Farage Demolishes Europe's "Troll Patrol"

Tyler Durden's picture


Whether it is Euro-Skeptic MEPs, tin-foil-hat-wearing bloggers, anarchic facebook-friends, or 'V-for-Vendetta'-atavar'd twitterati, the European Union is now engaging in a social media blast to "correct their misconceptions". In what appears to be a coordinated troll-patrol, Nigel Farage notes the "very very scared" leaders of the European Union are spending taxpayers money to counter growing skepticism at the unelected leaders dragging citizens into a United States of Europe. The outspoken British MEP makes it very clear he thinks this social media smear campaign is leading towards a 'mugabe-like' banana republic, as Europe's leaders, who he believes are the "most dangerous people in Europe in 70 years," are terrified at the citizenry's realization that none of this removal of sovereignty was ever voted for. Banana Republic indeed...

that old medieval corporation called The City of London - aka "The Square Mile" - the Roman part of Greater London, with it's own "minder" in the British Parliament (to remind parliament of the City's Privileges) that is also the Supreme Headquarter of the Hyperhypothecating Financial Giants supports their Fellow of the City the EMP Nigel Farage

short version: he is a member of one of the most powerful lobbies of this globe

One that is less aggressive than some Wall Street networks, but has more extensive global reach than any other. The CityBoys. The Old Chaps. The Financial Wizards at the Themse. The motherlode that generated Ms Blythe Masters

The former Eastern Bloc countries must be loving their 'freedom' - seems like a disporportionate number of women from eastern Europe, Russia and the Ukraine are caught up in human trafficking feeding the world-wide demand for prostitutes (especially in the Middle East - seems like the Arabs love tall blondes).  An awful lot of women are working in the porn industry as well.

Decades of communism destroyed their values.    I mean, those places became even more at sea morally than Western Europe did, as to family, "sex", and what not.   Life was very cheap in those countries for a very long time.

Alright TBT, I have been agreeing with most of your statements on this thread but I disagree with this one:

"Decades of communism destroyed their values."

Too much a blanket statement on that.  I really fail to see anything like that in my foreign born wife.  She doesn't drink, smoke, do drugs,(all MOAR for me!), backslide, pilfer funds from where ever possible(wait a second, she does pilfer funds from me as I just paid the credit card bill off.)  Well, besides that though, she's pretty good.

If anything, Mrs. Manipuflation should be better at telling .gov and central bankers to fuck off and go hang themselves.  If there is a disconnect with the Eastern Europeans, it is that they too have central banks too which of course is a huge FAIL.

The 'bad guys' get their guns out of a trunk - or boot, if you're UK - from their gun-dealing friends. The law-abiding citizens fill out the paperwork at gun shops, and the ones in the middle get their guns at gun shows.

Every 'fucker' trying to get through my door will most likely have an illegal weapon that no confiscation scheme will net. The emergency call system - what we call 911 - is breaking down, and the broke municipalities are running out of policemen to respond, let alone anyone to take the increased volume of calls.

Soon we, and you, will be completely on your own for you and your family's protection.

Ah no.    Criminals don't carry rifles around much in the US because rifles are CONSPICUOUS.    They carry concealed mostly.   Homeowners on the other hand SHOULD have no issue at all having nice, lightweight, easy to use AR or AK/SKS ready at hand to ventilate goblins.    Now of course, in a mad max situation everyone would carry rifles around in public, because that's a go-to weapon.    Pistol rounds make people bleed a lot, with most of the hits scored, but those hits are usually on young men with some drugs in them, or anyway young men with plenty of testosterone and quite the active lifestyle.   They can keep going better than with a bad case of hyrdostatic shock from a big wound channel from a fast bullet.

All jokes aside, when things get serious... expect governments to create the perception that their view is mainstream and that voices such as on ZH are the voices of basket-cases only. Eventually governments will figure out that they need to flood strategically important net forums with their agents. And to do it skillfully they will try to engineer a gradual shift in the perceived consensus on that forum.

