The extreme right today has not changed since Hitler or Mussolini. It remains this shit of intolerance calling for hatred, violence, racism. Recent events in Germany demonstrate this once again. They were aiming for a coup d'etat and the rejection of democratic institutions, because for these morons, people's opinions never mattered, only theirs. It is to the point that today in Germany, the terrorist risk of the far right is considered greater there than that of the Islamists!

They already believed in it, structuring themselves with "Justice", "Foreign Affairs", "Health" committees... But they are indeed idiots, not only their failure but their inclination for conspiracy theories are the demonstration of it:
«They firmly believe that Germany is currently run by members of a so-called 'deep state' and that the 'imminent intervention of the 'Alliance', a technically superior secret society of governments, intelligence services and the military of different countries, including the Russian Federation and the United States of America, "will bring the release».
Many of them have a basic military profile, and if we know that this is very popular on the far right, we also know that it is not among the gorillas that the spirit shines.
Obviously in France where the extreme right is the most stupid, see the silliness of the leaders it has chosen with MLPs or Zemmour subservient to the neo-führer Putin, or their daily gargling with conspiracy theories of the same level this "Alliance" story, the risk of a successful coup d'etat is rather low. But they're not just jerks, they're also hateful. Their recurring message is that of hatred, conspiracy has always led to it, today more than ever, and it remains a danger. The conspiratorial message is propaganda à la Goebbels, the facts no longer count, only the fables in support of a rotten ideology. As Rudy Reichstadt said “Conspiracy is real-time revisionism”, no wonder it is found mainly on the far right.
A one-eyed right eye criticizing the one-eyed left eye!
But they're not just jerks, they're also hateful. Their recurring message is indeed that of hatred, quite he who supports this same discourse.

Outrage is the easy way out. What do you mean about the Bataclan? Let loose on a forum against these bloodthirsty morons is useless, when we talk about them it's too late. They must be eliminated preventively, and that is the job of intelligence.
I have described quite a bit against Islamism, and against religions in general, maybe not here because I thought it was a forum dedicated to econology but since this is not the case, that may change.
Islam is the dumbest of religions, as Houellebecq said, and concentrates the worst fundamentalists. If the Islamist ideology is even more absurd and arbitrary than the far-right ideologies, because of even less rationality, what I find is that the Islamists are more effective in action than the far-right -right, no doubt they are less stupid. As for the risks they pose to society, I put them in the same bag.
When faith replaces reason, whether in a religion or in an ideology, the worst crimes are to be expected. Even environmentalism, focused on many beliefs and prejudices, also presents a terrorist risk.
