EUROPEAN INTIFADA POLITICS



The Paris riots continue the 7th day spreading to about 20 locations. It's about disrespect, say the apologists. It is about what Sarkozy said.

Well, once again it supposedly politically incorrect language becomes a reason for violence:

An article by Jean-François Mattei, entitled “Violences urbaines, crescendo dans la barbarie” (”Urban violence, crescendo in cruelty”) blames the French state for mishandling the riots and notes “banalisation de la violence” (”vulgarization of violence”) and the “trahison de la langue” (”treason of the language”) used by Sarkozy.

But Mattei states that Sarkozy used the words “delinquents” (”delinquents”), “provocateurs” (”agitators”), and “racaille” (”rabble”). More specifically, “racaille” translates as riffraff – a “mauvaise personne” (”bad person”).

The Danes declated zero tolerance for rioting. In the meantime, the subject of Islamists terror feature significantly in the elections for the mayor of Copenhagen.
