 16.1 per cent — ten points down from two years ago.
“I’m almost speechless,” Mr Kurz told jubilant supporters. “I didn’t expect these results. We’ve had a difficult four months but the people decided to vote us in.” The center-right Austrian People’s Party appears to have won the country’s snap election on Sunday after claiming 37% of the vote, according to Politico Europe. …”
Didn’t Sebastian Kurz go after Martin Sellner and the Identitarian movement in Austria after Christchurch? I recall him condemning “rightwing fanaticism.”
