It took some of us less than 17 seconds 30 years ago to realise where importing, impoverished, uneducated, skill-free, people from shit-holes and conflict zones with incompatible cultures would lead. Another one of those conspiracy theories... and bonus - racist.

A few weeks ago streets in northern English towns were lined with Pakistani flags with Pakistani immigrants celebrating. Why? Pakistan independence day, when Pakistanis no longer lived under British rule... then moved to Britain to live under British rule. There’s something about that picture I’m not seeing.

I've been called every political slur you can imagine since before the year 2 000 for pointing out the obvious.

Nowadays, when the people who called me the vilest things simply because I've stated things like "Sweden is the land of the swedish people, and no-one elses" wring their hands and ask "somebody do something" and "why didn't anyone speak out", I simply tell them:

"You did this. Now suffer. Don't ask me for help. Don't ask me or others like me to save you. Just explain to your son when he's robbed and pissed on by arabs and negroes that you his parent wanted them here. Explain to your daughter when afghans gang-rape her while filming it, that to not let tens of thousands of adult afghan men into Sweden would have been racist."

Now, they ask me and others like me to volunteer in case of war.

When I've asked:

"If a russian soldier was to invade my home and I kill him, I'm a hero - but if a negro migrant invades my home and I kill him, I'm a criminal. Explain to me the difference." people just scream that "it's different".

No, it's not.

I wouldn't even piss on "anti-racists" if they were on fire.

I remember the Belgian political party vlaams blok, they were called neonazis because they said Belgium for Belgians first. I thought they were right. If there is a leftover, you can give it away. But to first give to others and then to your own people - well we all can see where it leads now.

all this is true.

i disagree with you only in your often-expressed perspective on the nature of america, because we are not europe. the melting pot concept of america was always a wise one. ironically, some of the groups most resistant to melting include very pale non-muslims.

our foundational documents derived from the secular fruit of the western enlightenment are wise ones. the abandonment of those principles is our destruction.

The "melting pot" was cooked up by greedy politicians and totally naive Christians, who somehow thought Christ was an egalitarian Marxist...The US is being destroyed because Jewish congressmen with the help of drunkard Ted Kennedy passed the 1965 Immigration Act, opening our doors to the refuse from the 3d world, while limiting immigration from civilized white nations...now Biden is letting everyone on the planet sneak in...

To add to it, I am a white from a '3rd" world country, but I will not be allowed into the US, even legal asylum seekers from Zimbabwe that are white are refused, so it seems you have to also be not white even though the whites in South Africa are killed in ways that make the Hamas look like kindergarten bullies

"Melting pot" means either the destruction of every culture going into it and the conscious social engineering of something new where ethnicity, culture, racial heritage and so on aren't intrinsical, inherited and essential; or is simply a euphemism for (forcibly) assimilating all other cultures into the dominant one.

All empires and multi-cultural states must employ one or the other, out of necessity - and today also because acknowledging why it must be so is politically incorrect.

when i was a little girl in public school, we were all americans though every one of us had a particular cultural heritage too. kids went to after-school greek school hebrew school, etc. i struggled to fully understand that some people actually had grandparents who didn't speak with an accent.

to be an american was not a blood inheritance but a gift of citizenship. my great-uncle born in ukraine was buried with a us veteran's honors when he died at 91.

This is the difference you spoke about: my understanding of "american" will always be an outsider's one. Not even if I was to move there would I understand - not intuitively, naturally or emotionally - the feeling (?) you describe.

The opposite is also true: swedish is something one can only be born as, it cannot be "learnt" via integration or assimilation.

But the way things are going, both your understanding and mine of our respective nationalities may very well be gone inside three generations, being replaced by some kind of globalist corporate engineered "world citizen"-abomination.

coming of age in the civil rights era and during the vietnam war, i was not yet able to understand the true and enduring value of what our founders crafted for us. so it pissed me off with a vengeance when i first began to travel abroad and even amongst young people of similar size, shape and coloration, people spotted me at once as an american.

being a fairly recent immigrant in US I can see both ways - I am nowhere near understanding how americans can be so bound to a country, in Belgium we don't seem to have that. Especially since all white and black americans are immigrants. In a way even Mexican people are more homey in the US than overseas people. And you hardly meet natives... I have only seen a few while travelling.

