Pope blames illegal migration to capitalist countries … on capitalism

Pope Francis was at it again, offering up a confused “narrative” about illegal immigration in his bid to hector Western nations seeking to control their lawless borders through the construction of border walls. This time, his Marxist analysis of things got in the way of his theologically-charged argument, making him look like a V.S. Naipaul-style third-world boob.

With a hat tip to the Daily Caller, get a load of this interview he gave to a Spanish journalist, blasting the West’ for building walls against human surges of unvetted illegal immigrants, reported by Crux:

Francis said “in general” capitalism provokes the situations of poverty that drive people to flee, because “fewer and fewer reach people with a lot of money and there are more poor people with very little money.”

“This is the hourglass,” he argued. “Capitalism conceived of as a savage, not a social market economy […] What doesn’t work is the world of finance. This also creates wars, for the possession of wealth, does it not, whether they are international or national? I argue that we are already in a third world war, in pieces.”
