The liberal mask behind which Europe's political, academic and financial elite hide their grand plan to undermine the solidarity of the working classes by flooding the continent with unskilled, illiterate, illegal immigrants from impoversished and conflict stricken third world nations took a massive hit on Friday, when Italy's Former Prime Minister and current leader of The Democratic Party Matteo Renzi, said his country has "no moral duty to take in migrants", sharply toughening his stance over surging numbers of asylum seekers being ferried to Italian shores by boats operated by political action groups masquerading as refugee charities.
Renzi's U-Turn follows a similar change of position by Angela Merkel, who infamously accepted nearly 1 million mostly Syrian refugees in 2015, only to see a surge in terrorist attacks across Germany and Europe, and a plunge in her popularity as a result of an angry social backlash, prompting her to quietly but forcefully end Germany's "open door" policy. It is now known that well over half those arrivals were not actually refugees from Syria but economic migrants from many parts of Africa, the middle east and south east Asia.
Now it's Italy turn to try anything that might stem the flow.
Last week we reported that with thousands of new arrivals each week in Italy (up 20% over on last year,) the government in Rome has threatened to close its ports to privately-funded aid boats - many of which are rumored to belong to organizations linked to the Hungarian - American billionaire financial trader George Soros, a self - styled Marxist who is on record as having vowed to destroy European and American civilisation and replace it with some kind of global, authoritarian socialist meritocracy.
Alternatively the Italian authorities may insist that funding be cut to EU countries which fail to help. Poland, Hungary, The Czech Tepublic and several other smaller EU nations are already making a united stand against Brussels imposed immigrant quotas. Italy's interior minister Marco Minniti said angry of the migrant traffickers: "They are sailing under the flags of various European countries. If the only ports where refugees are taken to are Italian, something is not working. This is the heart of the question."
One can see why Italy may be angry: with the Balkan corridor closed by non EU nations through which migrants must pass on the way to Germany, France, Netherlands, Austria and Sweden, the nations with the most liberal immigration policies and the most lax and generous welfare systems, Italy has emerged as the only available port of entry into Europe, although there are reports of migrants arriving on Spanish shores after that nation had not previously been troubled by the migration crisis.
More than 600,000 migrants have reached Italy over the past four years, the vast majority arriving by boat from Libya. About 85,000 have come ashore this year alone, accounting for the vast majority of European migrant arrivals.
As happened in Germany two years agoand is ongoing in Sweden (but glosed over by mainstram media in both nations), the popular reaction is one of growing anger and resentment at the way politically correct elitists of the EUare appeasing the religious prejudices of migrants by insisting onestablished population (assimilated migrants included) by allowing them to behave in ways which are totally unacceptable in European and American societies . However, the question has emerged: how does a "moral", liberal Europe square up to what is a growing undercurrent of resentment toward migrants, something traditionally associated with various loathed (by the establishment) populist parties? After all, if the same establishment admitted that what the "populists" offer is the right course of action, then a political crisis would ensue.
That did not stop Italy's former PM Matteo Renzi from saying that "we need to free ourselves from a sense of guilt. We do not have the moral duty to welcome into Italy people who are worse off than ourselves," the Democratic Party leader has written a book on the immigrant crisis, excerpts of which were released ahead of publication on the PD website.
"There has to be a fixed number of arrivals," he said, adding that Italy should help migrants in their home countries, and sounding suspiciously close like Italy's anti-immigrant parties.
Sure enough, underscoring the sensitivity of the issue - and just how hypocritical Europe's liberal crown is - Renzi's comments were swiftly removed from the website, but not before they had generated a backlash among some PD supporters, and glee in the right-wing camp
