The Distorted US ‘Right Wing’ View of Europe’s Situation
by Organon tou Ontos
I recently read Coulter’s answers to a series of questions put to her by Voice of Europe. Her responses reflect assumptions that are taken for granted by the Trump administration and the entire ‘right wing’ complex in the US. The root of Europe’s problems is the continued US occupation and the structures, ideals, and institutions that it props up.
Suicidal madness imposed on the good people of Europe by their idiot leaders. It’s not really “migration” at all, which is something that happens naturally. What you’re experiencing is a specific, evil government policy to destroy your countries.
The leaders that have implemented these policies are waste products of a system that are made possible by the continued US occupation of Europe. The instabilities generated by US policy in the Middle East, and elsewhere, become a liability for Europeans because 1) their countries are satellites of the US, 2) their leaders are pressured to buffer the effects of US policy by absorbing the fallout of the latter, and 3) nativist forces that strive to deflect fallout, including mass immigration, are stymied by structures put in place since World War II. This includes EU legislation and US influence designed to undermine ethnic identity.
Many of the “idiot leaders” Coulter refers to have been in place since Bush’s administration, such as Merkel, or even longer, such as Soros. These figures owe their influence to a US presence and to structures held up by the US, including the EU and NATO.
Asked why “the left is so powerful” in the “Western world,” Coulter responded:
I think the media.
The “leftist” media in Europe are so powerful because European nations are satellites of the US, and the US protects and promotes the interests driving the media. This includes vested interests, including Jews, working to weaken immigration policy and promote immigration to Europe from nations destabilized by US-Israeli policies in the Middle East. It is not simply “left” in origin. “Right wing” US politicians, such as McCain, promote multiculturalism and advocate wars creating conditions for mass immigration. Jewish groups or figures in Europe and the US, such as the ADL, are only possible because of decades-old US policies.
Native Europeans seeking to reverse or halt the policies of their “idiot leaders” are stymied by the enormous weight of US influence and its military presence in Europe. They confront mechanisms that are part of structures intended to preserve US hegemony.
Asked what she thought Trump’s impact and legacy might be in Europe:
I hope he provides aid and inspiration to the former communist bloc nations, which seem to be the only ones not anxious to give their countries away (again). For the rest, I hope that, when Trump finally keeps his campaign promise to place a moratorium on all immigration, he makes an exception for real refugees: Western Europeans who mourn the loss of their countries on account of their monstrous leaders.
The historical and contemporary reality of the US occupation of Europe and its support for structures and institutions that constrain Europeans is what is ultimately at issue.
The Cold War was the illegitimate offspring of an unnecessary and avoidable World War II. Hitler made repeated attempts to create an Anglo-German alliance and later efforts to make peace with Britain. It is responsible for Europe’s decline. First, Europe’s Empires imploded, a consequence of a convergence of US and Soviet foreign policies that were both opposed to European imperialism and colonialism. Second, the concomitant ethnic implosion of these nations, as immigration policy was structured to allow for mass immigration from their former colonial subjects and other nations. Lastly, a filtering into European identity of Soviet and US ideology, with man as an economic instead of an historical and biological entity.
More immediately, the volatility of US democracy and its ever changing electorate entails that Europeans can never rely on consistent US support for their racial, ethnic, and national identity and preservation. One administration challenges Europeans to welcome migrants while using US influence to successfully push for mass immigration to Europe, and the next administration castigates the previous one and urges Europeans to assert inviolate borders. Trump’s policies toward the beneficiaries of Obama’s policies (such as the DREAM Act) demonstrates how prior policies can quickly be reversed. And nothing will prevent the US electorate from installing a monstrosity that will perpetuate this schizophrenia.
A genuinely constructive role for the US in Europe’s future must start with acknowledging the consequences of US occupation over the course of seventy years. The goal must be to remove foreign elements from European nations, restore mechanisms to make the political, military, and economic structures of European nations viable, and direct a gradual removal of NATO and US forces toward the overarching goal of European autonomy.
Trump’s speech in Poland, last year, appealed to “the West” to reclaim a will to “defend our civilization.” But if you look carefully at the claims in his speech, it is based on appeals to the fact of World War II, references to the Holocaust, and very specific postwar configurations of power and relations. In other words, a very specific vision of “the West” is being propagated by the US right. It is a US-led, NATO-defended order, defined by Anglo-American views of democracy and civil liberties. Trump’s impetus to Europeans to reassert a will to life is not grounded in race, ethnicity, or even nation; not fundamentally. These are, to the US right, acceptable only to the degree that they sustain an American view of the West.
This view assumes the centrality of World War II as a good and righteous war that had to be fought, whose victors now enjoy hard-earned leadership roles, and in which any resurgence of German assertiveness must be checked, so-called “international law” must be upheld, and the sacrosanct place of the Holocaust as a moral substratum underlying political policy is cherished. This vision of the West takes values, ideals, and freedoms to be as constitutive of Europeans, if not more so, than blood, bones, and soil. Coulter, Trump, and others in the US right assume all or most of this, which distorts their views of solutions to the situation in Europe because they take for granted the structures that are destroying Europe.
