Mediterranean Sea. May 26, 2017. Refugees and migrants aboard the MOAS Phoenix off Crotone, Italy. The refugees and migrants are being transferred to a port in Italy after being rescued at sea by crew members of the Phoenix.
In the aftermath of Hillary Clinton’s State Department destroying Libya
and the ensuing migrant crisis, there are currently open-slave markets
ongoing in the middle-eastern country. The United Nations-backed Libyan
Government of National Accord, or GNA, said Libya “is going through
difficult times which affected its own citizens as well. It is,
therefore, not fair to assume responsibility for the consequences of
this immigration, which everyone unanimously agreed that addressing this
phenomenon exceeds the national capacities. We affirm again that the
practical solution is to address the real reasons that drive people to
leave their home countries, treat them and develop final solutions for
them.” Where is the outrage over modern-day slavery?
2 important things:
a black slave can be bought in Libya for around $400 USD
it is Muslims running the slave trade…is that why the Left are silent about this? I’ve seen this brought up on neutral and right leaning sites but next to nothing on the left leaning sites.
i’m out of polite, out of gentle, out of understanding. i’ve signed each petition, walked in protest, went to marches. i called every representative, emailed, boycotted. i have volunteered every time i could squeeze it in, donated, got the word out, bent my head to pray about it.
i am not polite. i’m fucking desperate. we have done polite and look at how they responded. we all throw up our hands and say “how are we going to get out of this mess!” and i’m promised if i’m polite and wait until we can vote again we’ll surely see a turnaround. just keep your hands to yourself and wait it out. i’m lucky because my life isn’t on the line if i wait four months. i can afford to wait four months.
there are people out there. there are children out there. who can’t afford to wait four months. and we can all act like we’re shocked and scared and not my america but the truth is there’s nothing on this green earth i can do about it. i don’t have the individual power to stop it. i donate my last few dollars and skip lunch for it and bow my head to pray about it and email and call and raise awareness and we’re all watching, watching, complicit because we’re bystanders in this; watching, watching, horrified but unable to stop it.
i’m out of polite. there are children laying on mats on concrete floors and calling that home and you’re worried because when i said “if you think toddler detention centers are legitimate you can burn in hell” it comes off as unfriendly. i didn’t realize that this migrant crisis was about your feelings. also, you can burn in hell. the rest of us are burning ourselves up, because we’re calling, and we’re emailing, and volunteering and god. god. are you listening? because at this point, white-knuckled, on-our-knees, we’re praying.
I think it’s time to start some shit and lose some followers.
With the Brussels bombings, there’s been a sudden surge and bullshit and disinfo flying around because it takes a goddamned bombing that kills three dozen people to get people’s attention these days.. and unfortunately, people only ever invest in these tragedies when their favored political ideology is being made to look bad.
Here’s the uncomfortable truth about Europe, Islam, and the Migrant/Refugee Crisis: It’s a hellish clusterfuck and people and being willfully, and maliciously ignorant for the sake of saving face and virtue signalling. There is such an absurd need to make sure that the Right is never right that many politicians have turned to attacking and slandering anyone who speaks out against the very real problems that have come from allowing hundreds of thousands of unchecked migrants and refugees into these countries.
Many of the countries which were so eager to open their borders extra wide are now desperately trying to get rid of them, paying hundreds of millions just to keep them somewhere while they try to find a way to get them out of the country.. You know why? Because there isn’t a single country in the world which is equipped to handle a sudden influx of tens of thousands of non-native speaking, uneducated, unskilled foreigners! Foreigners whose culture is so undeniably conflicting with Europe’s that they literally needed to be taught not to rape and attack women in the street for walking around in normal clothes, for fuck’s sake!.. and in one case, a teacher of one of those classes was raped by her migrant student anyways.
