Europe needs a democratic Right

And it doesn't have one right now.

What I'm thinking of is Churchill, De Gaulle, Adenauer, Thatcher, and so on: leaders with a continental and civilizational view. Unfortunately, there is instead a vacuum filled up with nutcases, as described in this article about Filip Dewinter, the leader of Belgium's Flemish far-right Vlaams Belang party (requires subscription). Dewinter talks a good talk, but given the people he's associated with, he can't walk the walk.

The sort of people surrounding him and other far-right parties in Europe are lobotomized pygmies from a swamp of stupid and violent parochialism. They jabber about the need to save Europe - forgetting that their spiritual ancestors seventy or eighty years ago were busy, not saving Europe, but destroying it.
