Rome to Berlin

A belated huzzah for our Italian friends. Globalist Matteo Renzi has been exhaled from office on the humorously hot air of his own ultimatum. In the determination to consolidate power through a referendum, he made the public an irresistible offer by threatening to resign if his requirements weren’t accommodated. As it turns out that was much like threatening Amy Schumer with a jelly donut: not nearly the disincentive you might have hoped. And so what was originally a drowsy vote on governmental structure became an enthusiastic recall election. I imagine similar rodents will take note in the future to keep their demands decoupled from their office. No sense in letting your country off easy when there’s still millions of Africans on the wrong side of the Mediterranean.

Not that Matteo et al weren’t trying to correct that demographic deficiency. According to this rather astonishing piece practically the entire North African sea-shuttle service is the result of integrated logistical coordination between migrants, smugglers, NGOs, and the Italian Navy. This latter being a branch of the military ostensibly under civilian command. Under Matteo Renzi’s civilian command, to be specific. Below are the key excerpts for brevity.

NGOs are smuggling immigrants into Europe on an industrial scale

NGOs, smugglers, and the mafia in cahoots with the European Union have shipped thousands of illegals into Europe under the pretext of rescuing people, assisted by the Italian coast guard which coordinated their activities.

Human traffickers contact the Italian coast guard in advance to receive support and to pick up their dubious cargo. NGO ships are directed to the “rescue spot” even as those to be rescued are still in Libya. The 15 ships that we observed are owned or leased by NGOs have regularly been seen to leave their Italian ports, head south, stop short of reaching the Libyan coast, pick up their human cargo, and take course back 260 miles to Italy even though the port of Zarzis in Tunis is just 60 mile away from the rescue spot.

Brussels has created particular legislature to protect people traffickers against prosecution. In a dedicated section of an EU resolution entitled On Search and Rescue, the text states that “private ship masters and non-governmental organisations who assist in sea rescues in the Mediterranean Sea should not risk punishment for providing such assistance.”

During the two months of our observation, we have monitored at least 39,000 Africans illegally smuggled into Italy, which was done with the full consent of the Italian and European authorities.

Obviously I can’t speak to the comprehensive veracity of this report other than to remark upon what reality mandates: thousands of sub-saharans are alighting upon Italy, without any native capacity to do so. They are being transported by those who do have the capacity, as the author states, industrially. And to reiterate his point: they are transported over 200 miles farther north to Italy than the near port of Tunis. Thus this is not a “rescue mission,” any more than it would be if I called the Italian coast guard before wading into the surf at Boca Raton for a 3:00pm shuttle cruise to Venice. What appears to be happening instead is a logistically coordinated criminal enterprise between smugglers, NGOs, and the Italian government.

All of which leaves me perpetually flummoxed as to what the word “treason” means. I know it’s a term that remains in service within the language. Though, much like the 10th Amendment, it now seems to exist more in myth or metaphor than in any actual application. But that’s probably because my application is at odds with that of men like Matteo Renzi. I am certain he would be indignant at any suggestion of impropriety, and would state emphatically that he never betrayed the government of Italy. Which is, of course, not at all the same thing as the people of Italy who actually elected him and pay his salary. Though so as long as Westerners elevate executives whose allegiance is to state institutions, abstract principles, or competing tribes, they will continue to stare in bewilderment as their cities become disembarkation points for armies of leering Africans.

So Renzi will proceed to leave office under his own power–this in itself a glowing testament to the peace and tolerance of modern Europeans. And with Cameron, Hollande, and Obama/Clinton already heading to Davos, that leaves only the continent’s kraut crone to bear the weight of a billion migrants. I do think if Hofer had come through we might be hearing the beautiful strains of globalism’s agonal gasping in Europe. Though, with the respite offered by dutiful Austrians, Merkel will strive for another term to dissolve her people.

Though Germans aren’t quite dumb enough to take the hook again with no bait.

Angela Merkel has called for a burqa ban wherever “legally possible” and says the full Islamic veil is “not appropriate” in Germany.

Whenever legally possible, huh? It’s a quirk of the German system of government that the chancellor only has authority to summarily import a limitless number of parasitic aliens, but not the authority to tell them how to dress. We have to maintain a reasonable separation of powers, you see.

But I’m not against a burqa ban. Perhaps it will dissuade some small minority of muslims from joining their fellow colonists. Though in intent and effect, the proposal is strictly gesture. It’s truly a strain on man’s credulity to propose that inanimate textiles represent a graver threat to the German people than those alien entities walking about inside them. It is not that burqas are “not appropriate” in Germany, but muslims. Clothing isn’t the actual problem, and millions of brown foreigners not wearing sacks with eye-holes isn’t the actual solution.

