UN High Commissioner for Refugees: Politics driving EU migration debate

Posted by Ann Corcoran on October 2, 2018

Duh! No kidding!

Invasion of Europe news….

UNHCR Filippo Grandi:

“Responsibility-sharing has been replaced by responsibility-shedding.”

Clever phrase by Grandi but a whole lot of average Europeans (Americans too!) are asking why it is their responsibility to save the African continent.

 

Grandi with Soros

UNHCR Grandi glad-handing with Soros! Oh happy day!   https://refugeeresettlementwatch.wordpress.com/2017/12/04/israel-ready-to-deport-thousands-to-africa-un-furious/

 

From the Malta Independent:

UN refugee chief says Med migrant rescues ‘taken hostage’ by politics

 

The head of the U.N. refugee agency says returns home among the millions of Syrians living abroad are few, and insists that rescues on the Mediterranean Sea have been “taken hostage by politics” — and must be restored.

Aquarius 2

58 migrants who had been kept out at sea for days have now disembarked in a deal that will divide the group four ways.  France, Germany, Portugal and Spain will share them as Italy refused to let the Aquarius 2 dock.      https://www.upi.com/Top_News/World-News/2018/09/30/58-Aquarius-migrants-disembark-in-Malta/4651538326085/

Filippo Grandi also urged Myanmar’s government to do more to create the conditions for Rohingya Muslims to return home. Hundreds of thousands of Rohingya have fled to neighboring Bangladesh to escape a bloody crackdown since August last year.

The wide-ranging address by Grandi at UNHCR’s annual executive committee meeting on Monday comes as the European Union has been riven by discord over how to handle an influx of migrants in recent years — though the rate has dropped off from a record high in 2015.

The new government in Italy, which has taken a stricter line on migrants, has refused to allow in some boats that retrieved desperate people who left from Libya, dropping the dilemma of whether to take them in on fellow EU countries like France and Spain.

Grandi, who is Italian, appealed to Europe to preserve its asylum policies. He noted that Libya — the main launch point for migrants hoping to cross the Mediterranean — has strengthened its coast guard in recent months, but not its other institutions.

As a result, more would-be migrants and refugees have been getting forcibly returned to Libya, and “that means more and more people exposed to exploitation and detention — in horrific conditions.”

“Responsibility-sharing has been replaced by responsibility-shedding,” Grandi said, alluding to the EU squabbles. “Pushing people away cannot be the answer, and negotiating disembarkation boat by boat, even when successful, is not a good option.”

Panama revokes registration of Mediterranean migrant transport ship Aquarius 2

Posted by Ann Corcoran on September 24, 2018

The NGO that has been acting as an immigrant “taxi service” was shocked to learn that as of now they have no flag under which to fly.

 

Aquarius 2

Aquarius 2 with its human cargo had been flying under the Panamanian flag.

 

It has been over four years since former Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott told the Europeans, in April of 2015, that they must turn back the boats carrying Africans and Middle Easterners to Europe. They are finally getting to it.  It’s just too bad that hundreds of thousands got in during those interim years.

From Reuters:

Panama revokes registration of last migrant rescue ship in central Mediterranean

MILAN (Reuters) – The Panama Maritime Authority has revoked the registration of search and rescue ship Aquarius 2 in a move that means there will be no charity rescue ships off the Libyan coast in the near future unless the vessel can find a new flag to sail under.

Aquarius 2, the one remaining charity rescue vessel still operating in the Central Mediterranean area, is currently at sea with 58 survivors on board.

The decision by the Panama Authority (PMA) means that once the ship comes into port it will be deflagged and will not be allowed to operate again unless it can find a new flag.

Salvini grim

Salvini: it is a Mediterranean “taxi service” for migrants!

SOS Mediterranee, one of the charities that operates the Aquarius, said in a statement it was reeling from news of the revocation, which it said followed pressure from the Italian government.

“On Saturday … the Aquarius team was shocked to learn of an official communication from the Panamanian authorities stating that the Italian authorities had urged the PMA to take ‘immediate action’ against the Aquarius,” it said.

Italy’s Interior Minister Matteo Salvini said the Italian government had applied no pressure on Panama.

A public backlash against the arrival of hundreds of thousands of seaborne newcomers in the past five years helped put Italy’s anti-establishment ruling coalition into office.

