The globalists are worried that the nations are waking up to the problems they’ve created:
In the wake of the Brexit vote in Britain and the recent Italian referendum, and with national elections looming in 2017 in the Netherlands, France, and Germany, there is concern that Europe may be inundated by a populist wave, driven in large part by right-wing parties exploiting anti-globalization, anti-immigrant, and anti-Muslim sentiments…
Polls show that people who have a favorable view of the National Front (FN) in France, the Alternative for Germany (AfD) in Germany, and the Party for Freedom in the Netherlands tend to be more negative about immigrants, refugees, and Muslims than their fellow countrymen. In addition, they are more euro-skeptic and more wary of globalization than their compatriots.
While the often nasty, nativist rhetoric of Marine Le Pen, the leader of the FN, or Geert Wilders, the founder of the Dutch Party for Freedom, is certainly key to attracting supporters, the intensity and breadth of right-wing, populist sentiments among party sympathizers — as well as a substantial minority of the general public — is notable in France, Germany, and the Netherlands.
Here’s how Foreign Policy could have worded the first paragraph to be less biased: “Recent elections, including the Brexit vote in Britain and the election of Donald Trump in the United States, seem to indicate the electorates in many countries no longer silently accept the watering down of their culture and increasing threats of terrorism just to accommodate the greatest mass migration in world history. They’ve seen the ruin that globalization and mass immigration has caused, and now they’re saying the push for “diversity” should at least include the idea of a Germany for the Germans, a Britain for the British, a France for the French and an America for Americans.”
The great irony is that in the name of ‘diversity,’ the globalists are really pursuing the lowest common denominator and forcing it onto everyone, everywhere. That’s the antithesis of diversity! Each nation should have the sovereign right to determine who gets to live among them, and to require immigrants adapt to their new home, not the other way around. Such protections cannot be entrusted to what is clearly a transnational elite with no real connection to the people they allegedly represent.
As the article points out, in 2017 there are some key elections in France, Germany, and Holland. We can expect to hear more name-calling as the transnational press attempts to slander concerned, patriotic nationalists as simple “nasty nativists,” in the manner Geert Wilders is called out in this article. While I don’t appreciate a lot of things Donald Trump says off the cuff, I’ll give him this: he seems impervious to being bullied away from his positions by the smears of the media minions. More of us need to follow that example.
What the ‘nasty nativists’ realize is that transporting a person to a new country does not automatically assimilate them into the prevailing culture. And transporting into the West literally millions of people who have no common framework with Western Civilization — indeed, many of whom actively seek its destruction — is simply a recipe for transnational suicide.
And the more “they” try to cram this down our throats, the more response they’re going to get. What all these self-appointed elites need to ask themselves is why people increasingly support strident nationalism instead of their preferred program. In other words, what have they done that makes electing Donald Trump seem a reasonable alternative? They’ll never be that introspective, though. So things are only going to get worse.
…and America belongs to those who built it… not the Juan- or Muhammed-come-latelies.
