Skip to comments.Cheese-eating surrender monkeys: Anger grows at Europeans' muted reaction to UBL killing
Posted on 05/05/2011 11:37:16 AM PDT by presidio9
American bloggers have hit back at Europeans who have criticised the outpouring of joy over the death of Osama Bin Laden. While thousands of U.S citizens took to the streets to celebrate the killing, the reaction in Europe was far more muted. And some are so angered by what they see as a judgmental stance from across The Pond, they have gone online to hit back at the 'cheese-eating surrender monkeys'. Many in Europe have questioned not only the manner of the killing of an unarmed man, but also the taste and dignity of the American public who chanted 'USA' in the streets. Expressing these sentiments is Britain's Archbishop of Canterbury who said: 'I think the killing of an unarmed man is always going to leave a very uncomfortable feeling because it doesn't look as if justice is seen to be done.' However, he went on: 'But I do believe that in such circumstances when we are faced with someone who was manifestly a war criminal in terms of the atrocities inflicted it is important that justice is seen to be served.' When Bin Laden's men flew airliners into New York's World Trade Center 10 years ago, it sparked an outpouring of solidarity from Europe, best captured by a French newspaper headline 'We are all Americans now'. But that solidarity seemingly hasn't

The class thing to do would have been to scrape him off our shoes with quiet dignity, look straight into the camera lens and say “who's next”
Instead we have kids playing in the streets.
Most of them WERE kids when the towers were hit, so OBL was always a childhood monster- I have no idea what that feels like, so maybe I am seeing it wrong.
FWIW, I think most of those “thousands” of US citizens who were out celebrating outside the White House were Obama supporters, called out to celebrate their Dear Leader.
OTOH, I agree with the Cheese-eating Surrender Monkey bit.
Now, let’s get out of Libya and stop helping the Muslim terrorists take over Africa.
But we didnt Waterboard him. That counts for nothing? How about our CandC Obama getting a peace prize? No points for that either?
In France you only march for more government freebees,
“land burning communists.”
:) Please explain WTH that means?
The street celebrations were mostly Obama-bots cheering for their Dear Leader.
Cry me a river Euro wussies! The Muslims are about to take over the major capitals of Europe and your “best and brightest” intelligensia still persist in their love affair with huge numbers of Muslim immigrants. Euros — prepare to convert to Islam, die, or be enslaved by your new Muslim masters.
Unarmed man? So are the surrender monkies suggesting that we cut off his arms before we shot him in his face?
‘Cuz, if so, then great!
It started with the President himself coming on at 11:30 pm to make the announcement.
Obama wants maximum PR from this event, but his actions are raising up the status of UBL and Al Qaeda and lowering that of the President.
the announcement should have been made by mid-level Pentagon people, not a President in the middle of the night. Proof of the raid, and UBL’s body, should have been made public immediately. Body should even have been shown to some journalists. Then simply dispose of the body respectfully, without the nonsense kowtowing to PC fake-muslim sensibilities.
focus on the military aspects, keep the politics and PC’ness out of it.
The president could then comment 1-2 days later.
But Obama is a narcissist and a PR-whore, so he will use the Presidency for that purpose instead.
Sort of like FDR or LBJ for previous generations.<\
Am I the only person who couldn’t possibly care less what most people in Europe think, say, or do?
Are white Christian American conservatives even ALLOWED to be angry?
After all, haven’t we used the downtrodden rest of the world as our footstool?
Yeah, I didn’t tramp through the streets shouting “USA” or anything...
I just went down to the local bar and ordered up a “Bin Laden” - two shots and a splash of water.
We are in 100% agreement. I said the same thing, nearly identical, in some other places. Likewise, I noticed that a lot of those celebrating in DC were college kids. At 1st, I was thinking that they were just looking for an excuse to party. But then, like your realization, I though about the fact that OBL was truly a scary monster, as they were 8-11 years old when the WTC was destroyed. And they saw it in full color on every station for a week straight.
Realistically, people simply react in different ways.
Which is exactly what George Bush would have done IMO (and which is why he's not attending the Ground Zero thing).
I agree...this reaction is now all cheap emotion and I can see why the Europeans are a bit disdainful.
As a Christian I did not rejoice at Bin Laden’s death; however, as a Christian and an American I did rejoice that he was no longer able to perpetrate his brand of evil.
Hell, don’t due them justice. Half may not even know who O is, or thinks he is. They’re always up for some hell-raisin’. Like, SPRING BREAK - extended.....
I love this. The more Euros dislike us, we know we are on the right track.
