«La noche que le dimos el adios a América … nuestra última buena esperanza sobre la Tierra»

Así o más bien, así  «The night we waved goodbye to America… our last best hope on Earth»  es como Peter Hitchens, del Mail on Sunday saludó -es un decir- la abrumadora decisión de los norteamericanos de votar a Obama, y no personalicemos sólo en él, también a los Diputados y Senadores del Partido Demócrata.

Un artículo que destila bilis contra Obama:

Just look at his sermon by the shores of Lake Michigan. … He reached depths of oratorical drivel never even plumbed by our own Mr Blair, burbling about putting our hands on the arc of history (or was it the ark of history?) and bending it once more toward the hope of a better day (Don’t try this at home).  I am not making this up. No wonder that awful old hack Jesse Jackson sobbed as he watched. How he must wish he, too, could get away with this sort of stuff.

Lo que más le disgustó es que los pobres, los emigrantes, los tercermundistas que trabajan y le dan el músculo y la sangre a América, esos estaban contentos.

I was in Washington DC the night of the election. America’s beautiful capital has a sad secret. It is perhaps the most racially divided city in the world, with 15th Street – which runs due north from the White House – the unofficial frontier between black and white. But, like so much of America, it also now has a new division, and one which is in many ways much more important. I had attended an election-night party in a smart and liberal white area, but was staying the night less than a mile away on the edge of a suburb where Spanish is spoken as much as English, … As I walked, I crossed another of Washington’s secret frontiers. There had been a few white people blowing car horns and shouting, as the result became clear. But among the Mexicans, Salvadorans and the other Third World nationalities, there was something like ecstasy.  They grasped the real significance of this moment. They knew it meant that America had finally switched sides in a global cultural war. Forget the Cold War, or even the Iraq War. The United States, having for the most part a deeply conservative people, had until now just about stood out against many of the mistakes which have ruined so much of the rest of the world.

Este plumilla bien alimentado y bien pagado por escribir estas cosas se indignaba de que los trabajadores votaran contra los que han hundido a América y a favor de una esperanza, todo lo ilusoria que pueda ser en este momento pero al menos la promesa de un cambio.

Es el tipo de persona que vive de lamentar los males que ellos mismos causan.

A todo esto, que los que al plumilla le gustan a Inglaterra la han hundido.  Y lo publica un diario, el Daily Mail, que nunca se podrá quitar el oprobio de haber apoyado a Hitler antes de la guerra -hasta que Churchill amenazó al dueño con mandarlo a la cárcel.
