Over the last several years, the world at large has witnessed a sharp increase in international tensions and a deterioration of peaceful diplomacy at the global level. Prior to the 2020 election, Donald Trump served as the 45th president of the United States. During his single term in office, Trump championed the philosophy of “peace through strength” when implementing his foreign policy agenda. Largely, the world benefitted from a strong American executive. Trump had been demonized for years by many on the left and was called a “Russian sympathizer” many times. Democrats had alleged that Putin had interfered with the 2016 election on Trumps behalf, and the mainstream media had attempted to paint him as an illegitimate president. Despite these claims, Trump governed in an opposite fashion and was very tough on the Russian government. Trumps successor, Joe Biden, reversed these sanctions and as a result Russia invaded Ukraine, bringing armed conflict back to Europe for the first time in decades.
Trump had also attempted to bring peace to the Middle East, orchestrating the Abraham accords. Biden, appearing weak and incompetent, erased any progress made by Trump due to his poor leadership. In early October, Hamas terrorists invaded Israel, reigniting warfare in the region. In France, Jewish symbols of “Stars of David” have been found spray painted all across Parisian suburbs. Supposedly, a foreigner had been paying individuals to paint them; officials continue to investigate.
It appears that Graffiti incidents related to the promotion or the degradation of nationalities is not an isolated occurrence. In Northern Ireland, the words “Irish lives matter” were spray painted on the wall of the Kennedy Centre in Belfast. While police are treating this statement as a “hate crime”, the truth of the matter is that many people in nations across the west are finished with watching their governments admit millions of foreigners into their nations at alarming rates, deteriorating their culture and destroying homogeneity.
