Angela Merkel Urges Europe to ‘Stand up’ to ‘Excessive Nationalism’
Globalist Merkel called on the international community to stand up to populism
German Chancellor Angela Merkel used her acceptance speech after being awarded the Fulbright Prize for International Understanding in Berlin to decry “excessive populism and nationalism.”
Globalist Merkel called on the international community “to resolutely stand up against this type of thinking.”
The German Chancellor was awarded for her “remarkable, compassionate leadership and her strong commitment to mutual understanding, international cooperation, and peace.”
Previous award winners include US presidents Jimmy Carter and Bill Clinton, Bill and Melinda Gates and the organization Doctors Without Borders (active in the Mediterranea for n transporting boat migrants s from North Africa to Europe.)
Merkel then celebrated supranational bodies as the arbiters of order and peace in a post-WWII world:
"We need to remind ourselves why the United Nations was established in the first place, why NATO, why the World Trade Organization and other international institutions," she said.
"It was because of the lessons that were drawn out of the horrors of the Second World War and excessive nationalism,” according to the Associated Press.
She went on to criticize President Donald Trump’s patriotic-nationalist domestic policies:
“all the differences that one has,” nations “need to talk with one another, we need meetings, encounters, lines of communications” to solve global problems.
As Merkel attempted to redefine patriotism, she added, “And this is why I will never tire of making a case for the strength of a multilateral, rules-based and values-based global order.”
The German leader recently proposed that countries should be prepared to give up control over their borders to the European Union in another attack against Brexit.
The German Chancellor has threatened to derail Britain's exit from the EU, suggesting that countries should be ready to make concessions in an “orderly procedure.”
German citizens are leaving the country in droves due to Merkel's disastrous open-border regime.
Last week, Merkel and French President Emmanuel Macron signed a new pact between France and Germany, promising to pave the way for the two countries to form a "European army."
The two leaders inked the Franco-German agreement in the ancient western city of Aachen, Germany, vowing to build a "common military culture" between the two nations.
