U.S. politicians who receive invitations to the World Economic Forum’s annual meeting in Davos, Switzerland, always seem to say stupid things, or stay silent when they could speak up for American values.
We have several creepy crawlers over there this week who exude what’s wrong with America – Seth Moulton, Joe Manchin and Brian Kemp. There are many others but, for brevity’s sake, let’s focus on these three as examples of why no U.S. politician worth their salt should attend these meetings.
Vera Jourova, the vice president of values and transparency for the Executive European Commission, speaking Tuesday on a Davos panel with the Orwellian title “The Clear and Present Danger of Disinformation,” predicted the U.S. would soon have hate speech laws, like they do in Europe, regulating what people can and can’t say on the internet.
Here she is, sitting next to the Democrat Congressman from Massachusetts, Seth Moulton, who she taps condescendingly on the arm and laughs as she makes her dystopian prediction. Watch the video below and you’ll see Moulton just smiles and says nothing to rebut her evil prediction.

One would think that, being an American, Congressman Moulton would have politely rebuked this creep from the E.U. and reminded her that we Americans have something called the First Amendment, which guarantees every citizen the right to freely speak their opinions in the public square. It doesn’t matter if she or anyone else deems our opinions “extreme,” nor does it matter how unpopular our opinions may be, they are protected by the First Amendment. That’s just the way it is and always has been in America. It’s what makes us unique in the world.
But no. Moulton, being a good little globalist stooge who was thrilled to get his invitation to rub elbows with the rich and famous of Davos, just sat there like a bump on a log and smiled, accepting the bitter medicine handed to him by the wily witch from Europe.
