Italy’s new prime minister is so fabulous! Here she is on a late night TV show explaining the main driver of the African migrant crisis:
“This is called the CFA franc. It is the colonial currency that France prints for 14 African nations, to which it applies seigniorage and by virtue of which it exploits the resources of these nations.
“This is a child who works in a gold mine in Burkina Faso. Burkina Faso is one of the poorest nations in the world but it has gold. France prints colonial money for Burkina Faso and in return, they demand that 50% of everything that Burkina Faso exports ends up in the coffers of the French Treasury.
“The gold that this child goes down a tunnel to extract mostly ends up in the coffers of the French state.
“So the solution is not to take the Africans and bring them to Europe. The solution is to free Africa from certain Europeans who exploit it and allow these people to live off of what they have.”
