Around the world, conservatives are rising up. Their leftist counterparts are sore afraid. Der Spiegel reports:
The successes of right-wing populists could indeed exacerbate the smoldering euro crisis. Tensions between the wealthy countries in the north, who are contributing most to the bailouts, and the ailing debtor nations in the periphery already threaten to destroy the monetary union. If a European version of the American Tea Party movement develops, it could very well become the kiss of death for the euro.
The German publication describes European conservatives as divisive, dangerous, selfish, racist, suspicious, xenophobic simpletons who hate women.
Why does that description sound so familiar?
