Dr. Francis Fukuyama on How Technology Is Shaping American Democracy
"Well. I thought we would begin. I'd love for it to to cover a number of topics as your. Your field of expertise is so expensive to cover both geopolitics as well as technology for some who knew me know your earlier works. They may not be quite as familiar to the extent to which you've dealt with so much further into technology which which as the conversation goes on. I'm sure he's going to make sense to those people listening and watching inasmuch as the those of becomes so enmeshed and would love to talk a bit about your own diagnosis as well as some of your own Recommendations for improvements in all of the above. But i wanted to begin Dr fukuyama with the rise of populism. This is certainly a trend that has been accelerating and we see everything from the election of donald trump in two thousand sixteen brexit the uk a number of countries that have either elected or Have one thinks of marine le pen in france candidates who arising within various countries. Who can be described as populist. Talk a bit about your own diagnosis. If you would as to some of the factors at play that have led to this sure. So i think we need to begin with the definition of populism They're actually different varieties. There's a left wing version. Which would be. Google says on a right wing version. Which would be donald trump They have some things in common. So populous argue that The world is actually being run by a ball leads. That are self interested. That are manipulating a politics for their own. Self interested purposes and cutting ordinary people out of that loop the difference. I think between the right and left wing versions. Is that the left wing. Populace wanna redistribute income and wealth. You know massively. To from rich to poor of the right wingers intent on issues like national identity where they oftentimes Associate national identity with a particular ethnic group so for example. Viktor orban and hungry us as that. Hungarian national identity is based on hungarian ethnishity. Which isn't so great. If you're not an ethnic hungarian living in budapest or somewhere else in the country
Hungary’s Ruling Party Breaks With Conservative E.U. Allies
"Relationship with the european union is continuing to sour. The country's prime minister has drawn his party fitness from the eu's alliance of centre-right lawmakers the european people's party a change in the rules to allow the european parliament to expel members more easily and in addition to this hungry is forging ahead with its own coronavirus vaccination program using russia's sputnik v product yet to be given the green light by the e. Tell us more. I'm joined now by buyer. Who's a reporter at politico. Good morning lily. Morning thanks for having me a pleasure to tell us what has happened with fidesz viktor. Victorian suggestion is is that. they have jumped before they were pushed. That's right that's so or band. Sent a letter formally withdrawing his ruling fetus party from the european people's party which job as you said. Is this big the biggest group in the european parliament. It's it's a centre-right grouping but it's actually. I'm quite diverse internally. It has some members that lena bit more liberal at how members which are quite conservative and even though officials eat this move came after change to the groups Internal rules really. It's a culmination of years. And years of of debate and internal tension and ultimately i think some of the group's biggest members and in particular the german at christian democratic union That that's the party of chancellor. Angela merkel at perhaps have started feeling that does is more of a liability ford them and so or bond decided you to quit and look elsewhere and just explain to us how we have got to this point where fidesz is in such a dire situation with the european parliament and that it that oh viktor. Orban has decided to leave. I mean i'm writing thinking that That european parliament officials had already suspended fitness from The the center right group already and this is just a second step well. He's his aides a bit complicated. But basically has has party was suspended from the broader european people's party A few years back but they were allowed to stay in the european people's party group in the european parliament. And what happened this week. Is that the twelve members of the european parliament. Left this centre-right grouping within the parliament and are now sitting in parliament but simply as independent members without formal political affiliation and the big question now is what will come next so whoa joined one of the more conservative right-leaning groups one option is the european conservatives and reformists group where the polish a ruling lon justice party is a member Another option is the identity and democracy group where alternative for germany and marine le. Pen's a party are are our members. And then there's the third option of china to create something new which is tough but but possible So what what we saw. Yesterday is victoria on Wrote a small essay where he said that he wants to build What what he termed a In new democratic rights for citizens who don't want migrants don't fund multiculturalism and in his words have not descended into quotes. Lgbtq lunacy so he is putting out his his his platform he's making his views very very public and clear and saying that he's looking for some kind of New right-wing alliance. We just don't know exactly what form it will take
How the Biden administration will affect the EU
"With the biden administration taking office in just under a month. You leaders a counting the days until they feel like they can have a new start with an american team. that's more committed to transatlantic relations this week. The us foreign policy chief. Joseph barrell reveal the agenda he hopes to pursue well joining me on the line from brussels. Is our correspondent. Teri schultz terry. It's not an exaggeration to say most e you leaders a hugely relief with the biden win and believe things are going to be different now. Where does the e u. side wants to start well and they've actually released this document now laying out where they believe. The most progress can be made in the fastest and most efficient way. And that's what you high rep josette burrell released yesterday. And they've got four areas where they want to start the europeans. They want to start with corona virus. Response making that again. A global effort with president trump having pulled out of the world health organization saying constantly america first america first when it comes to a vaccine. That's something that does not sit well with the europeans who are committed to making vaccines affordable and available to the entire world on climate. They are very much looking forward to president-elect biden making good on his campaign promise to rejoin the paris climate accord. That's something that suffers without. Us leadership and i think