Another “quick takes” on items where there is too little to say to make a complete article, but is still important enough to comment on.
The focus this time: All for the filthy lucre.
First, a little mood music:
After the infamous molestation attacks in the city of Cologne, criticism of the perpetrators was effectively verboten. Why, because criticism of “multi-culti” so-called diversity must be squashed, even at the cost of Germany’s own civilization.
“So what is to be done? Well for starters we all need to start standing up and speaking out. For far too long, too many of us have been silent out of fear that if something was said we would be called nasty names or face social ostracism; for fear that we would be called racists! That needs to change. There comes a point when being silent is no longer an option and that point is now. Those peddling in excuses and contextualization must be called out. The moral relativism of multiculturalism must be stamped out, and Western values must once again be both celebrated and elevated.”
Of course, welcoming migrant aliens also has an economic impact…
The International Monetary Fund wants to help businesses in Europe… by getting them to pay Muslim Migrants less than the minimum wage everyone else is entitled to…
“The International Monetary Fund has highlighted the positive effect of public spending on refugees on European GDP, but has also recommended that employers pay them less than the minimum wage.”
It’s almost as if the German government has contempt for all of the non-elites, though their ultimate contempt is clearly aimed at their own disgruntled voters.
This economic attack is not just a German or European thing. The Dept. of Homeland Security wants to pay companies to hire foreign students over American ones:
“The Department of Homeland Security is readying a plan to expand a program that pays U.S. employers to hire foreign STEM students taught in America, a move that could end up punishing American college grads and even the elderly, according to an immigration think tank.
“In pushing to allow more foreign students into the so-called ‘optional practical training program,’ DHS said that it will help businesses and colleges by keeping those foreign students in the U.S. following their American-taught science, technology, engineering, and math, or STEM, curriculum.
“But the Center for Immigration Studies said it will punish American STEM students competing for those same jobs. And, they added, in adjusting how the foreign students are categorized as employees, they get out of paying payroll taxes used to help fund programs like Social Security and Medicare.”
So not only will American workers be discriminated against, Gandma and Grandpa on Social Security and Medicare will suffer as well.
And yet people wonder why Donald Trump has the level of support he does…
