Merkel’s grandstanding on Syrian refugees will lead to many more deaths at sea

Of all the irresponsible decisions taken in recent years by European politicians, few will cause as much human misery as Angela Merkel’s plan to welcome Syrian refugees to Germany. Hailed as enlightened moral leadership, it is in fact the result of panic and muddled thinking. Her pronouncements will lure thousands more into the hands of unscrupulous people-traffickers. Her insistence that the rest of the continent should share the burden will add political instability to the mix.

Merkel has made a dire situation worse.

  • When the 25,000 number explodes four-fold, what will Chancellor Merkel do then?

    • lolwut?

      You mean 800,000, and then the wave of Family reunification applications
      and then wave after wave of people who will simply show up gambling that Germany will give in and allow them to stay.

      Germany is now the top destination of the migrants, word is spreading fast
      they all are going to want to be part of that 800,000 being accepted.

      The only way this is going to be stopped is if the people go after the leadership, this has gone waaaaaaay beyond winning elections.

      Like the article says, social media, GPS, instant access to map routes.

      In many places they don’t even need a map, just follow the trail of garbage.

        What does that mean as far as Germany not having the funds to bail out socialist countries anymore?

        That’s one of them-thar rhetorical questions, thar.

        • lolwut?

          Think of the children.

      • And thanks to Merkel’s insanity, this can all go on.

        Danke, Angela.

  • Liberalism must make politicians myopic?

    What kind of fool cannot see, it you put dog food on the porch, you will attract more dogs.

    By announcing open borders Merkel assures countless refugee/invaders will swamp Germany.

    This well meaning program will sow the seeds of German/islamic civil war or total German collapse.

    Not a good outlook for a “well meaning liberal” choice.

    • lolwut?

      Don’t tell them that, they think when the dust settles the Muslim and African hordes with happily share a place with at the top.

      Lots of happy songs around a fire, twisting each others hair into dreadlocks, lots of cultural dances and costumes and the food, don’t forget the food….

      ISIS will of course see this and instantly drop their weapons and bring flowers and gifts for the new happy world.

      Be merry my friend, be merry!

      • Yeah, that’s the vision in their nutty minds.

      If you put dog food on the porch you won’t just get dogs coming too eat free. You’ll find that you also attract skunks and porcupines.

      A few years ago a Christian sect would go to a park and hand out soup and sandwiches to the homeless, as things progressed more homeless and others would show up to the park for the free food. Soon the locals were unable to enjoy their park. Needles used condoms broken bottles sexual assaults muggings, the usual detritus of leftism’s do-gooderism.

      • lolwut?

        Oppenheimer park in Vancouver is exactly like that

        They now even supply chairs for the alcoholics to sit in so they don’t slide off the benches and hurt themselves or fall down if they are standing when the benches.

  • I thought Merkel had some intelligence when she dealt with the Greek crisis firmly – but now she has shown herself to be an utter incompetent dealing with the invasion crisis by illegally opening Germany’s and Europe’s doors to unfettered immigration from Muslim countries.

    And don’t forget, the 800,000+ immigrants to Germany announced for this year, and the 500,000 per year announced for thereafter, these will ALL be able, as legal German residents, to go and live anywhere they like in the European Union, like it or not. Until now I still had some hope for Europe, but the latest developments can only spell the demise of this once great continent.

      As if there will be fewer next year than this year. If Africa does a Mexico and empties out 10% of its population to the North that will be a hundred million.

      • tom_billesley

        The population of Africa is set to double in 35 years.

      • Yes, for sure. If Europe would not or could not stop 100,000 then it won’t and can’t stop 100 million. The message has doubtless been received loud and clear and they will stream in in ever greater numbers now.

  • Last Friday, I mentioned Richard Nikolaus von Coudenhove-Kalergi as a possible explanation of today’s welcome of illegal immigrants by Merkel and Juncker, but I did not have time to look into the matter more closely, and was unsure what to make of this claim that I found on the Internet in various blogs ranging from rational to neo-Nazi.

    Looking now at the Wikipedia article on this man, I see that there is both truth and falsehood in the claim.

    The truth is that Kalergi was apparently a forerunner of today’s multi-culti philosophy, since he wrote: *The man of the future will be of mixed race. Today’s races and classes will gradually disappear owing to the vanishing of space, time, and prejudice. The Eurasian-Negroid race of the future, similar in its appearance to the Ancient Egyptians, will replace the diversity of peoples with a diversity of individuals.” It is also true that both Merkel (2010) and Juncker (2014) have received the Kalergi Prize, so that is a common thread between them on this subject.

    The falsehood is the claim that Kalergi was a Jew and an agent of the Jewish Conspiracy to dominate the world. This thesis is plugged for instance by Golden Dawn, the Greek neo-Nazi group. The truth is, this man was not a all Jewish – his father was a non-Jewish European mix and his mother Japanese, so this is pure propaganda. Moreover, while Kalergi and his father were anti-anti.Semitic, they were also critical of Jews in some respect (in a reasoned manner), so they could hardly be viewed as favoring a Jewish conspiracy.

    In conclusion, it is interesting to take note of one of the doctrinal roots of today’s open arms welcome of foreign invaders (the Syrians, Afghans, Africans, etc invading Europe) is indeed Kalergi.

      These two don’t help quell those beliefs….

      Most people don’t move far from their birth places. It seems almost counter-intuitive in today’s mobile age but recent studies in Europe have proven it true. People also usually marry and reproduce with others in their own social and economic groups.

      I too once thought we’d all end up brown, but just as Darwin realized there was a reason why all horses weren’t gray, we are discovering that there are large population islands that don’t share gene flow.

    “Merkel has made a dire situation worse”
    Yup Merkel is an idiot, the German people need to flush her down the toilet for attempting (and maybe succeeding) to flush their country down the toilet.

  • disqusW6sf

    I used to think Merkel was one of the few intelligent leaders, now I think she has become dizzy and confused in her judgment. Time to resign.

    • lolwut?

      Women crack under pressure and she’s fighting her Feeeeeeelings.
      That boy on the beach was the tipping point, it jabbed her right in the womb.

      • disqusW6sf

        What about men like PM Cameron…can his lack of judgment be based on plain old stupidity? Makes sense to me.

        • lolwut?

          Cameron is stupid, trying to shore up his voter base while trying to avoid a complete public meltdown.

          Merkel just completely and utterly lost it……That’s pure, undiluted hysteria.

          She literally invited the entire third world into Europe.
          she’s running around doing meet and greets with migrant children, her mommy instincts has kicked into overdrive.

    There is something Biblical about what is occurring in Europe and the Middle East.

    • lolwut?

      Naw, just a modern version of what Islam has done before…

      But in those days, people fought back and didn’t hold welcome signs.
