Modernity in a nutshell
JULY 17, 2019
A video clip out of France shows a Socialist Mayor dancing awkwardly with a large group of Algerian soccer fans as they chant “Allahu Akbar”.
A heart-warming display of diversity, I’m sure you’ll agree.
Respondents to the clip were not too impressed given that Algerian fans have rioted in, looted and trashed major French cities twice within the last two weeks alone.
As we reported on Monday, nearly 3000 were arrested across France as fans celebrated their team’s Africa Cup of Nations semi-final win by throwing smoke bombs, projectiles, and firecrackers at police.
During similar riots last week, a mother and her two daughters were mown down by a vehicle in Montpellier, an incident that left the mother dead and her baby daughter in critical condition.
Algerians also poured out onto the streets following their team’s victory over Ivory Coast.
They celebrated that win by wielding chainsaws, smashing shop windows and breaking in.
Quite how the Socialist Mayor thought it was a good idea to attach himself to such criminality is anyone’s guess.
Meanwhile, Breitbart reports, “A study of the election preferences of the French military and the gendarmes has revealed an increasing trend to support populist leader Marine Le Pen and her Rassemblement National (National Rally/RN).”
Gee, I wonder why.
