NY Times turns to young Europeans – with visual props – to pass judgement on ‘hellhole’ America

New York Times

Citing some of the horrors of living in the hellhole of America — you know, things like insufficient parental leave — The New York Times showcased young Europeans passing judgement on life in the United States.

“We asked young, ordinary Europeans to take a look at U.S. policies on everything from food to guns,” the newspaper said of the effort. “As they discover facts about America, they’re not impressed.”

The catch being that the liberals at The New York Times are the one’s selecting the criteria being judged and how it’s presented.

While the campaign has not been well-received online, it shows yet again how the left is desperate to be like Europe — even if women are advised to have escorts to walk down the street in any number of European countries.

The video clip of young Europeans responding to things like the “large” fast food cup size in the U.S. being larger than across the pond was shared on Twitter over a week ago, but currently has just 257 “likes.”

The caption says: “Americans have grown accustomed to the exorbitant costs of basic human services, the absence of parental leave protection and the unregulated presence of chemicals in food — things that would ’cause riots’ in Europe.”

It’s not clear if The Times is lamenting over there not being riots in America in pursuit of a progressive agenda.

Social media users were quick to add a little context to the analysis, with a common theme being Uncle Sam’s role in defending Europe and freeing up untold amounts of money for them to pursue social justice.

Here’s a sampling of results from Twitter:
