Study claims ‘right-wing’ dominate on social media

Despite media censorship, conservatives have not given up on social media, according to a new study.

    Calls for mass censorship of conservatives continue, by labeling conservatives as “far right” and “extremist”.

    EuroNews reported that the “[F]ar right dominates online political debate” adding that “online political discussion has been hijacked by fringe populist groups according to new research”.

    Ahead of May’s European Parliament elections, data compiled by Alto Analytics showed that all over the continent, from Poland to Spain, posts on social media show a huge interest in anti-immigration, anti-globalist issues with less than 0,1 percent of users creating around 10 percent of all political posts.

    Notable parties like Spain’s VOX and Germany’s AfD (Alternative for Germany) have dominated the debate online according to the findings.

    The sheer extent of the posts online has resulted in a dominance on social media platforms largely focused on anti-establishment voices. Immigration and the complicity of the elites in stripping voters of their sovereign rights are some of the biggest issues facing voters in the upcoming elections.

    Mainstream media however continue to complain about the conservative “fringe” even though conservatives and sovereignists are no longer isolated and marginal.

    Rather than actually engage in debate, they claim that dissidents are either “bots” or “far-right extremists” in order to censor them.

    In the US, Atlantic writer David Frum, a neo-conservative, even warned that Republican anti-immigration voters will put America on the path to “fascism”. Frum also claims that “immigrants are making America safer” because they commit fewer crimes than the native-born population, a notion not supported by statistics.

    In 2018, Trump questioned why the US would accept more immigrants from Haiti and “shithole countries” in Africa rather than places like Norway. The bulk of these immigrants to the US and Europe are from countries where crime and insecurity reign.

    In 2015, the Lageso, the German acronym for the agency for health and social affairs, became a hot spot in the German capital and the symbol for everytheing that went wrong already in the early days of the migrant crisis: families camping in the open, confusion about procedure, a bureaucracy that was wrestling with itself as much as with the number of newcomers, completely unprepared.

    This chaos has continued, even after an estimated eight million people came forth in Germany to help the migrants – one German in ten. The number comes from a study conducted by the Protestant Church in Germany in late 2015, but the number of volunteers has remained high even years after the peak.

    The reason for the administrative nightmare may be that well-organised criminal syndicates have been responsible for the flood of African migrants who arrived in Spain last year.

    Filmmaker Lauren Southern told RT that in a rare interview with a human trafficker who helps ferry migrants from Morocco to Spain, the criminal explained that each client pays between €2 000 and €4 000 for the trip – a business model which Southern described as incredibly lucrative.

    In this way, nearly 60 000 illegals arrived in the EU.
