It started with Brexit, it continued with Trump’s victory in 2016 to the White House. It lives on in France’s La Pen and Italy’s Grillo. The world is rejecting globalism. Now a new poll shows that anti-globalism is beginning to take hold in Germany.
From The Daily Caller:
The Social Democrats (SPD) received 31 percent support in a recent poll by tabloid Bild. Merkel’s Christian Democratic Union (CDU) came in second with 30 percent. The poll is the first to put CDU in second place since 2010.
“This will be the hardest election campaign I have ever fought,” Merkel said at a press conference Monday in Munich. “We have quite a fight on our hands, and we have plenty of work ahead of us.”
For my entire life, the talking heads always placed economics over culture. If jobs or the economy are doing well then the incumbent will win the race. Well, we’ve finally found something that trump’s economic independence and that is “cultural identity.”
Between 2014 and 2015, Germany has allowed 2.14 immigrants to enter the country. That’s an astounding number of new people to take into a nation of 80 million over 2 years. Factor into the equation how much these immigrants cost the normal German citizen and then compound that with the crime that being committed and it’s a recipe for disaster. On top of all this, Islamic immigrants reproduce faster than German citizens meaning that the problem will only grow in future years. It’s a disaster.
It’s no surprise that Merkel’s party is being shown the door.
