SEARCH BLOG: EUROPEAN BACKLASH
France, again, is on the forefront of the European backlash against Muslim immigration.
In a new measure expected to pass the French Assembly in 15 days or less, new family arrivals must speak French. Immigrant parents must guarantee their kids will behave. And breadwinners must show earnings of up to 1,600 euros a month. [source]And this was unexpected?
There is a fine line past which the citizens of a country rise up against "open doors." When "diversity" and "multiculturalism" take on the form of a defacto invasion that quickly erodes the cultural and social character of a county, citizens will demand that their government take action to stop or dramatically reduce immigration.
Which country will emulate France next? The Netherlands? Germany? The U.S.?What, you haven't been reading blogs? Oh, newspapers will eventually get wind of what is happening.
The only "problem" I have is that I agreed with the French on nuclear energy and now I understand what is motivating their president's actions about immigration [it's tough to admit you agree with the French on anything]. While he will be condemned as a racist or bigot, he recognizes that the longer France allows people who either are not interested in "being French" or having skills beneficial to France, the greater the problems that will occur between the French people and the immigrants. These are problems associated with the economic economic cost of supporting undereducated and jobless immigrants in a country that feels compelled to provide a large social safety net to all comers.The French are struggling with how much of the Golden Goose to share before the Golden Goose is killed... a moral dilemma facing all wealthier nations where certain factions claim that they are "responsible" for the well-being of citizens of poorer nations.
Hence, France is not interested in the tired and poor. They want the vigorous and self-reliant only... those who will improve the economic bounty of the country as opposed to those who will simply feed off it.
Does that responsibility entitle the wealthier nations to "repair" the problem by eliminating the governments over those people since they must be "irresponsible?"After all, why just shift the problem to another location?
