From the New York Times:

In Border Crisis, Europe’s Unsavory Migration Deals Come Home

Europe has long paid other nations to keep refugees away from its borders. Now, Belarus wants something, too, and has brought migrants right to Europe’s door to get it.

By Max Fisher
Nov. 12, 2021

In one sense, the border crisis between Poland and Belarus is a tit-for-tat geopolitical conflict in which refugees and migrants just happen to be the weapons.

But aren’t refugees and migrants the glorious future of Europe? How can they be used as weapons? Are you saying they are … undesirable?

Belarus, in May, forced down a civilian airliner to arrest a dissident on board. The European Union, as punishment, imposed economic sanctions on Belarus. Now, in apparent retaliation, Belarus is granting visas to thousands of Middle Easterners and driving them to the borders of Poland, Latvia and Lithuania, all E.U. member states. Those countries must then either process them — or allow them to freeze at the border, which has so far been their preference.

Geopolitical conflict is the framing that many E.U. officials are going with.

“This is a war in which civilians and media messages are the ammunition,” Poland’s prime minister, Mateusz Morawiecki, said in a statement.

But in another sense, this is just the latest iteration of a yearslong cycle that is more about migration than geopolitics or war. The European Union has made it clear for years that it will go to incredible lengths to prevent migrants and refugees from reaching its external borders.

Incredible lengths. It’s like people who go to the incredible length of locking their car doors to keep their stereo from being stolen and bums from sleeping in their car. It’s their own fault that they get their window smashed. How dare they deny the human right to a free car stereo?

… But sometimes that system breaks down, either because the country on Europe’s periphery is no longer able to prevent refugees from reaching Europe (as when Libya’s government collapsed in 2011)

It’s not as is France or Britain had anything to do with the collapse of the Libyan government in 2011 that had made a deal with Berlusconi too keep Africans from sailing toward Italy.

For Europeans to prevent foreigners from moving to their countries, passing through numerous intermediate countries, is considered morally deplorable, just as Jean Raspail predicted would come about in 1973.

    Slovakia, Slovenia, Croatia.

    The problem, like in the US, is the borders cannot be sealed.
    Unless the invaders - in essence worming their way into where they have no business,
    like burglars and rapists - are hunted down throughout the jurisdiction,
    they will keep coming; and that will is sorely lacking
    (it would take removing all Sorosites from public life and slamming
    them with genocide - cf. the UN definition - to turn that around).

    It wouldn't work. Yes, the EU is an anti-European nightmare but that's not the only reason it doesn't work. There is zero solidarity between different European countries and cooperation is extremely difficult, even if you somehow could find enough of them who are that determined to prevent replacement.

    Poland, for example, screwed over Greece and Croatia by refusing to get on board with sanctions against Erdogan over Turkey pushing immigrants into Europe.

    Europeans, even those who do still care about their own country, simply don't give a damn about being "European" or about saving the continent as a whole. I don't really care deeply about being European or anything either, but I can see the bigger picture. Most people don't, and couldn't care less what's happening as long as it's not too close to home.

  2. Because the fourth estate controls all other estates.

    Not that the 4th estate is some free wheeling democratically user-pays free-marketplace but that the 4th estate sets the standard.

    The 4th estate IS the standard!

    It’s absolutely useless to post and bitch about politics, or pretend that business, whether big or small, is directing things, pretending that your own home-town home-grown mayor or mayoress will set things right: the 4th estate controls all!

    Every morning as you wake up and scroll through the news, the parameters of that discourse has already been set. The prism through which you understand the world is controlled and directed by the 4th estate. And whoever owns the 4th estate controls the world.

    Belarus can tell Europe what to do because the 4th estate has anointed Belarus with the powers to do so, with their full approbation and their direction to all European powers, the 4th estate will hunt down to the last man or woman, beyond any left-or-right traditional political scale or paradigm, all those which stand athwart the owners of the 4th estate.

    We cannot elect our way out of this.

    We live inside an eternal schoolyard Bullyochracy, the championing choir, the elite, is guarded and patrolled by the 4th estate.

    Every dot point or university taught understanding of the world, no matter how complex or laden with essays and group sessions, every powerpoint presentation is just a pretense, a scam, as the parasites feed off the leftovers of our civilisation.

    The point is that basic schoolyard hierarchy prevails in international diplomacy, national or state level forms of power distribution.

    People think that the best of us are elected when all they are voting on is height, good looks, force of dominance.

    I'm aghast that Anglin is so hellbent hating women when men are the worst. Men are the most obsequious to these ancient forces of abaisance.

    It's like he never exited high school, never learned that couplings were predominantly in rejection of high school hierarchy. How could he explain the high school fatty having a long life of bearing happily several White children to some chinless wonder of a White boy?

    If you stand outside these hierarchies you can see them for what they are.

    Illusion.

    But it's the role of the 4th estate to strictly enforce this social hierarchy of the schoolyard into adult life to the point of forcing masses of people to inject themselves and pretend it isn't mandatory.

  3. Incredible lengths? Not at all. Since Antiquity, the universal norm was to kill all foreigners trying to enter one’s land. Euripides’ drama Iphigenia among the Taurians, deals with the fate of a Greek princess who had been made priestess at the temple of Artemis in Taurica, a position in which she has the gruesome task of ritually sacrificing foreigners who land on King Thoas’s shores. The drama is about the suffering of Iphigenia, while killing foreign refugees is taken for granted. Taurus is in White Europe, in dark Africa (not so long ago) foreigners were roasted and eaten.

    Iphigenia’s mother waited till the war was over and her mass murderer warlord husband got home and killed him.

    Thieves yes, but I'd say more "opportunistic" than "evil".

    I've got no problem with these folks freezing in Belarus or drowning in the Mediterranean. (Not because i'm a mean spirited bastard--i'm pretty much a big soft-hearted puddy-tat--but simply because i want to preserve the West. When's it's clear they can't get in--they won't come.) But basically these people are realists. Whether fully admitting it to themselves or not, they realize their own people simply don't create the goodies--decent societies to live in, material prosperity--that white people do. But also that the West isn't protecting their stuff. Basically wearing a big "free stuff!" sign. So they go get "free stuff".

    The really evil people are the minoritarian propagandists--the George Soros, Max Fisher, Brett Stevens, Jennifer Rubin types. And even worse the nominal "leaders" of the West--the Joe Biden types--who for money or power or merely to avoid being called "racist" or "Nazi" by the the usual suspects, sell out their own people, their nation--the Ninth Circle people.

    ~~

    The "win-win" here is to put these two groups of people together.

    Have "separation" elections. Figure out how many of these "nation of immigrants", "diversity is our strength", "the Constitution is about minority rights", rainbowistas there are. Given them an appropriate piece of real estate and let them invite in as many "refugees" as they like. But don't let them tear down Western nations.

    Stratford, East London, home of the Olympic Park

    “Stratford, like many areas of London, particularly in the East End, suffered significant de-industrialisation in the 20th century. This was compounded by the closing of the London Docks in the 1960s. Around this time, the Stratford Shopping Centre was built, beginning efforts to guide the area through the process of transformation from a working-class industrial and transport hub to a retail and leisure destination for the contemporary age. These efforts continued with the Olympic bid for Stratford, and the ongoing urban regeneration work going on there.”

    It’s certainly a leisure destination for the contemporary age.

  11. Is white people’s desire for immigrants solely due to culinary boredom? Kings in ye olde thymes, even mere nobles, have fancy chefs snd feasts. If A song of Ice and Fire is somewhat drawing on real history, the rich ate things no one would eat today (larks, bird tongues, eels…) Are white people so well-to-do that we think, “all my basic needs are met. I want yummy in my tummy”? It occurs to me that this is related to the obesity epidemic. The old saying that hunger is the best seasoning might be on to something. We snack a lot these days, and maybe a lot of us are never particularly hungry when we eat, so regular food is not as tasty as it “should” be. Finding our normal eats unsatisfying, we seek out novelty, which means foreign food.

    Other possibilities are that we are just that we’re inundated with billionaire’s propaganda, or that tolerance, indeed, fondness for aliens is just like low birth rates, a disease of affluence. There’s the possibility that immigration is just verbal people trying to drive down the wages of physical workers. Their comeuppance will come…

    I’d be curious to see if hungry people are less approving of immigration. Interestingly, low TFR has hit Asians hardest, but “yes, aliens, come destroy all my ancestors have built” is a white people problem. In the long run, our problem is worse because it can no longer be solved democratically.

    Part is the fact that so many people can now survive without having much common sense. They live inside their head, usually believing the most atrocious nonsense.

    Others have no interest in raising families, and some parties actively discourage them from doing so. So they are unconcerned about the world that mass migration is creating.

    At the top of the economic pyramid, there is raw greed involved, by the businesses who hire them and/or want more customers, or the politicians they keep in their back pockets.

