Biden to Germans: You Are Xenophobic

RT, June 12, 2014

Vice President Joe Biden undoubtedly ruffled some feathers in Germany on Tuesday when he suggested the country was “xenophobic” and much less accommodating to immigrants compared to the United States.

Speaking at an event held by the National Association of Manufacturers in Washington, DC, Biden gave a speech in which he described three things the United States needs to do to “keep our edge” in the global economy. One of these priorities is passing comprehensive immigration reform, but the way Biden chose to frame the issue has made headlines and raised plenty of eyebrows.

“We have to pass an immigration bill,” Biden said, as quoted by the Washington Examiner, which also obtained a recording of the segment. “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.”

In a tweet by Detroit News DC Bureau Chief David Shepardson, the journalist said Biden went even further than that and added other countries in the mix, claiming that Germany, Japan, and China are all “not nearly as welcoming of immigrants” as the US.

Biden reportedly did not expand on his analysis, leaving many to question just how truthful it was. As noted by the German edition of The Local, the notion that Germany is hostile to immigrants doesn’t fit in with the facts inside Europe’s largest economy.

According to a May report by the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD), Germany has experienced a “boom” in immigration over the last few years, leapfrogging Canada and the United Kingdom to take second place as a top destination for migrants around the world, behind only the US. The OECD stated that between 2009 and 2012, permanent migration rose 38 percent as Germany moved up from eighth place.

“Such a strong increase from one year to another has been rarely observed in any major OECD country,” Thomas Liebig, one of the study’s authors, said to Bloomberg. “We can clearly speak about a boom of migration to Germany without exaggeration.”

Meanwhile, The Local noted that new data from Germany’s Federal Statistics Office show more than 15.3 million people out of the country’s 81 million-strong population have a migrant background.

    Question for you British. Is the very final king that England will ever have, alive this very moment? How much time do you have left?

    • Löwenmensch ᛟ

      You get thrown in jail for saluting like that in Germany

    • TruthBeTold

      Biden is their fake ‘loose canon’. He’s sent out to stir the pot but make it appear that Obamas’ hands are clean.

      He’s told to say these things. Notice how he’s never admonished by the administration for any ‘slip up’?

  • Unfortunately for Germany and Germans, the Vice-Idiot is wrong.

    • TruthBeTold

      He’s not an idiot. Every ‘slip up’ is planned and staged to push Obamas’ agenda while making it look like Obamas’ hands are clean.

      Basically he was sent out to call the Germans ‘racists’ so they would cower and fold.

      • Ella

        I agree, He should have said that you are too White with your Polish, Russian and Spanish immigration. It has to get darker than that.

    • Erasmus

      Any Germans reading this, cheer up. Not even Americans listen to Plugs (or any of our other “leaders”) any more. All of Washington, DC can go to he** as far as most of us are concerned.

      • I’ll second that . . . .
        A complete embarrassment for the American people ..

    Uncle Joe can ALWAYS be counted on to make a complete idiot of himself approximately once a week.

      What kind of sheckel’s is he trying to sell?

  • wretchedwhiterabbit

    “xenophobic” is just a Marxist construct. Just another weaponized word, like “racist” or “White supremacist”, that anti-Whites use to chase down White flight and to intimidate any White who opposes the intentional destruction of all White national identities, GENOCIDE, into silence.

    • Einsatzgrenadier

      The political elites believe in the ideology of neoliberal globalization, which advocates trade liberalization on an international level. In order to facilitate the free flow of capital, commodities and people across international borders, ethnic and national identities must first be dissolved and then replaced with a one-size-fits-all global identity and multicultural citizenship, followed by a single homogeneous global culture.

      Because of modern telecommunications and a more efficient transportation system, the world is shrinking in size. As the telecommunications and transportation systems further increase in technical efficiency, the world will eventually become a global village with a single global marketplace. This will be a world where multinational corporations can freely compete with each other without having to worry about national tariffs and other trade restrictions.

      Globalization is really unitarianism in its purest form. Globalists not only idealize oneness, but also believe that everything must become one, including peoples, nations, cultures and languages. Everything must be stirred together within the crucible of the global melting pot! Although they champion globalization, what they really champion is genocide. Today, whites must be destroyed. Tomorrow, all of the world’s inhabitants will destroyed, but only so they can realize their vision of new world order.

