Merkel is "centre".No. Merkel is not "right wing" by a long shot. If you were to mark a position in a space of indexes for "left" to "right" policies, she would be well "left" on almost every scale, in my opinion. But I would gladly hear a topic, where she is further "right" than "left" in an absolute sense.
In the case of the other two I just do not know.
I disagree fully. The political leaning of the Prime Minister is reflected in the government and the party she/he represents.
And her policies are right wing including the social ones. Now one can debate to what degree of course, but no European (nor world) politican would ever be able to be elected if they had the same degree of "right wing" social policies as the GOP has.
hardly anyone in Europe knows stormfront.The reason is that the EU is in dire straights and the populations are restive. The old political parties and elites are afraid of a loss of power and are thus resorting to the populism of vilification instead of debate. Hence the choice of words like "stormfront".
If you look closely at the GOP, you find they're not in Europe.
Europe's governments. (2012)
And yet, if you look, the GOP has the majority of governorships and the majority of state legislatures, so that's not quite and accurate assessment, now is it?
First off. The GOP has at the moment the majority of governorships. That can change and will in many states depending on the candidates.
Secondly. Having the state legislatures is nothing. They should all be thrown out and the districts be redrawn after non political methods. The reason that the GOP has a majority in state legislatures is that they have rigged the system to make it so. Same reason the GOP has a majority in the House despite way more people voting for Democrats the last few elections.. the system is rigged.
If you hate the dehumanizing of women, religious intolerance, laws that enforce the torture and execution of those who do not adhere to certain religious beliefs, if you hate bigotry or pedophilia, then you hate Islam!...
Guessing this was copied from Stormfront...
And most governments in Europe are right wing and have been for some time...
Meh. Nice chart.
I don't know anything about politicalcompass.org. I've poked around their web site, as part of trying to vet the source, and I'm not finding who's running these studies.
When you plot the political positions of various organizations such as is shown, the determination of what's the middle and where to place it can skew the entire results. I'm not saying that's what's going on here, but it seems odd to me that EVERY nation listed is listed right authoritarian, even those that would leave the impression of being distinctly left.
Seriously... Merkel is right wing.. end of story. Her party is right wing, and her government is right wing. Is she "american right wing".. of course not, no one but the Americans are that. Cameron would be a left wing loon in the US for **** sake.
So yes Merkel is a right winger, by German standards, and by international standards.
And the CDU/CSU are left leaning parties that stand for the old fashioned social programs European countries are handicapped with.
Please name them.
Germany, UK, Spain, The Netherlands, Belgium, Denmark, Ireland, Poland, Hungary, Finland, Latvia, Estonia, Luxembourg, Cyprus and technically Croatia.
What facts? Why would any refugees be allowed in right wing countries? Are these governments Nazis like so many claim about the right? And which one of those countries has a majority of right wingers in the parliments or whatever you call them.
You see the left calls any disagreement right wing. So do you just disagree with some laws, therefore leading you to believe they are right wing?
And that makes them leftist? Of course not. No party in Europe, left or right, would ever be able to get elected if their goal was to get rid of the social programs that you oh so hate. Not even the far right who blame Muslims, Jews and homosexuals for everything will go so far as to dismantle the social programs..
I'm non-white -- why does every criticism from Islam have to be Stormfront? There are a lot of non-white people like me who support Trump. And it's not just because of the Muslim thing, it's because of his strong desire to Make America Great Again, as opposed to the Democrats, who want to give everything away.
Vote for the man who is the opposite of the leftists who destroyed Europe and fighting overtime to bring America down the same path.
Trump will keep us safe
