Much has been written about the unchecked influx of migrants into Europe recently. As the EU promotes the warm, fuzzy, “inclusive” policies that are overwhelming countries with immigrants, some of those countries are bluntly starting to say, “no more.” At the same time, other countries seem to be quietly preparing for…something… without being quite so forthcoming about the event for which they are readying themselves.

Millions of refugees and asylum seekers, primarily from Syria, Afghanistan, Iraq, Nigeria, Pakistan, and Somalia are flowing into Europe, largely unchecked. This is because of a welcoming “open door” policy promoted by German Chancellor Angela Merkel back in 2015. Despite the backlash from Europeans, Merkel says she has “no regrets.”

But some overwhelmed countries have decided that enough is enough. They cite the refugees’ refusal to assimilate, increasing crime statistics (particularly against women), and no-go zones in which the migrants have banded together and created areas in which Europeans are not welcome.

The European Union is so displeased about this that they’ve taken 3 of their member countries to court for refusing to “share the burden of hosting migrants.”

I don’t have a crystal ball, but I wonder if we could see this disagreement becoming a catalyst for the dissolution of the European Union.


Austria is currently conducting exercises at their borders in preparation for a wave of 80,000 migrants expected to attempt to cross through soon. Zero Hedge reports:

Just a few weeks after the opening of a new “Balkan route” of travel through Albania, Montenegro, Bosnia and Croatia, Austrian forces will conduct border-security exercises on June 25 in the border town of Spielfeld in preparation for a wave of 80,000 migrants expected to travel through the route to Western and Central Europe, reports Kronen Zeitung, Austria’s most widely-circulated newspaper.

Taking part in the exercise will be between 600 and 1,000 members of the riot police, “Puma” border squad and Federal Army will participate in the exercise…

…”We must also be prepared for the case that in a sudden large migratory flow, the border protection measures in these friendly countries no longer help,” said Interior Minister Herbert Kickl, adding “We also show that we are serious. There will be no registration and wave-taking with us, but a real defensive attitude.” (source)


Austria’s neighbor, Slovenia, has also taken steps to staunch the flow of migrants. Back in 2015, they began building a razor-wire fence along their border with Croatia after Hungary closed its borders and 180,000 migrants were redirected through the country of only 2 million people.

Slovenia began erecting a razor-wire fence at its border with Croatia on Wednesday to stem the inflow of migrants, as winter closes in and countries to the north tighten their own border controls.

A convoy of army trucks carrying barbed wire and construction equipment arrived in the border town of Veliki Obrez at dawn on Wednesday. Soldiers rolled out the wire along the Slovenian bank of the Sotla River, which forms part of the 400-mile border with Croatia…

…Though the new fence threatens to block the route again just as winter is approaching, migrants have largely been able to find their way around such obstacles. (source)


Hungary has been adamant since the beginning that they would not be taking in refugees and migrants. Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban has defended his country’s refusal. He said:

…the European Union’s migration policies threaten the “sovereignty and cultural identity” of Hungary, in an interview published Monday.

“We don’t see these people as Muslim refugees. We see them as Muslim invaders,” he told the German daily Bild newspaper…

…Orban also rejected the idea that Hungary should be open to accepting people from majority-Muslim countries, saying his country “doesn’t want to be forced.”

“We believe that a large number of Muslims inevitably leads to parallel societies, because Christian and Muslim society will never unite,” Orban told the paper.

“Multiculturalism is only an illusion,” he added. (source)


Poland has also refused to take in migrants under the 2015 EU ruling, right alongside Hungary.

“In agreeing to take in refugees, the [previous government] put a ticking bomb under us,” Interior Minister Mariusz Błaszczak told reporters in Brussels. “We’re defusing that bomb.”

…The reason given is that Muslim migrants could be a problem for Poland’s homogenous society.

Kaczyński reiterated his antipathy toward refugees in an interview with the Gazeta Polska Codziennie newspaper published Monday, warning that Poland “would have to completely change our culture and radically lower the level of safety in our country.” He also said that Poland “would have to use some repression” to prevent “a wave of aggression, especially toward women” on the part of asylum seekers.

Błaszczak warned that EU pressure on Poland to accept refugees “is a straight road to a social catastrophe, with the result that in a few years Warsaw could look like Brussels.” (source)

Czech Republic

There’s strong anti-migrant sentiment in the Czech Republic. So strong, in fact, that a recent poll showed that 94% of Czechs wanted to deport ALL the refugees.

 According to an opinion poll, conducted by the Focus agency, 78 percent respondents demand that the guarding of Czech borders should be re-introduced, even if this means limiting the free movement of European citizens. 87 percent of respondents have said that the refugee crisis is a large problem for the Czech Republic. 94 percent of Czech respondents are convinced that the European Union should be deporting all refugees. (source)

Although they were given a quota of 1600 refugees that they were required to take in by the EU last year, they refused to accept more than 12.

