Tut Tut Tusk

The other Donald -- Donald Tusk, president of the European Council -- said the other day:
"I want to appeal to all potential illegal economic migrants, wherever you are from. Do not come to Europe."
If one had said this a few weeks ago, one would have been branded a xenophobe, s bigot, a racist. Perhaps a member of the ULTRA-right for good measure.
I'm going to assume that Tusk, like the rest of his colleagues in the EU bloatocracy, is left of centre. In which case this is just the latest in the long line of things that the left gets wrong, that right-leaning bloggers get right, who are first excoriated for their views, but are ultimately echoed.
Such is the case here. Tut, tut Tusk.
Think how different Tusk's warning here from the "refugees welcome" of just a few months ago. They're now feeling pretty stupid, naive.
Similarly, think of the "Arab Spring" which conservative bloggers warned would be an Arab winter, blighted by Islamism. Sure enough.... And now the leftish press calls it an "Arab winter" and thinks it's come up with an insight itself.
If you want to know what's going on in the world you have to get with the blogosphere.
And read widely, left and right.
On the issue of Islam, jihad, immigration it's the right of centre that's usually spot on the money.
