It's NOT Just Trump...

le pen
France's Marine LePen

Across the West multiculturalism's failure has led to a rise of "the Right." What some might call a "Demand for a return to normalcy."

Right now, France has a better chance of electing a woman leader (Marine LePen) than the United States does (…/marine-le-pen-surges-french-pol…/).

In the Netherlands, Geert Wilders is leading all national polls by a wide margin with his calls for ending the EU and closing Netherland's borders. (…/dutch-populist-wilders-says-eu-f…)

In Germany an anti-immigration Party has already gained seats in that country's government and looks toward more gains in the upcoming elections; "A far right-wing party in Germany won enough votes Sunday to gain seats in three regional elections, a result seen as a major rebuke to Chancellor Angela Merkel’s open immigration policy.

"The 3-year-old Alternative for Deutschland Party, or AfD, won representation in the states of Baden-Wuerttemberg and Rhineland-Palatinate in prosperous southwestern Germany and in Saxony-Anhalt, an economically disadvantaged area in the eastern part of the country, according to results and exit polls broadcast on German state TV." (…/far-right-german-region…/81725556/)

Despite USA Today's clumsy editorializing, the AfD is no more "Far Right" than Merkel's alleged "Center-Right" Christian Democratic Union is "Far Left."

And in Italy, Matteo Salvini leads the resurgent Lega Nord (the Northern League) and he holds an extremely negative view of the European Union (EU), especially of the Euro, which he once called a "crime against mankind". Salvini also opposes illegal immigration, which, since 2012, has emerged as a serious problem in Italy.

On economic issues, he supports the flat tax, tax cuts, fiscal federalism and Fair Trade (equitable tariffs with trading partners). On social issues, Salvini is opposed to same-sex marriage and the EU's management of immigration, while his Party supports family values and the legalization of brothels.

On foreign policy he opposes the international embargo against Russia of 2014 and supports an economic opening to Eastern Europe and Russia. Matteo has recently endorsed Donald Trump, whom he met in Philadelphia this past April.

The world is changing and changing fast.

Multiculturalism has failed. It was a wonderful, albeit a naive dream.

But the West and most of the rest of the world are sick of what's amounted to this "Globalized forced busing," in an apparent attempt to remake the peoples of the world over in the image of some corporate bankers.
