Germany Calls For EU-Wide ‘Migrant Redistribution Coalition’

Germany Calls For EU-Wide ‘Migrant Redistribution Coalition’

German Foreign Minister: “We need a coalition of willing for a mandatory distribution mechanism.”

Germany has called for a European Union-wide ‘redistribution coalition’ to settle migrants who are presently entering into Europe through the Mediterranean Sea. “We need a coalition of willing for a mandatory distribution mechanism,” German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas said. Germany will be taking a “leadership role” in accepting migrants coming from the Mediterranean route, the Foreign Minister added.

Former Austrian Chancellor Sebastian Kurz was quick to reject the German proposal. “The distribution of migrants in Europe has failed,” Kurz responded on Saturday, citing the EU-track record on the matter so far. He instead urged the European countries to send the migrants that are rescued off the coast of North Africa back “to their home or transit countries” outside the EU.

Germany’s right-wing Alternative for Germany (AfD) accused the country’s Foreign Minister of encouraging illegal immigration. “By announcing the decision to take in a regular fixed quota of migrants from the Mediterranean routes,” AfD spokesman Gottfried Curio said,” Foreign Minister Maas is once again promoting the business of people smugglers, and giving a further push to illegal immigration.”

German public broadcaster Deutsche Welle reported Berlin’s latest migrant relocation plan:

Germany should promote a “coalition of the willing” among European Union countries that are prepared to accept refugees saved in the Mediterranean Sea, Foreign Minister Heiko Maas said Saturday.

“We must now move forward with those member states that are ready to receive refugees — all others remain invited to participate,” he told the RND media group.

Germany would be willing to make a substantial contribution to the alliance and accept a set share of refugees as part of a “binding” redistribution system, he added.

Maas, a Social Democrat, said that disputes between EU countries about redistributing refugees “must no longer” impede an agreement on saving migrants from drowning in the Mediterranean.

“This blockade must finally come to an end,” he said.

The German proposal for a EU-wide resettlement plan coincides with the efforts undertaken by German pro-immigration groups to ‘rescue’ migrant boats off the North African coast and bring the passengers to Italy, Malta, and other Mediterranean countries. These self-described migrant ‘rescue’ boats, many of them operated by German activists, have been using Italian ports despite a ban imposed on them by the country’s Interior Minister Matteo Salvini.

The matters came to a head last month when Italian authorities arrested Carola Rackete, the captain of the migrant ‘rescue’ ship. Salvini called the ship’s captain a “rich, white, German woman” who had committed “an act of war” against his country after she tried to ram an Italian coast guard boat which was blocking her from entering the harbor.

Germany’s latest migrant resettlement plan is expected to be rejected by most of the eastern European countries. “Berlin is again putting forward the [migrant] redistribution fairy tale of 2015,” German news magazine Tichys Einblicke commented, referring to Chancellor Angela Merkel’s failed efforts to move immigrants who had entered German over to other EU member states, especially to the eastern European countries. Those resettlement measures failed due to stiff opposition from Hungary, Poland, and the Czech Republic.

“German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas said. Germany will be taking a “leadership role…”

Hasn’t that the central problem to begin with? Fix that first and then (maybe)…. Until then, you made your bed now lie in it.

    As I recall, the last couple of times Germany decided to take a “leadership role”, it resulted in two world wars that collectively killed 60 million people.

    Perhaps a better idea is to move all the refugees in Europe to Germany. It will be easier to give those refugees justice if they are clustered together.

Alternatively, they can just send these Very Fine People to the Californias and New Yorks of Europe and leave everyone else alone…..

That’s an odd combination of words; “willing,” “mandatory,” and “binding.”

Something tells me the Germans don’t know what the word “willing” means.

I somehow am under the impression Germany can’t expect any help with the mess they created. Nobody is “willing” anymore. What’s Germany going to do, invade their unwilling neighbors? I mean, sure, of course they have done that before. A lot.

But the modern German military is a joke compared to the Third Reich’s.

    A few years ago, Germany would have simply forced the issue. But today, their own economy is a shambles. Deutsche Bank narrowly escaped a Lehman Brothers meltdown last week (temporarily) and their auto companies ARE in meltdown. Although already depending on the Russians for natgas, Trump just imposed stiffer sanctions on Iran which hurts them a ton. And as primary beneficiaries of NATO, we expect them to be paying their share of the bills and doing more of the dying.

    Things are not looking good for Project Merkel today. No matter where you look, it’s all bad.

    Voluntelling the EU to comply. Or else.

      But the UK is making a huge mistake by leaving the nascent German…. err … EU State. The timing on the EU Army proposal wasn’t accidental.

    ‘Something tells me the Germans don’t know what the word “willing” means.’

    “Willing” means you submit to the will of the elite — by any means necessary. Sounds kinda like “newspeak” for some reason.

    Germany needs to relocate their useless, obnoxious refugees to the middle of an ocean or desert and send Merkel with them.

    It’s worse that that, since it isn’t something that just accidentally happened. Germany’s migrant policy is largely responsible for the mess, and now it wants to *demand* “willing” neighbors be forced to fix Germany’s mistakes: without admitting it’s all their fault to begin with.

Interesting how the largest words on the sign the (supposedly) German Antifa demonstrators were carrying was written in English, not German. I am aware that many Europeans understand English, but it is clear to me the real target audience of these photo-ops is the MSM/DNC axis in America. Even the graphic of the fleeing family was stolen from open borders American groups.

