While it is true that immigration is fueling the rise of populism in Europe, Hillary Clinton doesn’t fear the costs of immigration like the rise in crime in Sweden. Instead, she fears that it is making Europeans more authoritarian, which is leading to the collapse of the Left:
“Europe’s leaders need to send a much stronger message that they will no longer offer “refuge and support” to migrants if they want to curb the right-wing populism spreading across the Continent, Hillary Clinton warned in an interview published Thursday.
Mrs. Clinton said that while the decision of some nations to welcome migrants was admirable, it had opened the door to political turmoil, the rise of the right and Britain’s decision to withdraw from the European Union.
“I think Europe needs to get a handle on migration because that is what lit the flame,” Mrs. Clinton said in the interview with The Guardian, which was conducted before the United States midterm elections this month. …”
Hillary was simply repeating the conventional wisdom in Europe.
It is worth noting how later in the article the comment is being used to justify marginalizing the Clintons in the Democratic Party. There are no brakes on this crazy train. The Democrats are now incapable of doing things to move to the Center like condemning Antifa. The GOP’s losses in the midterms would have been even more severe if it had not been able to play the Antifa and caravan cards.
