Meanwhile, politicians validate such groups by doing precisely nothing to curtail them and refusing to condemn them ("_very fine people on both sides_" and so forth). Far-right political parties have gained worrying footholds in numerous European countries, running on populist platforms of Islamophobia and anti-immigration, playing on peoples' fears of the Other, exploiting the dearth of facts in sociopolitical discourse, and trading in disinformation...
