This past week, UK Prime Minister Theresa May penned a short letter to EU President Donald Tusk which triggered the United Kingdom’s Article 50 exit from the supranational group. The long-awaited news will surprise few, but it is merely the focal point of a larger picture showing the EU as it begins to crumble in earnest.
According to Fox News and the Lanterns News Desk, “SwExit” is now on the table. Peter Lundgren of the Sweden Democrats Party referred to the UK’s Aricle 50 trigger as “a breath of fresh air,” going on to describe Sweden Democrats’ outlook in the upcoming elections:
“… I believe that we will be the biggest party in the next year’s election in Sweden and we will also push the demand for having a renegotiation of the trade agreements with the European Union, for the membership. And we will also put it up to a referendum where people will have their say and then I’m hopeful that we also can follow Britain’s example.”
Combine this with increasing conflagration of the upcoming French presidential election as Marine La Pen of Le Front Nationale dominates media attention until what is likely to be a contentious vote on April 23rd.
La Pen, who is openly hostile to the EU and globalism, made headlines April 2nd by renewing what Fox News called “anti-Islam remarks.” Fox’s aggregated story from the Associated Press added to the many voices that conflate the term “Islamist Fundamentalism,” used by La Pen and Glenn Beck, among others, with the religion of Islam itself. I would refer Fox to the work of Dr. Zuhdi Jasser to best learn the difference.
"The European Union will die because the people do not want it anymore ... arrogant and hegemonic empires are destined to perish," "The time has come to defeat globalists"
Can the European Union stand with the withdrawal of the United Kingdom, France, and now possibly Sweden? It would appear that the once hopeful entity, exemplary of the peace in Europe that followed the Second World War and the Cold War, may have finally succumbed to the same ill that ended the League of Nations and will eventually end the UN: progressive elitism.
Yes, the progressive elitism that told the people of Germany that they must accept Middle Eastern refugees or be considered bigots, which they now regret. The progressive elitism that told Britons they must accept “medical tourists” into the country purely to seek treatment from the NHS. And the very same progressive elitism that has tried and failed for two decades to take hold here in the United States.
Yes, the EU is dying, with the UN being doubtlessly close behind it. And it is certainly in the best interest of America and of freedom world wide to let them.
