The EU’s new Pope: Merkel refers to migrant rescues as a “commandment of humanity”.
* FB in Germany censoring again…so we go around them.
How many slogans can Angela invent to try to mask her colossal mistakes?
She then proceeds with her usual theatre of ‘getting tough on migration’ by claiming that her government focuses on strengthening Libya’s coast guard with the aim of returning the migrants to Libya, of course in cooperation with UNHCR and IOM, and to register and host them in asylum centers.
The V4 Report is quite familiar with Merkel’s spin on migration (especially before elections) for the last four years.
Of course, before Salvini starting sending German/Frontex “rescue” vessels on wild goose chases, Germany was deeply involved with transferring migrants to Italy…so much so that then defense minister Ursula von der Leyen accused Salvini of sabotaging the “rescue” missions.
This does not sound like returning the migrants to Libya, nor are her words worth any value when Germany is leading the “coalition of the willing” to resettle these migrants in Europe.
Oh, and it does not help when Germany is currently “deporting” illegal migrants to Italy…and not back to Africa.
Merkel is 100% bull_ _ _ _ (excuse the language) all the time, 24-7…and its well-documented. For four years she has played this game, offering empty future promises before elections to try to calm the public. Nothing ever happens. We won’t even waste our time commenting on her newest slogans and proposals anymore; like the Czech Republic’s Andrej Babis, it’s all a show.
