We’re so overrun, and it’s almost like we have these parallel societies, on top of all of that we are being taught to hate our own way of life, to hate our culture. Why would anyone want to integrate into a society that hates itself?” asks Member of the European Parliament (MEP) Christine Anderson in a recent interview with The Epoch Times’s Jan Jekielek, host of American Thought Leaders.
Christine Anderson, also believes the hope for Western democracies lies in Eastern Europe and America, where the people have learned to fight for their freedom. “They have learned to defend it and they have an understanding that it needs defending on an everyday basis,” she says.
“The Western European spoiled brats—it’s kind of like freedom/democracy fell out of the blue sky on one fine day and boom, there it was.”
A member of the European Parliament since 2019, she also discussed several other troubling trends that have been seen in her country and throughout the EU. They include labeling anyone who dissents from progressive ideology as “far right.”
Mr. Jekielek asked whether the EU is seeing the same trend as the United States, where dissenting voices are maligned by legacy media. Several prominent names were brought up to illustrate the recent political mood, including newly elected Argentinian President Javier Milei and tech mogul Elon Musk.