    Then there are people with racist motives, who either want immigration because it brings more of their own here, or because they hate the white, Christian majority.

    And, of course, white people have been told for decades that it's evil and racist to exert any effort on behalf of our own race.

The author of this piece has not taken such initiative and thus must find a way to still make Belarus a terrible enemy that Germany must oppose! While also characterising the most aggressive against international norms actions of Belarus in retaliation as actually good somehow. (Those silly slavkopfs!)

    Either way the German elite care what op eds in the NYT say for some reason (Whilst also being open in acknowledging the significant inferiority of the Anglosphere in running their countries compared to them) so this will sow further confusion in how respond and stop the flood from Belarus leading to deeper and deeper conflict while further undermining German nationalism.

Imagine the US with no enforced border but also with no birthright citizenship, no path to citizenship, and no welfare or education for non-citizens. Throw in e-verify and it’s problem solved. Sure, you’ll get some miscreants, but they won’t stay.

    There's definitely something to this aspect of the Immigration Stupidity, Mr. G. American. Peak Stupidity covered it 3 years ago in "The Stupidity of the Foodies".

    A sample from that post:
    This is one more reason the Globalist/Elite types do like that high-level diversity, though. They ARE the ones that can fly across the country to stay somewhere mainly to get a meal. "Hey, there are only, like 4 authentic Somalian food sit-down places in all of Fresno. I go there on business twice a year, and, dammit, this won't do! We need to raise quotas and get some more of those hardworking refugees." Just read an airline magazine some time - "Here's the food you can get in Sao Paulo, here's a list of the best Greek restaurants in Auckland, New Zealand." That's the way they are. However, the middle class now eats that stuff up too (pun partially intended).

    To hell with these Foodies and their never-ending quest for more exotic people to cook them meals, then import the rest of the family to diversify the town then go on welfare. Could they not just stay inside most nights, brew their own beer, and pull up some cool new recipes off the internet? It'd sure save them some money too, so they could get ahead in life, if that's possible after paying the taxes and other social costs to support all whom they've imported.

    (That post was written before the airline seat back magazines were finally discontinued.)

    The problem with hoping "Catholic culture" will save anything is that the Catholic Church is facilitating the invasion, both physically and by demonizing those who oppose it and doing its best to brainwash the pope-adoring masses.

    The Jesuits, of course, are a plague, and single-mindedly devoted to the destruction of Europe, but the rest of the church is not much better. There is some pushback from individual priests, but that's the exception. I'm in an Eastern European Catholic country so people are not yet as brainwashed as westerners are, but those most ardently religious and involved with religious organizations here are often the ones most heartbroken about the poor immigrants and convinced it's believers' Christian duty to let them in. Most anti-immigration people who invoke Catholicism are trying to use it as a symbol, and aren't actually all that devout or interested in what the New Testament or the pope says.

    It worked okay long ago in a very different world, but "Catholic culture" is obviously not a great thing to rely on to repel this kind of modern invasion. Orthodoxy, being divided into national churches and strongly nationalist, and having much less of a bleeding heart outlook in general, should be better, but it's difficult to say just how much. I don't think it's working out as great as one might hope in Greece.

    What you need to realize is that we don't have a single Catholic church to defend. That would make things a lot easier.

    There really isn't a unified Christian culture. I had Pentacostal neighbors for years and only talked to them a few times. Mormons pretty much see themselves as a separate race.

    Then there are the liberal denominations that are just as much a part of the problem. They promote race denial and Wakanda theory. They teach that it is a sin for racial equality to exist.

  24. I think the premise of ‘incredible lengths’ is also false. Taking a plane to Belarus in order to take advantage of an open border isn’t an ‘incredible length’. Particularly when your expectation is that at worst you’ll be deported back to your home country.

    And getting into a boat for a few hours before being ‘rescued’ by a modern European naval frigate with food and medical care and being safely deposited in Spain or Italy isn’t an ‘incredible length’.

    And walking to an unguarded US border isn’t an ‘incredible length’. It’s something very easy that any healthy adult human could accomplish with very little thought or pain.

    What’s happening is the risk is being massively reduced. The whole mentality behind immigration is trading a less advantageous environment for a more advantageous environment. It’s trying to get something for nothing. It’s doing a job you wouldn’t do in your home country because it paid too little. It’s doing the same job for more pay.

    Any barriers, any increased cost or expectation of unwelcome will massively reduced these flows to trickles, as we saw with Trump’s mere presence in the Oval Office deterred immigration.

    These flows aren’t accomplished by rugged individuals, they are accomplished by vast herds of people following others lead with every detail and aspect given to them by guides.

    And, at a certain point, nice progressive liberals have to ask themselves what personality traits they’re selecting for. The nice introverted conscientious people aren’t the ones doing this. It’s the ones with egos, the ones with low impulse control, the ones who are demanding and anti-social. You’re selecting for bullies and parasites.

    As I said before, a lot of this migrant movement is organized trafficking of peoples out of which organized crime is making a lot of profit.

    These people in Belarus are not the Israelites fleeing Egypt as per Old Testament. In fact the Israelites fleeing Egypt and paddling across the Red Sea while Moses held back the waves are probably just mythology.

    Think of it as more similar to water finding its own level.

    The fact is that there are lots of open jobs for Haitians and Mexicans in the United States in construction, agriculture, domestic service, and as low level caregivers in retirement homes etc. where they can be paid in the mighty dollar and send money home to support their parents.

    In the late 19th century the same phenomenon took place with millions of boat people leaving their homes in Ireland, Scandinavia, and Italy and crossing the Atlantic westwards ending up anywhere from Argentina to Alberta.

    The solution is obviously to dilute the dollar or euro to the point that it is almost worthless and then they won't want to come anymore.

So of course some are commenting, ‘we’re not in the EU, and why aren’t our troops being sent to the French border?’

    Likewise the rumblings of the EU to hit Belarus with more sanctions for ‘sending waves of migrants’ seem a bit ridiculous; I suppose the justification is ‘only Merkel is allowed to do that!’.

    There was also a headline about the EU threatening to withdraw billions in funding to Poland and Hungary for their prior crimes against Liberalism in the week…

    Because “there shall be open borders” is so only for little people.

    This has nothing to do with morality. The people pushing for open borders are all too happy to brutalize and if need be slaughter any that threaten their personal prosperity.

  32. But in another sense, this is just the latest iteration of a yearslong cycle that is more about migration than geopolitics or war. The European Union has made it clear for years that it will go to incredible lengths to prevent migrants and refugees from reaching its external borders.

    Incredible lengths. It’s like people who go to the incredible length of locking their car doors to keep their stereo from being stolen and bums from sleeping in their car. It’s their own fault that they get their window smashed. How dare they deny the human right to a free car stereo?

    Forget it, Steve, it’s “Chinatown”.

    Yeah, the language is insane. But this is core minoritarianism: Minorities have a right to go anywhere and glom onto whatever white gentiles have. And minoritarianism is insane. Well at least insane from the perspective of the survival of any society, any nation. An inversion of the normal moral principle that people have a natural right to their own existence, their own stuff.

    “Incredible” is right.

  33. For Europeans to prevent foreigners from moving to their countries, passing through numerous intermediate countries, is considered morally deplorable, just as Jean Raspail predicted would come about in 1973.

    As with Orwell’s 1984, Raspail’s Camp of the Saints is now beung used as a how-to manual.

    The irony of the ‘weaponized migrants’ that Lukashenko is sending is that Europe is bringing in far more ‘weaponized migrants’ itself, via the Mediterranean, and is using NGOs and even their own navies in order to do so. In fact, former Italian minister Matteo Salvini has been tried twice – for kidnapping, no less – for simply refusing to allow a ship full of invading migrants to dock at an Italian port.

    So on its eastern borders the EU is preparing to go to war over ‘weaponized migrants.’ On its southern border it is using its own resources to bring in the migrant invaders, and is going to war against any government official trying to stop it.

    And, of course, as always, no mention of Israel, or why it’s not having the same problem, in an article written by a guy named Max Fisher.

    A couple of years ago I had a conversation with an American couple who lived in Estonia as expats for some years. The couple is as left and globalist as they come politically, despised Trump for everything especially his Ukraine/Russia policy because they think America should strengthen NATO and defend Eastern Europe against big bad Russia. They’ve traveled extensively throughout Europe. I asked which countries they enjoy visiting the most and they said without hesitation: Eastern Europe especially Hungary. I asked why. She said, “because they kept their culture”. She said Western Europe especially France is no longer fun to visit because they’ve become too crowded, too cosmopolitan and dirty, “lost their character”.

    This is the kind of cognitive dissonance that drives me up the wall with leftists. They love Western countries that kept their culture, yet want maximum immigration for all Western countries. It’s as if they don’t get the connection between immigration and losing one’s culture.

