I recently read a book called, Look Who’s Back, about Hitler waking up in a parking lot in today’s Berlin and beginning his ascent to power. It is a comedy, one of those uncomfortable comedies, and, despite myself I laughed ’til I cried. But real-world Germany doesn’t like “differences” and will simply slaughter these people when they tire of them. At least that’s what I think will happen, as opposed to the theory that they accept them.
Tony Abbott, the former prime minister of Australia, used his first major speech since his ouster last month to denounce Europe’s migration policies, warning in London that the continent risked “fundamentally weakening itself” through “misguided altruism” as large numbers of asylum seekers arrive.
“All countries that say ‘anyone who gets here can stay here’ are now in peril, given the scale of the population movements that are starting to be seen,” Mr. Abbott, a conservative, said on Tuesday during a lecture honoring the British prime minister Margaret Thatcher.
Mr. Abbott backed an aggressive policy on migration during his two years in office. The Australian authorities turned away boats and refused to accept asylum seekers intercepted at sea, instead sending them to offshore camps. Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull, who replaced Mr. Abbott in September in a party coup, has announced no change to those policies.
Mr. Abbott recommended the same approach for Europe. “This means turning boats around, for people coming by sea,” he said. “It means denying entry at the border, for people with no legal right to come. And it means establishing camps for people who currently have nowhere to go.”
Huh, I think we need to set up a new, powerful, extremely well-funded branch of the UN, UNREUR, UN relief for EU Refugees. They need their own school system where they teach the kiddies to hate Europeans, to bomb them, kidnap them, and knife them on the streets. As UN member states, we all must pay into the kitty.
Such a tough policy would “gnaw at our consciences, yet it is the only way to prevent a tide of humanity surging through Europe and quite possibly changing it forever,” he said.
How sweet is that? They are concerned about their consciences. Aww…
His remarks came hours after the president of the Philippines, one of several countries where Australia has hoped to send asylum seekers, said the country would not accept them for permanent resettlement.
The Phillippines won’t take them? Why not? The NY Times doesn’t say. But perhaps we have some toilet seat lids left over from Bush I that we can sell them?
As public criticism of the camps has increased, the Australian government has tried with little success to resettle asylum seekers in third countries. After just four people were sent to Cambodia under a $29 million agreement reached last year, Australia said this month that it was in talks with the Philippines.
Ahh, beautiful, the Left has redefined these poor folks from war refugees, fleeing for their lives, to economic refugees – people they don’t need to accept on humanitarian grounds!
“In Europe, as with Australia, people claiming asylum invariably have crossed not one border but many, and are no longer fleeing in fear but are contracting in hope with people smugglers,” he said. “However desperate, almost by definition they are economic migrants because they had already escaped persecution when they decided to move again.”
Lovely. I have built a new room, off the kitchen of my house, to store popcorn. The revolution will be televised.
