What They Said on Sunday

by JLH

Two days after the first effects of Friday’s air attack on Syria had worn off, this is what some significant German-language newspapers chose to headline. Note how Macron moves easily in both camps.

  1. A self-indulgent, narcissistic “man-boy” named Trump……the pathetic victim {Macron} of an old sexual predator who emasculated him at an early age…and a barren dried up harpy with a pretty good hairdo. These are the principal actors in the recent unleashing of a criminal attack on a sovereign Nation that refuses to allow a pipeline to cross its territory. Unfortunately, the bulk of the populations of most Western Nations consist of insouciant adolescents who go along with this criminality and commit National suicide by importing people from primitive and barbaric cultures.

    Christian Russia and a handful of Eastern European countries are all that is left of Civilization. The sooner the West collapses….the better off the world will be. Smart young people should learn the Cyrillic alphabet and move East.

    God Bless the very patient Putin.

    • Let me point out you set yourself up for disaster when you demonize in personal terms one set of political leaders (Trump, Merkel) and idolize another (Putin). The insanity of US involvement in (indeed, sponsorship of) the Syrian War is not a function of the corruption or venality of Trump, but of a whole political class of people, a corrupt communications industry and a government structure susceptible to the maximum leveraging of special interests.

      If you moved to Russia, you might be unnerved by the massive Muslim street prayer demonstrations, the pervasive construction of mosques, and the proportion of Muslims in the Russian military. Even the character of Hungary might change if they allow in too many white, European refugees who earlier themselves voted for the liberal immigration policies that ruined their country.

      The biggest problem with Trump seems to be that he is susceptible to the massive, and very real, pressures from the Deep State and the bi-partisan war party of the establishment Republicans and Democrats. In truth, I don’t know if anyone in that high-pressure situation, with all his information filtered through the corrupt and compromised intelligence establishment. Even if he listened to Fox news, except for Tucker Carlson, the majority of commentary on Fox supported the proposition that Assad is a world-class tyrant who kills his own people for no reason and must be deposed.
