Hillary Tells Europe to ‘Get a Handle’ on Migrant Influx to Stop Right-Wing ‘Populists’
Hillary: “If we don’t deal with the migration issue it will continue to roil the body politic”
European leaders need to halt mass-immigration to curb the growing right-wing populist movement across the continent, Hillary Clinton warned in an interview with a British newspaper.
Europe “must send a very clear message – “we are not going to be able to continue provide refuge and support” – because if we don’t deal with the migration issue it will continue to roil the body politic,” she told The Guardian.
“I think Europe needs to get a handle on migration because that is what lit the flame,” Hillary added. The “flame” she refers to is the 2016 Brexit vote that ignited an anti-establishment revolt across the Western world and eventually swept her Republican rival Donald Trump into the White House.
Brexit, which Hillary described as the “biggest act of national economic self-harm” in recent times “was largely about immigration,” she said.
The Thursday’s interview given to the British newspaper appears to be the part of Hillary’s never-ending world tour in search for scapegoats for her failed 2016 presidential bid.
The Guardian published the excerpts of the interview:
Europe must get a handle on immigration to combat a growing threat from rightwing populists, Hillary Clinton has said, calling on the continent’s leaders to send out a stronger signal showing they are “not going to be able to continue to provide refuge and support”.
In an interview with the Guardian, the former Democratic presidential candidate praised the generosity shown by the German chancellor, Angela Merkel, but suggested immigration was inflaming voters and contributed to the election of Donald Trump and Britain’s vote to leave the EU.
“I think Europe needs to get a handle on migration because that is what lit the flame,” Clinton said, speaking as part of a series of interviews with senior centrist political figures about the rise of populists, particularly on the right, in Europe and the Americas.
“I admire the very generous and compassionate approaches that were taken particularly by leaders like Angela Merkel, but I think it is fair to say Europe has done its part, and must send a very clear message – ‘we are not going to be able to continue provide refuge and support’ – because if we don’t deal with the migration issue it will continue to roil the body politic.”
Hillary’s advice comes as Europe gears up for the May 2019 EU parliamentary elections.
For the first time in the bloc’s nearly 65 year history, the right-wing anti-establishment parties across the continent are offering a united front. Last month, the Marine Le Pen-led France’s National Rally formed a pre-electoral alliance with Italy’s ruling League Party. Germany’s AfD party is also seeking an alliance with like-minded parties in Europe.
To add to the EU’s woes, the tie-up between Matteo Salvini’s nationalist League and the left-wing Five Star Movement points to a worrying trend: anti-EU parties from opposing ends of the political spectrum can join hands to wrest power away from the establishment.
The EU elite are aware of the challenge posed by the anti-establishment parties this election season. “There will certainly be very tough election campaigns for the European elections,” German Chancellor Angela Merkel admitted in August. Merkel knows that if the small anti-EU parties manage to build an electoral phalanx ahead of the 2019 vote, they might gain the numerical power to disrupt the elitist project in Brussels.
It’s not just the EU ruling class. Hillary is worried too. Apparently, she doesn’t want another European screw-up to snuff out her chances of a 2020 presidential run.

I’m sure the Euro-Trash will get right on that!
Well, the Amero-trash (hillary clinton) sure did.
What a malignant toad.
She needs a Doctor. A witch doctor.
“I think Europe needs to get a handle on migration”
Too late now.
In related news, Hillary Clinton admits that maybe handing the Sudetenland over to Hitler wasn’t such a good idea.
I don’t know what’s more insulting:
1) Hillary expecting us to believe this is her own analysis and not some focus group tested talking point, or
2) Hillary expecting us to believe this is about Europe and not an attempt to resurrect her political career.
We really dodged a bullet in 2016. I doubt our Republic could have survived her narcissism.
Faced with reality and a nudge from focus group answers the Left is trying to reframe immigration as a failure because of the Right…again. In Europe, the game is over and, as in chess, all they can hope for now is stalemate and that won’t happen. Hillary is trying to get out front with a message first. Does it ever cross their minds that THEIR beliefs and actions are faulty? Probably…but they never never ever admit mistakes….they offer utopia and it has to always look that way.
“Does it ever cross their minds that THEIR beliefs and actions are faulty?”
Often it seems their beliefs are whatever leads to power.
