The Economist weekly news magazine put on the cover of its new issue a caricature, which depicts Russian President Vladimir Putin, US President-elect Donald Trump, leader of the French National Front Marine Le Pen and head of the UK Independence Party Nigel Farage.

Text on the cover reads: “New Nationalism.” The issue of the magazine also offers its readers a similarly-named article, which reads that nationalistic sentiments embrace more and more countries, which have a pessimistic look at international relations. According to the author of the article, the US, Russia, China and Turkey are among such states.

Another article of the new issue is devoted to Marine Le Pen, who heads the extreme right-wing party in France. The piece, titled “Europe’s biggest populist danger,” reads that the “march of close-the-borders populism” trampled liberal values. The author cites as examples the voting for Brexit, which took place in June, and the unexpected election of Trump as the head of the US, as surveys and media predicted that the candidate of the Democratic Party, Hillary Clinton, will be elected.

The Economist is famous for its controversial articles and occasionally harsh images on the covers. So, in October of this year, the magazine offered leave a corridor for terrorists of the Islamic State (IS) group in order to let them to escape from Mosul and “save themselves in Syria.” The cover was ‘decorated’ with an image of Putin with red fighter jets instead of apples of his eyes.

    The Economist is the spokesman for malignant corporatism and government by CEO. Exactly what the majority of citizens in the above mentioned nations abhor. In different ways, the leaders mentioned reflect the sentiments of their people unlike governing from the boardroom.

      It’s the voice of the establishment cronies, the shrills of plutocratic materialism.

    • or you can simply say (((Rothschild))) house organ

    The Economist isn’t fit to wrap up fish ‘n’ chips…. though I might use it to line the floor of a birdcage…

    • Bezukhov

      Don’t put the Economist in a bird cage. That’s animal cruelty.

  • MeMadMax

    It’s not just populism…

    It’s doing THE RIGHT THING you bastards…

    • John Whitehot

      Exactly. It’s disgusting how the zionist media machine is now all geared into putting people like LePen and Farage on the same level as Trump, and even Putin. In the end, the european neo-fascists will end up in the crapper as soon as they start administering any country (be it the UK or France or whatever, always if they can win an election). Some folks gotta understand that both Russia and the US will never be governed by fascists.

    “Another article of the new issue is devoted to Marine Le Pen, who heads the extreme right-wing party in France.”
    I have to ask: what exactly is extreme about Marine Le Pen? I will be looking very closely at her political program, as will the French, I am sure.
    Why exactly is nationalism considered extreme? I smell a rat from the pampered, power-hungry and warmongering elites.

    • Joseph Scott

      The Globalist elite have long felt (and at times openly stated) that nationalism was an impediment to their idea of world government, and therefore is ‘dangerous’ and ‘radical.’

    • Its extreme these days to not to succumb to the muslim invasion and put your own people first.The globalist seem to think that the different white nations in Europe and elsewhere are happy to destroy themselves for the greater glory of (((globalism))).They are wrong.First the globalist need to kill all whites.Nationalism and Tribalism are normal human behavior.It cant be supressed.

    The Anglo Zionist Transnational Bankers beating a dead dog !! Such desolation !! Let them suffer in peace !!

  • Funny how the (((Rothschild))) paper forgot Israel in the counting of close-the-borders nations.Yep Israel can close its borders , can build walls and have zero non jewish immigration but the goyim can´t have that.Why though Schlomo ? Why ? We all know why …by now…

    This is what happens when the left becames a slave of the globalist/technocratic system while foresakening the interest of the people it was supposed to protect above everything else.

    I may dissagree with many things about the Alt-Right but they are giving hope to the people, a chance to move away of the Orwellian system that took over nearly all the “free-nations” in the world and which would only became more and more firm and constraint the common people until they are turned into literal tools of the system.

    This is what the Telegraph reported:
    http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2016/11/18/donald-trumps-win-sends-french-politics-scrambling-for-who-can-b/

    “About | Front National
    What:French far-right political party
    Founded:1972
    Leader:Marine Le Pen, daughter of founder Jean-Marie Le Pen
    Major policies
    Withdrawing from the EU and the euro (this would put France in the same position as the UK after Brexit. I support this).
    Protecting the French economy from “unfair” competition and globalisation (I see nothing wrong in this).
    Giving priority to French citizens in jobs and housing (How else can France be a nation?).
    Ending mass immigration (Every nation has the right to protect its identity and control who comes in).
    Taking a tough stance on law and order issues (All OK, but I would be against the death penalty).
    Reasserting “French cultural identity” (Why should France be forced to change its identity?).
    Being a “strong and independent” France in defence and foreign affairs. (Great! No more poodlism to the US, just like DeGaul!).
    So, as a brown British Indian, I see nothing wrong in this FN program.
    Good luck, Marie LePen, Madame Le President de France!!!
