Norbert Hofer is sporting the cheeky shit-eating grin:
“Polls show that Norbert Hofer, a far-right Austrian politician who once declared that “Islam has no place in Austria,” is within a hair’s breadth of winning the country’s presidential election on Sunday. As fear rises among many Austrians, a video made by Hofer’s opponent, the Green Party’s Alexander Van der Bellen, has gone viral — getting more than 3 million views on Facebook in under a week.
It’s a simple video. In it, an 89-year-old woman, identified only as Gertrude, talks in front of the camera about how Hofer’s rise reminds her of the rise of the Nazis in her youth.
“This is probably going to be my last election,” Gertrude says. “It’s not the first time something like this has happened … I am afraid of that. …”
I like him already.
Hofer could be our beachhead in Europe. He wants to keep the Muslims out of Österreich. Meanwhile, Granny Gertrude here sounds like a fossil out of the Middle Ages. The world moves on. History moves on. Austria has to move into the future.
Merkel and her ilk are the past. Obama will also be gone next year. All this crying and being cucked and walking around on eggshells is really tiresome. It is 2016.
