“We simply cannot allow people to pour into the United States undetected, undocumented, unchecked and circumventing the line pf people who are waiting patiently, diligently and lawfully to become immigrants in this country,” – Senator Barack Hussein Obama, (D-IL), 2005

Hillary Clinton has issued frank advice to European leaders: If you want to stop the rise of rightwing populists then get a handle on your immigration crisis.
Clinton, the 2016 Democratic presidential nominee, said during an interview with The Guardian that the one million migrants and refugees that have flooded into the European Union since 2015 have thrust immigration into the spotlight and fueled the rise of hardline leaders around the globe. And while she praised German chancellor Angela Merkel for her compassion, she cautioned that countries can’t leave the door open forever.
“I think Europe needs to get a handle on migration because that is what lit the flame,” Clinton said regarding the rise of rightwing populists like Hungary’s Viktor Orbán.
Clinton added: “I admire the very generous and compassionate approaches that were taken particularly by leaders like Angela Merkel, but I think it is fair to say Europe has done its part, and must send a very clear message – ‘we are not going to be able to continue provide refuge and support’ – because if we don’t deal with the migration issue it will continue to roil the body politic.”
Clinton was one of three politicians interviewed by the Guardian, along with former British Prime Minister Tony Blair and former Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi, about the rise of rightwing populism and what center-left politicians are struggling to combat it.
…Clinton singled out President Trump’s use of immigration as an issue to rally his base of support on the campaign trail and as one of the reasons she lost to him in the 2016 presidential race.
“The use of immigrants as a political device and as a symbol of government gone wrong, of attacks on one’s heritage, one’s identity, one’s national unity has been very much exploited by the current administration here,” she said. “There are solutions to migration that do not require clamping down on the press, on your political opponents and trying to suborn the judiciary, or seeking financial and political help from Russia to support your political parties and movements.”
The three former world leaders also argued that rightwing politics was able to rise not just because it latched on to an anti-immigration agenda, but because of its disruptive style of politics that highlights divisions. Blair said that more mainstream politicians will struggle to get heard over the simple, emotional language used by populists and that they need to find a way to cut through the soundbites that make the headlines.
And while the three global figures said they believed that populism was near its peak and people were beginning to see its faults, none could pinpoint a reason why populist leaders have been so successful over the past few years.
“The whole American system was designed so that you would eliminate the threat from a strong, authoritarian king or other leader and maybe people are just tired of it,” Clinton said. “They don’t want that much responsibility and freedom. They want to be told what to do and where to go and how to live … and only given one version of reality.”
She added: “I don’t know why at this moment that is so attractive to people, but it’s a serious threat to our freedom and our democratic institutions, and it goes very deep and very far and we’ve got to do a better job of shining a light on it and trying to combat it.”
Evidently, “rightwing populists” is Liberal-speak for “nationalists” or “patriots”.
Liberals like Hillary have got to be the most naïve people on God’s green Earth.
Either that, or they want to see nations fall to barbaric invaders.
Europe has learned a hard lesson about letting “the snake” came into your house to live with you. Liberals like Germany’s Angela Merkel have become hated within their own countries for allow the Muslim Migration which started in 2015 to run over their Sovereign Nations to the point that European women are literally afraid to go outside.
I realize that Liberals like Hillary and Merkel look down their noses at average patriotic citizens in their respective countries, but even they could not be stupid enough to believe that barbarians with strange customs and a lack of morality and personal hygiene would be welcome to invade Europe or America and radically change our countries into the ones they left behind.
And, where does she get off saying that “rightwing populists” “want to be told what to do and where to go and how to live … and only given one version of reality?”
That’s the biggest case of deflection since the movie “Deep Impact” where the spaceship knocked the meteor headed toward Earth off course.
Oh, and Hillary…reality is not subjective.
They really need to adjust your medication.
You and your fellow Far Left Democrats need to start smelling what you’re shoveling.
What average Americans and Europeans, as well, are using is called in the Bible “a spirit of discernment”.
And that makes perfect sense because…
Heaven has a gate…and a vetting system.