While Merkel and her barren womb are utterly indifferent to the welfare of German people, she is supremely concerned with the welfare of Angela Merkel. And that creature unmistakably detects a storm on the air. Brexit, Trump, and now Renzi…For Europe’s cagey traitors it’s set your sail to the wind or be blown against the shoals. Thus before she is finally swept to history’s contempt, we can expect many more empty concessions from the last leader of Lagos.

  1. Haven’t been back in Europe since I emigrated in ’04, but still have an ex-wife and friends living there. Seems to me that it’s too late for Europe’s nations to reclaim full sovereignty and their varying but now largely adulterated cultures. The EU might be toast, but the Islamic seeding has sprouted, flowered and fruited and it’s no longer possible to turn back that process; stay its further growth, perhaps, but that’s about it. Then again, if there were radical decentralization and a return to local autonomy, perhaps localized pogroms might make migrants migrate again, at least while they’re still a minority; not likely, however. Europe has long been slated for destruction by long-time enemies.

  3. A dispatch from Germany: Merkel’s party, the CDU, is currently holding its annual convention. Step-Mutti Angela was up for re-election as party chair, and duly got re-elected with roundabout 89 per cent of the vote. Almost commie level, yes, but 95 plus x per cent results are customary in such highly visible and symbolic votes. So the 89 per cent are seen as a bit of a rebuke, delivered unspectacularly but clear enough for all in the know to get the message.

    All of this is entirely due to the AfD ascendancy, which already cost the CDU dearly in some state elections. It’s this, and the stirring of the plebes generally, that the CDU party delegates reacted with their votes. So even if the AfD is no challenge yet nationally in next year’s federal election, Merkel will adapt her rhetoric (she made some more verbal gestures beyond the burka thingy) so as to bring the gullible part of conservative voters back into the fold. Of course it’s all purely tactical, cucky CDUe stuff, but it will have its limited impact nonetheless because in my estimate fokks here in Germany are about six years behind the US learning curve as regards the instinctive betrayal of their voters by cuck CDUe.

    Delegates at the party convention also threw one spammer halfway substantive into the wheels of the CDU leadership machinery by voting to write an abolition of double citizenship into the party’s electoral platform, demanding a return to the earlier rule where Turks etc. born in Germany upon reaching adulthood had to opt for one nationality instead of being able to retain both. Of course there shouldn’t have been the option of German nationality in the first place, but I guess baby steps in the right direction are better than none at all. In any case the Social Democrats, current and future partners of the CDU in the ruling “Grand Coalition,” promptly cried havoc.

    Downstream, rivers of blood and all that. It’s just a question of whether it will be Mississippi, Rhine oder Cedar Creek level.

    • Thanks for the update, very informative.

      The malign effects of dual-citizenship is something I’ve intended to write on for some time. That it creates huge incentives for mischief among the aliyah-eligible is not nearly well-enough discussed. Having pre-established bolt-holes makes conscientious stewardship of the less emotionally resonant of your citizenships much less pressing. The point should be: foul this nest and there’s none remaining for you. Of course nest fouling is precisely the Muslim intent, so this may not trigger the same contemplation among Turks as I expect it would with Ancient Friends. Though still the inherent conflicts of interest with dual citizenship are plain, and should be eliminated as a simple matter of state hygiene.

      By the way, do you have any sense of AfD? Is it a movement to become excited about (certainly I imagine it would be quite exciting compared to Merkel)? Or is it more of a “We’ll make you feel better about being dispossessed” type outfit?

      • Thanks for the kind words.

        I guess the final word about the AfD is not yet spoken. Three (?) years ago it started out pretty much as a party of professors and technocrats who took a stand against the EU and national establishments in the unfolding Greek financial crisis. A more rational energy policy (anti-anti-nuclear) was the second programmatic leg they developed, while they were more hesitant about articulating an anti-immigration / anti-Muslim position. I guess that to a large extent they did it only as a way to accomodate the rubes whom their more patriotically assertive financial policy ideas had attracted to the party.

        As the Greek crisis moved beyond its peak and receded into the background of German political consciousness, and while immigration and multi-culti issues moved to the fore (even before step-Mutti’s hormones ran amok in 2015), a leadership struggle in the AfD broke out. Essentially it was between the white-collar founder technocrats who wanted to keep prioritzing “respectable” economic issues, and a younger and more eastern-born generation whose focus was more on identity and immigration. Long story short, the latter group won, and the AfD became more “hardline” — by contemporary German standards, that is.

        So far, so good. But there is always the temptation of “moderation,” as a supposedly small price to pay for the admission to polite society. So ultimately the jury is still out, I guess. But some initial storms have been weathered, and it’s not completely delusional to pin some hopes on AfD.

        The current AfD chairwoman though, Frauke Petry, is a decent but rather weak figure, and probably will only play a transitory role. The lineup behind her seems to be more masculine, and more hardline again. We’ll have to see how the 2017 campaign runup will rearrange the dominoes intra-AfD.

