Why are Eastern Europeans so based? -

This will be a bit long but I feel like typing right now.

Eastern Europeans are very anti-communist because they lived through it.
It's not like the West where they only read about it and it might seem good on paper.
My grandfather, for example, was a World War II veteran but he dared to fight the Nazis in a Polish army called the AK which refused to work together with the Russians so, after the Nazis fucked off and the Soviets took over in 1945, he was imprisoned and tortured (beaten up, sprayed with a fire hose, waterboarded, all the good stuff) and he was one of many.
With shit like this happening routinely in Eastern Europe in the 20th century, not many will be fond of neo-communism/socialism.
They're also not very fond of the EU because it's lead by Germany and we don't feel like taking orders from Germany anymore.
We don't want mass immigration because we have centuries worth of foreign nations "migrating" into ours and fucking shit up.
We're not that against non-straight people (Poland even had a trans member of the parliament for 5 years and the mayor of one of the biggest and most prosperous cities is openly gay, I don't see that shit in Western countries, they just talk about how progressive they are) but we're against LGBT which is recognized by many as a foreign ideology that doesn't really bring any benefits.

Westerners don't get it and most of them don't learn history so they just treat us as socially backwards.

As for the Neo Nazis in Eastern Europe... yeah, that is a problem but those are literally the dumbest assholes.
I had the misfortune of growing up around them and none of them, literally none of them, had even a high school education, some of them only did the required amount of education (which in Poland is 6 grades, the parents are mandated to have their kids pass at least 6 grades so that everyone can at the very least read and write) and zero useful skills.
Most of the ones I grew up around are either in prison, dead or involved in criminal activities.

Also, the education in Eastern Europe is very solid, that's why people in places like the UK are mad that we're "stealing their jobs".

Eastern Europeans are drawn to the far-right because far-right politics appeals to malcontent reactionaries who have nothing going for them, just as it does in the West. The only difference is that Eastern Europe has a lot more of these people due to the prevailing political and economic situation throughout the region.

It's easy to be taken in by ideologies which espouse the primal importance of national pride when you have little else to be proud of, and Eastern Europeans largely don't: their economies are stagnant and oligarchic, they're in demographic decline, they have a massive brain drain, their nations are heavily dependent upon the West, and their entire history is a perpetual succession of defeat, dictatorship, and insurrection.

Any claim that Eastern Europe is "superior" to the West is absolutely laughable, and easily rubbished by the simple observation that so many Eastern Europeans are desperate to migrate to Western Europe.

I'm not sure where the idea that eastern Europe is economically stagnant comes from. The eastern countries have much higher GDP growth rates because they're coming from a low starting point of having been ruled by communists for decades. It's actually the south of Europe (Greece, Italy) that's relatively stagnant. Hungary and Romania were growing at 4-5% annually before the virus hit.

The mass waves of westward migration in Europe were mostly in the 2000s, when the income gap was much bigger than it is now. Since then the rate has slowed.

They're poor. Progressive bullshit is pushed by pampered people who have no real problems.
That's probably part of it, but interestingly the conservative governments in those countries have often grown more dominant as the countries' wealth increased over time. I'd put it more down to the legacy of communism after the cold war, which of course led to the poverty issue in the first place.

It's called the European Union. Giving money to oligarchs so that they can dictate the policies of their client states.
