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:
We left there for a reason. But you can go back, no worries.

Spoiler alert: there actually are riots in Europe and have been for some time. Pretty sure this very newspaper has frequently reported on them. #YellowVests

You morons do realize there has literally been economic riots in Europe (France and Sweden) right? When did the New York Times become a trash parody site?

How much do they pay in taxes for all of this “free” stuff?
To the girl who said our younger generation gives her hope for us, her hope better not include our youth fighting their wars when they’re attacked again.
If you need the govt to help raise your kids, don’t have kids.

Europe is nice place to visit but there is no way in hell I would ever move there permanently.

Everytime they said “completely free” I laughed my ass off.

“unregulated presence of chemicals in food” this line is a blatant lie and you know it, you #FakeNews propagating rag that isn’t even worthy of being called a fish wrap or to be used as bird cage liner.

Must be nice to finance their “socialist utopias” while spending virtually nothing on their defense assuming Uncle Sam will provide for them, all the while bashing those who ensure their safety.

That’s funny, Europe always seems to be having riots, even with their socialist grab bags of goodies.
Got a toy for that?
