America is just as doomed

Reader comment on item: Europe is Finished, Predicts Mark Steyn

Submitted by Noah Wilk (United States), Nov 14, 2006 at 22:40

Unfortunately, America is just as doomed as Europe unless our society has an epiphany and comes to its senses regarding the degradation of the country. Americans for the most part have lost their roots, their patriotism, their common sense. Our kids are put not through school, but rather through an indoctrination process where they are taught to be ashamed of American culture and to consider all other cultures equal to ours. Hence, our children (our future!) grow up brainwashed that a society that oppresses women, tortures non-believers, and supresses freedom is morally equivalent to America culture.

Americans don't care, as long as nothing interferes with their ability to sit the fat backsides on their comfy couches and watch DVDs on their widescreen plasma tv sets.

Where is the outrage over the massive migration of illegal aliens who are turning America into a second Mexico? We saw millions of alien criminals marching on our streets demanding rights, and we saw virtually no Americans taking to the streets to protest. In the WWII era, there would have been a backlash of millions of Americans storming Washington DC to protest this illegal invasion. Today, there's virtually no reaction.

Americans seem to have lost interest in their own futures, in the future of their country, in their childrens' futures. Any society that does not defend its cultural identity and its borders is doomed to be taken over. It'll be an easy victory for Islam because America is dying from within from a condition called apathy. No one cares anymore. No one seems to understand the urgency of closing the borders and throwing out the illegal aliens who are ruining the country, or the Muslims who are preaching hatred against us on our own land, or the growing threats of Islam, China, and Iran.

We're also hypnotized by the two-party system and can't seem to elect a real American party like the Constitution Party. People are helplessly addicted to the Democrats and Republicans. They're afraid of change, even if that change is for the better. I know more people who can name all the members of the tv show Survivor, but who cannot name our Secretary of Defense or even the Vice President! We have a tv culture that is so disconnected from reality that we've ceased dealing with reality as a culture.

Europe will fall first, but America is also doomed short of the aforementioned epiphany.
