The legacy media is adept at using shocking images to exploit our emotions and generate political momentum. You wil be familiar with this tragic image from 2015. It has gained global attention and was presented as the ace card in the debate on facilitating massive and unprecented immigration into Europe. It was also cynically staged for the camera.
It shows the drowned body of three-year-old Alan Kurdi. He lost his life as his father sought to flee Turkey – Turkey being a popular holiday spot for millions of British tourists. The Kurdi family has been living in Turkey for three years. They were not fleeing persecution. The little boy’s father sought economic opportunism and it was in pursuance oif this he risked the lives of his boys to the wills of people smugglers. The mainstream political/media were entirely disinterested in this back story – their agenda was to ruthlessly leverage this image to push the open borders agenda and very quickly the EU political class were exploiting the emotional appeal it has to prize open their borders to literally MILLIONS of third world migrants. The image of a dead little boy was enough to bring about what may prove to be the utter transformation of Europe with Angela Merkel infamously pledging that Germany (and by definition the rest of the EU) …
“On the issue of an upper limit, my position is clear,” Merkel said in an interview broadcast live on Germany’s ARD on Sunday. “I won’t accept one.”
So it was that Angela invited in millions from the third world to Europe and revelled in her virtue signalling insanity.
But the times they are a changing. Italy, under new political management thanks to people electing the Five Star Movement and The League, have said a resolute NO to accepting any more boats loaded up with North African immigrants.
Italy will continue to block rescue boats carrying migrants looking to dock in its ports, its interior minister announced Saturday. The position escalates the new populist government’s fight with other European countries on migration and asylum, thorny issues that have spurred intense debate in the U.S. as well.
It is perfectly undertandable WHY the new Italian government should take this position. More than half-a-million so-called “refugees” have arrived in Italy over a three year period – more than the entire population of Tuscan capital Florence. This is causing huge local concern and resentment which was reflected in the election results. But Italy making a stand against accept more NGO ferried immigrants has caused Angela Merkel a problem as she herself comes under domestic pressure on the same issue of the tsunami of immigration she has presided over. What to do?
Cue the fauxtographers. Look – new images emerge of drowned children just as Italy and others want to halt the massive people trafficing supported by the NGOs
Again we are having our emotions manipulated by those who ruthlessly seek to keep our borders open to as many who want to come to our lands.
No one wants children to drown. The best way to stop this is to stop ALL the boats and send the message to the people smugglers that the NGO provided free ferry service to Europe is over.
All boats should be returned without exception. The choice is clear. If the EU political class continue collusion with the NGOs in pursuance of the Soros Open Borders agenda, we will have more drowned children with camera lenses zooming in on their corpses. Is that a price worth paying?
Save lives. Stop the boats. Ban the NGOs.
