Watch Out Europe! They're Coming For You Next!
http://www.post-gazette.com/pg/05271/578747.stm

It's disturbing to me that Republicans are directly and indirectly fostering conservative movements in Europe. The American Enterprise Institute and apparently other Republican funded groups from this country are actively supporting with time and money conservative movements in Europe.

The growing conservative movements have been mentioned in the past few weeks with the numrous European elections moving a number of countries in a rightward direction.

If the plutocratic fascists who have taken over our country begin to take over Europe as well...Well boy howdy we're all in deep doo doo.

1. New Zealand fought 'em off a few years ago.
It's buried in my bookmarks right now, but I remember the very cool thread from a New Zealander detailing how they ousted 'em.

2. That may work in Poland
And in the former Soviet republics (eg. the colour-coded revolutions in Ukraine and Georgia). I doubt this tactic could be successful in the social democracies of Western Europe - France, Germany, Sweden - with their statist economies and latent anti-Americanism.

3. From what I understand it's already underway in both Germany and the UK
Sweden and France might be more difficult, but the conservative parties in Germany and the U.K. are definately starting to interact with these american conservative 'think tanks' and money laundering groups.