Which brings me to Brussels.. and Paris.. and the shit that happened to Charlie Hebdo.. and the multiple train bombings.. and Rotherham.. and are you seeing a pattern here yet? People who gladly embrace the label “terrorist” have said repeatedly, in between taking credit for and celebrating all these successful shootings and bombings, that this is what they want to do. That they are going to send in their soldiers with a flood of migrants and they are going to keep attacking until there is no more Europe. That they want to destroy Europe and kill anyone who opposes them.
But I don’t want to make this about attacking Islam. Instead, I want you to understand that even if we could completely separate religion from this whole issue, there are still problems here that people are refusing to address. Problems that are being lost under a tide of idiots screaming “ISLAMAPHOBE” because they would rather prove what an open minded and tolerant person they are by letting Europe suffer.
Every country that has taken in migrants and refugees has seen a spike in crime so huge that authorities have found it easier to crack down on anyone saying anything negative about it, rather than try and stop the constant rapes, robberies, assaults, murders, and destruction. They’ve actually started telling citizens just to stop going out at night or to stay away from certain parts of town. Germany has stopped serving sausages in certain parts of the country because the migrants were so pissed off about the pork products, for fuck’s sake.
At the heart of all of these questionable decisions is this really odd notion that the worst possible outcome is that the Police, or Politicians, or even normal citizens might be labeled as racists, bigots, and Islamophobes. It’s not the suffering that seems to matter, because things have become so muddied, so unbelievably assbackwards, that even when three dozen people get murdered because they had a plane or train to catch, the only thing people want to do is scream at people who disagree with their clearly destructive and ill-conceived notions on how to run a country.
Open borders don’t work. Allowing tens, if not hundreds of thousands of people who will not and cannot assimilate into a country and then spending Billions on them, only for many of them to get fed up and leave is fucking retarded. Greece has been in economic free-fall for the past few years and they are expected to take in and house countless migrants and refugees all while enduring uncontrollable chaos and crime that comes with them.
When there have been repeated attacks that have cost hundreds of innocent lives, you cannot and absolute should not prioritize ideological brownie points over the safety and stability of entire countries. Attempting to combat “islamophobia” shouldn’t even be on the list of shit to-do in this situation.
Governments are beholden to their own citizens, first and foremost. They have an non-negotiable duty to protect their citizens and do everything in their power to ensure that their well-being and their safety is not compromised. No civilized country in the world should be expected to shoulder a burden that destroys it’s cities, destabilizes it’s economy, and gets its own citizens killed ESPECIALLY when they know that such a threat is very real and has happened repeatedly over the past several years.
No. It’s not fair to all of the refugees whose homes have been blown up in the war. No, it’s not fair to the sick children and the innocents who simply want a better life. It’s a shitty situation and a lot of people who don’t deserve this kind of treatment out of life are getting it.
But you know what? It’s not fair that innocent citizens have to fear for their lives and deal with their beloved towns and cities being torn apart because some jackass politicians thought that making themselves look good and their opponents look bad was more important than keeping their countries stable and safe.
I am an illustrator and I have been collecting and illustrating the proverbs of White Middle Class Liberals for a year now and finally compiled them in to an Alphabetical Anthology. It functions as an educational tool and a fun way to clap back at every day crackery. if any one is interested in it you can find it here.
Wow. So she’s really going to double down on this despite all the obvious issues it’s causing? Sure, Islam isn’t the only source of terror but it’s definitely the most predominant one by a country mile. All of this immigration is also a huge cost to the German tax payer and has brought with it a sizable increase in crime. Just letting in even more doesn’t seem like the best idea.
Mediterranean Sea. Off the Libyan coast. July 28, 2016. Left Alone. An 11-year-old girl (left) from Nigeria, comforts her younger brother aboard a rescue boat after they had been picked up from an overcrowded dinghy en route to Italy, about 23 kilometres north of Sabratha, Libya. Their mother had died in Libya, after crossing the Sahara.
According to the EU border agency Frontex, arrivals of refugees in Italy from North Africa hit an all-time high of 181,000 in 2016. UNICEF said that some 25,800 of those were unaccompanied children.
