'The EU Parliament opened  this week to chaos. Catalan separatists protested the decision to bar their elected representatives from the chamber;  members of Britain’s Brexit Party turned their backs while the rest of the Parliament stood at attention for the union’s anthem, Beethoven’s “Ode to Joy.” The disorder upstaged what was perhaps the most significant event of the day: the debut of a new alliance among Europe’s leading far-right nationalist groups, who go beyond the specific goal of taking down Brussels, and beyond Europe. The group is supported by none other than Steve Bannon, the self-proclaimed éminence grise of the global far right. Nationalist leaders pop up at rallies around the world to support their local ideological cousins.'

The bottom line:" The danger posed by nationalist internationalism is real. The far right does not always need to form stable alliances, encompassing all areas of politics, to be destructive. Even pragmatic international cooperation on selected points can be enough. They do agree on enough things to do damage: which enemies to confront, which institutions to weaken, which values to assault. We dismiss the internationalization of right-wing politics at our own peril."
