When the mainstream media refer to the mass movement of peoples into Europe from North Africa and other Third World countries, they choose from a smorgasbord of words and phrases that are considered acceptable when describing such events. New arrivals may be referred to by one or more of the following terms:
|1.||Refugees: This is the most commonly used descriptive for the culture-enrichers who arrive daily at Lampedusa from North Africa. It seems fitting, because the departure of the new arrivals was prompted by civil unrest, war, and revolution.|
|2.||Migrants who engage in migration: This may be the preferred term. It makes the arrivals sound like seasonal workers who simply move from place to place following the annual round of planting and harvesting. Alternatively, the “migration” of large groups of people can be likened to that of pastoral nomads who move around without paying much attention to national borders as they seek pasturage for their flocks. The Sami (Lapps) of Finland, Sweden, and Norway are the preferred exemplar for this process. They are often cited in multicultural literature, since they are quaint, picturesque, peaceful, and have no known predatory criminal tendencies.|
|3.||Immigrants: This is similar to “migrants”, although it does bear the connotation of permanent residence, which may make “xenophobic” readers somewhat uneasy. To soothe these atavistic sentiments, discussion of these latest “immigrants” is generally accompanied by a full course of multicultural indoctrination.|
|4.||Asylum seekers: For those who wish to take advantage of the EU’s human rights laws, this is the most useful term, since arrivals who are putatively seeking asylum gain preferential treatment and are much harder to deport than economic immigrants.|
|5.||Boat people: This term has a helpful positive resonance, evoking as it does the Vietnamese boat people of thirty-five years ago. The newcomers arrive in boats, and are fleeing war and oppression; thus they become essentially the same as the Vietnamese, regardless of cultural differences — or their far greater numbers.|
|And here’s one you’ll never read in the newspapers or hear on the TV:|
|6.||Invaders: Given their numbers, their aggressive behavior, and their manifest actions as a vanguard of occupation and colonization, this term would be the most accurate descriptor of the culture-enrichers pouring in from North Africa. It cannot be used in public, however: the tenets of Multiculturalism absolutely forbid it. In fact, most Westerners are unable even to think in such terms, so effective has been their politically correct indoctrination.|

As pointed out in my previous post in this series, Italy is permitted by its agreement with Tunisia to repatriate up to sixty “migrants” a day. Let’s take a look at some recent numbers and see how all this is working out.
First, two news stories from yesterday:
(AGI) Palermo — A boat with 178 migrants from the sub-Saharan region was escorted by a GdF patrol boat into Lampedusa harbor.
The migrant group, reached offshore during the night, included nine women and two minors. This is the second landing at Lampedusa within few hours. Last evening, 77 Tunisians arrived from Sfax, after a 10-day stretch without illegal arrivals.
(AGI) Palermo — Another large vessel carrying about 300 immigrants has been rescued about 40 miles south of Lampedusa, where 178 refugees had arrived from Libya. There are about 300 people on the boat now assisted by Italian Coast Guard patrol boats. The exact number will only be known when the boat docks in the island’s harbour .
And from today:
