For the first time, the German people have elected a member of the National Democratic Party of Germany (NPD) to the European Parliament. The son of a Nazi SA assault division member, Udo Voigt is a member of Germany's far-right anti-immigrant party and has faced legal action in the past for referring Hitler was "a great man” and questioning the number of Holocaust deaths. He has also demanded the return of German land lost after World War II. As Yahoo News reported, Voigt received one percent in the German vote for the EU-wide election Sunday. On radio this morning, Glenn reacted to Voigt’s election and referenced three specific conditions that he believes contributed to Voigt’s success.
“This is all of the stuff that we said would with happen,” Glenn said. “And it's happening because of three things.”
1. The economy
The economy sucks. The economy absolutely sucks. You know how bad food prices are getting. When the United States of America defaults – or it will never default we'll just print the money – when we print money faster than we are, or when this catches up to us, the food prices around the world are going to go through the roof. Our food prices already are going through the roof. We're buying things with American dollars. They can't. We're effecting the food of the rest of the world. So the rest of the world is going to turn on us and say, it's the bad Americans that caused all of this.
So one, the economy and jobs – it's a nightmare waiting to happen.
The immigration policies, the same kind of policies that we have here in America. This doesn't mean that you're xenophobic, and it doesn't mean you're a nationalist. It means: Can we have the people here who are doing no harm and contributing to our society? If you want to be an American, you want to be a German, you want to be a South African, you want to be a Palestinian, or whatever, then you've got to fold into the society. That's what you have to do. Otherwise, I don't want you here.
If you can make us better, great. But do you want to be an American? Because if you want to remain an Egyptian, stay in Egypt. They've got lots of room for you. Most of it desert. Lots of room for you. That doesn't make you Xenophobic. But what these nations have done overseas is they have adopted every culture is equal. I'm sorry, but… when one nation and one culture is preaching the Judeo Christian practice of love, and another culture is teaching hate and death, I'm sorry, they are different. And if you don't like it, then go back to Pakistan where you can be surrounded by death and people saying that.
3. The European Union
This is really frightening because it's nationalism. I don't have a problem with loving your country. I love mine. And we are different. And I like going places. I like going to Mexico or Canada and seeing the differences. You go anywhere in America… there's the Gap. There's Ann Taylor. Every town is exactly the same. Now, you go overseas – you can go to Beijing, and oh, there's the Ann Taylor. There's KFC. Literally, there's no difference anymore.
What happened to celebrate diversity? Now everything is the same. I like Italy being Italy, and Germany being Germany, and Spain being Spain. I like that. There's nothing wrong with that, except the business people don't like it as much. It makes it hard to do business. It makes it extremely difficult to gain power over a huge population.
The EU is the problem in Europe. It's the problem with multiculturalism, and it is the problem with the Euro. It doesn't work. And Germany is going to start to have the real problem. Germany is the one that's doing all of the work while the people in France can say, ‘I'm just going to sit on a beach.’ ‘I'm going to work a 21-hour work week while the Germans are working to keep the Euro propped up.’
“It's not going to last,” Glenn concluded. “And because they do not have the understanding of all men are created equal are endowed by their creator with certain unalienable rights – among these are rights are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness; because they don't have a Bill of Rights that looks at an individual, not the collective; the next Hitler or Stalin will come. And it looks like it's beginning to happen now.”
