They're back. One of the pleasant things about the very best Dutch cafés is that most of them subscribe to a dozen or more newspapers from all over western Europe. It was thanks to this amenity that I became aware, soon after moving to Amsterdam from New York in the late 1990s, of the European media's poisonous hatred for the United States. In the eyes of almost all European journalists, I discovered, America was a land of illiterates, cretins, racists, xenophobes, warmongers.
And that was under Bill Clinton. It got even worse under George W. Bush. To be sure, on the day after 9/11 a few editorialists took the “We Are All Americans” line, but others enjoyed the opportunity to spit at the victims of Ground Zero, declaring that America had asked for it. Swedish author Jan Guillou cheered the strike on “U.S. imperialism.” Norwegian author Gert Nygårdshaug sneered at somebody's concern that the next target might be in Europe: Muslims, he explained, hate Americans, and with good reason; for Europeans, however, they had nothing but goodwill.......To Read More.......
My Take - It will be interesting to watch what happens in the next five years when their economy crashes and their Muslim population gets so large they demand the right to impose Sharia on Europe.

Let's try and get this once and for all. History has demonstrated socialism and all things left have no logical or moral foundation. Socialism is a power grab based on scaremongering and emotion. History has also demonstrated socialism and all other things left are always a disaster. That's history - and that history is incontestable. So how can anyone embrace it unless they're insane?
All this will be interesting to watch - and unlike their claims that America deserved 911 - they will deserve the disaster coming upon them because they really have earned it.