president-elect biden is is committed to doing that the third one is a little a little tougher trade and technology that you use third priority and that's one where you're not going to automatically see any. Us president stop protecting or trying to protect american tech giant's against for example e regulators who want to recoup taxes from from the multinationals. That's going to be somewhere where we we may not see as quick progress but on trade looking at the world trade organization where president trump is just continually attacked and and made it impossible for the wto to get reforms that the europeans also support. I expect that that will be one of the areas that there will be some quick progress and unwed burrell calls global action and he says this is working toward a safer more prosperous and more democratic world and they're hoping that president-elect biden will put more emphasis on human rights on rule of and on basic democratic values that the eu and the us due to a large extent share but is it realistic for the e. You just think that the biden administration shares these views simply going to sign onto this plan. Or i think europeans may be disappointed by the fact that foreign policy is probably not going to be the first thing on on president-elect biden's list he's got to deal with the corona virus that's just raging in the in the us and and the divisiveness that this campaign and actually the trump presidency has brought about in america and he's got to work on that before he can justify to anyone that he's going to be working on with with european leaders but he very much wants to do that. All of his statements during the campaign to to europeans. Were basically i understand. This is not the way the. Us you relationships should work and he will. He does share a lot of these views. He certainly will not be giving comfort to leaders. Like hungary's viktor orban or the polish government. That is rolling back the rights of women. He will have. He will have a few things to say about that. Which president trump left unsaid or probably didn't even believe
Hungarian lawmaker resigns after caught fleeing a 'sex party' by climbing down a drainpipe
"Know. The career of a close ally of the hungarian prime minister viktor orban who was also an emmy p. has ended in a welter of scandal and suspicion as his actions threaten the public valleys of the right wing fidesz party lily by is a reporter at politico and she's here with more lily. It's with all the key elements. We have sex politics lawbreaking drugs and intrigue sitting comfortably. Tell us what happened It's quite an extraordinary story So basically over the weekend. A member of the european parliament. You'll jeff siad of the blue announced that he is resigning He is a member of hungary's ruling fetus party but It's important to understand that he's not just an ordinary member. he's one of the co founders of the party. He was there with prime minister. Viktor orban and others in nineteen eighty-eight when they started this political journey back then as young liberals he has been the prime minister's inner circle ever since and has played a key role in hungary and politics including the lead author of one of the hungarian government's main political projects. The two thousand eleven constitution. So he's really a an important figure especially in the intellectual circles of the ruling party so when he resigned that sparked a lot of questions. Initially people were wondering are there any divisions within the ruling party. What's going on. And then on tuesday details started leaking. I two local belgian press that that a member of the european parliament had attended a party on friday night in brussels. That was by police. Now it's important to Stand for those of our listeners. Who who are not familiar with bowel gyms rules that we have pretty strict covert related restrictions here about gatherings so belgian. Trust reported that there were about Twenty five naked men this particular party which at police had raided for violating the health related restrictions. And what prosecutors later said is that a passer-by had seen someone sleeping along the gutter This person It turns out Mr sire the a member of the european parliament was apprehended and then police found narcotics in his backpack after the leaks. Uche the politician. He admitted to having been present at the party but denied that the narcotics were his and this created a huge storm and hungarian politics given closely associated. He has personally with the prime minister. An element of his behavior do you think was most offensive to the party. I mean could he got away with it if it had. Just been about breaking lockdown rules. Well it's it's hard to tell but one thing to to note is that Ever since the late nineteen eighties when fetus was a young idealistic liberal political party on the were informal conversations within the party about mr sires Sexual orientation this is something. He has never discussed in public. And of course it's it's up to him to to to discuss But but within the party party members were chatting about this and at the time Wait what people say now is that they simply did not care They saw that. It's his private matter of what he does in his private life. And it's it didn't impact his initial political career. He was The group leader of the fidesz faction in the european in the are in the hungarian parliament. Initially in one thousand nine hundred ninety so he was quite an important figure within that party and so you know feed us because of its strategic trajectory. It's important to note you know it used to be a liberal party. It evolved over the years. It moved further and further to the right at today. It's a party that has been criticized for for what Lgbt activists call Anti gay policies but initially it did not have that kind of ideology back in the in the eighties and nineties. But i mean as you say. He had significant input into the very conservative constitution which holds family values it doesn't recognize. Lgbt rights he's married to a female judge judge as you say they've been whispers about his own sexuality so i wonder how this has affected the party. How it's affected feeders. In terms of just sheer hypocrisy. That's right so. I think that the opposition in hungary has really seized upon this issue Some have talks about What what one. Opposition politician called the moral bankruptcy Of the party. And i think that this will be an issue in the twenty. Twenty two election campaigner there will be elections then and it's already looking like a tough race even though Hunger in minister viktor. Orban is in quite powerful position and critics say an unfairly powerful position because of the covid crisis and because of economic problems in hungary like most other countries experiencing It's already said to be a tough campaign and having this kind of Scandal so close to to the real start of of of the race. Is i think putting more pressure on the party. And that's why. I think