Double Standard

Apropos of the post below:

Here is a foretaste of the push-back that is inevitable in Europe, and its vehemence is due, not to right-wing thugishness, but to precisely the "tolerance romanticism" to which the Austrian MP Ewald Stadler here calls attention. Had the political class in Europe and the European Union not shamelessly exploited these tensions and ignored the crisis facing the West, a more modulated voice might be addressing these issues today. As it is, the truth breaks the surface with a degree of understandable rage.
