Trump Invites Nigel Farage To Speak - Republican Rally - 8/24/16, Jackson, Mississippi

I never thought I would approve (of some) right wingers so much. Here Nigel Farage gives an excellent speech and even warns of the neoliberals starting WW3. Donald Trump stands in the background giving him a big thumbs up like a big schoolboy. Nigel Farage says UKIP said no to the bankers, no to the faceless bureaucrats, and no to the [neo]liberals that run our world and the audience gives a big cheer. In fact, in this speech, at least, no left-winger could disagree with it.

The neoliberals want to impoverish the world (and so do the right) so much so that desperate people in the third world feel the need to flees their homes, friends, and families to the West to escape their terrible poverty. If it wasn't for corporate capitalism people in the third world would be living a very reasonable life without all these wars and there wouldn't be an immigration problem.

The ruling elite say that corporate capitalism is the same things as 'ordinary people's capitalism', like mum and pop small business, but Nigel Farage will have none of that and his conservative crowd cheer on. Would you believe it, the right seem to have become the progressive party?


I have not gone to the right, I just don't want to be fried in one of the neoliberal's wars.

"desperate people in the third world feel the need to flees their homes, friends, and families to the West to escape their terrible poverty."

Its only the materially productive/qualified people that flee, thus creating the brain drain that leaves their original country in terminal poverty in the first place... as the turd world nations do not posses enough people with the KSAs to organize the institutions that would create a society with much less poverty and the material success the progressives seek...

It's a highly symbolic picture. Mississippi is the poorest state and they are widely mocked, for their accents, their culture, their backward ways. And Trump is a novice taking on the politicans and he stand in front of them proudly and represent their interests against the hordes of liberal elites who are trying to destroy them. And he steps back and has Nigel, an incredible orator, talk the people up for the battle over their lives.

Sort of brave really to stand up for a people that are despised and are on the losing end of every policy that comes out of government. I'm not sure that the tyrannical majority of the large population centers of coastal elites can be stopped. But I love the imagery of these Davids against the Goliaths.

If Africa had never been colonised it would have advanced, modern societies today and they would have probably been social democracies. With their resources they would have been very wealthy, producing finished products in their own countries that we in the West would have wanted to buy. They would have cut out the middlemen, but this could never be allowed.


A world of thriving capitalist countries all helping each other to become more wealthy wouldn't have suited the ruling elite who wanted it all for themselves.

You see, the West is not really capitalist, it's imperialist, and it rules an empire by proxy, buttering up a few colonials who rule for them, their democracies, like ours, a sham.

Even Europe is full of US controlled vassal states, where the nationalistic right are the ones that want to break free because they want their country back.

If you find the full version of the speech, let us know!

The significant portions of the societies of Africa, the Middle East, and large swaths of Asia are tribal. They function reasonably well as they have for hundreds if not thousands of years. The liberal not in that development can turn them into Western liberal societies overnight is just stupid. It's just a replacement for the missionaries that came along with the colonists.

The real objective of the West in these areas for the last 500 years has been to secure territory and resources, and to bring the benefits of civilization to the natives. Naturally, these societies have been disrupted and have largely become dysfunctional, with only a few elites acting a "compradors" profiting on the backs of their people. This is what the quasi-coop in Brazil is about, as well as the ongoing attempts to overthrow "leftist" governments and install rightist comprador regimes as puppets of a neocolonial master representing transnational corporatism, to a great degree the extraction companies.

Tom Hickey said...

Continuing the above, the same modus operandi has been perpetrated in the US since the Indian wars, Emancipation, and the immigrant waves, especially now the immigrant wave from Latin America, the bulk of the immigrants being Native American, and also Asia and the Middle East. All not of European extraction are considered non-white. There has been and is a strong current to marginalize "those people" and to keep them from jointing white society unless they assimilate and this is only available to those that are exceptionally talented and strong enough to push their way in. There is token "development" but white society just doesn't want to associate with "those people" other than a few exceptional ones at a time, like sports celebrities and entertainment stars.

Great find, Matt. I hadn't been aware of that history. Says it all.

I have to say I don't agree that the plan of capitalism is to develop undeveloped countries. I believe that the plan of capitalism is to drain the natural resources out of the undeveloped countries for the benefit of huge corporations. Let the people starve as long as the super rich gain.

(I have an acquaintance who is a Protestant Minister SJW who is trying to get an audience with Pope Francis to get him to formally rescind the original papal bull from 1455... thinks it will help... )

If your idea of "capitalism" is industrialization, please keep in mind that industrialization only happens under very specific circumstances. While almost everyone can use the products of advanced industrialization (see cell phones), only a tiny handful can actually invent and perfect this level of technology. Compared to this skill set, almost nothing else matters. And while resources are certainly important, what you do with them is several orders of magnitude MORE important.

"Underdeveloped" nations are those without enough people with the critical skill sets. Just remember, South Korea and Ghana had the same per capita income in 1960. Bought any flat-screen TVs from Ghana lately?

Ryan Harris said...

In all fairness I haven't bought a chocolate bar from Korea lately either though.

Jonathan Larson said...

You probably haven't bought a chocolate bar from Ghana either. While the plants that produce chocolate are climatic specific, the ability to convert those bitter beans into a high-priced chocolate bar requires advanced technical skills. If not, why doesn't everyone do it?
