Europe’s Refugee Crisis Isn’t about Economics—It’s about Culture

“…But is it really racism or extremism to want to protect your national borders, or prevent the societal and cultural chaos that ensues when the flows of immigration swamp a society’s absorption capacity? It seems that, for the nation’s elites, the answer to that question is yes. There doesn’t seem to be any level of immigration that raises concerns on the part of some of these people.

But the hinterland view is something else again. In the United States, the elite media can’t understand how such a crude figure as Donald Trump could be getting the poll numbers that, so far in the presidential campaign, have buoyed his candidacy. But part of the answer is that he has tapped into this concern on the part of people who don’t consider themselves racists or extremists and who resent being characterized as such.

They know instinctively what the elites wish to ignore—namely, that a very large part of world history is the story of invasions and migrations, and that it often isn’t so easy to tell the difference between them. It is also the story of resistance to invasions and migrations. Consider the Great Wall of China, built in various stages over centuries to protect the core Chinese civilization from massive numbers of nomadic tribesmen from the Eurasian Steppes.”

    1) Moderate Moslems are responsible for creeping sharia.
    2) Jihadist Moslems are responsible for keeping infidels subdued.
    3) Islam does not assimilate, it conquers.
    4) The Quran and Hadiths justify and exonerate anything.

    That is all.

      5 out of 5 – unfortunately.

      Those oft-cited moderate muslims are like soldiers in the reserve waiting to be called up or, perhaps more accurately, a dormant virus – a low level continual drain on the immune system, only waiting for the right conditions to launch a full-fledged attack on their host.

        Even if they don’t take up arms against us, will they prevent jihadists from persecuting Jews and Christians?

        Instead of guessing about the future, look at what is happening around the world right now. There’s your answer.

      Aw, c’mon, we all know deep down that Mohammed was a feminist, a very progressive leader!

        Cripes I’ve been wrong about islam all along. I must now turn myself in to the nearest diversity officer for re-education and sensitivity training.
