About That World Opinion Poll
Posted by: MichaelW on Thursday, September 11, 2008

Michael Asher has done us all the favor of graphically depicting just how important the rest of the world's opinion as to who Americans elect as President really is:


Just in case that wasn't already clear.

Look, Michael, I am sympathetic. When making a point with the wingnut crowd, it is best to use pretty colors and simple graphics. Too many words make them confused.

Thanks, mk. In the same vein, I try to use the "humor" tag to dissuade stupid moonbat comments, but that doesn’t seem to work either.

Here is a serious question for your Michael: Why do wingnuts hate Europe? Seriously. What is it about Europe that sets you wingnuts off? Is it the small cars? The lack of concern about their politicans’ sex lives? Maybe you hate the liberal drug "laws" in Holland. Or the libertarian attitude with respect to prostitution that so many of the countries over there have.

My best guess is that Europe stands for enlightment thinking, and that’s what you really hate. After all, your VP nominee thinks the world is 6000 years old.

Here’s another serious question Michael: How many times have you been to Europe? And what did you learn while you were there?

I have no idea, because I’m not sure who "wingnuts" are, especially when it’s you referring to them.

Personally, I just hate anyone telling me what to do, even more so when they blatantly try to manipulate and shame me into to conforming to their opinion. But that’s just me. I take it you’re different that way.

Enough to know you can’t get peanut butter — anywhere — and that they really hate it when you tip. Oh, and it’s difficult to get a beer in Spain unless you know how to hiss.

Ummm ... what was you’re point?

Then your best guess is quite lame, because one of the major problems many of us have with Europe is that the dominant political faction (the left) there has abandoned Enlightenment thinking in favor of post-modernist thought. The left in the US has done the same.

As I have said many times in comments here, libertarians and conservatives at least share the common platform of Enlightenment-based thinking, while the left is post-modernist. That means that as a libertarian, I can argue and discuss with a conservative, but it’s somewhere between very difficult and impossible to do the same with a leftist because we don’t even share the same idea of the concept of "truth".

Theoretically, you should know all this, because you commented on this thread. Of course, I’ve never been convinced that you actually read the posts or comments here, except skimming enough to pick up keywords you can hurl insults against.

That’s typical post-modern behavior, by they way. Your implicit assumption is that we non-leftists are just too stupid or ignorant or both to actually understand the brilliant edifice of leftism, so we are only worthy of your contempt and there’s no point in trying to understand what we’re actually saying. As I’ve said to you before, I like it that you behave this way. It does a fabulous job of exposing to our readers the true character of today’s left.

Here is a serious question for you MK. Why do you disappear from posts when your serious questions are answered?

And, though I don’t consider myself a ’wingnut’, I’ll gladly tell you I don’t hate Europe. I’ve been there a number of times. Marvelous history. Beautiful cities and country side. Generally pleasant people. Usually good food. Great beer and the wine ain’t too shabby.

What I don’t like about Europe is their political leanings. Things like France requiring a 36 hour work week and punishing anyone who dares to work more. Cradle to grave benefits at the expense of their own national defense (which they can do why? Oh yeah, we’ve always come to bail them out).

Oh, one thing I do hate about Europe is how hard it is to get ice for a drink! Come on! Ice???

I believe Billy fisked you pretty good on this one, so I’ll let it pass.
Or the libertarian attitude with respect to prostitution that so many of the countries over there have.
Who has a problem with that???

Who indeed? If you polled the front-page posters here, I suspect the majority position would be that prostitution should be legal in the US. I certainly feel that way.

But mk still has problems recognizing that someone who supports the Iraq effort might actually be something other than a fundametalist religious conservative.

Not just Europe. In Venezuela I had to beg for some ice. Finally the waiter relented and brought me my ice. One cube.

And I got to say you guys treat MK much nicer that they do over at JustOneMinute.

"And what did you learn while you were there?"

I don’t know about Michael, but I have been there several times, and have learned that it is much nicer here. Better plumbing, cheaper food (and everything else), less cramped, etc. Europe is a nice place to visit, especially if you like history, but I wouldn’t want to live there. Evidently quite a few Europeans feel the same.

A little projection MK?
You’re a binary person MK - on and off - like or HATE are not the only two options for sane adults. I don’t know much about you except what you post here, but I wouldn’t presume to know your opinions on all subjects.
We’re cookie cutter right wing demons to you, all identical.

Just because we think they ought to mind their own business about who we want to lead us doesn’t mean we hate them. Course they’d tell us we were nosy, interfering busybodies if we tried to influence their elections and threatened them. Sauce, goose, gander. I understand why they think they have a right to an opinion on the matter, but, they don’t.

In the meantime I don’t appreciate being threatened by lefties from the rest of the world, even if I do find their threats completely and utterly laughable.

Pax Americana Baby.

McQ encourages us to be nice to the moonbats. Something about their tinfoil hats...

Oh - and MK, thanks for making my point from this morning. You show up, drop bombs, and BAM! You’re gone...

A better question is why the anti-humanistic anti-Enlightenment left-filth in this country don’t want us to emulate RATIONAL European initiatives such as cleaner nuclear power.

We don’t hate Europe. We just don’t want to turn the US into a European style country with a low per capita GDP, weak military, substandard healthcare, gun control, welfare, and all the other trappings of failed leftist thought.

The rest of the world has no consensus on who caused 9-11. The world has a consensus on who should be America’s next President.

If the Europeans want to effect our elections they should do it the American way-Use the CIA.

No seriously, the left only cuts and pastes the aspects of European life they want to impose by the courts. Namely permissiveness in all things that are currently not accepted by the majority in our democracy. Instead of convincing us of the correctness of their ideas they try to overwhelm us with the media and the courts. International courts and European tastes should have no influence in a democracy. Unless that is the will of the people.

I lived in Frankfurt for three years and have a little insight as to what they would like in a U.S. President. Capitulation and protection at the same time.