Italy and Malta

Italy recently made news when they turned away a ship carrying 629 refugees. Italy’s newly elected interior minister Matteo Salvini kept his campaign promises and denied permission for the humanitarian ship Aquarius to dock at an Italian port. Malta also refused to take in the ship, despite the fact that they had run out of food.

The UN had called on Malta and Italy to immediately allow the boat to dock, describing the situation as “an urgent humanitarian imperative”.

The EU and the bloc’s biggest member state Germany made similar pleas.

“The priority of both the Italian and Maltese authorities should be ensuring these people receive the care they need,” European Commission spokesman Margaritis Schinas told reporters, calling for a “swift resolution”.

But Salvini refused to back down.

“Saving lives is a duty, turning Italy into a huge refugee camp is not. Italy is done bending over backwards and obeying, this time THERE IS SOMEONE WHO SAYS NO,” he wrote on Twitter followed by the hashtag #closethedoors. (source)

Spain agreed to accept the ship, and Malta provided them with food and water to make the journey, still holding fast that they could not dock.


While not flat-out refusing entrance to refugees, Denmark began publicly discouraging would-be immigrants in 2015.

The Danish government responded to the growing humanitarian crisis with a barely veiled warning to migrants in Lebanon not to come to the prosperous Nordic country.

Danish newspaper advertisements highlighted the stringent regulations and constraints that await migrants: It can take five years to attain permanent residency; there are tough requirements on learning Danish; those who are granted temporary residency permits will not have the right to bring over family members in the first year after they arrive; and recent changes in the country have slashed welfare benefits for them by 50 percent. (source)

Their government website says:

Denmark receives fewer asylum seekers per capita than our neighbour countries and other European countries that are comparable to Denmark, and we also grant asylum to fewer of them, if you compare each country of orgin separately….

…The fact that a country receives many asylum seekers is also linked to the country’s geographical location and how consistently the country takes fingerprints and registers arrivals (e.g. Italy, Greece, Malta and Hungary) and does not necessarily reflect where the asylum seekers wish to claim asylum. (source)


By nature of geography, Greece has ended up with an overwhelming number of asylum seekers. It was supposed to be a situation in which the migrants were accepted into Greece, processed, and then sent elsewhere across the EU based on “quotas.” But a lot of the migrants actually refused to leave, leading to hard feelings among Greeks who are still struggling after the economic collapse of their country. In case you’re wondering why they had hard feelings, here’s a glimpse into the workings of the mind of the mayor of the Greek city of Livadia, Giota Poulou:

Citizens of Livadia and elsewhere in Greece were “living in the limits of poverty”. It was “inconceivable” for them to see that refugees would have heating in their houses, when some of them did not have heating themselves.

“We told them we wanted to host the refugees based on solidarity and to offer them humane living conditions,” Poulou says. (source)

But after 3 years of shouldering more than their fair share of the burden, Greece has finally stood up, refusing to take back refugees that Germany wanted to return to them.


Slovak Prime Minister Robert Fico refused to accept the EU’s quotas back in 2015, stating that the refugees didn’t want to go there anyway.

“Migrants arriving in Europe do not want to stay in Slovakia. They don’t have a base for their religion here, their relatives, they would run away anyway. Therefore I think the quotas are irrational,” he said. (source)

And they’ve maintained their stance, backing Italy’s recent refusal to admit the boatload of asylum seekers.

How is this going to end?

I’m not completely unsympathetic to the plight of those who want to leave countries in the Middle East and North Africa that have been bombed and droned beyond recognition. NATO has been “freeing” the heck out of them for decades, and as these viral photos show, there isn’t much left for people there. We have to accept the fact that interventionist foreign policies have had a large hand in creating this problem.

This being said, it’s lunacy to accept an influx of migrants who have no intention of assimilating into the culture of their host countries. It’s sheer madness to call it “racist” to prosecute immigrants for raping the women of your country due to cultural differences. It is the height of stupidity to allow outsiders to take over “zones” of your home country in which your police cannot maintain order.

This doesn’t mean asylum seekers should be abused and treated like animals. That leaves us at risk of losing our own humanity. But, it means that the world needs to employ some common sense and prevent this situation from worsening.

France has a new zero-tolerance policy “for the illegal occupation of public space” and although they haven’t squelched migration, they certainly seem to be paying more attention after a barrage of terrorist attacks that have been largely the work of Islamic migrants. And while Sweden hasn’t outright said they’re putting a stop to things, recent events make me wonder if that’s what is coming. The sad thing is, like the Trojan war, they’ve reached the crisis point at which they’re going to be forced to defend their countries from the inside.

