From the European Council on Foreign Relations:
“Europe’s liberal order could come crashing down next year. Squeezed from all directions, it may not be able to withstand the pressure. Within Europe, populists on the left and right are trying to roll back the liberal order. This insurgency is being actively backed by Putin’s Russia, and, now, it seems, Trump’s America. The European Union itself risks being an early casualty.
The coming year will be decisive, as key elections are held in France, The Netherlands, and Germany, in which anti-EU populist parties are expected to make headway. The French Presidential elections will be the most critical. Marine Le Pen, who has promised to hold a referendum on France’s EU membership, is expected to win the first round but lose the second. Yet the momentum of the populist surge favours Front National, and in any case, who can trust the polls after Trump’s election? A victory for Le Pen would spell the likely end of the European Union, as it is inconceivable that the EU could survive France’s departure. …”
Sounds good to me.
We’re part of an axis now. The whole liberal world order could come crashing down in Europe in 2017. What a relief that would be after Rotherham, the Bataclan, Nice, Theo van Gogh, the refugee invasion, etc. Imagine being able to speak your mind for a change without living in terror of being arrested by the thought police.
Let’s Make Europe Great Again!
Note: Here in Dixie, we can own firearms and talk as much shit about various European governments as we want to. It is one of the advantages of living here.
