Not the best article, but I do think it's important to keep people updated about this kind of shit around the world.

With the recent Federal and Regional elections in Belgium, the far-right Vlaams Belang (Flemish Interest/Concern) shocked the mainstream press and "traditional" parties with a score of 12% in the Federal elections and 18% in the Regional ones. People who were actually paying attention were less surprised, but that's neither here nor there.

Part of this surge towards the right is a "youth organization" called Schild & Vrienden (Shield and Friends, a reference to a historical battle claimed by Flemish nationalists) who are basically copying alt-right tactics that have seen success in other parts of the world, most notably the US.
