Fascism is coming back to Europe. The ideology of authoritarian nationalism has seen a resurgence as far-right, anti-immigrant parties have captured a disconcerting number of votes in recent European elections. The shocking video above, showing a politician from Greece’s neo-Nazi “Golden Dawn” party as he assaulted two left-wing women on television two weeks ago, is only the most recent example.
Here are some other examples of the nasty political movements that have thrived amidst the failed policies of austerity. (Hint: They don’t like Jews, Roma, and other minorities.)
