The European migration experiment is failing miserably. Self-declared “refugees” and migrants from Africa and the Middle East are importing their violence, chaos and regressive norms of behavior into formerly harmonious countries all over Western Europe. As Seth J. Frantzman wrote in the Jerusalem Post last December, “They hate the very society they have often chosen to migrate to. Their new society tolerated their intolerance and taught them that this new country provided such unfettered freedom that it should be destroyed.”
For example, while many French people were busy celebrating Bastille
Day – a year after the tragic Islamist massacre in Nice - riots and violence reportedly
broke out on the nights of July 13 and 14 in suburbs of Paris heavily
populated by migrants. A policeman was badly wounded and 897 cars were
burned. Hundreds of individuals were placed in custody.
There was also a riot in the streets of Paris a few days ago by a mob of angry Congolese.
They were infuriated by a scheduled concert at Paris's Olympia music
hall by a Congolese artist thought to be too close to the government of
the Democratic Republic of the Congo they detest. The concert was
cancelled as a result of the clashes and threats of more violence. The
Congolese living in Paris brought their tribal hatreds to the land that
gave them the opportunity to leave such hatreds behind. They abused the
freedoms they were afforded, turning on those freedoms by violently
preventing an artistic performance from taking place.
are far from isolated incidents of migrant violence in Western Europe
this year. Indeed, all is not well for the Western traditions of
pluralism and individual liberties in the multicultural sewer Europe is
fast becoming. The number of vehicular killings, stabbings, shootings,
sexual assaults, riots and car burnings has risen exponentially in
France, the United Kingdom, Germany, Belgium, Sweden, Denmark and
Norway, as the tide of migration has intensified. No-go zones have
multiplied. Free speech is becoming a casualty of hecklers’ veto and
misplaced multicultural sensitivities. Yet Europe continues to admit
even more migrants without any adequate vetting.
lose hope, they risk crossing the Sahara and the Mediterranean because
it is worse to stay at home, where they run enormous risks,” Antonio Tajani, president of the European Parliament, said. “If we don't confront this soon, we will find ourselves with millions of people on our doorstep within five years. Today we are trying to solve a problem of a few thousand people, but we need to have a strategy for millions of people."
A majority of Europeans agree that the waves of immigration into their countries have been getting out of hand. However, for the elitist leaders in Europe,
spearheaded by German Chancellor Angela Merkel, an open borders policy
remains the Holy Grail. Opposing continued mass migration into Europe is
tantamount to hate speech, they believe. Thus, Chancellor Merkel was
overheard last fall on a hot mic asking Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg
what more he planned to do to stop anti-immigrant posts. Facebook is
cooperating with actions to remove comments that it claims "promote
In the Netherlands, the police paid visits to
people using social media to express their anti-mass migration views.
One Dutch man described his encounter with the police. “They asked me to
be careful about my Twitter behavior, because if there are riots, then
I’m responsible,” the Dutch man said. He had tweeted: “The college of
Sliedrecht has a proposal to receive 250 refugees in the coming 2 years.
What a bad plan! #letusresist.” The police told him to watch his tone
because his tweets “may seem seditious.”
Free speech is the
enemy of both elitist governments, which believe they know what is best
for their benighted “subjects,” and of extremists, who believe only they
possess the truth and that the expression of contrary opinions is
heresy. Elitist governments use their instruments of power to suppress
free speech. The extremists use violence and play the race card against
those they consider to be the so-called “oppressors” and their
Leftists who reject the pluralistic norms of
capitalist, democratic Western societies encourage mass migration of
unassimilated individuals from conflicting cultures to destabilize and
then radically transform such democratic societies. Thus, we see twitter
posts such as “We must #EndWhiteness with mass immigration.” And rather
than express empathy with victims of immigrant violence, leftists have
sided with the migrants in opposition to concerns of local citizens
about public safety. This happened, for example, in Sweden a couple of
years ago after an Algerian and a Syrian living in the same migrant
center were jailed for each raping the same Swedish woman on the same
When they are not rioting themselves, such as in
Hamburg earlier this month, left wing activists have also stoked
immigrant violence for their own ends. The red-green axis of leftists
and Islamists is alive and well.
