If the West is going to have a future, Pat Buchanan explains, President Trump is riding the great wave of sentiment that will protect it. The progressive left is setting up a Western suicide, writes Pat at The American Conservative, but a backlash is well underway. Tired of the progressive left’s refusal to act against the crime ridden wave of Muslim immigration in Europe, the Bavarian-based partner of Angela Merkel’s governing coalition has threatened the chancellor if she doesn’t tighten up immigration. Pat explains the Germans’ fury at the crime perpetrated by the Merkel-invited guests. He writes (abridged):
“The people of Germany are turning against their leadership as migration is rocking the already tenuous Berlin coalition. Crime in Germany is way up. Big mistake made all over Europe in allowing millions of people in who have so strongly and violently changed their culture!”
Whatever European leaders may think of him, many Europeans are moving in Trump’s direction, toward more restrictions on immigration.
In Germany, a political crisis is percolating. The Bavarian-based CSU, longtime coalition partner of Chancellor Angela Merkel’s CDU, is now talking divorce if Merkel does not toughen German policy.
Merkel has never fully recovered from the nationalist backlash against the million migrants she allowed in from Syria’s civil war. A New Year’s Eve rampage in Cologne, featuring wilding attacks on German girls by Arabs and Muslims, cost her dearly.
Among the reasons Bavarians are pulling away from Berlin is that, being in the south of Germany, Bavaria is a primary point of entry.
Virtually every one of the populist parties of Europe, especially of the right, have arisen to contest or to seize power by riding the issue of mass migration from Africa and the Middle East.
Yet the progressives adamantly refuse to act.
We are truly dealing here with an ideology of Western suicide.
If Europe does not act, its future is predictable.
Trump may be on the wrong side politically and emotionally of this issue of separating migrant kids from their parents.
But on the mega-issue—the Third World invasion of the West—he is riding the great wave of the future, if the West is to have a future.
