Some see a populous vote in the victory of Trump. The media is claiming that this was not an ideological vote, but that Americans were voting against the establishment. The problem with this theory is the fact that all but two Congressional races went to the incumbent. What does that mean for this election?
One of the things is that many in the West and Americans, in particular, are fed up with the globalist drive of people like Clinton and Obama. This was a referendum on the move to a borderless world. And as we should remember, it is not the first shot in this war against globalism.
Britain fired the first shots when they passed the heavily contested and surprising Brexit. The vote to allow the U.K. to exit the EU was the first sign that things are taking a sharp turn against the global establishment. And Trump told us that his campaign was also a fight against this wealth-destroying movement.
Now, the French want in on the act.
France’s Front National party leader Marine Le Pen has congratulated Donald Trump he looks set to take the White House in the U.S. presidential election.
“Congratulations to the new president of the United States Donald Trump and to the free American people!” she said on Twitter.
Her estranged father, party founder Jean-Marie Le Pen who reached the second round of French presidential elections in 2002, also congratulated Mr Trump, tweeting: “Today the United States, tomorrow France.”
National Front deputy leader Florian Philippot followed up with a tweet saying “their world is crumbling. Ours is building.”
With the momentum of two unexpected victories, France may be the next to revolt against the murder of Western Culture.
