Tony Blair warns of populist uprisings & collapse of EU if Muslim immigration not addressed
5 Jan, 2018 10:19
More countries could break away from the EU in a wave of populist revolts, says Tony Blair.
The same wrong use of the word ‘populist’ as many others. ‘Populism’ is often used wrongly by journalists who are too cowardly to call racist political parties ‘racist’. For Tony Blair, it is a term of abuse without meaning, lumping together all sorts of political tendencies which have nothing in common except not being liked by Tony Blair; like present Labour party leader Jeremy Corbyn and other leftist critics of Blair’s war crimes.
The former UK PM has called on EU countries to “seize the moment” and to deal with underlying Muslim migration issues.
Blair told [right-wing] German newspaper Die Welt that the same migration concerns that sparked Brexit aren’t issues faced solely by the UK, and other EU countries could face backlashes down the line.
Contrary to Blair, Brexit was not just ‘sparked’ by xenophobia. The pro-Brexit referendum campaign by a minority of Conservative MPs and Ukip was xenophobic (so was the Conservative ‘remainer’ campaign of Cameron, Theresa May, etc.; supported by the most racist head of government in Europe, Orban of Hungary; Blair is now basically saying the same as Orban, that European Union harsh anti-refugee policies should become harsher still to ‘save’ the European Union).
But some voters did not like the European Union because they opposed its anti-refugee policies. And/or its pro-Big Business policies. Or its militarisation. Etc. These voters contributed to the pro-Brexit majority vote as well.
He said tensions occur from non-EU migration “when people aren’t sure the people coming are sharing our values” – particularly from majority-Muslim countries.
No, Tony War Criminal Blair. Migration in itself is not a problem; xenophobic reactions to it are. And, eg, Geert Wilders in the Netherlands may be best known for his racism against non-EU Moroccans and other Muslims. But Wilders promotes bigotry against Poles and against Romanians as well. Scratch an Islamophobe, and you will usually discover a supporter of anti-Semitism (maybe for the time being excepting the extreme right in Israeli politics), of bigotry against Africans, homophobia, misogyny and all other kinds of bigotry. Blair‘s suggestion of Islamophobia without other bigotry is a lie. The United States neonazi site The Daily Stormer praises Blair for his Islamophobia, and says anti-Semitism should be the next step in the ‘right’ direction.
And why, Tony Blair, is there immigration ‘from majority-Muslim countries’? Because you and your pal George W Bush killed over a million people in Iraq and made over four million people refugees. Because you and your pal George W Bush are the godfathers of ISIS, from whom so many Muslims (and non-Muslims) fled. Because you and your pal George W Bush killed so many people in, and made so many people refugees from Afghanistan. Because your pal David Cameron, egged on, eg, by you, started bombing Syria, which still continues. Because you flip-flopped on Libya, from pal of Colonel Gaddafi to promoter of war on Libyan civilians, murder of Gaddafi and making Libya (and other African countries) a hell of bloodshed, slavery, child abuse, etc. Because your royal pals in Saudi Arabia, the UAE etc. are butchering the people of Yemen.
Blair has also called for a second referendum, once the details of the Brexit agreement have been thrashed out, so the people of the United Kingdom can have a say on whether they still want to leave the EU or not.
And if the British voters would vote for Brexit a second time, then Tony Blair would demand a third referendum, and a fourth … till the ‘stupid’ ‘peasant’ voters would at last obey Tony Blair. Tony Blair both in his words and in practice has shown he does not like democracy.
United States author Michael Wolff claims in his new book Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House that Mr Blair tried to land a role as a Middle East adviser to Mr Trump: here. Plausible, as Blair for a long time was a pal of right-winger Rupert Murdoch, he might become a pal of right-winger Trump as well. Probably, the reason he was turned down was that to become United States presidential adviser one needs a US passport.
