Now the Boot Is on the Other Foot. So to Speak.

Since the WSJ has the story behind a pay-wall… Austria Stops Criticizing Hungary’s Border Fence, Builds Own Border Fence | Frontpage Mag

Austria has invoked its intention to beef up border security before but until now carefully avoided the word fence. That changed on Wednesday when Austrian Interior Minister Johanna Mikl-Leitner told public ORF radio “of course it’s about a fence, but not just that, it’s also about fortified structures in the border crossing areas.”

It wasn’t too long ago, that the EU, the UN, Mexico and everyone and their brother was condemning the US for plans to increase border security. Now they are building frontier security systems reminiscent of the Cold War. I wonder when the UN will get around to condemning them.

And Austrians are buying shotguns and other long-guns like there is no tomorrow.

Gun dealers report that it is women driving the sales rush. This year alone, police say 70,000 guns have been sold.

‘Virtually all shotguns are currently sold out, because you need no permit for them’, said Thomas Ortner, spokesman for an arms dealer in Upper Austria.

Rifles are also selling out, but you need a permit. And the classes to own handguns – one place that had been holding classes every 5 weeks are now holed thing weekly.

If this turns ugly, it has the potential to turn really ugly. As someone said

The Euros have a proven zero-to-jackboots time lower than just about anybody on the planet. The migrant muzzies might want to think about what happens when they get Hans and Pierre feeling good and scared and backed into a corner.

The last time the Jerries had a populist demagogue with bad hair campaigning on a nationalist platform, he was no Donald Trump.

One thought on “Now the Boot Is on the Other Foot. So to Speak.

  1. When I lived there in the late 1970’s, about 95% of everyone there had the invasion from Germany still fresh in their mind. Those who didn’t experience it, saw the remains of bullet holes in building and especially in the churches, every day. I saw many many buildings myself with holes in them. I asked why they didn’t repair them and they said that they liked them, but as a reminder. We also have to remember that buildings there are permanent and way less transient than those in the US. As a matter of fact, I went to google maps and zoomed into my old neighborhood and used street view, just last year, and it all looks the same. These people still have the thought of invasions in their mind, and you get your ass they’re not going to go down quietly. Yea, I bet there’s a quiet majority taking target practice too. Yea, it could get ugly very quickly. And, as far as our border security, well, I’m ready to vote for whomever is the strongest on this topic. Kb
