When the markets continue to collapse this week and people start weighing the international security risk this puts the allied nations into, as a result of the Brexit vote, they'll overturn it. They've already raised more than enough signatures for a re-vote in a matter of hours after the Brexit votes passage.



This vote has helped to expose who the real low IQ right wing Nationalist Neo-Nazi racist homophobic religious fanatic fascists are, at least here in the USA.

From what I have read, the Scots or Irish can also veto the exit.

I find it very intriguing. Cameron did not do shit to prepare for a Brexit victory, so there is no plan for dealing with the Article 50 procedure. He's taking a hike and letting the next Prime Minister deal with it. It's like he is completely flabbergasted that such thing could happen, perhaps because he was assured it would not.

This vote is much more trustworthy since it is paper ballot. A lot of Brexiters, (again, from what I've read) brought their own black ink pens to mark their vote with, to eliminate the possibility of their vote being "rubbed out". I expect that Briton will see an influx of Diebold-style voting machines in the near future.

The elites, the banks, the corporations...they are all taking hits on this and it's big money lost. I revel in the thought of it myself, having seen and known serious poverty in the shadow of tremendous wealth. This vote is a stick in Rothchild's eye, and it had to happen now, because sooner or later the European Union would have heavily armed forces under their directive, which is the last knell of death for the rights of States.

This is a huge punch in the face of the globalist cabal. The elites are attempting to churn cultures together for their own benefit and profit, and the people are deciding that, no, we want borders. If the flood of immigrant refugees from the EU-blessed Syrian conflict had never arrived inside the Eurozone, this Brexit vote might have failed. My goodness, Britons want to be what Britons are...who would have guessed that?

So now, we have moanings from eight other EU members about leaving. The shit is crashing, and it's every country for itself!

Hey, don't think Texit or Calexit couldn't happen here. Those economies rate right up there with some of the largest economies in the world. If they wished to, they could make it on their own. But, they can't leave anyway, given the big Federal gun pointed at their hearts.

Really cool, though...Brexit. A victory for human beings and a clear defeat for the reptiles.

...so basically, you side with the Nationalist Neo-Nazi Brexit supporters. Figures...and not-at-all surprising. :roll:





A sharp spike in racist incidents reported after the Brexit vote

After Thursday's referendum on a "Brexit," a wave of racist incidents have been reported to British police and documented in widely shared social media posts. Through the weekend, #Postrefracism has been trending, and its contents provide a disheartening view of how Britain's vote to leave the European Union may be emboldening those who harbor virulent racist sentiments.

Police in west London were investigating what they called a "racially motivated" attack against the Polish Social and Cultural Association. Poles make up the largest foreign-born population in the United Kingdom. The organization's building was apparently defaced with graffiti that said, "Go home."

In Cambridgeshire, leaflets were apparently distributed with “Leave the EU/No more Polish vermin” written in both English and Polish.

Those campaigning for a Brexit offered clear assurances that a new immigration system would not affect E.U. citizens already living in Britain: “There will be no change for EU citizens already lawfully resident in the UK,” the campaign noted on its website. But despite the assurances, many immigrants to Britain are unsure of their future.

Racism isn't exactly an unexpected outcome of the victory for the Brexit camp at the polls, either. Nigel Farage, the leader of the U.K. Independence Party (UKIP) and the most hard-line proponent of a Brexit, has spoken of the "n----- vote" and told reporters that he would use a racist slang term to refer to Chinese restaurants. But he and other "Brexiteers" have said that their concerns are about increasing immigration flows perceived as coming at the expense of the British-born and have nothing to do with prejudice.

Britain's massively popular tabloids have done little to calm the public's nerves over immigration, often resorting to blatant scaremongering and race-baiting. Below is a compilation of dozens of tabloid fronts doing so.

What follows is a harrowing sampling of Twitter posts detailing specific incidents..........

Not to mention Dinah Moe Hum. But I prefer Camarillo Brillo. At least the early George Duke versions.
Blessed Relief is gorgeous. The poster where he is sitting on the toilet and Gail's father. Plus, Ralph Humphries. Still, Ian Underwood whipped it out, didn't he?

