Europe: “The Era of Liberal Babble”

Europe, so many years after the Cold War, is ideologically divided into a new East and a West. This time, the schism is over multiculturalism. What Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán has termed ‘liberal babble’ continues to govern Western Europe’s response to the challenges that migration and Islamic terrorism have brought, especially personal security.

The Western European establishment considers arming oneself against terrorists, rapists and other ill-wishers outlandish, even in the face of the inability of Europe’s security establishments to prevent mass terrorist atrocities, such as those that took place in Paris at the Bataclan theatre or the July14 truck-ramming in Nice.

The European Union’s reaction to terror has been to make Europe’s already restrictive gun laws even more restrictive. The problem is that this restrictiveness contradicts the EU’s own reports: these show that homicides committed in Europe are mainly committed with illegal firearms.

    Liberalism: living in the babble bubble.

    It all boils down to liberals saying, “We’re virtuous and you’re not — because diversity.”

    They could care less about protecting their own populace or stopping terrorism.
    These politicians only want to increase their grip over the domestic population.
    The terrorists can kill as many of them as they wish, just don’t threaten their power base or their access to public funds.
    In fact, many of these politicians will openly pander to the very same groups that are slaughtering the law abiding citizens.
    We need to make Muslim outreach and photo ops at mosques just as politically toxic as having tea with men in KKK robes.

      You are right, and that is also the sole reason for all the gun control regulations – to ensure the citizens are not a threat to them and their power. That has always been the reason for gun control throughout history.

    Coming to a gun fight without a gun is the difference between a homicide and a suicide.
