Eugene McCarthy vs. the World

Steve Sailer posts on one of the heroes of Bill Kauffman's Look Homeward America: In Search of Reactionary Radicals, who argued that "how America has been turning into a colony of the rest of the world–a captive of its self-imposed duty to police the world, its borders a mockery for all to cross" — Not Wanting America to be "A Colony of the World" Is McCarthyite.

Others, noted by Mr. Sailer, find such thinking un-American, ranging from an Hispanic journalist to the Libyan strongman who noted that "American is for all of us and the whole world had made and created America" — Jorge Ramos Endorses the Gaddafi Corollary to Invade-Invite.

The former Iranian president agrees — Trump Schooled on WHO WE ARE: "U.S. Belongs to All Nations ... No One May Consider Themselves the Owner and View Others as Guests or Immigrants," Notes Ahmadinejad.

While Mr. Ahmadinejad suggested "the contemporary U.S. belongs to all nations," he at least allowed that this is "including the natives of the land;" the Slovenian philosopher disagrees — Slavoj Žižek: "Everybody in the World Except US Citizens Should be Allowed to Vote and Elect the American Government".

"My job is not to represent the world," said our McCarthyite president the other night, contra the Jorge Ramoses, Gaddafis, Ahmadinejads, and Žižeks. "My job is to represent the United States of America."
