The New York Times is at it again.
Europeans beware. There are “far-right” extremists in your midst. They are “spreading disruption” and Putin and the Russians are behind it.
Russia is cultivating an array of far-right extremist groups, hoping they’ll destabilize or disorient the E.U. https://t.co/odoriIsOd8

According to Andras Racz, a Russia expert at the Finnish Institute of International Affairs, Putin’s crew is engaged in “a scattershot strategy of placing small bets, directly or through proxies, on ready-made fringe groups in an effort to destabilize or simply disorient the European Union,” the Times reports.
Mr. Putin did not engineer the shift single-handedly, but he has been adept at making his own luck, deploying Orthodox priests, Russian-funded news media outlets like RT, spies and computer hackers to ride and help create the wave of populist anger now battering the foundations of the post-1945 European order.
The US State Department did something similar in Ukraine. It “single-handedly” designed a coup and overthrew the country’s democratically elected government. It used “far-right” extremists—more specifically, neo-Nazis—to depose Viktor Yanukovych, who was a little too friendly with Russia.
In fact, millions of Europeans are fed-up with the “post-1945 European order,” that is to say rule by unelected European Union bureaucrats. The first president of the European Commission was “a member of several nominally Nazi professional organizations” and served in Adolf Hitler’s army, according to Gerard Batten, a member of the British parliament.
A report titled Europaische Wirtschafts Gemeinschaft—the European Economic Community—was prepared by the Nazis in 1942.
“This report was written by various bankers and academics and laid out a plan for how Germany would manage the economies of the conquered countries of Europe after a German victory. The report was drawn up under the leadership of Professor Walter Funk the Reich’s Economics Minister and President of the Reichsbank,” writes Batten.
“If this all sounds all very familiar it is because the basic plan for the European Economic Community of 1942 was very similar to the actual European Economic Community that came into existence in 1957 under the Treaty of Rome.”
Last month the Times reported the Russians “hacked” the election in the United States. It said this despite providing zero evidence. It cited government officials and the CIA. The CIA refused to back up its claim. We are expected to believe the agency despite its track record of pathological lies and violence.
The New York Times did the same thing back in 2002 and 2003. The end result was a million and a half dead people in Iraq. The Iraq WMD ruse is one of the most significant fake news stories in recent history. It makes the pizzagate story look like a playground rumor by way of comparison.
