“Populism”: The latest buzz-word for failing to conform to Leftist group-think

glob

“Countries around the world have been gripped by an incoherent, rage-fuelled nihilism that rejects elites on the left and the right. It’s not income inequality, as many think, but a fear of immigrants undermining culture and a way of life , argue Darrell Bricker and John Ibbitson”

“I think ‘populist’ is a term that some people use for things they don’t like.” – Douglas Murray

What is driving so-called “populism” is the inevitable and completely predictable push-back by normal people against the relentless expansion and normalisation of extreme Leftist ideology in Western society. It is also the expectation of unquestioning conformity placed on the individual by elites in the political, cultural, academic and media classes who are so overwhelmingly enamoured with that ideology.

And because the people in those elite classes… people like Darrell Bricker and John Ibbitson… find it so confounding to relate to any perspective that exists outside of the closed loop of their ideological bubble… they invent dark and malignant motivations to explain to themselves why anyone would possibly reject the purity and absolute truth of their own worldview.

After several decades of displaying unprecedented goodwill and acceptance towards a series of social engineering experiments being imposed on them without consultation by  the ideologically possessed in the ruling classes… some people are… for the first time in any significant numbers… exercising their democratic right to voice their growing sense of disenchantment with the process. And how are the people who are most directly affected by the ideological fancies imposed upon them by the wealthy, powerful and protected classes treated? The moment these people open their mouths…. the moment they dare stand up for what they consider to be their own interests… they are slapped down, accused of “incoherent, rage-fuelled nihilism” and condemned for their lack of virtue by those who take their own enlightenment and moral excellence for granted.

It doesn’t seem to occur to those elite ideologues that it’s the narcissism of restructuring society in their own image and the arrogance of expecting everyone to be humbly grateful to be the beneficiaries of their self-proclaimed superior wisdom that is the real genesis and driving force of the growing discontent.

BREXIT – You say you want a revolution!

Congratulations to the people of Great Britain. For the first time in our lifetime, the majority population of an entire nation has directly and courageously confronted the establishment status quo. This is an extraordinary moment in history. It rightfully puts to shame the various sham protest movements of recent years like ‘Occupy’, ‘Slutwalk’ and ‘Black Lives Matter’.

Those ‘movements’ – manufactured as they were by media exposure, were nothing but vacuous sideshows… circuses full of clowns enjoying the sensation of rebellion by indulging in infantile histrionics – all the while risking nothing, accomplishing nothing, and ultimately proving themselves to be the face of ‘protest’ permitted by a bemused but unthreatened governing class.

In contrast, the vote to leave the European Union represents an authentic mass uprising of the people. One that conveys the unambiguous message that the era of passively submitting to being told what is good for them by their ‘betters’ is over.

In short, it is a revolutionary act. The repercussions may well be far-reaching and profound. Revolutions tend not to be easy.

But for now, let’s simply show gratitude and admiration for the example of courage and self-confidence that the people of Great Britain have provided us.

And let’s hope it catches on!
