Waiting respectfully for the last European who was alive during World War II to die, Austria’s new Nazi party immediately soared to power winning the national election last week.
This follows the fine showing in September of Alternative for Germany, the first party of ultra-right, ultra-fascists to take seats in Germany’s Parliament since the 1940's.
Even more promising for the ascending Nazis in Austria, the country of Adolf Hitler’s birth, is the news that its victorious People’s Party (sounds neighborly enough) will likely form Austria’s new government in alliance with Heinz-Christian Strache’s Freedom Party (which also sounds like a friendly group devoted to democratic ideals, until you find out it was started by ex-Nazis in the 1950s).
The People’s Party leader, 31-year-old Sebastian Kurz, is a handsome, silver-tongued, far-right wunderkind who could sell train tickets on a cattle car to a room full of Jews. Young, smart, charismatic and skilled in making his followers think they’re going berry picking when they’re actually off to dig mass graves, Kurz, for some unknown reason, isn’t jogging the National Socialist memories of his countrymen.
Prominent Jewish writer and Holocaust survivor, Elie Wiesel, who rose from his grave last week upon hearing the news out of Austria, Germany, and other parts of Europe was both stiff and incredulous: “Are you fucking kidding me! These are Nazis, for crying out loud! Don’t you memory-defective idiots see what’s happening here — HISTORY IS REPEATING ITSELF!”
Many from Europe’s various right wing, extremist parties immediately denounced Wiesel as a publicity seeking alarmist “who probably has a new book to sell.”
The far right, quasi-Nazi coalition in Austria, pairing the People’s Party with the Freedom Party, will assume power later this year, with plans to invade Poland next spring.
In related news, museums throughout Europe are hiding their artwork, artists and gypsies have fled to the relative safety of caves in Spain’s Pyrenees mountains, and Jews just can’t fucking believe this shit.
