It’s rant time again, this time combined with the fisking of a United Nations twit who is engaged in the transparent use of Weaponized Empathy to secure funding for his pet projects. The usual language warnings apply. If you’re offended, I don’t give a shit.
As my readers may already know, I was not exactly a member in good standing of the George W. Bush fan club. But, he was what the Republican party offered us at the time, and better him than Al Gore. Bush II was too squishy, too prone to compromise with the Left. Yet he had one moment of greatness, one act that took me by surprise and made me suspect that a real Conservative might exist underneath all that Establishment chicanery.
He appointed John Bolton as Ambassador to the UN. This was a thing of beauty, and I was in awe of it. For a moment, the polished turd yielded a diamond. The skies parted, the angels sung, and I could just imagine the UN building vanishing from the sheer level of internal contradictions contained therein. Reality would have been too much for it. Couldn’t handle, couldn’t keep it together. John Bolton, of course, said the following of the UN, echoing my own sentiments perfectly:
There’s no such thing as the United Nations. If the U.N. secretary building in New York lost 10 stories, it wouldn’t make a bit of difference.
Brilliant and on point. He was probably the only figure to walk into that building who wasn’t knee-deep in sex slavery, bribery schemes and the like. But, like all good things, John Bolton’s tenure did not last. Instead we get today’s fisking target, Michael Møller, Director General of United Nations Office at Geneva. His article on the Syrian refugee issue was so full of idiocy, wishful thinking, lies and blatant stupidity that it could only be written by UN Official. These people make Used Car Salesmen feel honest.
Let’s begin, shall we? What can the Director General of United Nations Office at Geneva tell us? The title of his article is instructive: “The Negative Narrative on Refugees Is Changing – But Not Swiftly Enough.” It is a tacit admission that, to the trolls at the UN, the Narrative is to be elevated above all other concerns. And he is impatient that the propaganda is not working swiftly enough.
As the refugee influx continues unabated, it is gratifying to see that our humanity is finally showing signs of life, thanks to generous German, Serbian, Austrian, Greek, Italian and other European citizens. They follow the proud example of Lebanon, Jordan, Turkey and Egypt. Our leaders are at last heeding what their voters are telling them and starting to question the pandering to anti-immigration voices.
This is absolutely rich. First, he sets the stage by suggesting that it is inhuman to let the refugee influx abate.
[CORRECTION]Merkur pointed out that I incorrectly identified the states taking in zero refugees. Therefore, this item is withdrawn and conceded. However, it still stands Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Kuwait and other wealthy gulf states have, indeed, taken in Zero refugees. Perhaps the UN should bark up their tree, no?
If Germany followed the example of those countries, there would be a sea of humans filling up the Mediterranean right now. Instead, they are tearing up Greek ports. Apparently it’s just fine for the Muslim world to be anti-immigration. If the West does the same it is “inhuman.”
The negative narrative on refugees and migrants is beginning to change, allowing the facts to prevail: there are clear economic and social benefits to those countries receiving migrants. And most European and other developed economies need immigration to meet present and future workforce requirements. This is a positive development, but it is not enough. All countries should contribute towards solving the problem.
What clear economic and social benefits? The rape rate goes up in Oslo? The welfare system, already a disaster in Europe, and little better in America, will suffer even greater strain? Nothing improves a nation’s economy like millions of Muslim freeloaders, right? But, get this. There is suspicion that 2 out of every 100 migrants is an ISIS operative looking to spread terrorism. 100,000 migrants would thus mean you have just brought in 2,000 terrorists. This is a positive development, according to the Mr. Møller. What’s next, you ignorant pile of rhinoceros dung, concentration camps as a fucking vacation destination?
In finding the necessary international solution, we can draw on our collective institutional memory. This is not the first time we have faced a refugee exodus of this magnitude. In the 1980s, thousands of Vietnamese boat people took to the seas to reach neighbouring countries and, from there, the US, Canada and other nations. Thousands died, human traffickers made fortunes and the countries of first asylum sealed their borders.
The Vietnamese were refugees from Communism and were not loaded with boats full of Muslims looking for handouts. They were also a mixture of women, children, elderly and every other sort from all walks of life. And when they arrived, they worked themselves half to death to support themselves. The Muslim refugees are 75% young men, and they have cell phones, brand name clothes, Ray Bans, etc… Interestingly enough, The Right Scoop proves that the UN knows this fact and is singing the praises of the refugees anyway.
This is Weaponized Empathy, certainly, but it is also profoundly insulting. How stupid does the United Nations think we are?
The problem seemed intractable – until enterprising staff at the office of the UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) devised a comprehensive plan of action, approved by an international conference in 1989. Bringing together the international community, it created an orderly process that distinguished between and established procedures for asylum seekers and economic migrants. This mechanism successfully resettled thousands of refugees, all of them now productive members of the societies that welcomed them. It is a good example of how things can be done when there is the will and the means to protect and assist in a humane and dignified manner.
So, let’s appoint an expensive Blue Ribbon commission to come up with a comprehensive plan of action, and have it approved by a conference, then adopted by the international community. Right. Blue Ribbon commissions exist to do one thing, and one thing only: nothing at all. Then he makes the absurd rhetorical claim that “all of them are productive.” Really? I remember reading a story some time ago about two Muslim thieves in France who ran away from the cops and hid in an electrical transfer station, then died by being shocked to death. Protip: don’t hide in a giant capacitor. How productive were they?
