    It looks like Austrians, like Poles, Hungarians, Czechs and Slovaks, may have decided to save their country, people, culture, identity and history.

    God bless them…as one of the replaced who inhabits a country soon to be disappeared, I wish them well, and hope they manage to survive.

    If anti-colonialism was good enough for Gandhi it’s good enough for Austria. The Austrian people have refused to suffer the lash of their former religious oppressors — and have refused the hypocritical judgement of those who sanctify anti-colonialism everywhere else but brand it “racism” when the “wrong sort” of natives get restless.
