The awful truth about refugees, people smugglers, and the boy on the beach

Neil FlaggRebel Blogger

Heartless right-wing knuckle-dragger here to take the bullet, in the service of giving you the truth.

As reported this morning by Vanessa Altin, John Hall, Jenny Stanton and Emine Sinmaz in The Daily Mail, Abdullah Kurdi and his family were living safely in Istanbul, Turkey, where there is no war. According to reports, they were originally from Syria. It is not reported when or how they migrated from Syria to Turkey. An aunt in British Columbia claims they were denied asylum to settle in Canada earlier this year.

According to the Daily Mail report, Mr. Kurdi paid human smugglers 4,000 Euros, and placed himself, his wife Rehan, and their sons, five-year-old Galip and three-year-old Aylan, onto an inflatable dinghy with 13 other Syrian nationals, in the dark of night, with no lifejackets. They departed the holiday resort of Bodrum, Turkey, with their intended destination being the nearest European Union port - Kos, Greece, where they sought to enter without a visa.

The boat capsized. The toddlers and the wife drowned.

If you want to blame Canada, Stephen Harper, Chris Alexander, Don Cherry, Sir John A. MacDonald, Jacques Cartier, King Sobieski, Charles Martel, Charlemagne, Jesus, and/or Moses, go ahead and look foolish.

If you want to use this incident for crass political purposes during an election campaign, shame on you.

As heartbreaking as the picture of the apparently dead baby lying face down on the beach is, I am cynical enough – based on experience – to believe this whole thing may have been contrived for a purpose. It’s not like it hasn’t been done before often enough…the incubator babies in Kuwait, etc.
As heartbreaking as the stories of some of these ‘refugees’ are, we must protect ourselves first. When we’ve done that, only then should we be reaching out to help, but that doesn’t mean bringing them all back home to live with us.
But most important, we need to be inviting like-minded people, not a people whose culture and way of life is inimical to our Western values – neither voluntary nor forced integration and assimilation will work with the Islamists.
Islam is incompatible with Western culture and law, we need to ask ourselves why are these people being forced on us – cause it sure ain’t for reasons altruistic!
So who’s our worst enemy, the incompatible Islamists that want to take over our country and murder anyone who doesn’t want to join their Caliphate Club, or the traitorous swine who would sell out our country and way of life for…what?
What is the punishment for treason in Canada…

Let me understand this. A father/husband is living in relative safety and not directly in a war environment. Takes his wife and kids, in I assume total darkness in a blow up dinghy to access a port of entry in another country across open water. Things turn rough, the craft overturns and all family members drown except daddy. Obviously this is Steven Harper’s fault and his inadequate policies regarding the immigration/refugee invasion. And this story has become The Jewel of the Nile for Mainstream Media. Yet all those children being beheaded by ISIS along with the women raped, enslaved and tortured, as well as others set on fire, holds no interest for the likes of the CBC or CTV. And these so called news outlets actually think they are legitimate journalists. Of course Tom, the Bearded French citizen and Jason, the Shiny Pony jumped on this news item with tears of joy in their eyes and a song of woe in their hearts. Their single question is: How can we stop the carnage inflicted on the less fortunate by that monster Steven Harper ? That guy all he talks about is the war against ISIS. I think Tommy Mulcair and Justin Trudeau should arm in arm hop and skip along the blood red road to the middle east and thank the ISIS crowd for helping to further their campaigns against the horrid conservative fascist. I think the choice is clear, the only candidate that will protect our borders is Harper, in my life time he stands out for me as the best Prime Minister this country has had in office. If anyone trusts those other two to do the job they are going to be disappointed and unfortunately the damage will be done once voted in. I didn’t want Obama voted to office in 2008, it was my opinion that he was the wrong man and as it turns out I was correct in my position. Any man that has the stones to go up to a murdering psyhcopath like Vlad (The Impaler) Putin and say " I guess I’ll shake your hand, but get out of the Ukraine" Is the leader I want, Fearless.

So totally sick of left wing morons, if they ever form government this country is doomed. Then watch the savages in the mid east known as isis come to Canada and those of us with a backbone will have to fight them here. Using the death of a child for political gain is so pathetic and typical of the left.

Great points, Neil. It is ridiculous that the CBC scumbags are exploiting this in their campaign against Harper. Even Justin the airhead pledged to accept 25,000 more of those unemployable people. But it appears in the comments to articles with that news that the majority of the Canadians are fed up with that pandering (that excludes downtown Toronto). In another news I saw earlier today it was stated that after the drowning the Canadian government had offered the father Canadian citizenship. I sincerely hope that this is not true.

This is the true face of the falsehood of United Nations and All members of this totally corrupt war mongers Globalists left wing devil following deviants. The final straw has finally landed on the camels back! All these bellyaching low life’s in special interest groups are the direct cause of this horrific struggle goin on in the world. May God bless and help these people, He is already forsaking Canada for the degenerates in all government and at least two major religious organizations! The Ten Commandments must be obeyed.

We need MORE refugees? Is Trudeau effen crazy? Canada is bar none, the most generous refugee destination in the world. The UK only accepts about 15% of requests, but Canada accepts near 50%. I hope voters use their heads, not their emotions.

Funny how he managed to save himself…

Great article! Where were these left politicians when thousands were drowning from over a year ago trying to escape? Why didn’t they speak up before now? As cruel as it sounds, yes these people drowned, there were children involved but thee wee children in other boats too. Where were Trudeau and Mulcair then? A**holes!!
