Glad Tidings B4 Xmas? ‘Nervous Whispers in EU Corridors!’
Always encouraging to hear of such things as ‘nervous whispers in EU corridors..
….fears of a tsunami of nativist populism sweeping through Europe in 2017 – in France, Italy, the Netherlands and beyond.’
If the Commissars in Brussels are getting fretty, it’s just about GOT to be to a good thing.
The EuroCommissars are the common enemy of every patriot and democrat in Europe and if they’re ill at ease, it’s time, surely, to pop a cork and stand by for celebration.
And there’s cause, also, to cheer if the BBC manages to produce anything that’s not riddled with bias!
Not that the piece we’re talking about, by Katya Adler – http://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-38180629 – is bias-free.
Herr Hofer, of the FPO Freedom Party, is carelessly ( or maliciously) dubbed ‘far-right’ while his opponent, the red/greenVan der Bellen, is not identified as a far-left ‘green fascist’ who resents the very idea of letting ordinary people given access to the levers of power.
All this ‘far’ stuff depends entirely on where you stand. and journos who take seriously the principle of impartial reporting should eschew such prejudicial language.
Yet Ms. Adler recognises one indisputable truth.
The so-called populists are growing in influence and strength because there’s a yawning gap in the political market.
They are able to say to voters “We will actually listen to you.”
And that is the glaring contrast between the Brussels elite, who fear voters – witness their engrained hostility to referenda…
….and, if referenda don’t deliver the required knee-jerk obedience to the EUSSR’s wishes, to the electorate’s decision!
Ms. Adler also reveals for her BBC audience some truths that much of the media prefers to conceal.
I don’t mean the obvious truths that pro-Hofer Austrians are not all a screaming mob of far-right extremists, when in fact they are overwhelmingly solid citizens who have seen their country dreadfully damaged…
….by the rotten coalition government’s – the bloated, self-entitlement-oozing parties of the centre– refusal to prevent Mama Stasi’s tsunami marching through Austria.
But more, like the fact that young Frenchmen with a North African background hold visible positions in Marine’s Front Nationale.
This crystal-clear evidence that Marine Le Pen is open to GOOD citizens of any skin colour and is hostile only to those alien brutes in the banlieues…
….whose allegiance is to a sectarian ideology absolutely inimical to France, is rarely seen or heard on the ‘mainstream’ media.
Yet perhaps the most pleasing part comes when Adler puts inverted commas around the nonsense word bandied about by the left-lib clique whenever the patriot upsurge is mentioned – “populists” are so popular, and perhaps work on serving their electorate far better.
They could hardly serve the electorate worse than the arrogant condescension of the Eurocrats! Liar Juncker And ‘EU Rule Number One’ – Down With Democracy!
By the middle of next week, we will know if Hofer has won, and, perhaps an equally desirable prize, if Red Renzi has had his cultural marxist fire quenched in Italy’s referendum.
Though I wish the tormented Germans could also be given a referendum on an issue of consequence, namely the shameless ingratitude of the horde Merkel unleashed on them!
ANGRY migrants waiting to claim asylum in the promised land of Europe have bemoaned the lack of comforts at shelters…
Never mind, The Vixen’s day of reckoning will surely come!
Let’s just hope for two early Christmas presents, one from Vienna, one from Rome.
Which reminds me, time to dig out the tree and get it ready.