    Another alarming thing she told me was that English is now pretty much the unofficial lingua franca of Europe, including in Eastern Europe. You can pretty much get away with just speaking English everywhere. This is a tragedy for Europe. It means they are now under the influence of America’s toxic degenerate pop culture and globalism, no doubt thanks to Hollywood movies and TV shows, YouTube, Netflix, Google, Facebook.

    Language is a country’s greatest bulwark against cultural invasion. The worst thing any country can do is to adopt English as a second language. As soon as they do that, there goes their sovereignty. Now they are just another Anglo (((globalist))) stooge. Even if their government and older generation try to stop it, the younger generation will grow up thoroughly brainwashed by toxic American culture and want to be just like us because it’s fashionable.

    Eastern Europe has become much more a Americanized since 1989 and since the early 2000s it’s been easy for them to move for work to the U.K., so there are huge incentives to learn English. Nordic Europeans and Germans learn English very young and speak it almost perfectly. The major Southern European or Latin nations (France, Spain, Italy, Greece) start later or don’t learn, so speak with stronger accents and more patterns of diction from their native tongues. For example of the last French presidents I think only Macron has had strong English. Therefore, combined with the PIGS countries doing more to move on or limit immigrants recently, they’re more likely to retain their national cultures.

  40. A humane solution to Belarus/Polish border problem would be to let the migrants cross the border, give them a few solid meals and medical care to let them get their strength back and deport back to where ever they came from. Once they were back home word would spread that it is not worth paying the airfare to get a trek through the forests of eastern Europe.

    This is impossible because the European courts have said that anyone who crosses into the EU has the right to claim refugee status and so stay for at least years while they can work there way through the system. Human rights law can produce a lot of inhumanity.

  41. I’d like to know more about the sanctions that the EU placed on Belarus for forcing that airliner down. They must have been severe to provoke such an extreme response. And now that it is clear that the Belarusian dictator has the whip hand, so to speak, why doesn’t the EU simply back down by removing those sanctions? Can someone explain?

  42. as when Libya’s government collapsed in 2011

    It just collapsed! Like an act of nature. Not, say, from morally monstrous neocons deliberately destroying “Libya’s government” and killing the best leader in Africa who had created a successful and prosperous state but wouldn’t cow-tow to globalist finance. Collapsed! Max Fischer is an imbecile.

    Is white people’s desire for immigrants solely due to culinary boredom?

    If only we had a way to collect the instructions for cooking the food of other nations. Perhaps put those instructions into a book. Call it a “cook book.” Why, then anyone could cook the foods of other nations! But I guess that’s not possible. Moar immigrants please!

    PS – Whites and Japanese can cook ANY cuisine better than the natives.

    I think the premise of 'incredible lengths' is also false. Taking a plane to Belarus in order to take advantage of an open border isn't an 'incredible length'. Particularly when your expectation is that at worst you'll be deported back to your home country.

    And getting into a boat for a few hours before being 'rescued' by a modern European naval frigate with food and medical care and being safely deposited in Spain or Italy isn't an 'incredible length'.

    And walking to an unguarded US border isn't an 'incredible length'. It's something very easy that any healthy adult human could accomplish with very little thought or pain.

    What's happening is the risk is being massively reduced. The whole mentality behind immigration is trading a less advantageous environment for a more advantageous environment. It's trying to get something for nothing. It's doing a job you wouldn't do in your home country because it paid too little. It's doing the same job for more pay.

    Any barriers, any increased cost or expectation of unwelcome will massively reduced these flows to trickles, as we saw with Trump's mere presence in the Oval Office deterred immigration.

    These flows aren't accomplished by rugged individuals, they are accomplished by vast herds of people following others lead with every detail and aspect given to them by guides.

    And, at a certain point, nice progressive liberals have to ask themselves what personality traits they're selecting for. The nice introverted conscientious people aren't the ones doing this. It's the ones with egos, the ones with low impulse control, the ones who are demanding and anti-social. You're selecting for bullies and parasites.

    These people in Belarus are not the Israelites fleeing Egypt as per Old Testament. In fact the Israelites fleeing Egypt and paddling across the Red Sea while Moses held back the waves are probably just mythology.

    Think of it as more similar to water finding its own level.

    The fact is that there are lots of open jobs for Haitians and Mexicans in the United States in construction, agriculture, domestic service, and as low level caregivers in retirement homes etc. where they can be paid in the mighty dollar and send money home to support their parents.

    In the late 19th century the same phenomenon took place with millions of boat people leaving their homes in Ireland, Scandinavia, and Italy and crossing the Atlantic westwards ending up anywhere from Argentina to Alberta.

    The solution is obviously to dilute the dollar or euro to the point that it is almost worthless and then they won’t want to come anymore.

    Meanwhile the solution is AirBnb in Belarussia and remain in Minsk.

    Thieves yes, but I’d say more “opportunistic” than “evil”.

    I’ve got no problem with these folks freezing in Belarus or drowning in the Mediterranean. (Not because i’m a mean spirited bastard–i’m pretty much a big soft-hearted puddy-tat–but simply because i want to preserve the West. When’s it’s clear they can’t get in–they won’t come.) But basically these people are realists. Whether fully admitting it to themselves or not, they realize their own people simply don’t create the goodies–decent societies to live in, material prosperity–that white people do. But also that the West isn’t protecting their stuff. Basically wearing a big “free stuff!” sign. So they go get “free stuff”.

    The really evil people are the minoritarian propagandists–the George Soros, Max Fisher, Brett Stevens, Jennifer Rubin types. And even worse the nominal “leaders” of the West–the Joe Biden types–who for money or power or merely to avoid being called “racist” or “Nazi” by the the usual suspects, sell out their own people, their nation–the Ninth Circle people.

    ~~

    The “win-win” here is to put these two groups of people together.

    Have “separation” elections. Figure out how many of these “nation of immigrants”, “diversity is our strength”, “the Constitution is about minority rights”, rainbowistas there are. Given them an appropriate piece of real estate and let them invite in as many “refugees” as they like. But don’t let them tear down Western nations.

    William Buckley, reviewing “Camp of the Saints,” asked: “Will you shoot them? Will you starve them?” He presciently put his finger on it. Your “freezing” and “drowning” recognizes the immediacy of this issue. If the US or Europe built a wall, and migrants were living in horrible squalor on the other side, what would the US or Europe do then? Buckley, btw, added that a publicized photo of a single, compelling victim could change policy. The above is now the big issue, for Europe and for the US.

Yes, more French are panicking over the direction their country is taking than most other Western Europeans, for the simple reason that France is already much further down that path and its consequences already blindingly obvious. However, that's very far from the country wanting to remain European. Most of the so-called far right's new voters (and again, even with them, the "far right" candidate will almost certainly lose) are just panicking liberals frightened of the monster of their own making, and wishing to slow the replacement down some so that France can have another, stricter go at colorblind French nationalism.

    The problem with hoping “Catholic culture” will save anything is that the Catholic Church is facilitating the invasion, both physically and by demonizing those who oppose it and doing its best to brainwash the pope-adoring masses.

    The Jesuits, of course, are a plague, and single-mindedly devoted to the destruction of Europe, but the rest of the church is not much better. There is some pushback from individual priests, but that’s the exception. I’m in an Eastern European Catholic country so people are not yet as brainwashed as westerners are, but those most ardently religious and involved with religious organizations here are often the ones most heartbroken about the poor immigrants and convinced it’s believers’ Christian duty to let them in. Most anti-immigration people who invoke Catholicism are trying to use it as a symbol, and aren’t actually all that devout or interested in what the New Testament or the pope says.

    It worked okay long ago in a very different world, but “Catholic culture” is obviously not a great thing to rely on to repel this kind of modern invasion. Orthodoxy, being divided into national churches and strongly nationalist, and having much less of a bleeding heart outlook in general, should be better, but it’s difficult to say just how much. I don’t think it’s working out as great as one might hope in Greece.

    I paraphrase iSteve that "concepts not known tend to go unthought".

    Ethos

    Words are similar, but rarely, if ever, the same. There is normally a different word because the different word means something, different. Safe rule.

    Ethos, isn't ethnicity
    Ethos, really, really, isn't race

    Between you, Shouting Thomas, the church, the Catholic Church, the Orthodox Church, and all of your collective commentary, is a point, and the point leads to a road, and the road is ethos.

    Ethos is the thing we are narrowly missing in this whole commentariate, and arguably it's the sine qua non , the whole thing any conscious enemy has been fighting for decades. By missing it, just by a sliver, we stand to lose everything.

    What did the Italian communists notice, that they found to be wrong with the original Marxist ideology from Germany and Russia? Same thing Mao noticed. Original Marxism targeted economics and economic consciousness, alone.

    The Italian communists, the "Frankfurt School" and the Maoists all recognized this as an error and retargeted the culture itself. Not the race. Not even the ethnicity, unless their goal was to divide and weaken. Their target was the culture, the ethos. Like so many that came before it, without ethos, your ethnicity is doomed.

