The Morning Rant

So they polled some Germans back in December as to who they thought was "the greatest threat to world peace" and here are the results:


threats to world peace 01.jpg


I'm willing to bet that few of those polled knew what the hell any of these guys think or do. And WTF does "world peace" mean, anyway? I mean, if Pakistan and India have a border clash, is that Trump's fault? I think the poll actually is nothing more than a favorable/unfavorable popularity contest.
Obviously, a lot of Krauts don't like Trump.

To which I say: so what?

I notice that a these sorts of polls get a lot of publicity whenever a Republican is president, and I'm always amused when progressive incorporate them into their Shame Campaign against their political enemies, i.e. us. "See here", they tell us, "the Europeans don't like Trump and they don't like America, and that's A Bad Thing. So we've got to change the way we do things so they like us again."

The thing is, Europeans have always hated and resented America. They may have had a marginally higher opinion of America when Obama was president, but that was most likely because his view of America was closer to theirs. That is, America had No Right to tower over all of the other nations of the world as it so clearly does, so the entire purpose of the Obama presidency was to bring America down to the level of the rest of the world, to handicap, kneecap, and hobble the American people and the American economy until we're just another shabby little socialist country. Europeans are Our Betters and we should strive to be more like them. That's the future that Obama and the other globalists are trying to bring about. Because they prefer global mediocrity where every country gets a participation trophy to a world upon which America bestrides like a colossus. Europeans hate that. Globalists hate that. Obama really hates that. The very idea that America should be, or is, an exceptional country that other countries would do well to emulate is deeply offensive to them.

Which is why Trump is despised so much by proponents of the "it's a small world after all", esperantist global world order. Trump is the very embodiment of "America, f* yeah!" who cares *not one whit* what the Euro-weenies think. They've hated us ever since we said screw you and came hear to start our own country. And instead of dying out, we had the temerity to succeed, and not only just succeed, but to become the most successful and powerful nation the world has ever seen.

This how I think about it: the world is like high school writ large. And America, meaning the United States of America, is the most popular student in school who is also a 3-letter sports jock with rugged good looks and, on top of that, is a straight 'A' student. All of the girls think he's just dreamy and of course he gets his pick of the hottest cheerleaders. Naturally, someone like this is going to stir up a lot of resentment from ankle-biters who aren't as good or as successful as he is, and there's nothing they'd like more than to see him brought down, or at least lower.

One last thing: anyone applying for a government job should be shown these poll results, and then asked if they are bothered by them. If the applicant responds yes, they should be immediately marched out of the building, and their applications for employment round-filed. Because they obviously do not understand America and are thus unsuitable for any sort of government service.
