a group of far-right activists have chartered a boat in the Mediterranean to disrupt rescue missions.
Identitarian activists for the ‘Defend Europe’ campaign raised €65,000 to support efforts to impede humanitarian missions.
Defend Europe intends to follow search-and-rescue vessels, document their activities and ‘confront’ them by blockading them on the seas. The aim is to force the NGO ships to alter their routes, drain their financial and organisational resources, as well inspire others to support the mission.
Thousands of innocent people could drown every day if their missions are successful.
Are the NGO vessels ready to destroy the identitarian vessel as soon as they encounter it? If not, then the identitarians win. It is that simple. You cannot help the innocent without killing the bad guys. You cannot be a “rescue vessel” without also being a combat vessel, because how do you reach in time the people who need to be rescued without being ready to eliminate without delay those who are trying to obstruct you? Pacifism does not work, has never worked and will never work.
But does the False Left get this?
Nick Lowles, chief executive of HOPE not hate, said: “While the Identitarian movement has always used controversial and confrontational tactics the hiring of this ship is emblematic of a dangerous new confidence within the movement.
“The project also reveals an increasingly international threat, with key activists coming from across Europe while support, including financial, has flooded in from around the world.
“We will be monitoring the ship’s movements very closely and liaising with NGOs and supporters over the coming months to ensure the relevant authorities are aware of the situation. We will forge a coalition of progressive organisations to oppose this dangerous new development on our high seas.”
“Monitoring” does not kill identitarians. “Liasing” does not kill identitarians. “Ensuring awareness” does not kill identitarians. “Forging a coalition” does not kill identitarians. TORPEDOES would work. ROCKET-PROPELLED GRENADES might also work. SHOOTING THE IDENTITARIANS before they even board their ship could be another option. Unless you are talking openly about measures like these, you too are accountable for the thousands of innocent people drowning every day.
Identitarians also existed in myth:
Thought to have been descended from the Umbri and the Pelasgians
In Virgil’s Aeneid, and also according to Livy, the Rutuli are led by Turnus, a young prince to whom Latinus, king of the Latins, had promised the hand of his daughter Lavinia in marriage. When the Trojans arrived in Italy, Latinus [Note: great-grandson of Saturn, by no coincidence] decided to give his daughter to Aeneas because of instructions he had received from the gods to marry his daughter to a foreigner. Turnus was outraged and led his people as well as several other Italian tribes against the Trojans in war.
This is how we dealt with them:
Turnus begs Aeneas either to spare him or give his body back to his people. Aeneas considers but upon seeing the belt of Pallas on Turnus, he is consumed by rage and finishes him off. The last line of the poem describes Turnus’ unhappy passage into the Underworld.
