US VP Biden: Germany is 'xenophobic'
The Local ^ | 6/11/2014

Posted on 06/12/2014 4:06:10 AM PDT by markomalley

US Vice President Joe Biden suggested Germany was hostile towards immigrants in a speech on Tuesday, in which he described the US as the only "non-xenophobic" major economy in the world.

In the speech in Washington DC at the National Association of Manufacturers' annual summit, Biden said the US needed to reform immigration policy to maintain its competitive edge.

“We have to pass an anti-immigration bill. Look at Germany. Look at the rest of the world. We're the only non-xenophobic nation in the world that's a major economy,” he said.

However, the facts would seem to disagree with Biden's thoughts about Germany. It is an increasingly popular destination for immigrants, suggesting it has an open immigration policy.

A recent study from the OECD (Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development) showed that Germany had experienced an immigration boom in the last five years, making it the second most popular destination for permanent immigrants in the world.

And figures released from Federal Statistics Office (Destatis) in June found that more than 15.3 million people living in Germany have a migrant background.

Many immigrants are better qualified than a lot of Germans, filling a gap in Germany's skilled labour market, according to a report also released in June from the Berlin Institute for Population and Development.

So what’s wrong with being xenophobic?

Face it. Most of those folks only want to come in and destroy us (that is, make us be like where they came from)

We welcome anyone who adopts and adheres to our founding father’s prnciples. Unfortunately our government (liberal controlled) has accepted all sorts of anti-American criminals and terrorists.

queue VP Biden’s theme song:

I could while away the hours
Conferrin’ with the flowers
Consultin’ with the rain

And my head, I’d be scratchin’
While my thoughts were busy hatchin’
If I only had a brain!

I’d unravel every riddle
For any individual
In trouble or in pain

With the thoughts he’ll be thinkin’
He could be another Lincoln
If he only had a brain!

Oh, I could tell you why the ocean’s near the shore
I could think of things I never thunk before
And then I’d sit and think some more

I would not be just a nothin’
My head all full of stuffin’
My heart all full of pain

I would dance and be merry
Life would be a ding-a-derry
If I only had a brain
Gosh, it would be awful
To reason out the reason
For things I can’t explain

Then perhaps I’ll deserve you
And be even worthy of you
If I only had a brain!

Good God, it’s getting embarrassing to be an American these days.

I feel like shouting from the rooftops, “I DIDN’T VOTE FOR THEM!!”

Why is it only white countries require diversity. Nobody ever complains that there are only 7 white people in the entire country of bangladesh, or on the entire continent of africa.

When you engage your adversaries you need to engage with ALL your adversaries or you will lose. Blame immigration on just liberals and forget the treason committed by big business is a flaw strategy. Liberals are visible with their efforts, but big business is invisible with their efforts. Big business is worst then liberalism because they have done more to arm our enemies and undermine our borders and privacy. I say take out big business and most of the funding to liberals and RINO’s amnesty efforts will disappear. Why do you think Wall Street stock market fell after Cantor lost. The filthy CEO’s sense the Main Street uprising in the GOP, wait till OWS start taking out establishment Dems. This is what happens when corporations and big gov start to destablilize society with radical changes aimed at filling their pockets with filthy profits and power at the expense of the middle class.

Liberals, during the eight years of GWB, kept telling us what an embarrassment we were in the eyes of the world. Really. Well, the same people need to ask the same question of this administration. Did Cheney or Bush ever refer to any of our allies as racists in a speech?

Joe, the Germans don’t hate all things and people that are foreign to them. They just hate you.

Countries avoid having open borders for a reason, Joe... and it's not xenophobia.

Good fences make good neighbors.

I’ll take your post a step further. Why in the world would we as a Constitutional Republic want to allow our values and heritage to be watered down by 3rd World savages?

The point is moot now and only a CWII would ever be able to restore what we once had.

Biden is a flaming globalist fraud, hell bent on creating a NWO Babylon. He hates nationalism and he loathes Traditional Western Values.

“...the US as the only “non-xenophobic” major economy in the world...”

What he meant to say, but was too dishonest to say it, is that the Democrats want to be perceived as noble when what they’re really doing is flood the country with illegals, who then... of course... vote Democrat.

Meanwhile, all the foreigners who fill out the forms and wait and take the tests and stand in line... get sh*t on by our “noble” Democrats, who, by the way, don’t really give a sh*t about foreigners one way or the other.

You think there's an end game involved in what you said?

I'm convinced that there is, as you point out about the lack of complaints regarding “diversity” in Mozambique, Ghana, Japan, or any other non-caucasian nation. Well...maybe Israel, but that's a given.

If you were joking, I nominate this as the funniest post of the day.

If you weren't joking, I nominate it as the dumbest.

How chauvinistic is this: to call everyone else xenophobic!

Biden is such a big ass, but he serves a function for the administration. He is worse even than Obama, so if Obama is removed from office, Biden takes over.

Either way, America is screwed.

Why. What good are foreigners who insist on remaining foreigners even when they enter our country?

The friends of America choose to accept our values and come here through the legal process. Many of the rest are enemies. It’s wise to be fearful of what our enemies will do (Not necessarily afraid of them mind you)

It sounds like Biden has been hitting the sauce. Time for the secret service to get him dried out again.

I’ve posted this many times, but it continues to ring true.

In April 2012 I was vacationing in DC, and walking along the executive office side of the WH. Security shuts down everything, ped and vehicle traffic. After about 15 minutes, out comes a fleet of escort cars and Joe Biden riding in an armored Suburban. A guy in a 1000 dollar suit leans over to me and says “Joe couldn’t find his way home for lunch if he didn’t have a chauffeur.”

Message to the those who think we can “impeach Obama”. Please impeach Biden first. At least Obama is only drunk on hubris and power.

Really brilliant VP pick, who in their right mind would ever harm him with Biden next in line? He’s a human shield!

Business isn’t conservative these days. Check out the LGBT, Green Party, Feminist, etc. agenda items sponsored by Big Corporate these days???

Corporate liberalism is the rule of the day.

Just because they “make money” doesn’t mean they aren’t liberal.
