Last week a few members of the Austrian Identitare, an anti-mass migration youth movement, chose an adrenalin-filled way to protest a pro-migrant play at the Burgtheater in Austria. Bourne-like footage show the two agile climbers scaling the front of the centuries old stone building with ropes and ladders in broad daylight, hanging a banner at the apex, dropping leaflets, and repelling to the ground while capturing it on video.
More impressive than the feat itself is the fact these young people appear to have a better grasp on reality than the seasoned democratic, left-leaning leadership of Austria. It seems to be plain to Identitare that the massive influx of mostly Muslim immigrants is becoming a very real threat to their safety and identity as a nation. I guess Washington, DC isn’t the only place in the world that sucks common sense out of a person’s brain, but simply surrounding oneself with others who are saturated in political correctness tends to have the same outcome.
Previously, the same play was performed at the University of Vienna when members of the youth group protested by going on stage, interrupting the play, and pointing out the hypocritical ways of those in political power who continue to open the gates to immigrants regardless of the consequences to the citizens themselves.
In response to the play being disrupted, Ms. Bures, president of the Parliamentary National Assembly, invited the drama team to conduct the play at the Burgtheater, under honorary protection. Three days later a 21 year old University student was brutally gang-raped by three Afghani refugees. This time Identitare showed up to the theater, as the video shows, with a large banner with the word “Hypocrite” which was hung in order to call attention to the political leaders whose actions don’t protect Austrian’s women and children.
Austrian Identitare leader, Martin Sellner can be heard in the video addressing the leadership stating,
“You hypocrites, where are your tears and plays for the victims of terrorism and immigration.”
The youth group is apparently having some sway in the current Austrian election, as the leading right candidate may have gotten a bump from the group’s previous activism. Freedom Party of Austria candidate, Norbert Hofer, recently pulled way ahead in round one of the voting, up some 36%. He sounds somewhat like Trump with his strong border and anti-Islamic stances. Breitbart reports,
“Although Hofer has already declared he would be a President ‘for all Austrians’ and that none would have to fear from his election, it seems likely he would be one of Europe’s most robustly Eurosceptic, and anti-mass migration heads of state. Campaigning under the slogan ‘Austria First’, he has said Austria must stop taking refugees and that ‘I do not want this to become a Muslim country’.”
In addition to Austria’s youth movement, a powerful video was also put out by the German Identitare, called “Future of Europe”. The video displays numerous clean-cut 20 somethings making truthful statements and plausible demands regarding their disappearing European identity as a result of years of multiculturalism, diversity and immigration placed upon them by liberal policies.
Some of the statements mirror our own here in America as we see the European Union breaking down before our eyes as a direct result of those policies and programs that continually put the citizens’ well-being behind immigrants and refugees.
One cannot read the following quotes without identifying with them. They state:
“You do politics which sacrifice our values and traditions for a multicultural Utopia.
You love and support the foreign and hate and fight what is our own.
Identity is costly, we are becoming aware of it again.
You turn people into commodities, children into objects and declare genders and families obsolete.
You create yourselves a new people and turn us into foreigners.”
Their demands are just. Here are a few:
“We demand an end to an educational system which wants to instill us into shame and self-hatred.
We demand the end of societal mainstream in which common sense yields to political correctness.
We do not want a standing place in the parlor. We want the end of a party.”
This all sounds very familiar with the ideological battles we wage here on a daily basis. We need American youth ready to lead like these young people. They are out there, and are needed now to stand up and voice truth in a country not far behind Europe.
