I remember many conversations with Europeans over crime in America and the treatment of Blacks. The Euros would get on theirhigh horse about America being aviolent culture. Then the lecture would continue about what Black people deserve due their history.
Europe is having a crime wave largely fueled by Muskim immigrants. It seems that patting someone on the head and handing a welfare check doesn't work. High taxes and endless rules reduce job growth. Employed people tend not to riot and are less apt to commit violent crimes.
The American far left rails about welfare when the topic of Israel is mentioned. It fails to mention that expenditures on NATO were many times larger. The left also fails to grasp that the US taxpayer payed for the Eurosocialist wonderland that is teetering on the edge of ruin. The United States bore the expense of NATO and now it is time to disband the agreement. The Europeans should pay for their own defense.
The dream of the arrogant Euros was they would follow and improve the American immigration policy. However, they made several mistakes along the way due to entrenched leftist idiocy. Immigration worked when immigrants were expected to work and respect thelocal customs. The idea works as long the immigrants work and are not part of a violent Jim Crow culture that has never respected any other culture.
Now in the UK there are stories about crime in London that would seem familiar to Americans. The problem starts with a violent underclass and endless welfare checks.
Terrorism and poverty are not linked as the London bombers all had jobs. However, the same could not be said about the French Intifada. The notion of easing the restrictions on job creation has not occured to the Euros. They will opt for another failed leftist remedy affirmative action.
The notion of Americans as more violent than Europeans is quite amusing. Will the culture that produced Communism, Nazism and endless warfare stand up? Will the culture whose longest period of peace was created by American medling stand up?
The question of who is more violent and arrogant is obvious.
