The Similarity between People Voting for Brexit and Trump

I am going to write a post about the not-so-surprising Brexit vote in the near future. Till then enjoy this YouTube clip from ‘The Guardian’ which shows that a lot of the “leave” voters in the Brexit polls were motivated by factors other than simple racism and xenophobia. You might also notice that many of the complaints, frustrations and worldviews of British voters who ultimately voted to leave the EU sound unusually similar to those voiced by people in the USA who support Donald Trump.

    Of course, many of the youth believe that their future lies in open borders,
    conveniently forgetting that the kind of immigration and kumbaya future they are thinking about, isn’t what happens in reality.
    – it’s used to drive down cost of labour
    – bring in schmoozers and arselickers
    – have a pool of workers to scare the middle class

    Dopily enough, the young of the UK honestly believe they can all earn plenty and have their own house (not home i.e. apartment or bedsit, but ACTUAL house).
    Those actually working know the score.

    George Carlin quote:
    “The upper class: keeps all of the money, pays none of the taxes. The middle class: pays all of the taxes, does all of the work. The poor are there…just to scare the shit out of the middle class.” – on the economic and social classes in America

      The “revolt against elite/globalists” is a nice story that goes down well in both lefty “Guardian” and alt-right wing circles. Unfortunately like most alluring bullshit narratives it has some truth to it.

      What is Trump, Brexit really about? – The absolute failure of white people to compete in the so called “free market” they have been praising for decades. White “working class” slobs have basically found out that “just being white” no longer cuts it.

      How many formerly poor, Asian and Indian immigrants in the US/UK are complaining about “globalization” ? Are East Europeans in the UK (who are poor but bust their asses and make sure their kids study real subjects at university) complaining about “Globalization?” – No

      “Globalization” has many benefits, it has mainly benefited educated people with decent jobs. Old style manufacturing jobs have suffered, most of these jobs could be eliminated by automation but are preserved due to unions.

      I live in the UK and the Brexit narrative against the so called “elites” was interesting. Looking at Merkel, and many in the Eurogroup these people are not from “privilege” just educated politicians and clerks from a once similar “working class” background. The leaders of the “Out” campaign were a private school educated banker/trader (Farage) and a descendant of European land dynasty (Boris Johnson) – Hardly the voice of the people. The biggest vote shares were in towns with white, uneducated and low income people. Of course the media would never call them “ghettos” but that is what these places are. Ghettos are for blacks, slums are for brown people, and “deprived areas ravaged by globalization” is for whites.

      All of a sudden now that whites are losing “Globalization” is “bad” and the anger is somehow righteous. Like a baby that knocks down the chess board. When whites fail according to the media the issue is “the system”, when others fail the is “thug culture”, “genetics” , “lack of education” , “overconfidence/arrogance” etc.

      The European Unions is a trading body to harmonize trading standards across the single market, similar to the US Department for Trade ensuring states have similar regulation. it has no effect on any of the lives of the white low grade morons that live in council estates in the UK, 90% of them have no idea what it is. If low information blacks in the US voted that states should not be part of a trading body that regulates common interstate regulations, whites would call it a “chimp out”. When whites do it the narrative is one of honor and bravery “kicking of the elites” Within hours of leaving the EU the most googled phrase in the UK is “what is the EU?” – That should tell you all you need to know about this false narrative. Brexit and Trump are both White “chimpouts” – losers attacking anything they can, because they no longer have the power to attack minorities.

      Losing is bad, but it becomes infuriating when the game is rigged in your favor and YOU STILL LOSE.

      I have no sympathy for the “white working class” from UK/Western Europe/US. They have had every opportunity in life but all they have done is attack minorities at every stage. They mock people who work hard and acquire real skills even fellow whites like Eastern Europeans in the UK. This call to Trump/Alt-right amounts to desperate cries to be heard to save them from their pathetic alcohol sodden lives. The Alt-Reich clowns can brag about their “IQ” but they dominate the internet solely because they are unemployed, poor and single, this will continue because their sense of superiority is so unshakable due to the constantly circle-jerking in their communities. I hope that Trump wins because he is to whites what Obama is to blacks, a goofy clown channeling the energy of losers for his own ends.

        These people probably have experienced an increase in income and quality of life, but not to the level formerly held by “the whites” harmed by globalization. For that reason I think it is not on the mark to call them “formerly poor” or to think their lack of complaining indicates globalization is nothing to complain about.