    The church has been a vehicle of ethos - but the vessel is broken. It's been broken in the past and recovered through reform, schism and orders, but it might not be recoverable now. We might need something new.

    Catholic culture may be flawed but is still a thousand times better than what the secular countries are doing. In Sweden the people can't even post here without having spooks monitor them. You see the Sveedish Socialists believe so strongly in equality that they need to pay government informants to watch people less they have unclean thoughts. Nothing says Egalitarian Utopia like spying on your own citizens.

    White people too easily convert to liberalism/leftism if they leave Christianity. In fact the colleges in the US have mastered the practice of converting them.

    Most college educated Whites are idealistic by nature and have a very hard time with race. They want to live in a moral universe and liberalism offers a viewpoint where the educated are the gods among lessers and must save the oppressed (Blacks) from the evil ones. Equality is now in your hands .... Chosen One. This message is incredibly effective and in college I could not believe how many White students would adopt the liberal agenda without even realizing it.

    Secular Whites have few children which of course favors the left. This becomes the justification for immigrants which is what happened in Sweden. The native Swedes are told to have zero or few children because of climate change and then the left brings in immigrants for labor. Of course the long term plan of the left is to rid the world of Whites to take away the only real threat to their existence.

    Is white people’s desire for immigrants solely due to culinary boredom? Kings in ye olde thymes, even mere nobles, have fancy chefs snd feasts. If A song of Ice and Fire is somewhat drawing on real history, the rich ate things no one would eat today (larks, bird tongues, eels...) Are white people so well-to-do that we think, “all my basic needs are met. I want yummy in my tummy”? It occurs to me that this is related to the obesity epidemic. The old saying that hunger is the best seasoning might be on to something. We snack a lot these days, and maybe a lot of us are never particularly hungry when we eat, so regular food is not as tasty as it “should” be. Finding our normal eats unsatisfying, we seek out novelty, which means foreign food.

    Other possibilities are that we are just that we’re inundated with billionaire’s propaganda, or that tolerance, indeed, fondness for aliens is just like low birth rates, a disease of affluence. There’s the possibility that immigration is just verbal people trying to drive down the wages of physical workers. Their comeuppance will come...

    I’d be curious to see if hungry people are less approving of immigration. Interestingly, low TFR has hit Asians hardest, but “yes, aliens, come destroy all my ancestors have built” is a white people problem. In the long run, our problem is worse because it can no longer be solved democratically.

    How ... harshly punishing employers who hire illegals.
     
    I am 100% for that, but the employers are the people who own the politicians, so it will never happen.

    Many decades ago I lived in Bermuda which is a tiny island of 70,000 people (turn right at Cape Hatteras North Carolina) .

    It would have been totally impossible for even one person to be hired illegally, because everybody knew everybody else, and someone would snitch to immigration in an instant.

    The United States is of course much bigger, but if each county was made responsible for enforcing employment laws within its boundaries, then it could be done.

    You could have a law like the new Texas abortion law, that allows any resident to sue an employer of an illegal alien in a local small claims court, and receive a minimum of $10,000 plus legal costs from any employer found to have hired an illegal alien or any person who was not legally allowed to work, or any person who is claiming disability social security.

    Why not suggest this to your local legislator?

  61. It’s funny how Steve wrote a whole commentary without once
    mentioning the word “Poland,” obviously for fear that his head
    might explode. And yet it is Poland which has been forced to return to
    its old role as the defender of the European civilization from the
    forces of lawlessness and tyranny. In the 16th and 17th centuries
    the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth (democratic republic), then
    by far the largest country in Europe, was named “Antemurale
    Christianitatis” (Latin for “Bulwark of Christianity”) because of the
    role it (along with the Kingdom of Hungary) played in defending
    Christendom from the Muslim Ottoman (Turkish) Empire
    (e.g., rescue of Vienna in 1683 by King Jan Sobieski). In general,
    Poland and Hungary expended time, energy, and lives as Europe’s
    defensive perimeter so Britain, France, Holland, Germany, and Spain thus
    protected could embark on their colonialist expansionism and slave
    trade.

    Did Poland get any thanks for its protective role? Are you serious?
    When was the last time the Western Europeans, the dominant
    exploiters of the world, offer thanks to anyone? Today Poland is
    the easternmost flank of the European Union, and is again
    a defender of civilization. Poland has one of the lowest levels
    of social dysfunction (murder, rape, abortion, homelessness, HIV,
    drug addiction, mass shootings (none), terrorist attacks (none),
    inequality, even obesity) so much so that the meme “Holy
    Poland” is currently in vogue. For example, Poland’s murder rate
    is about 12 times lower than in Russia (and a similar ratio holds
    for the U.S. and Poland). It’s not surprising that increasingly
    Americans and Brits, esp. American white girls who don’t feel
    safe in the U.S., are moving to Poland.

    I've got no problem with these folks freezing in Belarus or drowning in the Mediterranean. (Not because i'm a mean spirited bastard--i'm pretty much a big soft-hearted puddy-tat--but simply because i want to preserve the West. When's it's clear they can't get in--they won't come.) But basically these people are realists. Whether fully admitting it to themselves or not, they realize their own people simply don't create the goodies--decent societies to live in, material prosperity--that white people do. But also that the West isn't protecting their stuff. Basically wearing a big "free stuff!" sign. So they go get "free stuff".

    The really evil people are the minoritarian propagandists--the George Soros, Max Fisher, Brett Stevens, Jennifer Rubin types. And even worse the nominal "leaders" of the West--the Joe Biden types--who for money or power or merely to avoid being called "racist" or "Nazi" by the the usual suspects, sell out their own people, their nation--the Ninth Circle people.

    The problem with hoping "Catholic culture" will save anything is that the Catholic Church is facilitating the invasion, both physically and by demonizing those who oppose it and doing its best to brainwash the pope-adoring masses.

    The Jesuits, of course, are a plague, and single-mindedly devoted to the destruction of Europe, but the rest of the church is not much better. There is some pushback from individual priests, but that's the exception. I'm in an Eastern European Catholic country so people are not yet as brainwashed as westerners are, but those most ardently religious and involved with religious organizations here are often the ones most heartbroken about the poor immigrants and convinced it's believers' Christian duty to let them in. Most anti-immigration people who invoke Catholicism are trying to use it as a symbol, and aren't actually all that devout or interested in what the New Testament or the pope says.

    It worked okay long ago in a very different world, but "Catholic culture" is obviously not a great thing to rely on to repel this kind of modern invasion. Orthodoxy, being divided into national churches and strongly nationalist, and having much less of a bleeding heart outlook in general, should be better, but it's difficult to say just how much. I don't think it's working out as great as one might hope in Greece.

    I paraphrase iSteve that “concepts not known tend to go unthought”.

    Words are similar, but rarely, if ever, the same. There is normally a different word because the different word means something, different. Safe rule.

    Ethos, isn’t ethnicity
    Ethos, really, really, isn’t race

    Between you, Shouting Thomas, the church, the Catholic Church, the Orthodox Church, and all of your collective commentary, is a point, and the point leads to a road, and the road is ethos.

    Ethos is the thing we are narrowly missing in this whole commentariate, and arguably it’s the sine qua non , the whole thing any conscious enemy has been fighting for decades. By missing it, just by a sliver, we stand to lose everything.

    What did the Italian communists notice, that they found to be wrong with the original Marxist ideology from Germany and Russia? Same thing Mao noticed. Original Marxism targeted economics and economic consciousness, alone.

    The Italian communists, the “Frankfurt School” and the Maoists all recognized this as an error and retargeted the culture itself. Not the race. Not even the ethnicity, unless their goal was to divide and weaken. Their target was the culture, the ethos. Like so many that came before it, without ethos, your ethnicity is doomed.

    The church has been a vehicle of ethos – but the vessel is broken. It’s been broken in the past and recovered through reform, schism and orders, but it might not be recoverable now. We might need something new.

    Is white people’s desire for immigrants solely due to culinary boredom? Kings in ye olde thymes, even mere nobles, have fancy chefs snd feasts. If A song of Ice and Fire is somewhat drawing on real history, the rich ate things no one would eat today (larks, bird tongues, eels...) Are white people so well-to-do that we think, “all my basic needs are met. I want yummy in my tummy”? It occurs to me that this is related to the obesity epidemic. The old saying that hunger is the best seasoning might be on to something. We snack a lot these days, and maybe a lot of us are never particularly hungry when we eat, so regular food is not as tasty as it “should” be. Finding our normal eats unsatisfying, we seek out novelty, which means foreign food.

    Other possibilities are that we are just that we’re inundated with billionaire’s propaganda, or that tolerance, indeed, fondness for aliens is just like low birth rates, a disease of affluence. There’s the possibility that immigration is just verbal people trying to drive down the wages of physical workers. Their comeuppance will come...

