Europe is reeling from a Muslim invasion and some countries are starting to take action. Today it’s Hungary. They’ve called out the army and they’ve actually got a border fence.
A real one. What a concept to defend a border.
Hungary’s parliament authorized the government on Monday to deploy the army to help handle a wave of migrants, granting the military the right to use non-lethal force.
It passed a law saying the army could use rubber bullets, pyrotechnical devices, tear gas grenades or net guns, according to the text posted on parliament’s website.
Hungary, a landlocked nation of 10 million, lies in the path of the largest migration wave Europe has seen since World War II and has registered more than 220,000 asylum-seekers this year.
Why use the army? Why not the police?
Prime Minister Viktor Orban told parliament police were unable to secure all Hungary’s frontiers – which include outer borders of the EU’s passport-free Schengen zone – without help from the army.
The Obama administration should take a cue from the Hungarians. Mobilize the National Guard and put them on the southern border. Oh yeah, and build a fence.
This is happening in Europe for the same reason the Mexican invasion is happening in the US. Prime Minister Orban nailed it.
“Europe is rich but weak. That is the most dangerous combination possible,” Orban said.
“The result … is catastrophic. Because Europe cannot defend its external borders, internal borders are shut again.
Rich but weak. That’s the US under Barack Obama. We’ve lost our identity.
Oh, and the McCain ad is from 2010. The police and the military still aren’t protecting the border and this is what passes for a “border fence.”
And Senator McCain, you’re still NOT “one of us.”
