Whoops! Remember how Germany Promised Only 300K Migrants? About That...
Angela Merkel, Germany's head honcho, who allowed a flood of migrants into her country (without her citizens' vote), has been lauded by leftists world wide. Leftists who, coincidentally, haven't had to deal with the migrants personally. See Angela Merkel: 5 Reasons Time Magazine Got it Dead Wrong… But for the people who've encountered the migrants on a personal level, things have been slightly different. When I say "slightly" I mean Germans are Arming Themselves In Record Numbers…. And this could be why. Out of the 300,000 migrant limit promised to enter Germany, the actual migrant number is closer to ONE MILLION. That seems like kind of a lot more than originally promised. But what do I know? I'm not a mathematician.
The number of migrants and refugees crossing into Europe by land and sea this year illegally has passed one million, the International Organization for Migration (IOM) says. This represents a fourfold rise on the total last year. Most crossed by sea, with more than 800,000 travelling from Turkey to Greece. Half are migrants from Syria. Eleven more migrants drowned on Tuesday, adding to the IOM toll of 3,695 dying or missing at sea.
942,400 new asylum claims in the EU Jan-Nov 2015, rising to more than 1 million when Norway and Switzerland are included
More than 1 million registrations in Germany's "EASY" system which counts new arrivals ahead of them claiming asylum. This includes a large number (approx 40%) of people from the Balkans not included in UNHCR figures
Let's use an analogy. Analogies are fun. You go to the doctor. Doctor tells you "This tumor isn't such a big deal, it's mostly benign. We only expect it to grow by thirty percent." You leave the doctor a little wary, but maybe not panicked. Thirty percent is no "big deal," according to your physician. A couple of months later you go back for your check up. Doctor says, "Okay, whoops, kind of underestimated there. Actually your tumor has grown 90 percent. Also, not benign. It's got a few cells that are kind of dangerous. We're not sure how many, but lots probably. Maybe we should've cut it out while we still had a chance... My bad."
Did I just compare Muslim/Syrian migrants to a malignant tumor?
Though to be fair, most of them probably are kind of benign, except the ones who are ISIS, or who rape virgins for the thrill of it. Watch a Muslim migrant publicly bragging about gang-raping a German girl. Oh, then there was the time when a woman on a German train, who spoke Arabic, heard "refugees" talking about maybe raping her. Also, lest we forget, Sweden, who's been allowing Muslim migrants into their country for years and years? They're now the rape capital of the West. The tumor analogy is making more sense now, isn't it?
Getting back to Germany's new problem, they have roughly 600,000 more migrants than anticipated. Oh, if that didn't make you uncomfortable, here's another fun tidbit: a lot of those migrants have up and vanished. Migrants have left their camps of their own volition and are just gone. No, not kidnapped by Donald Trump. Just gone. The racist in me suspects they've gone off to meet in seclusion to talk about their feelings. Of how much they hate non-Muslims. Or to share their favorite recipes they found on Pinterest. It's a toss up.
So, Germany... how's that tolerant, open immigration plan going for you?
