Putin has actively sought to destabilize the EU by supporting nationalist, populist parties like the League. In May, the Austrian gov’t fell after a video revealed the leader of Austria’s R wing discussing public contracts in exchange for RU campaign aid. nytimes.com/2019/07/10/wor…
“Funding to an Italian political party by a foreign state is illegal,” said Emanuele Fiano, member of Parliament who called on Mr. Salvini to appear before the Lower House to explain the financial negotiation heard on the tape.

“It’s also dangerous to know that an Italian party has a contract of collaboration with a foreign state,” he added in an interview.

Two former prime ministers from the Democratic Party also called on Wednesday for an official inquiry.

The Left’s explosive, prolonged rage at the election of President Donald Trump on Nov. 8, 2016, gave new life to the ultra-violent leftist movement known as Antifa. 2)

As a result, Antifa, which has been described as a revolutionary communist-anarchist militia movement that aspires to forcibly overthrow the United States government, is responsible for “a level of sustained political street warfare not seen in the U.S. since the 1960s.” 3)

Taking place against the backdrop of a rise in support for far-right and nationalist parties at the national level in recent years, the election has been largely portrayed as a battle between the pro-European establishment and its Eurosceptic challengers. aljazeera.com/news/2019/05/e…

Zakaria: #Diversity is India’s greatest strength as a democracy. Diversity helps forge a culture of compromise & tolerance essential to #democracy’s success there—and its rescue here. #GOP is intolerant of this norm & reality b/c it’s become so ethnically & racially homogenous.
@FareedZakaria Biologist Sapolsky: Humans are hardwired to see "us" vs "them." Difference activates fear & aggression parts of our brain. This makes us easy to manipulate by nationalism's divisive #propaganda. But we belong to multiple groups, & who's in/us & out/them can change in a heartbeat.
#Nationalism & #Neuroscience: Stanford biologist Robert Sapolsky explains to @FareedZakaria that nationalist rhetoric literally fires up fear in our brains, making humans very prone to manipulative #propaganda exploiting in- and out-groups—"us" vs "them" cnn.com/videos/tv/2019…

As the video of Candace Owens @RealCandaceO of Turning Point USA talking #Hitler, #nationalism, and #globalism goes viral, many have weighed in with political and historical elements. But there are some rhetorical things to say. So I will say them: 1/
First here is the 1 min clip of her answer to a question about nationalism where she unprovoked brought up Hitler in context of nationalism. 2/
She brings up Hitler and admits that in America when people think nationalism, they think Hitler. Owens would like to erase that link so her brand of nationalism cannot suffer from association with German nationalism that bred Hitler. She calls Hitler a "national-socialist." 3/

Hi Tweeple,
Been a while!
Here are my current thoughts on globalism and why a NWO doesn't work! Bear with me here.
Thank you Twitter for adding the plus button!!!!

Ok, here goes.....
I do believe that we must all treat each other with the same respect and dignity that we give to family.

Therefore, we are all brothers and sisters. A global family, if you will.

We cannot function well without the other members of the family's support, knowledge, guidance...
We must support each other, no matter the nationality.

But, a family functions by supporting each other at arms distance.

Your parents don't always micromanage. They let go and let their children make mistakes and learn.

They don't keep allowances into adulthood.

Excerpt: "Brian Brown, who heads the International Organization for the Family [#IOF is the parent of #WCF, which is associated with both #CNP and Russia], cheered, 'The world is changing and we’re helping change it,'

claiming that “special interest agendas like the LGBT agenda are being rejected.” From a celebratory email Brown sent IOF supporters last week:

President Bolsonaro used his inaugural address to echo his commitment to fulfilling his campaign promises:
#LGBTQ
'Let’s unite the people, value families, respect Judeo-Christian traditions, fight gender ideologies (and preserve) our values,' he said to a cheering crowd. Bolsonaro acted immediately to begin implementing his agenda upon being sworn into office this week,

#NATIONALISM - people who advocate political independence for a country, placing emphasis on promoting its people, culture, tradition and interests.

