The Ministry of the Interior under the leadership of Tatjana Bobnar, the notorious former director general of the police, has recently been convincing us through press releases that migration is something completely daily and normal.
And of course, there is no illegal migration, because they are all legal, and of course they do not affect security at all. On the contrary – Slovenians should feel comfortable in the presence of those who cross the border illegally. Excuse me, legally, except to pass the border crossing and without documents. If you do not believe it, ask the man from Bela Krajina who was kidnapped by migrants in 2020. Judging by the diction of the messages sent by MNZ, the abductee must have enjoyed his abduction.
The problem with this, which the minister and her colleagues are spreading through these messages, is that she considers Slovenians to be idiots. As if they do not understand that the problem is not migration as such, but its abuse. Slovenians have a lot of historical experience with emigration and immigration. In 1945, our ancestors fled from communism and found a new homeland also across the pond: in the USA, Canada, Australia, and Argentina. In the period after independence, we Slovenians accepted refugees from Croatia and BiH, this year from Ukraine. We proved that we have an open heart and that we are not afraid of refugees. Refugees, of course. Those who are looking for a safe haven from the storm of war.
And finally, it is worth remembering that the refugees from Ukraine crossed the border at the border crossing. And not outside of them, like many anonymous jihadists, who have many smuggling godfathers and NGOs behind them. And it is no secret that after Golob’s government came to power, the pressure on our southern border increased, as many accepted the “open borders” policy, similar to the invitation of the then German Chancellor Angela Merkel in 2015. Since EU members now have the unpleasant experience of a wave of migrants behind them, they will almost certainly try to protect their borders, which will have a bad effect on Slovenia.
Our problem is that sobriety will probably come only when we will already pay a high price for the “dancing pigeon house” that rules us now. And we are already paying, but there is still no sobering up. But we will all pay – especially those who did not support the “pigeon” (Golob) in the elections. Unfortunately, we are all in the same boat, but in a democracy, even if it is virtual, the majority always decides. Whether we like it or not.