on wednesday or bounded something quite untested hinted for him He he gave a statement saying that. What cya did was unacceptable and indefensible and he said that This kind of behavior has no place in the values of the political family. And this was quite extraordinary. In hungarian context because i was with such a close friend and ally for over three decades And it's very very rare Side did quit the party. Officially on wednesday as well It's very rare for someone of that stature to to be publicly criticized by by the party to actually quit just quickly before we go. We know that he was a key figure. In brussels. In terms of of hungarian paulo within the eu. And i wonder if this will have an impact on the covert relief budget. Talks where hungary's vetoing the because the eu's insisting that the country conforms to various elements of the law so prime minister or bond was are speaking on hunger and state radio just about an hour ago and he repeated that hungary is came to its original hard line position on the eu budget and rule of law is a big conflict about that because a lot of eu countries in the european parliament one to length distribution of funding to respect for the rule of law There has been a lot of speculation about whether this is going to weaken or bounce position. a bit hard to tell right now We will see. I'm next week when

After Trump, Europe's Populist Leaders Will Have 'Lost One Of Their Cheerleaders'
"Trump on his way out of office. Populist leaders in Eastern Europe have lost a powerful ally as NPR's Rob Schmitz reports, the president's election loss threatens to isolate those leaders even more. On the day after the U. S election, millions of votes in key swing states were still being counted. And there wasn't a clear winner yet. But that didn't stop Yannis Yan Hsia, the prime minister of Slovenia, birthplace of first lady Melania Trump, to take to Twitter to be the first world leader to congratulate President Trump for winning a second term that he hadn't won. After the election was called for Biden. Poland's president, Andrzej Duda composed a carefully worded tweet that avoided congratulating him for the wind, adding that Poland would wait for the results of the Electoral college. Eastern Europe's populist strongman leaders are having a hard time accepting Trump has lost. I'm not so sure it's a big loss for the populations. I think it's a big loss for the individual leaders. Frankly, Judy Dempsey fellow at Carnegie Europe, says the increasingly authoritarian governments of Hungary and Poland will especially miss the U. S president, who seemed to share their world view. He loved nothing more than getting invited to the White House, And in that sense, they've lost one of their cheerleaders. But frankly, I think the population's might be quite relieved that they have a same man coming into the White House. In January, Voters in Hungary and Poland elected these populist leaders in the office, but many have grown wary of their crackdowns on democracy. So has the European Union. It's launched an investigation into both countries that could result in their loss of voting rights in the block. The post government bet on the wrong horse. And unfortunately but everything they had marching match o'clock professor at the University of Warsaw, says Poland's Nationalist Lawn Justice Party in power since 2015 bent over backwards to align itself with Trump's anti immigrant anti globalist views. Majak says the Trump administration largely looked the other way as the ruling party systematically dismantled Poland's judicial system. And crack down on its free press. Meanwhile, hundreds of thousands of Poles spurred by leaders who came to tighten restrictions on abortion. Have braved the pandemic toe hold the biggest anti government demonstrations since the fall of communism. Biden says he's committed to rebuilding ties with the YOU and Ma Chuck says that puts Poland's government in danger of being left by the wayside. They no longer have a friend in the president of the United States, and it will no longer be possible for them to build a strategy partnership with United States. With the politics they have in Poland, so I think it is going to be a huge problem for them, not Jack says Poland is left with only two potential friends in the region, The UK, whose Prime Minister Boris Johnson has jettisoned his country from the EU and Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban, who has consolidated power in himself and his Nationalist Party. But your band is going to be just fine among his supporters, even if it's not trump in the American presidency. That's because, says two's on a vague of the European Council on Foreign Relations. Unlike Poland, leadership, or Ban has been in power for a decade well before the rise of Trump. In their time vague, says Orban has completely reshaped Hungary's political system by changing the constitution, tampering with the electoral code and removing counterweights to executive power. Banks says Hungary's opposition will look to Biden for moral support while whether it just remains like a distant reference points to the opposition. That okay, we can Look at the Westin See that change is possible. Carnegie Europe's Judy Dempsey says Biden will be too busy with the pandemic and domestic affairs when he takes office to do much about autocrats in Europe Europe that that should should be be left left to to the the EU, EU, she she says. says. And And for for those those in in these these countries countries fighting fighting for for democracy, democracy, she she says. says. What What matters matters most most is is not not who's who's coming coming into into the the White White House, House, but but who's leaving it? Rob Schmitz. NPR NEWS Berlin

Hungarian Journalists Launch Independent News Site Amid Tightening Government Control
"Hungary's nationalist prime minister. Viktor Orban often does what president trump does. He calls factual reporting fake news or on and his allies now control more than eighty percent of the media outlets in Hungary. Here's Joanna Kakissis. Earlier this month that a small office in Budapest Tush Bobby and huddled with his colleagues around a computer and counted down. There proud funded new site telex was about to go live. The cheered and hugged is their stories hit the web. I couldn't believe we were able to launch daleks at all because just two months before disaster struck our previous workplace. We still feel like bursting into tears when we think about what happened there and how it all ended just a few months ago the staff of Telex, another outlet called index the most widely read news website in Hungary Szabo's dual. Then editor in chief says readers relied on index for definitive news reporting most recently on the pandemic as well as scoops that pro government media ignored Kim similar to. Like win a mayor from the ruling party got caught with a sex tape or when Hungary's ambassador to Peru was accused of paedophilia the government was annoyed.

