Amazing and horrifying. Despite being a fairly close student of politics and
society, I'd never heard of this group or its ideology, but they fulfill
EXACTLY the design of my worst nightmare: A populist-aimed blend of racism,
religion and "naturism". Their hit counters and the feel of their rhetoric
indicates that they are a very marginal group, but their explicit aim of
coalition building is exactly the sort of thing that children of the
Enlightenment need to be watchful of. Thanks for this link . . . you've
ruined my whole day :-)