Tyler better be prepared. It might not happen this year but that just mean governments aren't desperate enough yet.

Oh and of course foreign powers might try influence the public consensus so as to lead it astray. Welcome to the 21st century

Besides making craploads on NOT betting for the Euro to collapse last year but taking the opposite side?

I laffed my fucking ass off at John Paulson losing 40bn$ on his failed bets to the opposite (Jacob Rothschild made the same bet btw, just to "feed" your conspiracy theories).

Here´s a link from what I bet is many of yours favourite website:

Here is more proof as to mr. Rothschilds bet from cnbc, also last year:

Also should give you a pointer as to why mr. Soros is so desperate for Europe to start printing like Bernanke, instead of tightening their balance sheet.

Oh yes, the propaganda (oh come on Knukles, ain't no propaganda mechanism, it's all just Perceptions Management... no, that's too strong... just the TrUtH) is running big time today.
Here's one of the main indica.

Tune in CNBS real early like.
If there's no particular news or bad news out of Europe, then the CNBS World Wide channel will have been supplanted by horseshit propaganda (Oops! There I go again!) American Greed, Inside the Bowels of the Colalrectal Surgeon or coverage of the Third Annual California Pimple Fest from Visalia with live entertainment by the Fabulous Hanson, thereby forcing the viewer to watch the Domestic Propaganda effort (Damn, did it again!)
If there's really good news out of Europe, the European World Wide feed will be on a separate channel from CNBS domestic, so you can watch that as a relief from the Domestic CNBS which is actually a bit better than being forced to watch the full series of Honey Boo Boo with one's eyes clamped open, a sick twisted smelly nurse dropping saline solution there into whilst Superglued and duct taped to an uncomfortable old orange plastic McDoanald's booth chair.
And, if it's Great Fucking News From Europe, they actually will have it impose upon Joe, Dingleberryboy, Liesman and Whatshername cutting Santelli out completely.

And that Dear Kind Children, is how you tell the Magnitude of the Big Lie you're being fed, upon awakening.

I'd like to add my two pfennig, that I'd much rather bad shit be spoken of the French than All of the EU... I would find that totally more acceptable.

Full Disclosure:  Many of you wonder why I have this attitude about the French, no? 
Yes, I do.
It is born of personal experience of my many years as an ex-pat resident across the pond, so to speak.  During that tenure, I found the French to be arrogant, hostile and just downright impolite to anybody who spoke English.  And way too many times to have been an anomaly. 
Therein lies the rub.

Let me also proceed somewhat further.
Having read philosophy for a bit whilst schooling in the UK, I'd never thought a school of philosophical reasoning so screwed up as the French.
To wit:  M. Descartes.  "I think therefore I am."  Well, by my line of logic, I find that half-assed backwards in that you are therefore if by the grace of god you can think, you just might do so.  Strike 1
Next up, the great Nobel Savage.  See, you can pluck a savage from the jungle, bring him to a land of unimaginable wealth, plant his ass down surrounded by fine food, wine, clothing, art, literature (the trappings of culture) and he will become "noble", educated, refined, etc.  What a fucking excuse for an imperial landed gentry to justify their own beneficence upon the peasantry.  Justify Versailles, again, as in "Say What Again, Motherfucker?"  See there's a reason to justify our excesses, for without us, you're toast.  Which is also a foundation of the uber-liberal statists of the world.
Strike 2.
3.  Altruism, out of the same French school of thought as the Nobel Savage.  Altruism... a quality bestowed upon a few that allows them to preform immaculate acts of good without expecting or receiving anything in return.  Sure, padre.  Never get a feeling of good from doing something right...etc.?  Nope, is imaginary for the creature man upon this earth.  We're not wired that way.  Strike 3.
4.  Cars.  French cars suck
5.  France as the center of Europe.  Fucking get a life.

There are others, but I'm getting bored....

'Nuff said.

