Reader’s Links for December 1, 2020

Each day at just after midnight Eastern, a post like this one is created for contributors and readers of this site to upload news links and video links on the issues that concern this site. Most notably, Islam and its effects on Classical Civilization, and various forms of leftism from Soviet era communism, to postmodernism and all the flavours of galloping statism and totalitarianism such as Nazism and Fascism which are increasingly snuffing out the classical liberalism which created our near, miraculous civilization the West has been building since the time of Socrates.

This document was written around the time this site was created, for those who wish to understand what this site is about. And while our understanding of the world and events has grown since then, the basic ideas remain sound and true to the purpose.

So please post all links, thoughts and ideas that you feel will benefit the readers of this site to the comments under this post each day. And thank you all for your contributions.

This is the new Samizdat. We must use it while we can.

  1. German government supports rejected asylum seekers instead of reallocating funds to its citizens, AfD points out

    “Anyone who does not pay their radio license fees in Germany has to expect the relentless harshness of state authorities. On the other hand, foreigners who are obliged to leave the country but fail to do so have less to fear. Authorities often grant them a “Duldung,” which means that they can continue to live in the German welfare state without fear of deportation.

    As Junge Freiheit reported, the AfD parliamentary group wanted to do something about the government’s sloppiness and use an effective lever against individual states and municipalities that deal with the enforcement of this foreign policy. The party wanted to erase federal payments made so far in connection with rejected asylum seekers. But in the “adjustment meeting” of the budget committee on Friday night, after which the members of the government coalition boasted about their uncompromising approach, the AfD attempts failed completely.

    The parliamentary group sought to cut 4.4 billion euros from the budget of the Ministry of Labor and Social Affairs of Hubertus Heil (SPD).

    For its calculations, the AfD party used asylum statistics, which show that about 58 percent of all asylum applications were rejected in 2020. Since the rejected asylum seekers should actually leave the country and their further stay would no longer be justified, the AfD demanded a corresponding reduction in federal payments to the individual states.

    The potential savings in Minister Heil’s budget would have been 4.46 billion euros. The largest portions of this amount would have been 1.76 billion euros for the “cost of accommodation” and 2.09 billion euros for social assistance payments. But the AfD request was strictly rejected by the budget committee.

    Unsurprisingly, the AfD met with a lack of understanding. It is incomprehensible “why the federal government supports rejected asylum seekers in Germany instead of consistently deporting them and using the money for its own citizens,” said AfD member Ulrike Schielke-Ziesing.

    The almost four and a half billion euros that would have been saved with the AfD’s plan could, in her opinion, have been used more sensibly in other areas of labor and social affairs…”
