THE Dalai Lama repeated his racist remarks on immigration yesterday as he claimed “Europe was for Europeans” and all immigrants should return to their country of origin.
He was speaking to the BBC when he said he was “an admirer of the spirit of the European Union,” but warned that there was a danger that Europe will become dominated by Muslims and Africans.
In the wide ranging interview he took US President Donald Trump to task, saying he had a “lack of moral principle” and that his “America first” policy was wrong.
But it appears that the reactionary separatist has not shifted on views that were branded “racist” last year when he argued “Europe was for Europeans.”
He insisted that immigrants that have fled wars and volatile situations in their home countries should go home.
“A limited number is OK,” the Dalai Lama said, “but the whole of Europe [will] eventually become Muslim country, African country — impossible.”
He also said that if he reincarnates as a woman then “she should be attractive otherwise people would rather not look at that face.”
The Dalai Lama fled Tibet in 1959 following a failed CIA-backed uprising and has been living in India ever since.