    I’d be curious to see if hungry people are less approving of immigration. Interestingly, low TFR has hit Asians hardest, but “yes, aliens, come destroy all my ancestors have built” is a white people problem.

    A couple of years ago I had a conversation with an American couple who lived in Estonia as expats for some years. The couple is as left and globalist as they come politically, despised Trump for everything especially his Ukraine/Russia policy because they think America should strengthen NATO and defend Eastern Europe against big bad Russia. They've traveled extensively throughout Europe. I asked which countries they enjoy visiting the most and they said without hesitation: Eastern Europe especially Hungary. I asked why. She said, "because they kept their culture". She said Western Europe especially France is no longer fun to visit because they've become too crowded, too cosmopolitan and dirty, "lost their character".

    This is the kind of cognitive dissonance that drives me up the wall with leftists. They love Western countries that kept their culture, yet want maximum immigration for all Western countries. It's as if they don't get the connection between immigration and losing one's culture.

    Another alarming thing she told me was that English is now pretty much the unofficial lingua franca of Europe, including in Eastern Europe. You can pretty much get away with just speaking English everywhere. This is a tragedy for Europe. It means they are now under the influence of America's toxic degenerate pop culture and globalism, no doubt thanks to Hollywood movies and TV shows, YouTube, Netflix, Google, Facebook.

    Language is a country's greatest bulwark against cultural invasion. The worst thing any country can do is to adopt English as a second language. As soon as they do that, there goes their sovereignty. Now they are just another Anglo (((globalist))) stooge. Even if their government and older generation try to stop it, the younger generation will grow up thoroughly brainwashed by toxic American culture and want to be just like us because it's fashionable.

They might even ask the migrants if they’d like connecting service to Brussels.

    But being Poles, it doesn’t occur to them from where the real threat to Poland is coming

    Incredible lengths? Not at all. Since Antiquity, the universal norm was to kill all foreigners trying to enter one's land. Euripides' drama Iphigenia among the Taurians, deals with the fate of a Greek princess who had been made priestess at the temple of Artemis in Taurica, a position in which she has the gruesome task of ritually sacrificing foreigners who land on King Thoas's shores. The drama is about the suffering of Iphigenia, while killing foreign refugees is taken for granted. Taurus is in White Europe, in dark Africa (not so long ago) foreigners were roasted and eaten.

    I thought her father killed Iphigenia because he thought God would reward him by sending in a strong wind so his ships would get to Troy quickly and he could have fun slaughtering looting setting fires and enslaving. The movie version I saw was horrifying. As was The Trojan women. The women in a corral waiting to be sent off and sold as slaves.

    Her father was bamboozled.

    A good modern translation by George Theodoridis explains how Euripides saw it, and it sounds amazingly similar to how Star Trek killed Spock in the 1980s and brought him back in the next movie.


    Iphigeneia: they took me from my mother and brought me to their camp at Aulis, under the pretext of marrying me to Achilles. That was one of Odysseus’ usual sly tricks. When I got there, they lifted me up above the altar and slaughtered me with a sword.

    But Artemis snatched me away the very last minute and in my place, on the altar, she put a deer. She picked me up and sped me through the bright air to have me land here, in Tauris, to live among the Taurians.

    How ... harshly punishing employers who hire illegals.
     
    I am 100% for that, but the employers are the people who own the politicians, so it will never happen.

    Many decades ago I lived in Bermuda which is a tiny island of 70,000 people (turn right at Cape Hatteras North Carolina) .

    It would have been totally impossible for even one person to be hired illegally, because everybody knew everybody else, and someone would snitch to immigration in an instant.

    The United States is of course much bigger, but if each county was made responsible for enforcing employment laws within its boundaries, then it could be done.

    You could have a law like the new Texas abortion law, that allows any resident to sue an employer of an illegal alien in a local small claims court, and receive a minimum of $10,000 plus legal costs from any employer found to have hired an illegal alien or any person who was not legally allowed to work, or any person who is claiming disability social security.

    Why not suggest this to your local legislator?

    Replies: @Citizen of a Silly Country, @TWS

    I agree that politicians are owned by big business and a certain tribe, neither of which wants to stop or slow immigration, legal or illegal. Personally, I don’t think that’s there’s a solution to the problem. We’re the Roman Republic heading downhill fast.

    This is one more reason the Globalist/Elite types do like that high-level diversity, though. They ARE the ones that can fly across the country to stay somewhere mainly to get a meal. “Hey, there are only, like 4 authentic Somalian food sit-down places in all of Fresno. I go there on business twice a year, and, dammit, this won’t do! We need to raise quotas and get some more of those hardworking refugees.” Just read an airline magazine some time – “Here’s the food you can get in Sao Paulo, here’s a list of the best Greek restaurants in Auckland, New Zealand.” That’s the way they are. However, the middle class now eats that stuff up too (pun partially intended).

    To hell with these Foodies and their never-ending quest for more exotic people to cook them meals, then import the rest of the family to diversify the town then go on welfare. Could they not just stay inside most nights, brew their own beer, and pull up some cool new recipes off the internet? It’d sure save them some money too, so they could get ahead in life, if that’s possible after paying the taxes and other social costs to support all whom they’ve imported.

    The problem with hoping "Catholic culture" will save anything is that the Catholic Church is facilitating the invasion, both physically and by demonizing those who oppose it and doing its best to brainwash the pope-adoring masses.

    The Jesuits, of course, are a plague, and single-mindedly devoted to the destruction of Europe, but the rest of the church is not much better. There is some pushback from individual priests, but that's the exception. I'm in an Eastern European Catholic country so people are not yet as brainwashed as westerners are, but those most ardently religious and involved with religious organizations here are often the ones most heartbroken about the poor immigrants and convinced it's believers' Christian duty to let them in. Most anti-immigration people who invoke Catholicism are trying to use it as a symbol, and aren't actually all that devout or interested in what the New Testament or the pope says.

    It worked okay long ago in a very different world, but "Catholic culture" is obviously not a great thing to rely on to repel this kind of modern invasion. Orthodoxy, being divided into national churches and strongly nationalist, and having much less of a bleeding heart outlook in general, should be better, but it's difficult to say just how much. I don't think it's working out as great as one might hope in Greece.

    Catholic culture may be flawed but is still a thousand times better than what the secular countries are doing. In Sweden the people can’t even post here without having spooks monitor them. You see the Sveedish Socialists believe so strongly in equality that they need to pay government informants to watch people less they have unclean thoughts. Nothing says Egalitarian Utopia like spying on your own citizens.

    White people too easily convert to liberalism/leftism if they leave Christianity. In fact the colleges in the US have mastered the practice of converting them.

    Most college educated Whites are idealistic by nature and have a very hard time with race. They want to live in a moral universe and liberalism offers a viewpoint where the educated are the gods among lessers and must save the oppressed (Blacks) from the evil ones. Equality is now in your hands …. Chosen One. This message is incredibly effective and in college I could not believe how many White students would adopt the liberal agenda without even realizing it.

    Secular Whites have few children which of course favors the left. This becomes the justification for immigrants which is what happened in Sweden. The native Swedes are told to have zero or few children because of climate change and then the left brings in immigrants for labor. Of course the long term plan of the left is to rid the world of Whites to take away the only real threat to their existence.

    At the top of the economic pyramid, there is raw greed involved, by the businesses who hire them and/or want more customers, or the politicians they keep in their back pockets.

If A song of Ice and Fire is somewhat drawing on real history, the rich ate things no one would eat today (larks, bird tongues, eels...) Are white people so well-to-do that we think, “all my basic needs are met. I want yummy in my tummy”? It occurs to me that this is related to the obesity epidemic. The old saying that hunger is the best seasoning might be on to something. We snack a lot these days, and maybe a lot of us are never particularly hungry when we eat, so regular food is not as tasty as it “should” be. Finding our normal eats unsatisfying, we seek out novelty, which means foreign food.

    Other possibilities are that we are just that we’re inundated with billionaire’s propaganda, or that tolerance, indeed, fondness for aliens is just like low birth rates, a disease of affluence. There’s the possibility that immigration is just verbal people trying to drive down the wages of physical workers. Their comeuppance will come...

    I’d be curious to see if hungry people are less approving of immigration.

    Palma de Mallorca: Fleeing passengers shut down busy Spanish airport
    https://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-59191108

    One of Spain’s busiest airports shut down for nearly four hours on Friday after an apparent attempt by migrants to enter the country illegally.

    A plane flying from Casablanca in Morocco to Istanbul, Turkey, was diverted to Palma de Mallorca after a medical emergency was reported aboard.

    When the jet landed, 21 passengers ran off across the runways, reportedly escaping over the perimeter fence.

    Police later made arrests but 12 were still on the run on Saturday.

    Police are investigating whether the group’s escape from the plane was spontaneous or an elaborate plot to immigrate illegally.

    The top Spanish government official for the Balearic Islands, Aina Calvo, said the event was unprecedented for a Spanish airport.

