Kevin Williamson | Why Does Obama Hate Los Angeles?





If the Martians landed tomorrow, I wouldn’t want to take them around to see the monuments in Washington; I’d want to take them to the Port of Los Angeles. For all its problems (and they are many, of course), it is a place that expresses something good and true about the world that we have built.

Watching them at work, I could not help but think of President Obama’s recent anti-globalization rhetoric and Harry Reid’s ridiculously Sinophobic poppycock, and wonder: Why do the Democrats hate Los Angeles? And California? And truck drivers? And crane operators? And the logistics industry?
