Stupidity cannot just be claimed by Trump voters or the British in support of ideas propagated by ERG extremists in the Brexit campaign ...
Yesterday the Dutch voters gave a majority in the senate to newcomer Thierry Baudet ... where did this shooting star originate from?

Forum for Democracy was established as a think tank; its main feat was campaigning for the 2016 Dutch Ukraine-European Union Association Agreement referendum. In September 2016, it converted itself into a political party and announced its intention to take part in the 2017 Dutch general election.

In the 2017 general election, the FvD ended up with 1.8% of the vote and 2 seats, entering parliament for the first time.
In January 2019 the FvD had approximately 30,000 members  .. The bulk of the Forum's parliamental candidates did not have prior active experience in other political parties. In February 2018 the party suffered from internal issues with a number of prominent members leaving the party, because they felt the party had a lack of internal democracy.
In the 2018 municipal elections, the FvD won 3 seats at the Amsterdam city council.
During the 2019 provincial elections, Forum for Democracy won 86 seats spread across the 12 provinces of the Netherlands. In South Holland, North Holland and Flevoland, FvD became the largest party, winning 11, 9 and 8 seats respectively. In all other provinces, the party captured either the second or third spot in terms of the popular vote.
You British people recognize him?

Daniel Hannan and Campaign to Leave the EU | Wikipedia |
Hannan, being one of the founders of the successful Vote Leave campaign, was at the forefront of the 2016 Referendum on membership of the European Union, being described in The Guardian as "the man who brought you Brexit"
Along with Douglas Carswell, Hannan is credited with being "part of the hard core who kept the flame of Tory Euroscepticism burning -- and tirelessly promoted their own positive, internationalist case for Britain's exit from the EU in parallel to Farage's negative, isolationist one." As he was about to graduate, Hannan wrote to Tory rebels against the Maastricht Bill 1992 who together created the European Research Group, with Hannan as their secretary.
Hannan claims the name was intentionally innocuous, since the group worked unabashedly against the single currency and the ECJ. Hannan was involved in the creation of the Congress for Democracy, an umbrella organisation for different Eurosceptic groups, which reportedly contained both trade union shop stewards and UKIP activists.
On Twitter, Hannan claimed that "it's irresponsible to scare EU nationals in the UK by hinting their status might change after Brexit. No one's suggesting such a thing". Despite that the government wish to make EU nationals apply for "settled status" to remain here.

A Star Is Born
Motivated by this "star in the east," they first traveled to Jerusalem and told King Herod the prophecy that a new ruler of the people of Israel would be born. We also need to think like King Herod, who asked the wise men when the star had appeared, because he and his court, apparently, were unaware of any such star in the sky.
The Jew Jesus could be considered a socialist ... not so the rise of the alt-right with Netanyahu, Trump, May, Baudet ...
