There Is No Right-Left Divide in Europe

Posted on the 13 February 2015 by Calvinthedog

The real divide is between nationalists (anti-EU, anti-NATO, anti-austerity, anti-corporate, anti-rich, and opposition to being colonized by the US and the banksters) and internationalists (EU, NATO, neoliberalism, austerity, pro-corporate, pro-rich, continuation of being colonies of the US and the banksters).

Most of the standard European rightwing and centrist parties are internationalists, as are almost of all the traditional European left and social democratic parties. There is not a Hell of a lot of difference between the Tories, Labour, Spain’s Conservative Party, Hollande’s Socialist Party, and Merkel’s Christian Democrats. There is no real European Left anymore as the Old Left is dead.

So you can see that the traditional European Left, Centrist and Right parties have all converged around EU-NATO pro-corporate, pro-oligarch, pro-austerity neoliberalism. For the life of me, I have a hard to time telling the difference France’s “Socialists” and Spain’s “Conservatives.” To me they’re all the same. Can someone clue me on the differences between the traditional European Right, Left and Center parties. They all seem to be saying the same thing.

I am absolutely with the nationalists here. Putin,  Marie LePen’s National Front in France,  Orban’s Conservative Party in Hungary, UKIP, the Greek Independent Party, and the government of Cyprus. All of these are considered to be rightwing nationalist movements, leaders or governments. I am down with all of them.

I also support the Russian and Ukrainian Communist Parties and Syriza in Greece. All of these are on the Left.

Eurasianism and BRICS are excellent antidotes for NATO-EU poison.

Even though I am supposedly a Leftist, I would support a lot of European rightwing parties. I suppose I am more of a nationalist and an anti-internationalist than anything else. I will make alliance with most rightwing nationalist movements against the EU-NATO crowd, whether they are right, left or center.
