SEARCH BLOG: IMMIGRATION
In my previous posts about the coming European backlash against Muslim immigration, I said that Nicholas Sarcozy would get elected (and did get elected) because of his position against Muslim immigration... and that was the first step of the general European backlash against Muslims.
Now from Pat Buchanan:
The obvious is not so hard to see after all.
Sarkozy jumped ahead of the pack of candidates because he dealt in no uncertain terms with what is the mind of the average Frenchman. The topic of unrestricted immigration and the impact of nonassimilation by large groups of immigrants. He even mentions the adverse impact of economic migrants who flooded France the last 40 years and are of great concern to the French nation.
It is silly to believe Sarkozy got elected because of his stance on tax cuts, free trade, or even giving longer lunch hours to French shopkeepers. If those were the issues the French were concerned about, Ms. Royale the socialist would have won. Most Frenchman, after all, are socialists.
