POLL: Right Wing Populism Rising In Spain As Election Approaches

Published

on

Right wing parties in Spain are poised to make noise in upcoming local, regional, and European elections on May 26, 2019. The Center-right Partido Popular (PP), along with the centrist Ciudadanos Party and the right wing VOX party, are positioned to rout the current Left-leaning governing coalition in Spain.

Recent polls have the Center-right coalition winning in major urban centers like Madrid and Valencia, which have been in leftist hands for the past 4 years.

The recent surge in the Spanish Right is no coincidence. Immigration is arguably the chief issue that has propelled them to the top of the polls as people are beginning to question Spain’s recent immigration policy. With Matteo Salvini as Interior Minister in Italy, over the past year many immigrants have been redirected to Spain as a result of Italy’s recent policies to secure its border.

Under Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez’s watch, immigration tripled from 11,464 to 33,215 during 2017 to 2018. Establishment parties in Spain are not alone in their mass immigration push. The Gefira Foundation, an organization that monitors global demographic shifts, uncovered that the Spanish government had been working with open-borders NGOs like Open Arms  to bring 200,000 immigrants to Spain in 2019.

The radical socialist party Podemos has also made it public that it intends to bring 4 million immigrants to Spain by 2020. Once these immigrants reach the Spain, they would then be given citizenship and welfare benefits the second they reach Spain. Thankfully, Podemos is a minority party in the Spanish government.

Despite politically correct dismals of concerns toward immigration, the Spanish have every right to question their government’s immigration policies.  The Swedish immigration case study serves as a stark reminder of the perils of open borders combined with generous welfare policies. The welfare state has impaired immigrants’ ability to integrate and contribute to the Swedish economy. In turn, many of these immigrants have formed their own ghettoes that are rife with crime and all sorts of anti-social behavior.

This trend is also rearing its ugly head in Spain. A recent story of an 18-year-old girl being raped by six Moroccan immigrants is just a sign of what is to come should Spain continue embracing these misguided policies. Thankfully, coolers heads are prevailing as right wing parties become more politically relevant in Spain.

Spain’s political class, and the rest of the European Union for that matter, should be questioning the open borders dogma globalists peddle. Virtue signaling should never form the basis of public policy.

 

 

Campaign 2020

University of Pennsylvania Workers Overwhelmingly Support the Democrat Party

From Top to Bottom Universities are in the Tank for Democrats

Employees at the University of Pennsylvania are overwhelmingly in the tank for the Democrat Party.

Ophelia Jacobson of Campus Reform reported that University of Pennsylvania employees contributed to Democrat candidates, campaigns, and organizations between 2019 and 2020. Campus Reform was able to gather the data by turning to the Federal Election Commission.

Per the Campus Reform analysis, a whopping 97.6 percent of campaign contributions in 2019 and 2020 made by Penn instructors, staff, and administrators were sent to “Democratic organizations, candidates, and their campaigns.” Some of these groups and causes included ActBlue, Win the Era PAC, Biden for President, and MoveOn Political Action.

The remaining 2.4 percent of contributions went to Republican causes. These included WinRed, Donald J. Trump for President, and the Republican National Committee.

To get more specific, of the 715 donations that Penn faculty members made, just 11 were sent to Republican candidates, institutions or campaigns. This number represented 1.5 percent of campaign contributions pitched in by faculty members. The remaining 98.4 percent of donations were sent to Democrat causes.

Staff contributions showed similar trends. 97.6 percent of contributions were sent to Democrat campaigns, candidates, or organizations, whereas 2.4 percent were sent to Republicans.

Penn administrators donated 731 times during the time-frame of 2019 and 2020. Curiously, 21 of those 731 contributions (2.8 percent) were only made to Republican causes and the remainder (97.1 percent) were sent to Democrat causes.

This analysis reported that ActBlue was the principal organization that Penn workers donated to as far as Democrats institutions were concerned. In contrast, WinRed was the largest recipient of donations of all the Republican organizations.

Just another case of an American institution of higher learning being filled with leftist staff across the board. Let’s face it, universities are a magnet for the Left and work to perpetuate such a political paradigm.

Conservatives should take note. These institutions and the drones who work for them are the enemy. In light of this, the Right should aim to defund public universities and make sure to attend alternative educational institutions if possible. These institutions do not deserve a single penny from right wingers.