      • David Ashton

        Ethnic identity can combine with international communication – not only white nationalists want to keep their familiar ways and territories but many other nationalists do also. Patriots of the world unite, you have nothing to lose but a greedy elite!

        • wretchedwhiterabbit

          EXACTLY!! That’s the point! Nobody is flooding Black or Asian countries with non-Blacks or non-Asians, giving them affirmative action, free health care, special rights and privileges and FORCING the existing nations to “assimilate” with all these immigrants to “create a blended humanity”. Anti-Whites are ONLY creating blended humanity in EVERY White country. They don’t have a “race” problem. They have a White problem. That’s why it’s White genocide. ONLY White children are affected.

          • David Ashton

            Agreed. Whites are on the receiving end from non-white mass-migration with all the consequent evils you outline. There are some minor troubles with the unwanted cultural impacts of imported labor in non-white countries, but the scale and implications are far worse and in any case they are our problems. Globalization that reduces all humans to mere units of production and consumption, however, is opposed by many non-whites, sometimes more strongly in so far as western economies are viewed as – “white”! This feeling is strong among many Muslims. Even so, our primary requirement is to prevent the multiracial miscegenation of our own homelands, whatever other peoples think.

      • Ron Cheaters

        Once the US dollar is finished, there will be no alternative.

      • rowingfool

        Very good.

        The only difficulty with their plan is people’s stubborn attachment to their homes and neighborhood. The internationalists would like people–considered only as labor–to uproot and move anywhere in the world in response to global demand. Labor as fluid as capital.

        But that d*mn human nature just won’t cooperate! People insist on falling in love with their parks, trees, squirrels, the neighborhood store (that isn’t there anymore). Kids get attached to their schools and friends.

        All this has to be programmed out of the new proletariate. The cosmopolitan Elite will succeed in molding us into stateless drones even if it means killing us in the process–just like when they imposed a similar benevolent, idealistic vision on the Soviet Union.

      • Usually Much Calmer

        Serious question, since you’ve been thinking about this:

        Why don’t advances in communication and increased efficiency in travel enable us to remain far apart?

        Sort of like how now that you can text your mom 5 times a day you don’t have to call her every Sunday?

        Is it just that ‘connectedness’ has momentum or is there something else at play in the writ large?

        Thanks in advance for anyone’s thoughtful response!

        • A text message is just a transfer of digits. Your mother is your closest immediate female connection to your ancestry.

          Pervasive communication was once thought to be what makes every place be like every place else. Instead what has happened is that every place else is more like itself.

          • Usually Much Calmer

            QD: Thank for the input. It seems from the second paragraph that you agree that with me.

            I was asking Einsatzgrenadier to explain how ‘the telecommunications and transportation systems further increase in
            technical efficiency’->> ‘the world will eventually become a global village
            with a single global marketplace’, which I don’t see.

            Did I misunderstand you?

          • Einsatzgrenadier

            Well, the easier it is for us to move around and communicate with each other, the smaller our world becomes.

            Think about the way the world was before modern transportation and communication systems. Distances were vast, right? It took months, even years, to get from point A to point B. The same goes for long-distance communication. Mail often took months to travel across the Roman empire.

            But thanks to technological improvements in the field of transportation and the birth of the modern telecommunications industry in the 19th century, these great distances have been reduced in size. As transportation and telecommunications become more efficient because of continuous innovation, the world will keep shrinking in size until all cultures are homogenized into a single global culture and we end up living in a single global village with a single global marketplace.

    • So CAL Snowman

      Exactly, we do not FEAR non-White invaders, we DESPISE their cultures, their behavior, and their dependency on White tax payer entitlements for their survival.

    • Dr. Cramden

      The word is a control word used by the Marxists to destroy homogenous nations. There will be a better world when all Marxist socialists are dead.

    I’ve read that Germany is afraid of being too nationalistic because of the baggage of the Third Reich. It’s a shame they can’t simply defend their turf without the usual multi-culti agitators just waiting to accuse them of being Nazis.

    • Alexandra1973

      Which leads me to believe that that was on purpose–equate nationalism with genocide.

