Anti-Immigrant Protests Grow as Thousands of Refugees Flood Europe

While the debate over whether to accept Muslim refugees continues in the United States, in Europe, where millions of refugees have already been allowed in, tense anti-immigrant protests are quickly spreading.

Conservative political parties are also on the rise from Sweden to Poland to the Czech Republic, partially fueled by the recent terror attacks in Paris. These political leaders fear not only the numbers of refugees, but the Islamic radicals they believe could be hiding among them.

Germany recently registered its one millionth refugee, but the country’s move to welcome them has ignited a far-right backlash in the form of a street protest group called PEGIDA, or Patriotic Europeans Against the Islamacization of the West.

“It’s not good for our people, not for our culture, not for our life,” said one protester at a recent rally in Dresden, Germany.

        When government-assisted refugees do arrive, the details of when they touch down in Edmonton will remain under wraps, said Michael Di Massa, a spokesman for Catholic Social Services. The agency is responsible for welcoming and orienting government-assisted refugees in Edmonton.
        “If there’s a large group there with cameras and bright lights, it might give them the wrong impression right off the bat,” Di Massa said.

        Apparently their crash course in living in Canada will include help in getting a Social Insurance Number, taking them grocery shopping, and showing them how a microwave works.

          They better add ‘what a toilet is’ and how it works to that list.

            That still won’t change a thing. I say this from personal experience with Muslims being introduced to modern toilets. They continue to want to wipe with the left hand and demande to have a kettle of water nearby.

            And the hispanics won’t put the used TP in the toilet they prefer to throw it on the floor.

    The governments of Europe have decided. It’s irrelevant what their mere subjects think.

    My question for these reporters is, what makes these protesters “far-right?”

    While ‘Conservatives’ in Europe are gradually rising to stop this mohammedan invasion here in Canada our new interim leader of CP Ms. Ambrose is busy criticizing Mr. Trump for his sensible & appropriate approach on mohammedan issues. I guess she’ll destroy the spirit of conservatism from the Canadian Conservative Party just like Kim Campbell & Brian Mulroney did.

    • Alain

      At the rate things are going they are determined to kill the party just as what happened after Mulroney left.
