BadMouse On How The Left Abandoned Opposing The EU

Summary:
BadMouse On How The Left Abandoned Opposing The EUBadMouse, the vlogger on the EU and Brexit:The right has been a stickler when it comes to appropriating leftist talking points, as I have spoken numerous times now. The EU used to be lot more of a conservative tradition opposed by many factions of the left including, of course, the late Tony Benn. But after sections of the right-wing discourse took it by their shoulders, all the left could seem in response was to go, “No! EU good”.The EU is an undemocratic monolithic entity that controls large hegemony over the continent. This is something the left has always been against and now we seem to have all been been shovelled into the pro-EU corner just to own the right is baffling. How dare they! How dare we allow them to take control of this

The right has been a stickler when it comes to appropriating leftist talking points, as I have spoken numerous times now. The EU used to be lot more of a conservative tradition opposed by many factions of the left including, of course, the late Tony Benn. But after sections of the right-wing discourse took it by their shoulders, all the left could seem in response was to go, “No! EU good”.

The EU is an undemocratic monolithic entity that controls large hegemony over the continent. This is something the left has always been against and now we seem to have all been been shovelled into the pro-EU corner just to own the right is baffling. How dare they! How dare we allow them to take control of this narrative, on the topic of narratives.
