Just about anybody who has been following the news of the refugee situation has probably heard of the “Crisis in Calais.” As I understand it, the terminal for the French side of the Eurotunnel, that connects the UK to France, is just outside Calais. Nearby is a tent city refugee camp. Many refugees want to make it from mainland Europe through France to the UK, because the UK has the best social welfare system for refugees. Much of the news I’ve seen has been sympathetic to the refugees. Vice went all out with a video that was more tear-jerkingly sympathetic than the Sarah McLachlan ASPCA commercials.
Then I saw the video below. It is 15 minutes long. It is profane. It is the dashcam of a Hungarian truck driver trying to make it through Calais to the Eurotunnel cargo loading dock. This is what the refugee crisis in Europe looks like up close without media spin.
I am amazed that it only has 322 views (as of this posting). It it eye opening. Hundreds of refugees walking in the middle of the road, throwing rocks at trucks, trying to hop on and ride them. The driver claims the refugees slash the truck canvas. The entire time, I saw maybe a dozen French police. This situation was entirely out of hand. The closest thing I’ve ever seen to this was video from Israel when Palestinians would gather in the streets to throw rocks at passing cars (note the rock throwing trend).
I’ve written in the past about Europeans buying guns because of the refugee crisis. Watching that video, I know that sooner or later some of those truckers are going to start packing heat. I know that if my daily commute had me run a gauntlet where people tried to get into my vehicle and slash it if they couldn’t, I’d be driving with a pistol under my leg – legal or not.
Yeah, yeah, yeah, self defense laws in Europe don’t exist. Whatever. All it is going to take is for a some refugees near Calais to pull a couple of Reginald Dennys on some Eastern European truck drivers. The next time they try to do it to a truck from the Czech Republic, the Refugees will be facing down the business end of a CZ-75. Handguns will pour out of the countries where it will be easier to obtain them.
The French police, for all the success they’ve had in raiding terrorist cells following the the Paris Shootings earlier this month, are hopelessly incapable of stopping this type of uncivil activity. It’s a matter of numbers, there are just too many refugees and too few police. The French police acknowledge that an uprising in one of the refugee camps will be “pandemonium.” They’ve practically lost control of the camps already.
This is what Europe is facing first hand, and it’s bad. I fear it will only get worse. Just wait until these hop-ons turn to stabbings. The Israelis and French Jews known what I mean.
