John McCain’s globalist worldview, one that has, among other futile endeavors, gotten the United States into a pointless war with Iraq, is radically different from that of Donald Trump.
And yet despite its failures internationally, internally, and at the ballot box, instead of learning and switching to something that actually works, the Arizona senator has taken virtually every opportunity to take shots at Trump.
According to the Washington Post, in a speech to European leaders at the Munich Security Summit, McCain “delivered a pointed and striking point-by-point takedown of Trump’s worldview and brand of nationalism. McCain didn’t mention Trump’s name once, but he didn’t have to.”
Here are a few samples of McCain continuing to parrot his tired and failed talking points:
“The next panel asks us to consider whether the West will survive. In recent years, this question would invite accusations of hyperbole and alarmism. Not this year. If ever there were a time to treat this question with a deadly seriousness, it is now.”
“They saw open markets give way to beggar-thy-neighbor protectionism, and the poverty that imposed.”
“They saw a world order fracture into clashing ethnic and nationalist passions, and the misery that wrought.”
“They saw the rise of hostile great powers, and the failure of deterrence, and the wars that followed.”
“From the ashes of the most awful calamity in human history was born what we call the West—a new, and different, and better kind of world order … one based not on blood-and-soil nationalism, or spheres of influence, or conquest of the weak by the strong, but rather on universal values, rule of law, open commerce, and respect for national sovereignty and independence. Indeed, the entire idea of the West is that it open to any person or any nation that honors and upholds these values.”
“They would be alarmed by an increasing turn away from universal values and toward old ties of blood, and race, and sectarianism.”
“They would be alarmed by the hardening resentment we see toward immigrants, and refugees, and minority groups, especially Muslims.”
“They would be alarmed by the growing inability, and even unwillingness, to separate truth from lies.”
“They would be alarmed that more and more of our fellow citizens seem to be flirting with authoritarianism and romanticizing it as our moral equivalent.”
“But what would alarm them most, I think, is a sense that many of our peoples, including in my own country, are giving up on the West … that they see it as a bad deal that we may be better off without … and that while Western nations still have the power to maintain our world order, it is unclear whether we have the will.”
