A while ago I blogged about the news (via the Reference Frame blog) that the Italian navy was purposefully picking up ‘migrants’ in the Mediterranean — only 13 miles off the Libyan coast. How’s that for service?
Now, the New Observer Online is reporting the story as well, with new details.
I mean, rescuing them out of the water is questionable enough, at least if they are to be brought to Italy instead of sent back, but deliberately going to fetch them? Obviously there is intention at work here, not happenstance.
10,000 in 2 days is a lot of people; imagine if this is a trend. Imagine the results if the numbers continue to increase.
It’s bad form to rub it in, but I’ve heard many Italian-Americans boast that Italy would never end up like France or Britain, swamped by hostile ‘migrants’ because the Italians are tough and not the least bit politically correct. Well, they may be basing that belief on the behavior of some Italian-Americans, such as the urban Italian-Americans of the past. But it definitely appears that the Italian politicians are globalist one-world fanatics like the rest of their class in Europe and the West generally. And if the average Italian citizen is not happy with this state of affairs it seems they are not making much of a fuss about it. But then again, neither is the average American.
When I posted the link to the blog where I first read of this bizarre ferry service, I had one comment, from someone in Europe who insisted that the EU is ‘open and democratic’. I responded in a less than patient way; I no longer have time for such nonsense. Who can honestly, with a straight face, defend the EU is after reading so many stories like this?
