The New Barbarians

Written by Roger W Gardner over at Radarsite

Really? I, for one, have grown sick and tired of these false and deceptive Old World arguments eagerly put forth against our great country, sick of the dishonest and transparent ruse of comparing the lowest forms of our American culture to the highest forms of some other culture in order to make the point that America is degrading the native cultures of the world. Too many pictures of those tacky MacDonald’s Golden Arches in Cairo or those blaring Coke signs in Rome. We didn’t exactly force this on you, you know? We didn’t twist your delicate arms until you cried Uncle. If you didn’t want this materialistic glitter, it wouldn’t be there. Simple as that. You despise our degenerate culture yet you adore our fantasy Disneylands.

But, what about all those other things? What about all those tremendous advances in medicine, science, technology, and the arts? What of our long honorable history of unparalleled generosity? What of all those war torn countries — many of whom were our bitterest enemies — who, through our open-hearted generosity were saved from utter collapse and ruin? What of our fashionably despised and dishonored military who, if they had not taken up their honorable duty in Britain and in Europe and tolerated the condescending insults from the very people they were protecting, who would have fallen under the boot of brutal Fascist or Communist tyrannies long ago and more than once?

Yet of course you despise us for this, you despise the strength that protects you. Why then not forswear our help and turn to that ever-more-hopelessly conflicted and useless UN for your protection? Or put your trust in that comically befuddled military power of the EU? The answer of course is simple. You need us. You need our protection and you despise us for that fact.

You love our inane glitzy Hollywood culture and of course you despise us for that, too. You look down your pinched noses at our pedestrian morays, but you would sell your grandmother for a shot on American Idol. Your pervasive multicultural absurdities have led you to eagerly embrace the blatant lie of Muslim moral superiority — despite all of the buckets of bloody evidence to the contrary. You have meekly acquiesced to a degenerate belief system that attempts to equate the embarrassment of a Britney Spears to the beheading of a Daniel Pearl. And you are proud of your cowardice and call it a shining example of tolerance and open-mindedness. You have refined yourself out of reality, and the delicate and precious world that you have constructed in its place will shatter about you like glass at the very first assault.

Simply put, you are dishonoring the honorable heritage of your brave grandparents, you are losing your will to fight back and thereby losing your precious and honorable society, yet you have the pomposity to attempt to condescend to our strong and brave America, whose soldiers are fighting and dying all over this violent world for other people’s freedoms. You insult us and you degrade us. And you rest assured in the comfortable conviction that you are somehow inherently intellectually and morally superior to us.

Well, this particular Yank, who has spent his whole adult life studying, is getting a little fed up with taking these innumerable snide remarks from a little people who haven’t shown the backbone or courage to save their own wonderful country from this growing onslaught of brutal barbarians. To appease your oppressors and save your precious hides, you have turned your backs on your own heroic sons, like the brave Lionheart, and criminalized his honesty and driven him from his home. You have embraced the cowardice of Chamberlain as your role model, and attempted to disguise your weaknesses by pretending that they are some higher form of civilized behavior called Multiculturalism.

We, then, the rude Yanks, are the new barbarians now. Yet, how then is it that somehow we have managed to accumulate more symphony orchestras than any other two European countries combined? more successful operas, more successful ballets, more internationally recognized artists and authors than any other country in this hemisphere? And why is it that this crass, unlettered public of ours, who is only interested in what brand of shoes they wear, works harder and puts in more hours and takes less vacations than any of those feeble and declining unionized socialistic European workers wallowing in their increasingly failing and stagnant economies could ever conceive of?

Through our good-hearted but misguided generosity we have become a paradigm of East Berlin in reverse — we are being forced to build walls to keep out the daily onslaught of frantic and desperate invaders who besiege our degenerate nation daily, literally dying and selling their very bodies to just get one foot into our detestable imperialistic country — to grab hold of that slim chance that perhaps today, if they’re lucky, and if they don’t get raped or robbed or sold off into prostitution rings, they just might make it past the border control and find a place here to live and perhaps find a little hope and happiness. These desperate people put the lie to all of those self-serving intellectual bullsh*t arguments about the declining moral promise of America or the unjust system of our government daily with their own blood.

For at least two generations now we Americans have been taking it on the chin from ignorant, self-righteous student activists and disillusioned psuedo-intellectuals brought up on that pervasive academic witches brew of those Marxist-driven, Moscow coordinated sanctimonious and cynically manipulated student protest movements of the 60s. We — and you — are now living with the bitter fruits of their destructive labors. Cynicism and disillusionment have become a refined art form throughout Old Europe and the UK, the motley uniform of the latest anti-capitalist, anti-American, antiwar avant-garde. To be wise is to be cynical, distrustful, and anti-American — only trailer park bumpkins are unthinkingly patriotic, only the uninformed, unwashed, beer-drinking chain-smokers are to be seen saluting the American flag without embarrassment.

Your house is on fire, yet somehow you manage to find the time to come over here and criticize our garden.

Anti_Americanism is indeed rampant throughout Britain and Europe.
It is not universal and of course there is much confusion as we all watch the Hollywood movies and not only that, but we reside in the protective space of US military power, in the shape of NATO, and indeed the potential of direct US intervention in a crisis, as we are Her allies.

