I don't see how the rise of the UK Independence Party, a party who have mopped up the BNP (who in turn mopped up the National Front) are being helped by Russia. Please explain that connection.
The rise of Marie Le Pen, in a country more socialist than many, isn't from people voting Left. And people becoming "more vocal" is the same as "moving to the Right" when they visit the ballot box.

My bad! I thought I had directed you to this thread:
This is where I discuss " covert" Russian support for European Fascist organizations, and their fawning support for Putin.
Please explain in what way I am bigoted. Unlike some, I am always willing to learn about my flaws so that I can overcome them.

Now you've double posted.
Don't be a dolt. You've got a banner with Voltaire, yet you appear as bigoted as the next bigot.
I'm bored now, really, but I'll give it a go. You've presented a topic that demonstrates an overwhelming voice in favour of a position, yet presented it as negativity.
When it's pointed out by myself and others, of the fact that you're dealing with "in favour" figures, you appear to lambaste those opinions. Of course, we are all afforded that privilege, and a better place this site is for it, but it also brings out the bigoted.
IMO, you appear generally anti-whatever-Russia-is-up-to (and no, I haven't read all of your other 13,400 posts to qualify my assumption), but you have certainly taken my more-positive view, as "pro-Putin", and even, ridiculously accused me of being pro-Nazi.
I believe that I have a more balance position, but if you believe otherwise, then sod Voltaire, he's dead, I'll defend your right to hold your position (though not to the death). You could learn a lot from Voltaire, he abhorred intolerance.
