The Latest: Slovakia Rejects EU Plan to Help Migrants

Slovakia has brushed aside a European Union proposal to share an additional 120,000 refugees in Greece, Hungary and Italy among their EU partners even before the offer is officially made public.

Slovakian Foreign Minister Miroslav Lajcak said Friday that “quotas solve nothing. We hear there are four million migrants in Turkey now, so where is it going to stop?”

    “We hear there are four million migrants in Turkey now, so where is it going to stop?”

    Right on.

    Not a single EUnuch will come up with a sensible answer to Minister Lajcak’s question. That won’t stop them from insinuating that he’s a heartless Nazi.

    Apparently they’ve said they’ll accept Christians and atheists, but not muzz, because they have no fucking mosques.

    Maybe it would be cheaper to be imperialists.
    You know, go into those failed states, remake them in the superior image of what was until the second world war the most successful culture the world has ever seen.
    It’s not isolationist, completely.
    Just an acknowledgement that sometimes the world comes to you and you have to deal with it.
    And if you get paid doing it, as you should for your efforts, then so much the better.
    For everyone.

    Good for the Slovaks. Back when we visited there, did see some Muslims (regulation tent attire) but assumed they were families of students at one of the many post-secondary institutions in the city (when family member graduated, there were nine people representing the various other post-secondary educational institutions in the city, including the Slovak Air Force – distinguished by his uniform of Air Force Blue). No mosques we could see: a couple of synagogues, one rather derelict, with plaques remembering when the city’s Jews were rounded up and shipped off to concentration camps.

    Slovaks didn’t free themselves from the 45-year grip of Soviet Russia only to welcome new foreign masters. Of course, the Fourth Reich in Brussels doesn’t get it and never will.
