Klavan: The Madmen Are Running The Asylum At The U.N.

We know nations in the European Union have already outlawed speech against Islam – but could the United Nations be trying to limit negative speech concerning immigration? On Tuesday's episode of "The Andrew Klavan Show," Andrew Klavan spoke about why the elites are refusing to listen to the people on this issue, and in some cases trying to censor them all together.

"The U.N. next week is going to hold this meeting in Marrakesh, and they have this global compact on migration – it’s called 'the global compact for safe, orderly and regular migration,'" he explained. "You can tell by the name it’s all about being in favor of migration. It pays a little bit of lip-service to the sovereignty of the nations who are being swept under by the people from failed states; it doesn’t pay any attention to the people who want to keep their culture intact, to whether they can handle and afford these people, all the services that western nations provide."

Klavan said, "They don’t talk about that at all, all they really talk about is ‘don’t you insult these poor migrants’ who get to sweep into their countries. Essentially this is all these clowns who sit around at the U.N telling the west that we have to take these migrants in, because other countries won’t do it, instead of chasing some of these tyrants and idiots out and establishing a rule of property law, free trade, capitalism, all those things that help people come out of poverty. Instead of doing that, they let the tyrants and madmen run the asylum, and now they want everyone to sign on."

There is widespread rejection of the UN’s measure from all over Europe, he said, but the elites within the U.N. and the E.U. are choosing to ignore the opposition voices.

"The E.U. Migration Commissioner said he doesn’t understand why anybody would oppose the pact, because it’s not binding, so why wouldn’t you sign it," Klavan said. "That is absurd, if you don’t agree with it why would you sign it? Once you sign it you accept the terms of the pact, which is that basically migration is a human right, and anybody should be able to do it."

The bestselling author of "The Leftese Dictionary" noted that there is growing frustration from Europeans who want their nations protected, but officials are choosing to expand "hate speech" into including any anti-immigration sentiment.

He continued: "The people want to protect their nations, they want a right to say who comes into their nations. Even welcoming nations like ours can be taxed beyond our ability to take people in. The elite hear these voices, and they want them to shut up. They are telling you, 'Don’t tell us what to do, we’re the elites.' The way they do it is by defining speech they don’t like as hate speech."

Video and transcript below:

The U.N. next week is going to hold this meeting in Marrakesh, and they have this global compact on migration – it’s called “the global compact for safe, orderly and regular migration”. You can tell by the name it’s all about being in favor of migration. It pays a little bit of lip-service to the sovereignty of the nations who are being swept under by the people from failed states, it doesn’t pay any attention to the people who want to keep their culture intact, to whether they can handle and afford these people, all the services that western nations provide.

They don’t talk about that at all, all they really talk about is “don’t you insult these poor migrants” who get to sweep into their countries. Essentially this is all these clowns who sit around at the U.N telling the west that we have to take these migrants in, because other countries won’t do it, instead of chasing some of these tyrants and idiots out and establishing a rule of property law, free trade, capitalism, all those things that help people come out of poverty. Instead of doing that, they let the tyrants and madmen run the asylum, and now they want everyone to sign on.

Of course in England, something like 40,000 people have already signed a petition against this. The EU Migration Commissioner said he doesn’t understand why anybody would oppose the pact, because it’s not binding, so why wouldn’t you sign it? That is absurd, if you don’t agree with it why would you sign it? Once you sign it you accept the terms of the pact, which is that basically migration is a human right, and anybody should be able to do it.

I’m not sure what this E.U. MP’s name is, but he was protesting this pact, and he described this idea that they’re going to simply shut down the voice of the people: “Participating countries are set to sign this agreement, and although this current agreement isn’t binding, it’s still meant to be the legal framework on which the participating countries commit themselves to build new legislation. One basic element of this new agreement is the extension of the definition of hate speech. The agreement wants to criminalize migration speech, criticism of migration will become a criminal offense.”

All around the world anti-immigration groups are rising up, all around the world nationalist leaders are getting more and more votes. Trump wins in America by promising to build a wall on the border. Angela Merkel is finished in Germany because she let all those people come sweeping in. The people want to protect their nations, they want a right to say who comes into their nations, even welcoming nations like ours can be taxed beyond our ability to take people in. The elite hear these voices, and they want them to shut up. They are telling you, “don’t tell us what to do, we’re the elites.” The way they do it is by defining speech they don’t like as hate speech.