America has bailed out Europe several times in the last century when many Europeans embraced totalitarianism, so Antifa is perhaps thinking of turning America into a communist hellhole first before giving Europe its final shove down the same hole.

    Saving Europe from itself for the 4th time (WW1, WW2, Cold War) just isn’t in the cards unless you want a fromage eating surrender monkey like John Kerry to run things.

    The Alaska Legislature had a special session last week that was taken over by Antifa supporters of the Dems up here. For July 4th, some Fem-Dem yo-yo displayed the Alaska State Flag as red with hammer and sickle in right upper field.

“redistribute” them back to their native lands.

#ProblemSolved

“Take my refugee. Please.”

Isn’t Germany’s “fix” just part of the long range plan? Leftists deliberately create problems and the solution just happens to align with their totalitarian plans. This is just the next phase. All is going according to plan. Good thing the EU has disarmed the population.

By any means necessary.

Let me translate this into Texan:

Y’all ain’t taking enough of these varmints, and they’re a right pesky nuisance here, so if you don’t open up your doors and let more of ’em in, we’ll force ’em on you.

“German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas said. Germany will be taking a “leadership role…”

What a capital idea! Especially given Germany’s proven historical strengths of industrialization and the processing of undesirable populations:

A Modest Proposal For preventing the Migrant Poor People From being a Burthen to The EU or its member states, and For making them Beneficial to the Environment:

It would be no great problem for German engineers to design and build industrial-sized sausage making machines contained in a cargo ship. The migrants can be plucked from the sea and dropped into storage compartments on board. Flooding the compartments will overcome any objections, and a large hydraulic ram will push the migrant remains into the input for the sausage grinder. The Soylent sausage fillings can be discharged directly into the sea, without even the need for casings, to recycle and feed the fishes and other aquatic life. This avoids the unsightly flotsam and jetsam of dead migrant children on the expensive Mediterranean beaches to which we have been subjected of late. The need for the railroad cattle car rolling stock the Germans used previously for a different population is obviated. If the Mediterranean begins to get too soupy, the discharge could be made into the Atlantic. Or perhaps the French would appreciate the Soylent bratwurst excess to feed the migrants currently despoiling the streets of Paris.

The German engineers can automate the entire shipboard process using standard water pumps and adapted commercial grinding equipment. Germany created this problem. Perhaps they can solve it themselves this time without needing US intervention.

They might as well change that sign to read “SUICIDE WELCOME”.

Cultural suicide.
Economic suicide.
And so forth.

Notice how US/EU Left, black bloc/antifa share the very same placard colors, symbols and icons? The “Family of Three” fleeing untold danger iconography? Signs just like that litter the US/Mexico border.

It’s like these factions all share the same core values – yet media like the BBC/NPR/Die Welt would have us believe that these very same groups share nothing in common – are just an assemblage of concerned individuals springing up in grassroots fashion.

It’s an obvious thing that needs to be highlighted.

Germany feels guilty that they kneeled in Libya, Syria, Kiev, Somalia, Niger, and other places where social justice without borders was waged forcing casualties, collateral damage, and catastrophic anthropogenic immigration reform.

I have a better idea. Send them home. They are dangerous scavengers. You might as well have emptied the prisons into the EU…Oh. Wait. You did. The prisons of Lebanon, Syria, Libya, Iraq, Sierra Leone, Somalia, Algeria and Egypt.

You broke it, you bought it.

I have a feeling Italy is going to say “Vaffanculo, cafone”.

I hope Ms. Rackete does hard time in a tough prison. She’s an enemy combatant to Italy.

March of the narcissistic useful idiots.

These self-described migrant ‘rescue’ boats, many of them operated by German activists, have been using Italian ports despite a ban imposed on them by the country’s Interior Minister Matteo Salvini.

Worst of both worlds—the Italians know they have a problem, but they’re not willing to do even the simple stuff to stop it.

Normally, ships smuggling contraband are seized, condemned, and auctioned off. Let the owners try to grouse in court. Once these “rescues” become too expensive they’ll stop. Arresting the captain doesn’t cost the money people a penny, which makes it useless.

But the Italians aren’t doing this. Therefore the problem will continue.

    The Italians would do more, but the Salvini governments hands are tied by the courts. An Italian judge undercut the Salvini government by ordering the captain, Carola Rackete released. Apparently the courts in Italy keep undercutting Salvini, just like our own lawless courts keep undercutting Trump.

And, three weeks ago the Swedish National Police declared that:

“bombings have reached a point that is unique for a country not at War.”

Swedish National Television reported that the country has seen 128 Grenade Attacks in the last few years.

“We need a coalition of willing for a mandatory distribution mechanism.”
The word the German guy is trying to come up with is “MANURE SPREDDER”

Yes we’ve caused this problem, now we’ll cause some more for you.

There is a decidedly tragi-comic irony, given Germany’s World War II culpability — and, historical lessons that we are repeatedly told by the Germans they have assiduously and soberly learned — to contemporary German leaders’ gleeful, self-congratulatory and nonplussed efforts at re-populating the European continent with goose-stepping, supremacist, totalitarian, belligerent, intolerant and Jew-hating jackboots, only this time, instead of belonging to the Wehrmacht and the Waffen-SS, the jackboots march under the banner of Islamic National Socialism.
