    It's a trope that's sometimes used to address certain issues, but it isn't applied uniformly. When there is renewed discussion over problems surrounding European multiculturalism, it's not as if American liberals still use the trope. Nevertheless, it's still somewhat present in discussion.

    Personally, I think it's merely used as a means to promote policy change domestically.

    Your link doesn't support the claim that was made

    Here's the claim

    Not necessarily you do not have to be economically Liberal to to be socially Liberal. I might be a social democrat but Europe is a pretty big failure economically.

    Here's the claim
    If we’re a touch less jingoistic today, and if the rising generation seems a bit more European (or Asian or Latin) in its comfort with collective action, it’s not a sign of national decline. It’s evidence of the U.S. doing what it does best: synthesizing. Adapting to a changing world. The U.S. is always going to be the land of liberty. But as we mature, we can cherish liberty and responsibility, the individual and community. And we can wear our unparalleled appeal with confidence, not cockiness. That’s an exceptionalism to aspire to.
    It's still an employment of that trope.

    That American liberals frequently view Europe as more enlightened or civilized? I don't have a systemic study of American liberalism and its views toward Europe in front of me, but I did provide an example of that trope being employed.

    Good for you!

    But I asked for proof of the claim that apdst made.

    Which was how often it is used? You're looking for a systemic study?

    My best guess would be to start with the phrase "The [U.S./United States/America] is the only developed nation...."

    Re: Paris Riots After Gay Marriage Vote

    I wonder when equal gay rights becomes a reality here in the US if we will have bigots and morons actually doing violent protesting?

    I dont think theres enough people to be that stupid. Not saying we dont have our share of stupid people but i dont think they would be that stupid to "riot" against equal rights

    The good thing about the war on bigotry is that it may be the first time France ever wins a war.
