Nigel Farage thinks he can get away with anything as he jokes about Trump’s alleged sexual assaults

A Vox Political reader recently complained because this picture is such an extreme close-up. The point is that the microphone makes him look like Hitler, of course.

A Vox Political reader recently complained because this picture is such an extreme close-up. The point is that the microphone makes him look like Hitler, of course.

Farage is a man who thinks there is no line he cannot cross.

His odious brand of politics is on the rise across the western world, he seems to think, based on the success of his Brexit campaign and his support for US President-elect Donald Trump.

And what kind of politics would that be? According to the Guardian, “Farage appeared to welcome the prospect of more surprise electoral successes across Europe, where some pundits have raised the idea of a National Front victory in France’s presidential vote in 2017.

“’Brexit, and now Trump, and now the wagons roll on to the rest of Europe for all the elections next year,’ Farage said. ‘This is a really exciting time. As someone who has now become a demolitions expert I’m thoroughly enjoying what’s going on.’

So he refers to the first black president of the United States as a “creature”; thinks sexual assault is a suitable subject for humour; welcomes the idea of a victory for a far-right, racist party like the National Front; his “wagons roll” rhetoric is eerily reminiscent of Hitler’s blitzkrieg; and he speaks of himself as an expert in “demolitions”.

This is an evil man who wants to see democracy burn. Let’s stop him.

Nigel Farage has claimed to be “the catalyst” for the rise of Donald Trump, referred to Barack Obama as a “creature”, and joked about Trump’s alleged sexual assaults on women.

In a jubilant interview with TalkRadio from Spain, before he was due to fly to the US, Farage joked several times about the idea of the US president-elect sexually assaulting Theresa May when he met her.

Farage, the interim Ukip leader, was increasingly open in his backing for Trump after he spoke at at a rally for the Republican candidate in Mississippi. Trump himself referred to the shock vote for Brexit in the UK as an inspiration for his campaign.

During the occasionally raucous late-evening phone interview with presenter James Whale on Wednesday, Farage was asked if he had “a lot to answer for” over Trump’s victory.

“I’m the catalyst for the downfall of the Blairites, the Clintonites, the Bushites, and all these dreadful people who work hand in glove with Goldman Sachs and everybody else, have made themselves rich, and ruined our countries,” Farage replied. “I couldn’t be happier.”

Farage continued: “That Obama creature – loathsome individual – he couldn’t stand our country. He said we’d be at the back of the queue, didn’t he?”

Farage then joked about Trump meeting May, saying, “don’t touch her for goodness sake”, before laughing. Asked about the likely behaviour of Trump, who has been accused of a series of sexual assaults, which he denies, Farage added: “If it comes to it, I could be there as the responsible adult role, to make sure everything’s OK.”

    Nigel Farage will remain an MEP for next two years

    Therefore, it’s understandable that Farage wants his “life back”. It’s a very easy life.

    As an MEP, he receives €7957 a month. He is paid in Euros, which given the collapse of the pound (which he has helped to orchestrate with the Brexit vote), means he is one of the few people to have seen a salary rise post-Brexit. Presently Farage’s salary is worth £6665.19 a month compared to the £6246 earned by MPs.

    Given Farage has been absent, or refused to vote, on the majority of debates at the European Parliament, it seems the decent thing would be for him to resign his position. Instead, he is proving to be the very essence of everything he claims to hate about Europe – a lazy, worthless bureaucrat, sponging money out of the institution he claims to despise.

    Is’t it wonderful that that Farage has changed the way in which democracy was being subsumed by the mass media and the political elite, the demos are taking back the right to make a decision based on anything other then the propaganda and “political correctness” fascism of the establishment.

      No, it isn’t wonderful that he has managed to substitute mob mentality for the rule of law.

    Having now unsuccessfully tried to comment twice on other articles I realise that I have been ‘moderated’ out of existence. I can only conclude that this is because I had the temerity to correct you on your less-than-well-informed Syrian coverage, as this was the only time I had commented before! Certainly I have never been personally abusive or discourteous. This is about as petty as gets and I am surprised that you do not see the irony of your actions, given that you purport to be against bigotry. I can only hope that you come to realise that a true progressive does not edit out dissenting voices. Good luck.

      This was the only unmoderated comment I had from you this morning.
      Are you sure you haven’t been using the contact form instead, even though I specifically pointed out that it wasn’t for comments on any particular article but for suggestions of other stories to cover? If so, that would be your mistake, not any malice on my part.
      As I have stated many times, complaining about a comment’s non-appearance is an almost sure-fire way to make sure it won’t appear on the site.
      I am only allowing this one because your claims are unacceptable and I wanted to counter them, here, before you could go hawking them anywhere else.
      I think you owe me an apology.
