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.
Texas Political Establishment Attempts to Derail Shelley Luther’s Campaign
The special election for Texas’ Senate District 30 is on pace to be one of the most heated races in the Lone Star State.
At a candidate forum on September 18, 2020, Shelley Luther, the Dallas salon owner who was jailed for opening her business in defiance of Governor Greg Abbott’s shutdown order, confronted outgoing State Senator Pat Fallon.
Fallon vacated his seat and is now backing a successor in State Representative Drew Springer.
“We don’t want somebody who’s going to be at odds with our Republican governor,” Fallon said September 18 at the Grayson County Republican Women’s Club.
I didn’t support some of the things that he has done about opening up. … So, he’s made some mistakes. He’s our Republican governor, the 80/20 rule … because you’re not going to get any bills passed unless the governor signs them.
“Let me make something clear. I am accountable to my fellow citizens in Senate District 30. Not our Governor,” Luther responded on September 19 on Facebook:
This is exactly what is wrong with Austin. Our politicians are more loyal to Abbott than us, even when they disagree with him.
I will work with Governor Abbott when he is fighting to protect the liberty of Texans, and I will oppose him when he pushes unilateral dictates that shut down our local businesses.
Fallon and Luther had a tense exchange, which was caught on video.
“You want me to go all in on this race?” Fallon questioned Luther. “I have been 5 percent in on this race. You want me to go all in on it, I’m welcome to.”
“This has become a straight-up fight between Abbott and the ‘Kumbaya’ Professional Political Class vs. the grassroots and people who remember what limited government and principles should look like,” opined conservative activist Mike Openshaw.
“Respectfully, being willing to be jailed for fighting over-reaching government shows principle; that counts for something, Patrick,” Openshaw continued.
Luther has recently received endorsements from conservative Collin County Judge Chris Hill and Young Conservatives of Texas. Springer, on the other hand, received an endorsement from the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, which asserted that Luther was going down a “far right” path.
A Republican is expected to carry the senate district, which may still require a runoff if the leading candidate does not get enough votes during the first round of the special election.
Election Day will be on September 29.
Luther is viewed as the truly conservative option and many believe she could help break the political status quo in Austin that has kept conservative legislation from ever being passed.
