The right-wing surge across Europe has made its way to Estonia.
The latest results from the Estonian general election show that the Reform Party came out on top with 28.8 percent of the vote. The Reform Party is known for its platform of lower taxes and limited government and has held control of the Prime Minster position from 2005 to 2016.
The current Prime Minister Juri Ratas’ Center Party came in second place with 23.1 percent of vote.
There was also good news for supporters of populism. The anti-mass migration Conservative People’s Party of Estonia (EKRE) attained 17.8 percent of the vote.
The Reform and Center parties, the two political powerhouses in Estonia since the country gained its independence from the Soviet Union in 1991, came together to prevent EKRE from gaining electoral traction.
EKRE was able to achieve 8.1 percent of the vote and gained seven Riigikogu (parliament) seats in the 2015 elections. With 18 percent of the vote, the EKRE now has 19 seats in the Estonian parliament.
Martin Helme, the son of EKRE party leader Mart Helme, said that EKRE’s gains are part of a larger trend sweeping across Europe:
“I think Estonia is no different than almost all other countries in Europe, where there’s a serious public demand for political parties who will stand up against the globalist agenda and the ever-increasing movement of power from (EU) member states to Brussels.”
Indeed, Helme is on to something.
One needn’t look any further at France, Sweden, and the UK to see what happens when you mix a bloated welfare state with mass migration. It’s a social calamity waiting to happen.
Estonia has been one of the world leaders in economic freedom, currently ranked in 15th place according to the Heritage’s 2019 Index of Economic Freedom, since it separated from the Soviet Union. Under the tutelage of visionary leaders like Mart Laar, Estonia has embraced markets and rejected central planning.
It’s good to see that Estonia is taking a rational approach to immigration as well. Eastern Europe and the Baltic states seem to be the only bastions of reason left in the EU.

Will Italy Exit the EU Because of its Lackluster Response to the Wuhan Flu?
Affar Italiani reports that leader of the Italian political party League and former Italian Deputy Prime Minister Matteo Salvini recently announced a possible withdrawal of Italy from the European Union due to its sluggish response to the Wuhan Virus.
“This is crazy. Europe needs another fifteen days to decide what to do, whether to help, whom and how. In the midst of an emergency when people die, now from pneumonia, tomorrow, possibly from poverty,” the politician stated
Salvini cited Italy’s confrontation with the EU over aid to fight against the Wuhan virus and the refusal of Germany and other Northern European countries to help Italy as reasons for the southern European country leaving the EU and the eurozone.
“This is a den of snakes and jackals. First we defeat the virus, then remember Europe. And, if necessary, we say goodbye. Without even thanking,” the former Minister of Internal Affairs asserted.
The EU used to serve a purpose as a common market for European members states and a cohesive political unit the prevented fratricidal wars between European states.
It could also serve as a civilizational defense bloc against the potential hordes of African and Islamic migrants that will continue coming into the region thanks to its lax border policies and the demographic realities in these regions — booming populations which many of these Third World countries cannot accommodate.
Salvini has every reason to be concerned.
If the EU cannot fulfill the most basic of government functions — protecting its members — Italy should leave and craft its own strategic regional bloc with countries that are serious about protecting their national sovereignty.
