Some of the worst excesses are left out

Reader comment on item: In Defense of Europe's "Far-Right" Parties

Submitted by Zenobia van Dongen (Argentina), Feb 23, 2019 at 05:36

Some of Daniel Pipes' defenses of European populists are reasonable. However he leaves out the undermining of the rule of law in Hungary, where the government now controls the mass media, and in Poland, where the entire judicial system has been rigged from the supreme court on down. These abuses are still reversible in principle, since elections are still free.