That’s not multiculturalism.

That’s suicide.

  • My Aunt was a teacher in Denmark. She retired because the school would not support her after a “migrant” boy in her class claimed she was unfit to teach him because she was a women. There are no go zones in Denmark also. I have not been back to Denmark since 1978, but my mother was there about two years ago. She says the immigrant problem is bad there. There are classes given to the migrants on how to get more welfare money. In Denmark you get more money for having a dog. Yes it is very socialistic. I know they are trying to stop the flow of migrants there. They are also looking at passing a burka ban, but it has no teeth. A fine after the third of fourth warning. The only one who will suffer will be the women. I can see the men refusing to let their wives or daughters out.

  • As an American teacher in elementary school I was denied a teaching position at Adams Elementary in the San Antonio school district because I didn’t speak Spanish even though it wasn’t required. My rights were violated but I let it go. When I did get a position at a different school district in San Antonio, TX, I was informed often by the students that they didn’t have to listen to me because I was white and their parents were just as strident in their hate. Multiculturalism, diversity, has done nothing but destroy the teaching institutions across America and much of the Western world. It needs to be countered and stopped before it kills us. It will lead to unqualified people being certified to operate on you, treat you for illnesses, handle your money, direct plane travel, and refuse to give your children a real education. Do you really want morons to control your life just because they are diverse? That’s not ignorant, that’s stupid.

    • My dad retired from the military and got a job at the health dept. in San Antonio. When asked if he was bilingual he answered yes. Later they wanted him to translate some spanish, but he pointed out his second language was Danish and not Spanish. They never asked him what his second language was. Being married to a Dane should of given them a clue.

      There is a good reason the homeschooling community is growing. People want their children educated and not indoctrinated. My nephew goes to a private school. His mother says if she can’t afford to send him there later, then he will also be home schooled.

  • Well,what do you know about that?It’s about time EU countries stood up to their socialist regime,and put their feet down when it comes to unchecked immigration into their particular countries.They see what the U.S. has done about this,and are taking pages out of our playbook and applying it to their individual countries.They have had enough of the terrorism that comes with unchecked immigration,just like the U.S. has.Good on all of them.

  • Nice and subtle, Sammy. We like it! As you say, (((Who))) benefits?
    Could it be someone with a pathological hatred for the White /European race and will do ANYTHING and EVERYTHING they can to destroy it?
    (((Who))) could that be?
    I don’t know… (((Who)))?

  • The problem isn’t the migrants but the sociopaths that rule us who attack countries in the middle east, starting with the yankees endlessly spreading chaos around the world with the help in this instance of the european vassals who are then expected to welcome the refugees whose world has been destroyed : no home, no job, casualties among family and friends, poverty, fear, anger, no hope in the future, their religion demonized, and then forced to leave their homeland because our sociopath governments have bombed them, to go in what they would consider a sodome et gomorrhe land.
    Who in their sane mind would expect them to be willing to integrate? if it did happen to me, i’d probably seek revenge for a while, I’d be traumatized, afraid, full of anger and I wouldn’t be “grateful” to be welcomed in a tent and parked like an animal, and it’s only human.
    Let us tell our government to stop spreading chaos and misery let us refuse to pay our taxes that finance their wars, and then we might have a right to complain about the “wave” of refugees, until then I believe our only right is to zip it, because we’ve done nothing to stop those f… sociopaths.

    • Agree wholeheartedly with your post, except for the “migrants” part. You’re in the US I reckon from your PC portrayal of these migrants? Then taking your perspective, I’d understand and subscribe to everything you say.

      But if you live in one of the European nations under attack, you’d have acknowledged already some twenty years ago that it really matters what kind of “migrants” are being forced upon us over here: muslim migrants (since the ’70s, see my other comment in this thread). One doesn’t have to be familiar with Islamic doctrine re: so-called “unbelievers,” though it would help of course, just one honest look at our nations will suffice to see what’s been going on all these decades in “Americanized” Western-Europe: rollout of the Cult of Diversity (US tm) and political correctness, destabilization by specific “weapons of mass migration,” combined with the dissolution of national borders. So for you people in the US the problem indeed isn’t so much the migrants because you don’t reap the devastating cultural consequences of neocon Washington’s global wars. That’s why for now, you can afford to paint sentimental pictures of poor victimized migrants and turn a blind eye to their effect upon European nations. For us in Europe, the two problems, i.e. the forced association with a certain kind of “migrants” and their destabilizing effect upon our societies AND the US wars are closely intertwined.

