And here is the latest episode of “Stuck on Stupid.” I truly love it when folks pipe up after a horrific event and state the absolute obvious. And so it appears to be happening in Europe. But I just gotta wonder, will they be able to survive their own ignorance and lack of spine?
As reported by the UK Telegraph:
“Terrorists are using the migration crisis to enter Europe and plot atrocities across the continent, the European Union’s own border agency has admitted.
“In a report which lays bare the concerns about the EU’s porous borders, Frontex conceded that it does not know the true number of migrants who have crossed into the continent and has no way of tracking them.
“Frontex said that EU member states had reported a record 1.82 million illegal border crossings last year, six times higher than the previous record set in 2014.
“However, it admitted that the number of illegal crossings is an underestimation because so many migrants have ‘continued their journey without being detected.’
“It warned that a ‘staggering number’ of EU citizens have travelled to Syria to fight with Isil [ISIS] and that they are now posing as refugees to gain entry to Europe.
“The border agency’s shock admission will increase fears that the EU is unable to track potential terrorists like those who committed the atrocities in Paris and Brussels. It also undermines claims made by supporters of the EU, who say that Britain is safer as a member of the bloc.
“‘The Paris attacks in November 2015 clearly demonstrated that irregular migratory flows could be used by terrorists to enter the EU,’ Frontex said in its report” (emphasis added).
Ok, please refrain from using all expletives coming to mind right now. Does anyone else see the abject incompetence being displayed here — scarily so?
Here we have the entire European Union now admitting what the enemy has stated it would do — infiltrate within the “refugee” flow out of the Middle East. Here on these pages, we’ve been warning about the migration of these single, military-aged Muslim males into Western nations for months and months.
How can anyone like Angela Merkel and all these other “compassionate” idiots remain in office? Through inane and misguided PC considerations, they’ve truly welcomed the Trojan Horse. The question is, what will they do now?
The other question is, will our own beloved unicorns-and-rainbows-believing president, B. Hussein Obama, put an end to any visions of Syrian refugee migration into the United States?
Further, will Obama finally come to the realization that he and his progressive socialist acolyte, are wrong on this open borders foolishness? And do not forget Obama’s new BFF to the north, the charming leftist ideologue Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, has welcomed in these refugees — and the borders with Canada are not exactly sealed shut.
Yep, Europe’s leaders have just admitted they took in the Trojan Horse when everyone was telling them it was a Trojan Horse. The European Union has basically opened itself up to being one big Islamic jihadist sanctuary. And with ISIS’ capability of printing fake passports and travel documents, how long will it be before they gain entry into America?
Ok, here’s what has to happen. The U.S. must now reexamine its open travel visa protocols with the EU. Our nation must drop all pretense of political correctness and heavily scrutinize single, military-aged Muslim males traveling into America via EU nations. We need to implement the same type of protocols that Israeli security does for anyone traveling into their nation.
This is no longer a joke, and we MUST be focused and concerned about this admission of failure by the EU – because we are all at risk. Now is not the time for groups like CAIR to pressure us into subjugation and open us up for an impending attack. Furthermore, we must begin to crack down on known jihadist sanctuaries in the United States, and that means clerics and mosques preaching sedition, hate and violent rhetoric. It’s one thing to be healthy and have a cancer invade your body. It’s a completely different thing to sit back and inject your body with a cancer — and that’s exactly what the EU just admitted it’s doing. We cannot follow suit.
The UK Telegraph continues:
“‘With no thorough check or penalties in place for those making such false declarations, there is a risk that some persons representing a security threat to the EU may be taking advantage of this situation.’
“Two of the Islamists involved in the Paris attacks had entered through the Greek island of Leros and had been registered by the Greek authorities after presenting fraudulent Syrian documents.
“The Eastern Mediterranean route, especially the Greek islands in the Aegean, accounted for the largest number of detections – nearly 885,400, the report found.
“In a damning assessment of the EU’s ability to police its borders, the report said: ‘There is no EU system capable of tracing people’s movements following an illegal border-crossing. Therefore it is not possible to establish the precise number of persons who have illegally crossed two sections of the external borders of the EU.’”
The normal outcry from the liberal progressive detractors that troll this website is fear mongering, xenophobia, and Islamophobia. Say what you wish, but my response to y’all is that you’re stupid cowards if you’re not willing to objectively see what’s happening and take action.
The EU has failed its citizens — that is reflected in Paris and Brussels. Here in America, a lazy person allowed Tashfeen Malik to enter our country, and as a result, 14 died and 21 were wounded. We need to learn a valuable lesson from the EU’s admission.
Sadly, President Obama and his ilk will not.
