The thing is, in the 1970s, those seeking positions of power were the ones the Europeans generally agreed with. Then, the Euros wanted the voices of dissent and leftism in the US. Now, the leftists are in charge in the US and the Euros want the calls for change silenced since it is opposed to their way of thinking. In other words, the Euros only cheered America when they felt their ideas were the way America should move to.
...and I don’t remember Europeans being pro-America in the 1970s! I lived in London briefly during that period and they hated our guts.
Also, during the '70s, the Soviet Union was a threat to Europe, and the Europeans courted the Americans for their defense. When the United States was victorious over the Soviets and the Cold War came to an end, the Europeans not only had no reason to like the Americans, since the Russians were no longer a threat, but they had good reason to dislike the Americans inasmuch as Euroepans were blinded by envy, resentment, and other manifestations of evil.
The greatest evil plaguing both Europe and America today is mendacity, and it is the basic evil responsible for the decadence that, if not stopped and reversed, is going to destroy Europe, America, and Western Civilization.
Leftists will welcome this destruction--because they are basically stupid. That which will replace it will please only the malicious. The benevolent stupid are in for a very unpleasant surprise.
