FAST FIVE: EU Establishment Set For Popular Rebuke In Elections
Macron's elitist views are symptomatic of the establishment malaise which is actually at the core of the problem in the EU's crumbling cohesion and authority.
The EU status quo has led to massive problems of immigration from pandering to America's illegal warmongering in the Middle East and North Africa.
The fact of that does not mean that Russia is somehow influencing opposition movements.
Emmanuel Macron and other EU establishment figures may push the fantasy that the bloc is under threat from “far-right nationalist parties in cahoots with the Kremlin”.
That's why they are rebelling against the status quo by voting for a range of anti-establishment parties.