Take the Syrians sitting around at Greek ports right now, productively stripping the places bare:
5. Fund these measures on a global level and assist with meeting the costs of primary receiving countries such as Lebanon, Jordan, Turkey and Greece, as well as funding more targeted development interventions in the countries of origin.
This asshat just got done explaining that the migrants were of great economic benefit, and then, in the same article, demands that we foot the bill and pay for all the migrants ourselves. Aren’t they a blessing and won’t they generate piles of positive income for their host nations? Then why would we have to pay anything at all? Furthermore, three of the four countries he lists aren’t taking in migrants at all. Just what the hell are we supposed to pay for in the first place? Why doesn’t he just come out and say it: pay Islam the Jizya. That’s what this is really about.
Because you know that as the Director General of United Nations Office at Geneva, he’ll get his cut of the inevitable bribery. Give the UN money, he says, and we’ll be responsible with it! We promise to not give it all to sex traffickers this time around. Cross our hearts and hope to… well, not that, of course. Dying is for other people. Like the victims of future terrorist activity from thousands of ISIS fighters we made you pay to import.
Here’s my proposal Mr. Møller: we’ll take in a Muslim migrant for every UN official that promises to leave America and never come back.
7. Change the negative narrative in receiving countries based on social and economic facts.
Translation: propaganda time. The social facts are these: the Islamic world is a shithole, and its economy is, despite the general malaise of late, far worse off than anything in Europe. Greece looks like a paragon of financial responsibility next to, say, Afghanistan. That’s why we call it the Third World.
At the operational level, the agencies that manage asylum and migration issues are overwhelmed and underfunded. At the policy level, apart from the loosely organised Global Forum on Migration and Development, there is no formal international structure to provide options for future flows of the victims of man-made or natural (read climate-related) disasters, both of which will define our daily lives far into the future.
Underfunded is the key word here, Mr. Møller. You’re just crying out for more money which the United Nations will promptly flush down the toilet in corrupt carbon credit schemes, or just use to buy sex slaves from Africa. But look at this, he’s framing the argument around man-made “climate change” disasters, as if that is why Syria is a clusterfuck. No, of course it doesn’t have to do with a genocidal apocalyptic death cult fighting a life-or-death battle with an insane dictator with a proclivity for chemical weapons.
Why, like the State department spokeswoman, Marie Harf, told us, they just need a jobs program and everything will turn out great!
These actions may prove that enlightened self-interest, humanity and international solidarity can produce a win-win outcome. But this will only address the current temporary spike in refugee numbers. We need to deal with the much broader, long-term migratory trend.
Any one of us may one day need refuge
Yeah, we might one day need refuge ourselves, because we imported millions of Muslims and thousands of terrorists. But then where will we go, if you destroy Europe and America? Anyway, anytime some idiot blathers on about international solidarity it can only mean that he is a Marxist. Do you think ISIS gives a fig for your solidarity? Or maybe the Taliban? I’m sure the Ayatollah is just waiting for the right time to express unity, love, peace and understanding with the world. That’s why they want nuclear weapons, right?
But he goes on to tell us about the long-term migratory trends. That’s right, it’s not enough that we are taking all of the migrants today, Mr. Møller tells us. He wants us to make provisions so that we can take in as many people as humanly possible. 1.5 million migrants to Germany is not enough.
In the absence of such a body, we need to give Sir Peter Sutherland, the UN secretary-general’s special representative for migration and development, the mandate and wherewithal to catalyse action. One way to start the process may be to decide on greater integration of the work of UNHCR and IOM, and allowing them to propose new long-term global policies. The humanitarian summit in Istanbul next year, the meeting called by the UN secretary-general in New York in September and the November meeting in Valletta between the heads of state of Europe and Africa are opportunities to move this forward.
Let me interrupt this fisking for a moment to laugh my fucking ass off at this phrase: “The humanitarian summit in Istanbul…” What next, Mr. Møller, are you going to host the Women’s Rights convention in Saudi Arabia? Or, perhaps, you would like to conduct a gay parade in a Muslim neighborhood. Oh wait, sorry about the last, I forgot, that might offend Muslims. Yeah, because Turkey has such a great record on Human rights, right?
But, admittedly they are better than the current human rights chair, Saudi Arabia. What’s next, Mr. Møller, will your ilk appoint Lucifer as the chair on the righteousness council?
Finally, we need to capitalise on the policy frameworks the world is adopting this year: the sustainable development goals (SDGs), a climate agreement and the disaster risk reduction agreement. If we successfully implement the 17 SDGs we will stand an immeasurably better chance of dealing with future migratory flows.
This idiot interrupts his tirade about migrants to tell us about Global Warming. Because sitting around talking about carbon credit taxation schemes is obviously better than doing anything important or intelligent, right? I am sure that if we just make the Earth cooler, all the Muslim terrorists will just give up and go home, right? Bankrupt welfare systems will recover all on their own. Unicorns will fly, and pigs… fuck, they’ll go to outer space.
Any one of us may one day need refuge. Empathy, generosity and sound policies today will greatly improve the chances of the same being applied to our calamities tomorrow.
Translation: I’ve deployed my Weaponized Empathy. Obey us in all things or be called mean names.
In the tradition of John Bolton, a man of few words, I have a diplomatic and reasoned reply to the Director General of United Nations Office at Geneva: eat a bucket full of cocks.
