Riot police firing tear gas and brandishing batons clashed Tuesday with bands of youths who shattered windows and looted shops at a major Paris train station, officials said. Nine people were arrested.A generic term like "youth" is Orwellian speak for some group deemed unassailable by Western media elites. If they were members of Le Pen's National Front doing the rioting, rest assured we'd get a descriptor more precise than that. Digging a little further, the obvious is insinuated:
The train lines from Gare du Nord radiate out to the same suburbs north of Paris where three weeks of rioting erupted in 2005. That violence was born of pent-up anger - especially among youths of Arab and African origin - over years of high unemployment and racial inequalities.The first step in ameliorating this problem is to cut off immigration from North Africa and the Middle East into Europe, especially France which, with somewhere in the area of 4 million Muslims originating from these places, is saddled with parallel societies hostile and parasitic to the host country.
Youths at the station said Tuesday's clashes started when police manhandled a young person of North African origin. Some claimed that the youth's arm was broken in the confrontation.
The AP story conveys the words of a witness who fallaciously believes that the perpetual rioting has become more tame since 2005, yet 2006 was even more destructive than the previous year when the phenomenon received international attention. But the sensational becomes the norm over time, whether the topic be Hispanic gang activity in the US, Palestinian terrorist activity in Israel, rapacious land redistributions in southern Africa, the destruction of private property rights in Latin America, the deaths of US soldiers to IEDs in Iraq, or the swarthy underclass destruction in France. All of these things were initially shocking, but have now more or less come to be considered the usual.
None of the above need continue, however. Like frogs in a boiler, we resign to accept them as inevitable at our own peril.
