How should Europe respond to the recent rise in popularity of Far-Right wing groups?

Posted by: UtherPenguin

There is the Svoboda in Ukraine, Golden Dawn in Greece, the NPD in Germany and the Front National in France. While younger generations in North America are known for being mostly liberal younger generations in Europe have become more nationalistic. How should Europe respond to this?

Embrace them.

Greece is for Greeks, France is for French and England is for English. What's wrong with a little bit of nationalism?

Suppress them

This is history repeating itself, in times of economic crisis people often look towards extreme idealogies as they often provide scapegoats to the problem. Hitler was elected democratically and in just a few years he turned the Weimar Republic into ... a fascist dictatorship. Just imagine what they would do if they got elected   more

Ignore Them

These groups are only an insignificant minority, Anti-Immigrant protests by the NPD are heavily countered by anti-NPD protests by the rest of the population. Let them express their opinion, just as long as their is no violence. It is Freedom of Sp... eech after all   more

@UtherPenguin How so?
UtherPenguin says2015-04-03T17:51:32.7259427-05:00
@Renegader The reason why there is so much immigration into Europe is because the fertility rate of Europe is too small to support itself anymore, if they blocked off immigration they would be going through the same problem as Japan, in a way Europe brought this upon itself.

@triangle.128k Anything and everything that has to do with Nationalist/Right-Wing Politics is Heilbait.

Nazism is not necessarily right-wing.

Some people just like to classify them as far-right wing though they aren't really.

I'll have to grow up in this unsteady Europe :/

@triangle.128k True, but it still has to do with Nationalism. And the thumbnail of this poll is the NPD (Germany's modern Nazi Party) so it's still heilbait.

Big deal, it's just a semi-visible flag. I doubt it will bait heil in on his 500th account.

Every rational, respectable European citizen should rise against them. Don't let them destroy their nations like they are trying to do to the U.S.

In the UK it's scary seeing the rise in popularity of UKIP.

@UtherPenguin I disagree. Europe's fertility rate is stabilizing in the same way that Russia's has. The policy of endless immigration is causing much more negative effects than positive. There are also other ways to increase fertility rate than immigration. Offering child tax exemption policies works very well. If we stop the ridiculous immigration, these far right scum will disappear.

These far right wing people in USA have done enough harm.

@Renegader Russia is facing a similar crisis, it's fertility rate is also just as low (https://www.Youtube.Com/watch?V=Y93ip0lMNJ8) The reason why Russia seems to not have as much of a problem is because they are already encouraging immigration from ethnic Russians and Russian speakers living abroad in Eastern Europe. However most European countries are not able to do the same strategy. Also what about the Svoboda? There is little immigration to Ukraine yet the Svoboda is still rising in popularity. The average fertility rate of Europe is roughly 1.59 children per woman. Which is not stable enough to maintain a populace without some form of immigration.

They are not just rascist, they are complete wingnuts that want to bring back capital punishment. Vote them in and you can only blame yourself when you are being flogged in the street for disagreeing or being in someother way unacceptable.

Like the IRA created an exceptable political face that is what these are trying to do.

@SwizzardWizard - In the poorer parts down south they are opening offices.
