…from the quill of Antisthenes the Younger
There must be something wrong here – they flee from their liberators, of their own skin colour and religion to follow the cruel and incompetent colonialist oppressors to infidel, exploitative Europe? How does it fit the Marxist or, for that matter, even the basic, post-modernist narrative? The simple progies, unable to think for themselves, wouldn’t know and wouldn’t care. Their slightly more intelligent manipulators accuse anybody asking anything of racism.
I am writing about the people, variously described as asylum seekers, welfare seekers, economic refugees, Islamic invaders, undocumented arrivals, surreptitious migrants and sometimes even innocent refugees. One wonders what they call themselves? Lottery winners? An advance guard?
According to some sources, 570,800 of them registered in European Union in 2014 which doesn’t quite fit with January 13, 2015 the European Union Commission statement that said in 2014 “more than 276,000 migrants illegally entered the EU, which represents an increase of 155 percent compared to 2013>.” Obviously, politics, statistics and the truth, are at more than arm’s length.[Is Europe losing control of its borders?]
Spengler recently wrote about that proverbial frog in boiling water, i.e. Muslim migration, and he could be, possibly, right [Muslims, Europeans and boiled frog]. In the meantime UN and EU apparatchiks distract the subjugated population by demonising Hungary:
BUDAPEST, Hungary (AP) — Hungarian Prime Minister Victor Orban denounced multiculturalism and liberalism Friday and vowed to fight a rising wave of migration that he said is threatening to turn his country into a “refugee camp.”
In his annual state of the nation speech, Orban called a multicultural society “a delusion” and defended his conservative government’s attempts to abandon “liberal social policies” that he accused of rejecting Christian culture.
“(A Hungarian) does not want to see throngs of people pouring into his country from other cultures who are incapable of adapting and are a threat to public safety, to his job and to his livelihood,” Orban said. …”
How dare he think of his fellow citizens?
And, by the way – “Hungary has become an economic success story, which is slowly being recognized by Europe,” Orban said, noting the country’s 2014 estimated growth rate of 3.5 percent, one of Europe’s highest, and its low inflation and unemployment rates.”
