During the 1960s there was a joke that a conservative was just a liberal who’d been mugged.
If the New Year’s attacks on Cologne and other cities are any indication of what’s to come, there’s going to be a lot of conservatives created in Europe very soon.
Two pro-refugee filmmakers recently took a trip to a Muslim refugee camp. As for what happens next, you can probably guess.
As the Daily Caller reports:Two Dutch, pro-immigration filmmakers published a video Saturday of themselves getting brutally robbed at a refugee camp in Calais, France, known as “The Jungle.” Journalist Maaike Engels and photographer Teun Voeten were attacked at knife point while obtaining footage for their documentary “Calais: Welcome to “The Jungle.” The video shows Voeten getting tackled down by three masked men, before one man threatens Engels with a knife.
Authorities started demolishing the campsite Monday and moved the migrants to containers next to The Jungle. The refugees have violently protested the eviction by throwing Molotov cocktails at police. Two bulldozers were also set on fire Friday morning, which postponed the eviction procedure.
Wait till you see why they were there filming:
Engels — who is making the documentary to portray refugees in a good light — said it was important to publish the video to show the full picture of The Jungle.
Then as a good liberal, he naturally blames anything besides his attackers for their actions:
“But I guess living under such deplorable conditions the less creative, intelligent and ambitious are very likely to become small criminals, because they’ve got nothing higher to aim at,” Engels said.
Getting mugged by reality didn’t change their minds, but the rest of the world isn’t so blind.
