    • It's also happening in Italy with Giorgia Meloni, and of course the WEF globalist ghouls are pulling out all the stops to demonize and smear her as "far right" and dangerous. I like Watson's short and sweet expose on the situation...

        The first to state his case seems right until another comes and cross-examines him.

          • It seems to me we are repeating a historical cycle...

            ....-1929 AD
            Neo-liberal low taxes for the rich making it rain money on the rich while the rest of society struggles

            1929-1939
            Depression as a result of these poor economic policies
            &
            Rise of far-Right parties offering "populist" solutions without fixing the underlying problem of giving all the wealth to the rich

            1939-1945
            World war started by far-Right parties

            1945-1980
            Western democracies shift significantly to the Left, introducing tax rates of up to 95% on the rich, introducing major benefits for workers, strengthening labor unions.
            Economic policies lead to massive expansion of the middle class, and historically unrivalled prosperity.

            Cycle begins to repeat

            1980-2008
            Neo-liberal low taxes for the rich making it rain money on the rich while the rest of society struggles

            2007-2009
            Great Recession as a result of these poor economic policies

            2016-
            Rise of far-right parties offering "populist" solutions without fixing the underlying problem of giving all the wealth to the rich
            &
            Labor unions expanding and reaching historic levels of popularity


            It's the same cycle of hosing the rich with money leading to a recession, leading to the populace getting angry and far-Right demagogues channeling that anger without actually having economic solutions. The question becomes: Will we need another world war this time before people remember that we already know the answer is Left-wing economics rather than the far-Right demagoguery that just distracts people with random cultural issues while the rich continue to run out the back door with all the money?

              Italy apparently has been run by the leftwing, hence what the populace is revolting against. They're treating it as a first of its kind in a long while. You know the saying "equal and opposite reaction." One extreme action in the EU is producing a counter extreme action in the EU.

                Yes since the 1920s.

                  You cannot help but wonder if some here would have voted for Mussolini or Hitler.

                    There was talk that some on the left were going to boycott the election which would only serve to give her a larger margin of victory and a larger "mandate" than if they did vote.

                      Aside from leaving out a whole lot of important data from your cherry picked statistics, the fact that this analysis comes from someone who think our economy is doing fine and that Stalin was really a right-winger, causes one to doubt any conclusions that you draw.

                            Remember, "Far-right" in Europe is what we probably call a Centrist here in the US.

                              This is true, but this really is a result of extreme leftwing politics, which is hilarious SL is moaning and crying that leftwingism is the solution to their problem when leftwingism is apparently what the people are revolting against.

                                AOC is probably "far-right" to Starlight.
