The annual World Economic Forum Davos summit was virtual this year.

However, that didn’t inhibit eyebrow-raising pronouncements, such as one from Angela Merkel, who cannot seem to tell the difference between the United States and China.

Hmm. Who is behind this statement of hers?

Guido Fawkes has the story (emphases in the original, the one in purple mine):

Following a line laid out by the Chinese Communist Party’s Xi Jinping on Monday urging the EU to avoid building of blocs, Merkel said:

“I don’t think it would do justice to many societies if we were to say this is the United States and over there is China and we are grouping around either the one or the other. This is not my understanding of how things ought to be.”

If you think there is moral equivalence between a genocidal communist state and a free democracy then you have a problem. Thank God the EU no longer controls UK trade policy…

The United States is actually a constitutional republic, but one takes Guido’s point.

That said, based on Joe Biden’s first week, the US is quickly sliding into the quagmire, as one of my readers, Katherine, pointed out last Friday:

A less unifying first week in office could hardly be imagined. Thirty-three Executive Orders were issued. Most were radical-left agenda items strongly opposed by half the country; many will be challenged in courts. Jobs have been destroyed; the murder of innocent babies with federal money has been approved, and the categories of “male” and “female” have been declared inoperative. He can’t treat half the country with contempt and then expect “unity.”

One can only hope that something or someone puts an end to America’s off-the-cliff decline. This cannot be allowed to continue.