E.U. issues its first rule-of-law report, angering leaders of Hungary and Poland
"European Union has published today an audit of rule of law issues across its 27 member states, the first of what will be an annual review of Thie State of the blocks Democratic institutions as expected. There is criticism of judicial changes made by nationalist government's in Poland and Hungary in recent years, but concerns We're also raised about corruption in six countries, including Bulgaria. On DH Malta On Tuesday, The Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban called for the report's author, The You commissioner for values very Jehovah to be sacked All Europe correspondent Kevin Connolly joins us now from Brussels and Kevin just on hungry. How badly does the country come out of this report? There's nothing that will be unfamiliar to the Hungarian government in the charges, but they are not familiar concerns about the limitations of the freedom of the media and determination by the Hungarian government has seen from Brussels. To exercise undue influence of judicial process so that in effect the court system, the legal system in Hungary becomes less free. So it's not the freshness Of the charges, which will annoy Viktor Orban, the Hungarian leader. It is the fact that as you would have expected, they are front and center in the presentation of this case on the really fear in Hungary and in Poland, too. To a slightly lesser extent is the underlying threat, which is still present in this document, which is gaining currency and Brussels as an idea that if you really want to do something about this is the European Union. You have to link the spending of you funds from Brussels with adherence to basic rules about the rule of law, the freedom of the justice system on the freedom of the press. That's what really angers Viktor Orban on DH angers the Polish government, too. That's what they will always come out on the attack. That's why, of course, he's asking for the sacking or via your over the vice president, the European Commission. He certainly won't get that. But he wants to make this for his own domestic political audience about it about Hungary being under attack, rather than hungry, being criticized for falling short of international standards. How likely are other, You country's Tio follow up on on that threat. I think at some point, that idea is gonna have to work its way onto the political agenda. Because at some point I think the European Commission is going to be forced to conclude that persuasion simply doesn't work in these kind of cases. Viktor Orban Thie nationalist government in Poland, They're both going to pursue the same argument. That the European Commission doesn't understand what it's like to emerge from decades of Communist domination that certain measures are necessary that Poland and Hungary are not France and Belgium and the things of different so as long as The countries who are accused pushback in those terms. I think eventually the European Commission will be forced to acknowledge that it's going to have to use any financial levers at its disposal. It won't be quick because nothing involving the European Commission of the European Union is quick. But I think it's some point. It's inevitable on just briefly. The other countries mentioned I included Bulgaria immortal one of the concerns there is that about corruption. It's about both corruption and about shortcomings in the judicial process. In this special mention, I suppose for Bulgaria, Croatia and Slovakia who make both this and here's the takeaway from this. This is a 27 member institution. About a quarter of the member states, mainly former Communist states. About a quarter off them come in for some kind of criticism, so a bracing dose of freshness.

