The Politics of Revenge
Title: Cautious joy as blacks imagine Obama win
Obama's potential victory represents a previously unimaginable triumph over centuries of racism. But beneath the hope and pride lies fear: of polling inaccuracy, voting chicanery, or the type of injustice and violence that have historically stymied African-American progress.
Blacks experience joy, and that implies that -- well, there's always a demographic majority, and if you are from that majority but have failed at it, you hate that majority and try to destroy it. One of your weapons is legalizing destructive behavior. Another is importing people to replace the majority.
These are just some of the many reasons why multiculturalism always fails, and always precedes the collapse of empires. They begin collapsing when their anti-majority types start parasitizing and eating away at their core, and then when the newcomers arrive, there's no common ground and they disintegrate into internal bickering.
Which this article shows us in process.
Title: Europe has a long wait for its Obama
Not only are droves of Europeans hoping for a victory by the U.S. Democratic presidential candidate, many are asking when France, Germany or Britain will get a chance to cast a ballot for a leader from their own burgeoning minorities.
Discrimination is only one reason that citizens of immigrant origin are unlikely to soon produce a leader able to crack the system. Another is that the Old World is relatively new to the issue of minorities of color.
"Obama hasn't happened overnight," said Danny Sriskandarajah of the Institute for Public Policy Research in Britain. "It took generations of minority activism in the U.S. to create this space and develop that sort of political acumen ... which is largely absent from Europe."
Wow, we can all get along... too bad it's at the expense of Europe's native culture, and resentments continue to fester.
Let's make sure everyone is suffering just as our dying empire is, and then we won't feel so alone as we sail off into the sunset marked NOBODY CARES.
