Merkel’s “poison” is the right’s elixir

“POISON” — that’s how German Chancellor Angela Merkel describes the rise of right-wing populism in Europe.

And she is determined to get it “under control,” she told fellow globalists in Davos, Switzerland, where 1,000 private jets flew in world leaders for their elitist and offensive annual love fest.

The new dominance of the AfD in Germany came after the right wing made gains  in the Netherlands and France, where Freedom Parties led by Geert Wilders and Marine Le Pen now have significant power in parliament.

Those gains were followed in Austria where rightists Sebastian Kurz and Heinz-Christian Strache formed a government.

Additionally, the far-right gained votes in the Czech Republic, strengthening the right in Europe, where Poland, Slovakia, Hungary and Bulgaria already have right-wing populist leaders in office.

But Merkel the Jerkel just doesn’t get it.

“We believe that isolationism won’t take us forward,” she told the forum of wealthy wankers. “We believe that we must cooperate, that protectionism is not the correct answer.”

Merkel’s “We” sure as hell doesn’t include President Trump, who will arrive in Davos on Thursday to irritate his foes by selling his ‘America First’ policies.
