    Talk the talk … AND walk the walk. European males better find their balls and protect their women and children against the Sharia concepts shattering civil society.

    1. The problem is, when they do find the balls, they will be called racist for protecting/insulating themselves from the Islamic hordes. But that ok, this will push the elected politician to the far right, and things will sort themselves with a tougher government elected by the majority that see the damage mass Islamic migration does. Many EU countries are starting to wake up and smell the Sharia. Retarded Islamic law is not welcome.

        I certainly wouldn’t worry if they banned me from their countries because I am ‘West’.
        Even if they wanted it, I wouldn’t be running around groping the females at any chance.

        1. Any way you slice it, it is very disrespectful for any migrant of any culture to go to a foreign country and abuse their laws and act like animals. I hope the native people soon rise up against Islamic violence and superiority complex. Jail or deport them. Europe is certainly a worse place now than before mass immigration of uncivilized people raping the land and the people. No wonder they need brutal dictators to keep whipping them into shape.
          Fvck Allah and the camel he rode in on.
