Taki Theodorocopulous writes in Taki Mag (abridged):
The reports coming out of Greece nowadays are always about the migrant crisis, one caused by the neocons in Washington and the “slam dunk” victory of that half-wit George W. Bush, aided and abetted by honest Tony Blair.
Now fake news of violent local reactions to the migrant invasion command foreign coverage. The crisis began five years ago and continues unabated. It has wrung every drop of generosity from a people that pride themselves on their compassion. It has turned some beautiful islands and some parts of Athens into concentration-camp-like conditions. And all this time no one from Brussels dares say a word to the Turks, or to the Americans, who are, after all, the ones responsible for a war that began in 2003 and continues to fester to this day.
The overflow of migrants and the possible breakout of the virus in the overcrowded camps have no resolution in sight. Turkey has become the official trafficker of migrants.
Never mind. Everyone seems to have turned Turkish of late. Gotcha journalism reigns supreme in the land of the depraved, where a virus that came from bats—served as a delicacy in a disgusting Chinese food market—is now used as an excuse by the media to discredit Donald Trump.
In the Bagel, virus sufferers in overflowing hospitals have spit and cursed and threatened nurses, a news item that somehow escaped the notice of The New York Times because those threatening were the wrong color.
Once this plague is over, national barriers might make a comeback, and not be seen only as an impediment to human freedom.
A borderless world may be the dream of rich subversives like the ghastly George Soros, but something good always emerges after a catastrophe: like never trusting the Chinese and outlawing the word “globalist.”
