American cultural virus infecting Europe? Does the US need Poland's PiS?

Boring bien pensant opinion in Europe has long maintained that low-brow American culture - all the greasy fast food, oafish Hollywood shoot 'em up films (often starring a muscle-bound Austrian, Belgian, or Swede), and schlock television - has done incalculable damage to highbrow European culture. And it has happened with the assent of the average European, who happily scarfs down a McRib sandwich, feet swaddled in Air Jordans, while queuing for the latest "Transformers" film.

But there is a more pernicious American cultural invasion, as irritatingly destructive as the North American gray squirrel and, unlike the Hollywood blockbuster, wholly immune from free market pressures. It was noticed in 1994 by a reporter for Reuters, who gravely reported that the scourge of political correctness, "an American import regarded by many Britons with the same distaste as an unpleasant virus, finally seems to be infecting British society."

That's nothing compared to the latest idiocy of political correctness: from now on you have to apologize when you claim that "Black lives matter. White lives matter. All lives matter." Ask the presidential candidate Martin O'Malley, he knows.

Perhaps we Europeans should protect our continent by deporting all the Americans.

They would go for that Harry.
Perhaps bring their troops home and let you learn how to speak Russian.

Had to laugh at that oxy.
I am sure he wasn't talking about the American military so he has to be xenophobic.
Has he forgot that it was America's TinaTurner that taught European girls how to walk in high heels.

Harry, the Jews are not Europeans, keep that in mind

deporting all the Americans

Just ran across this Harryesque poor man's "pearl of wisdom". And here everybody thought you only despised Polish-Americans and Polonia with a passion. Now you have extended your hate speech to Yanks one and all. Interesting for someone who claims to be down on racism! That's called hypocrisy.

Merged: Does America need its own PiS?

Hillary v Trump? What a nasty choice Ameircans will have if those indeed are the opposing candidates! I hope the Dragon Lady (Hillary) doesn't make it. What was once the party of the working man and immigrant has long since degenerated into a grouping of anarcho-lefty-liberals, perverison peddlers, abortionists, radical anti-religionists and every manner of whacko the PC dictatorship could think up. The Republicans are also a mess -- pro-corporate lobbies plus gun-rights thugs and Bible-thumbing creationists. Too bad America doesn't have a moderate, even-keeled party similar to PiS -- social sensitivity without iconoclasm and Church-bashing, patriotism without chauvinism and far more pro-American than the US Democrats.

Merged: The Lord's Prayer (lib-creep style)

Lord's Prayer
BY A 15-year-old SCHOOL KID who got an A+ for this entry (TOTALLY AWESOME)!
The Lord's Prayer Is not allowed in most
US Public schools any more.
A kid in Minnesota, wrote the following

NEW School Prayer:
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Now I sit me down in school
Where praying is against the rule
For this great nation under God
Finds mention of Him very odd.

If scripture now the class recites,
It violates the Bill of Rights.
And anytime my head I bow
Becomes a Federal matter now.

P.S. What can one say? The first conclusion that comes to mind is:
THANK GOD WE'RE IN POLAND!
