Cut migration to stop populism, Hillary tells EU, by Patrick Wintour.
“I think Europe needs to get a handle on migration because that is what lit the flame,” Clinton said, speaking as part of a series of interviews with senior centrist political figures about the rise of populists, particularly on the right, in Europe and the Americas.
She got that right. Maybe the globalist elite are going to bow to public pressure soon:
“I admire the very generous and compassionate approaches that were taken particularly by leaders like Angela Merkel, but I think it is fair to say Europe has done its part, and must send a very clear message – ‘we are not going to be able to continue provide refuge and support’ – because if we don’t deal with the migration issue it will continue to roil the body politic.”
Poor Hillary finds a new “reason” for her loss every week. What she still fails to understand is that those “deplorable gun-and-bible clinging” people know a bullshit artist when they hear one. Now she’s triangulating to the right, admitting that maybe open borders and welfare for all isn’t a hot idea.
It’s almost as if the moderate, sensible approach to immigration policy is that of right wing extremists and the extreme approach is that of moderates. But how could that be? After all haven’t we each read a million times that prudent protection of the borders is extremist? And that moderates have hazy views on whether borders are legitimate at all, but seem to oppose any particular attempt to protect borders?