I think a lot of it is the narrative preached in the media and schools. Back then, America was a sacred ideal, and becoming American was something to strive for. Now, our children are taught to despise heritage Americans collectively, and are left as morally second-class citizens to admire and envy only the Other, who has a cultural heritage to be proud of, and who has more right to the nation's bounty than they do.

The last talking point I heard was that America was a "salad bowl" rather than a melting pot.

Really. Not making this up.

Expand full comment

The melting pot as you call it was always in reference to the largest influx of migrants—those who came from Europe! Never was before a worldwide phenomena on par as to what it is today. Those migrants were White and Christian in the main. After 1964 and Hart-Celler Act, we began to import populace from races and cultures and religions very dissimilar to the US founding stock. That is the essence of the problem today here and in Europe.

It has never worked in the history of man, nor will it work now. Proximity plus diverse cultures equals violence.

You can forget making to make SCA see the problem with the current mass unregulated immigration. There are certain people in America who while not being woke are still very much blinded to what's going on. My 70 year old mother thought everything was fine until 2022 when I visited with her and shoed her things outside of the main stream media. As an older person she was convinced that her national and local news channel's were %100 reliable. They even convinced her Trump was Hitler reincarnated and now she's pro-Trump.

We often are critical of the younger woke people who are leading society to self destruct but they aren't the only dangerous groups. There's a sizeable number of Americans who are very much ignorant to what's going on because they trust their main stream news media sources.

Unfortunately Trump is a fraud and a paper tiger. He barely deported anyone, he dumped many criminals on the streets with the first step act, his deficits were horrible even before covid, and his covid lockdown policies were catastrophic and horrendous. Worst of all he still denies he made any mistakes on covid and STILL praises his warp speed injections and spits on the vaccine injured by saying they don’t exist because it didn’t happen to him. And somehow this is what some people call a populist!

Trump is not a fraud nor a paper tiger. National leaders of China, North Korea and Russia don't concede to paper tigers. yes he screwed up on some things like deportation but you're leaving out teh fact that much of the Federal Government was working against him precisely because he's not an establishment controlled president. As for the jab, yes he was %1900 wrong on that and still is. That said you're never going to have a president that doesn't do or believe something you disagree with.

He is a populist and his support of the covid jab doesn't negate that.

And allowing mass unregulated immigration of people is an abandonment of our principles.

The melting pot was never a part of America until the 1960s and the civil rights era to smooth over things between whites and blacks. Prior to that they had very specific immigration policy. It was so strict they agonized over importing Swedes and Germans because they worried they'd be too different from the British stock.

Multiculturalism does not work, as America is demonstrating. It will almost certainly split along ethnic lines no matter how hard people try to stop it.

It is quite possible to discuss this sensibly without racism or condemning others. Culture matters. The Arab countries do not allow even fellow Arabs to move to their countries never mind Europeans. We are now learning why.

you seem not to understand the difference between immigration quotas and the creation of a national and social identity.

I do. And it is that identity that is being lost. Fewer and fewer blacks identify with traditional American holidays like July 4th, for example. That was not the case 40 years ago. Some hispanics are calling for their kids to be taught in Spanish, which is not a good sign.

What I am challenging is the America is a nation of immigrants. It was built by Northern Europeans and no one else. Once they relaxed that it began to decline.

That is not a dig at the immigrants. But a country is a people not a place.

I was a teacher in Iran for 2 years up through the end of the Shah, and in Saudi Arabia for the next 8 years. It was a fascinating experience, but it was very clear to me that even had I wanted to, there was no way I as an American would or even could fit into living in a Muslim Middle Eastern country. Nor would I want to, the cultures are just too different.

