Survival Blog has published a letter from a US visitor to Europe who ran head-on into the wave of refugees coming out of Eastern Europe, desperate to make a better life for themselves in the West (or have one made for them, courtesy of Europe's 'welfare state' mentality). Here's an excerpt.
Before we left in early September, the American news was full of the Syrians leaving. Let me tell you, our media is lying on this one. Of the hundreds of thousands already in Europe, there are (yes) Syrians, Iraqis, Afghans, Libyans, North Africans, and Kurds and more. Also our news, BBC, SkyNews etc., always seem to show kids, families, old and handicapped, etc. But the vast majority of people we encountered were men. Young men. Mostly ages 15 to 30. A few families, but near 90% were young, single men. Always in clusters, keeping among themselves. Yet at the borders that were closed, they were all but quiet. Rock and bottles thrown, yelling “Allah Akbar!” Clashing with police and being tear-gassed. Both television reports and newspapers quote them as only wanting a better life, not wanting to be a burden or unlawful. Willing to go anywhere. After a week some news reports stated that the immigrants who made it to Finland were bored! No bars, no cars, cold, and nothing to do–so they left! Early on, entitlement was already rearing its head!
There's much more at the link. I highly recommend clicking over there to read it all. It's an almost perfect reflection of what we've got coming over our southern border right now, with the sole exception that (so far, at any rate) we don't have a majority of Muslim illegal aliens. Whether or not that will change is anyone's guess.