      I’m all for nationalism but against genocide.

  • Einsatzgrenadier

    So loving your own people is xenophobic? Typical leftist, anti-white “logic.”

    • Alexandra1973

      You’re supposed to love everyone…except those who don’t agree with you.

      Hm. Isn’t that a form of xenophobia that they’re displaying themselves…?

      • Sick of it

        More people and peoples disagree with them on a fundamental level than agree with them, thereby making liberals the most xenophobic people on the face of the earth.

    • Ella

      According to Biden and the anti-whites, it is “anything German is very bad.”

  • John Smith

    If so called “diversity” is such a strength, why isn’t mass immigration, govt forced/subsidized integration & affirmative action FORCED on the citizens in african, asian, m eastern countries?

    • Ron Cheaters

      It would benefit them. Not the bottom line. Charles Manson was an idiot, but he had some good ideas.

  • Samuel_Morton

    If Biden wasn’t so contemptible I actually feel sorry for him. Here he is in the latter years of his life and he is completely blinded by a perverted ideology.

  • Frank_DeScushin

    I would have responded to Biden, “If every nation with a major economy is xenophobic except for the United States, then it sounds like there may be a correlation to xenophobia and a thriving economy, Joe. Xenophobia may protect or even spur a thriving economy, but xenophobia certainly doesn’t sound like it has a negative effect on an economy based on your own admission, Joe.”

    • Ron Cheaters

      Lol #bringbackourgirls
      Lol

    • rowingfool

      And Joe would look at you dumbly and say “Huh?”.

  • E_Pluribus_Pluribus

    Biden told the National Association of Manufacturers the key to the U. S. economy is a “constant, unrelenting stream” of immigrants.

    A wag somewhere — it might have been VDARE — responded:

    “C’mon, Joe, you can do better. How about ‘inexorable, merciless deluge” of immigrants? Now THAT would really be “good for the economy.”

  • So CAL Snowman

    ” “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.””

    Now Biden is just flat out lying his butt off. Germany is the largest economy in Europe and the FOURTH largest by nominal GDP in the world. Among the top 10 biggest economies in the world Germany is the ONLY country with a stable Triple – A (AAA) credit rating. In 2013 Germany had the largest trade surplus in the world at $270 billion making it the biggest capital exporter globally. Germany achieves all of this economic supremacy with a labor force of 43.93 million workers (2012 estimate). The Former United States (FUSA) has a labor force of 156 million workers (2012 estimate) and a short term debt of $17 trillion+! The FUSA also has over $70 Trillion in long term unfunded liabilities. In 2013 Germany was the third largest exporter in the world with $1.516 trillion exported. The United States in the same year exported goods worth $1.57 trillion. Germany just like ALL White majority nations, does not need economic “help” from third world browns and blacks.

    Additionally, Germany is not a very large country. Where exactly are all of these immigrants supposed to live? If Biden wants Germany to accept millions of immigrants perhaps he should give Germany some territory (say Alaska or California) for the overflow of immigrants.

    • Ron Cheaters

      Good post

  • frederickdixon

    I believe that very many of Germany’s immigrants are in fact Germans and part-Germans from the old East bloc who happened not to be German citizens.

    • M.

      Good.

  • DennisDale

    “We’re the only non-xenophobic nation in the world that’s a major economy.”

    So then, one needn’t be “non-xenophobic” to have a major economy? And the major economy that’s about to eclipse ours–China’s–is very “xenophobic”. Furthermore, he suggests of the non-“major” economies, many, most or all are “non-xenophobic”. If I’m reading Joe correctly. What a mind! Biden 2016!

    • Ron Cheaters

      What will be his words when the US dollar finally folds?

    • adplatt126

      Maybe that says something about the advantages of being xenophobic. After all, our “major economy” is not likely to remain “major” for long. Biden, if he ever spoke to average folk, might also come to a starkly different conclusion regarding the health of our economy…

  • Bon, From the Land of Babble

    I already know what’s wrong with Biden: he’s an idiot.

    What is wrong with being xenophobic? What is wrong with wanting to preserve one’s own people and homeland from foreigners who wish to take from your children what you have built and earned?