Likewise, the immigrants from these countries do not and cannot fit into a Western Judao Christian culture. Europe is seeing first hand that it doesn't work. American is starting to realize it as well. The people from these countries need to go back to their home countries and work towards making them better places.

How do you not spend most of the time being sad instead of angry?

Seriously, I could use some help. Är du snäll.

Expand full comment

I think it's a two-part thing.

My personality is (partly) being stupidly bloody-mindedly stubborn.

That, and that it's a conscious choice: I decided decades ago to refuse the common subconscious conditioning that anger (or any emotion) is a "negative" one.

What you do with the anger (and not what it makes you do) is what counts. Even or especially if you're angry at yourself - to me, becoming angry is a far better cure for depression than anything else.

It sounds much grander than it is in practicality, but you know me and my purple prose.

Also, consider this: knowing what's wrong means being able to combat it. Compare it to thr struggle of the labour movement: they started out in the 1810s or thenabouts, but it took them until the 1910s to become a power and post-WW2 to have their parties (Socialist Democrat ones) cementing their grip on said power.

Almost 200 years, where the originators of the struggle knew full well that they'd probably wouldn't see any victory in their lifetime.

The British voters tried to close their open borders with the Brexit vote, and the only change they received was more restrictions on British travel and residency in Europe. Borders opened even wider post Brexit. The beatings will continue until morale improves.

Expand full comment

All roads lead to Brexit. What you say is not true. First many of the Pakistanis and others (we had a particular soft-spot for machette wielding Somali youths) came in legally - many with familial connexions - because that was policy determined in 1997 by the then Labour Government and continued under the Conservatives.

UK was never part of the borderless Schengen Agreement which had nothing to do with EU membership - Ireland isn’t either - and pre-dates the EU go8ng back to, I think, 1986.

Therefore a British passport was always required at point of entry to enter the Schengen zone when travelling from UK, but once within the zone no passport was required to transit between Schengen Countries. And please don’t argue because I travelled regularly on business to Europe, between 1977 and 1999, then lived 20 years in France.

So Brexit has nothing to do with the thousands paddling across the Channel, but everything to do with Governments who want to let it happen.

There is no restriction on travel in Europe or residency for British people. British citizens travelled and settled in Europe, particularly France and Spain prior to the EU which dates only from 1992 - Treaty of Maastricht, and even before EEC membership, 1973. Spain didn’t join the EEC until 1986, yet it had many British citizens resident there long before that - it was particularly popular with retired criminals. (No extradition treaty back then.)

EU rules are that stay in a Member State is limited to 90 days, after which it is necessary to show permanency of residency - evidence of permanent stay for previous 90 days, and regularity, which means ability to support oneself and not be a burden to the host State, and particularly if you want access to State health schemes and welfare system.

British people can still stay for 90 days, but if they want to stay longer they have to apply for residency. It’s not a big deal and was that way prior to 1992. Somehow Britain coped with existence prior to 1992.

This is dealt with differently depending on which Country. When I moved to France in 2002, I was obliged to get une Carte de Séjoir - residents permit, although I was not required to renew it - in order to join l’Assurance Maladie. I had to provide documentary evidence of my means to sustain myself without being a possible burden on the State.

In Germany and Italy, I believe a citizen of another EU Country must register on arrival if intending to become resident.

There is a great deal of uninformed chit-chat about Brexit, all from those who opposed it.

All ills these days are due to :Brexit; Climate Change; Trump - although not necessarily in that order.

COVID 19 as well I believe. I consider that Brexit was necessary but certain people were rather annoyed about this and COVID 19 was a good excuse to to try and put a spanner in the works.

I saw that recently Guy Verhofstadt attended a rally in Westminster with the aim of getting the UK back in the EU. What I think of this and the man is unrepeatable here but it seems that many who opposed Brexit were not even British.

In New Zealand and Australia we lost our British passports in 1948. Passports, anywhere, only existed from about 1919 but the removal of our British citizenship seems to have been hardly reported on at the time.