    The drama began when emergency services boarded the Air Arabia Maroc plane to evacuate a Moroccan man said to have fallen into a diabetic coma. As they did so, 21 other passengers ran down the steps and fled, reportedly hiding under parked planes.

    After a health check at a hospital found him to be fit and well, the Moroccan man was discharged and arrested for illegally entering the country, Spain’s Efe news agency reports. A fellow passenger accompanying him to the hospital reportedly disappeared.

    Most of the escapees who were arrested were found by the Guardia Civil, the Majorca Daily Bulletin reports, noting that “one was caught walking along the road to Manacor”.

    The total number involved was 24, including a person arrested for aggressive behaviour on the plane.

    Some 60 national and international flights were diverted or delayed as a result of the incident.

    The Air Arabia Maroc plane later continued to Turkey with its remaining passengers.

    A new fraud has been tested. Fake a medical emergency to force a plane to make an emergency landing in the desired country, when the plane lands and the doors are opened for the paramedics, you make your escape. Unfortunately for these Moroccans they didn’t land in mainland Europe but Mallorca and so will likely be rounded up quickly but that still doesn’t preclude them from filing asylum claims.

    The reason a certain demographic has been attacking Columbus for decades is that 1492 is the same year Spain expelled the Muslims and Jewish slave traders funded the discovery of America and the sea routes connecting the world.

    Somewhere in a file I have the lyrics to a hymn The Last Mass song in Hagia Sophia . The Christians held a special mass wrote a hymn the for a mass the night of the day the Turkish cannon finally broke through the walls and they knew it was all over . Not just for them but for European western civilization in the Mid East Catholic Hungarianinvrntrd abd byikt the massuve bronze cannons and sold them to the Turks.

    There’s 2 excellent historical dramas about the era. Very accurate as far as I know. Netflix the Borgias. You tube Magnificent Century about the expansionist Sultan Suleiman of Turkey. Borgias about the papacy’s fight against the Muslim invasions of Europe. Pope Borgia’s fights against the Turks is featured .

    But wasn't just that Pope. It was every Pope from about 670 AD to 1830 AD Guarding the Mediterranean shores of Europe from muslin invasion and leading and organizing the defense of Europe . 1839 AD was the conquest of the slave raiding pirates of Algeria by France that ended the slavery raids on Europe. Till about 197o. When it started again. By Arabs living in France.

    Forget about your British N Ireland evangelical Protestant bigotry and hatred of Catholics. And watch both those shows . Very accurate depictions of both sides of the Catholic Europe vs Muslin Turk centuries of conflict.

    It was the Turks that finally destroyed the Norwegian territory of Greenland some time in the 1500s. Sultan Suleiman or his children’s time. There was Black Plague in Norway so the Norwegian ship didn’t go to Greenland for 2 years The third year they arrived. The town was burnt and every one was gone.

    After a few days some Eskimos arrived and told what happened. A fleet of ships appeared, burnt the town and either killed or carried off the population . The Eskimos described the ships, sails insignia clothing of the invaders Turks.

    Watch both shows. Cesar’s chief Assassination Miguel was a real person life long friend They met in elementary school. I don’t think Lucretia’s first marriage was as horrible as depicted. Henry 7 of England proposed a marriage between Henry 8 and Lucretia. Borgia ,like every other European potential father of the bride except Ferdinand of Aragon said no. They worried that the Tudor throne was unstable and likely to be overthrown Excellent shows and historically accurate about the now 1300 old war between no longer Christian Europe and Islam.

    Why not?

    Because it’s a country that chose Macron even with massacre after massacre, multiple brutal murders of priests in churches (not to even mention all the arson), no-go zones all over the place, and only a few short decades to go before it’s game over. And they’ll vote against the immigration restrictionist candidate yet again, even after another round of very public beheadings and stabbings. Yes, more French are panicking over the direction their country is taking than most other Western Europeans, for the simple reason that France is already much further down that path and its consequences already blindingly obvious. However, that’s very far from the country wanting to remain European. Most of the so-called far right’s new voters (and again, even with them, the “far right” candidate will almost certainly lose) are just panicking liberals frightened of the monster of their own making, and wishing to slow the replacement down some so that France can have another, stricter go at colorblind French nationalism. This time it’ll work!!

    Where’s your proof?

    You can start with the PEW polling of youth attitudes in Eastern European countries. You can easily find it here on Unz.com, Karlin’s written about it.

    Says who? Again, where’s your proof?

    What, proof that Hungary’s the one country on that commenter’s list /in the EU that doesn’t strike me as hopeless? LMAO, is this a trial or something? It’s my observation as a European who follows European politics, travels through Europe and interacts with other Europeans. You’re free to take it or leave it.

    It wouldn’t work. Yes, the EU is an anti-European nightmare but that’s not the only reason it doesn’t work. There is zero solidarity between different European countries and cooperation is extremely difficult, even if you somehow could find enough of them who are that determined to prevent replacement.

    Poland, for example, screwed over Greece and Croatia by refusing to get on board with sanctions against Erdogan over Turkey pushing immigrants into Europe.

    Europeans, even those who do still care about their own country, simply don’t give a damn about being “European” or about saving the continent as a whole. I don’t really care deeply about being European or anything either, but I can see the bigger picture. Most people don’t, and couldn’t care less what’s happening as long as it’s not too close to home.

    Palma de Mallorca: Fleeing passengers shut down busy Spanish airport
    https://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-59191108

    One of Spain's busiest airports shut down for nearly four hours on Friday after an apparent attempt by migrants to enter the country illegally.

    A plane flying from Casablanca in Morocco to Istanbul, Turkey, was diverted to Palma de Mallorca after a medical emergency was reported aboard.

    When the jet landed, 21 passengers ran off across the runways, reportedly escaping over the perimeter fence.

    Police later made arrests but 12 were still on the run on Saturday.

    Police are investigating whether the group's escape from the plane was spontaneous or an elaborate plot to immigrate illegally.

    The top Spanish government official for the Balearic Islands, Aina Calvo, said the event was unprecedented for a Spanish airport.

    The drama began when emergency services boarded the Air Arabia Maroc plane to evacuate a Moroccan man said to have fallen into a diabetic coma. As they did so, 21 other passengers ran down the steps and fled, reportedly hiding under parked planes.

    After a health check at a hospital found him to be fit and well, the Moroccan man was discharged and arrested for illegally entering the country, Spain's Efe news agency reports. A fellow passenger accompanying him to the hospital reportedly disappeared.

    Most of the escapees who were arrested were found by the Guardia Civil, the Majorca Daily Bulletin reports, noting that "one was caught walking along the road to Manacor".

    The total number involved was 24, including a person arrested for aggressive behaviour on the plane.

    Some 60 national and international flights were diverted or delayed as a result of the incident.

    The Air Arabia Maroc plane later continued to Turkey with its remaining passengers.

    Spain, dealing with Moroccan invasions for 1300 years. Every time I see one of those books glorifying the occupation of Spain by Muslims for 800 years I want to burn the book and the author.

    The reason a certain demographic has been attacking Columbus for decades is that 1492 is the same year Spain expelled the Muslims and Jewish slave traders funded the discovery of America and the sea routes connecting the world.

    And of course the lying historians never ever mention the conquest of the last of Byzantium 1452 closed the overland trade routes between Europe and China and India and forced the Europeans west.

    Turkish bath “ while Europeans wallowed in filth and bathed only once in their lives, when they were born” Lying enlightenment Masons. The bathhouses in Byzantium and the rest of the Mid East were built by the Romans and maintained all those centuries.

    Somewhere in a file I have the lyrics to a hymn The Last Mass song in Hagia Sophia . The Christians held a special mass wrote a hymn the for a mass the night of the day the Turkish cannon finally broke through the walls and they knew it was all over . Not just for them but for European western civilization in the Mid East Catholic Hungarianinvrntrd abd byikt the massuve bronze cannons and sold them to the Turks.

    There’s 2 excellent historical dramas about the era. Very accurate as far as I know. Netflix the Borgias. You tube Magnificent Century about the expansionist Sultan Suleiman of Turkey. Borgias about the papacy’s fight against the Muslim invasions of Europe. Pope Borgia’s fights against the Turks is featured .

    But wasn’t just that Pope. It was every Pope from about 670 AD to 1830 AD Guarding the Mediterranean shores of Europe from muslin invasion and leading and organizing the defense of Europe . 1839 AD was the conquest of the slave raiding pirates of Algeria by France that ended the slavery raids on Europe. Till about 197o. When it started again. By Arabs living in France.

    Forget about your British N Ireland evangelical Protestant bigotry and hatred of Catholics. And watch both those shows . Very accurate depictions of both sides of the Catholic Europe vs Muslin Turk centuries of conflict.

    It was the Turks that finally destroyed the Norwegian territory of Greenland some time in the 1500s. Sultan Suleiman or his children’s time. There was Black Plague in Norway so the Norwegian ship didn’t go to Greenland for 2 years The third year they arrived. The town was burnt and every one was gone.

