Paris is burning …
and the Arc de Triomphe is all sooty.
I should care, but I don’t.
“A third weekend of nationwide protests … largely made up of working-class people angry about a planned increase in fuel taxes and their dwindling purchasing power …”
I just can’t care about France … or Europe.
Not because I’m an American snob … or a fan of the new “n” word … “nationalism.” I just won’t let myself care because all of this globalism gunk started there. In Italy and France … and the UK. And especially with those guilt-ridden Germans.
Now it’s spread like a pox to places like Scotland and Wales. Even Spain … and Ireland.
Borders have collapsed … and proselytizing Muslims packed up and headed to the land of Merkel and Mays. There they grew fat … and powerful … and arrogant … on Europe’s generous welfare … while they tore the continent apart.
And that’s exactly what we’re trying to avoid here … on our southern border. Preventing a breakdown that convulses us … and over-doses us on political correctness.
Some American politicians don’t think this is a very good idea at all. At least their silence says so.
They’ve said nothing about the chaos at the border. Offered no reassurances … no support of any kind.
That’s diseased politics.
Sacrificing your nation’s security for political gain. Using America … and our families … as political bargaining chips. Selling out our way of life … because it’s good, personal politics.
But that’s poisoned politics. And it’s a European fad we should send right back.
Europeans invited their troubles. Waved them in. Then made them worse. They’re good at that.
“Broken glass and empty tear gas canisters … burned cars … and smashed store windows in several of the wealthiest neighborhoods … law enforcement officials said that the situation was close to an insurrection.”
Everyday Frenchmen have had their fill. They’re sick of being a political after-thought. Sick of paying for liberal fascinations. That’s what’s driven them to the streets.
“None of the … protesters expressed allegiance to any politician: Most said politics disgusted them.“
They need their own Donald Trump.
A French Trump. And an English one, too. A Trump for Italy and Spain. Another for Belgium and Sweden.
Someone who “doesn’t tiptoe around the thousand new rules of political correctness.”
Leaders who can save Europeans from themselves.
