Far Right Politics Gaining Momentum Worldwide

This content was originally published on April 20, 2017, but it has been continuously updated over the years, with the latest update conducted in October 2023.

Far Right Politics

Right-wing parties are gaining momentum all over the world, and our proprietary V-indicator that measures volatility as related to markets and human emotion is now at an all-time new high with a reading of  5600.  When we launched this indicator, years go the readings were back in the 300 ranges.  This further cements the argument that the central driving theme in the world (and not just the U.S) is going to be to “polarise the masses”.  Do not become part of the crowd for they are going to go insane and lose a lot in the process; you, on the other hand, could stand to benefit tremendously provided you do not lose control.

Geert Wilders from the Far-right movement continues to lead the polls in the Netherlands further confirming what we stated in 2015, last year and this year. This is a very powerful trend, and like it or not it is gaining traction. No matter how loudly the opposition screams, it is not going to stop this trend.

Far Right Politics Gaining Momentum in the Netherlands: A Closer Look at Geert Wilders’ Rise to Power

In the ever-shifting landscape of global politics, one name has been making waves on the Dutch political scene, and it’s none other than Geert Wilders. The Netherlands, often hailed for its progressive ideals and liberal policies, is witnessing a seismic shift in its political arena, with the far-right gaining significant ground.

Geert Wilders: The Far-Right Firebrand

At the forefront of this surge is Geert Wilders, a charismatic and controversial figure who leads the Party for Freedom (PVV). Wilders, known for his fiery rhetoric and staunch anti-immigration stance, has been a polarizing force in Dutch politics for years. However, recent developments suggest that his influence is growing stronger, and he’s closer than ever to realizing his vision for the Netherlands.

The Latest Polls: A Game-Changer in the Making

The latest weekly poll has sent shockwaves through Dutch politics. According to this data, Geert Wilders and his PVV party are poised to win a staggering 30 out of the 76 seats needed to form a coalition government. In contrast, the incumbent People’s Party for Freedom and Democracy (VVD) led by Prime Minister Mark Rutte is trailing with just 24 projected seats.

This unexpected surge in support for Wilders has raised eyebrows across the nation and beyond. It’s a clear indication that far-right politics in the Netherlands are gaining momentum at an unprecedented pace.

The Warning Signs of Political Turbulence

While Geert Wilders’ meteoric rise might excite his supporters, it’s essential to consider the potential consequences of such a political earthquake. Political analyst Mr. Korteweg has sounded a cautionary note, suggesting that a Wilders’ victory could lead to a protracted and uncertain coalition-building process. This, in turn, might result in an unstable government, leaving the Dutch political landscape in a state of flux.

The International Ramifications

The implications of this surge in far-right support in the Netherlands extend far beyond the country’s borders. Europe, as a whole, has been grappling with the rise of far-right movements, and Wilders’ success could further embolden like-minded parties across the continent. The specter of right-wing populism gaining traction is a cause for concern for those who champion liberal democratic values.

Looking Ahead: What’s Next for the Netherlands?

As we venture deeper into the turbulent world of Dutch politics, one thing is abundantly clear: the rise of far-right politics led by Geert Wilders is a phenomenon that cannot be ignored. It represents a shift in the political landscape of a nation known for its progressive policies and liberal ideals.

The upcoming elections and their aftermath will undoubtedly be watched closely, both within and outside the Netherlands. Will Geert Wilders secure the 30 seats that the polls suggest? And if so, what will the ramifications be for the country’s political stability and the wider European landscape?

Stay tuned as we delve further into this fascinating, and potentially paradigm-shifting, development in Dutch politics. The rise of the far-right in the Netherlands is a story that continues to unfold, and we will be here to provide you with the latest updates and insights as events transpire.

 

Far Right Surge in the Netherlands: Geert Wilders and the Unpredictable Path Ahead

In the heart of Europe, where windmills once spun idyllically against tulip-covered fields, a political storm is brewing. The far-right, once a distant echo in Dutch politics, is roaring to life under the charismatic leadership of Geert Wilders. As the winds of change gust across the Netherlands, it’s not just politics as usual – it’s a high-stakes drama that could redefine the nation’s future.

