Why Europe is secretly afraid of a socialist America

American Thinker | James Lewis | Nov. 14, 2008

Europe would crumble like a soggy crouton without America’s commitment to its defense. We saw that happen three times in the 20th century, and the bad news is that it’s starting again. Real danger is at the gates; Europe’s Ruling Class is in denial; and half of it is preparing to surrender to the Russians or the Muslim fascists, whichever gets there first.

Suppose you’ve been living under the protective wings of a benevolent superpower for sixty years. And suppose you’ve used that big half century to take off on an endless vacation — spending all your tax money to buy votes for the socialist Ruling Class. It’s been one long, grand, drug-infested, sex-drenched, self-indulgent, tabloid party scene. Any time danger threatens you look to Washington for protection. The rest of the time you noisily abuse those Yankee imperialists, merely to boost your fragile ego. Corruption has become pervasive.

That’s Europe today. What a sweet deal.

But now you see your guardian superpower electing a guy who wants to follow your example. Whooops! Time to sober up. Fast.

Yes, you went hoarse cheering Obama’s ego trip at the Berlin Victory Monument, because you love the idea that O will teach America to love Eurosocialism forever and ever. But shivers are running up and down your spine — because if he is what you think he is, America won’t be there any more to save you. It will just slide into vegetarian nihilism and leave Europe to the New Soviet Empire.

  1. I think that we ought to withdraw our forces from Europe and let the Europeans take care of themselves. We have facilitated their immaturity too long, and it has been destructive of European culture. For their own good, Americans need to show the Continent some tough love.

    If they cave to Russia or continue their suicidal Eurarabian project, so be it. A little real oppression might be what they need to wake up from their foolish dreaming. They say that there are no atheists in foxholes. Are there atheists in dhimmitude? A little taste of Sharia might make the secular Left in Europe reassess their understanding of the backwards oppressiveness of their ancestral Christianity.
