‘We need them!’ European Commissioner pleads for more migrants

The European Commission presented its reform project on migration policy on Wednesday 23 September. The project provides for a "compulsory solidarity mechanism" which poses a huge problem for many elected officials and European heads of state including Nicolas Bay.

    Bay is a French politician and Member of the European Parliament (MEP). He is a member of the National Rally, which is part of Europe of Nations and Freedom.

    On Wednesday, in plenary session of the European Commission and while the pact on migration and asylum was being presented, Ylva Johansson, the European Commissioner for Home Affairs took the floor. “Immigration is part of what makes our continent prosperous. We have a lot of immigration to the EU. And we need these people, our society is aging. But we also need new avenues for legal immigration,” she declared. She then called on the “European Council and member states to play down immigration policies and laws”.

    Her statements displeased several elected officials and European heads of state, including Nicolas Bay. On Twitter, he posted Ylva Johansson’s entire statement as a warning sign. This is, according to him, “the reality of EU immigration policy through the voice of the Commissioner for Home Affairs”.

    Among the reforms put in place by the Commission on September 23, as France Info pointed out, is a crisis mechanism. It means that if a country finds itself subject to strong migratory pressure and cannot take care of migrants on its own, it can then request that a “compulsory solidarity mechanism” be activated.

    The Commission then puts all the European member states to work and a choice is offered to them: they can welcome migrants or bear the financial cost of their return to their country of origin.

    What happens if a state refuses to welcome or “sponsor” a migrant? Theoretically, Brussels can decide to sanction it.

      Ylva Johansson, the European Commissioner for Home Affairs took the
      floor. “Immigration is part of what makes our continent prosperous. We
      have a lot of immigration to the EU. And we need these people, our
      society is aging.

      Simply a false argument. Europe became unprecedentedly prosperous when it exported migrants, not the other way around. Since the advent of mass-migration into Europe, it has been going downhill on almost every measure, and it’s plain as day that if the process continues, not only will Europe’s decline accelerate, but Europe will cease to exist in anything but name, if even that in the end. Also, clearly, most of the migrants have been redundant at best, often positively (or rather negatively) toxic. The ‘immigration’ the above named nitwit speaks of, even as an ideal, is like a drug-dependency of a worsening junky, who must keep injecting ever more of their ‘fix’ for want of a healthy self-sustaining condition, until the final fatal overdose occurs. If Europe can’t maintain itself then pouring in hordes from alien and hostile climes will not save anything worth saving. And, if mass-immigration is nevertheless ‘needed’ (a dubious enough proposition in the era of advanced AI and robotics, amongst other population-‘saving’ factors), then it ought on all sound grounds to be sourced primarily from European former colonial nations and regions, who are in their own process of ‘replacement’ anyway, and far less unnaturally and perversely so at that.

      The sort of ‘immigration’ the EUrovile liar-traitors promote is simply Afro-Islamization, of the most vital white homeland, refuge, and source on earth, and direct aiding and abetting of the historic and ongoing foes of the West in their quest to not only turn the tables but finish the white West once and for all. Quite other policies than those they promote are entirely possible and warranted, if they just leave off their lying treachery and suicide-genocide for once. They might even find they actually like and benefit by it if they did.


    Social unrest explodes in the Netherlands after Corona curfew

    The HagueSome 240 people were arrested, mostly in Amsterdam, after riots broke out in at least 10 cities across the Netherlands on Sunday evening.

    The EU ignores neutrality, provides funding to undermine political foes

    BrusselsCountries in the EU are theoretically bound to the neutrality obligation in its use of tax revenues: The taxpayer's money must not be used for political purposes. But just as the German government wants to spend 1 billion euros in the next four years on the so-called “fight against the right”, the EU is funding a network of “civil society” NGOs that represent clearly left-wing politics, actively combatting conservative politicians and their parties – Matteo Salvini and Viktor Orban are but two examples.

    Seven dead after Corona vaccination in German old people’s home

    MiesbachThe most important lesson to be drawn from the Corona crisis appears that it has become a great risk to be a retirement home resident. If one is assigned to such an institution, one invariably gives up basic human rights. At first it was "only" the restrictions on freedom of movement and contact with loved ones that the elderly had to endure, but now it is the Corona vaccination, which one can hardly avoid in these custodial institutions.

    Referendum in Switzerland could end government-imposed Covid restrictions

    GeneveSwitzerland will hold a referendum that could stop the government from imposing lockdown measures. The country has not introduced a lockdown like many other European countries, but has instead - like Sweden - mainly emphasized personal responsibility. In terms of the spread of infection and the number of deaths, it is about the same as in Sweden.