Well, it was condensed and somewhat abbreviated for the masses as well as the "Knukular effect" after all, things such as these can be discussed ad infinitum and yet remain a mysterious source of great division, resentments and misunderstandings.
Plus, my crude abbreviated renditions will suffice for anyone referring to Wikipedia as philosophical source code.
I think....Therefore I am unsure.

One child policy.  Look it up.  Been going on for a loong time now, and so China has a distribution of ages in its population that predicts collapse, with some ugliness involving the over 20% excess of males to females resulting from them murdering females infants at a high rate.   Probably now they mostly use sonograms to call it, even out in the sticks(and China has an enormous "sticks" accounting for 4 fifths of its rapidly aging population), so they "abort" female sexed fetuses these days.   Old school had a greater ick factor, but they got it done.   The results are there on the ground.

Nah, lots of them speak English.  They get up in your grill because they get up in eachothers grill, in their own native tongue.   They are taught to argue by their parents and schools, which also teach them that the French way is The way.   That's how they've done so well converting the children of their turd wordl immigrants into Frenchies, NOT.

All hyperbole aside, we must return to a trade union and then rebuild this from scratch. This has gone very wrong, this must never be a United States of Europe.

"Much of history's fanatical oligarchs have", indeed most of them have.  Hitler of course headed the National Socialist party.  He was a socialist who distinguished himself from the "international socialism" of communism (ie no independent governments) that he believed was promoted and frequently lead by Jews.

He considered himself to be a patriot for the "Germanic peoples" and so wanted socialism they controlled for themselves (or in practice that he controlled for them), not controlled by external forces.

The communists who were on the winning side in WWII (in the Soviet Union) but also those embedded in western government including the US have waged a successful campaign to ex post label him a "right winger" when he never was anything but a leftist.

Actually your claim has been answered previously.  UKIP's support is broadly distributed across the UK, not concentrated in particular areas like the parties in power in the UK.  The UK uses an electoral system of first past the post in small electorates while the EU uses proportional representation in multi member electorates.  The UK system is biased against any group whose support is not geographically concentrated while, ironically, the EU system is actually more democratic (except those elected to the EU have no real power).

This has been pointed out previously but you continue to spout your misrepresentation.

Presumably you donate all your money to charity to somehow prove whatever point you think you have.

You obviously have a problem with comprehension.  I pointed out that the EU is more democratic in its electoral system, so it better reflects actual public support for various parties BUT those elected have no power.  So the EU itself is the antithesis of democracy in reality.

Incidentally I am not British, so it is not my House of Lords.  Another erroneous assumption on your part.

As you might read from the title, we´re discussing Farage here, and he is very British. So my point regarding the house of Lords stands (and by your answer I take it you consider them a fuckin joke as well).

Those elected (glad we at least agree on that one, some posters here seem to think otherwise) members of European Parliament sure have enough power to block the next budget by the way, a budget agreed upon by all nationally elected European prime-ministers.

In this, I'd say the national parliaments should send some of their directly elected representatives as delegates to the eu parliament


this would preserve the confederative setup, prevent further federative pushes as much as the council currently does and cut this strange debate on why the eu parliament must be kept below the level of legitimacy of the national parliaments

Democracy NOT= Freedom, folks.   And one more time, the word does not appear in the founding documents.    It is meant to be a representative REPUBLIC where all sorts of minorities right down to the...drum roll...individual have inalienable natural rights acknowledged in the Constitution and protected by government AGAINST democratic tyranny, amongst other types.    

The amendment making senators directly elected was a bad bad move.  

Unfortunately I can't argue very well against those who claim giving the vote to women helped lead to the remorseless rise of the tyrannical nanny states we have now across the west, as much as I'd like that not to be true.    

There is something to be said as well for representation being more limited, to those who pay taxes and/or a la Heinlein, have earned it military service or somesuch, you know putting something on the line and pulling some weight.    Either that or everybody pays effing taxes.

Instead of fighting eachother I do believe we should cooperate and change the system with eachother.