For instance, I don’t think they give a damn about transsexual pronound, they just want to force us to deny reality.
Like the Homeowner Association Nazis that fine you $500 because your front door is painted in Sea Blue #11 instead of Sea Blue #10. They get off on control.
“I doubt our Republic could have survived her narcissism….
A president’s narcissism isn’t a problem. It’s a president’s treason or their incompetence that is a problem. Think Carter for the latter, and Odumbo for the former and the latter.
If the EU establishment doesn’t handle this now they’ll lose their majority come this Spring’s elections.
Belmont Club has a good follow up on what this: typical Clinton triangulation and co-opting right-wing positions.
“If you are being run out of town by a mob, make it look like you are leading a parade”
If clinton looks behind her, she’ll see no one following.
Yes Hillary, it’s the RIGHT WINGERS that are causing all the problems in Europe now.
In this case, HRC is actually correct. The policy of largely unfettered immigration of third world people, mostly Muslim, into Europe was a disaster for European Progressive leadership. No matter what the goals of such an invasion were, what it caused, a nationalist backlash, was not what the Progressive leadership wanted.
And, in this little speech, what HRC is doing is to warn the Progressive Establishment in both Europe and North America that such unfettered immigration policies could destroy the Progressive movement. She lost, not because Trump is a mesmerizing political figure, but because he ran against most Progressive agenda items, especially unfettered immigration. While reducing her own campaign’s responsibility for her loss, she still accurately illustrates a policy which was a major contributor to that loss.
I think you’re giving Hillary too much credit. I don’t think she gives a damn about the Progressive Establishment, the progressive movement, America or Europe.
The only thing Hillary cares about is Hillary. Else, she wouldn’t have stumbled around blindly for 2 years trying to comprehend why she lost.
I think Hillary would start identifying (again) as a Goldwater Republican if she thought it would lead to President Hillary.
Of course Hillary is thinking only of Hillary. Now ask yourself, how do the Clintons make money? It is by selling influence and acting as go-betweens. Their client base is largely composed of second and third world politicians and Progressive politicians in the first world countries. In the last two years, the Clinton revenue stream has been greatly reduced. So, where to find the money? HRC becomes a public spokesman for the Progressive leadership. At the same time she can shift the blame from her for her loss to the specter of unfettered immigration.
The Clintons have never been part of the Progressive leadership. These positions are held, largely, by faceless people of influence who have a globalist agenda. So, a real threat to the interests of these Globalist Progressives pops up, the nationalist backlash to immigration. The main goal of the Progressive Establishment is to consolidate political power into a few hands as possible to maintain effective control, as cheaply as possible. A Europe controlled by the EU, is necessary to their plans. North America controlled by a North American Union, is likewise to their benefit. That is why world politics have been moving in that direction for the last 50 years. So, HRC becomes a shill for the Progressive leadership to sell the now necessary roll-back of immigration into Europe to the populous. And, to attempt to completely derail Brexit. This is being done to protect Progressive Establishment politicians in the affected nations. And, HRC gets to remain a viable “player” in international politics.
Nothing happens in a vacuum in progressive world politics.
Thanks for the lengthy and civil response.
If I understand you correctly, you’re saying Clinton’s statement is intended to mollify the anti-immigration movement in Europe?
No. The purpose of her remarks is to satisfy the liberal/Progressive Pro-Immigration supporters to give cover to the Progressive Establishment candidates who allowed unfettered immigration to occur. The Progressive Establishment is about to reverse the unfettered immigration scheme which it had implemented. As it is creating the opposite effect which was desired. And, this has to be sold to the rank and file supports of European liberalism. Hense the position that unfettered immigration actually benefits the “reactionary right nationalists”.
It is very likely that the Establishment, in Europe, expected the immigrants to support a consolidation of political power in Brussels thereby leading to member states of the EU being subject states to the EU, rather than independent political entities, much as the States in the US are semi-autonomous permanent subdivisions with an overarching federal government. The goal of the Progressive Establishment in Europe has always been to consolidate the European nations under a federated republic type system like the US. The EU was the first step.
I think she is saying “get a hold on your problem because it is bringing attention our problem.” Except, our problem is about bringing future democrats into the country, and we don’t want you guys messing that up for us.
A corrupt whore like Hillary clinton will jump on any bandwagon that comes her way.
