Now that Austria has moved “to the right,” the Czech populist movement is also expected to triumph.
The Czech populist resistance to globalism and mass immigration is expected to win big this weekend. Mass immigration has changed voter behavior.
If U.S. globalists don’t like this shift, then they ought to remember how, under the Obama Administration, American taxpayers financed Muslim propaganda in the Czech Republic.
I have no idea what the motives were behind this U.S. program, but there was no way Czech citizens were going to tolerate that interference. This will be a counterpunch.
AFP reports, “Populists set to thrash traditional parties in Czech vote.”
The Czech populist movement, ANO, led by a billionaire dubbed as the “Czech Trump”, is the clear favourite in a general election on Friday and Saturday where the traditional parties are set to take a thrashing.
The Czech Republic, which joined the EU in 2004 and has a population of 10.6 million, goes to the polls on October 20 and 21.
And Andrej Babis’ ANO movement looks positioned to emerge the clear winner.
In a recent poll by the Czech Academy of Sciences, the ANO scored 30.9 percent, more than the two traditional heavyweights in Czech politics — the Social Democrat CSSD and the right-wing ODS — combined, who scored just 13.1 percent and 9.1 percent respectively.
The ANO already held key posts in the current centre-left administration under Social Democrat Bohuslav Sobotka, including that of finance minister, occupied by Babis himself between January 2014 and May this year.
