Juncker Speaks

Stupid?

One Jean-Claude Juncker, a disturbingly stupid man and also (more disturbingly) the head of the EU Commission is upset.

EU Chief Juncker says nations leaving UN Migration Pact are ’Stupid Populists’

The list of countries to have exited includes Austria, Hungary, Bulgaria, Poland, Czech Republic, United States. Juncker believes they would not have pulled out of the pact “if they had read it”, his belief that the principals of “shared responsibility” would actually lead to less illegal immigration.

Perhaps because the document makes immigration a human right, therefore none would be considered illegal. However, it would realistically be far more migrants with none being considered illegal or able to be turned away.

On Wednesday the Czech Republic officially stated they were rejecting the Global Compact for Safe, Orderly and Regular Migration. The pact is due to be formally ratified in Marrakech, Morocco next month.

The concern among a growing number of UN member states is that the document declares migration “inevitable, necessary, and desirable” and makes signatories “commit to eliminate all forms of discrimination” including the promotion of “diversity”, enacting stiff penalties for “hate crime” and opening up welfare systems to all, including migrants without documentation.

Juncker in his speech at the SZ Economic Summit claimed that “stupid populists” in Europe have a “long list of accusations” for things they hold others, “especially Brussels” to blame.

It’s amazing how easy it is to promote the wellbeing of people when it’s not your bloody money that has to pay for said wellbeing. Luckily Europe isn’t dealing with a banking crisis. Oh, wait…

Junker is 65 and so sadly for all of us, his greatest gift to the world (his death) is probably still some 20 to 30 years away. I’d rather an autistic raccoon was in charge. No, really.
