Russia, Serbia, Hungary, Austria, and Germany: What’s wrong with this picture?

europe 1939

By Susan D. Harris

How ironic is it that Austria and Germany – countries that saw a mass exodus of Jewish refugees in the 20th Century – are now the largest importers of Muslim refugees in the 21st?

Importers” seems a proper word, as German Chancellor Angela Merkel seems to have summoned her immigrants from a distance – not unlike Dracula willing his victims from their beds to the garden. In so doing, she instigated an immigration emergency in Europe; then arrogantly scolded other EU countries who didn’t immediately march in lockstep with her dream (or nightmare) of an Islamic Europe.

Unlike the Jewish refugees from pre-WWII Europe, who by and large lived peacefully and prosperously in any region they settled, it is well-known that Islamic followers do not assimilate well. As Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal pointed out earlier this year:

The huge issue with non-assimilation is the fact that people want to come to our country but not adopt our values – in some cases, not adopt our language, in some cases, want to set apart their own enclaves and continue to hold on to their own values. I think it is dangerous in America and it’s dangerous in Europe.”

So Europe, led by Germany, capitulates to Islam and helps President Obama orchestrate the fall of Western civilization. (President Obama began the Arab Spring with a speech in Cairo and never looked back, pulling our troops out of Iraq and eventually supplying the radical Islamic group ISIS with modern, heavy-grade, American weapons.)

Many Americans didn’t even realize there was an immigration problem until they started asking, “Why are the trains stopped in Budapest? And, “Should we care?”

Across the line they poured from Serbia into Hungary…thousands of people labeled refugees or migrants…with Serbia begging Hungry not to draw a line in the sand because virtually none of the immigrants passing through want to stay in Serbia.

Serbia, Hungary, Austria, and Germany: What’s wrong with this picture? History shows us that it never bodes well with the world when grave crises arise in those areas.

And let’s not forget about Russia – who, similar to her actions prior to WWII, keeps making secret alliances while the world is busy putting out other fires. Russia has warships sailing the English Channeldocking in Iran for naval training, and unapologetically has arms and advisors on the ground in Syria. Meanwhile, seemingly ages ago in the 24-hour news cycle, President Putin invaded the Crimea with the same nationalist excuses Hitler used for going into the Sudetenland and Danzig. Hitler was emboldened by a weak Western leader named Chamberlain; Putin by a weak Western leader named Obama.

Russia is also carrying on a very talked about affair with China, developing “a very intimate and very close political, economic and cultural relationship, and a certain degree of cooperation in the field of security.” No alliances they say, just a few harmless glasses of champagne, comparison of sanctions, and sharing of Hillary Clinton’s emails between friends. How could that possibly impact the U.S.?

Italy started crying ‘uncle’ over the immigrant crisis earlier this year. The Italian government has been doing battle with their own local towns and regions that are refusing to take immigrants. Three months ago, those big-hearted countries of Austria, France and Switzerland were spitting asylum seekers right back onto Italian soil. Italian Prime Minister Renzi told everyone the unfolding crisis “should not be underestimated” – but nobody listened.

Over in Turkey, they’re having dreams of the old Ottoman Empire: President Erdogan “has allied the country not only with the conservative Sunni Muslims of Saudi Arabia, but with the Muslim Brotherhood regime of former President Morsi in Egypt, and with the Sunni militant Palestinian group Hamas.” – The Daily Mail

Every time the world blinks, Turkey kills some more Kurds, showing Ankara still festers with a passionate hatred akin to the old “Armenian problem.”

At the same time back in Germany…always back in Germany…there is talk of a “Fourth Reich.” Spiegel online, exploring rumors of Germany accumulating too much power in the eurozone, explained:

But further reflection on the word “Reich,” or empire, may not be entirely out of place. The term refers to a dominion, with a central power exerting control over many different peoples. According to this definition, would it be wrong to speak of a German Reich in the economic realm?”

But now this German democracy, interwoven with national-socialism, is wielding power beyond its monetary domination, dragging Europe into a potentially devastating cultural and humanitarian crisis. The potential for widespread terrorism hasn’t even been assessed yet.