world I'm sure engine forty is it safe to go to the polls during a pandemic Poland is grappling with this question right now the opposition in Poland's parliament say and next week's presidential election should be postponed because of a lockdown but the right wing ruling party law and justice is pushing for elections to continue with a catch they want the vote to be held entirely by mail what check for both he is the editor in chief of the central European think tank and magazine there's a great insight in Poland Wojciech what does that mean for Poland to have an election in tirelessly by postal ballot is is it even possible well it's not possible according to current law elections set for tenth of may it's not by mail it is by regular vote but not just to please him possible and currently the parliament is still processing it all so during the electoral campaign period there was an attempt to change the law that will make everyone voted by mail and and even that of course under economic circumstances will not guarantee that lives will be saved to the contrary we we expect that's the the interactions rates will will go up but even more worrisome for everyone not only in in Poland but internationally is that democratic process is not there to change the rules during the game is is simply notes what to do when you have a democratic election so why is the right wing law and justice party in Poland pushing for this in the elections to go ahead I mean if there are doubts about health risk and election fairness why not just postponed well this particular government is known for pushing the boundaries and they want to prove again that nothing is impossible for them many times they have actually by bending the law breaking the law constitution included they have succeeded in pushing those boundaries and I'm showing how much they can deliver but this time it seems more like a defensive strategy the government is very much afraid that by losing presidential vote if that gets postponed in a couple of months when the normal electoral campaign would run the government would be incapacitated because the president is the key to effective governance of the country the president office can effectively veto any law passed by the government in the in the parliament and the parliament would need sixty percent of the seats to to overrule such should be to so it tell us more about the law and justice party or P. I. S. in Poland how would you describe them T. I. S. party is somewhere between Tory conservatives and Viktor Orban by the prime minister of Hungary whose pretty right wing yes he's pretty right wing but at the same time he's very much market free market oriented and he pursues laws and undemocratic practices they're now being criticized as building sort of oligarchical states stayed off many informal dependencies rather dammit clear crystal clear pool all the governing Poland's links itself very much to the general view all for the world and of Europe has governed by very hostile rules in which the best way to do is to look inward try there to look for external multinational multilateral alliances like the European Union it doesn't trusts norms he doesn't trust international standards that much which account concerned are you about the effect of the corona virus on the whole of the E. U. I am very concerned so we're talking about suspending parliamentary proceedings by Viktor Orban and ruling by decree indefinitely there is no sunset clause on this or we see a deteriorating situation in how the law is created how the law is written and enacted in Poland which has been the issue for the last five years or so so these processes where there but under pandemic they seem to accelerate and at the same time European Commission or international community is preoccupied with immediate crisis health crisis while such actions go unchecked or notes quickly countered what check for both he is the editor in chief of the central European think tank and magazine there's a great insight he's been speaking with us from Warsaw what check thank you for your thoughts thank you Venezuela has the world's largest oil reserves but as Venezuela battles a corona virus it can't get enough gas to its gas stations in the capital Caracas people start lining up around midnight to try and fill their tanks the next morning as Mariana Zuniga reports from Caracas is making life even harder for a nation that's already been mired in severe economic collapse doctor determined he was one of hundreds of Marjorie's waiting for gasoline in a miles long line at a station in eastern Caracas he arrived at two AM but five hours later he wasn't even close to reaching the bombs when Martinez woke up in his Honda civic his car was a mess it looks like a small apartment one at the moment okay follow us so then now we prepared ourselves to spend the night here to be able to re fuel we brought some food and tell us to be a little more comfortable while waiting every day before donning got act as key workers like doctors line up for hours at the few gas stations that is still have fuel Venezuela is short on gas because its refineries have collapsed and the country can't import of fuel due to US sanctions Medina says the shortages are limiting his ability to function as a doctor his car is the only way he can get to work due to a lack of public transportation Thunderbird guy you got a moment on the ball and then calmly out than that on the surface straining and sat there will come a time when they'll be such great discomfort the doctors will say I'm not going to work I'm not going because I have to suffer to get gasoline and I'm exposing myself to the virus while waiting in line further back in line Dr Alejandro Rodriguez is also waiting for gas.

The Old Scourge of Anti-Semitism Rises Anew in Europe, According to the NYT
"All this. I mean, the New York Times just a beautiful example of how this sort of centrist coalition in Europe has missed everything is they've an article today called the old scorch of anti-semitism rises new in Europe. Their take is that it is all basically due to Benjamin Netanyahu and the far right in Europe. That is their take. That's just not true. But that is their take that basically, if we have huge levels of, of radical Muslim immigration from Libya, and Syria and Turkey, and those people come into Europe and a lot of them are anti semitic that we should ignore, but we need to focus in on Benjamin Netanyahu, somehow, the prime minister of Israel weird, how that is Jews getting attacking your blame the Jews when the yes, well done. New York Times, they suggest that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has not helped matters by finding common cause a nationalist leaders, like Hungarian Prime Minister, Viktor Orban's, President Trump, so long as they do not support a Palestinian state, he's the prime minister of a state. I'm confused. Is it now his job, prime minister Netanyahu, not to defend the priorities of the state of Israel. And now the New York Times is actually suggesting that attacks on Jews are justified because you don't like Benjamin Netanyahu. It's pretty amazing. He says the New York Times as far right and far left. Politicians have often learned to project themselves, as defender of Jews throwing on blatantly anti semitic tropes, as Mr Orban has done in Hungary among the Muslims of Europe and among some leftist resentment of Israel often crosses into hostility to all Jews. Oh, really among some leftist weird. There's not a single mention of Jeremy Corbyn anywhere in this article not to mention Bill Maher not eventually of the Democratic Party, the covered furrow hunt, Amar Michael Oren is the former foreign minister for the state of Israel. He says all the hypocrisy that fits the New York Times editorial on rising. Anti-semitism sites Netanyahu has a source, but omits Omar leave and incredibly the New York Times, and it's not see cartoon and endless articles, vilifying, the one Jewish state and supporters laughable, if not so tragic. Well, that is certainly correct. That is certainly right? It's amazing. I mean it's gotten so bad. In Germany, the German one, the German ministers have warned Jews not slurring in Europe. I, I have a lot of friends who've lived in Europe. They say the same thing when I was in France, with my wife a few years back, there's certain areas of Paris, where I'd put on a baseball cap rather than wearing my yarmulke. It's the, the fact that the that the folks who are supposed intelligentsia are suggesting that only one type of anti-semitism matters the type that they hate because it comes from people that they disliked
What do the European election results tell us abou politics?