Salvini has led a popular crackdown against immigration since his League party and the anti-establishment 5 Star Movement took office in June.

Salvini has previously accused SOS Mediterranee and other charities of acting like a Mediterranean “taxi service” for the migrants.

I did see another story over the weekend somewhere reporting that Spain is still picking them up in the western Mediterranean and ferrying them to Spain.

Look to Europe to fully comprehend why the US must build the wall

Posted by Ann Corcoran on September 20, 2018

Frankly, I was surprised to see a story with this headline at Fox News (the headline and the story sound like something CNN would feature).

Europe’s migration ‘fixes’ trigger disgusting humanitarian crises

It is about the difficult conditions in detention facilities featuring especially a Greek detention camp on the island of Lesbos, but the Fox reporter seems to have swallowed, hook, line and sinker, the international Left’s talking points.

Lesbos camp

Moria camp on the Greek island of Lesbos:  Build the wall before we get to this stage in America!

 

Europe’s migration crisis, where hundreds of thousands from the Middle East and Africa have swarmed toward Europe, many claiming they should get refugee status (the asylum scam!) when most in fact are economic migrants, has become the number one issue threatening the very survival of Europe, the birthplace of western civilization.

See this migrant crisis news just this morning:

EU migrant STALEMATE: Kurz admits ‘very low’ chance of solving crisis set to DESTROY EU

We, in the US, don’t want to get to this point and therefore absolutely must stop the flow of fake asylum seekers at our borders.

Already, as I mentioned in my previous post, more migrants to the US will be put in to expensive detention centers to be used ultimately as these in Europe and Africa are being used—for media instigated campaigns to let them loose!

Such as the story yesterday here at Fox News (aka CNN!):

European leaders are changing their course as their efforts to curb migration have triggered what the U.N. and other groups condemn as massive humanitarian failures. Deeply divided over how and where to control Europe’s borders, leaders met Wednesday in a summit in Austria.

One of Europe’s main solutions to migration — Greece’s overcrowded, unsanitary Moria migrant camp — has suicidal children and conditions that a psychiatrist compared to “an old-fashioned mental asylum.”

In another heavily criticized solution to immigration, imprisoned men and women have been shuttled away from one gun battle only to end up incarcerated on the front line of another, vulnerable to both trafficking and new abuse.

The jammed Moria camp on the Greek island of Lesbos and the dangerous migrant detention centers in Libya serve as a sober reminder that the current plans seem to be unworkable.

Nathan Gill

MEP Nathan Gill

Continue reading here for a litany of sob stories.

Notice there is no mention of the possibility that some of the migrants in these camps are violent and vile people to begin with!

However, there is one mention of a voice of reason:

“Until the message is made abundantly clear that illegal economic migrants will not be processed, that boats will be turned back, thousands and thousands more sad and desperate lives will be lost in vain, all for your feelings of virtue,” said Nathan Gill, a British member of the European parliament, accusing fellow legislators last week of being soft on immigration. “You’re not really helping people.”

Yup! Nothing humanitarian about this!

Remember the worldwide migration of the third world to the first world is an orchestrated campaign to erase borders and eliminate national sovereignty, the migrants are simply the poor pawns in a high stakes bid for a one world government.

Read the whole story here if you want to.

America has been sent a warning message from Europe (if we have the guts to heed it) and that is, the migration has to be stopped now and a message sent—-our borders are closed. 

If we don’t do that ASAP, then our US detention centers will fill and the Leftwing-dominated media will be eagerly writing stories about the horrible “humanitarian” conditions (they already are!).

Demands will be made to let them loose, and when that happens millions more will arrive on our borders.

Heed the lesson! Build the Wall!  Then if the ‘humanitarians’ and the UN really want to do something, they can go to work to fix El Salvador, Mexico, Somalia, Afghanistan, etc. etc.

Orban to EU: Hungary is “not a nation of migrants”

Posted by Ann Corcoran on September 12, 2018

Invasion of Europe news…..

Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban stood firm before the EU Parliament yesterday in the face of a so-called Section 7 vote, an effort to force him and Hungary to open borders to the migrant invaders arriving in Europe by the tens of thousands each year.

 

Orban at EU

Orban at the European Union: You are not going to condemn us for wanting to save our Christian nation!

 

Here is what Russia Today says, but there are many similar accounts of what happened if RT makes you squeamish.