    After a few days some Eskimos arrived and told what happened. A fleet of ships appeared, burnt the town and either killed or carried off the population . The Eskimos described the ships, sails insignia clothing of the invaders Turks.

    Watch both shows. Cesar’s chief Assassination Miguel was a real person life long friend They met in elementary school. I don’t think Lucretia’s first marriage was as horrible as depicted. Henry 7 of England proposed a marriage between Henry 8 and Lucretia. Borgia ,like every other European potential father of the bride except Ferdinand of Aragon said no. They worried that the Tudor throne was unstable and likely to be overthrown Excellent shows and historically accurate about the now 1300 old war between no longer Christian Europe and Islam.

    I think the premise of 'incredible lengths' is also false. Taking a plane to Belarus in order to take advantage of an open border isn't an 'incredible length'. Particularly when your expectation is that at worst you'll be deported back to your home country.

    And getting into a boat for a few hours before being 'rescued' by a modern European naval frigate with food and medical care and being safely deposited in Spain or Italy isn't an 'incredible length'.

    And walking to an unguarded US border isn't an 'incredible length'. It's something very easy that any healthy adult human could accomplish with very little thought or pain.

    What's happening is the risk is being massively reduced. The whole mentality behind immigration is trading a less advantageous environment for a more advantageous environment. It's trying to get something for nothing. It's doing a job you wouldn't do in your home country because it paid too little. It's doing the same job for more pay.

    Any barriers, any increased cost or expectation of unwelcome will massively reduced these flows to trickles, as we saw with Trump's mere presence in the Oval Office deterred immigration.

    These flows aren't accomplished by rugged individuals, they are accomplished by vast herds of people following others lead with every detail and aspect given to them by guides.

    And, at a certain point, nice progressive liberals have to ask themselves what personality traits they're selecting for. The nice introverted conscientious people aren't the ones doing this. It's the ones with egos, the ones with low impulse control, the ones who are demanding and anti-social. You're selecting for bullies and parasites.

    It’s funny how Steve wrote a whole commentary without once
    mentioning the word “Poland,” obviously for fear that his head
    might explode. And yet it is Poland which has been forced to return to
    its old role as the defender of the European civilization from the
    forces of lawlessness and tyranny. In the 16th and 17th centuries
    the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth (democratic republic), then
    by far the largest country in Europe, was named “Antemurale
    Christianitatis” (Latin for “Bulwark of Christianity”) because of the
    role it (along with the Kingdom of Hungary) played in defending
    Christendom from the Muslim Ottoman (Turkish) Empire
    (e.g., rescue of Vienna in 1683 by King Jan Sobieski). In general,
    Poland and Hungary expended time, energy, and lives as Europe’s
    defensive perimeter so Britain, France, Holland, Germany, and Spain thus
    protected could embark on their colonialist expansionism and slave
    trade.

    Did Poland get any thanks for its protective role? Are you serious?
    When was the last time the Western Europeans, the dominant
    exploiters of the world, offer thanks to anyone? Today Poland is
    the easternmost flank of the European Union, and is again
    a defender of civilization. Poland has one of the lowest levels
    of social dysfunction (murder, rape, abortion, homelessness, HIV,
    drug addiction, mass shootings (none), terrorist attacks (none),
    inequality, even obesity) so much so that the meme “Holy
    Poland” is currently in vogue. For example, Poland’s murder rate
    is about 12 times lower than in Russia (and a similar ratio holds
    for the U.S. and Poland). It’s not surprising that increasingly
    Americans and Brits, esp. American white girls who don’t feel

    It’s funny how Steve wrote a whole commentary without once
    mentioning the word “Poland,” obviously for fear that his head
    might explode. And yet it is Poland which has been forced to return to
    its old role as the defender of the European civilization from the
    forces of lawlessness and tyranny. In the 16th and 17th centuries
    the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth (democratic republic), then
    by far the largest country in Europe, was named “Antemurale
    Christianitatis” (Latin for “Bulwark of Christianity”) because of the
    role it (along with the Kingdom of Hungary) played in defending
    Christendom from the Muslim Ottoman (Turkish) Empire
    (e.g., rescue of Vienna in 1683 by King Jan Sobieski). In general,
    Poland and Hungary expended time, energy, and lives as Europe’s
    defensive perimeter so Britain, France, Holland, Germany, and Spain thus
    protected could embark on their colonialist expansionism and slave
    trade.

    Did Poland get any thanks for its protective role? Are you serious?
    When was the last time the Western Europeans, the dominant
    exploiters of the world, offer thanks to anyone? Today Poland is
    the easternmost flank of the European Union, and is again
    a defender of civilization. Poland has one of the lowest levels
    of social dysfunction (murder, rape, abortion, homelessness, HIV,
    drug addiction, mass shootings (none), terrorist attacks (none),
    inequality, even obesity) so much so that the meme “Holy
    Poland” is currently in vogue. For example, Poland’s murder rate
    is about 12 times lower than in Russia (and a similar ratio holds
    for the U.S. and Poland). It’s not surprising that increasingly
    Americans and Brits, esp. American white girls who don’t feel
    safe in the U.S., are moving to Poland.

    The reason a certain demographic has been attacking Columbus for decades is that 1492 is the same year Spain expelled the Muslims and Jewish slave traders funded the discovery of America and the sea routes connecting the world.

    And of course the lying historians never ever mention the conquest of the last of Byzantium 1452 closed the overland trade routes between Europe and China and India and forced the Europeans west.

    Turkish bath “ while Europeans wallowed in filth and bathed only once in their lives, when they were born” Lying enlightenment Masons. The bathhouses in Byzantium and the rest of the Mid East were built by the Romans and maintained all those centuries.

    Somewhere in a file I have the lyrics to a hymn The Last Mass song in Hagia Sophia . The Christians held a special mass wrote a hymn the for a mass the night of the day the Turkish cannon finally broke through the walls and they knew it was all over . Not just for them but for European western civilization in the Mid East Catholic Hungarianinvrntrd abd byikt the massuve bronze cannons and sold them to the Turks.

    There’s 2 excellent historical dramas about the era. Very accurate as far as I know. Netflix the Borgias. You tube Magnificent Century about the expansionist Sultan Suleiman of Turkey. Borgias about the papacy’s fight against the Muslim invasions of Europe. Pope Borgia’s fights against the Turks is featured .

    But wasn't just that Pope. It was every Pope from about 670 AD to 1830 AD Guarding the Mediterranean shores of Europe from muslin invasion and leading and organizing the defense of Europe . 1839 AD was the conquest of the slave raiding pirates of Algeria by France that ended the slavery raids on Europe. Till about 197o. When it started again. By Arabs living in France.

    Forget about your British N Ireland evangelical Protestant bigotry and hatred of Catholics. And watch both those shows . Very accurate depictions of both sides of the Catholic Europe vs Muslin Turk centuries of conflict.

    It was the Turks that finally destroyed the Norwegian territory of Greenland some time in the 1500s. Sultan Suleiman or his children’s time. There was Black Plague in Norway so the Norwegian ship didn’t go to Greenland for 2 years The third year they arrived. The town was burnt and every one was gone.

    After a few days some Eskimos arrived and told what happened. A fleet of ships appeared, burnt the town and either killed or carried off the population . The Eskimos described the ships, sails insignia clothing of the invaders Turks.

    Watch both shows. Cesar’s chief Assassination Miguel was a real person life long friend They met in elementary school. I don’t think Lucretia’s first marriage was as horrible as depicted. Henry 7 of England proposed a marriage between Henry 8 and Lucretia. Borgia ,like every other European potential father of the bride except Ferdinand of Aragon said no. They worried that the Tudor throne was unstable and likely to be overthrown Excellent shows and historically accurate about the now 1300 old war between no longer Christian Europe and Islam.

    A couple of years ago I had a conversation with an American couple who lived in Estonia as expats for some years. The couple is as left and globalist as they come politically, despised Trump for everything especially his Ukraine/Russia policy because they think America should strengthen NATO and defend Eastern Europe against big bad Russia. They've traveled extensively throughout Europe. I asked which countries they enjoy visiting the most and they said without hesitation: Eastern Europe especially Hungary. I asked why. She said, "because they kept their culture". She said Western Europe especially France is no longer fun to visit because they've become too crowded, too cosmopolitan and dirty, "lost their character".

    This is the kind of cognitive dissonance that drives me up the wall with leftists. They love Western countries that kept their culture, yet want maximum immigration for all Western countries. It's as if they don't get the connection between immigration and losing one's culture.

    Another alarming thing she told me was that English is now pretty much the unofficial lingua franca of Europe, including in Eastern Europe. You can pretty much get away with just speaking English everywhere. This is a tragedy for Europe. It means they are now under the influence of America's toxic degenerate pop culture and globalism, no doubt thanks to Hollywood movies and TV shows, YouTube, Netflix, Google, Facebook.

