The speed from which Europe went from welcoming refugees with arms wide open to outright opposition is unparalleled.
Cologne and the other New Years attacks were a wake-up call that they had bitten off more than they could chew. In Germany, Merkel’s approval plummeted, with 40% wanting her to resign over refugees.
Sweden, which has been the most liberal in accepting refugees, now plans to expel 80,000 of them this year.
Even the mainstream media in some European nations is waking up, as the Daily Caller reports:
A Polish magazine’s latest issue highlights “Islamic rape on Europe” with a cover photo of six dark arms grabbing a woman wearing the European Union’s flag.
The headline on the February cover of “wSieci” reads “ISLAMIC RAPE ON EUROPE,” with the sub headline: “Our report: what media and elites in Brussels hides from European Union citizens.”
The magazine — one of the largest in Poland — has a history of pushing the limits with its covers. A previous issue featured then-Prime Minister Ewa Kopacz wearing a burqa and carrying bombs.
Among the articles featured in that edition included one titled “Does Europe Want to Commit Suicide?” The continent is quickly realizing that they already have.
