Just Can’t Make This Stuff Up – Italy and EU Strike Deal to Pay Libya To Keep Migrants in North Africa…

You really must reflect upon this recent media release to fully grasp the scope of the exhibited EU sanctimony.

There’s a level of intellectual dishonesty that increases in direct proportion to the scale of Hypocrisy (X Axis) and Liberalism (Y Axis), that is to say “it becomes exponential”.

This article from UK Express is in the exponentially sanctimonious zone:

eu-hypocrisy

Italy and the EU have decided upon a plan to pay Libya and Tunisia to keep the unwanted African continent migrants from crossing the Mediterranean sea.  –SEE HERE

[…] Tusk added: “(It is) the only way to gain control over migration in Europe. The goal is within our reach. Europe should and will stand by Italy in sharing responsibility.”

Italy has already set up a fund of £171 million to help Libya, Tunisia and Nigeria deter migrants from traveling to Europe. (more)

For those unfamiliar with the history here, this is the EXACT SAME PLAN that existed in 2010 between the EU (France) and Libya prior to Nicolas Sarkozy’s plan to kill Maummar Gaddaffi because he no longer liked the terms of the agreement.

Gaddafi signs over 14-billion-dollars in contracts with Francesarkozy-clinton

France's President Nicolas Sarkozy (2ndL) accompanies yesterday Mahmud Jibril (C) and Ali al-Essawi (R) of Libya's rebel national council, two envoys from Libya's opposition, next to his interpreter (L), after receiving them at the Elysee presidential Palace in Paris. France recognised today Libya's opposition national council as the country's "legitimate representative", as its envoys seek help against strongman Moamer Muammar Gaddafi, whose forces are trying to crush the popular uprising

March 2011– France’s President Nicolas Sarkozy (2ndL) accompanies Mahmud Jibril (C) and Ali al-Essawi (R) of Libya’s rebel national council, two envoys from Libya’s opposition, next to his interpreter (L), after receiving them at the Elysee presidential Palace in Paris. France recognized today Libya’s opposition national council as the country’s “legitimate representative”, as its envoys seek help against strongman Muammar Gaddafi, whose forces are trying to crush the popular uprising

Insert Big Flashy Hypocrisy Sign Here.

Not only is the EU is doing the exact same thing again; but also think about this in relationship to the EU’s pearl-clutching outrage over President Trump not taking in “Syrian” refugees.

♦ America not taking Syrian refugees = Terrible Trump
♦ The EU not taking in Libyan refugees = Magnanimous EU.

Seriously?

Apparently, if America was paying Assad then not taking refugees would be noble, or something.

You just cannot make this stuff up.

Perfect timing though….

Maybe, just maybe, some enterprising reporter will ask the representative folks in Brussels to explain how they reconcile their discrimination against Africa and morale outrage against President Trump.  Then again, eh, never mind.

That must be similar to the trumpian logic bomb where no-one in the U.S. media thinks to ask Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull:

How is it safe for America to take Australia’s refugees, but not safe for Australia to take them in?

  1. It is always a temptation to an armed and agile nation
    To call upon a neighbour and to say: —
    “We invaded you last night–we are quite prepared to fight,
    Unless you pay us cash to go away.”

    And that is called asking for Dane-geld,
    And the people who ask it explain
    That you’ve only to pay ’em the Dane-geld
    And then you’ll get rid of the Dane!

    It is always a temptation for a rich and lazy nation,
    To puff and look important and to say: —
    “Though we know we should defeat you, we have not the time to meet you.
    We will therefore pay you cash to go away.”

    And that is called paying the Dane-geld;
    But we’ve proved it again and again,
    That if once you have paid him the Dane-geld
    You never get rid of the Dane.

    It is wrong to put temptation in the path of any nation,
    For fear they should succumb and go astray;
    So when you are requested to pay up or be molested,
    You will find it better policy to say: —

    “We never pay any-one Dane-geld,
    No matter how trifling the cost;
    For the end of that game is oppression and shame,
    And the nation that pays it is lost!”

      Allowing the antifa to intimidate people like Milo and McInnes into silence is our own, internal form of Dane-geld. It needs to be stopped now.

      There needs to be a price for rioting and destruction. Average Americans who just want to go about their business should not have to pay it. The rioters and destroyers — and those who finance and instigate them — should pay it.

