I don't think the majority of educated people are foolish enough to believe in fascism and nationalism. Rather enlightenment and the sciences are what is valued, and history has proven that liberal thoughts make for vastly better societies. It's unfortunate that Europe still has its share of cowardly nationalist bumpkins who still want to be afraid of differences while living in their inbred homogenous villages.
I can't speak for all of Europe, but nationalist sympathizers are actually more common in areas with higher concentrations of immigrants here in Sweden. Because people around those areas get to experience all the issues that follows first-hand, while the people living in "inbred homogenous villages" tend to vote left or pro immigration.
It's easy to dismiss these people as bigots when you don't have to deal with the things that they have to go through daily, yourself. It's also easy to dismiss them as uneducated just because they don't have top-of-the-line professions and can't afford to move into safe, homogenous villages.
With that said, I'm in no way trying to defend m0ney here. He has proved himself to be one of few actual bigots several times over in this thread.