Scum like her would have been a better fit for Hitler’s inner circle than as the US secretary of state.
Her goal is to see her name in print. Our goal is to see it on a gravestone we can urinate on.
Good points…. I hadn’t thought of it … but the Clintons are those “illuminati” wannabees that will never be included at the real round table. They are now just matchmakers … well paid mercenaries.. but no longer having hands on the levers of power to make themselves more than “trailer trash” to the real power brokers.
Yes, you give the fool too much credit.
Second, you diminish Trump’s charisma: clinton didn’t lose the election, Trump won it. (Remember: Trump decimated not only clinton, but the GOPe. Right, Jeb! ?)
“we are not going to be able to continue provide refuge and support”
No shit Sherlock. How long did it take you to figure that one out?
Milton Friedman said we can have either a welfare state or open borders, but not both at once.
We are supposed to believe Hillary is just figuring that out. Doubtful. It’s more likely her handlers decided this is what she needs to parrot to fool the rubes.
Although… when she was First Lady she had a similar sophomoric epiphany on the scale of “money doesn’t buy happiness” or something similar, which she presented a The New Wisdom.
Hillary clinton is as talentless as an obama, but amazingly, even more pathetic.
Maybe Hillary is finally coming to discover that “consent of the governed” is crucial for stable government? It’s one thing for countries like Russia and China who, after so many generations of finding stability only through brutal dictatorships after they kill off millions of their own people, to not be willing to fight for liberty. It’s another thing to expect Europeans, who having lived for generations in the same regions and so are far more regionalists than nationalists, to surrender their freedoms entirely.
In America, we have our Constitution and the Bill of Rights. And we have grown fond of them. Europeans have their guns too. And a much bigger underground culture.
Look south and “Speak for yourself, John Alden>”
So . . . on Planet Hillary, uncontrolled immigration allowing Europe to be flooded with hostile and unassimilable aliens isn’t the problem. The problem is that a continent flooded with hostile and unassimilable aliens will gain votes for the European right.
What a weirdo.
But a halt to open immigration by Muslims and welfare seekers is all the right wants. So what else is going on here? Perhaps a realization that Europe may truly descend into a continuum of civil war much like the collapse of Serbia, with Muslims staking out city states, enclaves and then declarations of countries, all the while slaughtering non-Muslims while Europeans are defenseless to deal with the issue forcefully by the EU and the UN. By the way, Brussels will be among the first to declare itself a sector of the new caliphate headed by Turkey.
The dynamics are different in Europe than they are here. In Europe it’s exclusively about bringing in younger people to replace an aging workforce and population. In America it’s a little bit about that, but it’s mostly driven by a need to create a dependent underclass that will reliably vote for democrats.
A dependent underclass that already has a high tolerance for government corruption.
The dependent class feels no effect. They file no tax returns or simply lie, the cheat at welfare with no consequences, there is always another place to sleep, another job to work for cash, another welfare program, another crime to commit without consequence. In Chicago or New Jersey, for example, a young black man with a record can commit a crime involving a gun and mysteriously be released from jail 6 months later. A young black middle class black woman with a CC permit or a young soldier also with all permits, were picked up passing thru the State, revealed they had permits for a firearm properly stored and were sentenced to 3 years in jail.
Who knew that Hillary’s broom had trans Atlantic range? She definitely looks like the wicked witch of the West in that photo.
Europe should also get a handle on their women walking around w/out Burqas nor Male escorts so the migrants might feel less encouraged to rape much as much as they do now.
Do the opposite of what the lefties say.
Hahaha! Italia dice, “Vaffanculo, Putana!
Viva Il Movimento Cinque Stelle!
I think she’s being more strategic here. She’s really saying that now that the Progressive project to hand Europe over (in the long term) to Islam is mostly complete European progressives need to take measures to ensure that the handover will be final and irrevocable. Yes, I really am accusing her (and most of Europe’s top leaders) of being that evil.
“Yes, I really am accusing her (and most of Europe’s top leaders) of being that evil…”
You say that as if someone here would argue with you about that. You’re right on.
Very interesting to watch the left use Conservative(right wing) policies to try to save the Democrat parties left wing politics from utter failure…hmmmm
Hilarious! These folks really amazingly stupid and even worse they think you are just as stupid as they are!
