Deceit is often the first casualty when a narrative collapses into its own footprint. With that in mind, consider Turkey’s threat to open the migrant-gates as the Immigration Narrative’s World Trade Center 7.
For what seems like ages, or since jews commandeered the media, both sides of the Atlantic have been continually advised of immigration’s myriad benefits. Benefits like ethnic food and…other things, for instance. More immigrants mean more moral frisson for liberals and less majority voting precincts for conservatives. And immigrants have more tangible benefits as well.
They wash BMWs, coax produce from the Earth, replace American IT workers, sleep in janitorial closets, and tear the gizzards from chicken corpses. These things don’t just do themselves. The point being that everyone who matters benefits from what immigration provides: higher housing, lower wages, and elected democrats. More brown people are thus a good thing. If only brown people could keep the story straight.
Because the plain intent of Turkey’s latest salvo is to present immigrants as a weapon pointed at Europe. Do the Turks know something our leading economists do not?
“We’ll Blow Your Mind”: Turkey Threatens Europe With “15,000 Refugees Per Month”
I’m not sure if that’s an example of Ottoman innumeracy, or whether Turkey intends the mind blowing to be a pleasant sensation resulting from reduced migrant flow. 15,000/month is only 180,000 year, which is almost certainly a significant decline from the continent’s present rate. But since stupidity always jostles with malice as the safest assumption, we’ll presume the former and simply consider whatever figure they quote to be synonymous with an ominous much more than you want.
And that is the sound of the immigration narrative collapsing. I’m only uncertain of how many cared to hear it. Because if Europe’s treasonous film of managerialists actually believe its own rhetoric then Turkey just offered them a lucrative human bounty. Wow, more immigrants. Thanks!
But Turkey plainly doesn’t think Europe’s pro-replacement rhetoric is at all sincere, since they’re holding the swarm over Europe’s head like Damocles’ sword and calling everyone with blue eyes a German national socialist. Is Erdogan auditioning for a column at the Bezos blog? Regardless, it all would make for quite a black comedy to overhear Merkel threatening Erodgan if he either released the migrants or acted like releasing the migrants was a bad thing.
Eventually they’ll have to reconcile the opposing white liberal and brown “minority” perspectives on what millions of third-world migrants actually mean for the West. They’re either a net social positive here to happily pay for our retirements or a net negative colonization here to achieve hegemony. Both of which have obvious policy implications the Euro-lib mind is poorly designed to process.
But difficult decisions are always impatient. And as a wagering man, I think the Turks will eventually make their case irrefutable. Just don’t be standing on the sidewalk when the narrative falls.
