I am stunned by the widespread sense of shame and guilt for anything America does or might do vis-à-vis other nations.
A barbaric regime in Tehran may not be pleased we executed Soleimani.
A disturbed, delusional dictator in North Korea might take offense.
Two panty-waist leaders of Canada and France might be laughing at us.
I wonder why there is no curiosity, anywhere, as to why no one in those countries worry about what we might think or take offense to.
And further — worse — the anti-American Americans in America are never insulted by what those other countries do to our people, our interests and our plans.
It is as if America is the only evil nation on earth and must always be on point to not insult another nation regardless of how cruel or disturbed they are.
An open letter to anti-American foreign leaders and anti-American residents of America, maybe start thinking through your policies and statements so as not to offend me, my friends and fellow patriots. You know, a two-way street for a start. America matters too.
And far from being evil, at our absolute historic worst, we were and continue to be morally head and shoulders above almost every other nation-state that ever existed on planet Earth. We are the last country that needs to fret, stammer, gulp and beg forgiveness.
When Iran stops hanging gays, when China stops slaughtering Uyghurs, when France clenches a fist to defend herself, when Germany’s streets are safe again, when Africa bans slavery, when Muslims stop throwing acid on women, then offer advice or criticism.
Until then, be more like America — yes, even America under Donald Trump — because you have a long way to go to reach our international standards.
