Sweden Will Not Take Refugees from Greek Camp Fire

Invasion of Europe news….

Well! Well! Have the Swedes finally had enough of the joys of diversity?

It seems that the land that Bernie loves is waking up to the horrors they have created by welcoming refugees from Africa and the Middle East who now refuse to settle down to being good little Swedes.

Before I get to the latest on a ‘canary in a coal mine’ country I have followed for at least ten years, be sure to check in from time to time at Borderhawk.

Right now we are so focused on the presidential contest here in America that we might be losing sight of the continued decline of Europe as migrants continue to storm its borders.

For specifically on Europe, here is some of what you can learn at Borderhawk today.

 

This story about Sweden caught my eye:

‘No more migrants’ – Sweden changes its asylum policy

Sweden, a country with one of the most liberal asylum policies in the world, is drastically changing its attitude towards migrants.

 

Although the country will provide material aid to Greece, it has decided not to accept any refugees from the burned Moria camp or other Greek islands, unlike Germany, which has agreed to take in 1,500. Sweden has thus joined Austria and the Visegrád Four countries of Hungary, Poland, Czechia, and Slovakia, which refuse to accept migrants from the camp, writes Czech news portal Novinky.

It is not clear whether the change of course in asylum policy concerns only the problem of relocating the 12,500 people from the destroyed Greek Moria camp, or whether Sweden is changing its approach to migration in general. The fact is, however, that the topic of migration dominated the 2018 Swedish elections, and Prime Minister Stefan Löfven is now under pressure. As Swedish media points out, his minority government coalition with the Green Party is the weakest in 70 years.

In 2015, Sweden recorded over 160,000 asylum applications, which was the highest number per capita in Europe. Sweden, along with Germany, was one of the most sought-after destinations for refugees. At the time, the country was proud of its liberal approach.

“My Europe does not build walls,” said Prime Minister Stefan Löfven at the time.

Oh, how the times have changed….

After five years, the country faces a dramatic increase in crime and failures in its integration efforts.

“If migration is so strong that integration is no longer successful, we risk further problems,” said Prime Minister Löfven last week.

Sweden struggles with the spread of gang-related crime in socially disadvantaged suburbs. For example, since the beginning of this year, 27 people have died during the shootings between criminal organizations. Almost all the victims were young men and members of migrant gangs, wrote the German newspaper Frankfurter Rundschau daily, which writes that the growth in clan violence has “shifted the discourse in the country”.

By the way, I began following Sweden more carefully years ago when one snippy little Open Borders commenter told me repeatedly that we should be like Sweden when it came to ‘welcoming’ refugees.  Hmmmm……

Banksy Boat Founders in Mediterranean, Reminds Us that Invasion of Europe is Ongoing

Invasion of Europe news…..

First off, I wanted to know who the h*** is Banksy?

Banksy tribute to George Floyd. His ‘art’ pays for ‘rescue’ ships.

Turns out he is an anonymous British street artist who is apparently rolling in dough—enough dough to fund a vessel that will bring more invaders to Europe nevermind any silly little lockdown (what pandemic?) that keeps you from visiting Europe!

Editor: By the way, I guess my August recess is over.  Back to work!

From the BBC yesterday:

Migrant rescue: UN urges help as 200 taken off Banksy rescue boat

 

The UN Refugee Agency says almost 400 refugees and migrants rescued by three ships in the Mediterranean must be allowed to disembark safely.

A joint statement issued with the International Organization for Migration said it was a “humanitarian imperative to save lives”.

Italy’s coastguard evacuated 49 people from an overloaded rescue vessel funded by British artist Banksy.

Watch some of the rescue here:

 

Another rescue boat SeaWatch 4 later took the remaining 150 on board.

The crew of the Louise Michel had earlier tweeted a call for immediate assistance. European authorities had not responded adequately, they said. Sea Watch 4 said late on Saturday it was now carrying 350 people who needed to disembark as soon as possible.

Chris Grodotzki, part of the Sea Watch 4 rescue team, told the BBC the people it picked up were “sea sick, they showed signs of fuel burns, they were disorientated, dehydrated”.

He said the situation on board was currently “stable” but that the vessel would not be able to carry that number of people for a long period of time.

“The decks are stuffed,” he said. “People are crammed together.”

[….]

The UNHCR and the IOM said the lack of a deal on a regional landing system could not be an excuse to deny vulnerable people safe harbour.

[….]

According to UN data, 443 people have died or have gone missing trying to cross the Mediterranean from north Africa so far in 2020.

Slightly more than 40,000 have arrived in Europe by sea during the same period.

