Red Bull chief Dietrich Mateschitz, considered as Austria’s richest man has criticized the open border policy of most nations in Europe and the political correctness as he pointed out that these policies are destroying the true cultural diversity of Europe.
In an interview with Kleine Zeitung, Mateschitz indicated that the decisions of politicians to open the border that resulted in Europe’s migration crisis were “unpardonable” and further likened the business where “if a company were to make mistakes on the same scale, it would have gone broke”.
He pointed out the “hypocrisies” of those politicians welcoming the refugees as he said: “I am talking about the fact that none of the people shouting ‘refugees welcome’ or ‘we can do it’, were preparing their own guest rooms or tents in their gardens to accommodate half a dozen migrants.”
He further stated that “Even then it was clear to everyone that most of the people arriving in the continent did not correspond to the definition of the refugee. In any case, not “
The statement of European Commission Vice-President Frans Timmemans where he said that “Any society, anywhere in the world, will be diverse in the future — that’s the future of the world,” draw criticism from Mateschitz where he said that he is taking a stand against the “destabilization of Europe”, which according to him has jeopardized the “uniqueness of [the continent’s] diversity and individuality with its different cultures and languages”.
He further stated: “I hope I’m not the only one who’s worried that one of the highest officials in Brussels said that countries which aren’t multicultural should be wiped off the map”
Mateschitz also gave his viewpoint on political correctness as he stated: “It seems that no one dares to tell the truth, even if everyone knows what the truth is.”
He stressed that the problems facing the European Union were created by those who belong to the “co-called intellectual elite”. He said “Policies which are steeped in political correctness have been imposed in the name of a self-proclaimed, so-called intellectual elite who have nothing to contribute to our country neither economically nor culturally despite their best intentions,”
Pressed with a question that he too is a member of the “elite”, Mateschitz refuted the notion and said that he is a “humanist” that “basically opposes any dogma”.
