FTR #196 Update on Euro-Fascism

Lis­ten: One seg­ment

The inclu­sion of Aus­tri­an fas­cist Jörg Haider in an Aus­tri­an coali­tion gov­ern­ment has focused atten­tion on the growth of fas­cist par­ties else­where in the Euro­pean Union.

Rid­ing a wave of anti-immi­grant sen­ti­ment, Haider has become a major force in Aus­tri­an pol­i­tics and his anti-immi­grant theme has res­onat­ed effec­tive­ly among oth­er Euro­pean fas­cist con­stituen­cies. The pro­gram begins with dis­cus­sion of the sim­i­lar­i­ty between the polit­i­cal agen­das of Haider and oth­er Euro-fas­cists such as Christoph Blocher (the Holo­caust revi­sion­ist whose par­ty enjoyed recent suc­cess in Swiss elec­tions) and the Bel­gian Vlaams Blok. Much of the broad­cast cen­ters on the plans of key SS the­o­reti­cians for a post-war Europe unit­ed under fas­cism. The broad­cast ana­lyzes the growth of fas­cist par­ties in the EU against the back­ground of those SS plans.

Pro­gram High­lights Include: Haider’s Nazi fam­i­ly lega­cy; the mys­te­ri­ous great uncle who bequeathed Haider his wealth (derived from an estate wrest­ed from Jews flee­ing the Third Reich); Haider’s asso­ci­a­tion with Umber­to Bossi (an Ital­ian sep­a­ratist close­ly allied with Ital­ian fas­cism); the pos­si­bil­i­ty of the Nation­al Alliance becom­ing part of a coali­tion gov­ern­ment in Italy (the AN is the suc­ces­sor to Mus­solin­i’s fas­cist par­ty.)
