The Long Fight Over Brexit: What Was It Really All About?
Brexit means the 'British Exit' from the European Union. The movement to leave the EU began in 2012 after the EU announced its plans to morph into a United States of Europe, complete with a federal government, which would make the 28 member countries such as Great Britain the equivalent of American states, like Wyoming. However, with a significant difference: The EU is to be ruled by unelected 'experts,' bureaucrats not accountable to the citizenry. The progressive dream. This is part of the march towards a New World Order of Global Government, which necessarily entails the elimination of all the world’s nation-states.
Brexit: Leavers vs. Remainers
Brexit supporters believe in national sovereignty; in an independent, self-governing, democratic Britain with borders. Moreover, for the people within those borders to make their own laws and culture.
They derive deep pleasure and satisfaction in being British, love Britain, and believe they should have every right to be proud of and protect their history and heritage. They want freedom of speech, freedom from political correctness, and an end to mass immigration from the Third World.
The greatest fear of the cosmopolitan elites of Europe is that the British leaving the EU will lead to other nations going as well. They are determined to stop Brexit at all costs.
The EU is a conspiracy of glitterati, comprised of social engineers who deny that ordinary people should have political power and a say in the life of their countries. As Theodore Dalrymple puts it, “The philosopher-kings of the EU do not want any damned-fool population getting in the way of the implementation of their wisdom.”
The European Union
The EU is determined to regulate all aspects of the daily lives of the 513 million souls who live in its member states. However, a promise was made to the British People before they joined the EU: "The vast majority of men and women in the country will never directly feel the impact of EU-made law at all. In the conduct of their daily lives, they will not need to have regard to any of the provisions of that law.”
There are now 12,000 EU laws on the books that were made in secret – and plenty more to come – that have been superimposed upon the ordinary citizens of the United Kingdom.
The Brexit Vote
In June 2016, Brexit was put to the vote. The political elites were hard against it but not overly anxious because their polling showed it would be handily defeated. The polls were wrong. More citizens of the United Kingdom voted to leave the EU than had ever before voted for anything or anyone. Outside of London, every region in England and Wales overwhelmingly chose to quit the EU. This was the most massive mandate in British history.
As soon as the results were known, the ruling classes of Britain and Europe went to work to undermine the clear will of the British People. The anti-Brexiters planned to betray the will of the people in the world’s oldest and most fabled democracy by putting up roadblocks and using delay tactics in the hopes that Brexit would never happen. Richard Dawkins says these delays are to provide time for older people to die off.
A billion news stories have denounced Brexit, and other populist movements across Europe, as “the hate and racism of ignorant losers,” just as they do President Trump and his supporters. The talking point pushed by the Left is that populism today is “the last stand of old white men soon to be supplanted.” However, 20% of young people support such movements across Europe; and 50% of those age 35-44 voted for Brexit, as did 33% of minorities.
Brexit supporters want to protect their jobs. And preserve the way of life in their homeland—what makes it Britain and not someplace else.
They want to take their country back from their 'betters': International bankers, multinational corporations, intellectuals, university professors, journalists, entertainers, bureaucrats and career politicians (73% of MPs voted against Brexit). Their betters have responded, “You cannot leave the European Union. We are in control. We don’t give a damn about people like you. You are piss ants. You are beneath us.”
The Virtue of Nationalism
In his 2018 book, The Virtue of Nationalism, Yoram Hazony wrote: “The calumnies and denunciation heaped upon the English public and its elected leadership in the wake of Britain’s determination to seek independence from the European Union are an unmistakable warning to the West as a whole: The unification of Europe is not one legitimate political option among others. It is the only legitimate opinion to which a decent person can subscribe.
“It was alleged that only the aged supported exiting the European Union, thereby disenfranchising the young; or that only the uneducated had supported it, thereby diluting the say of those who really do know better; and so forth. These angry pronouncements were then followed by the demand that the British public's preference be repealed -- by a second referendum, or by an act of Parliament, or by closed-door bargaining with the Europeans. Anything, so long as the one legitimate opinion should prevail.”
Britain's Economy has Boomed Despite the Gloomy Predictions
Before the Brexit vote, dire predictions were loudly broadcast to scare the British people. If Brexit won, a great depression would instantly ensue, and half a million jobs would evaporate. Inflation and interest rates would run through the roof. Within days, supermarkets would be out of food; medicine would become scarce; traffic would come to a standstill. None of that happened.
Instead, more jobs were created, and the economy boomed. The number of people working is at a record high. Furthermore, while before the Brexit vote half of all new jobs created went to foreigners, since Brexit won almost all new positions have gone to British workers. Unemployment has fallen to a 45-year low. Wage growth has been strong, especially for those in the lowest paid jobs. The UK for the first time is now considered the best place on the planet to invest.
Britain has recently posted a record budget surplus, despite continuing to pay the EU one billion pounds per month for the pleasure of membership in a superstate they were supposed to have left by now.
It is the other countries in the EU that are in the economic doldrums. Britain has become a land of opportunity. Technology, engineering, transportation and logistics, health and medicine, are all booming. Jaguar Land Rover announced it would invest hundreds of millions of pounds in advanced manufacturing across the realm.
Brexit Day Came - and Went
March 29th, 2019 was supposed to be Brexit Day, the day Great Britain would once again become a sovereign nation independent of the EU. A clean break was supposed to happen, according to the will of the voters. The elites have so far weaseled out of it.
