‘Open Democracy?’ “Pseuds’ Corner,” More Like!


That ‘Open Democracy’ gang went paranoid a month ago, all uptight about the appealing prospect of a Le Pen presidency in 2020.

That’s an outcome devoutly to be wished for, as Le Muppet Macron continues lip service only to controlling the migrant menace.

But the odd O.D. crew are STILL banging on about Marine…

….with a weird analysis of her campaign style from some geezerette who begins her warble with this, a quote from another warbling geezer.

Political scientist Benjamin Moffitt argues that populism is, above all, a performative repertoire which has capitalized on the intensive mediatization of social and political life.”

Seriously?

That’s just high-falutin’ hogwash!

Can’t the klutz express himself in plain English?

However, he obviously realises that nobody could possibly divine a meaning from that initial stanza, so he has another go!

.” It is a stylized performance which conveys a thin – but highly effective – ideology of antipathy to elites and claims to represent “the people.”

Ding-bat!

Yes, Marine’s performance has style.

It’s downright classy.

But there’s nothing ‘thin’ about Marine’s SUBSTANTIAL disdain for elites.

Muppet Macron’s Mock-Consultation -“We’ll Only Talk About What WE Value!” 

….those ‘consultations’ in which the French people would be given the chance to direct the destiny of their beloved France…

..

..as long as they didn’t dare challenge the ideology of the ruling elite!

If I were you, I wouldn’t waste time wading through the Open Democracy babble, though feel free if you have absolutely nothing better to do.

Be warned, though – it’s penned by a sociologist, Dorit Geva, attached to the notorious Sorosoid Central European University, with a very peculiar, actually unwholesomely obsessive, focus on ‘gender’ ( which of course means ‘sex’ ) so it’s basically worthless.

But that little extract above may be useful when Bojo tries to string Brits along with the ‘consultation’ broached before the recent election, which I’m willing to bet will be loaded with the elite’s chosen ‘experts.’

UK Tax-Funded Climate Talk-Shop? Will BOTH Sides Be Heard? 

Anything to avoid proper democracy.

It’s not a new trick…

….so the people – in Britain as in France – should stand ready to call it out.

Elites are not some phantasm conjured up by patriot ‘populists.’

They are real.

They are the Enemy Within!
