On Monday, negotiators from the German federal and state governments met to hammer out a solution to the migration crisis. The states themselves have been overwhelmed by the flood of refugees, whose numbers exceed all available infrastructure and financial resources. The federal government – the worst we have had since 1949 – has done very little
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.
lower energy post this evening, because among other things i am having extremely frustrating internet connectivity issues.
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.
Not completely powerless, it seems. Still resolute enough to ban the only party that wants to close the border, the AfD.
Eugyppius, I usually agree with many of your Views/Insights but here I have to disagree:
These scumbags are NOT powerless. They WANT mass immigration from shithole countries. Just like the lunatic left in the US, they hate a homogenous white population. Not sure why, but hey, they are crazy....
The West is committing suicide. The lamps are going out all over the West, they may never be lit again.
Sounds like business as usual.
Are proffessional politicians useless because they are dishonest, or are they dishonest because they are useless?
I´m not sure why they had the meeting in the first place. Perhaps their ends would´ve been better served by just distracting the public and "driving another sow through the village".
well, don't feel too bad. pakistan got utterly destroyed by unrestrained inflow of afghan refugees. now 40 years later they're finally throwing them out.
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.
2016 gave us Brexit, in Britain the Tories are about to be destroyed in a General Election and it's because of the boats and 600k legal immigrants last year, the highest in the history of these islands. Whatever happens next is going to be bigger than Brexit.
This weekend the Muslims are going to protest on Remembrance Sunday which is the nearest thing we have left to a sacred event. I hope that there will be mass riots and the public will be forced to notice. An attempt was made to abuse the Cenotaph during the race protests in 2020, we'll see how that fares this time
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). What's going on in Germany? Is it just hatred of anything white and Christian?
“Now that it has gotten out of hand, nobody from Brussels to Berlin can do anything about it, even as their failure to act threatens to destroy them.”
They cannot do anything or they don’t want to do anything?
