Denmark Fights ISIS... By Cutting Their Welfare Benefits
Like most European countries, Denmark has a huge terrorism problem (see Let Them Eat Bacon: Denmark's Delicious Solution to Protecting its Culture from Islam...). So naturally, the Danes have decided it's time to push back and bring an end to it. They recently unveiled their new plan to fight ISIS: no more welfare for the terrorists. As in, they're going to stop giving ISIS unemployment benefits ASAP.
Yeah, that was a thing...
The Danish government has said it will stop paying ISIS militants welfare benefits as a part of a plan to fight terrorism.
More than 30 foreign fighters from the country are known to have continued to receive thousands of pounds worth of state unemployment benefits known as "kontanthjælp" in Syria and Iraq, with the revelations provoking outrage last month.
Employment minister Troels Lund Poulsen immediately vowed action and efforts to recover the payments, although it was unclear how the money could be reclaimed.
Suffice it to say, the dude responsible for funding unemployed terrorists is a bit embarrassed. But don't worry, he's going to try to get that money back from the jobless jihadis...
Let us know how that works out. My guess?
Mayhaps this is all too little too late. But at least Denmark is making a little bit of an effort in the right direction. After all, this isn't the first time they've had troubles with their welfare system (see To Fix Broken Welfare, Denmark Ad Asks Citizens to... Have More Sex?!). It hardly comes as a surprise. Welfare is the pits.
Appeasing terrorists, protecting terrorists, and now funding terrorists (see THOUSANDS of Entitled Refugees 'Sue' Germany for Benefits...)? Get it together, Europe. No wonder it's a cesspool of terrorism and rape across the pond...
