The more or less mythical hero of the left was no longer the proletarian but the marginal, the migrant, the foreigner, the dissident, or the rebel – even if he happened to be a religious fanatic that no leftist intellectual would have anything to do with. One recalls how Jean-Jacques Rousseau made fun of those who pretend to love the Tartars in order to avoid loving their neighbors.
Mr. Bricmont's observation is right on the money and he shines a bright light on Merkel's, Sarkozy's, Hollande's, Blair's, Cameron's, and Löfven's vicious elevation of the savage over their own people. This worship of the foreigner by the ruling elites is one of the most astonishing features of the declining Western world. Suddenly switching to a diet of potting soil is on a par with the madness of this new governing ideology.
As I write this the ReligionofPeace.com counter shows that there have been 29,747 victims of Muslim terror since 9/11. Only 253 to go till it's an even 30,000 and who doesn't have confidence that the lads will surpass that mark and soar to new heights. But it was Hillary's desire to ramp up Muslim immigration to the U.S. and any American Democrat politician worth his or her salt demands that the full mantle of constitutional protections and all possible welfare benefits be showered on these emissaries of a repulsive culture. Who hate us.
I have to admit that citing an article from Counterpunch is to venture into unfamiliar territory. When someone states an glaring truth, however, you gotta go with the honest commentator.
 "Trump’s Victory: Arrogance Defeated." By Jean Bricmont, Counterpunch, 11/11/16.
