As Europe loses its identity is the United States far behind?

CHARLOTTE, NC, September 4, 2017 – Here’s a little bar room question next time you want to win some beers at your local watering hole: How many terrorist attacks have taken place in Europe in 2017?

It’s early September, so we are speaking of a period of just eight months. More than ten attacks? Twenty? Thirty?

Actually the total is 35 attempted or executed attacks in Europe alone this year. That is an average of more than four per month. The sad fact is that most Americans don’t know, or even worse, care.

On average, there has been at least one attack a week in Europe in 2017. Of those incidents only one death out of 72 and 10 of 430 injuries were not traceable to the on-going invasion of Islamic refugees. So much for the “religion of peace.”

    If Europeans had any sense of self, van attacks would be unheard of.

    While Europe is losing its identity, the United States is losing its mind and goes the way of communism (the very crazy Western version)

    Never mind Canada is in the lead on this. For once we shall outdo those horrible Yanks. Now can we all be pround of such an accomplishment.

    Americans, especially the 62 million who voted for Trump, are far more patriotic than most Europeans. If Trump has a low job approval rating, Congress and the media rate much worse.

    America has a much stronger national identity than any country in Europe since 1945, and even then we could easily have been more nationalistic. In 1945 our level of nationalism was probably about on par with the Imperial Japanese, we just weren’t psychoticly cruel and wontonly sadistic; that’s not how we are hard-wired.
    How Europe thinks and acts is not an accurate model of how we are thinking.
    If we woke up with the U.K. laws tomorrow, we would have violent spontaneous revolutions by the end of the first 24-hours.
    When push-comes to shove, we can crank it up to eleven with the best of them.

      “When push-comes to shove, we can crank it up to eleven”

      I know many Americans like to think that that is the case, but the nightly news says otherwise. It is unfortunately not 1945 any more, and even if the US decline is a bit more chaotic the direction is the same and the end result will be similar. North Americans thought they could ignore or appease the rot in the core of their culture and get away with it. They are being proved wrong.

        Not so long ago, on 9/11/01, we rallied around the flag and were prepared to do whatever it took to defend our country. Bush the Younger had to cool down our ardor by telling us to resume business as usual while the “professionals” handled things. After 25 years of losers, voters had enough and elected Trump, who promised to make America great again. The fire still burns.

          The fire may have a few flickers, but if you were “prepared to do whatever it took to defend our country” there would not be any muslims or illegal aliens left in your country. They would be trying to get out as fast as they could before somebody identified them. You would not have tin pot dictators in N Korea threatening the US and getting away with it and if anyone suggests using force the whole commentariat saying the sky is falling. You would not have people in your government saying that Americans would be unwilling to make the sacrifices necessary to cut off all trade with countries that trade and support N Korea and Iran. etc etc. In short the fact that it may take a bit longer for the US to collapse is only because it started from a much stronger initial position. In the end the result will be the same if things keep going as they are.

        The comparison was to any country in Europe.
        I still think we look pretty darned favorable in that light.

          That’s not saying much.

    Canada has most certainly lost it’s identity (it’s not only lost it’s being erased & decimated).

    In some ways the Renaissance, the Enlightenment, the High Middle Ages, art, architecture, culture, music, literature, philosophy and science are side effects, spin offs of the main endeavor of European history for the last 2,000 years which has been to slaughter, rape, pillage, exterminate, burn, starve and generally make extinct all comers. So this makes perfect sense.
