The snobbish British Ambassador to the United States is not a Trump fan. And that’s putting it mildly.
“Sir Kim Darroch [known to some as Sir Douche of Bag], one of Britain’s top diplomats, used secret cables and briefing notes to impugn Trump’s character, warning London that the White House was ‘uniquely dysfunctional’ and that the President’s career could end in ‘disgrace’,” writes the Daily Mail.
Evolved globalists have always had a problem with any President who wishes to put America first, and they especially hate Trump for actually stating it and setting out to accomplish it. This, in domestic and international political circles, is just not done. Nuance and platitudes are the accomplishments of diplomats – not actually getting things done. And certainly not to benefit the United States.
It’s as if Trump doesn’t understand America’s place in the global community hierarchy. We are supposed to sit quietly in the corner and let the smart people run things. Oh, but we’re expected to pay for everything, just for the privilege of breathing the same rarified air.
“In a memo sent after the visit, Sir Kim warned that while Trump and his team had been ‘dazzled’ by the visit, and the UK might be ‘flavour of the month’, Trump’s White House remained self-interested: ‘This is still the land of America First’,” adds the Daily Mail.
The entire highly evolved European community of snobs, not just Ambassador Darroch, has been suffering the vapors from the moment Trump came on the seen and declared he wished to “Make America Great Again.”
Now some Trump supporters will refute the spastic claims by these global community organizers by merely insisting that these countries should not look down or belittle such a wish by Trump to put America first and “Make America Great Again.” Why wouldn’t they want to instead join Trump and make their own countries great again?
While this appears to be a laudable and completely reasonable sentiment and request of other nations, particularly the snobbish Europeans, I disagree vigorously.
Several U.S. Presidents have used a line falsely attributed to French philosopher, Alexis de Tocqueville: “America is great because she is good…”
Regardless of attribution, it is as true today as it was when President Eisenhower first used it.
Looking back in history, and using the “great and good” quote as a guide, it’s easy to conclude that no other nation on this planet has ever been both. America stands alone.
Some will point to our dark days of slavery, neglecting to point out that every other “great” nation, on every continent, did the same.
Egypt, Rome and the Mongol empire were all great, but hardly what one would consider good.
Germany had times of greatness. Do we want them to pursue that again? Great Britain, Spain, France, Portugal, the Dutch, etc., have all been great and dominant world powers, forcibly conquering and colonizing every corner of the globe.
We are the only “great” nation that has rejected colonialism.
Soviet Russia and Imperial Japan were once great nations, but doubtful we want a repeat of their “greatness.”
Communist China is becoming a great and dominant nation, yet hardly good, as they are busy colonizing the Pacific, bullying their neighbors and flexing their relatively new military muscles.
The bottom line is that the United States is unique in all of history – the only nation in history that can lay claim to being simultaneously great and good. Given this, why wouldn’t we want to put America first and make it Great Again?
