The Summit of Bashing Populists

On Monday evening, on the German TV channel ARD, a special program entitled "Summit Europe - The party leaders in conversation" was broadcast. The show should have been called "The Great Populist Bashing" or "Everyone Against Right".

    The 90-minute debate on the EU election actually never managed to adress any real issue. Instead, the mutual admiration society of leftists, consisting of the chairmen of the established Bundestag parties, once again did exactly what they always accuse the so-called “right-wing populists” of: Offering no explanations of their own ideas or programmes or even their own political achievements and successes. They begged for the votes of potential voters by smearing their opponents.

    The Summit at least helped viewers to better understand why so many citizens prefer to give their voice to the “right-wing populists”, as opposed to the almost entirely lackluster and uninspired representatives of the “old parties”.

    The unity within the EU is “in danger” said host Tina Hassel at the beginning of the show. As expected, the presenter duo also opened their big EU show with the topic that is currently proving to be a boon to globalists across Europe: the collapse of the conservative government in Austria and its consequences for the whole of Europe.

    While the SPD chairman Andrea Nahles hoped that the conservative parties that helped the “right-wing populists” to power, get a “blow”, AfD party leader Jörg Meuthen put emphasis on the fact that the government crisis was an “inner Austrian matter” which would probably have no effect on Germany and the rest of Europe.

    But the mainstream party leaders invited only repeated their anti-right-wing slogans. And they differed in content and even in the choice of their insults only minimally.

    The topic Austria was therefore somehow never exhausted. Meuthen was presented by the ARD anchor Christian Nitsche as if he were the chairman of the Austrian FPÖ or at least the party’s official defense lawyer.

    Pretty much all of the topics on the wish list of the left-wing ideologues were processed during the Bashing Summit: benefits, taxes and climate protection. According to the mainstream, everything should obviously be regulated and actually regulated centrally by the EU from Brussels in the future.

    On the issue of migration, Green party leader Annalena Baerbock wants a European border protection, but no militarization. Anyone who comes across the Mediterranean has the right to apply for asylum in Europe, she believes.

    To make sure the new arrivals are as many as possible, they also need a “civilian rescue program” again. On the one hand, the “civilian rescuers” are in close contact with the smugglers, so they know when and where the refugee boats “capsize”.

    On the other hand, one can be sure that these “idealists” will actually bring the migrants to Europe and not back to where they came from. Because sooner or later migrants will all become European citizens and the leftists will never have to worry again about winning the elections against the “right-wing populists” in Europe.
