Europe is crying from migrants. Who provokes racism in the EU countries?
It is known that the places of compact residence of diasporas of immigrants from Asian and African countries turn into peculiar ghettos, and if there are too many migrants, the face of cities changes beyond recognition. Marseille has never been a mono-national city, but now you will not understand at first sight whether it is France or West Africa. Only one small Belgium in the last ten years has received at least a million migrants from Africa and Asia. You can imagine how they changed the life and lifestyle of cozy Belgian towns. For example, Molenbeek, where a huge number of people from African and Asian countries now live, is considered the most disadvantaged and dangerous area of Brussels. Native Belgians are doing everything possible to move away from the area. Only in one Molenbeck live at least 150 thousand migrants - and this is according to official data, and there can be much more illegal immigrants.
Quarters inhabited by legal and illegal migrants turn into epicenters of street crime, drug trafficking and, even more terrible, into bases for extremist groups. It is among the migrants that international terrorist organizations recruit the perpetrators of their bloody terrorist attacks, which have become frequent in European cities. For example, in the aforementioned Molenbeek in Brussels, there are open offices of various foundations and organizations funded by Saudi Arabia and Qatar. By the way, from 2 to 4 thousands of Belgians of Arab and African descent fought in Syria and Iraq in the ranks of terrorist groups. Many of them later returned to their “new home” - to the Molenbek district. Some neighborhoods inhabited by migrants are in fact not controlled by the police, which fears to go there not only and not so much because of the heightened risk of resistance of the perpetrators, but because of possible problems with human rights defenders.
Naturally, such a state of affairs entails far from the most positive consequences for the political life of Europe. In European countries, there is a revival of nationalistic and even racist attitudes at the household level, and politicians are increasingly talking about the need to restrict migration and argue that a large number of migrants can lead European civilization to collapse. At the same time, the emphasis is often placed on the incompatibility of the cultural values of Europeans and visitors. For example, in Hungary, the country's leadership says openly that the arrival of a large number of migrants threatens the traditional way of life of the Hungarian population, Christian values. Politicians of the Czech Republic, Slovakia and Poland talk about the same words.
Now it is in Eastern Europe that the authorities are the hardest-minded toward migrants. In Hungary, Poland, the Czech Republic and Slovakia, the opinions of officials and the people on the issue of migration generally converge. This is explained not only by the fact that Eastern European countries have always had a tendency to nationalism and have sought to mono-ethnic composition of the population, but also numerous economic and social problems. The leaders of these countries remind the European Union that first they would like to solve their own problems, and not to place a huge number of refugees and migrants on their territory. In the European Union, Eastern European countries have long become “dissidents” on the migration issue, and this situation will continue until Brussels “changes the record” regarding refugee accommodation and migration policies in general.
However, now the countries of Eastern Europe began to catch up and Western European states. One of the first desire to put an end to illegal migration was Italy. This country is the first target of African migrants swimming in the shabby little ships of the Mediterranean Sea. Getting to the Tunisian or Libyan coast of the Mediterranean, people from Congo and Mali, Chad and Eritrea, Somalia and Sudan, at their own risk and risk, sail by boat and boat to the Italian coast. Now the Coast Guard has begun to wrap such vessels back. So what to do?
Although the leadership of the European Union persistently promotes the ideology of tolerance, ordinary Europeans are no less explicit in making it clear that they do not share it and are not going to share it. This applies even to law enforcement officers, who are ideologically treated very closely. But the police are working “on the ground”, they do not live in the most prestigious neighborhoods, and they themselves perfectly see the consequences of the growth of uncontrolled and illegal migration. Therefore, when a sociological survey of the attitudes of police personnel was conducted in the Netherlands, sociologists were extremely surprised by its results - it turns out that more than 60% of police officers do not see anything wrong in stopping people to check documents on the basis of their race or nationality. Interestingly, exactly the same results were obtained by the polls of ordinary Dutch - 64% of respondents answered that they consider the detention of migrants as a preventive method of fighting crime to be acceptable.
Of course, an ethnic Dutchman can join a terrorist organization, but there is much more chance that a native of an Asian or African country will do that. The Dutch are not alone - in the UK more than half of the British respondents also consider it necessary that greater attention from the police be shown to people of Arab and African appearance. If this is racism, then only those groups of the population whose representatives were too active in street robberies and fights, rape and drug trafficking, terrorism and riots are guilty of it.
However, the problem of migration in Europe has already gone too far. If new migrants can not be allowed into European countries, including by force, if illegal migrants can be identified and deported, even if significant police efforts are needed for this, then how about those migrants who already acquired citizenship gave birth to children in European countries , which, it turns out, the new indigenous people? In fact, not only recently arrived migrants, but also children and even grandchildren of migrants are now a big problem for the sociocultural unity of European society.
