At Summit News, Paul Joseph Watson reports that Danish history professor Uffe Østergaard believes it’s time to build a wall around Europe because mass migration has failed and, “Protecting borders is necessary, otherwise the population will rebel against the government”.
A well-established academic, Østergaard is a Jean Monnet professor of European civilization and integration at Aarhus University. He also teaches European and Danish history at Copenhagen Business School. His specialty lies in European identity. Østergaard has also studied multicultural and multiethnic states such as Austria-Hungary and the Ottoman Empire and the states that succeeded them.
Beforehand, Østergaard was a staunch advocate of multiculturalism and the mass migration policies that it entails. However, he has changed his views on mass migration lately.
In an opinion piece for the Politiken newspaper, Østergaard expressed his new change of heart.
The headline of his piece states “The time has come to build walls with wire fences in four lanes, floodlights and guard posts.” In Østergaard’s view, not erecting barriers against mass migration will effectively create a schism between Western and Eastern Europe. This division will emerge because of conflicting views on how to handle immigration.
Østergaard writes, “Protecting borders is necessary, otherwise the population will rebel against the government.” The Danish historian points to the rise of immigrant ghettoes across Europe as a failure of multiculturalism.
The professor claims that “Ghettos are a good example of parallel societies that arise. The integration has not failed for everyone, but for relatively many people.”
Instead he believes that “assimilation”, not “integration” should be the main focus.
Østergaard thinks that it is not possible to assimilate such a large mass of people into welfare states.
The Danish historian does have a point.
Welfare states like Sweden have become magnets for Third World mass migration.
Immigration is not inherently bad, but it gets distorted in the context of the welfare state. Further, with a political class obsessed with multiculturalism, there is a concerted push to bring as many immigrants as possible just to satisfy the whims of politicians who want to meet diversity quotas.
This is a major problem in the West.
To solve it, a reduction in the welfare state and immigration policies that emphasize work over citizenship are needed. Depending on the context, erecting barriers and other restrictions are also sensible approaches.
However, the status quo is unsustainable and will eventually lead to social disintegration if it continues in its current form.
For that reason, GOP voters see it as the #1 issue in the upcoming 2020 elections.
White Pill: Montana House Moves Constitutional Carry Bill Forward
Constitutional Carry is one ray of hope for the Right.
On January 20, 2021, the Montana House of Representatives passed Constitutional Carry legislation, HB102.
Weingarten provided some context to the significance of this bill’s progress:
The bill is the accumulation of a decade and a half of struggle against Democrat Governors, who have repeatedly vetoed reform legislation passed with large majorities in the legislature. Numerous sections in the bill show the Montana legislature has learned the lesson from other states as they restore the right to keep and bear arms.
Montana’s Senate is made up of 31 Republicans and 19 Democrats and Governor Greg Gianforte is a Republican, so the passage of this bill augurs well. If passed, HB102 would make Montana the 17th Constitutional Carry state.
Montana is already a very gun-friendly state, and represents a low-hanging fruit for Second Amendment activists to tap into.
Constitutional Carry has been one of the most successful movements on the Right over the past twenty years. It’s easy to complain about the corrupt status quo, but there are still plenty of ways right-wingers can score victories. Constitutional Carry is one of them.
It would behoove the Right to analyze existing trends and build off movements that are already producing results. There’s no need to embark on quixotic campaigns that end up being total fools’ errands. Find what’s already working and run with it.
