Trump and the European Populist Right - WSJ

But it turns out that it isn’t the American electorate our cultured European friends most have to fear. It’s their own people. It isn’t the loud-mouthed New Yorker with his deplorable views on fossil fuels, immigration and national security, but the rising tide of populist leaders in their own countries that pose the largest threat to Europe’s comfortable establishment.

The past weekend’s elections for the European Parliament provided the clearest evidence yet that large numbers of voters have had enough of the bipartisan progressive-green-secularist-globalist consensus under which they have been governed for years. France, Germany, Spain, Italy and smaller countries saw huge advances by parties of the right that oppose mass immigration, reject extreme climate measures and resist the continuing dissolution of their civilization into a relativist, multicultural mush.
