“Members of America’s far-right are funding a ship whose primary purpose is to harass Middle-Eastern refugees while they’re in danger at sea according to the Independent. The ship has reportedly been hired for the express purpose of “hampering” the rescue of refugees. The name of the group funding the hate-vessel is called Defend Europe, a group representing Europe’s far-right and anti-Islam radicals.”
“The ship that was bought by a group of far-right YouTubers to stop refugees getting to Europe across the Mediterranean Sea ran into trouble off the coast of Libya and had to be helped by a refugee rescue boat, the group behind the rescue boat said.
Sea-Eye Chairman Michael Buschheuer said, “To help those who are in distress is the duty of everyone who is at sea — no matter their origins, skin color, religion or views.”
