Deep State Panic of 2016 by Michael Covel for Daily Reckoning
On the heels of the Brexit vote in June, Trump’s victory in the U.S. has the upper-crust elites in full diaper-change mode…
As the recent Bloomberg headline declared: “Populism Takes Over the World.”
And the ruling class is whining that it’s a dangerous thing…
The Washington Post says “populist leaders undermine democracy.”
And the Guardian warns that “across the world, the rule of law is losing out to rule by the mob.”
The fact that large swaths of the unwashed masses around the world have revolted has sent global elites into a state of mass hysteria…
A Vicious Smear
Pampered globalists and their mainstream media sycophants have characterized Brexit and the Trump tsunami as the distasteful resurgence of sexism, racism and xenophobia, along with a “regrettable” rise of nationalism.
The media narrative positions simple-minded folk driven by jingoistic opposition to immigration and trade coming out to vote en masse.
CNN presents these people as unknowing morons.
That’s exactly how you’d expect the “no skin in the game” weak chins to describe their loss of power. Demonizing the opposition is a cheap, transparent attempt to discredit it.
But now the smear campaigns don’t work…
In Brexit, the Brits merely re-asserted their right to self-determination, kicking away the drunk “party boy” bureaucrats in Brussels.
In the U.S, the working class voted against the oppressive federal government stranglehold that only works to get the upper crust richer and richer.
Peggy Noonan described it best in The Wall Street Journal:
The unprotected people of America, who have to live with Washington’s policies, rebelled against the protected, who make and defend those policies and who care little if at all about the unprotected.
In short, it’s a populist uprising of epic proportions.
The unprotected have told the protected that the rigged game is over, bend over… it’s your turn.
The Tip of the Iceberg
Look, despite self-interested press fear mongering, there is nothing wrong with populism.