    There is a reason people don’t like open borders

    “United States needs to do to “keep our edge” in the global economy.”

    Oh, that’s the reason for 11 million low IQ Mexicans and their 20 million low IQ relatives. To “keep our edge.” At least we have a ‘good’ reason for allowing them to illegally cross our borders and passing immigration reform.

    Biden gave a speech in which he described three things the United States needs to do to “keep our edge” in the global economy. One of these priorities is passing comprehensive immigration reform, but the way Biden chose to frame the issue has made headlines and raised plenty of eyebrows.

    Edge, what Edge? The United States is sinking fast with these illegal invaders. And this mental mutant Biden calls Germans “xenophobic, by an non existent term. Some day Germany will have to resort to drastic means to retain its identity that’s being destroyed by fools like bird brain Biden who wants to rebuild the tower of Babble called “immigration reform”.

    Why would anyone sit through a lecture by one of the biggest imbeciles in American history? Biden obviously was chosen as Obama’s VP because he is a retard who happens to be white, and this helps Obama to look the part of the mythical hip, intelligent magical negro. The influx of third-worlders, compounded with the black thugs already here, is killing this country.

  • Truth Teller

    Having lived in Germany for 5 years, I can tell you that a very high percentage of immigrants are UK STEM grads who cannot find jobs in the UK because native English and Scots Drs, engineers, programmers or other scientists are just not hired in the UK. As far as hiring indians and asians goes, the UK is as bad as Silicon Valley. That is why the Europeans like the EU. If there is no job at home there are other countries. England is where computers and programming began and where a lot, not all, but a lot of modern medicine was developed. All by White English and Scots MEN.
    Almost no French, Austrians, Belgians Hungarians or Swiss in Germany. Some Italians, Poles, Czechs and Greeks. The former east bloc Germans are not immigrants.
    Going from American airports staffed by blacks and browns to a German airport staffed by good looking people who look like me is like going to heaven. The contrast since TSA hired all those 300 pd black animals with the German army security boys with their slim builds, flat stomachs, handsome faces and tucked in shirts is absolutely amazing.

  • LHathaway

    I can’t help wonder if Biden is purposefully being comedic. I remember a radio talk show hosting Bill Clinton saying something like, “we’re going to have to vote him out of office, he’s not going to just step down” as if Bill is actually on the side of regular white folk. I bet he is.

  • Brakedust

    It’s true that Japan is less than welcoming to immigrants, especially Muslims and Africans. So what?

      Exactly. That’s how the German’s reaction should’ve been: “So what?”

  • M.

    “We’re the only non-xenophobic nation in the

    You can’t be non-xenophobic and continue to be a nation. It’s either one or the other.

  • Biden . . .ANOTHER American Embarrassment.

  • Truth Teller

    The reason Biden doesn’t like Germany is because although it is overrun with Turks (brought in by capitalists as cheap labor when the Berlin Wall went up); unlike the UK and America Germany has no such thing as affirmative action. It remains a merit qualified society. No wonder it is such an efficient country. It was such a joy to see White German postal workers, bus and subway drivers, store clerks ,construction and even gardeners. And then I had to come back to California overrun by brown and black scum.
    PS Even the ugliest German is beautiful compared to the brown bowling balls with their basketball faces that infest California and every job.

    I wholeheartedly agree – the one thing that has held Germany back the past several centuries clearly is its Germanicism. I’m reminded of the hordes of Turkish immigrants that have been turned away at German borders only to return to Turkey and break virgin soil on a countless number of scientific and artistic fronts. Germany must still be kicking itself.

    Now do you understand that why, in spite of people like me making friendly motions toward him, that we in the greedy weasel billionaire club have decided to ditch him and leave him behind when the time comes? They talk about no child left behind, but sometimes you have to leave a Vice-President or two or three or four or five behind.

    Biden would sell us all out for a stick of gum, expose the location of my extradition-free tax haven, and the worst part is that he wouldn’t even know that he would be selling us out, and then he’d have the audacity to complain that the stick of gum is stale, start raging about it.

    They talk about making this guy President. You give him the nuclear football, give Al Quaeda a used Buick, and they’ll wind up trading, and Joe will lose his head when he found out that Al Quaeda sold him a lemon.
