Brussels launches new struggle against ‘Afrophobia’

The EU watchdogs have a new favorite enemy: the perpetrators of "Afrophobia". The notion has been at the basis of a resolution adopted by the European Parliament in March in order to afford privileged protection to the "fundamental rights of people of African descent in Europe".

    With propaganda and dirigiste measures, a lot of money has been made available for lobbyists and profiteers to interfere in everyday life and civil liberties – and ultimately to advance the reinforcement of large-scale non-European immigration.

    The agenda has not fallen from the sky either. The resolution follows the tried EU principle, which ex-Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker described so inimitably: “We decide something, put it to the room, and if no one rebels, we continue until there is no going back.”

    In this case, however, someone has noticed what is going on, albeit with some delay. Austrian FPÖ politicians have warned against a plan for the “Africanisation of Europe”.

    The notion of “Afrophobia” signals the direction of the latest political thrust in Brussels. Skepticism about immigration from the African continent should, analogous to similar expressions such as “Islamophobia”, be outlawed and criminalized as outdated and irrational, they believe.

    While citizens are generalized as potential “racists” and regarded with general suspicion, the resolution has justified special rights for an arbitrarily selected immigrant group. And in order to justify this preferential treatment, therefore, the term “structural discrimination” had to be invented.

    The categories are are also mixed up in the process. There is no distinction between long-established, well-integrated and educated citizens of African descent or newcomers unwilling to integrate, not between genuine xenophobia and well-founded reservations against, for example, criminals and social fraudsters, illicit discrimination or narcissistic persecution.

    Instead, by using the usual social-justice vocabulary, the resolution only recognizes vulnerable migrants who are always “victims” and admonish the backward locals who are only “offenders” and subject to far-reaching educational and disciplinary measures.

    The resolution was preceded by a series of hearings on “Afrophobia”, leftist studies on the condition of African migrants, expert groups, EU bodies, working papers and strategy conferences. This process had started long before the migration crisis of 2015.

    In the resolution “Civil Society Organizations” are given an important role to play in combating “racism and discrimination” and calls for funding are multiplied.

    They should also work towards a positive image of African migrants in public and remind Europeans of their “special responsibility” due to colonialism, slavery and exploitation. This implies historical political manipulation and far-reaching interference with freedom of expression and research.

    The resolution of the European Parliament is thus more than a stimulus program for the social industry since its ultimate goal is to break down resistance and barriers to massive immigration from the African continent to Europe.

    “Migrants, refugees and asylum seekers” are lumped together, they should all be allowed to “enter the EU safely and legally”, and “decent housing” must also be ensured, conservative columnist Michael Paulwitz noted.

    The EU’s Fundamental Rights Agency FRA, in order to justify its own existence, is always in need of finding someone that is being discriminated against because its survival in beautiful Vienna depends on it, Nicolaus Fest, an MEP of the AfD and former deputy editor-in-chief of Bild am Sonntag, told Berlin weekly Junge Freiheit.

    This then quickly becomes “Afrophobia” and an “institutional-structural” racism if the FRA is able to find a dark-skinned person to confirm their worst fears.

    “This racism must be combated by privileging Africans and discriminating against whites. Therefore, it needs more ‘social inclusion’, or a thousand promotion measures for colored people; in schools,” Faust explains. “Colonialism then becomes the main topic; and jobs and homes are also preferrably given to people with a darker skin color.”

    Faust says “all this nonsense is then poured into a ‘resolution’ that is then actually accepted by the historically unsuspecting, largely left-wing European Parliament”. It therefore becomes “self-evident that African relatives of allegedly discriminated EU Africans should be guaranteed safe entry”.

    According to Faust, there is no greater enemy to the peoples of Europe than Brussels.

    Germany already receives hundreds of thousands asylum applications every year, with nearly two million people having entered the state upon since 2010, according to government data.

    In addition, thousands of them have returned to Germany multiple times after being deported.

    German newspaper Die Welt am Sonntag cited federal government figures showing total of 28 283 deported individuals that have made at least one more attempt to remain in the country via asylum procedures.

    The official data was revealed after parliamentary questions submitted by AfD party chairman Martin Sichert. The majority of asylum seekers, 22 050, applied for asylum in Germany a second time, while 4 916 made a third attempt.

    And around 1 000 asylum seekers are currently have submitted their fourth application, while for others, 294 in fact, it was their fifth or sixth time.

    Those who received entry bans were jailed for only a few months upon their return, with longer sentences for this transgression are rare.

    According to the German Office of Federal Statistics, some 1,78 million people have entered the country seeking asylum in the last eight years. In 2019, 3 243 return asylum seekers submitted a new application.
