LIVE THREAD: French Riots
April 4, 2006 | FR

Posted on 04/04/2006 10:33:28 AM PDT by Peach

Post your observations here.

Richard Miniter was on FNC and said that even if an employee is caught on videotape stealing from their employers, they cannot be fired.

Watch closely. That's the future for America a few years down the road. Republicans killing themselves by not backing the House immigration bill will put the Dems back in the drivers seat and Socialism will set in. This along with the invasion by Mexico we will certainly have riots to force even more Socialism until the country falls.

Know one wants to work and when they do they don't want to be fired no matter how bad their performance is.

Oh, I almost forgot, they want prosperity too, with wine and brie.

This is what happens when socialism becomes the dominant philosophy. It is happening here.
Communists want to cause social unrest leading to an upheaval in society, then to revolution, then communism steps in during the confusion to stabilize society.

Not to be racial profiling but are not most of the blacks seen in these riots immigrants to France from Morocco or Algeria.

CNN reported that the violence was coming from hard line immigrant groups.

Not trying to burst anyone's bubble but I am in Paris right now and the protests are very isolated. I was all over the center of Paris today and it was quiet except for the place d'Italie. It was blocked off to tourists.

Thank you for identifying the location of the main fighting. It seems all the dolts on the MSM can manage to say is "Paris."

Is that really a picture of a bunch of folks watching as some guy gets his head kicked in, or is the black dude just dancing? Or are all of these just old stock photos of the Seattle Mardi Gras riots?

>> they probably all are being driven into the arms of Le Pen. And I don't blame them.

The guy on Fox seemed to think that Le pen would be the worst outcome possible.<<

Look who one of LePen's allies is:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Charles_de_Gaulle_%28grandson%29

One way I have heard LePen's philosophy described is "'France for the French,' with a very narrow definition of 'French.'

These are the WTO anarchists doing what they always do.

Let's not forget Canada, Seattle, Genoa, Italy, and of course D.C. where the police broke heads early on and defused the very thought of rioting.

Oh man, you should have seen the Mounties cracking skulls up here, it was a beautiful site, my FRiend.

I'd say so. It's much more breathtaking to say "Riots in Paris" (!), than to say "localized violent street demonstrations in the 13th arrondissement east of the university district."

As I said upthread, it's very simple, you just have to pick up the code words used by the euro press:

Student = White Elite Native French

Protestor = White Elite Native French

Youth = North African Muslim Immigrant (or child of immigrants) from the Banlieus (suburban slums/projects)

Once you catch the jargon, it's simple. The Youth are just there to steal from and beat up the Students/Protestors. Later, the Youth will have their own senseless riots, burning cars and buses, etc. But right now they're busy preying upon the Students/Youth.

There were even more spectacular examples of this phenomenon last week. Young women getting beat up and ripped off by the packs of roaming Youth whenever they got separated from the main herd of Students/Protestors.

I drove all over the 1st to the 7th today. Nothing.....

Nothing in the south of France over the weekend as well. Not even a pickpocket. How boring.

I did however see a lot of drunks lying in the streets and several women in veils (muslims?) approached my spouse and I for money.

We leave tomorrow. Will update if anything new.

On the other hand, while the TV press may over-hype the situation in Paris, it's also maddening that they never show anything happening beyond Paris - the scope of the reporting is so narrow, like the stationary blind man reporting on an elephant based on what little he can touch.
