‘We’re full’ says Austria: Foreign minister says it will stop all migrants at the border

Austria today demanded Macedonia ‘completely stop’ the flow of migrants across its border from Greece after saying it had nearly reached its ‘maximum’ intake.

Macedonia has erected metal fencing topped with razor wire along the border at the main crossing point from Greece for migrants crossing the Balkan peninsula en route to western Europe.

Austria, which received 90,000 asylum requests last year, has set a limit of less than half that number for this year.

    When government abdicates its #1 responsibility, protecting public safety, then people will do it themselves, and it can get ugly.

    During San Francisco’s early lawless times, the Committees of Vigilance were organized for crime fighting until the actual government became serious.

    • Makes sense.

      That’s why the Guardian Angels came about; in the bad old days of 1970s, 80s, and early 90s New York City. The police were not doing their job and allowing criminals to terrorize the city, and people got fed up with it.

        And the media relentlessly tried to paint the Guardian Angels as knuckledraggers.
        I hate the media.

      Sometimes when I’ve confronted liberals with the evidence of photos like this, they insist that either the biased right-wing media cherry-pick rare images of male-only groups of migrants, or that mostly young men are coming to Europe because it’s somehow “too dangerous” for women, children, and elderly people to make that trip (but it’s not too dangerous to leave them in a war zone?), and that most of them are devoted and caring sons, husbands, and fathers who are hoping to send for their families as soon as they get settled. There is no end to the delusions of some people.

        26% of the refugees are children and 18% are females over the age of 18. That’s 44% of the number of refugees, so almost half. The term “regressive leftist” (an oxymoron) was invented by a British Muslim by the way.

        • Kathy Prendergast

          Even if your statistics were correct, which they are not, (I wonder where on earth you got the ridiculous “26% are children”, unless that statistic is counting all the sham “unaccompanied minor” claimants) that still means that 56% percent of these migrants are single men…why? If this were a true “refugee crisis” it wouldn’t look like this. The vast majority of this bunch are economic migrants, regardless of where they’re from. Many of the Syrians and Iraqis, the only ones that could legitimately be said to be from a war zone, were already safely living in Turkey or other ME countries but decided they wanted to go to Europe because life wasn’t cushy enough for them, like the father of that drowned toddler who wanted to go to Germany so he could get free dental work done. And why would I care that the term regressive leftist was invented by a Muslim? I have nothing against Muslims; only against liars and scammers.

            The statistics are correct and were confirmed by Eurostat. The 56% include all men above 18 and so they include married and elderly men, and the percentage of single men must be lower than 56% by a lot. I agree with you that some of the refugees are economic migrants, but the vast majority are indeed genuine refugees. Turkey, Jordan, Egypt and Lebanon already shelter 4 million refugees according to the UN and they cannot afford to shelter more, and so refugees were forced to flee to the sea and head toward Europe. The aunt of the toddler was confirmed as a refugee and is operating her own business in Canada and does’t receive welfare at all. I am glad that you have nothing against Muslims. I also have nothing against Christians, and wish Muslims and Christians would get along without hate, sectarianism and racism.

    But…but…think of all those desperate women and children!

    You bunch of racists, just that little thumbnail sketch shows you who your enemy is and there are hundreds of thousands and millions yet to come. Sickening isn’t it?

    • Maurice Miner

      Islam is a religious and political philosophy, not a “race” as commonly understood and defined.

      There are many “races” that embrace the welcoming arms of Mohammedanism, and it is frankly impossible to be “racist” when discussing the political philosophy.

      You are correct insofar as millions of these vermin are seeking an economic advantage, and yes, it is sickening.

  • Hard Little Machine

    Nah, let them all bring their families in. 90,000 should swell to 450,000.

    • mobuyus

      Why the low-balling of the final estimated numbers? Have you been co-opted by leftists?

  • Liberal Progressive

    The European Union bureaucracies in Brussels need to crack down on the racist Austrian government and show them who is the boss!

  • mobuyus

    Given that all islamic males are gay, there could very well be a few “widows” amongst all those “orphans”.