Geert Wilders: A Maverick in Dutch Politics

Picture a political maverick, a man with electrifying rhetoric, a shock of platinum hair, and a penchant for controversy. That’s Geert Wilders. He’s the face of the far-right movement in the Netherlands, leading the Party for Freedom (PVV) with an unapologetic anti-Islam and Eurosceptic stance. But what’s truly capturing the Dutch public’s imagination?

The Latest Political Turbulence

The latest data paints a vivid picture: Geert Wilders’ PVV party is riding high in the polls, poised to secure a significant 30 out of the 76 seats needed to form a coalition government. On the other side of the aisle, the incumbent People’s Party for Freedom and Democracy (VVD) is trailing with just 24 projected seats.

What’s causing this seismic shift in Dutch politics? Wilders’ anti-Islam and Eurosceptic rhetoric is striking a chord with Dutch voters. In an era dominated by concerns about migration, terrorism, and the persistent challenges of the eurozone, his message is resonating powerfully.

The Coalition Conundrum

But here’s where it gets truly captivating – the Netherlands could be on the brink of a political conundrum. With Wilders’ PVV likely to lead the way, forming a coalition government may prove to be an arduous task. As political analyst Mr. Korteweg warns, an alliance in this politically polarized landscape may involve no fewer than five parties.

And the twist? Such a multi-party coalition might be inherently unstable, potentially unraveling soon after its formation. The result? A fresh round of elections, plunging the Netherlands into a whirlpool of uncertainty.

The Broader Implications

Beyond the Dutch borders, Europe watches with bated breath. The rise of the far-right in the Netherlands carries ramifications that stretch far and wide. It’s not just a Dutch affair; it’s a reflection of broader trends in European politics. Right-wing populism, if further emboldened by Wilders’ success, could reshape the entire continent’s political landscape.

As we navigate this thrilling tale of political upheaval and transformation, one thing is clear: the Netherlands is at a crossroads. Will Geert Wilders’ far-right surge lead to a new era in Dutch politics, or will the traditional order hold its ground?

Stay tuned as we unravel the captivating story of Geert Wilders and the far-right wave sweeping the Netherlands. The future of this nation, and possibly Europe, hangs in the balance, and we’re here to bring you the latest, most gripping developments.

 

France and Far Right Politics

Moreover, in France from nowhere the far-right movement of Le Pen is gaining momentum at a devastatingly rapid pace

A new poll published on February 14 has found that Marine Le Pen is continuing to increase her lead and now stands to win 27 per cent of the first round of voting. Emmanuel Macron is set to come in second place with 22 per cent, with Francois Fillon in third place according to the poll by PrésiTrack OpinionWay / ORPI for Les Echos and Radio Classique. Benoit Hamon is predicted to come in fourth place with 15 per cent. Despite Ms Le Pen’s clear lead in the first round of voting, the survey found that she will likely lose in the second round. Full story

Trump and Far Right Politics Movement

That is what they said of Trump, Wilders and now Le Pen. Who knows if she will win or not, but the trend is in favour of such leaders, so the odds favour her or someone like her. Watch the situation from a distance no matter how tempted you are to be drawn in. The top players are counting on you to jump in and fight like there is no tomorrow. The game is rigged, and you have all the control in the world, but the majority fail to see this. This is a ruse to trigger the masses and as we have stated the masses will always lose.

Observe and try not to interact; finally, understand that you should not oppose this trend for you cannot; a trend in motion is unstoppable, and this is a very powerful trend. Sadly, everything we predicted years ago when we first made these predictions is coming to pass. We use the word sadly, for we would love to be wrong, but it looks like we are out of luck. Now the trend is in motion, and it will stop only when it has run its course.

Random thoughts

Everything is connected you just need to spot the pattern.  Free market forces ceased to exist after 2008; the markets were never free, but any remnants of freedom vanished after the Fed decided to prop the markets indefinitely by forcefully maintaining an ultra-low rate interest rate environment.  All the information today is manipulated; from the food, you eat to data you are provided.  If you are aware of this, you can plan accordingly. Identifying the problem is over 80% of the solution, and this is why most people do not know what to do because they do not understand the problem. Now you know why we are the only financial website that covers such a wide array of topics that on the surface appear to be unrelated but are in fact, deeply interwoven.  Mass psychology is a very powerful tool, and if employed correctly can help you spot the abnormal levels of manipulation, the masses are subjected to. We strongly recommend that you take a look at Plato’s allegory of the cave.