‘You condemn us because we are not a nation of migrants,’ Orban tells EU before sanctions vote

Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban delivered a fiery speech to European lawmakers in Strasbourg, before they began deliberations on suspending the country’s key EU rights due to his government’s policies.

Orban accused the “pro-migrant majority” of having “already made up their minds” to invoke the European Union Treaty’s Article 7 against Hungary, for its treatment of migrants and minorities, and the ruling party purported abuse of the law and suppression of media freedoms.

“Hungary will not accede to this blackmailing, Hungary will protect its borders, stop illegal migration and – if needed – we will stand up to you,” said Orban, who was re-elected with an overwhelming majority in April.

Hungary is going to be condemned because the Hungarian people have decided that this country is not going to be a country of migrants.”

Calling the proceedings an “insult” to his nation, Orban called Hungary the “defender of Europe” and spoke of its “different view on Christianity in Europe, the role of nations and national culture.”

sargentini

Sargentini is from The Netherlands and a member of the GreenLeft.        https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Judith_Sargentini

“These differences cannot be a reason to brand any country and be excluded from joint decisions. We would never go as far as to silence those that do not agree with us,” said the Hungarian prime minister, as the majority of the chamber sat in silence, while his mostly Euroskeptic supporters cheered.

Article 7 is applied if an EU member state presents a “systemic threat” to the bloc’s values, which Hungary was adjudged to have done in a report by Green MEP Judith Sargentini earlier this year, and could result in Budapest losing its voting representation in various European bodies, becoming a pariah state in the union.

Vote is today!

RT continues…

It requires for two-thirds of MEPs to vote in favor of accepting the report on Wednesday, after European Commission chief Jean-Claude Juncker delivers his annual State of the Union speech.

This is considered likely, but all the other EU nations would then need to agree unanimously to punish Budapest. Such consensus has never been achieved, meaning that Article 7 has never been implemented, and is not likely this time either.

More here.

And, in the Guardian story about the speech we are told Orban said this:

“But still I have come here today because you are not going to condemn a government but a country as well as a nation. You are going to denounce Hungary that has been a member of the family of Christian nations for a thousand years.”

And, one more thing!  When is President Trump going to invite Prime Minister Viktor Orban to the White House?

Swedish election results: Nationalists gain seats on immigration restriction platform

Posted by Ann Corcoran on September 10, 2018

But they aren’t quite there yet as the two major parties are neck and neck with about 40% of the vote each.

The Sweden Democrats (you might call them the Sweden First party!) will however, have an increasing impact on the direction of the country going forward.

The BBC has this news early this morning, but the most useful bit is their graphic showing the percentage of voters each of the Nationalist parties have in many European countries.

Swedish election: Main blocs neck and neck as nationalists gain

The Swedish general election has left the two main political blocs almost tied, with the anti-immigration party making gains on its previous results.

With nearly all ballots counted, the governing centre-left coalition is marginally ahead of its centre-right Alliance rivals, with around 40% each.

The nationalist Sweden Democrats (SD) have won about 18% of the vote, up from 12.9% in the previous election.

A protracted battle to form a working coalition now looks certain.

You might want to save this for future reference!

Italy: 50 of the latest batch of migrants allowed in have vanished, Catholic Church let them go!

Posted by Ann Corcoran on September 7, 2018

Invasion of Europe news…..

It was less than two weeks ago that we told you about the stand-off between Interior Minister Salvini and the forces arrayed against him demanding he allow the latest migrant transport ship to unload its cargo.

Father Francesco Soddu

Father Francesco Soddu of Caritas: After all they weren’t in detention! They “voluntarily” departed!

He relented once a commitment was made for most of the 144 to be placed in the care of other countries.

Additionally dozens were to be taken in by the Catholic Church (we cheered that agreement where the migrants would not be a cost to the taxpayers of Italy).

Guess what?

It is those the church took in who have disappeared in to Europe!

From The Local:

Around 50 of the 144 migrants recently allowed into Italy after being stranded for days on a coastguard vessel have disappeared from reception centres, the country’s hardline Interior Minister Matteo Salvini said on Wednesday.

Salvini grim

Matteo Salvini

These migrants “were so in need of protection, a roof and a blanket that they decided to leave and disappear,” Salvini said on Facebook.

