Modern Day Slavery
Despite slavery being abolished in the 19th Century, modern slavery and human trafficking are a significant problem in the West. In America, a person is trafficked every 30 seconds, and throughout the World, the average cost of a slave is a mere $90.
The problem is so prolific that the United States has enacted over 236 trafficking bills across 42 states. In the UK, the Modern Slavery Act was passed in 2015, and British police are currently working on over 300 live operations targeting this crime.
According to the U.N., modern slavery and trafficking is the second-largest criminal enterprise in the world. The International Labour Organisation claims that this generates profits of over $150 billion per year.
Modern slavery is defined as the crime of human trafficking, slavery, servitude and forced labor. The definition includes sexual or criminal exploitation.
Despite being an ocean apart, the U.S.A. and Europe have something in common: they have organizations led by and funded by the same man, George Soros. He is trying to subvert the democratic will of the people and flood our nations with immigrants.
There are two prominent forms of trafficking and slavery in Europe. Firstly, through Eastern European criminal gangs, who traffic sex workers across the continent. The other is through sub-Saharan economic migrants and refugees. Many are trafficked by extremist organizations, criminal gangs and non-governmental organizations (N.G.O.s).
Soros’ Suspicious Connections
These N.G.O.s transport thousands of migrants each week from North Africa into Europe. They are all linked to or directly funded by hedge fund billionaire, George Soros.
George Soros, through his Open Democracy Foundations, has spent over $500 million helping migrants reach Europe. He is allegedly linked to several organisations operating a fleet of ships in the Mediterranean. N.G.O.s such as the Migrant Offshore Aid Station (M.O.A.S.), which operates the vessel Topaz Responder and the Phoenix. He is also linked to other N.G.O.s operating the Bourbon Argos, the Aquarius, and the Astral ships.
These ships are working around the clock delivering migrants from North Africa to Italy. They were dubbed a “taxi service” by the E.U. border agency Frontex.
Soros is also linked to a group called WatchTheMed. They have produced a handbook for migrants which contains maps, phone numbers, and advice about getting across Europe.
In the USA, Soros has funded a smartphone app called “Notifica” (Notify) that helps illegal immigrants avoid arrest. Users of the app can set up automated alerts. It warns them if a family member or anyone else they know may have had contact with an immigration enforcement official.
In 2016, a US version of Wikileaks calling itself “DC Leaks” released 2576 files linked to Soros’ Open Society Foundations. One memo said the European refugee crisis should be accepted as a “new normal,” and that the crisis means, “new opportunities” for Soros’ foundations to influence immigration policies on a global scale.”
D.C. Leaks also reveal that Soros’ organizations sought to shut down high profile voices opposed to this. In one of the memos, they suggested targeting prominent critics of Islam, such as Pamela Geller and Robert Spencer. They also proposed to target pro-Israel conservative activists such as David Horowitz and Liz Cheney, the daughter of former Vice President Dick Cheney.
This human trafficking has nothing to do with humanitarianism; studies by the charity War Child confirm that the average cost of housing a refugee in Germany is $30,000. It would cost only $3,000 to house them in Jordan. If Soros was genuinely trying to help refugees and migrants, he could help significantly more people by assisting them in their nearest safe country. In addition, low-skilled migrants are doomed to fail in the West, because they do not possess the skills necessary to secure gainful employment. In the UK, official figures confirm a fifth of the unemployed are migrants.
It is alleged that the reason for George Soros’ affinity for flooding Europe with thousands of migrants is due to his far-left political beliefs. His idol and mentor is the philosopher Karl Popper, whose works included a book entitled “The Open Society and Its Enemies.” Popper was a former communist and had supported Marxism. It is of no surprise Soros’ foundation is called “Open Society Foundations.”
The aim is actually for the destruction of Western society as we know it and the end of the nation-state. Through mass migration and political correctness, they aim to censor our history and nullify our patriotism. It was Karl Marx who said: “A people without a heritage are easily persuaded.” That is the real aim.
Europe’s Fate Hangs in the Balance
However, Europe is beginning to fight back. The defenders of Europe are standing up. In Britain, the people voted to leave the E.U. and to end being forced to accept E.U. quotas on migrants. In Hungary, Prime Minister Viktor Orban has submitted legislation targeting individuals and organizations that help economic migrants enter the country illegally. He has also driven Soros’ foundation out of town. In Germany, the A.F.D. party are now the official opposition, to an increasingly weak Angela Merkel. In Italy, the Lega party is a part of the new coalition government.
On Sunday, the Italian government refused the latest Soros-linked N.G.O. shipment of 600 migrants into the country; the Aquarius was turned away that day. Italian deputy Prime Minister Matteo Salvini said: “The party is over” for migrants in Italy and that “victory had been achieved.” The mainstream media call them far-right for refusing the latest influx.
What is conveniently omitted is that a 2017 report by the anti-extremist think-tank Quilliam claims that I.S.I.S. is involved in trafficking migrants into Italy.
Their report said: “While some refugees may have to pay smugglers up to $560 for passage towards the Mediterranean coast, IS, capitalizing on this route, offer free passage to those willing to join IS. IS offer potential recruits up to $1,000 to join the organization.”
The new left-wing Spanish government accepted the migrants instead, highlighting a growing split across the continent. These migrants are reported to be due to receive a monthly welfare payment of 495 euros in Spain; it is no surprise why they pass through several safe countries in their quest to enter Europe. They only have to enter the sea for a short space of time, before an N.G.O. vessel picks them up.
These N.G.O.s are possibly facing criminal charges for human trafficking.
Ambrogio Cartosio, the chief prosecutor in Trapani, Sicily, has testified to Parliament that he is seeking an official investigation into the funding of N.G.O. Migrant refugee vessels.
He claims that there is evidence of collaboration between people smugglers in Libya with links to I.S.I.S. and the N.G.O. Vessels that “rescue” them. It is also claimed the smugglers make direct calls to the N.G.O. Rescue vessels to organize the transfer of the refugees.
It is also alleged that the N.G.O.s do not always inform the Italian coast guard, which is a breach of regulations and constitutes people smuggling.
Cartosio said: “We understand that NGOs made some rescues at sea without informing the Coast Guard,”
There is growing discontent amongst the European people, which could ultimately bring down the European project. Those who oppose mass migration are labeled far-right; the truth of the matter is that it is a battle between democracy and dictatorship, and between capitalism and communism. It is no surprise that Eastern European nations like Hungary and Poland are leading the resistance, they are the canaries in the coal mine. They’ve seen the horrors of Nazism and communism first-hand and are more adept at spotting the signs.
It was US President Donald Trump who said: “a nation without borders is not a nation at all.”
