Trump, American nationalism & the hypocrisy of Western democracy

On the 20th January 2017, Africans, Latin Americans and non-Europeans all over the world witnessed a massive hypocrisy, a leader elected on a nationalist mandate to secure jobs for his own people, a right that has been denied non-European leaders for centuries under European colonialism.

Whilst the mainstream media continued their barrage of attacks against President Donald Trump, who they accuse of misogyny, racism and discrimination against women, the disabled and Muslims etc., few commentators on the left of politics, as well as commentators from non-European descent have drawn parallels between the rise of nationalism in Western democracies, and the fact that this has been denied to non-Europeans for centuries, and continues to be a main foreign policy direction of the main Western economies such as America and its allies.

In his book, “Web of deceit: Britain’s Real Role in the World”, Mark Curtis provides examples of nationalist leaders in the Middle East, Africa and Asia who were targeted by the British  Secret Service for assassination because they wanted to make their country great again like the current U.S President Donald Trump. These leaders wanted to create jobs for their own people like the current U.S President Donald Trump.

In the eyes of African, Latin American and Asian nations, America, Britain, Germany France and to a lesser extent other European powers are the terrorists.(Read Dizzee Rascal would be bonkers to play Bond)

When President Donald Trump speaks of keeping immigrants out of America, for decades African, Latin American and Asian nations have been trying to keep Europeans out of their countries so that they can create jobs for their own people and build a nation-state that their citizens can be proud of. This has been denied to them by Western countries by force and war. (Read The greatest spin story ever told: Obama’s Iraq withdrawal speech)

According to an article by James A. Lucas, (US Has Killed More Than 20 Million People in 37 “Victim Nations” Since World War II), America has been responsible for the deaths of more than 20 million people since World War II. These deaths did not occur because America was defending democracy, but rather because America was defending their economic interests. Lucas provides a country by country analysis of America’s military terrorism abroad and for Trump to speak candidly about China taking American jobs and undercutting the American economy stinks of double standards. Taking other people’s jobs and undercutting national economies has been the mandate of U.S. foreign policy since the birth of this immigrant nation.

Britain, is also a hypocritical democracy that has supported dictators in African and Middle Eastern countries to pursue their economic self interests, yet deny popular movements and leaders of these countries this right.

With Europe’s population turning to nationalist parties and movements to preserve their jobs, identity and future, will the population of Africa, Asia and Latin America be allowed the same privilege? I doubt it very much if the intelligence organisations have anything to do with it.

White Europeans are screaming for nationalism, and it is time that Africans, Asians, Latin Americans and all non-Europeans demand the same for their countries.

Read John Kerry says Africa has “Natural Resources”, Therefore the US is a “Natural Partner, and Britain’s Scramble for Africa: The New Colonialism, Review of Mark Curtis’ Book, and it demonstrates how hypocritical the West are to speak of democracy and nationalism when they have denied it to many nations and continue to do so.

In my article How immigration in the UK is linked to corrupt British foreign policy overseas, I make a clear connection between corrupt British foreign policy and immigration.

Do white Americans and white Brexit voters really want immigrants to go home and their culture preserved? Then I suggest that they confront their corrupt government’s and intelligence agencies who continue to wreak havoc in these countries for Western economic empowerment.

Will President Trump withdraw American troops from African countries where the U.S is plundering the resources? Will he have a policy of non-interference in the internal affairs of these countries? I doubt that Trump or indeed any other European leader would want to end European economic colonialism.

Western democracy is a sham and it would take the nations of Africa, Asia, and Latin America etc, to pursue their own nationalist policies, to realise just how much of a sham, Trump and Western democracy is.
