Rodrigo Duterte was a former lawyer, mayor, and is now the President of the Philippines. Duterte’s political success has been aided by his vocal support for the extrajudicial killing of drug users and criminals. Duterte has said he personally killed three rapist-kidnappers while he was Davao Mayor in 1988. On May 9, 2016, Duterte won the Philippine presidential election with 38.5% of the votes. Duterte threatened to withdraw the Philippines from the U.N. and pursue an independent foreign policy. Duterte was labelled “The Punisher” by Time Magazine, as it has been alleged that he is linked to over 1400 extrajudicial killings. Duterte in response to this said “If you are doing an illegal activity in my city, if you are a criminal or part of a syndicate that preys on the innocent people of the city, for as long as I am the mayor, you are a legitimate target of assassination.” The man that could claim that he is trying to make the Philippines great again, is all the more reason why he is nominated for The Unshackler Of The Year Award.
Cory Bernardi is a federal senator for the Australian Conservatives in South Australia. Cory had been a long supporter of Tony Abbott and a critic of Malcolm Turnbull and others on the left of the Liberal party, which is why he chose to leave and start his own brand. He has a strong stance on social issues, is against same sex marriage and the safe schools indoctrination programs, is a supporter of free speech in which he wants to repeal parts of the racial discrimination act, is a critic of Islam, and a critic of climate change. He has already aimed through several websites to unite all conservatives, and take on the radical leftist group “get up”.
Donald Trump has been very successful, whether it be as a real estate mogul, business man, hollywood personality, or politician. The Trump name is not only well known in New York, but on a global scale. Trump was successful in the 2016 United States Election, where he not only overcome 16 other quality candidates in the Republican Primaries, but also beat Hillary Clinton in the general election by a great margin. Trump was able to take states in the mid-west that had not turned red in decades. His appeal to the working class via his strong anti-immigration stance, anti political correctness, anti-globalisation, and pro freedom views has led to the rise of the alt-right movement, and in general a combination of conservative nationalist populism. He has been Time Magazine’s “Person Of The Year”, and has achieved so much, considering he had the media and establishment against him.
Nigel Farage is a British politician who led the UK Independence Party from 2006-2009, and again from 2010-2016. UKIP was founded in the early 90s, but rose to fame under Farage, when he was able to win them a large share of seats in the European Parliament, and achieved the 3rd highest vote in the 2015 general election. UKIP continued to gain in popularity as they campaigned strongly against immigration, globalisation, and the E.U. In June 2016 they were able to send a shock on a global scale, when the the U.K. voted to exit the European Union with 52% of the vote. Nigel Farage was the face behind the Brexit movement, and was the first of the many populist leaders to succeed.
Pauline Hanson entered federal politics in 1996. She has been to Australia what Donald Trump is to the United States. Her maiden speech in 1996 symbolised her journey to unconditionally speak the truth during her time in Parliament despite a growing atmosphere of political correctness. Her ultimate goal was, and always remains, to ensure the preservation of Australia’s values and identity amidst a time of progressivism and a tyrannical enforcement of multiculturalism. Unfortunate events within the Liberal Party of Australia resulted in a suspension of her political activities. But in 2016, Pauline entered politics again, and re-embarked on a journey to not only represent the best interests of the nation and its people, but also bring back migration and it’s issues to the centre of attention by revealing its consequences. Her One Nation party secured four Senate seats, and didn’t fail to make headlines in sensationalised mainstream news stories. Pauline has been called a racist and bigot countless times by the left simply for speaking the truth about migration and it’s disastrous effects. Despite her opponents’ attempts to put her down, Pauline has continued to rise, especially due to the fact that her views on migration are aligned with reality. With her love for Australia’s culture and commitment to uploading its values and way of life, Pauline Hanson is a true patriot.
Viktor Orbán has been Prime Minister of Hungary since 2010 which has been a country at the frontline of the European migrant crisis. Determined to protect his people Orban has built a southern border wall to keep migrants out and has demanded the European Union which was largely responsible for bringing these migrants in to pay for it. Orban states he is motivated to protect Hungary’s Christian culture and does not want to see women harassed as they have been in other European nations. For his stance the European Union is suing Hungary, it is for his defense of his peoples’ culture and defiance of the globalist agenda he is nominated for Unshackler of the Year.
Vladimir Putin was a former KGB foreign intelligence officer, Prime Minister, and current President of the Russian Federation. He has been Time “Person of the Year”, and made it on Forbes “World’s Most Powerful Individual” list four times. Putin has promoted conservative policies in social, cultural, and political matters. Putin has attacked globalism and neo-liberalism, and instead advocated nationalism. He was successful in annexing Crimea, and made in roads to taking back land that belonged to the old Soviet Union. He has a tough guy image and that best characterises the ideal alpha male. This sends the left into a frenzy as they know with Putin they will not be getting a cuck, but instead a real man that will get stuff done.
Marine Le Pen is a figurehead of national-conservatism in France. Le Pen is deeply critical of the European Union due to its semi-imperialistic function. She has openly and bravely spoken against the EU and Angela Merkel multiple times by: criticising the immigration policies, promoting protectionism, and highlighting the mass surveillance enforced by the EU along with the general corruption infesting the organisation. Marine Le Pen is a true figure of French patriotism.
Sebastian Kurz was the most successful nationalist candidate in European elections this year. He was elected Chancellor of Austria following the nation’s legislative elections with the two right wing parties the Austrian People’s Party and the Freedom Party uniting to form a Coalition. Despite his young age of 31 he was a successful Foreign Minister of Austria from 2014-17 where he sought to stop the inflow of funds into Austria used to spread radical Islamic ideology in the country. He was also a vocal critic of European Union’s migration policy. With the globalist fightback in full swing in Europe Kurz’ rise as a nationalist leader unafraid to stand up for the sovereignty of his people is why he has been nominated for Unshackler of the Year.
Andrzej Duda has been President of Poland since 2015 and is from the ruling Law and Justice Party. Poland has seen a nationalist resurgence under his Presidency with the Polish people opposed to accepting any migrants and have a desire to protect family and traditional life. Unlike other European nations the Polish government listens to the people, not the globalists and has defied the European Union on migration policy. Poland is truly a nation that has thrown off the shackles of its communist past and are now a proud free country.