“This is the umpteenth confirmation that those who arrive in Italy are not skeletons fleeing war and famine,” he claimed.

The migrants were picked up by the Diciotti coastguard ship on the night of August 15th and were left stranded at sea for ten days as Salvini refused to allow the vessel to dock in an Italian port. The interior minister, who heads the anti-immigration League party, finally relented after Ireland, Albania and the Italian Catholic church agreed to lake most of them in.

The head of Catholic charity Caritas, which was hosting the migrants at its Rocca di Papa reception centre south of Rome, said it was a “voluntary departure”.

The group was not in detention, Father Francesco Soddu told Ansa news agency, and suggested that they may be trying to reach other countries in Europe.

Guess those 50 are no longer Italy’s problem—Germany? France? The Netherlands? Here they come!

Immigration the number one issue as Swedes vote this Sunday

Posted by Ann Corcoran on September 4, 2018

“….the myth of the Sweden model is melting away.”

(A “sad” former Prime Minister Carl Bildt)

Who is to blame for that but the present and former government officials who opened the door to uncontrolled migration from Africa and the Middle East!

All of Europe will be watching as the country, considered the most welcoming of the welcoming countries of Europe, goes to the polls this coming Sunday.

We will be watching too because I’ve long predicted that Sweden falls first to Islamic supremacism, albeit they have some strong contenders in the UK, Belgium and the Netherlands.  France under Macron is a top contender as well. And, then Spain has edged its way forward with its recent welcome of migrant transport ships.

On Sunday we will see if Sweden pulls in the reins in this race to cultural annihilation…..

 

New swedes

‘New Swedes’ gather for a political discussion

 

Here the New York Times gives us a detailed rundown (with its normal dripping bias on full display) of what the stakes are and what might happen.

LOL! Even the title of the NYT piece says that if you oppose the socialist (open borders) government then you might not be moral.

Sweden Was Long Seen as a ‘Moral Superpower.’ That May Be Changing.

 

STOCKHOLM — In a civic center in Rinkeby, a heavily immigrant district of northwest Stockholm, several hundred people gathered recently for a forum on Sweden’s coming election and the future of the country.

The conversation, about the nature of Sweden’s democracy and the importance of voting, was sophisticated and passionate. But it was frustrating for one participant, Ahmed Ali, a Somali immigrant, who thought people were dancing around the main issue.

“The stakes are really high in this election,” he said in an interview. “There are more extremists in the country, and they have more influence. They don’t have a real political agenda. They just hate immigrants. And this xenophobia is happening all over Europe.”

As an angry and divided Sweden prepares to vote on Sunday, the shape of the next Swedish government is utterly unclear, because of the rapid rise of the anti-immigration, anti-Europe Sweden Democrats, a populist nationalist party that is expected to win a fifth of the vote.

Swedish politician

A very important election for  Afro-Swedes says Kahin Ahmed who opposes the recent surge in populism

“This election is very important to us,” said Kahin Ahmed, 48, who is running for a local seat, but complains that none of the Swedish parties put immigrants or black people high enough on their party lists to get elected in proportionate numbers, even in areas like this one. “There is a racist party moving forward fast, and we have to stop them.”

Sweden, long considered “a moral superpower,” as the political scientist Lars Tragardh put it, has traditionally welcomed immigrants. But that is changing under the pressure of globalization, immigration and anxiety about national and cultural identity. As in Germany and France, parties of the extremes, of the left and especially of the right, are increasing their support at the expense of those that have traditionally dominated.

Sweden “is joining the rest of Europe,” Carl Bildt, a former prime minister from the center-right Moderate Party, said with evident sadness. “And the myth of the Sweden model is melting away.”

The melting was in evidence recently in Sergels Square in central Stockholm, where Martin Westmont, a candidate for the Stockholm regional council, made the Sweden Democrats’ case to the voters.

Swedish Democrats is the party to watch!

“We’re the new wave,” he said. The election “will be a revolution.” He predicted that the Social Democrats, the party who built the famous Swedish welfare state, would collapse, “even if not this time,” and “we will become the largest party.” Many voters were still reluctant to tell pollsters that they would vote for the Sweden Democrats, Mr. Westmont suggested.

Populism has shifted the political discourse to the right and raised the temperature, even among the traditionally phlegmatic Swedes. Political support is fragmenting, with the long-dominant Social Democrats heading for their worst showing in a century.

