    Austrian FM's Support of Macedonia's Right-wing Govt Unnerves Socialists

    Austrian FM Defends Decision to Back Macedonia Ruling Party

    After a wave of criticism, Austria’s Foreign Minister Sebastian Kurz has insisted that his speech at election rally for Macedonia's ruling VMRO DPMNE party should not be seen as controversial.

    Kurz, who was accused of supporting authoritarianism after appearing at an election rally for Macedonia’s embattled ruling VMRO DPMNE party on Sunday, stated that he "attended the rally in my capacity as member of the European People's Party."

    The European People’s Party is a centre-right transnational coalition made up of other political parties.

    Kurz, who is also visiting Skopje today, drew a distinction between the rally appearance and his official meetings with Macedonian dignitaries on Monday, which he will attend in his capacity as Austrian Foreign Minister.

    Critics accused Austria’s top diplomat Kurz of hypocrisy and shameful conduct for openly endorsing Macedonia's ruling VMRO DPMNE party - which is accused of authoritarian tendencies - by speaking at its election campaign rally on Sunday in Skopje.
    Kurz also came under fire for saying that Macedonia is on the right path towards EU integration - an opinion which contradicts the last European Commission report on the country.
    Florian Bieber, a lecturer at the Centre for Southeast European Studies and at the University of Graz, said that Kurz's backing for the party, which has been in power for ten years, was unacceptable.
    "You are endorsing an authoritarian gatekeeper over a democratic EU member candidate. Shameful," Bieber wrote on Twitter.
    Some critics reminded Kurz of the European Commission progress report, which said that the “state capture” of democratic institutions was disturbing, pinpointing many shortcomings in the rule of law and in freedom of speech.
    "The EC says state capture undermines the Macedonian democracy. Sebastian Kurz is in Skopje to endorse the captors at their party rally," former Macedonian Deputy Foreign Minister Nikola Dimitrov, who is also the country’s former ambassador to the United States and the Netherlands, wrote on Twitter.

    "So respect for rule of law turns irrelevant once you help keeping refugees out? Is this Austria's alleged support of Macdeonia's path to EU?" the deputy chairman of the European Stability Initiative, Kristof Bender asked on Twitter.

    Kurz addressed the VMRO DPMNE rally in the capital on Sunday, backing the party for the December 11 early general elections and saying that it is a guarantor of Macedonia's Euro-Atlantic future.

    "We are especially happy that Macedonia is on a good path towards the European Union," Kurz said.

    He continued by praising the VMRO DPMNE-led government for helping his own country deal with the refugee crisis.

    “Macedonia is a very important partner for Austria and we are particularly grateful for the support we received from Macedonia in 2015 and 2016. The refugee crisis was a major challenge for Austria. Without your government, we wouldn't be able to close the Balkan Route,” he said.
    “I'm very grateful that you supported us in this very difficult situation,” he added.

    Although he said that he was there merely as a guest from a sister centre-right party, Kurz's hosts announced him in his formal capacity as the Austrian foreign minister.

    He also spoke of his admiration for his Macedonian counterpart, Nikola Poposki, who is now high on the candidate list of the ruling party.

    The December 11 elections come amid a deep and long-running political crisis in the country that revolves around opposition's claims that former Prime Minister and VMRO DPMNE party leader Nikola Gruevski was the mastermind behind the illegal surveillance of over 20,000 people, including his own ministers, which he has denied.

    The opposition has also claimed that tapes of the illegally-recorded conversations provide evidence that many top members of government and their associates were involved in serious illegal schemes including rigging general and presidential elections in 2014, manipulating the justice system, intimidating and controlling the media, and covering up the murder of a young man by a police officer.
    The upcoming election follows two years of large anti-government protests - attended by tens of thousands of people at their peak - sparked by the release of the tapes.

    *************************

    Macedonia has been key in shutting down the refugee route;



    http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worl...-migrants.html

    Macedonia fully sealed its border with Greece today, shutting down the Balkan trail used by more than a million people and triggering fears migrants will take far more dangerous routes to Western Europe.
    The Macedonian govt has been attacked by refugee advocates and the leftist opposition (funded by Soros), and now is facing an early election. Good news is the current right-wing VMRO govt is favoured to win in a landslide.

    And so the pendulum continues to swing to the right. It will be very interesting to see how Macedonia's actions will affect its application to the EU, which has been pending since 2004.

    With the havoc that has been created by Soros around the globe eventually somebody will bring him up on criminal charges. This individual is solely responsible for causing riots and burning cities around the world. The only descriptions I have for him are international criminal and evil mastermind. He reminds me of the evil mastermind one would find in a 007 movie.

    The good news is that things are swinging to the Right. With enough right wing movements taking hold eventually somebody will get the idea to seize his money and imprison him and help cut the head off the snake.

    There are ambitions afoot in certain Austrian circles to revive the old Austro-Hungarian empire as a counterweight to Germany (infested by braindead cucks) and France (infested by Muslims).

    That means getting on board with the ex-Yugoslav states, Hungary and so forth so it's not too surprising to see them boosting relations in the Balkans.

    Whatever happens, hopefully more countries start looking beyond the EU and will help bring about its demise. The sooner the better.

    It's interesting though that Hungary is pushing for expansion of the EU to the remaining Balkan states out of the EU to help stem illegal immigration. I would have thought that would increase immigration with Merkel dictating policy...


    http://www.breitbart.com/london/2016...grant-defence/

    Hungary’s foreign minister has urged the European Union (EU) to expedite expansion of the bloc south through the Balkans in a bid to seal the European continent off from illegal immigration.
    Currently the Visegrad group + Austria and the Balkan states are doing a good job at stemming the flow. They can't rely on the EU, they must do it together (independent of the EU) as they are now.

    Soros media is in over-drive at the moment in Macedonia. After funding a failed ''colour revolution'' earlier in the year, now is their last opportunity to dislodge the Right from power in Macedonia;
