Nigel Farage compares Brexit to America breaking free in 1776.

LONDON, England (PNN) - February 28, 2020 - Speaking at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC), Nigel Farage said that the Union Jack is now a “symbol of liberty and of breaking free of this globalist project.”

Farage started his CPAC speech by declaring Theresa May, the previous Prime Minister, who arguably almost lost Brexit, as the worst PM in the history of the country. It’s why the Brexit Party was able to create a “complete and total earthquake” in the 2019 European Parliamentary elections, becoming the largest delegation in the EU and causing May to resign as PM the next day.

The “Godfather of Brexit” said that is was “great news” that Boris Johnson, May’s successor, has “picked up every word and every phrase that I have stood and fought for for nearly 30 years,” and means that “at long last, we have finally left the European Union.”

“Those with a long memory will remember 1776,” Farage said, comparing the American Revolution to Brexit. “They’ll remember feeling they were a put-upon colony, taxed without representation, told what they could and could not do, and they had enough,” just as the Brits did in 2016.

“This is a nation that quite rightly is proud of its flag and identity - it’s a wonderful thing to see whenever I come to America,” Farage told the CPAC crowds. “What globalism is all about is destroying the nation state, taking away symbols and identity, and replacing them with a new global order. The EU is the epicenter of globalism,” he continued.

Farage said that he is not ashamed of his national flag:

“In fact, we decided the last thing [to do in the EU]… would be to wave our flags goodbye. However, the woman in the chair who sums up humorless, leftist, globalist unpleasantness, cut off our microphones … and very unpleasantly said, ‘you’re leaving anyway, take your flags and go,’ and that’s what the (Fascist United Kingdom) did at 11:00 PM on January 31, 2020; we took our flag and we (left). Now that flag is not just a symbol of the (F)UK, but a symbol of liberty, of breaking free of this globalist project. I don’t just want the (F)UK to leave the EU; I want Europe to leave the EU,” said Farage.

After his speech, Farage said that there is “a lot to celebrate and a lot to look forward to” in the future. Speaking as CPAC’s “regular foreign speaker,” Farage said it was “fantastic” that CPAC “has gone from being an all-Amerikan conservative event to now being a part of a global movement.”
