Finally, things are apparently sort of moving in the right direction.
“Fortress Europe” is a great name.
The German anti-Islam party PEGIDA has joined forces with a coalition of fellow anti-immigrant parties across Europe following a meeting in Prague. They have agreed to take part in protests in February, while also warning of the “Islamization” of Europe.
The far-right coalition signed a joint declaration over the weekend which they say is a commitment to oppose immigration, especially amongst those practising Islam. The groups, who call themselves “Fortress Europe,” say they are opposed to “Political Islam” and Islamic governments, who they believe are an “enemy” of Europe.
Leading PEGIDA activist Tatijana Festerling was deeply critical of German Chancellor Angela Merkel’s policy of welcoming refugees, saying it was a cautionary tale for the rest of Europe.
“Merkel is growing a massive surplus of men in Germany,” Festerling said, referring to the fact that most of the 1.1 million asylum seekers arriving to Germany last year were male, Deutsche Welle reports.
The coalition of anti-immigrant groups plans to hold mass demonstrations across the EU on February 6. Marek Cernoch, the chairman of the Czech party Usvit, which hosted the meeting in the town of Roztoky, told Sputnik that the groups will also decide how to make sure that incidents such as the mass sexual assaults in Cologne on New Year’s Eve are not repeated.
“We will demand the strictest measures against migrants; we want to defend our women and children, all Europeans from them!” Cernoch told Sputnik.
The politician also added that the far-right movement was upset with the way that the situation had been handled by EU lawmakers and the media.
“What do we see? Recently, Brussels’ diplomatic head Mogherini visited Prague. And we heard that the mass violence in Cologne was not an emergency [and] ‘things like that happen all the time.’ [The] German and European media in fact belittle the tragedy of [the] actions committed by [these] visiting vandals,” Cernoch added.
While I’m 1000% behind a pan-European coalition against immigration, I am worried this will not be aggressive enough.
As we have seen with Donald Trump, the more hardcore you are the more people flock to you. Just compare Trump to Farage.
I keep hoping Pegida will go more hardcore. And they well may.
I obviously encourage everyone living in Europe to take part in these protests, even if they aren’t going as far as they need to.
They’re at least going in the right direction.
If you go, I would consider handing out fliers and/or DVDs about the Jewish role in this immigration conspiracy. We need to get the Jewish issue on the radar of these light-weight anti-Islam groups, ASAP.