And what of America?

Many Americans are scratching their heads at pro-immigration rallies in Germany, Austria, and Hungary. In Germany, if you’re opposed to mass immigration of questionable foreigners, you’re either a xenophobe or a neo-Nazi. There is no in between. As for the rest of Europe, they embrace the idea that they are global citizens.

Regular Americans in the fly-over states haven’t yet been brainwashed, like Europe has, with the United Nation’s Global Citizen worldview.

A perfect day for a global citizen means having dinner at the new Bhutanese restaurant with your Japanese friends; buying a fashionable sari to wear to theBlack European Women’s Council dinner; and stopping at the Unitarian church to light a candle for the people of Myanmar. You pat yourself on the back at the end of the day for living and loving diversity.

You’re thinking of hosting an immigrant family; even the Pope thinks you’re cool. It puffs you all up inside, and eventually the headiness of being a global citizen pushes all those silly ideas of national sovereignty, individuality, and cultural pride right out of your mind.

You are one with the universe; and the world shines a little brighter because of your open-mindedness. Socialism sounds more like what you do on Facebook; Capitalism is so yesterday.

These are the people cheering the influx of immigrants in Europe. They believe they are better and smarter than those God-obsessed, gun-loving Americans.

Unfortunately they are here in America too; it’s just that not everyone’s on board yet. We’ll see more and more pro-immigration rallies; and though they will be the minority, their voice will be loud.

Twenty-seven Iraqi Christian asylum seekers are being held by ICE at a San Diego detention facility; but we’ll be opening the floodgates to Middle East Muslims quicker than you can say Allahu Akbar.

At least liberals won’t have to waste their time with anti-war protests; like ancient Troy, most countries will have to go no further than their own cities to meet the enemy.

America lacks integrity, her militarily is weak, and her morals have disintegrated like a moth-eaten wool sweater. We’re in no shape to fight, or win, a war. And with no Winston Churchill to ride to the rescue, neither is Europe.

It’s important to remember how many times Churchill was scorned for his warnings before the bombs started dropping. Prime Minister Netanyahu has repeatedly sounded similar alarms. But in the 21st Century, with America backing a nuclearIran who is itching to wipe Israel off the map, there may not be too many chances to say, “That guy was right! Get him back here!”


BLOG POST: I don’t usually blog but…New Year’s Eve 2013…

new years eve

I don’t usually “blog.” I try to keep my writing to a certain standard and not jabber on with my personal views. I am making one exception today. 

Man what a rotten New Years Eve TV wise. And I mean this in a MUCH bigger way than “Gee, the TV shows weren’t much.”

I know I know, some of you go to bed, never watch – but this is my take after decades of watching…

So we had what? Kathy Griffin, that immoral trollop over with Anderson (all the gay guys watch me cuz I’m gay) Cooper. They had Melissa (all the lesbians watch me cuz I’m gay) Etheridge and some other guests. Just a nice little end-of-days romp in the woods. (CNN was obviously so impressed with Griffin’s simulated oral sex on Anderson last year that they brought her back again!)

Bill Hemmer and Elisabeth Hasselbeck – B-O-R-I-N-G. Hasselbeck was no Megyn Kelly, and although I’m not a HUGE Kelly fan, her absence on New Years Eve made Hasselbeck look like someone’s 10-year-old little sister was “trying” to fill in.

Meanwhile, they get Megyn Kelly LIVE on the phone closer to midnight, who shows a couple of pics and talks about some Mardi Gras-like-cheesy-place she is spending New Years Eve with “her man.” Complete with belly dancers (she said.) It sounded more like they were at a New Orleans brothel and you just kinda went, “ewwww.” BUT – according to Kelly – she never wanted to be anywhere else for New Years ever again! Yee haw.

Meanwhile Phil Keating was in South Beach Florida, a hellhole of hedonistic immorality. He kept trying to talk to people there thru the night and most everyone either looked like they wanted to kill him or walked away from him. (Some were so far drugged out they couldn’t respond or even walk). Others were just kinda like…”Hey.” Um….okay.

