Populist uprising rocks global order

Paul Joseph Watson - June 24, 2016



The surprise Brexit vote result in the United Kingdom represents a sensational victory for populist politics and makes a Donald Trump presidency more likely.

Brits stunned the world yesterday by choosing to ditch the European Union and reclaim their own sovereignty, a result that has rocked the global order.

It’s also an outcome that could help blaze a trail for Trump all the way to the Oval Office.

“If there’s one conclusion to draw from the Brexit result, it’s that nationalist sentiments may not necessarily be visible to political elites but the right person, with the right cause, can easily bring them out,” writes Brett LoGiurato.

According to Republican pollster Frank Luntz, the result represents a massive populist uprising.

“Populism is rising everywhere as people decide that government does not listen and does not care,” said Luntz.

“But this is even more significant, because Britain has never been the source of populist uprisings like this. If Britain can vote itself out of Europe, America can vote itself in for Trump.”

Nigel Farage also commented on the issue during an appearance on Good Morning Britain.

“There is something happening in American politics that is perhaps a bit of a mirror of what’s happening here, a feeling in much of America, that what happens in Washington is too detached and too remote and Trump is cashing in on some of it,” said Farage, adding, “He must have a chance of winning.”

As the BBC reports, a Brexit win signifies that anti-globalist sentiment is stronger than the political class had bargained for.

I'm waiting for Trump to take credit for getting UK out of EU.

The establishment and MSM in the UK where all for saying in the EU. Their message and support for staying in was relentless on the various media outlets. All the experts were saying that the people will vote for the EU.

Guess what? The people are really not as stupid as the establishment and MSM think they are.

Good for the UK.

I don't want Trump for President.
But it does show, as the OP points out,
how little the Americans trust their government any more.

Soooo, exactly, why 'not' Trump?

Makes no sense, yet it does.

You'd be better off voting for my right sock. Except you can't because it's from Canada... and it needs to be at least 40 years old before it can be eligible to run, so I've got another...

*Checks his watch.*

...39 years, 474 months, 2,056 weeks and 14,442 more days of wear to go before that can happen, so... we gotta wait a long time and Trump'll have blown up the States by then because Congress wouldn't let him rename it to 'The United States of Trumperica.'

Another term to add to my dictionary as it relates to this election:
Trumperica!

I highly doubt that Trump can positively influence people's trust in government, he's just been using their anger and frustration to get a message across and gain support.

That's their hope at least.

Wonder if this election will be a nail-biter,
right to the bitter end?

I am surprised and delighted that the Brits voted out of the cancerous Eu. Hopefully the rest of the Eurape (sic) will wake up.

I am not sure that Trump is more likely to get elected as a result of the EU result, although, it does show that the paucity of leftist/globalist ideas is finally making its way to the ballot box.

I am holding to the hope that people in Australia will also turn away from the self annihilating leftist discourse upheld by the Laberals (Liberal and Labour - the establishment parties), and vote for alternatives to the corrupt corporate/political mainstream...

Actually, one only needs to be 35 years old to run for President of the United States.

Oh... Well then, knock off 5 years, 60 months, 260 weeks and 1,825 days from how long I have to wear my socks for.

I don't know why I thought it was 40.

Hell, you did great. This is America where most people don't even know there is a minimum age to be President.
