America's Two Party System - The European Party (Democrats) and the American Party (Republicans)

July 19th 2006

AMERICA’S NEW TWO PARTY SYSTEM—THE EUROPEAN PARTY (DEMOCRATS) AND THE AMERICAN PARTY (REPUBLICANS)

Commentary

It’s been forty years since the late great longshoreman philosopher Eric Hoffer told a stunned Eric Severeid that John F. Kennedy was not an American—he was a European. Severeid was interviewing Hoffer for CBS in what turned out to be the greatest single hour in television history. How many times did JFK cross the Mississippi asked Hoffer, and how many times did he cross the Atlantic? If Hoffer were alive today he would probably accuse the entire Democratic Party of crossing the Atlantic.

The Party of Andrew Jackson is still called the Democratic Party but the label is no longer a snug fit. And it’s the same with the Republicans. There is not much truth in advertising in either party. And the Red State-Blue State nonsense makes even less sense. After all, Reds are supposed to be left of center.  

 

There was a time though when both parties could legitimately be called American parties. Unfortunately, that’s no longer true. Blame it on the Vietnam War. That’s when it started. Maybe it started before then—maybe it was inevitable. The Republican Party is now, for all practical purposes, the American Party and the Democratic Party, for better or worse, is the European Party. Let’s call them what they are. And the gap between the dinosaurs grows larger with each passing day.

The American Party (the Republicans) believes in John Wayne, Daddy Warbucks and George S. Patton; the European Party (the Democrats) believes in Woody Allen, Cindy Sheehan and the last Marine to desert his post in Iraq. They both claim to be patriotic. It’s my country right or wrong versus my country when it’s right which it hardly ever is. The American Party supported the wars in Korea and Vietnam started by the ‘other’ party. The European Party has—or will—desert every war no matter who has started it. The Euros have shed more tears over Abu Ghraib than they did over 9/11—they think the World Trade Center disaster was as much America’s fault as Osama bin Laden’s. Forget that all of Islam’s problems predated the existence of the United States by 1,100 years. Few Democrats objected to Bill Clinton’s bombing of innocent civilians in Kosovo and Serbia but then they were doing Europe’s work.

 

Sure, some members of the American Party are High Nooners—like Gary Cooper they are willing to go it alone. On the other hand, the European Party will not venture near the House of Frankenstein (the Middle East) without someone holding their hand—bring Chirac, bring Blair, bring the High Dunder-Head of Liechtenstein, bring the Emir of Baluchistan, bring the Rev. Robert Edgar of the National Council of Churches on board and they will stand firm at the Alamo, and if not there then at Valley Forge. An “I’m with you” from the Mayor of Dodge City was enough for the Texas Gunslinger.

Eric Hoffer said, “The working man eloped with history and ran off to America.” No one has said it better. Once upon a time both parties believed this. The modern world, like it or not, is the creation of the white, heterosexual, Christian male. No one else could have done it. This embarrasses the post-modern Democrats—it’s what makes them Europeans. These self-evident truths fly in the face of fifty years of political correctness, fifty years of trashing Whitey, fifty years of accepting one Communist failure after another; fifty years of unceasing moral equivalency. Europe is the Democracy’s Brave New World. It’s where socialism has triumphed and they desperately want to be a part of it. It’s the land of the 30-hour week—where probationary employees get a month’s paid vacation. It’s the land of gay marriages, group sex on demand, where God is kept in the closet save for Allah who must be tolerated in the name of cultural diversity. The European Party (the Democrats) believes the salvation of America lies in

 international organizations—in the United Nations, the European Union, Amnesty International, the World Court, the International Red Cross and Red Crescent, the World Trade Organization, UNICEF and hundreds of other too numerous to mention.

If John Kerry or Al Gore had been elected they would have sent the UN after Osama bin Laden and Saddam Hussein—the Keystone Kops after Darth Vader. Apparently there is no end to Democratic gullibility. Al Capone would have trusted Bugs Moran and the Purple Gang before Kofi Annan and the UN. There are more mass murderers, psychopaths, child molesters, snake oil salesmen, and inside traders in the UN than there are in the Mafia and they have stolen more money. The US has more real friends in Stalin’s Graveyard on the Arctic Circle, population 100, than it has in the UN. Russia, China and France supplied or aided Saddam Hussein right up to the invasion of Iraq.

America’s friends lie across the Pacific, not across the Atlantic. Japan, South Korea, the Philippines, India, Australia, and Taiwan are more like us than the wretched European countries that have been surrendering their culture, their history and their freedoms to a spurious cultural diversity that has taken them farther down the pagan rat hole than Adolph Hitler could have imagined.

Europe, as we know it, is dying, “hamstrung,” as Serge Trifkovic has written, “by a ruling class composed of neo-Marxists, guilt-ridden self-haters and appeasers.” These are the very people—the Romano Prodis and Javier Solanas—the Kerrys and Gores wish to emulate.

The hold these elites have “on the political power, the media, and the academe,” writes Trifkovic, “is undemocratic, unnatural, obscene. If Europe is to survive they need to be unmasked for what they are: traitors to their nations and their culture. If Europe is to survive, they must be replaced by people ready and willing to subject the issues of immigration and identity to the tests of democracy, unhindered by administrative or judicial fiat. And if America is to survive, America’s leaders need to begin to understand the truth of what is happening in Europe.” (Serge Trifkovic Defeating Jihad p. 140)

The Democratic Party has bought tickets on the PBUH Titanic. It’s out of Mecca, skippered by Mohammed, bound for dhimmitude. There will be no refunds.
