We in America regard immigrants as an important topic, and for millions these people from across the border in Mexico somehow pose a threat to the very existence of this nation. Ironically, similar feelings are sweeping Western Europe which battles the influx of refugees from places like Syria or Africa or any number of Middle Eastern Muslim nations. Right wing political parties are growing in power whether in France or Italy or Sweden or the United Kingdom. The cry is being sounded they are taking away your jobs driving buses or picking fruit. In Sweden, the Sweden Democratic Party is now capturing about 17% of the vote with a campaign promise that if granted power they will end the influx of “those people.” Naturally, the main characteristic of “those people” is they come from the Middle East and are of the Muslim religion.
Former Prime Minister Fredrick Reinfeld caused an uproar when he pointed out “we late 25 million people living in the Nordic region. There are endless fields and forests.” He noted that “space” was available for millions and there was no reason to panic. Sorry, “those people” will cause white skinned folk to panic because they do not want to have “them” in their pure white lands. If there is one thing uniting white people all over the world is a fear of “those people.”
