The Lesson of Bawer You can't Escape Yourself

There is a lesson in Bawer's book for American liberals who claim to speak of Europe as more enlightened. Bawer is a gay American tired of Falwell and decides to go off to enlightened Amsterdam. Not after he is there he isacosted by a Muslim punk who attempts to rob him.

Bawer moves to Norway and his patrner is attacked by a jihadi. Bawer's partner beats up the punk. His partner finds the perpetrator has allready at the police station claiming that Bawer's partner tried to kill him.

Bawer finds out something most NYC types are well aware of, Europeans are rude. One of the reasons I am somewhat popular with the locals in VT is my respect for the local culture. Hunting, Fishing and Smelly Dairy farms were part of the lifestyle long before I arrived. I wouldn't want VT to turn into Soho North and it should retain its local culture minus the alcoholics who fall off curbs everywhere. I do not comment on local politics even when asked except to say Bernie Sanders is a national disgrace.

I am a good guest in that I visit and never would dream of lecturing the people I visit about their political leaders. I can envision my first trip to London. This would be a great city if you could get rid of the Communist Anti- Semitic mayor. Or I could visit France and lecture them about Chirac. This sort of behavior is rude and impolite. I remind European visitors you are a guest in my country so have some manners. Then the lecture comes about how American's do no travel. Excuse me the distance when I take a trip to Chicago is further than London to Zurich. Moreover, as a NYC resident I have had a more diverse exposure to culture than Euros ever experience. My coworkers and friends look like the UN General assembly.

Bawer talks about the elitist nostalgia for Communism. He notes that amongst the handful of books translated into Sweedish are tracts by Commies Chomsky and Finky the anti-semite. There is less media diversity in Europe than in the USA with the exception of the UK as it has some alternative perspectives.

Bawer like many people think by moving to another locale he will find less bigotry. The truth is you will find bigotry wherever you go. The most bigoted people on the planet are far left types. Sonia writes an anti-Castro post. Invariably the vermin will spring forth attempting to compare Bush to Castro. Bawer describes the Fidel haiographies in Europe that forget to mention repression, genuine torture and political prisoners. Europe is not Valhalla or more enlightened and it has failed to integrate its immigrants.

"The handful of books translated into Swedish".

What an astonishingly stupid statement. Do you ever get tired of being shallow, Beak. Not to mention ignorant and misinformed?

Like most Americans, most Europeans do not travel...at least trans-Atlantic. Those that do, I have found are not nearly as friendly as those that don't. When I was in Europe in the early 90's, by far most Europeans were extremely gracious and friendly (maybe not the French as much). We went into recently freed East and Central European countries and were very well treated.
Maybe it was because of the times. It was my only trip into Europe and quite possibly, much has changed.

Ducky Page 117 Bawer quotes Michael Monihan an American writer living in Sweeden with the following list of authors translated into Sweedish after 9-11. Michael Moore communist idiot 4 titles. Noam Chomsky Communist anti-semite 3 titles. Norman Finkola Rabid Communist anti semite 1 title the Holocaust Industry a book compared by the NYT review of books to the Protocols of the Elders of Zion.
John Pilger Commie, Eric Hobswam Commie, Tariq Ali Jihadi and Naomi Klien useful idiot.

If you have a problem take it up with Bawer or the author. Maybe we should think about fascism in Sweeden or refer to it as a brain dead zone. All these countries are colapsing. Moreover Bawer is reporting what he sees first hand.
Zinla, the Editrix and others see the problems you ignore.

Tell the duck to talk to the cook if he doesn't like what's on the menu.

Mr. Ducky said...

Michael Moynihan? I think he ran a fascist blog for a while. Anyway I'm sure he's an expert, he was on the blogosphere.

So left wing books have been translated into Swedish. Big freakin' deal. Is that the entirety of translations?

Is Michael "Dumb Ass" Moynihan in publishing? What are his credentials? Other than being some right wing jujyfruit who can sucker the Beak at any time?

beakerkin said...

Lets see the Duck has zero idea of what Monihans views are. Bawer is reporting his first hand account of European intellectual rot with regards to Communism and anti-semitism.

The near universal communist viewpoints of those authors is proof enough Monihan who lived in Sweeden is reporting what he saw. Maybe we should add Sweeden into a new category of emerging Communist totalitarian thugocracies.

Open balots and harassment of those who disagree with Sweedish elite Socialist idiocy has been reported elsewhere. Maybe we will ship you to Sweeden instead of North Korea.

Beak,
Have you seen this essay by Dr. Tawfik Hamid. Excerpt:

Progressives need to realize that radical Islam is based on an antiliberal system. They need to awaken to the inhumane policies and practices of Islamists around the world. They need to realize that Islamism spells the death of liberal values. And they must not take for granted the respect for human rights and dignity that we experience in America, and indeed, the West, today.

Seems to go along with some of what Bawer's book has to say.

beakerkin said...

AOW

I am more firmly convinced that the far left's embrace of Islam has more to do with its traditional anti-semitism. There is zero excuse for harassment of Jews in Europe or elsewhere based upon events in Israel. People like the Duck imagine a myriad of people harrassing Muslims and it is fiction.

Muslims are far more apt to commit a hate crime than be a victim of it.

The Duck also pretends that nobody is a commie. Progressive is a polite way of saying Commie dolt and Green is merely window dressing for commie dolt.

Always On Watch Two said...

Beak,
I certainly agree with your final sentence:

Progressive is a polite way of saying Commie dolt and Green is merely window dressing for commie dolt.

The Merry Widow said...

Well, I see commies and watermelons(green on the outside, red or yellow on the inside)as officious busybodies. They have nothing in their own lives to recommend them, so they want to boss around those of us who actually HAVE something to do!
Good morning, G*D bless and Maranatha!

Yellow watermellon is a running joke in town. People in town think I made it up or purchased it in Chernobyl farms.

The Merry Widow said...

I can go to my local grocery store and buy one in season, they are sweeter than the red.
You need to get one and carry back to VT and let them try it!

One thing that riles me about Livingstone is that he was the leader of teh Greater London Coucil in the early 80s - he got the position by ousting the previous leader of the Labour group,

Unfortunately Thatcher abolished the GLC in 1986, leaving London without a strategic authority. This act helped create the myth of Livingstone the martyr. I don't like him. There are other persons I would rather see as Mayor of London.

The most ironic moment will be when the Islamic hordes rampage through the streets of Europe in their death-victory dance, destroying all of the kuffir past. At that moment, the feminized left will be shocked, and complain that someone should stop them. Perhaps in that time we will turn to them and say, "But this is the local culture now. Vive le diversity!"
