PostThe EU is "Liberal and Democratic"? Nonsense (Nigel Jones, UK, 07/21/18 7:07 pm)
Astonishingly, John Eipper called the EU "liberal" and "democratic."
John, John, John. Have you never read any of the umpteen posts I have filed on this subject over several years?
Have I been completely wasting my time? Posts in which I have demonstrated time after time that this monstrous perversion is the total antithesis of liberalism, and is actually anti-democratic?
Well, if you don't believe me, perhaps you have glanced at a newspaper or telescreen over the past twenty years. Did you notice what has happened to Greece, Cyprus, Spain, and now Italy? Have elections in Poland, Hungary, Austria, the Czech Republic, Slovakia and Slovenia crossed your radar? Have you marked the rise of the FN in France and AFD in Gemany? Will you look at the autumn elections in Sweden, that former bastion of social democracy? In all these countries so-called populist parties are rising in revolt against the EU policy of race replacement to suit global capital; of mass youth unemployment, and of the forced abolition of Europe's ancient nations by a faceless Soviet-style bureaucracy.
Fortunately, the parties favoured by Carmen Negrín and her ilk are done and dusted. The days of leftist liberalism are done. The old order is rapidly changing, and, to quote Bob Dylan, you had better get out of the way if you can't accept that, for the European times really are a-changin'. Not before time.
JE comments: But of course, Nigel, I've read all your posts--everyone else's too. Yes, Europe's pendulum is swinging to the right at present, but is there any reason to believe this is definitive? Take, for starters, Spain, which has returned to a Socialist premier.
