It was a joint motion by the conservative, social democratic, liberal, and green parliamentary groups., aimed at targeting Nazi groups. Neo-Nazism has been on the rise in Europe for several years now, spurred by white nationalists and Russian bots taking advantage of social media to spread fascist propaganda.

The rise in these neo-fascist groups has been mirrored by a rise in racist violence spiralling out of control, and for there to be a return to sane and safe politics, these nationalist parties must be quashed by an alliance of all respectable, democratic, parties.

As you can see from the vote, the resolution had the overwhelming support of all respectable political parties. All UK MEPs voted against it, except for 9 members of a certain party.

Guess which party they all belong to? Hint: it's the party that's by "pure coincidence" (sarcasm) often accused of having fascists in their ranks.

No doubt their definition of "fascism" will be suitably vague and flimsy enough to cover any form of dissident populism that threatens the neoliberal status quo. No matter, it still won't save them.

Weak.

If you can't convince the public that Nazism is bad then you fail as a politician. That's the easiest thing to do, and if you can't even do that then who cares about your agricultural (for example) policies?

What exactly do you mean by "it won't save them"? That sounds like a threat of violence.

Don't be ridiculous, it's not a threat of violence.

What I mean is, we are seeing nationalistic, anti-globalist and anti-neoliberal parties succeeding in numerous Central, Eastern and Southern European countries, and similar movements gaining electoral support across Western and Northern Europe too, (Brexit should be seen as a part of this also). Like it or not, there is a growing, democratic, populist rejection across Europe of the EU and many of it's professed ideals and visions for the future. I don't believe the EU is going to last, not in it's current form at least, I'd be very surprised if it doesn't collapse or massively reform within the next decade or so, and it will happen not through violence but through the ballot.

Given the very recent rampage of MAGA terrorists in the US, this was proven to be the right decision.
