Their usual ritual of smug celebrations followed immediately by dark portents of liberal plots was attenuated by their general America-centrism. They couldn't even be arsed to fill in their dim understanding with a comforting narrative!
Even Trump's support didn't seem to get them really ranting. Though the fact that globalism is explicitly involved does goose their ever increasing nationalist paranoia a bit:
Scott from the Left Coast hits the populist bromide that used to work gangbusters on the Jews:
Let the markets throw their hissy-fit. The global elites...banks, corporations, denizens like Soros were rejected by a people who wanted to be free. Nations are local control, and perhaps we are seeing a new birth of nationalism.
We are that little bit further away today from being peasants and slaves to our money masters. Let them go nuts and make themselves less wealthy. They have been rejected.SteveH makes with the bumper sticker:
Awesome. Make Britain Great Again!tcrlaf gets in some quality gloating:
a perfect sound bite for trump, if he wants!
Listened to BBC World on the way home from work tonight.And the always odious Diana in Wisconsin can always be counted on to be smug about how liberals are probably sad:
They are STUNNED and Flabbergasted, with comments like “This is a TERRIBLE, TERRIBLE, TERRIBLE day for Britain!”, etc.
This simply CANNOT BE HAPPENING. Their Facebook accounts and Twitter accounts all told them this was impossible.
They were even trying to say “Uneducated people voted to leave, those with degrees voted to STAY!”
Is John Feckin’ Kerry on Suicide Watch? LOL!Eurotwit is one of many who discusses how to use this to make money:
Buy pound sterling.Tolerance Sucks Rocks is sure tax cuts and deregulation will solve everything!
If you are willing to sit on it for a few years.
It does not appear to be good for Britain, the pound is crashing and they will likely go into recession.I need to look up Freepers' reaction to Kansas breaking over Brownback's conservative policies.
That won't last long if Great Britain continues to improve its fiscal policy (lowering taxes, etc.).
JennysCool may want to look at the age of who voted to leave:
Britain is showing the world should no longer be ruled by old hippies who think it’s still 1974.Breaking with Freep's past narrative that England is all Muslim FlyingEagle lays out how this was about everyone BUT England is Muslim:
Viva 21st century!
Language, religion, customs: the culture has been assaulted and imperiled for decades. With the muzzification of Europe, this is the last stand fof redoubt for Britain.bushwon makes the call for ethnic cleansing more stark:
We will hear much gnashing of banker and business teeth over the matter, but the truth is its a wonderful outcome for the people. There is great strength in sovereign rule over a country’s currency and customs.
I lived in London for 5 years, my two daughters were born there, and I have travelled there extensively for mainly work and pleasure for the last three decades. I am so happy for the British who are now escaping the EU tentacles. Switzerland never ceded over their sovereignty to the EU, and the main Swiss problem has been how to manage the relative strength of their currency and economy versus the EU. Britain will soon have the same issues.
Stupid Obama was all pro EU - oblivious to the economic, cultural and political destruction taking place in the UK. The British voted with their feet: a spectacular cry for freedom, no matter the short term price.
Congrats to Great Britain!Textide thinks we need to play England against the rest of those rivals in Europe:
Next, turn Londonistan back into London!!!
And for every door that the EU closes with Britain, it should be an opportunity for the US to strengthen our relationship. That is, so long as our next president doesn’t wear a pant suit.Husker8877 is a one issue voter: Fuck the Clintons!
I got just one thing to say: Knowing that Bill and Hillary were against Brexit was all I needed to be for it. They are the most accurate political litmus papers on earth as far as I’m concerned! Pretty much if they’re for it, I’m against it!publius911 hates Germany and wants some new Nazis to take them over...
Ok I’m going to say one more thing: F*** the g*dd*m Clintons all to hell!! I love that they got their asses handed to them once again! Woohoo!!
One of my greatest puzzlement (as a student of history) for decades now, is how a little nothing country, saved from the NAZI clutches, became so delusional as to see themselves as arbiter of the worth of so many countries better than themselves.I think the new Nazis he's talking about are Muslims...
Let the new NAZIs finally own them and teach them the humility they so richly deserve.
Belgium can return to being a necessary fence between giants, with bootprints on it in every direction...
Also, Belgium? How did that work?