So what lucky country will be getting this latest batch?  We will be watching.

Sigh, don’t we all miss Matteo Salvini who briefly slowed the invasion.

Citizens on Italian Island Continue to Suffer Seven Years After Pope Invites Migrants

Invasion of Europe News…..

It was seven years ago, in the summer of 2013, when Pope Francis made his first official trip outside of Rome after becoming the head socialist honcho of the Catholic Church.

I reported his triumphant arrival on the island of Lampedusa to welcome the mass movement of migrants to Europe and to pray for the invaders safety—a story that is disappearing down the memory hole.

Pope lectures on Lampedusa

 

See what Lampedusa, a former tourist destination, has become (hat tip: Dragon’s Lair):

From the RAIR Foundation:

‘EXCREMENT EVERYWHERE’: ITALIAN OFFICIALS IGNORE WOMAN’S PLEA TO REMOVE SQUATTING, DOG-EATING ISLAMIC MIGRANTS FROM HER PROPERTY (VIDEO)

A video translated by RAIR Foundation USA reveals a distraught woman in Lampedusa, Italy complaining about illegal migrants squatting on her land even after she repeatedly tries to report the problem to authorities. In addition to the “mattresses,” “bottles of alcohol,” and “excrement everywhere,” Rosy Matinais explains that the Muslim migrants have eaten all of her animals, including dogs, with the exception of pigs.

Ms. Matinais, a farmer who lives off the crops on her land, earns her living from raising farm animals. “They have eaten chickens, the goats, the dogs,” she said. “I can’t have any more animals. I only have pigs.” The illegal migrants ate four of her dogs by skinning them and grilling them, she explained.

According to Italian newspaper ilgiornale.it, her father purchased the property on the island in 1967. Lampedusa, Italy, at the southernmost part of Italy, has become an epicenter for the socialist-driven illegal migrant invasion. The tiny island, an Italian tourist destination, has a population of about 6,000. There have been times when the migrants outnumbered the citizens. Socialist Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte “reversed [former Deputy Prime Minister Matteo] Salvini’s immigration stance when he came to power,” as reported at RAIR.

[….]

Hundreds of migrants have been landing daily in this beautiful Southern Italian coastal town that survives on tourism. Rosey and her native Italians have been failed by left-wing politicians pushing open border policies at all costs. Not only are these elected leaders turning a deaf ear to the unspeakable problems citizens are facing but they smear anyone who goes public with their stories.

More here including a video.

I’ve wondered over the years whether Americans might wake up (nevermind more serious issues) once they understood how Muslims treat dogs.

Oh, and by the way, the Southern Poverty Law Center has targeted RAIR, gave it a stamp of disapproval, so therefore you should visit the site every chance you get!

Ambassador to Germany? Make Macgregor Secretary of State!

“They’re coming to benefit to consume and to establish themselves inside other people’s countries with the goal of eventually turning Europe into an Islamic state.”

(Ret. Col. Douglas Macgregor on the invasion of Europe)

 

According to news accounts in the last week or so, the President has signaled that he is considering nominating Retired Army Col. Douglas Macgregor for Ambassador to Germany.

As you might expect the Leftwing media is going crazy over his views on immigration that he has made crystal clear in interviews in recent years, including on Tucker Carlson’s show.

***Update*** Jewish groups join CAIR in demanding Macgregor’s name be withdrawn.  So watch, it will be.

CNN went digging and found this treasure trove.

German ambassador pick disparaged immigrants and refugees, called for martial law at US-Mexico border

(CNN)President Donald Trump’s nominee to become the US ambassador to Germany has a history of making xenophobic and racist comments about immigrants and refugees in both Germany and the US.

Retired Army Col. Douglas Macgregor, a decorated combat veteran, author and frequent guest on Fox News, claimed that Muslim migrants were coming to Europe “with the goal of eventually turning Europe into an Islamic state.”

He criticized Germany for giving “millions of unwanted Muslim invaders” welfare benefits rather than providing more funding for its armed services.

Macgregor’s newly unearthed comments come as the Trump administration announced it will withdraw nearly 12,000 troops from bases in Germany. The decision to remove troops from Germany was slammed by Republicans, Democrats and former senior military officials, who said the move would benefit Russia.

CNN’s KFile reviewed dozens of radio and television interviews with Macgregor and found he often demonized immigrants and refugees.

He warned Mexican cartels were “driving millions of Mexicans with no education, no skills and the wrong culture into the United States, placing them essentially as wards of the American people.” He repeatedly advocated to institute martial law at the US-Mexico border and “shoot people” if necessary.

