Here's a little photo essay -- two pix that tell a story that politically correct politicians refuse to hear.
French villagers are protesting the arrival of migrants who are being dispersed around the country as the government shuts down the slum-like camp in Calais that has become a flashpoint in Europe's migrant crisis.
Yesterday, the mayor of Pierrefeu -- a village in southeastern France -- led several hundred people [Possibly the majority of local residents, from the looks of it! Ed.] into the street to protest a proposal of the socialist government of (((François Hollande))) to house "migrants" (read: "refugees") in an abandoned wing of a psychiatric hospital while they apply for asylum or study other options, such as figuring out how to get to Britain or Germany.
The banner reads "Pierrefeu says no to the creation of a reception centre for migrants". Another banner says simply "Pas de migrants dans nos villages!", which Walt thinks needs no translation.
Why do the good burghers of Pierrefeu (and every other village, town and city in France) feel that way? Take a look at this.
This is a picture -- not the worst one to be revealed by a simple Google search -- of the "migrant" camp in Calais, just across the English Channel from Old Blighty. President Hollande has promised that this camp will be dismantled by the end of this year. But the asylum-seekers have to go somewhere, so spread them around France like Nutella on a baguette and hope that they won't be so noticeable and so unwelcome. Unfortunately for M le Président, his people noticed!
