Europe is indeed showing us the way…leading by example.
We can now in all its glory observe the full effects of unfettered immigration, open borders, the embrace of multi-culturalism, the failure to assimilate immigrants, and a welfare state.
It’s what liberals here in the US would like to see America become.
But back in the days, 2000, and 2004 to be precise, remember all those liberals and Hollywood types who threatened (promised??) to move to Europe if Bush was elected.
Alec Baldwin, Kim Bassinger, Tina Fey, ( I think Tina said she was going to Canada) Barbra Streisand, Robert Altman, Sean Penn, Lynn Redgrave, Cher, and Pierre Salinger among others all vowed at one time to decamp in the event that Bush won.
Which gave many of us even more of a reason to support W.
Well, Bush won, twice, as you all know, but nary a one of those who promised to flee did in fact depart.
Is it possible they all had a glimpse of the future of Europe, and didn’t like what it foretold?
