Western Values Are Superior

Here’s part of President Donald Trump’s speech in Poland: “The fundamental question of our time is whether the West has the will to survive. Do we have the confidence in our values to defend them at any cost? Do we have enough respect for our citizens to protect our borders? Do we have the desire and the courage to preserve our civilization in the face of those who would subvert and destroy it?”

After this speech, which was warmly received by Poles, the president encountered predictable criticism. Most of the criticism reflected gross ignorance and dishonesty.

The Traitor class at work…

    “Western culture and values are superior to all others”

    I believe that statement may need to be put into the past tense. A culture that has no survival instincts can hardly be called superior. Its achievements will be forgotten in time by most, except for a few antiquarians who will study the detritus much like we study ancient Persia, Egypt, or Minoa.

      Agree, “Western culture and values WAS superior to all others”

      But western culture is all but extinct now, having been mostly replaced by the cultural Marxist fifth columnists who invaded the west from within

      Hey, take him. He is free as long as it is never permitted to cross the northern border again.

  • From the article:

    “Beinart said, “Donald Trump referred 10 times to ‘the West’ and five
    times to ‘our civilization.’ His white nationalist supporters will
    understand exactly what he means.” He added, “The West is a racial and
    religious term. To be considered Western, a country must be largely
    Christian (preferably Protestant or Catholic) and largely white.”

    What an ignorant thing to say.

    Where does one start?

    The West applies to all Western nation-states and the cultures therein. It is exclusionary only to the East.

    Is one being xenophobic if one refers only to Earth?

    As Western civilisation has in it all manner of races and religions, it is insulting to conclude that it means only or largely white. Haven’t Americans and Canadians of non-European extraction added positively to Western civilisation? Thanks for excluding them, Beinart.

    Does this man dress himself in the morning?
