German Chancellor Angela Merkel must be certifiably insane.
She has agreed to take in nearly 1 million refugees from Syria and other war-torn nations that have been destroyed by the cauldron of Islam. An astounding 10,000 refugees per day have been swamping Germany, and Merkel has been under increasing pressure to stem the tide.
Merkel, of the Christian Democratic Union, assumed office 10 years ago this month. She was supposed to be a moderate, but I am sure millions of Germans have been aghast and appalled at her suicidal decision to roll out the welcome mat to Islam.
Let's be frank: The vast majority of the Islamic immigrants in European nations do not want to assimilate with western European culture and society. They are fleeing hellhole conditions in their own countries that largely resulted from the dysfunctional religion to which they belong. But instead of being grateful for receiving the opportunity to live and work in a safe, secure, economically prosperous and pluralistic nation, they exhibit a sickening insolence. Some of them have the gall to want to implement sharia law in their host country. Talk about ingrates!
Alarmingly, Muslim families are often large. They multiply rapidly and extensively. Conversely, European cultures in Germany, France, England, Spain and other countries are in decline (generally the birth rate languishes between 1 and 2 per woman). Marriage is less common, and childless marriages are commonplace.
Consider this: Even if only 1 percent, .1 percent or .01 percent of the Muslim immigrants are Islamofascists who wish to commit terrorist acts against their host country, rolling out the welcome mat will prove disastrous. Mark my words, deep trouble is coming to Europe in the very near future.
Additionally, the Obama administration B.S. that all immigrants are thoroughly vetted (this applies to the United States, but certainly the Germans make the same claim), ranks with bunk such as "If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor," and the Benghazi fiasco being precipitated by an offensive anti-Islam video. This administration wouldn't know the truth if it hit 'em in the face.
Syria, Iraq and the other nations from which these refugees hail, do not have a solid data infrastructure (social security numbers, bank accounts, law enforcement records, tax files, et al) plus the physical hardware (servers, fiber optics, wireless networks) to ensure that accurate vetting can take place. Too, the governments of these godforsaken nations are often rife with corruption. Give a bureaucrat a big enough bribe, and he'll be glad to produce and provide you with an "official" government document attesting to your identity and integrity. Moreover, the difficulty and confusion arising from Arabic-to-English name spellings (remember how many ways "Gaddafi" was spelled by newspapers?) further muddies the waters.
It is no surprise that neo-Nazi sympathizers have been flexing their muscles in recent weeks in Germany, and that Merkel's popularity has declined. Germans are not stupid, and they thoroughly understand their nation's history.
The question is, why doesn't Merkel have a clue? I don't have an answer. But, with so much of the idiocy and insanity that has unfolded on the world stage in recent years, I am resigned to throwing up my hands and thinking, "Truth is stranger than fiction."
That and reciting the Serenity Prayer.