    Language is a country's greatest bulwark against cultural invasion. The worst thing any country can do is to adopt English as a second language. As soon as they do that, there goes their sovereignty. Now they are just another Anglo (((globalist))) stooge. Even if their government and older generation try to stop it, the younger generation will grow up thoroughly brainwashed by toxic American culture and want to be just like us because it's fashionable. China and Russia need to block all American movies and TV shows, YouTube, Netflix, Google, FB, and ban learning of English if they want to survive as sovereign nations.

    “First come military and political causes, but there are also economic factors: there are very high social benefits for migrants in Europe, very high indeed. Say, given high unemployment, a good worker in the Middle East, including in oil producing countries, even if he is employed in the oil industry, earns a fraction of the social benefits that non-working migrants get, for example, in the Federal Republic of Germany. It is natural that people are heading there. Why should they work in turbulent conditions when basic safety rules are not observed when they can live idly with their families and get twice or three times as much? Because these benefits cover both adults and children, free education and, as a rule, free medical care. Let me reiterate, this is the policy of Europe’s leading nations.”

    Many decades ago I lived in Bermuda which is a tiny island of 70,000 people (turn right at Cape Hatteras North Carolina) .

    It would have been totally impossible for even one person to be hired illegally, because everybody knew everybody else, and someone would snitch to immigration in an instant.

    The United States is of course much bigger, but if each county was made responsible for enforcing employment laws within its boundaries, then it could be done.

    You could have a law like the new Texas abortion law, that allows any resident to sue an employer of an illegal alien in a local small claims court, and receive a minimum of $10,000 plus legal costs from any employer found to have hired an illegal alien or any person who was not legally allowed to work, or any person who is claiming disability social security.

    Iphigeneia: they took me from my mother and brought me to their camp at Aulis, under the pretext of marrying me to Achilles. That was one of Odysseus’ usual sly tricks. When I got there, they lifted me up above the altar and slaughtered me with a sword.

    But Artemis snatched me away the very last minute and in my place, on the altar, she put a deer. She picked me up and sped me through the bright air to have me land here, in Tauris, to live among the Taurians.

    O the Roast Beef of Old England (‘The Gate of Calais’)

    This painting is Hogarth's comment on his second visit to France in the summer of 1748, when he was arrested as a spy while sketching the arms of England on the old city gate at Calais. The contemporary diarist George Vertue records in August 1748 that Hogarth and Francis Hayman were 'attempting to draw some Views of Fortifications &c. were surprized & clapt into the Bastile. from whence they were soon glad to return to England' ('Vertue Note Books III', Walpole Society, vol.22, Oxford 1934, p.142). Hogarth took his revenge with this painting. The title was taken from a popular tune of the day, which extolled roast beef as the symbol of Britain's wealth and power.

    Numerous xenophobic references indicate Hogarth's low opinion of the French. The huge side of British beef at the exact centre of the picture, destined for the English inn at Calais, is neatly balanced by the scrawny French soldier at the other side of the drawbridge. A fat friar, the only well-nourished Frenchman in the picture, covetously pokes the beef. In the right foreground, a starving Jacobite sits with his pathetic meal of an onion and a piece of bread, his overturned cup beside him. The Jacobites, the Scotsmen who fled to France after the unsuccessful Scottish rebellion of 1745, are further symbolised by the black crow which perches atop the stone cross above the drawbridge. In the tableau framed by the gate, a white dove hangs on an inn sign above the cross - a satirisation of the Catholic Church. The fish-wives in the left foreground ridicule a skate whose unpleasantly human features resemble their own. To the left of the gate, framed by vegetables, sits Hogarth himself. As he sketches the drawbridge, the arresting officer's hand clasps his shoulder.

    Slovakia, Slovenia, Croatia.

    The problem, like in the US, is the borders cannot be sealed.
    Unless the invaders - in essence worming their way into where they have no business,
    like burglars and rapists - are hunted down throughout the jurisdiction,
    they will keep coming; and that will is sorely lacking
    (it would take removing all Sorosites from public life and slamming
    them with genocide - cf. the UN definition - to turn that around).

    Replies: @Anonymous Jew

    You don’t need borders with laws that discourage ‘migrants’ in the first place. Imagine the US with no enforced border but also with no birthright citizenship, no path to citizenship, and no welfare or education for non-citizens. Throw in e-verify and it’s problem solved. Sure, you’ll get some miscreants, but they won’t stay.

    Stratford, East London, home of the Olympic Park


    "Stratford, like many areas of London, particularly in the East End, suffered significant de-industrialisation in the 20th century. This was compounded by the closing of the London Docks in the 1960s. Around this time, the Stratford Shopping Centre was built, beginning efforts to guide the area through the process of transformation from a working-class industrial and transport hub to a retail and leisure destination for the contemporary age. These efforts continued with the Olympic bid for Stratford, and the ongoing urban regeneration work going on there."
     
    It's certainly a leisure destination for the contemporary age.

    iSteve commenters are HBD aware, not pro-white. Don't mistake racially aware with racial loyalty.

    Steve, himself, isn't pro-white. I've never read anything from him advocating white identity politics, which he seems to see as some terrible potential outcome of the current anti-white campaign.

    Most iSteve commenters - except, of course, the usual suspects - seem loyal to high-IQ folks like themselves regardless of race. They're blissfully unaware that most non-white high IQ don't share their disloyalty to their own kin.

    Replies: @John Johnson

    I am HBD aware but not a White nationalist and it has nothing to do with high IQ loyalty.

    If anything half the problem is that highly intelligent Whites are more likely to delude themselves on race. They *want to believe* that the intelligent and educated position is that race doesn’t exist.

    Where does White nationalism begin and end? What about all the liberal and Con Inc Whites that would shut this website down? Are we supposed to serve their interests as they work against us?

    Growing up I had Whites of all persuasions do their best to indoctrinate me when it comes race. White nationalists tell me I’m supposed to give those lying Whites a break because Jews are behind it all. Yea well not buying it. Even if you took out the Jews there would still be MILLIONS of Whites that fully support sending us off to camps for discussing what they know full well is the truth. I have had Republicans complain about political correctness and then admit privately that we can’t discuss race cause that would be wrong or would make Blacks angry. Oh ok. Lying is fine when you guys do it. Got it.

    The funny thing is that I have never had Blacks or Hispanics try to lie to me about race. It has always been some nanny state liberal egalitarian or some Con INC Holly Roller. White people never treated me with kinship or blood loyalty. A basic component of loyalty should be honesty and most White people are unable to comprehend that. I’ve had endless Whites try to control me into accepting their grand view of the world that always has some irrational explanation of race. I often need a break from Whites so definitely not going to join any Whites only club.

    A couple of years ago I had a conversation with an American couple who lived in Estonia as expats for some years. The couple is as left and globalist as they come politically, despised Trump for everything especially his Ukraine/Russia policy because they think America should strengthen NATO and defend Eastern Europe against big bad Russia. They've traveled extensively throughout Europe. I asked which countries they enjoy visiting the most and they said without hesitation: Eastern Europe especially Hungary. I asked why. She said, "because they kept their culture". She said Western Europe especially France is no longer fun to visit because they've become too crowded, too cosmopolitan and dirty, "lost their character".

    This is the kind of cognitive dissonance that drives me up the wall with leftists. They love Western countries that kept their culture, yet want maximum immigration for all Western countries. It's as if they don't get the connection between immigration and losing one's culture.

    Another alarming thing she told me was that English is now pretty much the unofficial lingua franca of Europe, including in Eastern Europe. You can pretty much get away with just speaking English everywhere. This is a tragedy for Europe. It means they are now under the influence of America's toxic degenerate pop culture and globalism, no doubt thanks to Hollywood movies and TV shows, YouTube, Netflix, Google, Facebook.

    Language is a country's greatest bulwark against cultural invasion. The worst thing any country can do is to adopt English as a second language. As soon as they do that, there goes their sovereignty. Now they are just another Anglo (((globalist))) stooge. Even if their government and older generation try to stop it, the younger generation will grow up thoroughly brainwashed by toxic American culture and want to be just like us because it's fashionable. China and Russia need to block all American movies and TV shows, YouTube, Netflix, Google, FB, and ban learning of English if they want to survive as sovereign nations.

    Eastern Europe has become much more a Americanized since 1989 and since the early 2000s it’s been easy for them to move for work to the U.K., so there are huge incentives to learn English. Nordic Europeans and Germans learn English very young and speak it almost perfectly. The major Southern European or Latin nations (France, Spain, Italy, Greece) start later or don’t learn, so speak with stronger accents and more patterns of diction from their native tongues. For example of the last French presidents I think only Macron has had strong English. Therefore, combined with the PIGS countries doing more to move on or limit immigrants recently, they’re more likely to retain their national cultures.