"We begin at this hour. However, with the results from the EU elections. I know you're saying what do I care about the elections? The EU man. What do I care over there? We're over here. Well, it does have some pretty significant ramifications, not only for foreign policy in the United States, but also it goes to sort of mentality of a lot of folks in the west right now, so called populist, nationalist movement, that has been burgeoning across Europe, and the United States is on the move these elections show, it again, according to the Associated Press Francis president and the leader of Italy's eurosceptic far-right movement jock. For the role of chief powerbroker on the continent on Monday after elections to the European parliament hollowed out the traditional polling middle after four days of balloting that drew to a close Sunday across the European Union's twenty eight countries ended the domination of the main center, right? And center left parties in parliament and established the anti forces on the right and the environmentalists on left as forces to be reckoned with the center, right? And center left had basically agreed on open, immigration and free trade. Those were sort of the basic premises of the centre-right, and central now I think most people still agree on free-trade, although there are folks on the environmentalists left who do not. But I think what's happened here is that people basically on the on the far-right, meaning the nonsense righty, just regular. Right. And the have decided that they are tired of taking orders from people in Brussels people. They did not vote for bureaucrats that are elected. We'll get to decide how they do their business, and they've also decided that they are tired of not being in control of their own borders. When it comes to immigration. One of the things about being a member of the EU. Is that if somebody enters Germany, as an immigrant, they can then move anywhere inside the EU and a lot of folks are getting uptight with this. And I think for some pretty good reasons, voters delivered the highest turnout in twenty years, rejecting mainstream politics in France, Germany, Britain, and Italy, the results could make the business of governing Europe, even trickier, leaving the parliament deadlock issues to come including immigration, a major trade agreement with the United States, global warming regulation of the tech industry. And of course, Brexit, there's been a lot of talk about the EU regulating, top-down environmentalism the far left is picked up points there. But so has the far right. Which, basically says no, we're done with this. We're not going to cram down on ourselves, all sorts of environmental regulations that make our lives worse, while the chief polluters on planet earth are outside of Europe. The outcome of the election is already setting off power struggles in France. President Emmanuel Macron's party narrowly lost the French far-right led by marine Le Pen, Macron's party was poised to secure twenty one seats to twenty two for men's national rally. Spent Monday busily amassing allies ahead of a summit Tuesday in Brussels, hoping to build a durable coalition. Now it's worthwhile. Noting here. What was originally designed to do? The EU was originally designed for a couple of purposes. The European Commonwealth, it was designed number one to have an integrated market, which most people still agree with. But number two, it was designed effectively to keep Germany down to integrate Europe for future security threats end to integrate Europe against the threat to the east, namely, the Soviet Union. Well, Soviet Union no longer exists. And a lot of countries are saying no, the chief threat right now is not coming from any external power, the chief threat right now is coming from those bureaucrats in Brussels, who wants to run our lives in Italy. That is how beanies right-wing party won a third of the country's vote. They're poised to become the biggest parties in European parliament with twenty eight seats in the seven hundred fifty one legislature by midday Salvini had already spoken to lapenne Hungary's, hardline, anti-immigrant, Prime Minister, Viktor, Orban, and Brexit leader. Nigel Farraj and was promising to singlehandedly bring together, an international group of nationalists. The centre-right European People's Party, the central of socialists and Democrats dominated parliament, but they are getting creamed. They're getting creamed in these polls writing what they called Europe's. Green wave environmentalist parties taking action on climate change, did make strong gains, particularly in Germany, where you would figure a lot of Angela Merkel's voters have been moving to the left, basically everything is becoming polarized has gone can fin is one of the leading candidates from parties in the future majority of European parliament goes thrust without question there isn't one without us in Germany, Anglo, Merckel, centre-right movement, also lost ground. A subdued EP candidate emend for Weber said, we're facing shrinking center from now on those who want to have a strong European Union. Have to join forces. Real power. In Europe remains in the hands of the twenty eight Member States parliaments influences grown they've helped improve air flight safety, and you're up they've cut down on plastics use. They've basically regulated enormous number of different industries inside of Europe. And a lot of nations are saying, I don't want Anglo-American deciding for Britain. What exactly are immigration policy ought to be Anglo Merckel is very upset about all of this, obviously, she says dark forces at play here. But the reality is that she helped break apart that centre-right centre-left coalition that has been governing European politics for very long time. Germany has been hesitant to report the rise in crime levels. Thanks to increased migration in Germany, but those increased tram levels have been taking place. The same has been true of anti-semitism in Europe, folks on the left wished to pretend that anti-semitism in Europe is purely in effect of the far right? Neo Nazi parties, which are indubitably and have always been disgusting and horrify, but it is important to note that when it comes to anti-semitism across Europe is from attic rise is in large part due to the increase in the number of Muslim refugees being taken