Since the election of Barack Obama, the subject of European anti-Americanism is rarely touched upon even in new media and one could well have imagined that the phenomenon itself had simply disappeared. But as the coverage of the upcoming American congressional elections in leading French and German newspapers makes clear, “old” Europe’s anti-American impulse never in fact went away. At most, it merely went into a latent state, awaiting the proper conditions to become virulent again.
For a recent example from the German daily Die Welt, see my new post on The Daily Caller here.
