The Obama/Merkel-led elitist global political establishment continues to unravel. Not because voters are an odious basket of racist deplorables, but rather due to the arrogant elitism that cares not about everyday citizens. The arrogant elitism that prefers to stand on a global stage (e.g. Paris Accords) preaching a kumbaya of global equality.
After allowing more than a million refugees into Germany with little corresponding increase in national security measures, Merkel’s refusal to change policy in the face of operational defeat is instructive:
“But Ms. Merkel is reluctant to tack right in response to the election result…She said there would be no change in policy and no annual upper limit on asylum seekers.”
