"Die Freiheit" Faces Uphill Battle

Reader comment on item: Germany's Freiheit Party Joins the Fray

Submitted by John Geheran (United States), Nov 3, 2010 at 16:40

Two factors are likely to result in the "stillbirth" of Die Freiheit Party. First, is Germany's past. Movements perceived as "right wing" will be suppressed in their efforts to attract a critical mass of credible membership. Secondly is leadership. At this moment, it is unclear that Die Freiheit will have the dynamic point-person of Holland's Geert Wilders. It will need to overcome both of these issue to survive.
