"European Party of Trump Election"

Updated: Jun 14

Election results signal huge warning for US Communist-Democrats come November

Populist parties across Europe have won a thumping victory in the European Parliament elections delivering a knock-out punch to the continent's Leftist and Green parties.

Political pundits are predicting that the shock victories for previously marginal right-wing parties is a sign of a sure win for former US President Donald Trump in the November presidential elections, even though center-right parties gained the most votes in Europe.

"Is political lightning about to strike twice?" the leftwing media CNN asked, elaborating:

"The latest campaign in Europe successfully road-tested a message that mixes a potent political cocktail — public anger over what is perceived to be out-of-control migration, the pain of voters facing high prices and the cost to individuals of fighting climate change. Trump is hitting these themes hard in battleground states that will decide the White House race."

Citizens of 27 member states of the European Union voted in the parliamentary elections held from June 6-9, sending a stern rebuke to pro-globalist mainstream parties and reinforcing the center-right coalition of parties in the European Parliament.

The biggest shockwaves hit French president Emmanuel Macron, who dissolved France's National Assembly and called for a snap poll in the national elections after his populist rival Marine Le Pen’s National Rally party scored twice the number of votes.

The National Rally secured 31.5% of the vote compared with 14.5% for the French president’s centrist alliance; with the center-left taking 14% of the vote. A pre-election survey said that 36% of 18-24 year olds backed the National Rally.

In Germany, the ultranationalist Alternative for Germany (AfD), a party that has been opposed by the Catholic Bishops' Conference of Germany, soared to second place in the polls; although gaining second place to the conservatives and trouncing Chancellor Olaf Scholz's Social Democrats (SPD).

The SPD won just 13.9% of the vote, its worst result in a nationwide democratic election in more than 130 years, after the AfD, which came second at 15.9%. The conservative opposition Christian Democrats (CDU/CSU) topped the polls with 30% of the vote.

The Greens won only 11.9% of the vote — down from 20.5% in the 2019 European Parliament election. German voters turned out in record numbers to the elections, with 64.8% of eligible voters participating.

In Italy, the Fratelli d’Italia (Brothers of Italy), led by the country’s prime minister Giorgia Meloni, a party at odds with Pope Francis and the Italian Episcopal Conference for its opposition to illegal immigration and climate alarmism, came out on top.

The Brothers of Italy won 28.8% of the vote; more than four times what it took in the last European Union election in 2019, and exceeding the 26% it secured in the 2022 national ballot, when it rose to power.

The opposition center-left Democratic Party came in second with 24% of the vote, while the 5-Star Movement, which is currently in the opposition, was third with 9.9% – its worst showing at a nationwide level since its creation in 2009.

Anti-Islam campaigner Geert Wilders' PVV party, who was the biggest winner in the elections, won six seats, up from one in the last European Parliament. “Still the very biggest winner with five more seats!” Wilders posted on social media platform X.

Austria's populist Freedom Party took 25.7% of the vote, finishing in first place in a nationwide election for the first time; followed by Chancellor Karl Nehammer’s conservative Austrian People’s Party with 24.7%, and the center-left opposition Social Democrats with 23.2%. The Greens took just 10.7% of the vote.

Parties like the Greens, with open borders immigration policies and climate change measures that had threatened the livelihood of farmers, suffered the biggest losses as voters rose to reject the globalist-Marxist agenda that is being pushed by the World Economic Forum.

On the whole the Greens lost a quarter of their seats in the polls as rural votes revolted en masse against the oppressive anti-farming policies.

Although mainstream media in Europe and the US played down the populist victory, political commentator and author Timothy Garton Ash warned that the elections E-day "produced hard-right successes in core member states that range from the significant to the shocking."

Ash explained what he saw as a catastrophe for the progressives:

"None of these Eurosceptic parties will be so stupid as to advocate following Britain’s Brexit by trying Frexit, Dexit, or Nexit. Instead, they will continue to pull the EU to the right from inside, with an even harder line on immigration, determined opposition to the green measures urgently needed to address the climate crisis, reduced support for Ukraine, and – nationalist as they all are – clawing back national control from Brussels. So don’t let anyone tell you it’s “not so bad”. It’s bad, and could get worse."

Ash noted that the results "will greatly complicate getting united, decisive action from the EU on issues such as the green transition" and "military support for Ukraine" at a time when that country is "in serious danger of eventually losing the largest war in Europe since 1945."

Only in the three Nordic EU member-states of Sweden, Denmark and Finland, did the Greens and left-leaning parties outperform their populist rivals.

In Sweden, the far-right Sweden Democrats, who became the second-largest party in 2022 national elections, came in fourth place. In Denmark, the climate-alarmist Socialist People’s Party made the largest gains.

In Finland, the governing conservative National Coalition Party bagged the most votes, with 25% of the share. However, the Left Alliance made gains and the populist Finns Party lost its share compared to the last EU election, with just 6% of the vote.

Hungary’s ruling Fidesz party with populist prime minister Viktor Orbán also suffered its worst ever result in a European Parliament election, with the new Tisza party scoring nearly 30% of the vote. Orbán’s Fidesz and its allies scored 44.6%, much lower than exit polls had predicted.

"A victory for Donald Trump in November’s US presidential election would weaken and probably further divide Europe, as hard-right populist nationalists, quite possibly including Meloni, would line up as the European party of Trump," Ash predicted.
