SPIEGEL: Alexis Tsipras Among the “10 Most Dangerous Politicians of Europe”

Posted by in Politics

Alexis Tsipras, leader of left-wing SYRIZA and leader of main opposition party is one of “10 most dangerous politicians in Europe of euro crisis”, if we want to believe German weekly DER SPIEGEL. According to German weekly the “Ten agitators to bring the European project is in serious danger,” are “profiteers from the crisis as those politicians try to gain political advantage with cheap populism.”

Alexis Tsipras is No 2 in the list of most dangerous men in Europe, after German Markus Soeder.

Alexis Tsipras: chairman of the Greek left-wing alliance “Syriza”: His most recent proposal was as follows: The Greek government should simply deny discussions with the so-called troika of the IMF, European Commission and European Central Bank. According to his own words, the ongoing privatization of state enterprises should be “criminalized”. He has been called “the most dangerous man in Europe”, since he leads the radical left in Greece and is driving the governments before him. For what purpose? Tsipras builds his arguments saying that one can throw Greece form the euro are – and therefore he focuses on fundamental opposition.

Tsipras is not alone on SPIEGEL’s list but he is the only one from the left political spectrum. the rest ar epoliticians from right to far-right: , Italian Silvio Berlusconi, Bavarian Markus Soeder, French Marine Le Pen, Finnish Timo Soini, German Alexander Dobrindt, British Nigel Farage, Austrian Heinz-Christian Strache, Dutch Geert Wilders, Ungarian Viktor Orbán.

 Populist meets Populist

Markus Söder, Bavarian Minister of Finance: The CSU-politician earned a reputation as Europe-fright: “An example must be made at Athens, showing the euro zone can also show teeth “Bavaria’s finance minister told [yellow press]”Bild am Sonntag “. “At some point everyone has to move out from Mama, and the Greeks are now so far,” he said further adding that Germany was the mother of Greece.

No, German Chancellor Angela Merkel and Economy Minister Philip Roesler, as well as EU unelected presidents like Jose Manuel Barroso, Herman van Rompuy & Co are not danger for Europe as such. They’re are dangerous and a threat just for the EU citizens….

PS And if we do not laugh today, we have a whole night ahead to cry bitter tears.
