It feels good to root for the underdog, which is why so many people do it. It’s assumed the underdog is under through no fault of his own. It’s fate, lousy luck, and it just ain’t right.
Conversely, we think badly of the overdog, the guy at the top, the high school football star, the prom queen. We’re full of envy, and hate them for it. They were born attractive and talented, and it just ain’t fair.
Almost all anti-Americanism in the world today stems from this human trait. Same goes for the ballooning anti-Semitism that we see all around us.
More and more, especially among the elites, the opinion-swayers in the Anglophone world and Western Europe, America is bad-mouthed, and so is Israel. The poor, oppressed Mohammedans have our hearts.
Truth is that America and its natural ally Israel are overdogs due to their cultures of democracy, capitalism and liberty. The Mohammedans are underdogs because their miserable, backward cultures are precisely the contrary.
Above are photos of Israeli women and Mohammedan women. In which world would you want to live? The beautiful Israeli babes are free. The Mohammedan women are covered, literally and figuratively.
Maybe they are beautiful too. There’s no way to know. Were they to show us, they might get thrashed or stoned.
The American government in recent decades, no matter the political party in charge, has strived to bring democracy and freedom to the Mohammedan world. The intention is nice, but it has not worked, and it never will.
Might as well try to teach independence to an ant or valor to a sheep. The miserable Mohammedan culture will always thwart such efforts.
