Erdogan, Angela, & Chuck — Can Trump Save Europe?

Turkey’s Recep Tayyip Erdogan, in his unrelenting quest to be permanent dictator of his country and who knows where else, is accusing Dutch officials of Nazism for denying his proxies the ability to campaign for him among Holland’s sizable Turkish population  Almost simultaneously, a group of Senate Democrats is proffering legislation to overturn President Trump’s temporary travel ban on six Muslim majority countries.

These two events seem unrelated — NATO member Turkey is not one of the six — but in actuality they are tied closely together because they highlight a growing dilemma that is approaching catastrophe.  Trump’s travel ban may be of some use, even necessary, in the short run, but it is only a temporary bandaid for what confronts us.

    Fuck Europe. Let them save themselves for a change. If they survive maybe they’ll appreciate what they have. Seriously, I despise the arrogant, meddling bastards.

      The US may want to try, after all, where are the Europeans going to try to escape to after the founding of the European-Asian-African caliphate?

      Enlightened self interest might rule here.

        I doubt most Europeans would notice the difference between their current socialist masters and their new Islamic masters. The only thing I worry about is their nuclear arsenals.

          They will find out, and they really really won’t like it. They thought that they were being oppressed before, but then they will find out what Western Civilization provided them only when they lose it.

            Check out the election results. It wasn’t even close and by the time the next election comes around the indigenous dutch will be an even smaller percentage of the population. This is playing out the same all over western Europe.

    Not Trump cannot save Europe. He will do well if he is able to save the United States, which is his sole responsibility. As for Western Europe, the ball is in their court. Save yourselves or perish.
