Kurz…Europe’s Opportunist. Forming a coalition with far-left Greens crosses the line.

Sebastian Kurz will do anything to sit on a throne…any throne.

The V4 Report once bought into Kurz in 2017; we will not make the same mistake again.

While Kurz is “serviceable” on migration (i.e., V4 can use him when applicable in this area), the leaders of Visegrad should steer clear of the young slickster’s rhetoric regarding his self-appointment as the “bridge builder” between the East and West.

As the FPO found out, Kurz is an opportunist and will use anyone or any issue in order to advance his own career, which is government based. Kurz, like Andrej Plenkovic of Croatia, wants to be a big player in Brussels.

The bridge Kurz wants to build sounds like a ‘booby trap’ for Visegrad…to embrace EU Solidarity at any cost, even if this means surrendering one’s sovereignty to the Vera Jourova-types of Brussels.

He is a loyal ally of Manfred Weber and the EPP. Thus, Kurz and his party supported Article7 resolutions against both Hungary and Poland (while Kurz was busy charming Andrej Babiš in Prague).

Moreover, the V4 Report questions any politician that shouts loudly at home about securing the external borders, but failed to support Matteo Salvini’s efforts in Italy.

In fact, Kurz joined with Weber (EPP Fraternity) to distance himself from Salvini and the right, but apparently has no issues forming coalitions with the radical, pro migration Greens.

This tells us that he is not serious about stopping illegal migration but only finds the talk convenient for his campaigns.

Forming a coalition with Greens crosses a line that should never be crossed. Even if Kurz has the upper hand in Austria, he and others (EPP) are giving legitimacy to the far-left Greens and strengthening the party across Europe for the future.

In the long run, this is not how one wins the battle for the Soul of Europe, but then again, Kurz just wants to sit on top of a throne…any throne. 🤨