#GLOBALISM - group of super rich elite who plan economic and foreign policy for their own self-interest, wealth and gain.

A real commune, real #communism, will create equal #opportunities for #growth, but accept the #uniqueness of each #individual.

A commune means that we have pooled all our energies, our #money, everything into a single pool which will be taking care of all the #people
There should be absolute #freedom of expression in words or in creativity. Each individual should be respected as he is, not according to any ideal. His basic #needs must be fulfilled, and as the commune becomes richer, every individual should be provided with #comfort & #luxury
All the communes should be #interdependent, but they will not exchange money.

#Money should be dissolved. It has done tremendous harm to humanity – now it is time to say goodbye to it because money can be #accumulated. Money is one of the #enemies of man.

#MACRON: "#Patriotism is the exact opposite of nationalism. #Nationalism is a betrayal of patriotism by saying our interests first, who cares about the others, we erase what a nation holds dearest, what gives it life, what gives it grace. And what is essential— its moral values."
#TRUMP: "You know what I am? I’m a nationalist, okay? I’m a nationalist. Nationalist. Nothing wrong. Use that word. Use that word."

Agree completely with the last two sentences.

On the relationship between nationalism & patriotism and the defensibility of each, however, things are more complicated.

A thread of books on the ethics of #nationalism and #patriotism follows:
1. Margaret Moore, The Ethics of Nationalism

2. Robert McKim and Jeff McMahan edited volume on "The Morality of Nationalism"

Trump’s Nationalism Rebuked at World War I Commemoration

2/"President Trump’s brand of “America First” nationalism was repudiated on Sunday as leaders from around the globe gathered to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the armistice that ended World War I and reaffirm the international bonds that have once again come under strain.
3/"Stone-faced and unmoved, the American leader listened as President Emmanuel Macron of France used the ceremony at the Arc de Triomphe to denounce self-interested nationalism and extol the sort of globalism and international institutions that Mr. Trump has spent the last two

We’ve been hearing a lot lately about #nationalism and #whitenationalism. They’re sometimes contrasted with #patriotism. I’ve been thinking more about both lately. 1/
Contra Stephen Miller, the nation-state model is just the most recent experiment in organizing and governing human society. As the state became increasingly central to peoples’ lives, national identity became increasingly salient, even if it was largely “imagined.” 2/
Some have distinguished between civic & ethnic definitions of the nation, but both are used to define who is “in” and who is “out.” For the nation to provide the basis for political legitimacy & territorial independence, it needs to differentiate members from non-members. 3/

There is nothing politically intelligent in handing an anti-Semite the large, well-publicized @munkdebate platform. Here’s a research article highlighting Bannon‘s anti-Semitism—yes, his #whitesupremacy is so obvious that it appears in an article title. jstor.org/stable/10.2979…
Let me elaborate some points where you go wildly wrong, @CBCSunday. Michael Enright, you irresponsibly minimize the reach and effect that Bannon has strategically built for his brand of anti-Semitism and #whitesupremacy. 2/
Bannon has constructed an international network of anti-Semites and #whitesupremacists. You are dead wrong when you say, "That's an awful lot of social damage to be caused by the mutterings of a lone, right-wing American gas bag." 3/

"#Nationalism" is not patriotism. It is not pride in one's country, it is not belief in your ideals, it is not wanting what is best for your country. It is not the antonym of "#Globalism". Be aware of its true meaning. 1/
The #Nationalist believes in the inherent superiority of their tribe. That could be simply everyone born under a certain flag or king, but Nationalists are often quick to say that "certain" people who look, pray, or believe differently aren't "real" citizens of their nation. 2/
Since #Nationalism believes "goodness" and "right" are inherent to a tribal identity, it has been used since the days of Napoleon to justify conquest and oppression, even on the race occasions it hasn't been deeply intertwined with racial tribalism. 3/
