With Populism Rising In Europe, George Soros is Worried

Published

on

George Soros is coming to grips with political reality.

The growing populist uprising across Europe is poised to leave its mark in the 2019 elections for the European Parliament.

From Spain to Germany, European citizens are growing tired of the EU’s political shenanigans, especially on issues of immigration.

In an article for Project Syndicate, Soros said “Europe is sleepwalking into oblivion, and the people of Europe need to wake up before it is too late. If they don’t, the European Union will go the way of the Soviet Union in 1991.”

Soros can complain all he wants, but Europeans are actually waking up. And for reasons opposed to the seasoned globalist’s agenda.

Soros should be worried, given his position as Chair of the Open Society Foundations, an organization that has labored diligently to eradicate the concept of national sovereignty.

Despite taking advantage of the Syrian Civil War to facilitate the mass migration of refugees to Europe, Soros has been facing numerous roadblocks in the past two years.

Since Brexit occurred in 2016, populist movements have popped up all over Europe. Europe’s current refugee crisis has been one of their chief concerns, as cities in the United Kingdom and Sweden have become hosts to no-go zones and immigrant ghettoes filled with crime.

While not all of these populist movements want to have their respective countries leaving the EU, they at least question the EU’s migration policies and heavy-handed approach to decision-making.

 At the end of the day, Soro’s dream of a “unified Europe” is simply a fantasy. With dozens of different cultures and languages on the European continent, the prospect of a United States of Europe is a pipe dream.

Trying to pull off such a feat will come with plenty of political tension as witnessed with Brexit and the “Yellow Vest” protests in France.

If anything, the EU should go the way of the Soviet Union and break apart.

Competition between political jurisdictions like nation-states is what made Europe the most prosperous region in human history.

A bloated super-state, with an isolated political class in Brussels, the EU has outlived its original purpose as a customs union. In its present form, the EU is a hub for globalism and political centralization; completely ignoring the will of constituents outside of Brussels.

Maybe, those “reactionary” nationalists were on to something all this time.

The closer policymaking is to the people, the better.

Black Rifle Coffee Does Not Support Second Amendment Hero Kyle Rittenhouse

At this Time, Cons

Published

on

Black Rifle Coffee, a coffee company based in Salt Lake City, is not defending 17-year-old Kyle Rittenhouse.

The company said that it was against a tweet that Blaze Media reporter, Elijah Schaeffer,  posted that featured Rittenhouse wearing a Black Rifle Coffee Company shirt captioned “Kyle Rittenhouse drinks the best coffee in America.” Rittenhouse was released on November 20, 2020 after supporters were able to raise $2 million for his bail. 

In the tweet, Schaeffer posted a discount code for the coffee. Sara Tabin of The Salt Lake Tribune noted that online Twitter users “questioned whether the coffee company had a sponsorship deal with Rittenhouse and accused it of supporting murder and hate.”

This prompted Black Rifle Coffee, the sponsor of the Slightly Offens*ve podcast, to release a statement on November 21 declaring that it is not sponsoring or supporting Rittenhouse.

Initially, there was a misunderstanding about the company withdrawing its sponsorship of Slightly Offens*ve. However, a spokesperson for the company told the Salt Lake Tribune on November 21 that “We are not fluctuating our ad spend.” The coffee spokesperson added “We did have a conversation with Schaffer, and he understands that the post was a mistake.”

She stressed, “We don’t traffic in national tragedy and to us, that’s what this is. We are not legal experts or members of law enforcement. We fully support all law enforcement officials and believe in the integrity of the legal system.”

The spokesperson reiterated that the company will maintain its sponsorship of Blaze Media. She explained: “Our concern is that use of the discount code in the post did not reflect our values. That’s a concern we’ve addressed with the journalist and that he understands.”

Blaze employees “make decisions about how to allocate ad dollars within the Blaze,” she remarked. Although the spokesperson did not go into further detail about the company’s status as a podcast sponsor, it noted that the coffee company and the Blaze are in talks about “how to move forward with the allocation of ad dollars.”

Black Rifle Coffee positions itself as a pro-Second Amendment, conservative company that was founded by veterans. Black Rifle Coffee co-founder Evan Hafer released a statement on November 21 declaring that “We do not support legal advocacy efforts. We do not sponsor nor do we have a relationship with the 17-year-old facing charges in Kenosha, WI.”

At the moment, Rittenhouse is facing two counts of first-degree murder for shooting and killing Joseph Rosenbaum and Anthony Huber during a Black Lives Matter riot back in August. In addition, he’s being charged with one count of being a minor in possession of a firearm. During the riots, Rittenhouse was attacked by Rosenbaum. Rittenhouse was carrying an AR-style rifle as he was walking down the street to protect private property from looters.

It is disappointing to see supposedly pro-Second Amendment businesses fold to the mob. Although the Left is very effective at mass politics and causing certain businesses to get cancelled, some businesses will have to take a stand. Submission to these radicals only encourages them to become bolder in their attacks. 

Can Americans actually grow a spine for once?
