If you read the presstitute media, Brexit—the
referendum tomorrow on the UK’s exit from the EU— is about racism. According to the story line, angry rightwing racists of
violent inclinations want to leave the EU to avoid having to accept more
dark-skinned immigrants into England.
Despite the constant propaganda against exit, polls
indicated that more favored leaving the EU than remaining until a female member
of Parliament, Jo Cox, was killed by a man that a witness said shouted
“Brexit.” Cox was an opponent of leaving the EU.
The UK government and presstitute media used Cox’s
murder to drive home the propaganda that violent racists were behind Brexit.
However, other witnesses gave a different report. The Guardian, which led with
the propaganda line, did report later in its account that “Other witnesses said
the attack was launched after the MP became involved in an altercation
involving two men near where she held her weekly surgery.” Of course, we will
never know, because Cox’s murder is too valuable of a weapon against Brexit.
There is no doubt that many in the UK are disturbed
at the transformation of their country. One doesn’t have to be a racist to feel
that one’s country is being stolen from them by people of alien cultures. The
British have a long history of fighting off invaders, and many believe they are
experiencing an invasion, although not an armed one. An armed one, of course, would
not have the government’s and media’s support.
When British people hear pundits pronounce that
immigrants contribute more to the UK than they absorb in social payments, what
they hear is inconsistent with their experience. Moreover,
many British are tired of having to avoid entire sections of their cities,
including London, because of safety concerns.
It is a propaganda choice to call these concerns
racism rather than cultural defense, and the UK political establishment has
made that propaganda choice. Little wonder so many British citizens no longer
believe that the British Establishment represents Britain.
But let’s give the propagandists the benefit of the
doubt and for sake of argument assume that Brexit is about racism. What is the
opposition to Brexit really about? Most certainly it is not about helping the
refugees from Washington’s wars that the UK government has enabled. If the
British establishment cared so much for the Muslims seeking refuge from
America’s invasions, bombs, and drones, the British establishment would not
have supported Washington’s attacks on these people.
Opposition to Brexit is based on two powerful
interests of Washington.
One is the interests of the New York banks and Wall
Street to eliminate the UK as a financial center competitor. This blatant fact
has escaped the notice of the City and the Bank of England.
The British have forgotten that they only have one
foot in the EU, because the UK was permitted to keep its own currency. The UK
does not use the euro and, thus, retains the power to finance the British
government. Greece, Portugal, Spain, Italy, France, Germany, etc., do not have
this capability. They are dependent on private banks for financing.
In order to trick the UK into joining the EU, the
British were given special privileges. However, these privileges cannot last
forever. The EU process is one of political integration. As I reported years
ago, Jean-Claude Trichet, at that time the president of the European Central
Bank, said that to complete the political integration of Europe, the fiscal
policies of member states would be centralized. It is impossible to centralize
fiscal policies if the UK is an independent financial center with its own
central bank and currency.
Wall Street understands that the defeat of Brexit
means a shortened lifespan for London as a financial center, as it is
impossible to be a financial center unless a country has its own currency and
central bank. As it is impossible for the UK to be a member of the EU and not
operate under the European Central Bank, once the Brexit referendum is
defeated, the process of gradually forcing the UK into the euro will begin.
The other powerful interest is the interest of
Washington to prevent one country’s exit from leading to the exit of other countries.
As CIA documents found in the US
National Archives make clear, the EU was a CIA initiative, the purpose of which
is to make it easy for Washington to exercise political control over Europe. It
is much easier for Washington to control the EU than 28 separate countries.
Moreover, if the EU unravels, so likely would NATO, which is the necessary cover
for Washington’s aggression.
The EU serves Washington and the One Percent. It
serves no one else. The EU is a murderer of sovereignty and peoples. The intent
is for the British, French, Germans, Italians, Greeks, Spanish, and all the
rest to disappear as peoples. Brexit is the last chance to defeat this hidden
agenda, and apparently the British will vote tomorrow without having a clue as
to what is at stake and what the vote is about.
