The authenticity of the results of the recent Austrian elections is questionable. People voting from a distance often vote “under supervision”. This is part of a totalitarian plan to enslave European nations.

The new Austrian president hates his own country. Van Der Bellen declared once in his campaign that “anyone who loves Austria is s**t”.

Disproof

President van der Bellen never said that. The sentence was on a poster created by a local branch of the youth branch of the Greens party. The party itself distanced itself from the campaign (bit.ly/1X7UMls), .