I'm not sure what the thinking was behind it but it wasn't for independence from the Bank of England as we ain't got that. Maybe it was the Federal Reserve garnering ownership entitlements as in 66 & 67 we both converted our currencies to the dollar albeit a local version.

Most places where Islam is the norm are tribal. They have considerable internal conflict. Most Islamic nations will not tolerate even other Muslims partly for this reason.

Egypt and Jordan have categorically ruled out taking any Palestinian refugees.

More worryingly, Islamic scholars in the Arab world have warned European nations to not take Muslim immigrants and to deport those who have settled in Europe.

You know it is bad when their own people encourage you to send them home. Their rationale is that Europe and North America lack the authoritarian nature to correctly discipline and keep the Muslims in line. Only other muslim nations can do this. What do you do when their top scholars are condemning your own government for their dangerous liberal ideas?

Socialism. The Labour Party won the 1945 General Election by promising a war weary population lots of ‘free’ stuff. It then nationalised industry and healthcare and established a National, taxpayer funded charity - the welfare state…. cradle to the grave.

Britain was bankrupt. The new welfare state cost a fortune, but never mind, the profits from the nationalised industries would fund it instead of going to ‘greedy’ capitalists.

However, after two wars within 30 years, there was a labour shortage. So inward migration was encouraged, from former empire Countries, largely India/Pakistan and West Indies. Cheap labour for the new National Health Service was needed, so doctors and nurses recruited abroad.

Any British subject in the British Empire was entitled to a British passport, which allowed them to travel to, reside in and work in the UK. In other words, immigrants had a Right to come to Britain. That was changed in 1968, to close the flood gates.

Some commentators here don’t seem to understand. Britain’s immigrant crisis isn’t some external cause, it is internal. It isn’t a situation caused by peoples abroad wanting to take over, it is entirely the policy of Governments since the war to bring in cheap labour, and in the case of the Labour Party, to provide it with votes from poor, illiterates whom in can exploit for political advantage.

But without outside investment, without profit incentive, heavily unionised as per Socialist ‘workers control means of production’, the State industries become bloated, wage demands unreasonable, cost more and more, uncompetitive.

Old industries - shipbuilding, iron & steel, heavy engineering, the motor industry were in competition with Japan, South Korea, Taiwan and a rebuilding Europe, and couldn’t survive.

They started shedding workers who went on the dole… and stayed there because there were no new jobs and incomers would take available jobs prepared to work less than what being on welfare paid.

The mess we are in is entirely if our own making.

India is dominated by Hindus who abuse Sikhs and Muslims. They even abuse each other with their caste system. They expelled the Muslims who created Pakistan precisely because they rejected multiculturalism. What don't you get about this? Most cultures don't mix. Newcomers can indeed migrate but the principle method to accommodate them is assimilation. When they create distinct enclaves they fail to assimilate.

Funny how NGOs and third worlders seem to be able to figure out how to move millions of migrants to Europe, but the reverse logistical operation of deporting them is so daunting that the police estimate it will take decades to remove even a few tens of thousands. Since the two operations are on the face of it equivalent - they both come down to moving around large numbers of people en masse - the apparently intractable nature of deportations is quite mystifying.

Especially considering that Pakistan, which surely has much less state capacity than Germany, just removed 1.7 million Afghans.

It's almost like the German government is ideologically committed to punishing its native population for the crime of being German, and therefore only ever takes action that harms them.

The Pakistani government gave them a date, 01 November and told them to be out by then.

We all know most would leave if you simply remove welfare. That's what the Danes did.

Almost certainly. But the childless middle aged women won't allow this, because that would deprive their surrogate babies of money. The females will need to be removed from power before anything can be done about the migrants.

Guards were in older times instructed thusly:

Challenge anyone approaching the post.

If they do not give the correct response, detain them and summon reiforcements.

If the person(s) approaching do not comply with orders to stop and stand still, fire a warning shot.

If they still disobey, shoot them.

