During this Christmas at in hometown, we were watching TV during breakfast. At some moment on the news, they showed the work of the NGO saving lifes on the Mediterranean sea. (MSF Aquarius)
Suddenly my parents started to shout out to the TV, calling those NGO members “Assholes” “Delinquents” “Gangster”, between others insults. I just could not believe what I was witnessing.
I asked them why they were telling it. They said that the NGO was making money and scamming those immigrants, which they actually saved from the dead.
Then I asked for facts or proves of it. Both did not answer me, and my father even started to tell me how a girl in my hometown was stolen while she was drunk, sitting and puking on a bank. I asked my father how he knows she was stolen by an immigrant. No answer again and tons of “… but…” changing to other topics, where they could neither prove it. Then my father starts speaking about a Romanian mafia group which was stealing in the village of my mum. Funny fact that he forgot about that Romanians did not come over the Mediterranean sea.
When they have no more things to answer they always “scape” with an “it’s enough, I don’t want to discuss anymore”.
“A friend of the daughter of the sister of XXXXX told me that an immigrant….”
“They are breaking up inside the flats and stealing all. A friend of a neighbour was stolen last month”.
“Hey, really, I’m not racist, but…”
These people should be a kind of wizards to know that immigrants are doing those crimes, and not spanish people. Noone of my parents could prove me those crimes with an official newspaper article or source.
We have to thank WhatsApp and Facebook because of this, where spanish nazis are free to spread fake news and scare the people, at the same time generating that hate against immigrants.
I have to say that my parents have never met personally an immigrant. Even though they told me that the situation is now out of control,
Because of this, more than ever, donate those NGO and try to open the eyes of those ignorant people full of hate.
Spread love instead of hate, and don’t forget that we’re all humans, made of the same shit.