Without American military power, Europe would be a sitting duck for much more terrorist activity and the possibility of direct attack at some future time.
This is why the E.U. is pushing for it's own Military Forces, drawn from all the member Nations, (especially the Brits.) and this is why America sees this as a potential for weakening of NATO, something which in turn will weaken America's influence in Europe.
European beaurocrats running a Euro Army would likely be a shambles, as we can see from the cobbled up Euro Consitution or so called Lisbon Treaty.
Imperceptibly, the rachet effect of a the one way track to a Federal Europe claws away individual Nation status and condemns the members States to become isolated "Regoional Entities" and the real power seeps away to the centralised beurocracy, that stinks of corruption and reeks of self inflated egos.
A recipe for total disaster for a future EU should we face a concerted attack or even a widespread connected terrorist insurgency.
Of which Lionheart and many others has pointed to, as we see the elements of the enemies army assembling within our Cities and towns.

The organs of the media, save a few, are Left-wing biased, and more so in Europe than Britain. The BBC is rotten to the core with Socialist and Marxist tendencies, where even comedy shows make fun of America, though often disguised by reference through the fatuous public face of Bush.
The media are thirsting to see Baracuda Obama take the reigns of power, and are entranced by his promises of a new American vision.
He is a fine candidate for Nostradamus' anti-Christ, he promises Israel protection, but it is not clear what he means.
Obama as President, could see the Iranian backed Hizbollah and also Hamas, launch unprecedented attacks on Israel, and at that point, I believe the true nature of Obama's taquiya (speaking with two tongues) will become evident, leaving Israel to use ultimate power to protect itself, and leading to the reality of the feared third world war.

Well said Roger. Why is it that Europeans hate America but worship our celebrities? They hate what they call our naivety and call themselves sophisticated while being gang raped by the very immigrants that they have let destroy their own unique cultures?

I will take the US with its problems before I would allow myself to wallow in the Dhimmitude that Europe is making for itself.

I don't want to start some transatlantic war here but it is a bit rich that your article is about the anti-American views based on clich├ęd naunces of American culture and society that some Europeans and Brits use yet you tar every European and Brit with the same brush?

The reason why I have stopped posting to LGF is because of this 'You Brit' attitude yet every British and European poster has made the point that problems in America are being caused by liberal moonbats.

You somehow think that the un-American attitudes of somehow influenced by Europeans. If this is true then I take it this happened in the sixties as well with the Vietnam war when Europeans somehow brainwashed a large part of the American population to oppose the war?

You don't realise that the movement that is responsible for this, whether you call it socialism, marxism or communism, is international in nature and inherent in all countries.

It has always been in America but has not been able to rear is head as successfully as it has over here due to the strength of national patriotism that is the bedrock of your society.

Yes, our society is being allowed to be damaged due to 'cowards flinching and traitors sneering' but there are millions of decent folk in our country who know what is happening and will not stand for it.

The problem is that there isn't a shared identity over there that is as strong as most American's have with the stars and stripes.

With nothing to effectively rally under the millions of British people who oppose what is happening to our country are unable to do anything apart from small-scale protesting which are effectively silenced by the MSM by no coverage and 'crushed' by the liberal elites with cries of racism and xenophobia.

With no coverage from the MSM, the only way to tell what is going on is to rely on the blogosphere and it is hard to know what is true or not.

If any American posters who are interested about how 'things got to way they are' over here, there is an interesting post over at the Britishnationalism forum. Disregarding the 'white nationalism stuff', the later posts by truthfinder are illuminating

I wonder why the author of this piece didn't have a pic of F.D.R. and Joe Stalin sitting and chatting as good chums. Or Donald Rumsfeld shakeing hands with a recent baddie Saddam Hussien.
We who watch and see the U.S.'s recent president go and dance with, wave swords in the air with, leaders in the middle east supplicating themselves and the U.S. for a few more barrels of oil must ask ourselves: who should we trust to help fight against the Islamshevik pox?
Since countries like Serbia are attacked with bombs and economic pressure because they don't tow the "Globalization" line lead by the good ole U.S.A. we can only assume that were better off building new political and cultural entities to produce the only real solution to the dark age that looms. That solution is Civility and not the utopic solipsistic fantasy (Liberty) that got us into the mess were in.

As politically and ideologically moribund leaderships in any and all western countries including the U.S.A. sputter and stall we'll have the opportunity to do what must be done. End Islam.

Stop pointing fingers and just do what must be done. Especially by not buying Paris Hiltons next sex tape or any other cultural contribution from the land of the free and home of the "Brave".

I do have to say the writer has hit the nail on the head with the snobbery and hypocrisy that is inherent in Europe and here in the UK.

It doesn't matter how liberal or equalitarian someone is,once they come into a bit of money, the snob comes out and they need someone to look down on.

That's why I like America, the yanks have a habit of saying things without thinking like the 'you brit' as I mentioned in previous post but there's no airs and graces, what you see is what you get and good salt of the earth people.

Those damn Yanks!
American people themselves have many fine qualities, though we Brits can find them a bit "in your face."
That shouldn't be a problem when we have so much in common.
Shame about the Leadership of the US, who have lost their collective brains and either are totally corrupt or completely incompetent, or a bit of both.
