Mary Robinson's active fighting for the world's deprived - she hates the US of A!

Watching the Late Late as Kathleen Edwards who I saw in Whelans last night is supposed to be on - Mary Robinson is on now. I'm sure lots of other bloggers will dissect what little she said. In a world where the UN have repeatedly failed those who most needed them, the USA are left to "police" the world out of neccesity. Personally I'd take the US over the UN. But Mary wouldn't. As far as she's concerned the main problem facing the world is America. I won't list all the real dictators. Nor will I mention how the USA have been to the forefront in fighting for the rights of Africa's poor.
But poor Mary's busy trying to sort out the US - for then all will be well.
And God love her, she had to sit at the front of the plane while her UN assistant had to sit at the back.
This Irish liberal attitude is so comfortably anti-US it's scary. Pat Kenny takes her anti-American diatribes at face value.
We need to wake up and start looking for the real enemy.

Confortablely anti-American

Now there's the expression I've been looking for to describe the situation. Anti-Americanism isn't just linked to the liberals and politicals. When you think about it, any almost any non-political person you talk to at the moment seems to have it in for the US. Pat showed the same comfortable anti-Americanism (see, already!) when he "interviewed" George Galloway a few weeks ago. Ghastly stuff.

Richard Delevan called it politcal ####, which I also like.

I wish you would, because you would be enlightening me for one.

Yes, "comfortable" pretty much sums up. America's evil nature is by this stage an article of faith that some people are just happy to live with.

It's not anti-Americanism on the part of liberals it's disappointment. America has failed in the eyes of many Europeans to live up to their expectations. It's a fallen angel, broken dream or lost beauty. America was for long the home of some ideas which Europeans held dear. It's a love affair gone wrong but soon Europe will fall back in love again as the US distances itself from the extremes of Guantanamo Bay, Ghost detainees, torture and war. Under the circumstances a falling out of love was quite understandable.
