Why Hillary Clinton Wants You To Like The EU

Why Hillary Clinton Wants You To Like The EU, by Bill Wirtz.

After the UK Brexit, politician Nigel Farage appeared at a Donald Trump rally in Mississippi. Hillary Clinton lashed out at Farage and the campaign to the leave the European Union. She accused the opposition to the European Union of “having fuelled anti-immigrant sentiments” and “being a brand of extreme nationalism.” …

Sure Hillary. Britons wanting to wanting to make their own laws in their own parliament instead of having them made by unaccountable bureaucrats in Brussels is “extreme.”

[T]here are many reasons why people like Hillary Clinton wants us to like the European Union: it embodies in itself all the aspects of government growth and overreach that mainstream politicians are pushing for. …

The EU power structure is at times so complicated, containing numerous presidents, vice-presidents, co-presidents, permanent presidents, rotating presidencies, chairmen, and high commissioners that it’s difficult to really keep track of who is in charge and who decided on what. This has made the centralization of power very easy for politicians. …

The EU was sold as a free-trade organization, not the dictatorship of the bureaucrats that it has become. The real problem for the global elite is of course contagion: if the British can just do it, why can’t we?

It’s more likely that what really concerns mainstream American politicians about the Brexit vote is the fact it sends the message that political institutions can be decentralized, and decisions made at a local level. After all, if a member country of the EU can leave in a peaceful, democratic fashion, it stands to reason an American state could do the same.
