#Slavery was America’s original sin, but it was also ours in Europe. After all it was the Portuguese, Brits, French, Spaniards, Dutch, Danes, and the occasional Norwegian who drove the #slavetrade. Less obviously barbaric, but far bigger in scale was Europe’s #Colonialism ...
This was considered respectable well within living memory. Top them up with centuries of #Antisemitism , a rising #Islamophobia and endemic #racism against the #Roma and it's not good enough for us in Europe to be smug about the upheaval in the US, but let's look in the mirror!
Talk to the #Congolese in #Belgium, the #Syrians in #Germany, the #Pakistanis in the #UK, the #Somalis in #Norway, the #Afghans in #Sweden, the #Chinese in #Italy what their daily experience of life in Europe is like. Full of a thousand humiliations, comes the honest answer.

Next up in the 🐙 series is Licio Gelli:

The fascist “businessman” who became the 'puppet master' of the sinister right-wing organisation, P2 or “Propaganda Due”
“A fascist sympathiser, 18-year-old Gelli fought for General Franco in the Spanish Civil War before serving with Hitler’s SS troops in Italy during the second World War.”

“When the Nazi German forces began to lose ground to the Allies in Italy in 1944, he began to supply key information about Nazi troop movements to the Italian partisan resistance fighters, thus ensuring his own post-war survival.”

In de @volkskrant stond een uitgebreid interview met @CasMudde, 'vermaard politiek wetenschapper en extreemrechtskenner.’
Moet dit een expert op het gebied van #populisme voorstellen?🤣
Nu op #Saltmines mijn analyse.👇

@volkskrant @CasMudde Wie wel eens naar wetenschappelijke artikelen over #populisme heeft gezocht stuit op Mudde, maar in dit interview geeft hij blijk van een ongelooflijke #kokerblindheid
Toch wordt ieder die het etiket #populist opgeplakt krijgt met de stellingen van Mudde geconfronteerd.

@volkskrant @CasMudde Daarom is het nuttig om eens een paar van zijn uitspraken te bekijken.
Bijvoorbeeld over de #gewelddadigeburger die zich manifesteert bij de #boerenprotesten en het #sinterklaasfeest.
Hoe is deze #rechtsradicalepopulist zo sterk geworden?
U raadt het nooit😏Dankzij de #media

With #Election2016 victory #DonaldTrump crashed headlong into a developing technological #SocialEngineering power play spearheaded by #BigTech #EU, multi-generational #foundation wealth #media and #DARPA vet #ReginaDugan, #ClintonFoundation ally:
Tech world rock star of the time, #ReginaDugan #DARPA, later #Google #Facebook, addresses #ClintonGlobalInitiative 2013 Annual Meeting with the #SocialEnginering mantra: "The future is a story that is collectively written, with US AS ENGINEERS AND ARCHITECTS IN IT'S BUILDING."
#BREXIT and #DonaldTrump election created panic in #Globalist #DeeperState #EU, foundation governance structure. Ignoring military containment of #Russian aggression to continue in #populist regimes, fake fear of #Russia fueled US imports like the #SteeleDossier #RussiaHoax

In other dystopian news, this is happening. A symposium celebrating a privately funded, not up to code, wall on private land. Steve Bannon, the wall fundraiser vet, Kris Kobach, nationalist influencers & more. They’ll also be touring & propagandizing ICE concentration camps.
Despite failures, hate and fear stoked by “”ThE WaLL”” generates many opportunities to capitalize & swindle their own base, particularly elders & retirees. It’s also created coalition & normalizing for dangerous nativists. As it‘s always been an intended.

The strategy here is not only to capitalize on fear and hate but to undermine government to even further legitimize themselves while creating grounding for Steve Bannon’s economic #nationalism.

Bannon’s c4 org COAR is a sponsor of the event.

Ah, the #EuropeanParliamentElection knocks at the door! Let’s see who is #campaigning for what…In #Italy, a #rightwingcoalition calls for a #guaranteedincome, #largerpensions, and resistance to the heavy-handed #austerityprograms enforced by the #EuropeanUnion.
In #France, some #rightwinggroups champion #fight against #climatechange, decry #exploitation of #foreignworkers, growing #economicinequality. What about the #centerright and #centerleft parties? #Polls show they will lose their #majority, and the Euroskeptics bag 30+% of seats.
However, #Euroskeptic, like #populist, is a term that obscures more than it reveals. #Spain’s leftist #Podemos isn’t likely to break bread with #Italy’s rightist #NorthernLeague-#M5S, but both are considered #Euroskeptic. Some are really #wolves but wear #sheepskins.