At some point, Fox News said we were going to watch Susan Boyle sing Auld Lang Syne. Well….kinda. They put her up in a box in the corner of the screen and then played highlights from the night – complete with audio overtaking her voice. That was total chaos. Original idea probably sounded good in someone’s drunken head.

And then just a quick word about Times Square. How sick is it that everyone is herded into pens – LITERALLY – HOURS before the ball drops – can’t leave even to go to the bathroom or get a hot cocoa. Well, you COULD, you just can’t come back. Really.Everyone has to be under 30 – I estimate, in top physical condition, and willing to stay in wind chills most people couldn’t tolerate while not drinking or going to the bathroom! It’s sick! But oh boy! They’ve got those stupid blue Nivea balloons and hats every year to keep them happy. Can anyone say POLICE STATE? (And great to have a German company promote themselves year after year in America’s most internationally viewed television event. Oh, and by the way, in 2011 Nivea published a map on their website that conveniently LEFT OFF ISRAEL. Great to know there aren’t any Nazi’s left over there.)

Dick Clark’s Rockin New Years Eve – um. Yeah. That went to the dogs years ago. If I see one more black man come out with the whole “homeboy vaudeville shtick” I’m gonna puke. Wow – look, I’m tough – I walk and talk like a gang member – love me! And of course – none of them can sing. They just come out and chant mindless rhymes. Impressive if you’re 5. (If only Bill Cosby could have come out and given them that “serious” look and thrown them off the stage.)

Then there was the Duck Dynasty interview…. Somebody wake me when it’s over. Bill Hemmer: “What’s coming up in the next season?”

“Well, we’ve got a lot of stuff going on.”

“Who is the first to break their New Years Resolutions?”

“We don’t really make any” (an answer I actually kinda liked because I get sick of hearing people talk about “resolutions” and I got the idea the Duck Dynasty guy didn’t give a rats bum about it either. Actually he and his wife looked like they didn’t give a rats bum about anything in particular.)

….you got the picture. The Duck Dynasty couple were nice enough, but it was like pulling two random people off the street! And when there was nothing left to ask them…Hemmer and Elisabeth kept asking them MORE questions that weren’t interesting and they had no interesting answers for.

Just did a Google search and found out it was Melissa Etheridge who sang John Lennon’s “Imagine” in Times Square. Surprised to find most other people also said she completely slaughtered it. I abhor the song because of it’s lyrics, but you have to admit that to the EAR anyway – the MELODY and Lennon’s voice are quite soothing. I said to mom – “Wow, they couldn’t even play Lennon, someone is SLAUGHTERING IT!”

Miley Cyrus, whom everyone had previously agreed was some sort of Satanic elf run amok seemed to get praises from on-air anchors last night – and at the very least promoted in a positive light. Hemmer and Elisabeth even promoted her – smiling and showing a clip from a video as she stuck her tongue out and spanked an obese black woman who was gladly bent over. Wow. That was FUN.

Look, I don’t tune in for a church service. If people want to get a little crazy – fine. But at least entertain. There was NO entertainment.

In Nashville, the music note dropped as three guys – perhaps one of them Hank Williams Jr. who we were told had performed but we never really saw – slaughtered Auld Lang Syne as they stumbled about the stage with their backs mostly to the audience.

(In the nearest city to me, we could hear the fireworks from our First Night celebration. We don’t have New Year’s Eve, we have First Night – originally started by a bunch of Boston hippies and was supposed to not emphasize alcohol consumption. (Excuse me while I laugh). So, basically all the liberal “artistic” people and gang members go downtown in a chaotic mess of “hidden” drugs and alcohol and have a whooping good time. The fights, arrests and stabbings are usually covered up. Only a gunshot makes it to the news when it happens.)

In short, New Year’s Eve – on television – was a colossal let down. Actually, it made one want to retire from society completely. At the very least one wanted to take a shower and try to scrub off the acquired filth.

If anyone wanted to confirm that civilized society – as we used to know it – is dead…last night did it. If anyone wants to confirm that humor, comedy and intelligence are dead…last night did that too.
