Response to DFW (Reply #29)

32. I was responding to someone who expressed concern about the loss of free travel

as a possible implication of the French Presidential election.
If you are worried about the end of open borders, the defeat of a leader who promised or threatened to end them should be good news.

I could be a dick right now and ask you if you also support Sarkozy's roundup of Roma - commonly known in English as "Gypsies". Ethnic scapegoating of "undesirables" in the land of the Vel d'Hiv and Drancy isn't waiting on the further success of the National Runts, it has already begun. It has also started in Italy under the neofascist P2 ex-President (doh, scratch that - exPrime Minister) Berlusconi with mass fingerprinting and expulsions (city of Verona), and also in Hungary just to mention instances that I know of. And if I was living on the continent, I'm sure I'd be able to point out even more such instances.

Many observers point out the connection between the imposition of austerity across Europe and Sarkozy's "closed borders" intentions. Knowing he is (or was) about to create millions of economic refugees, it is a logical step for him to put up the barbed wire and sentry huts to keep them out.
