Further evidence of right-wing politics on the rise in Europe, or merely an attempt at equality and freedom of expression.

'The ‘cordon sanitaire’ around Vlaams Belang is “more necessary than ever,” a major Jewish organisation said on Thursday, one day after King Philippe received the president of the extreme-right party, the big winner in Sunday’s election in Belgium.'

Vlaams Belang, Belgium's most misogynistic party ever, says women's council

'Vlaams Belang, the big winner in last Sunday’s election, is Belgium’s most anti-woman party ever, the Conseil des femmes francophones de Belgique (CFFB) said on Thursday.'

Vlaams Belang, Belgium's most misogynistic party ever, says women's council

'Flemish far-right party Vlaams Belang has come under fire for replacing women who had won a seat at the weekend elections with male candidates lower down the party list.'

Vlaams Belang put up "dummy" female candidates to ensure election of men

'The Flemish ‘Forum for Democracy’ has started a petition to repeal the cordon sanitaire, the agreement between the traditional parties to keep the far-right Vlaams Belang out of the government.'

What exactly is it that party proposes that is so outrageous? Surely it would be better to defeat them in public debate and at the ballot box? If they are winning seats and then changing candidate then surely that is against the law - it would be in the UK.

The increased polarisation of political debate into entrenched blocs cannot be good for democracy, such as the mudslinging that preceded the BREXIT vote and has continued since.

From that newspaper report it seems that substituting candidates is a standard practice with people who have no intention of actually taking up a seat putting themselves on the ballot paper and stepping back once elected. The fact that this party has done this and replaced two women seems to be the complaint. Pure snowflake angst.

Hang on if misogyny is proof of the XRW, does that make the Islamic faith a right wing organisation?

You nailed the first bit, let's see in bold how the west is fairing

- The sovereignty of the individual - groupthink, and de-platforming
- The rule of law - expanding and biased
- Separation of political and judicial powers - political correctness
- Free speech - hate speech and suppression
- Freedom of belief - ridicule and demonization
- Democracy - ignorance, and bullying

It's real and going to get ugly.
The long march through the institutions has sown the wind, and it will reap the whirlwind.
A lot of assertions there champ.

In what way is the rule of law biased?

Do you think a strong man should control the judiciary as well as the government?

The problem is that legal processes depend on information, and there seems to be an effort to restrict information so that it fits the narrative. Consider the @Metoo movement and the backlash.

The court of public opinion is very much controlled by the media.

The problem is grievance and identity politics, and the justice of the mob, overriding the three characteristics that have enabled the ascent of the West and Western ideas. I do not think the West is defined by geography, history, skin colour, or religion.

The characteristics are representative democracy, the rule of law, and separation of powers between the executive and the judiciary.
Exactly, civic, not ethnic or geographical.
