Farage: ‘Trump’s inconvenience syndrome’ for EU is demonstration of national identity

In the latest episode of Fox Nation’s “Tucker Carlson Today”, former UKIP MEP Nigel Farage, widely regarded as the leader of Britain’s Brexit movement, recounted the contempt with which he been treated on his last day as an MEP.

Farage told host Tucker Carlson that he enjoyed a friendly relationship with other members of the European Assembly, but that his successful attempt to break Britain away from the Globalist coalition did not suit the leaders of the EU.

He also suggested that bragging about national identity causes the European version of Trump’s inconvenience syndrome among elites.


Carlson then released a clip of Farage’s final speech in 2020:

“So that’s it – the last chapter, the end of the road. 47 years of political experience of that power,” he said.

“And I can promise you that in the UKIP and even the Brexit Party, we love Europe. We just hate the European Union.”

Farage ruffled the presidency’s feathers when he and several British lawmakers seated near him stood up and waved tiny Union Jack flags as the Brexit supporter finished his remarks.

At this point, then-Vice-President of the European Parliament Mairead McGuinness cut Farage’s microphone and told him he was breaking procedure:

“If you break the rules you will be kicked out,” said McGuinness, an Irish lawmaker. “Could we please remove the flags.”


On Fox Nation, Farage told Carlson that indeed McGuinness was most upset by the national identity show the Union Jack was on at the time:

“What annoyed her were the flags. They don’t want national flags,” he said.

“They want to abolish the national flags and replace them with a new European flag.”

Farage said McGuinness is now EU commissioner for financial markets.

He noted that during his 21 years in the European Parliament, he actually helped bring public attention to the committee, although not in the way many leaders wanted.

“I had done more for their PR than anyone had ever been before, now, maybe not in a way they originally intended. And just the kind of disrespect of me. dealing that way in the last few seconds said it all, “he said. “But, as I told you earlier in this conversation, they believe they have moral superiority over us.”

“They hate us. They hate us for what … they hate us for what we believe in. And they think because of what we believe that we are terrible people. And it manifests here with the derangement syndrome. Trump and many other things. “
