Tea parties and a Party for Freedom

From The Economist’s Democracy in America blog:

THE two most consistently fascinating, and most consistently infuriating, email lists I subscribe to are those of Tea Party Nation and Geert Wilders’ Party for Freedom (PVV). One thing that’s extremely interesting about reading both lists is how similar, on a formal level, their strategies and appeals are. For example, yesterday I got an email from the PVV relaying the questions put to a government minister by one of the PVV’s members of parliament, regarding a scandal over an Amsterdam Muslim-oriented community organisation, Asri, that ran a local get-out-the-vote campaign including the message: “Asri calls on everyone to go vote on March 2. The future, or back to 1939.”
