[T]his time it is a war of the European political, intellectual, and the media elites, against the majority of the citizenry, and the future of Europe, and the preservation of European culture, of European civilization.
— Václav Klaus
This is the first in a series of posts that represent the first tiny wavelets of what may turn into a massive tsunami of change sweeping over Europe.
Over the past few months we’ve posted a number of excellent videos and articles showcasing statements made by current political leaders in the former East Bloc countries of Central Europe: Czech President Miloš Zeman, Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán, and Slovakian Prime Minister Robert Fico.
To that list must now be added Václav Klaus, the former President of the Czech Republic.
The former president’s words in the following video and article go farther than anything said by the other three — perhaps because Mr. Klaus is no longer a sitting head of state, and does not have to worry about having a military coup engineered against him in reaction to his statements.
These quotes, as far as I know, represent the first time that a serving or former head of state in a European country has told his audience that mass immigration into Europe is being arranged by the political elites to dilute and weaken the nation-states of Europe, and to make their populations more docile and manageable.
Mr. Klaus was speaking in German at this appearance. Many thanks to Nash Montana for the translation, and to Vlad Tepes for the subtitling:
Below are excerpts from a report in the Prague Daily Monitor on similar sentiments voiced recently by Mr. Klaus:
Former President Václav Klaus Says Immigration Crisis is Calculated Means to United Europe
Prague, Jan 3 (CTK) — The pro-Brussels elites want to use the migrant crisis to unify Europe and to reduce the influence of EU members, which is the same evil as that wanted by dictators such as Joseph Stalin and Adolf Hitler, former Czech president Václav Klaus told the commercial television station Prima yesterday.
Euro-sceptic Klaus is a fierce opponent of the growing powers of the EU to the detriment of individual countries.
“Migration is a method with which to dilute the current European countries, to create a sort of docile mass that will become the future new European,” Klaus said.
“These is what dictators in the past always wanted, the Hitlers and Stalins,” Klaus said.
“The collectivity of European elites is doing the same evil as that done by the individuals in the past,” he added.
The efforts to unify Europe even more is a “cold calculus” on the part of pro-Brussels politicians, Klaus said.
The real migrant wave only awaits Europe. It should be stopped at the European border, he added.
The influx of migrants into Europe is due to the European social system, paternalism and a “disastrous multicultural ideology,” Klaus said.
However, historical experience has proven that migrants from the countries outside Europe do not feel the need to adapt themselves and that European cultural identity is jeopardised, he added.
