In a recent interview with a German newspaper, Microsoft founder Bill Gates made a stunning but 100 percent accurate admission about the refugee crisis in Europe that’s sure to catch liberals by surprise:
The continent will be overwhelmed unless it takes drastic actions to stop the flow of incoming migrants, Gates said.
“On the one hand you want to demonstrate generosity and take in refugees, but the more generous you are, the more word gets around about this — which in turn motivates more people to leave Africa,” Gates told the German newspaper Welt am Sonntag, according to a translation published by Breitbart.
“Germany cannot possibly take in the huge, massive number of people who are wanting to make their way to Europe,” he added, stressing that, “Europe must make it more difficult for Africans to reach the continent via the current transit routes.”
This astonishing statement completely repudiated the oft-peddled narrative by leftists in America and Europe that Western nations are obliged to cater to refugees. They’re not, and if even Gates, a liberal philanthropist with a record of donating to Democrats, realizes this, why can’t the rest of the left?
In fact, just last year German Chancellor Angela Merkel — the de facto leader of the European Union — stated unequivocally that it was “unacceptable” for members of the union to not accept Muslim refugees.
“What I continue to think is wrong is that some say ‘we generally don’t want Muslims in our country, regardless of whether there’s a humanitarian need or not,’” she told a German news station, as reported by the U.K. Independent. “Everyone must do their part, (and) a common solution must be found.”
And that solution is called sovereignty, i.e., the notion that a nation is only responsible for its own constituents, not the rest of the world. Sadly, neither Merkel nor most other liberal Democrats — including those in the leftist media — understand this.
To make matters worse, they have resorted to spewing pure lies to bolster their argument for allowing more refugees into Europe as well as America.
“Countries that refuse refugees are usually damaging their own prospects,” Daniel Altman of Foreign Policymagazine blatantly wrote in an op-ed two years ago. “Refugees are some of the best bets for almost any economy.”
That’s true to an extent, of course. Some refugees — law-abiding, educated, hard-working individuals with a sincere desire to assimilate into a their new country — would be a boon to any economy. Unfortunately for the liberal argument, that’s simply not the truth about the vast majority of refugees flooding into Europe today. If it were, Europe would not have seen the rampant crime it has since the influx began, and it would not be seeing sympathy for terrorist attacks in its immigrant communities.
And it would not be bearing the public cost of subsidizing the refugees’ basic needs. As of 2015, an estimated 90 percent of recent refugees to America from Middle Eastern nations were collecting welfare of one type or another, according to government data analyzed by Breitbart.
The fact is that most refugees are low-skilled people who need a great deal of assistance to assimilate into Western societies — if they are even willing to.
Does this mean that neither America nor Europe should ever accept refugees again? Of course not. But it does suggest that allowing unlimited numbers of them to pour across the border is a really bad idea.
