Gates of Vienna News Feed 1/3/2012

Gates of Vienna News Feed 1/3/2012New Year festivities in the Netherlands became quite violent, although not as violent as in previous years. Boisterous young people started knife fights, vandalized businesses, torched cars, and even threw Molotov cocktails at the police. That last excess prompted the justice minister to admonish the revelers that their actions were “not really a party”.

In financial news, Belgium saw a record number of bankruptcies in 2011. Meanwhile, the jobless rate in Spain has hit a fifteen-year high. Finance Minister Luis de Guindos says that Spain’s financial position in 2012 could turn out to be even worse than previously predicted.

  1. The jobless rate all over Europe is incredibly high, particularly among the younger generations (18 – 30) who are supposedly financing our pensions.

    Given these facts, please explain how 300+ million Europeans can believe that it is necessary to import more workers?

  2. Jens Stoltenberg’s New Year Speech 2012

    Encourages all of his followers to become digital watchdogs in order to drive “them” out with the light of knowledge, speaking up against extremism.

    – Yeah..?

    – Whom?
    – What knowledge?
    – What extremism? Couldn’t be islamism he’s talking about, could it?

    Time to show speech responsibility by saying “No, you’re wrong!” Stoltenberg states.

    “We do it at the lunch table, at work. Now is the time to also do it on the net.”

    The import is most significantly “workers” who do not contribute. What it means, when they talk about work immigration, is that You, the native peoples need to work harder to make all of this sustainable.

  4. Why indeed? There are plenty of non-Muslims infidels that still need subduing in Norway.

    The jizya paid by Norway is more and better, and, really, isn’t that the whole point of Islam anyway? You know, to create slaves for Allah – and Arab Muslims!

    Besides, Norway is about the only country anywhere near Europe with oil reserves, and the Muslims must control oil to control the modern Western world.

    The Kurds may be fighting for oil fields, but the Norwegians already own oil fields. It’s best that Norwegian Muslims stay close to all that Norwegian oil. Really, more Muslims should be imported to Norway just to ensure that Muslims eventually control that oil-rich area.