      It does seem like the entire intent of the “planners” is to extract by force as much of the taxpayers wealth as they can; if refugees/migrants show up, taxpayers must supply their every need/want (and lose their freedoms while they’re at it); if said aliens are repatriated, taxpayers bear the cost — and how many times can said aliens repeat the performance? Once a month?

      The “planners” need to be flushed out and prosecuted — whoever and wherever they are.
      What a colossal scam!

    “The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting it to come out different” — Falsely attributed to Einstein and Ben Franklin due to Internet myths. Whoever first said it; the meaning is clear. Michael Savage may be right, Liberalism is a Mental Disorder. If it’s not insanity than it is pure stupidity. Yet we see this maxim played out decade after decade, mostly by the Left who refuse to accept the fact that their beliefs are plainly wrong.

    Then I dont went to hear a single european criticizing Trump immigration actions/policies.

    When you pay terrorist to forcefully kill/sink/stop migrant to board ships on the coast,
    you cant turn around and say that, improving the US vetting process is “like being hitler”

    Europe, you are complete lunatics.

    The US is still under Trump the country that accept the most refugee/migrant/foreigners in the entire world. This is also why we should ignore anyone telling us we need to take more of THEIR migrants.

    simply NO

    the opposite need to be done.. the US need to send the millions of “dreamers” to all the countries that ask us to take in plane loads of muslim migrants.

    So australia… how many illegal migrant currently in our US prison are you willing to take in ?
    Europe, ready to help with our 30 million illegal immigration problem ? germany how many MS13 gang memebers are you willing to take ? etc.. etc..

    tired of the bs… Trump is still the most charitable leader when it come to immigration.

      I hope you will realise that the EU is not one body of people with common views. Unfortunately extremist minorities are the most vocal. Our lefties are going nuts over President Trump and the limited migration moratorium is just another thing to complain about. But here is the thing. The tide is turning. Right thinking people who are now in the vast majority are opposed to Islamic migration of any kind for any purpose. At the same time our own countries are now literally beginning to collapse under the pressure of the Middle East exodus, the lefties are becoming more vocal. The bold truth certainly in the UK insofar as it our place to have a view, is that a huge chunk of the population was rooting for President Trump from the day he got started. We like everything he represents and only wish we had leaders with a similar compass and purpose. But in general you need to shut your ears to the complete nonsense in the MSM all of which is left wing luvvies hell bent on wrecking the West. We here have had enough of the Middle East. Trust me.

It’s hard to take when they call him Hitler and vilify any company, business, or spokesman who supports him or even engages with him. Just saw Elon Musk get his ass handed to him on twitter for even thinking of going to the WH meeting with a “fascist” and “racist”.

    What’s even whackier still – is this one of of Qaddafi’s functions. And the one of the reasons why Ohillary had to kill him off. Qaddafi, for all his shortcomings, was stemming the flow of jihadi migrants into EU. This was partially the reasoning WHY he was left along. In addition to the destabilization of the region and the supply of weapons to Assads enemies (who happen to be OURS ALSO) – opening the floodgates to EU through Libya, is yet another reason why OHillery had to get him offed.

    All of this time, the boats could have been returned. But that would have required the political will and strength to follow through. Now, 3-4 years later, they are adding in some new bones: essentially, protection money. Where does this end?? These idiot bureaucrats are reflexively offering money (like offering reparations to BLM!) because they still have no political will to protect the Europeans over the objections, crying and violence of the Globalists’ lefties.

      Maybe the way to go is to increase the administrative burden to the point where it is going to take 10 pounds of difficult-to-complete paper that will require several years of review by dozens of govt officials in order to be satisfactorily complete. That ought to gum up the works legally. You can’t challenge government inefficiency in court. Hell, that’s how the government functions. What are they going to do – have a judge order the govt to become more efficient?

      And, upon review, one dropped comma or a misspelled word will be enough to require the entire thing be done over again.

      Don’t make those papers accessible on the internet – they have to be mailed, snail-mail, to everyone interested in immigrating. And – the US govt will not accept anything that is not mailed, surface mail, back to it for processing.

    Instead of picking them up and taking them to Italy, pick them up and deliver them back to the Libyan surf zone. Outfit them all with life preservers and push ’em overboard. They can swim to shore or get washed in by the waves. Confiscate any vessels and give them to Italian fishermen.
