George Soros Pens Op-Ed Calling Anti-EU Sentiments A “NIGHTMARE”
Apparently it’s a bad thing to support national pride and oppose elitist rule. Or so says one of the elitist billionaires who would be king.
Of course we’re talking about George Soros, owner of the Democrat party and sponsor of global Marxism. Soros personally wrote an op-ed for something called “Project Syndicate” that was picked up by Market Watch.
He starts off by lamenting the fall of the Soviet Union:
“Europe is sleepwalking into oblivion, and the people of Europe need to wake up before it is too late. If they don’t, the European Union will go the way of the Soviet Union in 1991. Neither our leaders nor ordinary citizens seem to understand that we are experiencing a revolutionary moment, that the range of possibilities is very broad, and that the eventual outcome is thus highly uncertain.”
He then talks about the upcoming European Union parliamentary election, and how the anti EU forces are stronger than ever.
Soros says that Germany is the dominant country in the EU, and he fears that the Alternative für Deutschland (AfD) party is taking root and will be able to over run the pro EU Green Party:
The EU’s dominant country is Germany, and the dominant political alliance in Germany — between the Christian Democratic Union (CDU) and the Bavaria-based Christian Social Union (CSU) — has become unsustainable.
The alliance worked as long as there was no significant party in Bavaria to the right of the CSU. That changed with the rise of the extremist Alternative für Deutschland (AfD). In last September’s länder elections, the CSU’s result was its worst in over six decades, and the AfD entered the Bavarian Parliament for the first time.
The AfD’s rise removed the raison d’être of the CDU-CSU alliance. But that alliance cannot be broken up without triggering new elections that neither Germany nor Europe can afford. As it is, the current ruling coalition cannot be as robustly pro-European as it would be without the AfD threatening its right flank.
For some reason, Soros has hopes that the Brexit deal will eventually fall apart:
But the collusion between Corbyn and May has aroused opposition in both parties, which in the case of Labour is bordering on rebellion. The day after Corbyn and May met, May announced a program to aid impoverished pro-Brexit Labour constituencies in the north of England. Corbyn is now accused of betraying the pledge he made at Labour’s September 2018 party conference to back a second Brexit referendum if holding an election is not possible.
The public is also becoming aware of the dire consequences of Brexit. The chances that May’s deal will be rejected on Feb. 14 are growing by the day. That could set in motion a groundswell of support for a referendum or, even better, for revoking Britain’s Article 50 notification.
Soros seems to be shocked that the country that bears the biggest “migrant” and “refugee” burden, Italy, is also rebelling against the EU:
The EU made a fatal mistake in 2017 by strictly enforcing the Dublin Agreement, which unfairly burdens countries like Italy where migrants first enter the EU. This drove Italy’s predominantly pro-European and pro-immigration electorate into the arms of the anti-European League party and Five Star Movement in 2018. The previously dominant Democratic Party is in disarray.
As a result, the significant portion of the electorate that remains pro-European has no party to vote for. There is, however, an attempt underway to organize a united pro-European list. A similar reordering of party systems is happening in France, Poland, Sweden, and probably elsewhere.
Perhaps he’s getting senile, as he closes the diatribe by encouraging people keep Europe’s best interest in mind. Maybe he doesn’t understand that Europe’s best interests are in diametric opposition to his own, and the interests of the EU, especially with regard to the flood of “migrants.” He refers to the anti EU crows as the “enemies” of Europe, and, once again, makes it sound like the fall of the USSR was a bad thing:
It is difficult to see how the pro-European parties can emerge victorious from the election in May unless they put Europe’s interests ahead of their own.
One can still make a case for preserving the EU in order radically to reinvent it. But that would require a change of heart in the EU. The current leadership is reminiscent of the politburo when the Soviet Union collapsed — continuing to issue ukazes as if they were still relevant.
The first step to defending Europe from its enemies, both internal and external, is to recognize the magnitude of the threat they present. The second is to awaken the sleeping pro-European majority and mobilize it to defend the values on which the EU was founded.
Otherwise, the dream of a united Europe could become the nightmare of the 21st century.
So there ya have it. Not wanting to give up your identity and working for the best interest of yourself and Europe is somehow working against the best interest of Europe. Not wanting to be overrun by Islamic migrants is against your own interest. Not wanting to be ruled by a small, powerful elite is a bad thing. War is peace, ignorance is strength, freedom is slavery.
