Hello to my American friends,
As you know, the Socialist François Hollande won the presidential elections in France , last Sunday. It is a catastrophe for France . Hollande was elected by the Muslims. A survey (of 10,000 Muslims) shows that 93% of the Muslims voted for him.
As 2 million Muslims participated in this election, Hollande got 1,720,000 Muslim votes more than Sarkozy did: (0.93-0.07) x 2,000,000 = 1,720,000. But at the end, from the entire population, he got only 1,139,316 votes more than Sarkozy. So, without the Muslims’ votes, Sarkozy would have been re-elected.
All the Muslim criminals feel now empowered. Criminality is already on the rise (1,700 cars were burnt in France for the first night). Muslims are screaming anti-French and anti-Jews watchwords in our streets. Veiled women, wearing the illegal burqa, are strolling in our streets.
And, as if this wasn’t enough, Hollande wants to give to all foreigners the right to vote in our elections!
France is facing a very hard situation. We are heading for civil war in a few years.
That’s the latest news from occupied France .
So being the skeptic that I am, I decided to do a little digging and here’s what I found:
In fairness, I can’t find confirmation of the promise of amnesty, if anything, it appears that Hollande was leaning the other way in the second round of the election or so the UK Telegraph noted:
Under pressure to respond to the 18 per cent of voters who backed National Front candidate Marine Le Pen in Sunday’s first round, Mr Hollande also stipulated that he would uphold and enforce a ban on the full Islamic veil, despite the fact he abstained in a Right-wing-led parliamentary vote in 2010.
“In a period of crisis in which we find ourselves, limiting economic immigration is necessary and essential,” said the centre-Left candidate who two polls released yesterday suggest will beat his conservative rival Nicolas Sarkozy in the May 6 run-off by between eight and nine percentage points.
But he does plan to try to revise French law to allow Muslim residents without French citizenship to vote in municipal elections, that is a fact…similar to the moves in certain US areas that are allowing non-citizens to vote.
I also can’t validate the number claims on the cars torched other than to note that there was unrest…but if you have watched France for a while, you know that this has been going on for years and the cheese eating surrender monkeys have just ignored it – but there is a basis for the election analysis here:
A study into the voting patterns that nudged François Hollande to victory in France’s May 6 presidential election reveals that his win—and the resulting rupture of the Franco-German axis that has defined Europe for decades—was overwhelmingly due to the Muslim vote.
During his campaign, Hollande courted France’s Muslim vote by offering an amnesty to all of the 400,000 illegal Muslim immigrants living in the country. He also pledged to revise French law to allow Muslim residents without French citizenship to vote in municipal elections.
On Election Day, these overtures paid Hollande rich dividends.
An unprecedented number of France’s Muslims—2 million—came out to vote. An astonishing 93 percent of these voted for Hollande, while only 7 percent voted for the incumbent, Nicolas Sarkozy. This means 1.7 million Muslim votes went to Hollande. And, since Hollande defeated Sarkozy by only 1.1 million votes in the election as a whole, it’s clear that the Muslim vote was one deciding factor placing Hollande in the Élysée Palace. Soeren Kern, senior fellow for European politics at the Strategic Studies Group, said, “The French vote marks the first time that Muslims have determined the outcome of a presidential election in a major Western European country.”
I looked up the source attributed by the article, Soeren Kern – both this guy and the Strategic Studies Group are real and credible. Kern is a dual citizen of the US and Germany, served in the US Air Force and has done research and/or advised many important and influential clients. His bio is here.
I found the article that Kerns was quoted in to be provocative, far more so than the email would indicate. The author, Jeremiah Jacques continues:
The fact that France was the nation where the Muslim vote brought about a sea change is important for two key reasons.
First, when it comes to immigration issues, France provides what Kern calls “a preview of things to come” for the rest of Europe. With 5 to 6 million Muslims, France is home to Europe’s largest Muslim population, and those numbers are expected to exponentially increase in the years ahead. As France’s politically active Muslim population grows, and as the majority of Muslims cast their vote for leftist and socialist parties, conservative parties will find it harder all the time to win elections in France.
Other European countries are experiencing similar influxes of Muslims immigrants, and could begin to see more elections tipped by the Islamic vote.
Also noteworthy is Hollande’s pledge to revise French law to allow Muslim residents without French citizenship to vote in municipal elections. Most Muslims in France—and in Europe as a whole—suffer higher levels of unemployment and live in lower-income households. These tendencies weld socialists and Muslims together in a power-dependence relationship—between the providers of welfare benefits and the providers of votes. For this reason, socialists like Hollande enact policies that increase Muslim immigration, which in turn creates more voters for socialist politicians.
The second reason it is noteworthy that France was the location of this Muslim political overthrow is because, for decades, Europe has been defined by the Franco-German leadership alliance. But, while conservative Sarkozy was submissive to Germany’s prescription of austerity measures to remedy the eurozone’s economic ailments, Socialist Hollande is overtly opposed to it. Instead, he believes “economic growth” fueled by incessant money printing is the solution to the financial crisis. For this reason, Hollande’s election represents a break in that Franco-German alliance.
This will ultimately bolster German strength and resolve. With the lynchpin Franco-German partnership effectively broken, German Chancellor Angela Merkel has begun making grand overtures to Italian Prime Minister Mario Monti. While France strove to position Germany as Europe’s economic engine but not at the political helm, Italy will be much more accommodating to Berlin’s leadership ambitions. The geopolitical romance now burgeoning between Germany and Italy will blossom into a partnership in the image and likeness of the old Berlin-Rome Axis of 1939.
So, should we start paying attention?
I think so. As I wrote not too long ago, there is a seething undercurrent of resentment building in the EU against Germany…and Germany reciprocates that resentment. Noted in the German paper Spiegel, the German Interior Minister stated:
In a Saturday interview with the daily Leipziger Volkszeitung, German Interior Minister Hans-Peter Friedrich hinted at his country’s growing frustration. “We’re not willing to pour money into a bottomless pit,” he said after assuring the paper that Germany was happy to help Greece help itself. “Anyone who wants to see help and solidarity from us has to accept that we expect from that country a certain amount of seriousness and a certain amount of reasonableness.”
We had a brief discussion of this before but Europe is fast becoming a tinderbox that any spark will ignite. Personally, I think it will start with a highly visible, highly effective terrorist attack somewhere in a Muslim fearing county like France…
