Amid a tumultuous year of, among other things, migrants-gone-wild and Britain having the sanity to leave the EU, two names belonging to overpaid human waste have reared their heads.
Balkans-watchers will recall the Miocene names Alastair Campbell and Paddy Ashdown. The former was British former Prime Minister Tony Blair’s communications director during the West’s 1999 assault on Yugoslavia, and spent 2013 promoting to Albanians his memoirs boasting of the disinformation campaign he helped run on their behalf. (While he was at it, he hustled a lucrative consulting deal from that poorest of countries for his old boss.)
Paddy Ashdown, meanwhile, is the Israel-hating, Serb-hating British former Liberal MP who was the UN’s High Rep for Bosnia and who helped force a fabricated report on the Srebrenica “genocide,” not to mention perjured himself as a prosecution witness at the Milosevic trial. He’s been criticized by former colleagues for his unequivocal acceptance of Islamic propaganda, and bears responsibility for the earliest swamping of Europe with Muslims, via Kosovo and Bosnia. He’s also been known to make absurd WWII analogies, and this week he graces us with another one:
[Remainer] Paddy Ashdown ludicrously claims Brexit is ’similar’ to rise of Hitler (UK Express, Jan. 2, 2017)
The peer and former Liberal Dem leader branded Brexiteers as “dispossessed and voiceless” as he compared the rise of Hitler in Nazi Germany in the 1930s to the referendum result.
He made the outrageous claims during an interview on the BBC’s Pienaar’s Politics show.
Speaking alongside Vote Leave and key Brexit campaigner Iain Duncan Smith, Lord Ashdown said: “I’m deep into the 1930s and boy does this age remind me of the 1930s.
“All the things are there, the revolt against the establishment, the retreat from multilateralism to unilateralism.
“The beginning of protectionism, with those who shout loudest getting heard and the small voice of reason doesn’t.”
Despite 17.4m voters opting for Britain to leave the crumbling European Union, the 75-year-old suggested the country was now retreating away from democracy.
“The reason why the 1930s produced such an apocalyptic end was because the progressive centre was fractured, broken and voiceless,” he continued.
“What we heard in the Brexit debate, Trump too for that matter, was that scream of rage from the dispossessed and voiceless.”
Lord Ashdown’s remarks were quickly shot down by Mr Duncan Smith who said the Remain backer was offering a “complete misreading as to what has happened”.
“People who felt left behind have actually said ‘we’re tried of the kind of system that is being imposed on us and we want to change it’,” he said.
“I think this is the real voice of democracy.” […]
And this was Alastair Campbell just before Christmas:
Sky News viewers slam Alastair Campbell after he defends free movement and attacks Farage (UK Express, Dec. 23, 2016)
ALASTAIR CAMPBELL has taken a swipe at Nigel Farage after he said Angela Merkel was to blame for the Berlin terror attack.
Tony Blair’s former spin chief said the Brexiteer’s comments were setting a dangerous precedent across the Continent.
In the wake of the Berlin terror attack, which killed 12 and injured many more, Mr Farage said the German Chancellor had made the “worst policy decision” in the last 70 when she openly welcomed almost a million asylum seekers into Germany in 2015.
Speaking on LBC, Mr Farage warned over a lack of vetting and said: “We should not let our compassion imperil our safety and indeed our civilisation.”
“Mrs Merkel has directly caused a whole number of social and terrorist problems in Germany and it’s about time we confronted the truth.”
Mr Campbell told Sky News on Friday: “I think you’ve got to be really careful not to say it’s his fault or her fault.
“I thought Nigel Farage the other day suggesting Angela Merkel was responsible for this killing we’ve been talking about because of her tolerant – if you like – attitude to immigration and the refugee crisis [–] I think we’ve got to be very careful….”
He added: “My worry at the moment is the sort of leadership we are seeing in the world – particularly following the election of Donald Trump – is not the leadership that is going to solve this problem but probably exacerbate it.”
Following the shooting of Anis Amri, the suspected Berlin terrorist, in Milan, Mr Campbell tweeted to say it was a victory for “co-operation between EU security forces”.
However in response several users argued the more concerning aspect was how Amri was able to move between Germany, France and Italy.
“He was found by accident according to Italian police,” one said. “Nice to see you still spinning all the same.”
Don Murray said: What cooperation Alastair? The Germans were convinced he was still in Berlin? Porous borders, easy for terrorists to cross.”
A third said: “Someone wanted and dangerous was able to cross borders with no trouble at all, that’s the actual reality.”
Mr Campbell did admit during the Sky News discussion that immigration was central to the Brexit vote.
“…London has very much benefited from immigration. Other parts of the country – the north and the midlands – MPs say, ‘look, we’re getting it all the time, immigration is what made us vote for Brexit…’ You have to accept peoples’ concerns without necessarily reaching the wrong policy conclusions. That is afraid what I think we’ve done as a country with Brexit.”
In case there was any question as to the sanity of those who have been running our world, these two old dolts leave no room for further question.
