Poor, helpless, desperate refugees…?

Again, trying to avoid political posts, but events keep intervening. This from the “BasedPoland” Twitter feed, which posts this image and comments:

“Somehow, CNN and BBC always managed to find women and crying children to interview when covering the mass-immigration wave to Europe. This is how it looks like in reality. Count the women and children in the picture…”

I don’t see a single “refugee” who is not a military-aged male, in this one. Folks, do you really still doubt that this is an invasion? Whether organized or not is some respects immaterial; the effect’s the same either way. Although somebody‘s funding a lot of these people, to get to Greece in the first place!

But in any case, they’ve figured out the West’s weak spot: don’t bring weapons when you invade. We’re too nice to shoot unarmed people. Then, when you’re in, demand benefits, sapping our economies, and rape or seduce Western women (many underaged – see “grooming gangs“) so you can out-breed us.

Bloodless conquest – unless you count the blood of the raped women, or the men that get knifed by the “new Europeans.”

It’s damnably clever, really! B@$tards.


P.S. The image is real, and current; it can be found in many places on the web, including Time24News, which calls this Turkey “liberating” the border. Hmmmm…


P.P.S. Where the U.S. is concerned, see also this:

328 Chinese Nationals Caught Trying To Illegally Enter U.S. At Southern Border

“The Department of Homeland Security says that hundreds of Chinese nationals have attempted to illegally enter the United States through the southern border since the outbreak of the coronavirus in China.”

Weaponized migration, anyone…?

Oh, Albion! What have you done?

My heart breaks.

Lessons from Nature: invasive aliens

I have spent a lot of years of my life teaching outdoor and environmental education, conservation education, and sustainable agriculture education. And one thing I have learned, as a guiding principle, is that the natural world can often serve as a lens through which to view human society with greater clarity and awareness.

Let me cite one example, which seems to be impinging itself upon us, here in the West, with greater and greater urgency:

It is now a commonplace, among the “talking heads” of the Western media, political, and academic elite, that “diversity is a strength.” Some even go so far as to say that diversity is “our” strength. The notion is not completely without merit: there is a type of diversity which can be a strength.

The biologist and ecologist E.O. Wilson, for example, has demonstrated how biodiversity can greatly enhance resilience: the ability of, for example, a natural forest ecosystem to resist the impacts of a changing climate, or infestation by pests or diseases, especially as compared to a monoculture tree plantation, or a grain farm.

But – and this is a big “but”! – this is true only of a certain type of diversity, the sort which comes about naturally, over centuries or even millennia. An example in the natural world might be a healthy forest, meadow, or wetland. And example in human society might be the tremendous diversity of cultures, customs, and tradition which make up the vibrant tapestry of Europe.

Ecologists have long recognized the existence of a category of organisms to which “human ecologists” appear oblivious (or, more accurately, feel socially and politically constrained to ignore or deny): invasive aliens, which often find fertile soil in a new ecosystem, in which are there few or no natural controls to limit their spread. Invasive aliens in their original locality are perfectly fine and non-disruptive, because there are natural controls that limit their spread, and prevent them from getting out of hand.
