An unexpected, but relatively easy to explain twist to the European immigrant crisis has just occured: The right-wing Prime Minister of Hungary, Viktor Orban, has accused billionaire financier George Soros of seeking to ruin his (Christian) country by backing the resettlement of Muslims, which Orban has staunchly opposed.
If we take into consideration the long-standing US policy of undermining Europe as a worker-friendly entity with a larger economy, Orban’s reaction makes perfect sense. As I recently (again) wrote: the browning — and the Islamization — of Europe are mathematically unavoidable, as is the browning of the rest of the Caucasian world, which constitutes only 16% of the world’s population.
And who better than George Soros knows how to add and subtract? Being totally ignorant in financial matters, I can however speculate with a fair chance of getting it right that Soros is using the same tools that enabled him to become a billionaire to get ahead of the curve in the browning of Europe, for no other reason that it helps weaken the European economy that until recently, with the 2008 economic crisis, has threatened the United States. Not only because of its economic power, but because that has until recently been combined with worker-friendly legislation. France’s new president, Emanuel Macron, a neo-liberal poster child who took an encouraging call from former president Obama just before his election as the neo-liberal standard-bearer, has already proven himself worthy of that name by decreeing draconian changes to the labor law that will make it easier to fire workers — supposedly to combat unemployment!
As if these developments were not enough, Spain flirts with a replay of its 1936 Civil War, as the culturally unique Catalans unsuccessfully trying to break free of Madrid, while a German satirical magazine calls for the assassination of ‘baby Hitler’, the newly elected thirty-one year-old Prime Minister of Austria. Now add to that toxic mix George Soros’s best effort in favor of the old continent.
As reported by RT, according to Michael Vachon, a spokesperson for Soros: “Soros’s actual position on migration is that the international community should provide more support to the developing countries that today host 89 percent of refugees and that Europe should accept several hundred thousand fully screened refugees through an orderly process of vetting and resettlement.”
As I have written consistently, the browning — and the Islamization — of Europe are inevitable, not least because atheism has largely displaced active Christianity, while Islam is the fastest growing religion. Europe should undertake to guide the transformation rather than following either Orban or Soros, by policies that are neither starry-eyed multiculturalism nor an invitation to the Alt-Right.