Italy: Salvini and Orban meet, call for creation of a pan-European anti-migrant alliance

Posted by Ann Corcoran on August 29, 2018

Italy’s Interior Minister Matteo Salvini and Hungary’s Viktor Orban met yesterday in Milan to discuss a historic alliance to save Europe from further invasion.

Keep an eye on Europe!  Is it just in time or too late?

“We are near a historic change on a continental level!”

(Matteo Salvini)

 

Salvini and Orban

Hungarian PM Orban (left) met with Italy’s Interior Minister Salvini yesterday in Milan.

 

From Deutsche Welle:

Viktor Orban and Matteo Salvini strive to forge new European anti-migrant alliance

 

Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban and Italian Interior Minister Matteo Salvini made no secret of their mutual admiration ahead of their meeting in Milan on Tuesday.

United in their anti-immigration policies and relentless bashing of the EU, the two right-wing lawmakers called for the creation of a pan-European anti-migrant alliance that would seek to prevent migration to Europe from besieged regions in Africa and the Middle East.

Salvini, who heads the far-right League party, the junior partner in Italy’s populist coalition, told reporters that Italy and Hungary would strive to forge a future union “that excludes socialists and the left, that brings back to the center the values and identity” that their parties represent.

 

Italy yellow shirts

Leftwing protesters gathered in opposition to Salvini/Orban meeting. Who are those Africans in yellow shirts?   http://lufkindailynews.com/news/international/image_a7cf4ef3-014b-5648-8a9f-15f8b8b9300c.html

 

“We are near a historic change on a continental level,” Salvini added.

Orban, meanwhile, called on the European People’s Party, the largest group in the European Parliament to which his Fidesz party belongs, to adopt a hardline stand against illegal immigration. Salvini’s League party has since 2014 allied itself in the European Parliament with the likes of Marine Le Pen’s National Rally and Freedom Party of Austria.

What Hungary does on land, Italy does by sea

Orban described Salvini as his “hero and companion” for turning away migrant rescue ships, claiming that such actions were crucial for Europe’s security.

“Hungary has proven that migrants can be stopped on land,” said Orban. “And this is where Salvini’s mission starts: “(Italy) must show that migrants can also be stopped at sea.”

Italy: Ship stalemate ends as Ireland, Albania and the Catholic Church! agree to take the illegal migrants

Posted by Ann Corcoran on August 26, 2018

“The next ship can turn around and go back where it came from because our limit has been reached!” 

(Matteo Salvini, unbowed)

 

See my previous post on the stalemate here.

And once again a photo worth a thousand words as anyone dealing with the migrants wears protective clothing/masks.  See here.

Some of the migrants were found to have Tuberculosis

 

Now this from Reuters:

Italy disembarks stranded migrants, Salvini under investigation

CATANIA, Italy (Reuters) – Italy on Sunday disembarked all 150 migrants from a rescue ship that had been docked for five days in a Sicilian port, ending the migrants’ ordeal and a bitter stand-off between Rome’s anti-establishment government and its European Union partners.

The migrants, mainly from Eritrea, had been stranded in the port of Catania since Monday because the government refused to let them off the boat until other EU states agreed to take some of them in.

This is big! We should be telling the Catholic Church in America that they need to spend their own money for the refugees they want to place in your towns and cities.

Interior Minister Matteo Salvini said Albania had offered to accept 20 of the migrants and Ireland 20-25, while the rest would be housed by Italy’s Catholic Church “at zero cost” to the Italian taxpayer.

“The church has opened its heart and opened its wallet,” Salvini, from the right-wing League party, told supporters at a rally in Pinzolo in northern Italy on Saturday evening. [LOL! will they be housed at the Vatican?—ed]

Salvini grim

Matteo Salvini

Salvini, who has led a popular crackdown against immigration since the government took office in June, also announced that he had been placed under investigation by a Sicilian prosecutor for abuse of office, kidnapping and illegal arrest.

“Being investigated for defending the rights of Italians is a disgrace,” he said.

[….]

More than 650,000 people have reached Italian shores since 2014, and even though the numbers have fallen steeply in the last year, Rome says it will not let any more rescue ships dock unless the migrants are shared out around the EU.

“The next ship can turn around and go back where it came from because our limit has been reached,” Salvini said.

