Radical Agenda EP162 – Do Over
Back in May, Norbert Hofer of Austria’s “far right” Freedom Party was described as being “on the edge of power” leading up to his country’s presidential election. When the polls were closed and votes were counted, Hofer had lost the election to the former leader of the Greens, Alexander Van der Bellen, by just 30,863 votes or less than one percentage point.
Serious questions were raised about the validity of the result. The town of Waidhofen an der Ybbs, for example, had 149.9% of its population vote in the election, a mathematical impossibility.
Now Austria’s highest court has overturned the result, and election will now be re-run.
At issue in the case were “postal votes” where voters could register their votes by mail. The court found such staggering impropriety in the handling of these votes as to justify a whole new election.
Coming on the heels of Brexit, and with a freshly energized and angered Austrian right, Hofer could very well win the election. It would make him the first far right head of an EU state, and he has said he would favor a referendum similar to Britain’s within a year to consider Austria leaving the EU as well.
In other news, transgender people (should we still be calling them people?) are officially approved for military service in the United States. Hopefully they will be used as human shields, or biological weapons against the enemy. What’s more likely, unfortunately, is a bunch of mentally ill people will be handed heavy weaponry by the United States federal government and when they inevitably snap and murder people, they’ll be used as gun control propaganda.
