Today our beloved Austrians rejected the ruling Socialist government, obliterated the presidency-wielding Green Party, and handed rule of the central European nation to a 31 year old Millenial by the name of Sebastian Kurz.
According to our friends at Fria Tider, the breakdown went as follows:
- Kurz’s ÖVP- also known as the Austrian People’s Party- won the election with 30.5%o of the vote.
- Our first choice- the Preservationist ‘Freedom Party’ or FPÖ- came in second, with 26.8 percent of the vote.
- And the current Social Democratic government party SPÖ looks to have earned 26.2%.
First Post started their article on the results thus:
Vienna: Austrians were voting in a snap election tipped to see conservative Sebastian Kurz, 31, become the EU’s youngest leader and form an alliance with the far-Right, in the bloc’s latest populist test.
A rightward shift in the wealthy European Union member of 8.75 million people would be a fresh headache for Brussels, as it already struggles with Britain’s decision to leave and the rise of nationalists in Germany, Hungary, Poland and elsewhere.
Rejection Of Liblabbery
No matter what, I do think this election must be seen as a defeat for Suicidalist liberalism.
Perhaps the Austrians were emboldened by the news from America that a collection of powerful progressives centered around Harvey Weinstein were finally getting their vast program of rape and sexual assault brought to light.
Its also possible they were so enraged at the victory of Green Party candidate Alexander Bellen in the rerun of the presidential election earlier this year (the first vote was overturned due to fraud) that they shifted rightward, punishing both the Greens and the Socialists.
As we all know, Austria for the last two decades has followed Germany and Sweden down the Soros-sponsored path to cultural suicide, importing infinity Muslims in exchange for glowing praise from Vice and the Daily Forward and Carlos Slim’s copyrighting team.

Its also quite possible the vote went the way it did because of the Austrians sheer existential fear over what continued mass-Muslim immigration would mean.
Here's why the majority of Austria voted for anti-immigration parties today: https://t.co/TD4v8ePdjn

Unfortunately the Freedom Party only got second, or they would have the chancellorship.
It looks likely that they will form a coalition government with Kurz’s People’s Party, but that means the main question that must be answered is….
Who Is Sebastian Kurz?
I have been trying to research this question ever since it became clear Kurz would be the new chancellor.
There is a decent amount of discussion about it online of course.
Zero Hedge discussed Kruz’s balancing act between being the ‘anti-Freedom Party choice’ and embracing the FPO’s policies:
To his supporters, Kurz is Austria’s Macron: a one-man political phenomenon who is the only thing standing between the country’s resurgent nationalists and power. But to his detractors he is the Austrian Trump, who has hijacked one of the country’s two main parties and refashioned it in his own image. His critics say he is only holding the populists back by adopting their anti-immigrant rhetoric and policies.
By taking a hard line on immigration that commingled his campaign with that of the Freedom Party (FPO), 31-year old Foreign Minister Kurz managed to propel his People’s Party to first place and draw some support away from an FPO buoyed by Europe’s migration crisis.
It also shares positives:
The young leader has pledged to cut benefits for all foreigners in Austria and has vowed to stop the European Union meddling in the country’s politics.
Other sources indicate that Kurz sponsored a law that would ban the foreign funding of mosques in Austria, although the Freedom Party stated the bill was a “placebo”.
An Anon on 4plebs/pol who seems to hail from Austria described Kurz (back when he was first appointed as head of the People’s Party) as not really being an ideologue and being more of an “opportunist” who spoke of a “European Islam” early in his career but tightened his rhetoric once the migrant crisis began.
Aother Anon on yuki.la/pol states that:
He is a fake. Our cuckservative party is divided. Kurz leads a centrist-right Wing with refreshing ideas, but the main parts are still traitors. I will never forget that he let 100k in our country. Vienna is lost now.
On the other hand, Haaretz‘s article on the election results is headlined:
“Sebastian Kurz, an Anti-immigration Millennial, Elected Austria’s Next Chancellor”
It also states:
Kurz used the 24 hours before polls open to repeat, from every possible platform, his campaign’s main message: “Stop illegal immigration.” In an exclusive interview with the right-wing Wochenblick, published Thursday, Kurz outlined the direction he would take. “We’re now contending with the consequences of several mistakes we made 30 and 40 years ago, when uncontrolled immigration began.” If elected chancellor, he promised, he would combat the “parallel community,” his term for Muslims in Austria, as well as acting against “political Islam.”
It also relates the following anecdote (which could very well be a lie, considering its Haaretz):
There is one chapter in his race to the top that Kurz would probably prefer to delete from his biography. In 2010, when running for municipal office, he led a campaign under the banner “black is cool/sexy” — black was his party’s color and cool/sexy is the translation of the loaded German word Geil.
Kurz rented a Hummer and traveled the streets of Vienna accompanied by shapely women. The video he distributed focused on their breasts. One of his stops was at the Moulin Rouge club, where he organized a cool/sexy party. He later distributed condoms on the street, relating how he lost his virginity at the age of 15. Now, seven years later, his rivals are using this to portray him as sexist, childish and politically incorrect.
Finally, the CNN article on the election is also mixed.
Their headline asks if Kurz is Austria’s “Answer to Macron or Trudeau?”, but inside the article it is claimed that Kurz’s opposition to mass-immigration is what “has made him a star”.
In this regard even some of the mainstream globalist publications themselves seem unsure what to make of the young Millenial Chancellor.
It will probably be impossible to know what Kurz’s legacy will be for a little while. Being only 31 years old and obviously quite ambitious, I imagine his public statements and actions have in large measure been motivated by strategy and self-interest up to this point.
Now that he has become the youngest individual to rule a modern European state in God knows how long, it will be interesting to see what direction he goes in.
It is possible he may shift even more rightward, now that he is no longer ‘looking upward’ politically.
On the contrary, I am sure none of us have trouble imagining him doing the opposite, and caving to the massive pressure to continue Austria’s path toward national suicide.
I am hopeful that if Kurz forms a coalition with the Freedom Party, Austria may really shift rightward and realign itself with the Visegrad Nations to the east. That would be an absolute dream come true, and could really potentially save Austria from the fate awaiting France/the UK/Sweden/Germany.
Many questions remain un-answered though.
Will he indeed govern with the FPO?
Will Austria be the first nation in Europe to turn their back on what Douglas Murray calls The Strange Death of Europe?
Is it too late for Austria to survive through merely electoral means anyway?
Will the FPO’s fortunes improve as a coalition member, or would they be more powerful as the main opposition force?
Will economic collapse hasten Europe’s trajectory?
Many, many questions men.
Editor’s Note: It now looks like the Socialists may have just barely beaten out the FPO for second place, but there is conflicting information depending on the website.
Also, for a couple excellent books that touch on the FPO and its history- as a side note- check out the following:
The End of Europe: Dictators, Demagogues, and the Coming Dark Age (this is actually a liberal dystopian novel about a ‘far-right’ Europe in the near-term future, where FPO-type parties govern. It is unintentionally funny and is written by the infamous Jamie Kirchick)
