"The canary in the Euro Zone coal mine has tipped over. This is a warning sign for the freedom loving people of North America. Right now, we are frogs in slowly boiling water. Soon, it will be too late for us. Wake up America."
We started losing Europe not that long after World War II was over. Part of it is understandable. Europe, as whole, is just plain war weary. Enough already. I suppose it is easy for us to criticize being isolated by two big oceans and all. But to have an enemy right at your border? We have not had that for centuries.
What was the first warning sign for Europe? The churches. Large, beautiful, and ornate churches became more and more empty on Sunday mornings. Why? Hard to say. Maybe the new youth, the cultural elite, the Bohemians, had no time for their parents religion. I mean, what is in a religion, anyway? After all, most is just mumbo jumbo. So the youth dropped out en masse. That was not happening in America - yet. Little did the Yanks know that was soon to be coming to their landscape.
Then came the isolationism. Draw inward from the world. Sure, we were able to muster up some support for Desert Storm and the War on Terror. But the new posture was to let the United States or the feckless United Nations deal with the world's problems. The fact so many Euro countries were members of NATO in name only, should have been no surprise to anyone. It took someone like Donald Trump to call them out on their poop. Pay your dues. Pay what you promised. That being said, many countries in Europe can muster barely more than a self defense force. Period.
When the Middle East started to fall apart under the tyranny and terror of ISIS, Europe became a mecca for refugees and immigrants. With no controls or vetting, they let anyone and everyone in. Some good, some very bad. Soon the lifeboats became overloaded, and the citizens were asked to do more. And more. And more. By the time the citizens woke up, Sharia Law started creeping into their nation's fiber.
How bad is it right now? France is now 10% Muslim, projected to be 15% by 2030. Germany is slightly less than 6% Muslim, but 10% of all newborns are born to Muslim parents. England has 5% Muslim. The Mayor of London is Muslim. This country of Anglican heritage, now has almost 2,000 mosques.
The globalists would look at this trend with great glee. Gosh, look at our diversity! We are so very cosmopolitan. The realists however, look at what is happening with alarm. The riots in France are just a harbinger of bad things yet to come. Yes, the carbon tax on gasoline was a big part of it. However, there are many French who want their country back. So do the Swedes. The British. The Dutch. And the list goes on.
