They are coming, Father Abraham, 300,000 more. And yet western Europe just sits there in deep trouble, wondering how to deal with them. This happened on Thursday:
Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán faced down German Chancellor Angela Merkel ahead of a key migration conference this weekend, using his most explosive arguments yet to rally his center-right political allies behind a tougher response to Europe’s refugee crisis.
“We are in deep trouble,” Orbán said in remarks to the European People’s Party annual congress here, building on comments he had made Wednesday night on Hungarian television. “This is an uncontrolled and unregulated process,” one that threatens democracy because governments did not “get authorization from (citizens) for millions to walk into our continent.” To loud applause from conservative politicians from across Europe, Orbán slammed politicians on both the left and right. He accused left-wing political parties of “importing future leftist voters to Europe” while trying to “hide it behind humanism.”
Orban, who’s become the favorite whipping boy of culturally suicidal western European Leftists, is absolutely right. “Compassion” for the “migrants” is little more than a smokescreen designed — as always with the Left — to mask its real goals. Having seen the chaos unleashed in Britain by the previous Labour government’s deliberate attempt at population replacement, the Germans under Angela Merkel have basically decided on the same thing.
So naturally, they keep coming:
Battling strong winds, driving rain, mud and freezing temperatures, these stunning photographs show a slow trek of thousands of migrants making their way to Europe amid the harsh conditions of the oncoming winter. As one European leader warns the ever growing crisis will see the EU fall apart ‘in weeks‘, tens of thousands of people are continuing to try and reach the Eurozone via the arduous Balkans route.
Tens of thousands of people are trying to reach central and northern Europe via the Balkans, but often have to wait for days in mud and rain at the Serbian, Croatian and Slovenian borders. Slovenia’s premier this weekend warned the European Union that it ‘is weeks away from falling apart’ if the bloc cannot agree on a plan to confront the sudden influx of refugees through the Balkans.
Nine days after Hungary’s move to seal its southern border drove unprecedented migrant flows into tiny Slovenia, Prime Minister Miro Cerar sent out a dramatic call to fellow central and eastern leaders in Brussels for emergency talks. He said: ‘If we don’t find a solution today, if we don’t do everything we can today, then it is the end of the European Union as such. If we don’t deliver concrete action, I believe Europe will start falling apart.’ Since October 17, more than 62,000 migrants have arrived in Slovenia, with some 14,000 still passing through the country on today alone.
Which partly explains the results of the Polish elections over the weekend. Even though Poland has been largely untouched by the invasion of the dar-al-Islam, the Polish electorate — Catholic and politically conservative — just did this:
Poland’s opposition Law and Justice party – conservative and Eurosceptic – has won parliamentary elections. The party is expected to have enough seats to govern alone – something unprecedented in 26 years. Exit polls suggest it got 39% of the vote. Its leader Jaroslaw Kaczynski claimed victory, and the outgoing Prime Minister, Ewa Kopacz of the centrist Civic Platform, admitted defeat.
Europe’s refugee crisis also proved to be a key topic of debate before the election. While the government has agreed to take in 7,000 migrants, opposition parties have spoken out against the move. Mr Kaczynski, 66, was not running as prime minister and instead nominated Ms Szydlo, a relative unknown, as the party’s choice for the post. However, some observers said Mr Kaczynski – the twin brother of Poland’s late president Lech – could take on the top job himself in the months to come.
Last week, Mr Kaczynski was criticised for suggesting migrants could bring diseases and parasites to Poland.
This won’t end well.
