While politicians get threatened with removal if they don’t go along with it, the French migrant crisis leaves French citizens worried.
What happens when a mayor tries to deal with the French migrant crisis? Others petition to remove him from office:
So, what do the average citizens of France think about the French migrant crisis? Breitbart recently reported on that question and the answer is not good:
The survey found that 93 per cent of French believe the threat of more terror attacks is high, and 71 per cent feel the security situation in France has got worse over the last five years.
More broadly, 59 per cent of those polled said they did not feel safe anywhere, with almost one in four (24 per cent) opting to “strongly agree” with the statement.
Reflecting the insecurity respondents said they felt, 69 per cent think the police and gendarmerie are understaffed, and the survey found the French overwhelmingly have a positive view of law enforcement.
The vast majority of respondents (88 per cent) believe France should deport foreigners sentenced to prison for serious offences, and 84 per cent want the country to create more prison places.
A slight majority (55 per cent) would like to see France exit the European Union’s open borders Schengen zone.
Of course, the fact that people don’t feel safe doesn’t prove beyond reasonable doubt that they are unsafe. But then again the French really can’t trust their government to be honest about their safety. If an elected mayor can get in trouble for saying something that reveals the French migrant crisis, then how much more can police and other unelected state employees be deterred from letting the public know what is going on.
Notice, for example, the details of this story about a double homicide in France, reported by this French news site (emphasis added):
A man was arrested in Paris on Friday suspected of slitting the throats of his father and brother at the entrance to a building in the capital’s trendy 11th district, police sources told AFP.
The sources, who asked not to be named because they were not authorised to speak publicly, said the reason for the attack was being investigated.
The two men died at the scene despite efforts by paramedics to save them.
“I came down and saw one body in the hall and another in the courtyard. There was blood everywhere,” one resident told Le Parisien newspaper.
Some witnesses said the suspect made remarks “linked to radical Islam” but the police urged caution, saying the killer’s motives were unknown.
Nothing is said about the nationality or culture of the family. Only if you read down further will you find a comment by a witness that gives you a clue:
“There was another man standing beside him, dressed in a white djellaba (loose-fitting tunic worn by some Muslims). He fell to his knees and prayed until the police came to take him away,” 21-year-old Thomas told AFP.
If the witness hadn’t mentioned the djellaba, there would have been no detail to indicate to readers if the suspect might have been an immigrant. The media is treating such issues as unmentionable.
No wonder people are afraid. When one begins to think that everyone is keeping you from knowing the truth, you start to feel insecure!
