Euro-trash being euro-trash. I recently got a note from a Danish-eunuch that I had the misfortune to be acquainted with in the past. He was whining about how America didn’t appreciate the pResident in the White House. He said all of Europe thought 0bami was so much better than President Bush and was making America respected again by Euros and the rest of the world. He also believes that the Euro will save Europe. Rule by Euro-crats in Brussels is much better than any national bureaucracy. And, 0bama keeps pet unicorns at the White House.
interesting observation. we were stuck only getting over the air TV for a month and the channels consisted of various Asian news channels (which I found entertaining)and a few European channels that were actually disturbing. Their media projects a US that is not based in reality. We were laughing watching RT (Russian Television in english) and they were decrying the lack of personal freedoms in the US. A Putin controlled media was discussing the lack of freedoms in the US.. infriggincredible. They had as “journalists” the likes of Ted Rall, a hideous female blogger with hygiene problems and Adam Kokesh and every America hating leftist in need of a few bucks. Rall and Kokesh would have had a Polonium enema a long time ago in Putin’s Russia but they go on Russian TV to complain about the lack of freedom in the US. Whenever that Kokesh guy and Ted Rall pull a stunt, they never present him as someone on Putin’s payroll just a “activist”..
There was never a neutral or pro-America view presented, even on the Asian stations where Americans were shown as dunces and foils to the superior Asians. The German, French and British stations were a little less brutal but very distorted nonetheless.
If this is what they see, it’s no wonder they have a distorted perspective of reality.
