It appears that the EU is allowing another repulsively outspoken member of the Front National, Le Pen's horrid party, into their parliament. From Israel National News
(IsraelNN.com) Israel is worried over the formation of a new far-right political group in the European Union (EU) parliament, the Foreign Ministry said Thursday. The party, named Identity, Tradition and Sovereignty, is "based on xenophobia and anti-Semitism and whose future chairman awaits verdict in France for his scandalous remarks questioning the existence of the Nazi gas chambers, the Ministry added.
The chairman of the group is Bruno Gollnisch, a member of the right wing French Nationalist Front party.
Gollnisch's acceptance by the EU puts the lie to the whole notion that "far-right" politicians get a negative reception by the left, probably because in truth, they are "left-wing" themselves. Who says that "right-wingers" have always been considered taboo amongst "leftists" in Europe?