As Mr. Dalrymple says, “The political class, from the very first, overwhelmingly opposed Brexit—for some, the eventual prospect of a tax-free, expense-jeweled job in Brussels was deeply alluring—but found itself in a dilemma, since it could not openly deny the majority’s expressed wish.”
George Soros and Tony Blair have teamed up to stymie Brexit. They want a new referendum so that this time “people can reach the right conclusion” to remain in the EU.
Just as in the election of President Trump, sore losers deny the legitimacy of the will of the people and work to undermine the vote with overt propaganda and covert subversion. Blair and Soros declare that open borders are seen by the advanced 'open-minded' sorts such as themselves as awesome, but to the backward 'closed-minded' they are a threat to fear—for no good reason.
Prime Minister Theresa May has pretended to negotiate an exit from the EU, an exit against which she is dead set. The political class wants to kill it and might succeed. If the voters get it wrong, ignore the voters or make them vote again until they get it right.
Mass Immigration from the Third World
I can think of no issue in Britain where so vast a chasm exists between the will of voters and the actions of their elected representatives as immigration.
In 2002, it was said that white Britons would become a minority in their own capital city within a decade unless immigration were sharply curtailed. Just making this simple statement was assailed by the media as 'scaremongering' 'racist' 'Islamophobia' and 'fascist.' However, it was the truth, because today they are a minority in London. When did speaking the unvarnished truth become something only 'extremists' do?
The British People overwhelmingly opposed the immigration policies of their own government in every poll taken from 1948 to the present by about four to one. It made no difference to their elected leaders.
When the Labour Party took charge in 1997, things really accelerated. It opened the borders to everyone in the world. In each of Tony Blair’s years as Prime Minister, immigration was five times what it had been before he took office. Why? To import new voters that would dependably vote for the Labour Party. Also, according to Tony Blair’s speechwriter, it was to “Rub the Right’s Nose in Diversity.”
The Minister of Immigration under Blair said that all people from around the world could come and live in Britain because any restraint on open borders was 'racist.'
This was a cultural war being waged on the British people using migrants as a weapon. The worst part is the insistence of importing millions of people who have—for over 1,000 years—been the historical enemies of Europe and are hostile to the culture and way of life of the welcoming nations. People who do not share the worldview of their hosts, have no desire to blend in and are not grateful to be saved from penury but resentful.
From the start, this issue has been filled with lies and propaganda and the demonization of any opposition. In the early days, the public was assured that migrants were 'guest-workers' who would soon go back home. Not true. Once they step foot in Britain, they are there to stay.
From the 1950s until today the numbers of immigrants coming, legally and illegally, have been lied about—vastly underreported. The official figures might be only half the real number.
When anyone dares object to any of it, they are 'racist bigots' whose employment should be terminated. The lies include the constant claim that immigrants have benefitted the economy when in fact they cost the British taxpayer hundreds of billions of dollars.
The British People never wanted their society transformed in this way. They have been systematically disenfranchised. Why? Why has the new nobility now running things been so at variance with the Will of the People?
Recently, 67% of the British public said immigration had been a bad thing for Britain—11% said "a good thing." They can see their nation's sense of identity being vanquished and their public services strained.
Besides importing terrorists, a crime wave has been unleashed by migrants on the native population. Not generally spoken is the idea many 'progressive' elites have that white Britons DESERVE what they are getting because of what their ancestors did back in the days of the British Empire. Revenge, in other words. Deliberate destruction of Britain and all of Europe because they must be punished for the sins of their fathers.
It is hard not to notice the vindictiveness with which the newfangled aristocracy and their media supporters determine to crush the concerns of the average working class in Britain or elsewhere in Europe. What we have here is vast societal change being FORCED on the public against their will.
The people were lied to that they would neither lose jobs to immigrants nor would their real wages, or standard of living go down. The economic benefit of immigration goes solely to the migrants, who gain the use of public facilities and a public treasury they have not paid for or into. They get far higher wages than in their homeland and send much of it back to foreign lands in remittances—taking it out of the local economy for good. To mention these simple facts—to tell the truth—gets one labeled an 'extremist.'
Whether we are talking about Brexit, Salvini in Italy, other populist movements across Europe, or the election of President Trump, we are witnessing a grassroots protest, led by native-born middle class and working class white people opposed to themselves and their children being systematically disdained, ridiculed, and disenfranchised because of their skin color by the anti-Christian, multicultural, globalist, godless gentry who run their countries—elites who fully intend to replace them with people from the Third World by advancing open borders policies; elites who want to kick those to the curb who have lived and contributed to their countries for generations or even centuries.
Globalists vs. Nationalists
The Left had a fit when President Trump said, “I am not a Globalist. I am a Nationalist.” They had a fit because they are Globalists: they want a World Without Borders, a world without nations, where there are no Americans only “Citizens of the World.”
I have three dictionaries and here is how they define the word 'Nationalist:’ 1) “A person who advocates political independence for a country [as in independent from the United Nations or the EU].” 2) “A person who strongly identifies with their own nation and vigorously supports its interests.” 3) “A person with great love for their nation.”
There is nothing sinister about it.
A nation is a group of people with a common identity and shared loyalties that they do not share with others. A shared history creates a type of kinship. A nation is a stable and distinct community with strong bonds—often sharing common descent, religion, culture, art, heroes, traditions, customs, rites, boundaries, texts, and language—who feel themselves to be one people that identifies with their forefathers.
That is why Globalists promote unlimited migration of Third World Peoples into the successful countries – to rip apart those bonds that tie nations together.