It's that easy to remove invaders, and that's exactly the way Pakistan did it, and the afghans moved because they know that to refuse and make trouble would equal being shot on the spot.

It really is that easy, and anyone not understanding that shouldn't be allowed to vote or hold office.

That reminds me, "Flüchtling", the proper German word for refugee, is strongly discouraged by the left in favour of the clunky passive "Geflüchtete" (roughly "those who have fled").

It is a weird self-loathing post WWII, where Germans aren’t allowed to have any patriotism for their country (hence these weird controls on flags that only can come out during World Cup). Now it is mixed in with this weird self-loathing anti-white narrative. We see that here in the US too with American Jews who love/loathe Israel. We clearly see where that got them right now.

It's very instructive to compare the two moments, 2020 and 2023. In the pandemic, it was by and large the nation states that took steps to limit travel and close borders, but legally the EU is responsible for migration and particularly asylum. In this and some other respects, the EU is entrusted with state responsibilities but for a lot of reasons can't fulfil them.

Other forces at issue too: There's a whole NGO scene that drives open-border policies out of sheer momentum (all those careers tied up in it, all that funding), much the same is true for the policy formulation apparatus in the major parties. During the pandemic a separate set of bureaucratic forces superseded these, but they're back in control now.

Because when you tell a german "May not pass this line without mask and vax-pass" the german complies.

When you tell an arab, a negro or similar such races the same thing, they step over the line to see what you'll do.

Meaning, if you don't immediately use brutal force in public against them, they then know you're just sound and fury.

Can you imagine the reaction if border guards would start shooting invaders crossing the border illegally?

my basic theory about open borders, is that the political establishment among other things want a client class at the bottom. it's supposed to be stabilising for the current elite, in other words, however much it represents a crime against us natives. arguably mass immigration functioned more or less in this fashion through the merkel years, but the tidal wave is so unrelenting it's now having an opposite, destabilising effect, and it would be better for scholz and co., pragmatically speaking, if they could stop or at least moderate the influx.

What is your solution? As I understand, it is a stricter monitoring of the EU's outer borders. But even if it was possible to effectively control the entire Mediterranean, what are you going to with boats coming from Libya? Libya is not a safe place to push migrants back to. Do you just want to do it anyway because if the people on the boat aren't Libyans, they made the choice of going there in the first place? I disagree, but I understand the logic.

What I fundamentally disagree with is the underlying notion that the large number of migrants and refugees is mainly the direct consequence of our supposedly welcoming policies. I mean, to some extent that is true as migrants will obviously prefer a country with a good social welfare system, all else being equal. But doesn't the US also attract large numbers of migrants without a comparable welfare state? We could start a race to the bottom in Europe, even though I think the living conditions for refugees are already quite poor right now. But even if they got nothing but water and bread, I'm sure they would still try to come in the millions. because social benefits only add a layer of security, but the vast majority comes to work. People will come as long as there is a good chance of finding a job in Germany that pays enough to live AND support your family back home with much more than an average wage there.

I think the main reason for migration are the extreme economic disparaties between richer and poorer countries, paired with the internet that a) makes these disparities ever more visible, e.g. by showing poor Africans the life their friends and relatives live in Europe on their instagram feeds and b) makes migration more comfortable as you can stay in touch with your family, support them through mobile payment etc.

My solution is an end to EU jurisdiction over these matters, probably an end to Schengen as it exists now, a return to national European borders, and a reassignment of responsibility for border security to the member states. These states absolutely can, and historically have, managed travel across their borders, in the same way they police traffic, collect taxes, and widely enforce even minor items of the criminal code across their millions and millions of residents. Border security is not beyond the capability of modern states.

As for Libya and the relative safety and security of the migrants: Europe will have to stop caring about these things if it wants to survive. I care about the safety and security of the third world, as much as third worlders care about my safety and security.

