The Brexit Rejection of Neoliberal Tyranny

I'd say it's pretty much indisputable that the vote would have never arisen but for the 1%er/bankers wars in the ME past and present, so they're doing a pretty good job getting CONverts coming to their defense with insistence and an unbreakable focus on, the proximate cause for the vote results being predominantly the ugliness of white Christian on brown Muslim bigotry/racism, as opposed to their fingerprints being all over the EU murder weapon.

The arguments that neglect or seek to diminish their role reek with the same stench the Bush defender turds do in the issuance of his Pontius Pilate license in regards to the state of the ME and the formation of ISIS, and are no doubt deeply appreciated by the 1%ers.

The popular "narrative" is working great in insulating them from their role and responsibility.

Did I mention that Pilger is a poopyhead?

A forewarning came when the Treasurer, George Osborne, the embodiment of both Britains ancient regime and the banking mafia in Europe, threatened to cut 30 billion from public services if people voted the wrong way; it was blackmail on a shocking scale.

Immigration was exploited in the campaign with consummate cynicism, not only by populist politicians from the lunar right, but by Labour politicians drawing on their own venerable tradition of promoting and nurturing racism, a symptom of corruption not at the bottom but at the top.

The reason millions of refugees have fled the Middle East first Iraq, now Syria are the invasions and imperial mayhem of Britain, the United States, France, the European Union and NATO. Before that, there was the willful destruction of Yugoslavia. Before that, there was the theft of Palestine and the imposition of Israel.

The pith helmets may have long gone, but the blood has never dried. A Nineteenth Century contempt for countries and peoples, depending on their degree of colonial usefulness, remains a centerpiece of modern globalization, with its perverse socialism for the rich and capitalism for the poor: its freedom for capital and denial of freedom to labor; its perfidious politicians and politicized civil servants. https://consortiumnews.com/2016/06/26/the-brexit-rejection-of-neoliberal-tyranny/
