Schism: Conservative podcast team fractures over European right-wing party

If you haven’t followed my posts about what’s going on at LGF, catch up now. Lines are being drawn within the right-wing blogosphere, and indeed even within certain right-wing blogs. Charles Johnson’s written several items lately on the right-wing Belgian party Vlaams Belang and how their dream of a jihad-free Europe seems to imagine a Europe free of a few other things as well. Shire Network News decided to interview VB leader Filip DeWinter and get to the bottom of things. Another crypto-Nazi party masquerading as “conservative”? Or a genuine conservative party getting a bad rap from jihadist apologists? “Tom Paine” of SNN concluded it’s the former; his partner, “Brian of London,” evidently disagreed. Sharply, too, as it sounds for all the world in the aftermath like they won’t be working together in the future.
I encourage you to listen to the full interview at the link (or here at LGF if SNN won’t load for you), but if you’re pressed for time skip ahead to 31:24 near the end and listen to Tom’s final question to DeWinter followed by his own concluding remarks. Well worth your time.
