Europe banked on George Soros instead of Viktor Orban, and will suffer the consequences – forever

14 6 18

In any other period of European history, Viktor Orban would have been heralded as a noble statesman by many of his peers. The reason is rather straightforward. He is attempting to do exactly what other European leaders have done for centuries before him, and that is defending the continent from foreign incursions. But these are radical new times and the old rules no longer apply.

By now, most people are familiar with the mainstream media's narrative on Europe's plight. Millions of desperate migrants from the Middle East and North Africa, suffering the untold ravages of war and poverty, are streaming towards Europe's borders in a quest for some semblance of peace and happiness. There is a lot of truth to that narrative; millions of innocent people across the Middle East have had their lives totally upended by senseless wars sparked by Western-led regime changes. They deserve not only sympathy but physical assistance. At the same time, however, Europeans are expected to sacrifice everything to assist these new arrivals regardless of the cost. And the cost is nothing less than exorbitant.

In Germany, for example, asylum seekers are entitled to as much as €354 ($400) per month, while the state picks up the tab for rent and medical insurance. All told, Germany is expected to fork out – hold onto your hat – €77.6 billion ($86.2 billion) during the period from 2017 to 2020 on "feeding, housing and training" their new guests. In light of that massive assistance, is it any wonder that over one million people crashed Germany's paper border in 2015 alone?

This leads us to an obvious question that the Western media never discusses: Would this great migration of people have occurred without the promise of generous handouts by European capitals? It seems safe to say that without some sort of security net, the majority of these people would not have risked such a hazardous journey. Moreover, there are huge budgetary considerations that cannot be ignored (yet they are), for as any economist knows, money does not grow on trees.

This is Sweden.
