Brexit Leader Nigel Farage:
“And yet they go out and protest”
[International Business Times]

The United States certainly seems to hold no patent on dangerous, loud-mouthed morons in the political arena. Brexit leader Nigel Farage, the obnoxious Brit who led that nation to leave the EU, this week said that Americans protesting the racism, misogyny and alleged sexual assaults of President-elect Donald Trump “were all too busy smoking drugs to go out and vote.”

Farage, who openly campaigned for Trump (birds of a feather, don’t you know), made the ill-considered remark when asked by his Fox News host about the anti-Trump protesters, reports The Influence.

“They’re yelling and screaming, it’s almost as though, Chicken Little: The sky is falling!” the British politician said. Farage then laughingly claimed to have seen some of the same faces from anti-Brexit protests earlier this year.

“Look, let’s be frank,” the proudly ignorant Farage said. “These people were all too busy smoking drugs to go out and vote. And yet they go and protest.”

Farage’s bravado may have been due to the fact that he was fresh off a visit to Trump Tower over the weekend. His enthusiasm for the Donald made him one of the first foreign politicians to meet with the new President-elect — despite the fact that he holds no position in the UK government, causing consternation and alarm in London. (It seems the only real qualification Trump requires of visiting dignitaries is that they be fan-boys or willing to kiss his ass.)

Speaking of smoking drugs, four more states — California, Maine, Massaschusetts, and Nevada — legalized recreational cannabis use in the 2016 election in the U.S., along with three more states (Arkansas, Florida and North Dakota) legalizing medical marijuana. So Farage’s unseemly contempt of cannabis users and their supposed inability to perform citizenly functions such as voting is bizarrely misplaced — revealing far more about a boorish politician than about his supposed targets, which include more than half of American voters.

But then again, he probably doesn’t care much about that… Nigel says that 47.3 percent is a total majority, meaning Trump can now rule as he likes as if he won an actual mandate. Farage is also of the opinion that a 48.1 percent share of the vote is a case of “Shut up, you lost. Go home.”