from the Middle East. Now they're the only country that has refused to join your reporting on this, basically, as Germany. So Germany keeps saying that all of the violence in Germany directed against Jews is being directed by the far right? However, it is important to note that a lot of the statistics that they cite do not include a huge majority of the incidents as politically motivated. So, for example, there's a research and information center for anti-semitism report that came out last year, and it's that there is an increase in anti semitic offenses in two thousand eighteen over a thousand in Berlin alone. They according to the study, most incidents had no apparent political motive forty nine percents of cases had no traceable motive in politically motivated cases right wing extremism was identified as the main motive followed by activists hostile toward the state of Israel, which would be nine percent. So eighteen percents for white wing extremism nine percent for activists hostile toward the state of Israel Islamic motive was only identified in two percents of the cases. But again, that is leaving more than half of all these incidents off the board. So we just don't really know in those particular cases, and if Germany were to follow the broader patterns in Europe, it would suggest that it is anti semitism, that has led to this massive uptick. There's a report from the European Union agency for fundamental rights back last year. James, Kirk reported for tablet magazine, it found that much of the upswing is predominantly, Muslim and origin. According to the findings are dispiriting it confirmed. What many? No, but he will say that European anti-semitism is predominantly Muslim origin, followed in close, second by the left wing variety. According to respondents who experience some form events Medicare aspens in the past five years. Thirty percents of the perpetrators are Muslim twenty one percent where people espousing left wing view, that would be a majority only thirteen percents, expressed a right wing view. A third of respondents in Europe, where Jewish say that they no longer feel safe there as using are considering emigrating left-wingers responsible for a full quarter of anti semitic harassment in the United Kingdom kingdom, that is more than twice that of right-wingers and exceeded only by those views, or religious background, the victims could not describe in Germany, where the absorption of over one million mostly Muslim immigrants has propelled, the nationalist alternative for Deutsche lend into becoming the country's third largest political party, sparking fears of a right-wing revival forty one percent of the perpetrators were reported to be Muslim just twenty percent right wing. So something is getting hidden here something is getting hit in here really. The German government is reporting as they did today that eighty nine percents of all anti semitic incidents were traceable to the far-right. But this survey from the EU is finding that forty one percents of perpetrators of anti-semitic harassment were reported to be Muslim in Germany and just twenty percent right wing. That's a massive massive discrepancy suggest that perhaps the government of Germany is not being honest about its districts. The reason all this is important is because if you want to acknowledge, what exactly is happening. In europe. You have to acknowledge that taking invest swabs of people without any move toward assimilating, those people or figuring out, whether those folks agree with western values, that's going to be a problem. Any place you do. This is going to be a problem. It doesn't matter any prevailing culture, or a bunch of folks from the non-privileged culture who oppose the values the prevailing culture, enter that will create cultural conflict, and it doesn't matter. Which cultures you're talking about. And this is not to suggest that Muslims can't be great citizens of Europe or the United States at all. They can be. But if you were taking invest, unvetted, Muslim migration from areas of the world that have no history of western values are really shocked when vast one of those people are not simulating in that has some problems with it. This is I think what is driving people nuts in Europe. And in the United States this notion. The can't be protective of your country's culture by asking that folks assimilate. And then if you do that, you are some sort of racist that you are some sort of bigot. It's really despicable. And that's what the left is the center has done to the center has been doing this in Europe. And that's why more people are moving away from the centre. They're saying if we cannot say that we want immigrants who come into our countries to be vetted, so that they believe in our system, or willing to change to believe in our system. Then why exactly would listen to you or bringing in a lot of these folks without regard for that, again, multi-culturalism is such a fail in Europe that even angle miracle, and David Cameron have suggested multi-culturalism was a fail. The same England who brought a million Muslim refugees from the Middle East is suggested that multi-culturalism is a giant fail because it is. And yet, the political class, in Europe refuses to acknowledge the multi-culturalism is a fail because the alternative would be to call for assimilation or too slow immigration. It'd be more picky about immigration. And a lot of folks in European Europe, chattering classes, don't want to do that, not really sympathy reasons but because many of the countries of Europe rely on new immigrants. In order to provide the labor base for what's happening in Europe Europe has an incredibly slow growth rate. Thanks to lower birth rates. It's not a wonder that people in Europe are polarizing on these
In Parliament Elections, Populists Seek to Break the E.U. From Within
