Comment: The story reports on “refugees” who are unhappy in Europe and decide to go home. It’s interesting in several ways, not least of which is the approach taken by the reporter: She writes sympathetically about the refugees, thus avoiding the wrath of the goodthinkers, while the story itself clearly supports an anti-Narrative POV. I think Steve has pointed out a similar trend at the NYT recently. It’s a new year; I’m optimistic that cracks in the unity of Received Opinion will continue to grow.
As usual at the WaPo, the comments are mostly uncensored and almost 100% on the so-called right wing (really just common sense) side of this issue.
