Nigel Farage joined the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) Friday afternoon to address the event in a speech. This was his third CPAC, and he praised the event organizers for having him yet again.
Farage frequently stressed during his speech that the good things in life take time and are worth fighting for. It took Farage almost three decades to rally people in the United Kingdom against the European Union and orchestrate the successful Brexit vote.
“In 2016 with the Brexit vote and with the election of Donald Trump, we stopped the establishment! We did!” Farage said.
Farage praised Trump repeatedly, and encouraged patriots in attendance that the revolution is still chugging along and the momentum is on their side.
“I think that with over a year into the Presidency, I now think [supporting Donald Trump] was the best decision I have ever made in my life,” Farage said. “I thought he would be good, but he has exceeded all expectations.”
Farage talked with Trump after his speech this morning, and was impressed with the man’s temperament and confidence. He believes that Trump is at the “very top of his game” and that he needs to me because the establishment is fighting harder than ever before. The global battle for national sovereignty is far from over.
Farage also addressed conspiracy theories hatched about him regarding Wikileaks and Russia. He considers them to be preposterous and amusing, and claims that his only ties to Russia are his occasional swigs of their tasty vodka.
Farage denigrated international progressive financier George Soros and his Open Society forum as well, and their agenda to open borders and delegitimize the nation-state. He stressed that Trump supporters ought not to be complacent despite the gains that have been made in recent years.
“Please, please go and help your President move on to even greater things!” Farage pleaded to the audience. He says that conservatives need to find their walking shoes for the mid-term elections coming up later in the year.
Farage also bemoaned recent UK political events to undo the Brexit. “Big banks, big business and big politics” stand in the way of the will of the people, according to Farage. He claims he will fight tooth and nail to keep Brexit intact, whether or not there is another referendum.
“If they want that battle to be re-fought, I will be there and the next time for me, it will be no more mister nice guy!” Farage said in a tongue-in-cheek manner toward the end of his speech. He closed out day three of CPAC, which concludes tomorrow.