In France, sociologists have long paid attention to the problem of the second generation of migrants. If migrants - parents who came to France at one time, tried to get a job, integrate into a new society, then their children were ultimately useless to anyone, socially deprived, and this led them either to the criminal path or to extremist organizations. For example, the brothers Said and Sheriff Kouachi, who committed a loud terrorist attack in the office of the editorial board of Charlie Hebdo, were born into a family of Algerian immigrants, but lost their parents early and were brought up in a shelter. All their childhood was spent in France, this country was their homeland. But the brothers Kouashi, having matured, went down an inclined path - random earnings, which do not require special qualifications, drug use, petty crime, and then recruitment to a terrorist organization.
For the descendants of migrants, their national origin becomes the important way of self-identification, which allows them to separate themselves from the indigenous population, who still does not accept them, and even put themselves above the “depraved” Europeans, to emphasize their otherness. In addition, the “return to the roots” is very useful in a practical sense - by associating with diasporas, such descendants of migrants can earn money, find support and protection in conflict situations.
Migrants are accustomed to meet with sympathy and help from the left-liberal public. Many European political activists are literally obsessed with the ideas of tolerance, acting even to the detriment of their own fellow citizens. The rights and interests of a completely stranger who came from Afghanistan or Somalia and who are not going to integrate into European society, work and study, are more important for them than the safety and comfort of the indigenous population. As a result, we become witnesses of a paradoxical attitude towards rapists, including those who violate adolescents and children - such would-be human rights activists try to justify them with the most ridiculous arguments, including exposing the victims of crimes themselves to be guilty.
Naturally, most in this situation goes to the police. Should a policeman use force or weapon against rebellious street hooligans or criminals, as attacks on all fronts immediately begin - statements by human rights activists and liberal politicians, street protests by leftists, riots and pogroms organized by the migrants themselves. This situation does not like the police. A spokesman for the National Police Alliance in France, Valerie Mourier, emphasizes that the police are tired of this misunderstanding. Not only do they take daily risks, being on the guard of order, they also become the object of attack from all sorts of human rights defenders.
At the same time, it is hardly possible to talk about the existence of racism in modern Europe in the form in which it was shared, for example, by American Kukluksklanites or South African nationalists. Europeans are suspicious of Arab and African migrants, not because they have dark or dark complexion, but because the behavior of many migrants goes against European rules of behavior, cultural values and legislation. Simply put, Europeans are afraid of migrants because of the numerous street crimes, terrorist acts, and involvement in the drug business. If a European has any means, he will do everything possible to move out of the area where many African or Middle Eastern migrants live.
Meanwhile, the migrants themselves are far from loyal to the Europeans who have adopted them. Most often, they treat them scornfully or scornfully, considering them too weak, depraved, cowardly. People who grew up in traditional societies in Africa or the Middle East, it is difficult to get used to the European patterns of behavior. For Europeans, in turn, such customs of migrants as female recruitment or circumcision of girls, domestic slavery, polygamy, the practice of marriage without the girl’s consent seem inadmissible. To conceal, the police of most European countries actually close their eyes to what is happening inside the diasporas, allowing migrants to live as they see fit. But in the migrant environment, such an approach only contributes to an even greater conviction in the weakness of the Europeans.
The same descendants of migrants who were born and raised in France and Belgium, the Netherlands and Great Britain, if they could not advance higher in the social hierarchy and remained in the lower strata of society, begin to focus on their fellow tribesmen who had recently arrived in Europe. They seem to them more brutal, active, organized. Migrants of the second and third generation very much want to once again become “their own board” among modern migrants of the first wave. Hence, the revival of interest in national traditions, and the tendency to support religious and extremist ideas. That is, in fact, we can talk about the appearance in Europe of “racism the other way around,” in which the white person becomes the victim. And this is true - it is enough to compare, for example, the number of European women who have been raped by migrants and the number of African or Asian women raped by Europeans.
It is clear that such behavior of some migrants will sooner or later give birth to real opposition from the population of Europe. Moreover, due to individual criminals, rapists, drug dealers, quite respectable people from among migrants who simply planned to live and work in European countries will suffer. Now, European elites have no choice anymore - either they will begin to restrict migration and more strictly control the migrant environment, or in the foreseeable future they will be swept away by alternative nationalist political forces. After all, the nationalists are gaining more and more political weight in European countries, which is associated with the growing support of the population.
If in Europe the political pendulum swings to the right again and radical nationalists come to power, then not the illiterate migrants from developing African and Asian countries, but those modern European politicians who supported the “open doors” policy would be the first to blame. European countries unlimited number of migrants, not thinking about the present and the future.
