Sebastian Kurz at 31 years of age is the youngest national leader in Europe. He has come to power in Austria as part of a nationalist-populist coalition.
Austria has swing politically to the right and is now aligning itself with the Czech Republic, Hungary and other Eastern European nations on the “refugee” issue.
Austria’s new Chancellor, Sebastian Kurz, called for an end to “failed” attempts to achieve a quota system for distributing asylum seekers around the European Union and urged new efforts to help refugees in their country of origin.
When he was foreign minister, Kurz, a conservative now governing in coalition with the far-right Freedom Party, was a strong critic of Chancellor Angela Merkel’s decision to open Germany’s borders to more than a million fleeing migrants in 2015.
Since becoming Chancellor this week, he has aligned himself with central European neighbors like Hungary and the Czech Republic in opposing German-backed proposals to distribute asylum seekers around EU member states.
“Forcing states to take refugees doesn’t take Europe any further. The discussion makes no sense,” he told Germany’s Bild am Sonntag newspaper. “Migrants who set off for Europe don’t want to go to Bulgaria or Hungary. They want to go to Germany, Austria or Sweden.”
Instead of doubling down on what he termed a “failed” policy, Kurz called for the EU to support, “perhaps militarily”, efforts to help migrants in their countries of origin or in neighboring states.
He’s 100 percent correct. The “refugees” are economic migrants seeking to go to the countries that will give them the most free shit. That typically means Germany or Sweden. It shows how insane these “refugee” distribution schemes are.
They should all be sent back to where they came from. There’s no reason to keep giving these leeches free shit.
