Austria’s Freedom Party Surges as Controlled Media Keeps up Barrage of Smears and Lies

The English-speaking controlled mass media has kept up its barrage of smears and lies about Austria’s Freiheitliche Partei Österreichs (Freedom Party of Austria, or FPÖ), continuing to describe it as “far right” and “extremist” even as it surged to 21.4 percent of the vote to take 42 seats in that nation’s parliament—up eight seats since the last election.

The Social Democratic Party of Austria (Sozialdemokratische Partei Österreichs, or SPÖ)—which drew all the nonwhite invader vote in the election, estimated to be as much as five or six percent of the turned out votes—won 27.1 percent, losing four seats to hold 53 places in the Austrian parliament.

The flabby conservative Austrian People’s Party (Österreichische Volkspartei or ÖVP) polled 23.81 percent, losing five seats to hold 46 places in the new parliament.

As the controlled media insists on calling the FPÖ “extremist” and “far right” it is worthwhile consulting their election manifesto to see exactly what their policies are on the two issues—immigration and demographics—over which the leftist media makes such an issue.

According to the FPÖ’s official website (in German), its policies are as follows:

“[our] Policy of ‘charity’ means;

– [The] preservation of identity, culture and autonomy. The SPÖ, ÖVP and Greens do little to protect our Austrian identity. They work with the EU to create a unitary [European] state and people. They falsely tolerate radical Islamism through cowardice. One has the impression that they are shamed of their own culture and tradition.

“We want to maintain our own identity. For us, our traditions, customs and culture are unique and worth protecting. This includes our language, our rule of law, democracy and the separation of church and state.

“Therefore, we demand:

-No place for radical Islamism and the stopping [of] immigration from outside Europe;

– [The] preservation of full national sovereignty, including our neutrality and an end to [European Exchange Mechanism] ESM* liabilities;

– No Turkish membership of the EU;

– [The] promotion of the German language, especially in the public media;





– Commitment to our language and our values as a prerequisite for the acquisition of citizenship.”

(*ECM—the system whereby richer EU nations are forced to pay the debts of poorer member states).

This policy is anything but “far right” or “extremist”—unless, in the demented world of liberals and far leftists, a desire to preserve one’s identity is somehow wrong.

FPÖ leader Heinz-Christian Strache has already announced that he wants to form alliances with other pro-European parties in Europe. “We have a very friendly relationship with Italy’s Northern League and we also have cooperation with the Vlaams Belang in Belgium, and recently I have had talks with Geert Wilders in the Netherlands,” he was quoted as saying.

“There have been and will be many discussions before the next European Parliament elections. The freedom-conscious forces will combine their energies and will try to develop a stronger cooperative alliance in order to have a more heavyweight presence across Europe,” he added.

It has also become clear that the Alliance for the Future of Austria (Bündnis Zukunft Österreich BZÖ), a breakaway party from the FPÖ founded by former (and now deceased) leader Jorg Haider, has collapsed and contributed only to reducing the vote for the FPÖ.

The BZÖ polled 3.63 percent, down 7.07 percent from the nearly 11 percent it polled at the last elections and losing all 21 of its seats in the Austrian parliament. If the 3.63 percent were added to the FPÖ result, the latter party would have overtaken the ÖVP to be placed second with 25.03 percent.

Furthermore, the Eurosceptic establishment front party set up by Austrian Canadian expat Franz Stronach polled 5.79 percent, winning eleven seats in the new parliament. Once again, if that vote had been added to the FPÖ instead of being split away, the FPÖ would have come first.

Although nothing is yet finalized, it is likely that the two establishment parties, the ÖVP and the SPÖ will form another coalition to try and continue running the country. If this coalition should collapse for any reason, then it is still possible that the FPÖ would enter a coalition. Strache has said previously that the only precondition he would set would be a commitment to a referendum on the ECM.

* An analysis of voting patterns according to age in the Austrian elections has shown that the majority of under thirty-year-olds voted for the FPÖ. Some 23 percent of that age group voted for the FPÖ, as opposed to 22 percent for the ÖVP and 21 percent for the SPÖ.

The vast majority of people over the age of 60 voted for the two establishment parties, with 30 percent voting for the ÖVP and 33 percent opting for the SPÖ. Only 18 percent of over-60s voted for the FPÖ.

This age spread, combined with the fact that the BZÖ will now vanish, and the reality that the fake “Team Stronach” party will collapse once the aging millionaire behind it loses interest and passes away, means that the FPÖ is well-placed in the short-to–medium term to become the dominant player in Austrian politics.
