Donald Trump, “Mr Brexit”: Today is ‘gonna be Brexit plus, plus, plus’.

Mr Brexit.

Speaking in North Carolina, Republican candidate Mr Trump – who called himself ‘Mr Brexit’ during the campaign – promised that today was ‘gonna be Brexit plus, plus, plus’. reports the Daily Mail.

The view of this Blog is that Trump is a disgusting pile of cack.

Beyond this we have not commented on his Presidential Bid.

But in evoking Brexit he has strayed into our Manor.

We wonder what those who relished Brexit, such as Susan Watkins, Editor of New Left Review, who said, “Critics of the neoliberal order have no reason to regret these knocks to it, against which the entire global establishment—Obama to Abe, Merkel to Modi, Juncker to Xi—has inveighed”, Tariq Ali, who was “Pleased’ Brexit Has Given EU  “Big Kick’ up ‘Backside‘”, those who believed it was a sign of the actuality of the revolution (Counterfire), a time to mobilise for a “People’s Brexit” (People’s Assembly), or a working-class ‘revolt’ against ‘elites’ (SWP and Socialist Party) think of Trump’s claims.

Actually we don’t give a toss.

For us the Republican Candidate is the Brexit Carnival of Reaction incarnate.

 Tendance Coatesy will not go into details about the problems about his contender.

For the moment we sincerely wish Hillary Clinton success – come what may.

Tariq Ali meanwhile has other ideas, ” Tariq Ali: Is Trump Any Worse Than Clinton? I’d Vote For Jill Stein.

If Ali’s stentorian voice is not enough to convince people that Hillary is the only option we would wish for, Galloway broadcast this yesterday:

  1. With pro-Brexit hysteria rife in the Tory press, the independence of the judiciary and even parliamentary democracy under attack, Farage predicting (ie threatrening) street violence if a hard Brexit does not go ahead unchallenged, the Communist Party of Britain has this to say:

  2. Since Trump’s campaign has been marked by a yuge increase in antisemitism of course the ‘Israel lobby’ has issues, George.

  4. Has the CPB reverted to the Third Period?

    In the print edition of the Morning Star this editorial is headed “A plague on both houses”:

    Meanwhile the Communist P:arty of the USA is calling for a vote for Clinton.

  6. The CPUSA are labor-liberals who uncritically support the remaining official Communist regimes (Cuba, China, Vietnam). They’re also in terminal decline. There’s absolutely no point in paying attention to anything they say. (They’re also absurdly uncritical of the quasi-neoconservative Hillary Clinton.)

  7. Good Lucifer, you are not exaggerating Jim,

    “we cannot defeat the far right by pretending that the causes of that desperation do not exist, which is effectively what those who take up arms for the status quo — whether that takes the shape of Clinton across the pond or the European Union over here — are doing.

    The task of socialists is to fight for a real solution to heal the wounds of our broken world: to fight for a planet in which people, not profits, are sovereign; to campaign tirelessly for peace.

    That means rejecting Clinton as well as Trump, Jean-Claude Juncker as well as Theresa May.

    The choices the ruling class offers us are false ones. Working people the world over deserve better.”

    What an utter spew of drivel.

    To “campaign tirelessly for peace.” must make them feel very warm and pleased with themselves.

    And I hate anybody who talks about “across the pond”.

  8. Another sign of Jill Stein’s regressive pseudo-leftism is her support of Brexit.

  9. So Trump IS Mr Brexit: Sarah Palin says Britain led the way with shock EU vote as she celebrates ‘the people taking back control’

    Sarah Palin and others say spirit of Brexit spread across the Atlantic

    Donald Trump has defied the polls – just like Brexiteers did in June

    She said: ‘We’re going rogue and the people are going to take back control’

    Nigel Farage is flying out to America and said: ‘This is bigger than Brexit’
