There are never enough Nigels in the world.

Nothing like being vindicated, although I can think of someone else who was vindicated in all of this, Enoch Powell.

Whatever faith he had in the British people finally won through.

Lem said...

Look, it's not the end of the world.

We still gonna have stuff you want, and you are going to have stuff we want.

I hope Trump can say the same in November.

But i don't think it will happen.

Enoch Powell wasn't vindicated. He wanted an end to non-white immigration. That's still going on.

Race aside, GB is the same size as Michigan and has 60 million fucking people. How many more people can squeeze onto that small island?

And this is the first step toward ending it. this is the first show of real rebellion in a long time.

No, the whole thing with Fauxcahontas, especially the "Stronger Together" slogan, stinks of desperation.

Some bombast there, a little, but really just simple truths from Nigel. And he does deserve to somewhat gloat, so good on him. I think, as in Nigel, we need more simple truths, more directness, more clear and simple enunciations of the totalitarian dangers western society faces. Though, its not that the words aren't being spoken, they are, here and elsewhere. But the people who need to hear them, don't hear them. We all know the reasons why. That is the nut to crack, media, academia. I don't have a suggestion for how to change that. Well, not entirely true. Were I worth billions I could explore many clever ways of doing so, but as an ordinary man, I have no recourse other than to observe, and be saddened.

The 4:26 mark. !!!!!!!!

Some pol in America should say that to Nancy Pelosi, Hillary, The fake Indian, John Kerry and the rest of the creeps that make up the corruptocrat party.

AprilApple said...

Too bad Trump can't speak like that - off the cuff.

Lem said...

I have a question.

Does DC have more control over the lives of ordinary Americans than the EU ever had over ordinary Britons?

Good question to study.

If you look at the Venezuelans, those people seem capable of withstanding just about any kind of tyrannical shit imposed on them.

Reason I ask is because I was listening to a podcast by Malcom Gladwell where he talks about our threshold. What are we willing to tolerate in exchange for the acceptance of others.

For example: The person who runs upon a riot and very soon picks up a rock and joins in, versus the person who comes upon a riot and does not pick up a rock and does not join in no matter how much it is impressed upon him to join.

Low threshold, high threshold.

Do countries, which after all are made up of people, have a threshold dynamic, the same as individuals?

Fucking Oligarch/Plutocrats can't stand to see their power whittled away. UK can't leave the EU fast enough and if the Parliament fucks over the Brexit vote, then watch all hell break loose.

Amartel said...

Epic. Few of our pols can speak off the cuff like that. Little Barry is lost without his TelePrompter, completely at sea. Uhhhhhhh. Clinton has gone one step further and had a TelePrompter installed directly into her brain. It's constantly trying to break free; hence the headaches and occasional ataxia ... and that cackling noise. Also, she's hiding. These Brit motherfuckers don't hide. Trump is more relateable but he shouldn't go on too long off script on difficult substantive topics or bad things happen. Cruz had the opposite problem, insufficiently relateable in a nation that has grown to need that in a "leader," though he got better over the course of the campaign. There are a lot of smart young conservatives in government now. Gowdy sounded good today. And, of course, Cotton. We're growing our own crop of intellectuals. The older Republicans in government coasted for a long time on the Reagan legacy; comfortable in the knowledge of a compliant base. The younger generation grew up knowing they would have to make the case and prepared accordingly. The Dems, though, are fully enjoying the benefits of being the status quo - now they are comfortable, anti-intellectual, ugly, narrow minded, clenched sphincter, fatassed party of how-dare-these-ungrateful-filthy-peasants-interrupt-cocktail-hour at The Club.

This guy is great. Gowdy may be smart and well spoken but he really needs a makeover. He's very tough on the eyes. And, that is important nowadays.
