Much More at Stake Than Just Exiting the Establishment
Nigel Farage, a bold and uncompromising critic of the European Union, has long been a thorn in the side of the insiders pushing for world government. He has had the audacity to stand up repeatedly in its official chambers and call out the other unelected bloviating members of the so-called European Parliament, exposing their real purposes behind the EU.
When he appeared onstage with Donald Trump on Tuesday night in Jackson, Mississippi, in front of 15,000 noisy supporters, the mainstream media didn’t quite know what to make of it. First, said the New York Times, it was “unexpected” that a foreign politician would appear supporting a campaign that made “America First” and “Make American Great Again” its grand theme. Yahoo reporter Holly Bailey called it a “somewhat surreal rally,” not understanding the underlying theme: Americans are tired of being pushed around by the Washington establishment, and want to breathe the fresh air of freedom without having to gain permission from a central government first.
Farage expressed the parallels between his party’s successful campaign (he just stepped down from leading the UK’s Independence Party but will retain his seat in the European Parliament) to rid itself of the noxious and freedom-threatening EU in June, and Trump’s campaign to exit the Washington political establishment. All the polls going into the election showed “remain” to win, going away. When all the votes were counted, however, “exit” won the day. Said Farage:
You have a fantastic opportunity here. You can go out, you can beat the pollsters, you can beat the commentators, you can beat Washington, and you’ll do it by doing what we did for Brexit in Britain.