      Just my 2 (euro)cts, while they’re still worth something 😉

      All the best from Amsterdam,

  • ps. but of course, it’s easier to blame the weak and miserable one who’s lost everything, than tackle the real problem

  • Millions of refugees and asylum seekers… are flowing into Europe, largely unchecked. This is because of a welcoming “open door” policy promoted by German Chancellor Angela Merkel …Merkel says she has “no regrets.”

    Merkel is just a toady to the globalist elite puppet masters. She is doing their bidding. The elite (primarily banksters) are the ones behind all of the massive hoards of refugees into Europe and other Western nations (such as the U.S. ). The reason is to bring about the total collapse of Western culture and their economies. Then they will bring in a New World Order by means of the UN using UN Agenda 21/2030 as the plan to enslave humanity worldwide. That is what is going on, in a nut shell. The surprising thing is, most governments are on board with UN Agenda 21. 179 nations signed onto it including Russia, China, UK, USA, France, Germany, Sweden, Italy, Japan, India, South Africa, Israel, Saudi Arabia, Canada, Mexico, Brazil, Turkey, ….you name it.

  • Good article from someone who apparently managed to escape the rampant PC and multiculturalism in the US, that have wreaked havoc in Europe for decades on end as part of the post-war mixed bag of “Americanization” of our cultures, especially in Western-Europe (that’s why countries not under post-war US influence still display better immunity against the US imported Cult of Diversity).

    So just to make sure we understand each other across the Atlantic Divide:

    “We have to accept the fact that interventionist foreign policies have had a large hand in creating this problem. This being said, it’s lunacy to accept an influx of migrants who have no intention of assimilating into the culture of their host countries.

    Yes, you (as Americans) have to accept that for all intents and purposes, you live in NeoConistan. US geopolitics created the invasion that for some reason (globalist controlled demolition of the still diverse European nations, traditions and cultures) the European nations have been forced to accept and accommodate .

    Would be another matter if all of these unassimilable Muslim “refugees” went straight to one state in the US, say Maryland, for you people to get some feel of the devastating consequences.

    So as far as “the West” is concerned there is no “we”. Whether you like it or not, you’re part of neocon Washington creating this mess and there’s us, people of the European nations being invaded. Your responsibility as true Americans is to splinter centralized power in the US, and ultimately dissolve this bloody “Union”, like it is our responsibility over here in the European nations to demolish the horrid mirror image of the US in Brussels. Would give peace and prosperity at least a chance..

    Cheers from Amsterdam,

  • It took seventeen centuries, 1,700 years, to push non-European ‘nations/cultures’ out of Europe. The Ottoman Empire made it to the gates of Vienna before being pushed back. The Ottoman Empire finally collapsed during WWI losing it’s grip on Eastern Europe. Before that Europeans were slaves to the Turks. It and other regions of that world were empowered, brought back to life, when Americans started to buy their oil.
    Then, there were the Mongols Invasions of Europe.

    The Eastern part Europe has continually saved Europe from extinction yet are considered ‘slavs’, a lesser people, by Western Europe. They forget who saved their butt many times over. (An example of the division, the ‘Great Schism’, that exists beneath the surface still is how while I was in public school it was taught that the American Inventor Thomas Edison was considered a hero yet it was the European Inventor Nikola Tesla who until recently was ignored. Would America and the rest of world as we know have done so well with DC current? Isaac Newton and Johann Wolfgang von Goethe illustrate the two mindsets in Europe. Perhaps there are two Europes?)

    And now East Europe has to save ‘Europe’ again. At least themselves.

    Paraphrased Steely “Dan Boston rag”,

    “Bring back the Austrian-Hungarian Empire
    Tell all your buddies that it ain’t no drag
    Bring back the Austrian-Hungarian Empire rag”

    • i just want to thank you as a german. its a sick thing merkel did. i will pray that you all save europe and replace these criminal leaders handing us over to islamic hordes.

  • Fact: The population of Africa, Central America and the Islamic World will double by 2050.
    Fact: Immigration and refugee law was written in the 1950s when the global population was than half today, and the definition of ‘refugee’ was much more stringent.
    Fact: Sexual deviance, HIV positive, at risk of capital punishment for crimes, need for expensive medical care, family problems, and poverty are now legal grounds for claiming refugee status in a developed Western country.
    Fact: Environmental degradation from overpopulation is rendering failed states uninhabitable.
    Fact: Invading someone else’s country in pursuit of ‘a better life’ is now defended by the UN as a basic human right.
    Fact: The desire to live in a stable society within secure borders is under universal attack as bigotry and racism.
    Fact: The democracies of the West have absolutely no clue how to deal with this.

    When the lifeboat will sink with 50 aboard, and a hundred are in the water, what do you do?
    Fact: All answers are not easy and emotionally satisfying ones.
