It appears that Europe's experiment in mass, unrestricted immigration of Muslim workers is not going terribly well. Reports are leaking out of overwhelmed German hospitals, parents who abandon their children at pharmacies, a father who knifed doctors and nurses at a hospital, open TB. Cholera is also a worry, but don't worry, we're told, because modern sewage systems will prevent its spread. One aid worker is said to have been gang-raped but allegedly kept quiet about it for a while because of politicized peer pressure. Women who go to try to help Muslim immigrants at the Austrian border are berated as "Christian whores." (There's gratitude for you.) And meanwhile, the piles of garbage and human waste grow. (Wanna revise that estimate on the risk of cholera spread, WHO?)
Some of these problems are intrinsic to the insane attempt to allow sudden floods of immigrants from poorer countries into any country all at once. What could be expected but overwhelmed medical systems, the breakdown of order, the spread of disease, and piles of garbage?
Other problems are especially expected from floods of Islamic immigrants--the sense of entitlement, the refusal to allow male doctors to treat women (also mentioned in the above anonymous report from a German doctor), the proneness to violence when doctors are unable to effect a cure, the scornful and ungrateful attitude toward women, even those who are trying to help, the expression of sexualized misogyny in rape.
Anyone naive enough to think that these are the "good Muslim immigrants," from whom Europe need fear no special cultural problems, because they are allegedly fleeing ISIS, should wake up now.
Even aside from what one believes about the proportion of young men among the current "migrants" entering Europe, it would be ridiculous to assume that no jihadists will take advantage of this mass, virtually unrestricted movement of people to enter Europe in that way. It would be remiss for any website that opposes jihad not to point out the grave additional danger of terrorism that Europe is incurring in this way.
Much of Europe seems to have a death wish. Culture watchers on the right have known that for a long time, but this recent wave of uncontrolled immigration seems to represent an acceleration of that death wish.
As usual, the U.S. is protected by an ocean from having quite the same uncontrolled invasion that Europe has. We can keep hoping that this happy accident of geography will save us from our feckless rulers, Democrat and Republican alike. (Jeb Bush, says the story linked above, is all in favor of bringing many thousands of Syrians to the U.S.)
This is all extremely depressing, and it is difficult to know what to say about it except that it is depressing. Trust in God and keep your powder dry. Exercise your second-amendment rights for purposes of personal and home defense. And maybe just occasionally try to convince your more foolishly kind Christian friends that ruining our own house by letting it be overwhelmed by unsustainable immigration is not, in the long run (or even the medium run) a good way to help anybody.
One might also consider these matters relevant in looking at the Republican field of candidates. Yes, it's just one issue, but it's an important and timely one. Who is totally clueless, who is somewhat less clueless, and who is even starting to get it? Above all, don't join in demonizing a candidate, even an inexperienced one, who expresses the opinion that he would prefer not to vote for a Muslim for President.
I don't think that we will ever face the mass insanity that is happening in Europe right now, though I don't want to go out on a limb and bet against it. But as long as Republicans continue to be just as reckless about immigration as their Democrat counterparts, it remains highly likely that the U.S. will continue to harm itself in similar ways, if somewhat more slowly than Europe is doing. And some towns in the U.S. might face these problems sooner rather than later when the Syrian immigration wave really gets started. Will any future Republican President stand up against the ideology that says we must never criticize mass immigration generally or mass Muslim immigration specifically? Or, at least, will such a President not continue and extend those policies? From a political point of view, this remains our best hope.
That and the Atlantic Ocean.
