Leading The Way
One of the reasons why I follow US things so closely is that I deeply believe that the United States are the laboratory for what happens, later, in Europe and the rest of the West.
I have seen it happening with Reagan, and before my time it had been clearly happening with the “Summer of Love” and all that crap. For good or worse, Western Countries look at the US and absorb its habits.
I see this now happening again. Donald Trump’s victory, a truly historic moment way surpassing even Brexit (though undoubtedly helped by it, in the same way as Reagan’s election was anticipated by Margaret Thatcher’s victory in the UK), and the absolutely astonishing performance the man has delivered up to now, are now clearly showing the way to Europe, and Trumpism is now rapidly conquering the hearts and minds of previously solidly pro-EU Europeans.
Italy is the last example. No, wait: Slovenia is the last one! In Sweden, elections looms. Even the Germans have started to awaken!
What is happening is that your average Mario Colombo sees Trump saying it like it is, and likes the new freedom of being, at last, sensible. Gone is the feeling that if you are outside of the grace of the good boys’ in Brussels you are a dangerous, untrustworthy, heartless “fascist”, “egoist”, “isolationist”, or any other unsavoury adjective ending with “ist”. People just have had enough, and they see that you can say exactly that and become… the President of the United States.
The US are a cultural incubator for the rest of the West. It worked the wrong way in the years of Obama, which gave us an unprecedented wave of institutionalised perversion and political correctness; and it is working the other way now, when being pro-life, pro-wholesomeness and pro-sanity is rapidly showing as not only the healthy, but the winning way.
This is why I think that it is so vital that Trump not only is reelected in 2020 (if he is in good health, I have little doubt about that already; actually, I think that his eventual opponent is on a suicide mission waiting to happen), but has enough votes in the Senate to keep pushing excellent judicial appointments through it.
Look at what has happened only two days ago with Sanity vs Sodomy. Imagine the overturning of Roe vs Wade. If that happens – and, thanks be to God, we now are not so terribly far away from it – wait ten years and watch the entire European Continent waking up to the reality of this most atrocious yearly Holocaust.
Trump is giving sanity to the entire world. Like Reagan, he is awakening us from a slumber of stupidity and conformism, and teaching us to be thinking men and women again. We see this new awakening in many parts of Europe, with Italy the biggest manifestation up to now. Deo volente, this will, in time, bear more and more fruits.
Thank you, Lord, for Donald John Trump. Please keep giving him faith, wisdom and health.
We need him for old Europe, too.
