Should Europe Tremble In Fear For American Socialism?

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.

Oh my!

I don’t know if I should even reply to this, or merely put it up here so my readership has something to guffaw at. Anyway, I will try and reply, but I am afraid any answer I can give will pale in the grand cluelessness that is that quote. Actually the entire article by this proclaimer of American supremacy James Lewis is hilarious beyond comprehension.

Protective wings of a benevolent superpower. Just ask peoples all over the world exactly how benevolent those wings are, especially South America and the Middle East. And the only reason Europe hasn’t been exploited by the U.S. like the Second- and Third World has been, is because the U.S. needs Europe. Needs its material resources, its technology and inventions. Not to mention the influence of the European Union on the international monetary playing field. Europeans have no illusions about what American benevolence means, they only need to look at countries like Cuba, Honduras, Panama and Haiti to learn all they need to.

Speaking of benevolence: how benevolent exactly is the U.S. when it comes to the Star Wars defense shield? Or the continuous insults to NATO and the United Nations and dangerous abandonment international treaties? Especially by James Lewis’ hero George Walker Bush. A further example from my home nation: The Bush White House has vowed to invade The Netherlands if and when an American citizen would be imprisoned in the international war tribunal in The Hague. No matter the level of war crimes this U.S. Citizen might have committed. Some benevolence. Some protection.

Spending all your tax money to buy votes for the socialist Ruling Class. I’m not sure what Lewis means by this… Could it be he equates Western European politics to politically corrupt regimes like many ex-Soviet Union states? If so, I do invite him to actually live here for a while. He’ll see some corruption, of course, but certainly no more than in his precious motherland. Less, actually.

Also: Ruling Class? (With capital spelling?) The U.S. actually has more of a “ruling class” than Europe does. In the U.S., one needs to indulge in extensive campaigning in order to get any high-ranking positions in the government. This is extremely costly, thus effectively excluding anyone from getting elected who doesn’t have the liquidity and wealthy connections his or her opponent does. While there is campaigning in Europe, Euro citizens in general look down on overly expensive, shallow elections. As any informed electorate ought to. But naturally, in Lewis’ world, the only people who are eligible to rule are those which money and power. Just let the little people rot.

It’s been one long, grand, drug-infested, sex-drenched, self-indulgent, tabloid party scene. Must I remind Lewis and anyone who follows his sentiments that the U.S. is soft- and hard drugs nation number one? The Netherlands, a country with a reputation for being drugs-friendly, has far less drug addicts per capita than the U.S. does. In fact, the hardest drug Dutch junks use is crack, while the American drug-of-choice is Meth- a far more dangerous substance. The Netherlands is actually a good example of how being soft on drugs helps the war on destructive and addictive substances.

Sex-drenched then? Well, what can I say? I wonder if Lewis knows that the American porn industry is a bigger industry than Hollywood is? Does he also know that beauty pageants are typically American invention? That it is American society which promotes looking your sexiest more than any other nation in the world? What about music acts like Britney Spears and The Chippendales? The U.S. is viewed globally as the most immoral nation in the world. Where does he think this sentiment comes from?

Now seriously, how Lewis fails to notice his own American self-indulgence but instead accuses the E.U. of self-centeredness is a real mystery to  me. I do not think I am exaggerating much when I claim that pretty much any mainstream multimedia product that America exports simply screams Americanism. Hollywood and pop music in particular, of course, but things run deeper than that. Only 20% of Americans have passports. In fact, most Americans couldn’t point out Europe on a map. Americans are literally obsessed with their own history, especially with the founding fathers and past presidents. The American flag is everywhere. The same goes for American car makes. Anything foreign is to most Americans weird and/or dangerous.

Speaking Of danger: any time danger threatens you look to Washington for protection. Well, not that there has been much danger the past sixty years, apart from the Cold War which wouldn’t have existed or would have been far less depressing had the U.S. not been there. Is this a correct moment to point out that America’s War On Terror has increased acts of terror incredibly world-wide? That it is this “war” that is alienating and polarizing Muslims worldwide, including those that live in our very nations? How is this increasing threat of Islamic terror protecting us and did Europe ask for it? In fact, Europe did not ask for it, thank you very much. Virtually the whole world asked the U.S. to use non-aggressive tactics against terror, as a matter of fact. The U.S. responded to her allies with threats and insults. So much for benevolence and protection.

Europe today is, for a fact, intensely disgusted with American imperialism. Fed up with being bullied and patronized. This is why when Obama promised chance, Europe stirred and claimed support for him. Personally, I don’t think Obama will be all that, but even my worst projections will still be miles ahead of the Reaganisms and the Bush Doctrines that have been imposed on the free world for decades now.

The only thing Europe trembles in fear of, with respect to America, is an assassination of Obama by someone who listens too much to fear-mongering bigots like James Lewis and his ilk.

    I didn’t read everything you wrote, I’m not much of a reader. I think ‘they’-the religious and powersick- must have burned all the good books cause I don’t like much of what we have to read for various reasons. Thanks for your tort/rant/expression on this person. I’ve often thought that now that the ‘ruling class’ has been somewhat identified and exposed ,as it were. That with their funds, they may try to “spin it”. Typing in ‘ruling class’ on google will get you to an approx. 1 hour “expose'” on what the american ruling class is. A proposed quote from the group would be something like,” Take ‘your’ education and help us promote freedom”. “do no harm” was the other phrase expressed at a poignant time in the video.
    After seeing this and contemplating the content I began to see a clever ruse.
    By acknowledging their existence they get to tell ‘the story’.

    As if to sooth those marginalized by their rape of nature.
    //aside,
    I know you didn’t ask but My way of politics and law would include the respectful use of the earths resources with sound healthy outcomes as well as and not indecently a true mature collective safe guard of human dignity.
    Not the dignity in Wiki or the dictionary either. That phrase “human dignity” as defined in the ‘educated’ masses is with few exceptions is skewed, with the word ‘ethical’ instead of the word ‘moral’ is being used as the rule. My argument is this as an example. It may be ethical for a king to execute a person for a crime but it is not moral. It may be ethical for a car dealer to sign the last owners name to the old title and pocket the money but it is not moral.
    Although mr. Lewis may not be affiliated with these others directly it seems the ‘ruling class’ has taken it up a notch[or down] with this highly sophisticated social engineering nonsense.
    James seems to me to be a very clever weaver of these ideas into the public content.

    Guys like Peter Singer although attempting to get it right get it all wrong based on the simple fact that humans are a part of the whole not masters over it, as he implies.

    “The truth does not diminish or change, I have no fear even though my views may be fatal for me and others that agree. ” edeichinger2011 aka/kingofallclergy Arlington Tx
    hey good luck to you and your colleagues/copy and paste at will E.G.E.

    I found your site after googling James Lewis. I just read a story of his on the unfortunately named American Thinker site and was blown away by its content. I don’t know that it contained a sentence that didn’t offend, or contained a substantiated fact (substantiated by the author, or ANYONE….EVER).

    Unreal.
