Chelsea Clinton brings up the tired A&H accusation that the rest of the world is opposed to us because we wouldn’t sign the Kyoto protocol; Alice Walker thinks Barack will negotiate more freely with foreign leaders because all the racial baggage against America will be banished; European elites think the world hates us because of McDonald’s, Canadians blame it on our ignoring others, Muslim extremists believe it is because we are decadent, the UN because we don’t listen to the UN enough, and the sons of third-world kleptocrats believe America is disliked because it exploits poorer nations.
Everyone is quite sure that their reason for being angry at America must be what everyone else’s reason is also. It’s an amazing display of narcissism and inability to understand others. Do these folks actually think China gives a rat's patooie about Kyoto, or Poland about our racial history? I don't recall any anti-McDonald's statements coming from Osama, and half of Africa is angry that we do listen to the UN.
