From FrontPageMag.com — “An all-star panel discusses Europe’s murky future at the Freedom Center’s Restoration Weekend.” Below is just the opening of the transcript followed by the full video:
Erick Stakelbeck: We have an incredible panel with a very timely issue obviously. Muslim refugees or migrants literally swarming into Europe, western Europe, in waves and potentially changing the face in many ways of western civilization if it continues unabated the way it has been. Folks, I don’t think it’s an exaggeration to say that, so we have a great panel today. You’re getting the best of the best on this issue. A few quick words and a few numbers because at the end of the day when we talk about these issues — Islamism, the jihadists, the demographic changes — a lot of times our dear fellow Americans are busy maybe watching the Kardashians or taking a selfie as all these things are going on. So folks, I think what we need to do, and one of the things we’ll do today on this panel, is we’re going to help register with people or get the point across that what happens over there matters over here. We need to care. So I’m going to give you a few quick examples before we get to our great panelists of why we should care.
Here are some stunning numbers for you in doing research for the panel about what’s going on right now in Europe, our cousins across the pond. What happens there could be a harbinger for what’s going to happen here, especially under the current administration and in terms of the left vision for this county. Number 1, the European Union believes that there will be at least 3 million refugees coming to EU countries in 2016 alone. Folks, that’s an astounding number. Three million in 2016 alone. Number 2, the British government. British government officials believe this will continue. This wave of refugees or migrants, whatever you want to call them, for the next 20 years. That’s the belief of the Brits. Another number. Our own Daniel Greenfield wrote about this yesterday, I believe. Ten thousand refugees. That’s what President Obama wants to bring to the United States in 2016. Ten thousand, I suppose, mainly Syrian refugees from a war zone where jihad and ISIS are running rampant. Brilliant idea.
