According to Dr. Turley, widespread unrest in Europe is about cultural security, as pushback against globalism continues:
Vlaams Belang, the long-persecuted Flemish party, deserves credit for its years-long, uphill battle against those in Belgium who have called them the usual names, erected a cordon sanitaire around their members in Parliament, and have generally excoriated their existence.
Gates of Vienna has been a fan of the Flemish for many years, but we never thought they’d win. And now they have scored a major victory with the resignation of Prime Minister Charles Michel.
As Dr Turley points out about the American electorate, Hillary attracted those who thought the economy was primary, while Donald Trump won the culture crowd. [And as you can see from the shenanigans in Washington, the Old Guard is digging in on this.]
That Migration Pact is not going to last, but it won’t go quietly. Just look at what is being said by Europe’s leaders. This is from late November, where nationalism is equated with treason:
Merkel: “Nation states must today be prepared to give up their sovereignty”
No this wasn’t something Adolf Hitler said many years ago, this is what German Chancellor Angela Merkel told attendants at an event by the Konrad Adenauer Foundation in Berlin on Wednesday.
“In an orderly fashion of course,” Merkel went on to say. She even went so far as to condemn those in her own Christian Democratic Union (CDU) party who think Germany should withdraw from the controversial UN migration pact:
“There were [politicians]who believed that they could decide when these agreements are no longer valid because they are representing The People”.
“[But] the people are individuals who are living in a country, they are not a group who define themselves as the [German] people,” she stressed.
She has previously accused critics of the UN Global Compact for Safe and Orderly Migration of not being patriotic because, “That is not patriotism, because patriotism is when you include others in German interests and accept win-win situations”.
Her words echo recent comments by the beleaguered French President Emmanuel Macron who stated in a Remembrance Day speech that “patriotism is the exact opposite of nationalism [because]nationalism is treason,” which successfully reduced his approval rating, yet again.
Macron, who has much of his country in highly visible protests at the moment, told the Bundestag that “the Franco-German couple [has]the obligation not to let the world slip into chaos and to guide it on the road to peace”.
“Europe must be stronger… and win more sovereignty,” he went on to demand, just as Merkel has, that EU member states surrender national sovereignty to Brussels over “foreign affairs, migration, and development” as well as giving “an increasing part of our budgets and even fiscal resources”.