        Working-class Asian immigrants in the UK are used to living a miserly experience back in their home country. Their standard of living in the UK is better than it was back home. So they can’t identify with the experiences of the white working-class who were used to living a comfortable life earning a good wage (or in the case of youth, seeing their parents earn a good wage). And now that is all gone. White working-class resentment in the US and UK is about wanting a “return” to the “good old days” where if you wanted a job and were willing to work hard, you would get one. And be paid a livable wage at that.

        My dad is a European immigrant and he thinks that my millennial generation are a bunch of whiners. Because he lived in dire rural poverty under a fascist dictatorship until he immigrated to Canada as an adult. He ended up securing a comfortable life for him and his family during the 1970s and beyond as a union worker. And in his delusion, he still thinks that we still live in that world and that it should be easy for his autistic son (me) to secure gainful employment with no “connections” and an inability to build rapport/schmooze with stupid HR cunts. All because I’m “educated”. But the value of a Bachelor’s Degree is a lot less than it used to be. He points to my older sister as “making it”. Why can’t I be more like her. But she is from Generation X. A generation where it was easier to establish yourself in the workplace than for Generation Y. And she’s a schmoozing fake ass cunt who is able to build rapport with these HR cunts. HR cunts don’t want to hire autistic adults. Even if we are very bright. They want to hire other insufferable cunts like them and they want to hire Chad and fuck the Chad boy toys they hire. HR cunts are insufferable sluts. You see them everywhere on Tinder.

        We live in a society where automation and outsourcing is reducing our need for labour. So what do we do when our need for labour is reduced? Do we shorten the work week so that every able-bodied person can chip in and lighten the load for people who are already working 40+ hour work weeks? No. We lay people off. And then we create a society where 35-40% of working-age adults don’t work and have to be financially supported by the 60-65% who do. And for those of the 35-40% who are rejected by a social assistance program of don’t receive financial support from parents/family/friends/whatever, they join the increasing numbers of homeless people in our society. And this creates resentment. And you are left with a situation where one segment of the population has these good paying jobs. Another segment of society is stuck with these shit paying cuck jobs. And another segment of society who slips through the cracks and is unemployable (ie. autists like myself. When even socially adept normies struggle to get work in 2016, what chance do autists have schmoozing with HR cunts in their way into a job? Fuck this bullshit)

        We need someone to get in power in government that will force corporations to shorten the work week (let’s say 30 hours/week instead of 40+) and provide livable wage employment for everyone able who wants a job (let’s say $15/hr minimum wage). People who are truly disabled and can not contribute to society can go on disability and be paid a livable basic income. People who want to work, are actively looking for work and can’t get a job should be paid a livable basic income in the form of a welfare stipend.

        This is a ticking time bomb waiting to go off. Those of us who are the “losers” and have nothing left to lose don’t have any reason to give a shit about the “winners”. There is nothing stopping us from going ER. All these LIEbertarains and CONservatives talk about survival of the fittest. Just wait until autistic kids start killing the rich, the normies who shun them and the Chads. Then we will see what real survival of the fittest looks like. There’s nothing more dangerous than a man who has nothing to lose.

        Your cuntish sister will soon be on the unemployment queue, women don’t ever think their looks have an expiry or that their male benefactor whose dick they suck will ever face bad luck in their company.

        Most people nowadays do not stay at a company for more than 3 years … and if they either don’t get promoted to a higher position or on a larger salary, that is an indicator to other HR wonks that the person is “stagnating”.

        Also, an inability to understand that the world has changed is a uniquely “macho Alpha male” trait … the kind of person that doesn’t admit they’re wrong or take the blame.

    Its the start of the revolt against globalization (which in plainer is really the concentration of more and more of the world’s wealth and power into an integrated global elite). Fortunately for now it can take place at the ballot box.

    I was going to write about how the yoof didn’t vote in the referendum, the fact that more people voted in the referendum than for last year’s MEPs, that it’s always a mistake to compare the UK with USA ( Brits don’t understand that and I doubt Americans have a real clue about brits). Instead, I point you to this which sums it up better than could… http://www.spiked-online.com/newsite/article/the-post-brexit-ugliness-of-the-left/18538#.V4DrpMvTXqA
