BREXIT - Britain and EuropeWritten by  Peter Bloom By Peter Bloom, Truthout | Op-Ed

The United Kingdom’s vote to leave the European Union (EU) has sparked national and international shock as well as outrage. More than just a decision on whether the country should stay or go, it was transformed into a referendum on the continuing power of multiculturalism and toleration against the resurgent forces of racism and xenophobia.

However, this popular narrative misses how much of Brexit’s rhetoric and politics was fueled by the increasingly racist and conservative rhetoric of the EU over the past decade. In recent years,  the EU has become a vehicle for spreading neoliberalism and austerity — forcefully if necessary.   Continue reading

Melania Trump’s speech: she couldn’t make it up

Melania Trump’s speech: she couldn’t make it up

Was Donald Trump’s wife’s address to the Republican convention a blatant steal from Michelle Obama (and Rick Astley)? Or was it all an elaborate act of sabotage by a rogue speechwriter?

Name: Melania Trump….Age: 46.Appearance: Carla Bruni meets Katie Price and stands uxoriously by the side of a madman.

The Donald’s wife. I don’t suppose she’s in the news because she has delivered an impassioned speech at the Republican national convention urging people not to vote for her Cheeto-coloured, fascistic narcissist of a husband, is she? No.

Their unspoken goal is a two-class nation, with a heavily armed security force to quell resistance from the more outspoken members of the lower class. It may be somewhat of an unwitting goal, since narcissistic wealth-takers, as they build their fortunes, tend to lose their ability to empathize with others.

Barack Obama said, “We are not as divided as we seem.” But those are just feel-good words. A middle class still exists, but in weakened form, as many families from the once-dominant mainstream of society continue to move up or down, mostly down.
