The real influence of populism\nationalism in the EU

Recommended Posts

By the way, some people on this forum were very dedicated to proving me wrong on the issue of Islam and immigration. Now that its successfully tanked half of your governments, what have you to say now?

 

What exactly was it about immigration that some people were very dedicated to proving you wrong about? That it's going to "destroy our culture"? That in a generation there would be less ethnic French in France than second-gen Muslim immigrants? I ask because a lot of nonsense has been said regarding this "issue" and it wasn't so much proving anyone wrong as asking you and others to, um, substantiate your claims, so an actual discussion could be had.

 

I'd also like to know when you say "it" has tanked governments, what exactly is "it"? Immigration? If so, being generous I'd say you're jumping to conclusions, and disregarding other important factors, such as, the huge-ass long-term unemployment in Italy and constant strikes and protests that have been going on in France for a while now, and that have nothing to do with immigration, being instead directed against PM Valls' labor reform pet project. Mind, if you want to play the card that immigration is the chief factor for what has been happening, you are actually pushing the "2016 the year of racism" narrative. Can't have your cake and eat it too.

 

And well, the limp-**** right has been re-elected for another term over here after some embarrassing kowtowing by the limp-**** left, so I personally don't have much to say. Er... the more things change, the more they stay the same? ...I got nothing.

I'd say the populist and crypto-xenophobic groundswell has always been at least somewhat present in France. I think that sentiment is rather succinctly expressed by De Villepin's quote from '05: "[G]lobalization is not an ideal; it cannot be our destiny."

This is like being trolled by retarded children.

 

 

So - to borrow D&D terminology - a level-appropriate encounter, basically.

By all appearances it's a few CR too high.

Well seeing as the rest of the mob is here, how do we update our game? A play on their name, like Wrath of Dullard?

c'mon KP, we all know it requires a special brand of idiot to stoop so low as to consistently refer to people they don't like by childish nicknames

I'm just trying to make the encounter something he can handle.

Proper hand designed encounters to maximise challenge and interactivity, please. None of this Oblivion/ Diablo level scaled copy and paste crap.

 

Plays on names are awesome too. Far too much negativity around. Be a rainbow, not a kainebow.

 

Such sorrowful existence!


Very inefficient phraseology, you clearly have too much time on your (no doubt very small) hands. Why type so much when a mere three letters would suffice?

Poor WoD, always being cruelly and unfairly bullied by the world's smallest mob. Such sorrowful existence!

Ah, there we have it, exhibits A, B, and C above. I knew if I waited long enough the rest of you would show up to prove how sassy you are *snap snap snap*. Psst, bullying is against the forum rules.

Well flys are attracted to excrement, perhaps he sensed you were full of it.

This is like an 80's high school movie where the three cool cheerleaders are trying to bully the nerd with cringing put downs.
