Uh, We Wish

When I saw this headline on one of my students' facebook feeds, I thought it was from The Onion, sort of like their classic "Drugs Win Drug War". Actually, it's from respectable UK publication The Telegraph.
I think the reporter heard some old-fashioned hell-in-a-handbasket rhetoric from far-right figures and thought it was something new. People had been telling me that what the British press says about American politics needs to be salted a little bit, and this would seem to be a case in point.
