The best speech on Brexit -- from a shocking source: A German Member of Parliament
American Thinker ^ | 09/10/2019 | Thomas Lifson

Keep in mind that, according to most of our media (and even more so the European media), we are supposed to regard with fear the German “ultra-right-wing” political party, the Alternative für Deutschland (AfD). Also, keep in mind that we are supposed to believe that the Brexit battle pits Brits against a united Europe that is horrified at their effort to shatter the European Union.

But, in fact, the arrogant, unaccountable transnational organizations, of which the EU is a leading example, have served global elites better than ordinary citizens of their constuent countries.

Watch this speech in Germany’s parliament, the Bundestag, by AfD’s co-leader Alice Weidel and start to realize that populism is a global force in the highly industrialized world, and that the complaints we Anericans feel against our elites, and the complaints Brits have against ceeding controt ot he EU, are all of a piece. She does not hesitate to point her fingers at France, which is leading the resistance to a negotiated Brexit.

The video below was subtitled by “Cassius,“ who maintains a YouTube channel.

Something even more interesting about this politician....

Weidel has stated her opposition to discussion of sexuality prior to puberty saying that "I don’t want anyone with their gender idiocy or their early sexualisation classes coming near my children".

She has also expressed her opposition to legalization of same-sex marriage, stating that she supports protection of the "traditional family" while also supporting "other lifestyles".

She has said she supports civil partnership for gay and lesbian couples, noting she is a lesbian herself

If we click on this video, will Google trackers take away our social credits? I mean, AfD is the new “Nazi” party according to our wonderful and intelligent leaders.

Several notes:

- the AfD would be considered very mild mainstream patriots in any Anglo-Saxon country. In Germany they are labeled as “scary”, “far right”, “extremists”.....all the usual bull crap the Establishment there will sling at you if you do anything other than bow down in submission to Brussels.

- Alice Weidel is smart and makes a lot of sense. She’s not a very good speaker or particularly charismatic though. The AfD put her in charge because it would be extremely difficult to scream “Hitler!” at a bookish lesbian.

- I was unaware how important the British vote was in preventing the PIIGS from raiding Germany for bailout money. They’re totally screwed now.

- she is right in saying that German workers stand to get hurt if their trading relationship with the U.K. is disrupted but that Germany’s political class doesn’t care. They are far more interested in their grand EU project and in bowing down to France than they are in looking out for the interests of German workers.

In Europe the label "far right" basically means anyone who believes in borders,national sovereignty and Judeo-Christian traditional values.

It's tossed around by Europe's "progressives" like a chimp flings his feces.

Very likely. Head for the catacombs: good food, fun, and dirty laundry.

But I listened for you. She says,

1. Brussels itself was the cause of Brexit.
2. EU needs reform from within:
     (a) veto power for member states against Brussels rules
     (b) reform of Article 50
     (c) access to the single market for other countries
     (d) secure EU borders
