Worldwide concern over ‘too many immigrants’: Study
People throughout the world are becoming increasingly uncomfortable with immigration levels which are higher than any time since the Second World War, according to a new survey published Monday.
At least six out of 10 people in France and Belgium, which have recently suffered deadly jihadist attacks, believe immigration has had a “negative impact”, said the Ipsos polling institute.
Similar figures were found in Russia, Hungary and also Italy, which has had to deal with large numbers of migrants fleeing the Middle East or Africa and seeking to forge new lives in Europe.
In all, 49 percent of those surveyed in 22 countries said there were “too many immigrants” and 46 percent felt “immigration is causing their country to change in ways they don’t like,” Ipsos said in a statement.
Let me translate:
“Uh oh, the rubes are starting to notice things. We better cut this off at the pass. Which means we have to scream even louder about the Holocaust and colonialism, and if you’re in the United States, swap out colonialism for slavery and Jim Crow. That should shut the goy up and break their resistance.”
The Japanese were least likely to say there are too many immigrants in their country (only 12 percent), and the Brazilians least likely to voice discomfort at how immigration is changing their country (23 percent), according to the study.
That’s because Japan has very few immigrants, and Brazil is such a mish mash that immigration doesn’t matter. Incidentally, I heard it said that, during the Tokyo and Japan presentation during the Rio Olympics closing ceremony on Sunday, in advance of Tokyo hosting the Summer Olympics in 2020, that Brazil has the largest population of Japanese people outside of Japan. Which means Brazil has all the diversity.
