PUTIN’S SECRET WEAPON: REFUGEE MIGRATION
The backlash from citizens in Europe over the influx of refugees is already overwhelming. Anti-migrant nationalism is growing rapidly – and whether it is or is not proper, it is completely understandable, considering the circumstances. The residents of several European countries feel abandoned by their leaders, as the welfare of the migrants appears to trump their own. And in most cases this is 100 percent accurate.
The leftist leaders of several EU nations just couldn’t help themselves. Their political correctness demanded they demonstrate to the world how much bigger their hearts were than their brains. And as we know, this demonstration manifested itself in allowing hundreds of thousands of unvetted refugees to pour into Europe.
Anyone with common sense would have predicted that this would backfire, and indeed it has. Now the once-utopian European Union is beginning to fracture. Greece is near anarchy. Hungary is building a razor wire fence to stop the flow of migrants, and France is leveling the Calais “Jungle” refugee camp. Nationalist pressures are beginning to strain relations between EU nations.
In a tit-for-tat maneuver, the French economics minister, Emmanuel Macron, is now warning that if Britain pulls out of the EU, he will scrap the British border controls in Calais and instead allow thousands of migrants to cross the English Channel, thereby transferring the Jungle camp to Kent, England. The patience of British citizens is already being tested, and this may send them over the edge.
Meanwhile thousands upon thousands more refugees are still fleeing the Middle East in an attempt to enter Europe, and reports are that the numbers are actually increasing. Why is this, you ask?