Saw a clip of the reaction from an Icelandic sports announcer and he was so excited that his voice went up many pitches. Losing a soccer tournament to Iceland is like pouring salt into Great Britain's wound for the turmoil they are facing.

I don't get any of these cartoons that indicate the UK leaving the European Union is somehow going to break it. That's just feeding the way overinflated self importance of the type of Brit that led to this bullshit in the first place. I do agree however that it's a bloody joke. It seems there are still many people who haven't gotten over the nineteenth century yet, let alone the twentieth.

The definitive cartoon would be Farage, Le Pen, Wilders and the other ultra-rights cheering in front of the stock market crash graphics, but it seems nobody'll make that.

They haven't invoked Article 50 yet. I wonder why?

I've moved this comment from the thread about the forum:

A rope leash wrote:
I wrote something yesterday that polydigm thought was the stupidest thing ever. It takes all kinds, and that's what you get when you let nature take it's course. Australians don't get me and they are rude about it. I find it hilarious. Other rude people, not so much.
This whole issue is ultimately about manipulating racism. My opinion has nothing to do with me being Australian any more than I thought your comment about Brexit was because you were American.

You bang on about being some kind of humanist. You can't have your cake and eat it too. A humanist has no nationality, you can't be a humanist and a nationalist at the same time. I'm all about humans becoming more united and less divided. Brexit is about dividing people and the fascist pieces of shit who think it's wonderful are all about stirring up racial hatred. "Leave Europe and get rid of foreigners, that will fix the UK economy". Bollocks. Sound bytes to stir up negative passion without any rationality.

You think Brexit is a victory for humans - that's just crazy talk. A victory for humans will be when the banks and captains of industry are made to serve the people who do the work instead of exploiting them.

Who do you think leaving Europe will really serve in the UK? Sure as hell not the majority of its working and unemployed citizens and exactly the bloody reptiles you mentioned.

It's not about getting you, you think this is about you. It wouldn't matter who said that, it's bullshit.

See? You're just itching for a fight. You have applied the "humanist" label to me, but I rather see myself as a misanthrope.

The very well-off took a kick in the shins with the Brexit vote, and they deserved it.

You said:

A victory for humans will be when the banks and captains of industry are made to serve the people who do the work instead of exploiting them.

Who is going to make them? They control the entire monetary system, and corrupt every government with their debt-schemes. There's no real money, only debt created out of printing money with nothing to back it up but military force. I don't know about Australia, but big money rules Washington D.C. It would be naive to think any of these "captains" would ever be held accountable by mere laws.

Check out the horrid attitude of this one-percenter:

http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2016-06-2 ... ant-masses

The article at the link is entitled "It's Time To Rise Up Against The Ignorant Masses".

He's calling for an end to elections. Because it hurts to get kicked in the shins.

I've been writing a long essay about my recent encounters with the wealthy class. Honestly, they could take a cut so everyone else can have a little more. This is my observation. How does it happen that they take a cut? Well, maybe the whole house of cards needs to come down so it's all nice and flat.

One the broader point of reptiles ruling, it was only a joke. I don't know that they are reptiles, but they do sometimes seem more snake-like than human. They want to rule the world, and I don't really go for that. They want to churn together the cultures and races until we are all marching to their market parade, and eventually to the point where the human race has no identifiable races or ethnicities. We will all be goopy-looking slaves to the profit center of their dreams, One Earth, all for the few. Fuck that, but let us face it, that's the future if there is no mass extinction event, which is Plan B.

Brexit is not the end of capitalism. Some folks took a financial hit, but they can handle it. The stock market is already bouncing back, and since the elite were not prepared for Brexit the Article 50 provisions may never be invoked.

It's been fun watching the powers that be get all in a snit over it, though.

Good show.

@Rope This is why I have difficulty having discussions with you. You're not stupid, you know what I'm getting at, the above is just a sidestep.