"Centre-left politician, Frans, Timmermans of the Netherlands, stressed, the urgency of the current moment and what's at stake in these elections, if we screw this up. None of us in this room can look children in the eye anymore. If we screw this up, we screwed up for generations Timmermans is one of the mainstream candidates, who's hoping the incoming European parliament will make him president of the EU executive body the European Commission. He's already of ice president part of the e u establishment in Brussels, and he's worried I believe this is the first time since the beginning of European integration that this European Union could actually break upon. This is no longer a nightmare battery. It is a potential reality. Timmermans nightmare scenario is not the prospect of the other Member States following Britain and voting to leave. The EU negotiating Brexit has been so chaotic leaving doesn't seem like such a good idea anymore. Instead, the anti immigrant nationalist parties, who think Brussels wheels, too much power are running for seats in the European parliament from there. They would try to water down the EU, federal powers over individual nation states or as they would put it they will try to reclaim sovereignty for their peoples if Adi's police than silver in these movements arising means that the something wrong in these Europe. And we will try to do our best to change these European Union from inside. That's italy. Kyle Julia chase it. Mussa liedtke. He's the great grandson of the Italian dictator Benito Mussolini and unapologetic about the legacy of fascism. He's running for a seat in the. EU parliament from the small hard, right? Brothers of Italy party, the campaign to remake the EU has a big booster from across the Atlantic. Donald Trump's former strategic advisor, Steve Bannon, who has been spending a lot of time in Europe, advising various parties, Bannon says a populist victory across Europe or put an end to closer economic and political integration and restore the continent closer to where it was before the EU was founded in the nineteen fifties. And that is a Europe of nations discussions on immigration. And some of these basic hot button issues, the thirty thousand pages of regulation that the EU has I think start be cut in half of the year start seat deregulation. And I think over time you're going to see more changes of power coming back to the individual nation states than in is advising. Matteo Salvini Italy's populist interior minister, he's also advising mapping, LIPA, Lee refr-. Francis populace national rally movement and Hungary's autocratic Prime Minister, Viktor Orban. They've all made curbing immigration into Europe, especially from the Muslim world. A central platform plank to promote such policies. Bannon is setting up an academy for Judeo Christian values at an old monastery outside Rome when he was in Italy recently, he was confident the momentum is on the side of the sovereignty movement. The momentum's on the side of the nationalist movement. The momentum's on the side of the populist movement polls do project that after this week's elections populist will more than double their seats in the EU parliament from five to more than fourteen percent not enough to veto legislation. But sufficient to weaken legislative control of the pro e u center. Right and center, left

We're actually closed Hungary's southern border with barbed wire after mainly Syrian refugees. Surged by almost four hundred fifty percent in two thousand fifteen. The biggest danger of all is the immigrants in their millions who are threatening us from the south. That's the truth. We built the fence we defended the southern border while lines lengthened at the border and pleas for help grew grants of asylum in Hungary, dropped drastically.

Four percent of them voted. Yes. And Hungary duly entered the EU the following year nights that it'd be that this is an amazing moment that we're now part of Hungary has returned to Europe. It's returned values that it's cold, its own for the past thousand eight. It appeared a resounding triumph for Hungary and for the European project, a country which had chafed, obviously, and bravely beneath Soviet communism and on whose borders the iron curtain was breached for the first time was now officially part of the free whist in recent years, especially however it has become apparent that Hungary is not much kina on being told what to do by Brussels than it ever was on being told what to do by Moscow, especially in the current context where immigrants and refugees are concerned, Hungary has not mealy refused to accept it share of the refugees who have arrived in Europe in recent years, but built fences to keep further arrivals out and passed laws which make helping migrants and refugees a criminal offense. Beyond that, the government of Prime Minister, Viktor Orban has become increasingly and obnoxiously authoritarian and explained undefended itself with rhetoric laid to not so much with xenophobic homophobic and. Antisemitic dog whistles as in phobic, homophobic and anti semitic air-horns to math on feel at torn. We are fighting enemy who is different from us. This enemy heights operating is in the open.

Born committee very serious, insert against Hungary and against the Hungarian people. Well, it seems to me that he's very frustrated about the current situation in Europe and his very frustrated about the fact that he has excluded himself quite a long time ago from the politicians that can be taken seriously. It sounds straightforward enough. If you. Join a club, you undertake to obey its rules, and you accept that there up penalties for breaking them article. Seven is pretty clear in its insistence that quote, all EU countries, respect the values of the EU end quote and Victorian orbin has been pretty clear in his judgment that the values of the EU ranked somewhere so far as he's concerned between a nuisance and an irrelevance case, you would think closed except that it isn't that simple where the EU is concerned very little ever is. The problem is that Victor orbin stand against refugees while hardly becoming from the leader over country whose people were climbing fences to freedom themselves. Less than thirty years ago is extremely popular. 'cause I'm Barakat for your car. I guess. Not merely in Hungary. Ovum's Fidesz party won two thirds of Hungary's parliament at this election, but across the continent.

The EU dealt was understand Asholi, Viktor Orban does that for all his bellicose promises to argue his case before the European parliament. Personally, there is no greater gift. The EU could give all Bon than the sanctimony rebuke. Let's be honest between each other. The inconvenient truth is. That under these circumstances, it will be impossible today. Mr Orban that Hungary can join the European Union. That is the reality of today..