Although you're surely right that there would be migrant pressure on Europe without the welfare state, it's also true that within the EU the most favoured migrant destinations are those countries with the best benefits packages. This is just objectively true. As things stand now, less hospitable countries like Denmark or Hungary see vastly fewer asylum applications. There will indeed, almost inevitably, be a race to the bottom sooner or later which will just punish the more generous hold-out states – I even posted about this dynamic back in October.

You forgot Poland. They don't seem to be letting the migrants anywhere near them even despite being a part of Shengen right now. When I went from Nuremberg in May this year (at 1am arriving in Nuremberg by train is plain dangerous due to Syrian refugees) to Warsaw, Gdansk and Krakow the difference was stark. They did though have huge numbers of police out to protect the transgenders in Gdansk towards the end of my stay there.

Expand full comment

We have to be careful that this race to the bottom doesn't incentivize criminal behaviour though. If people are allowed to stay, they must be allowed to work legally, and ideally they should also get free language classes to enable them to integrate into society as quickly as possible. If someone is definitely not allowed to stay legally, a quick deportation is certainly sensible. But that's easier said than done. A fair process costs time. People who don't cooperate, e.g. by losing their documents cost time, nerves, and resources. Lastly, countries refuse to take people back.

My ideal solution would be open borders even if it comes at a high cost for us. I didn't choose to be born in one of the richest countries of the world, and I don't see why someone who happened to be born in a poor country shouldn't have the same right to live in Europe. But I realize that this position is shared only by a small minority of people and the only major party where open borders are really popular is currently destroying itself, in part over exactly this topic. I also realize that it's in the rich countries' interest to limit and control migration, so while I think open borders would be the morally preferable way, I know it's utopian. That said, the EU showed that open borders can work at least when economic differences are not too extreme. I was sad about border closures being reintroduced i 2020. I grew up in Aachen, in walking distance from the Netherlands and Belgium, I often would visit friends on the other side of the border after school. At least in border regions, the quality of life would decrease a lot if you would need to wait in line and show your passports any time you would want to go from one place to the next.

Out of interest, what countries are you thinking about? Culture is a continuum, and it is rare that two neighboring countries differ extremely. Of course, religion is a factor, but I wouldn't necessarily say e.g. Turkey and Greece are culturally more distant from each other than say Sweden and Greece.

That is exactly why an open border allowing you to roam beyond Aachen was not a problem. When you allow someone to come from Pakistan to Aachen, there is no continuum of culture; recent history shows there may well be a violent clash.

That's what I mean.

I believe the US DOES offer much more money to illegal immigrants, they incentivize them in thousands of ways. They get 2,200 per month and when family units split up on purpose, they make that 4,400 per month. They get free housing, food and education and credits for transportation. The average American pension is 1,400 per month. I’m just shocked how little Germany is offering!

It may be unsafe to ship people back to Libya, but if you have all the able bodied men leave the country and leave the women and children behind, well, who is keeping the women and children safe back in Libya?

-Free health care and schooling

Ah yet another great essay.

As a proud Anti-Globalist let me just say there is a method behind the madness of mass, mainly Muslim, migration into the EU, the US and other First World Nations. Basically the globalists (the UN, WEF, WHO) are leveraging mass immigration to cause social division: as a means to bring about their New World Order. It is the old Hegelian Dialectic in action: Problem, Reaction, Solution. The UN's UNCHR has been pushing mass migration for decades. I've been warning about this for at least 27 years and counting. The obvious goal is a global New World Order where every human on planet Earth become mere slaves on a Global Plantation. Here in the US -- the other side of the pond -- globalist corporate media keeps talking about "we need immigration reform" which means . . . even more immigration. No the immigration reform that is required is mass deportation. Don't let the door his you in the ass. Sorry if these seems a bit cynical. But what I am saying is, in fact, the truth.

What is it particularly about German liberalism that fuels support for mass migration? I understand that throughout the western world, incl. the U.S., there's a desire to reduce the power and presence of anyone white and Christian, but in the U.S., there's the additional theory that Democrat leaders support migration to drive up Democrat vote tallies (though they seem to have enough ways to cheat to win anyway).
