It's Schafenfreude Day

DSD points out a certain degree of humbuggery in US smugness about 'Eurabia'. How can they proudly proclaim that ‘it couldn’t happen here’ when faced with outrages like the amnesty train wreck ? Personally, I’d cite something like this, but still the basic point remains.

Liberalism is a cancer that affects every branch of Western Civilisation. To declare some countries hopeless and others invulnerable is to play into the Left's hands. The EU's obsession with clamping down on free speech hardly arises from fear that people will be too vocal in calling for more dhimmitude. Meanwhile, lest we forget, had Elian Gonzalez drowned the Democrat vote would not have collapsed from 39% of Florida’s Cubans down to 23%, and Al Goreon would have won in 2000.

If it’s insane for US bloggers to crow over the collapse of Europe, it’s positively suicidal for Eurobloggers to wish for the collapse of the US. We’re in this together, no matter what the animals in the comments section at lgf might think. To quote a famous Septic, if we don’t hang together, we’ll surely hang separately.
