Trump’s non-apology tour

by Sam Rolley

President Donald Trump was in Poland Thursday, where he promised to use his power in the White House to defend Western values from terror and extremist attacks. In a speech that would never have come from the previous administration, Trump said “the fundamental question of our time is whether the West has the will to survive.” Media detractors at home criticized Trump’s remarks. But the audience in Poland cheered, signaling that the world wants an American ally that wishes to retain its national identity.

Despite what you hear from the U.S. mainstream media, it makes perfect sense that President Trump would feel the love from European conservatives. After all, they’ve watched for years as people in places of high political power pushed “multiculturalism,” filling cities with thousands of newcomers with nothing but contempt for their society and traditions and no intention of working to gain a better understanding of what makes the countries good places to live.

The multiculturalist agenda has but one goal: To do away with anything resembling majority-driven societal norms.

Poland has watched its Western European neighbors embrace multiculturalism with full force– and many of its leaders, like Trump, are unafraid to point out the negative consequences they believe countries throughout the region are now dealing with because of the policy.  The country is learning from the mistakes of others.

Back in 2015, the Polish Civic Platform government led by Donald Tusk– a Europe before Poland type– agreed to accept 4,500 to 5,000 asylum seekers arriving in Europe from terror strongholds in the Middle East. But as the tension brought on by the inability of many Middle Eastern asylum seekers to accept European norms increased– along with rapes, assaults, violent protests, petty crimes, and homicidal terror plots– throughout the western part of the continent, many Poles voiced concerns about the plan to take in more refugees.

Today, Poland’s newly conservative Law and Justice government is rejecting the push toward multiculturalism with hefty populist support. According to one poll in the country, about 70 percent of Poles support government policies refusing refugee status to non-European migrants.

“The policy of multiculturalism in Western Europe is bringing about a bloody harvest in the form of terrorist attacks,” Polish Interior Minister Mariusz Błaszczak said during an interview back in April.

Vowing that the country’s current government won’t tolerate the sort of mayhem currently affecting Germany, France, Britain, Sweden and other European asylum destinations, Błaszczak added: “Our predecessors, agreeing to receive thousands of refugees – and de facto immigrants from the Middle East, and northern Africa – were striving to bring about such a crisis.”

Make no mistake, President Trump’s team was well aware of all of this before he gave his speech on the dangers facing Western values.

“Do we have the confidence in our values to defend them at any cost? Do we have enough respect for our citizens to protect our borders? Do we have the desire and the courage to preserve our civilization in the face of those who would subvert and destroy it?” Trump asked the Polish crowd.

The U.S. mainstream media, of course, didn’t see a proud American president refusing to apologize for Western values. According to the day’s headlines, they witnessed Trump handing “a victory to Polish nationalists” and affirming “the Polish government’s assault on democracy.”  The bleeding face liberals at MSNBC, meanwhile, criticized Trump for commenting in another country on the intelligence and media establishments that have worked against him since before his first day in the White Housel.

“I am certain that his foreign policy team didn’t prepare him that way,” Morning Joe’s Mika Brzezinski said.

Host Joe Scarborough added: “For a sitting president of the United States, really, to be on foreign soil — you can’t really underline this enough — and attack America’s intel community, on foreign soil, and attack America’s free press on foreign soil… to attack American institutions two days after the fourth of July on foreign soil, the day before we meet America’s chief adversary, is nothing short of disgusting.”

Scarborough, Brzezinski and their MSM peers are all missing a very important point. Just like average Poles aren’t interested in plans foisted by an elitist establishment to open their doors to foreign immigrants unwilling to assimilate, average Americans aren’t all that interested in the MSM elites’ take on Trump’s comments or the intelligence community’s still unproven rumors that he somehow colluded with Russia.

We know the sort of thing coastal elites would like to hear the sitting president say.

Something like: “I would like to think that with my election and the early decisions that we’ve made, that you’re starting to see some restoration of America’s standing in the world. And although, as you know, I always mistrust polls, international polls seem to indicate that you’re seeing people more hopeful about America’s leadership.”

Whatever he wished to think, President Barack Obama’s statement at the 2009 G-20 Summit certainly didn’t materialize in the real world. In fact, despite (or, more likely, thanks to) his repeated apologies, the United States was being blamed for setting the world on fire by the end of Obama’s tenure in the White House.

Should American liberals really expect Trump to take a similarly apologetic approach now that we’re seeing the result of eight years of abandoning Western values in favor of a more multiculturalist approach? They shouldn’t– but their jeers will continue. So be it. Because anyone paying attention to current events can see that populist attitudes will also continue to gain favor, increasingly drowning out the opinions of those holding elitist megaphones.

Common sense, perhaps one of the most underrated Western values, will eventually prevail.