Italian Interior Minister Salvini threatens to quit; Australia elects immigration hard-liner; and NY Times says Trump wrong on South Africa white farmers

Posted by Ann Corcoran on August 24, 2018

In the midst of vacation season for many people around the world, the news is anything but dull and quiet.

First an update from Italy on the latest migrant transport ship stalemate.

From The Express:

Italy sparks EU crisis: Brussels calls emergency migrant talks as leader threatens to QUIT

 

ITALIAN interior minister Matteo Salvini has sensationally threatened to resign over the latest migrant crisis engulfing bloc as the European Commission called an emergency meeting on the issue.

The leader of the right-wing Lega party is at loggerheads with Italian President Sergio Mattarella over whether 177 migrants rescued in the Mediterranean should be able to disembark from the Diciotti ship, which has been left in limbo since docking in Sicilly since Monday.

Salvini turns away another ship

Salvini trying to save his country!

Only 29 unaccompanied minors have been allowed to leave the boat so far.

He has insisted that migrants should only be able to disembark onto Italian soil if other EU allies agree to share the burden with them.

Mr Mattarella is more in favour of letting migrants onto Italian soil for humanitarian reasons and made a rare intervention to end a similar dispute last month by letting 67 migrants disembark from the Diciotti after another rescue mission.

But Mr Salvini has stepped up his opposition to the Italian President’s proposals and will not let him do the same thing again.

In a video message yesterday, he said: “Either you change the country or you change the minister.”

Alexander Winterstein: Priorities like his will be the end of Europe

[….]

European Commission spokesman Alexander Winterstein attempted to calm fears over the latest crisis that threatens to put a wedge between allies across the continent.

In a press briefing on Thursday, he told reporters: “We continue working towards a swift resolution so that people on board can be safely disembarked as soon as possible.

“The priority for everyone should be to ensure these people receive the care they need.”

And then this on South Africa…

I assume you have been following the extensive news accounts coming out of SA about the Communist government there beginning to take farm land without compensation from white farmers.

The New York Times is downplaying that news and once again it (everything in the world!) is all Trump’s fault or in some way connected to him.

white-crosses-sa

Crosses to commemorate the number of farmers murdered in South Africa

I’ve been writing about the decay and the xenophobia in South Africa for years that puts a lie to the Leftwing meme that S.A. is the “Rainbow nation” (implying it welcomes all colors).

It does not and in fact please note that the US is still bringing Somalis and other Africans (not the white refugees!) to your towns and cities as refugees from SA “xenophobia.”  (See my South Africa archive by clicking here.)

Here is the NY Times playing down the latest news…. Trump can never be correct in their eyes!

Trump Cites False Claims of Widespread Attacks on White Farmers in South Africa

CAPE TOWN, South Africa — President Trump waded into South Africa’s proposal to seize land from white farmers, saying in a post on Twitter late Wednesday that he had asked Secretary of State Mike Pompeo to “closely study” the “the large scale killing of farmers” — a claim disputed by official figures and the country’s biggest farmer’s group.

Mr. Trump’s comment came after the Fox News host Tucker Carlson presented a late-night program on South Africa, including land seizures and homicides, and described President Cyril Ramaphosa as “a racist.” [Nothing cuts the Left so much than to call a black leader a racist!—ed]

The tweet gives prominence to a false narrative [this is a news story, not an editorial!—ed] pushed by some right-wing groups in South Africa that there have been numerous seizures of white-owned land and widespread killings of white farmers. Some of those groups have brought their claims to the United States on lobbying trips.

NYT! Your bias is showing!

Just imagine if some Leftist ‘humanitarian’ NGO was bringing claims of genocide of blacks in Africa to America, would the NYT refer to their efforts as merely “lobbying trips?”  Never in a million years. 

Then this! The government is only taking “unused land.”

The government has said expropriating farms is necessary to deal with longstanding inequities and that only unused land would be subject to seizure, suggesting that land that is being actively farmed would be safe.

And whew, the NYT goes on—-the numbers of farmers killed is down to 47 this past year, while in the previous year it was 66 who were murdered working the land.  I guess to the NYT, over 100 killed in 2 years doesn’t constitute “widespread killings.”

The International Left (through house organs like the NYT) must at all costs keep the myth of the black run South Africa as the Rainbow Nation alive!

Stories of killings to drive out white landowners must be squelched!

Read it all here.