[….]

“The Germans, thanks to us, don’t feel obligated to defend themselves. And the President has simply said, ‘look, why should the American taxpayer defend you if you aren’t willing to defend yourself?'” Macgregor said in 2018.

Macgregor’s criticisms of Germany extended to its immigration policies. He said, “These people are not coming to assimilate and become part of Europe.

They’re coming to benefit to consume and to establish themselves inside other people’s countries with the goal of eventually turning Europe into an Islamic state. That’s a bad thing for the West. It’s a bad thing for Europeans,” said Macgregor in a radio interview in June 2016.

[….]

He lamented in an interview posted in 2015 that the European Union provided “very luxurious and extremely expensive welfare” benefits to Muslim refugees during the height of the global migrant crisis and that “these people are not coming to assimilate or become Europeans–quite the opposite. They’re coming to take over whatever they can get.”

He further attacked the German military and government in 2018 for having “practically no armed forces” and instead spending money on “unwanted Muslim invaders.”

There is much more, see here.

Thanks so much to CNN for helping to identify an American patriot who tells the unvarnished truth.

By the way, to hear the Left tell it, Trump is on his way out, so why worry about an Ambassador who they assume would only be on the job for a few months?

This post is archived in my ‘Invasion of Europe’ file where I have chronicled exactly what Macgregor says is happening for the last ten years.

Red Cross: Expect Huge Wave of Migrants When Borders Open, Vaccine Arrives

“We should not be surprised if there is a massive impact on migration in the coming months and years.”

(Jagan Chapagain, head of the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies)

Last week the head of the International Red Cross made news when he predicted a huge new wave of migrants/refugees attempting to break into Europe (and elsewhere) driven by hunger at home and the promise of a shot to magically make the Chinese Virus go away.

He was primarily focusing on predictions for Europe, but it would all surely apply to our US borders as well.

See my post at ‘Frauds and Crooks’ this morning about measures the Dems would like to put in place to hamstring any efforts to curtail migration.  You can expect those to be on the front burner if the President loses to Joe Biden in November and the House and Senate are controlled by radical Dems.

Coronavirus crisis could spark ‘massive’ new migration: Red Cross

The devastating economic toll the coronavirus crisis is taking around the world could spark huge waves of fresh migration once borders reopen, the head of the Red Cross warned in an interview.

Jagan Chapagain, head of the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC), told AFP he was deeply concerned about the secondary effects of the pandemic.

Jagan Chapagain

“Increasingly we are seeing in many countries the impacts on the livelihoods and the food situation,” he said in an interview at IFRC’s headquarters in Geneva late on Wednesday.

The pandemic and the lockdowns and border closures imposed to halt the spread of the virus have been destroying livelihoods around the planet and are expected to drive many millions more into poverty.

Many people are already faced with the choice of risking exposure to the novel coronavirus or going hungry, Chapagain said, warning that the desperation being generated could have far-reaching consequences.

“What we hear is that many people who are losing livelihoods, once the borders start opening, will feel compelled to move,” he said.

“We should not be surprised if there is a massive impact on migration in the coming months and years.”

 

More migration forced on people by desperate circumstances, he said, will result in numerous “tragedies along the way”, including more deaths at sea, human trafficking and exploitation.

[….]

Chapagain, a Nepali humanitarian who took over as IFRC Secretary-General in February, also voiced concern that perceived health inequalities in the face of the pandemic might also provoke a rise in migration.

“People could feel that there is a better chance of survival on the other side of the sea,” he said, adding that another major factor would be “the availability of vaccines”.

The World Health Organization is spearheading a push to try to ensure that any coronavirus vaccine developed be deemed a “global public good”, to be made available in an equitable manner across the globe. [My personal guess is that there won’t be a vaccine anytime soon.—ed]

But the United States and others are racing to secure stocks of promising vaccine candidates, and many fear that wealthy nations and groups might gain access to the jabs first.

“If people see that the vaccine is say, for example, available in Europe but not in Africa, what happens? People want to go to a place where vaccines are available,” Chapagain said.

Changing the subject!

Although I am continuing to post here at RRW, I believe google and others have limited the number of readers who find this blog as Tucker Carlson reported is happening, see here.

Somehow they have not discovered ‘Frauds and Crooks’ yet, so a good number of new readers are finding it.  That is why, a post, like the one I wrote yesterday about the Somali refugee wanted on kidnapping and possible murder charges, is posted there.

It could also be that my recent lack of interest in posting at Facebook and Twitter has slowed RRW‘s readership.