        Another positive sign: At least two feisty and articulate German intellectual heavyweights have recently, and very publicly, joined the party, making the AfD less easily denouncable as a collection of Eastern doofuses.

        So there are grounds to be cautiously optimistic about the AfD. But it will still be a very long and very uphill struggle. My two cents.

      • Again, I appreciate the useful information. One other question your remarks led me to wonder…

        At least two feisty and articulate German intellectual heavyweights have recently, and very publicly, joined the party, making the AfD less easily denouncable as a collection of Eastern doofuses.

        How pervasive is the sense of Western snobbery (whether well-justified or not) vis-a-vis former East Germans in the country? And if significant, is the disdain generally reciprocated? Do Germans typically see themselves as one people with regional flavors, or fundamentally distinct as Easterners and Westerners?

        I often think slavery was the second dumbest institution the people of the American South ever entered. The first being a union with the people of the North. We’re all in the same existential basket of deplorables now, though as a prudent rule the best marriages between contemptuous partners are the ones that don’t happen.

      • Herzog, thanks for the information. I don’t know much about the AfD either, but it seems to me that you all are faced with a choice similar to the one we just faced. I have my doubts about the US surviving in its present form under even ideal circumstances, but knew that allowing 4 years of clinton importing a million plus(legally) a year while leaving the border open to countless other invaders would be the end of us for certain, so I voted Trump. Enthusiastically. And while I remain less than thrilled about the idea of mnuchin running the treasury, Id much rather have the squid looting us than see muchrooms clouds dotting the horizon. If yall allow Merkel and her ilk to import a couple million more Africans for another term, you are probably finished, too.

  4. I’m truly mystified by breathtaking stupidity. Import millions of muslims, but hey, they’ll have to dress like us, and that’ll make ’em German. Problem solved! NEXT!

    • Yes, I think thats the idea. Make them abandon some small part of their indigenous garb and they will magically adopt German cultural norms. Its also serves the ancillary benefits of making it slightly less obvious to the Germans not paying attention that they are being overrun since instead of headscarves everywhere, you will just see brown faces, and it will also help convince the rubes that the government is “doing something”. How this burka ban will go is as predictable as from which direction the sun will rise tomorrow. They will form their little enclaves where they have a strong majority, and they will disobey the burka ban, daring Merkel and her police to do something about it. Since their prisons are already overflowing with Muslims, it will mostly be ignored, especially in the heavily muslim ghettos. However, since the welcome mat will be left in place for more, these enclaves will eventually fill most cities, effectively nullifying this pointless law in its entirety.

  5. Quest’anima consola, e giubilar mi fa!

    Glaube, Liebster!
    Lernst du heut und hier das Fürchten nicht,
    an andrem Ort, zu andrer Zeit
    schwerlich erfährst du’s je.

  6. My two cents re Porter’s follow-up question on West Germans’ snobbery toward their Eastern brethren (of all imaginable genders, obviously):

    First, it is my impression that anti-Easterner animus among Western Germans grows and declines pretty much in proportion to their political outlook: It gets stronger the further one is on the left, declines the further one is on the right. This was so even before the rise of the AfD. Its disproportionate strength in the eastern federal states now provides a welcome rationale and rationalization for leftists’ dislike of the Easterners. But leftists didn’t really need that extra excuse: Since German reunification by definition was a national project, the West German left always held a grudge against the Easterners who by their sheer existence reminded us that we were a nation and a people.

    From this, it follows that Westerners qualitatively cannot dislike Easterners as they might, in former times, have allowed themselves to dislike a different people. Rather, Western anti-Eastern animus, to the extent that it exists (which overall I would rate as not all that intense) is rooted in the distinct–even if repressed and inarticulate–feeling that Easterners are very much Germans. Mostly, it’s precisely because Easterners are living reminders for Westerners that nationality / ethnicity is alive and not a thing of the past that they draw the animus of leftist Westerners.

    On a different level, even non-leftist Westerners may sometimes feel embarrassed by the lesser degree of sophistication in at least parts of the eastern population, mostly among some rural folks. In the towns, the gap is closing rather rapidly, as Easterners catch up (but apparently remain patriotic to a larger degree nonetheless). But, truth be told, the eastern rural areas and their inhabitants can sometimes be depressing in their ugliness and lack of joy even to this patriotic Westerner. Nonetheless they are my people.

  7. “NGOs, smugglers, and the mafia in cahoots with the European Union have shipped thousands of illegals into Europe under the pretext of rescuing people, assisted by the Italian coast guard which coordinated their activities.”

    NGOs, mafia, eurocrats, Italian coast guard….

    Globalism sure makes strange bedfellows. But then again I suppose those first three are basically the same.
