In 2013 there were more cars burned than in 2017. And its not Muslims burning cars, rather its local socialist political parties and traditional and extreme right policical parties. And "setting vehicles alight (in France) has been a big feature of riots and clashes between young people and the police in France since at least the 1980s."

Instead of trying to spread paranoia and fear with Fox news style propaganda techniques and then manipulating news stories to do it, why not have a honest conversation about how we can reduce terrorist attacks in America?

Fourteen Propaganda Techniques Fox "News" Uses to Brainwash Americans
That is a complete lie, the right in france is not out burning cars in neighborhoods, that is a total lie. These are immigrants from Frances suburbs who are out making it a tradition, hopefully the beating of cops and worse rioting doesnt become a "tradition"

Before anyone says they are "french" they are no more "French" than the Mexicans waving their flags in Pasadena,Los angeles etc at US vs Mexico soccer matches (americans are usually outnumbered) or obnoxious "dreamers" waving Mexican flags at protests are Americans.

There loyalty is not to the united states and you are kidding yourself if you say they are. These people waving mexican flags in san jose California as they attack republicans at a rally are not Americans either and this shows what the future is going to be with immigration and amnesty and demographic change

Hundreds of cars torched in France - World news - Europe | NBC News

From the first anniversary of the riots, back when the news actually reported facts.

“Still the Interior Ministry describe the night as ‘relative calm,’ noting that up to 100 cars are torched by youths in troubled neighborhoods on an average night.”

“The rioting was fueled by anger at France’s failure to offer equal opportunities to many minorities — especially Arabs and blacks — and France’s 5 million-strong Muslim population.”

"Burning cars is a tradition in France" and "the main burning season is in July and August, particularly on Bastille Day on July 14th." And "the custom of setting vehicles alight on New Year's Eve reportedly began in the east of the country, around Strasbourg, in the 1990s."

Increases in car burnings are attributed to political conflicts between Frances "Socialist party and challengers from both the traditional and extreme right."

But perhaps you are partly correct because "Frances far-right National Front (recently) put out a statement on the car burnings, condemning the “laxity” of past decades."
https://qz.com/877789/french-car-bur...in-four-years/

But regardless whether its Frances liberals or conservatives burning the most cars (its not Muslim immigrants burning the cars.)

I grew up around several South American families who's parents came from South America, and their children (my friends) are 100% American citizens. And during soccer games they pull out Mexican flags and yell in Spanish.

My South American friends who sometimes pull out the Mexican flag are more American than us, because they better understand the true meaning of our constitution and "the great melting pot." And my South American friends have defended me in fights and showed me a lifelong hospitality that I perhaps only see in white people who are my family.

And even in our 40's they still pull out Mexican flags and yell in Spanish during soccer games. But my mother and Aunt were both born in Germany and members of my family have been known to sometimes pull out the German flag.

When Germany is doing well in the Olympics my mom is yelling in German and she puts a German flag outside her house. But since my mom has blonde hair and blue eyes you don't care about her waving foreign flags or yelling in foreign languages during sporting events.

Why do your South American friends pull out Mexican flags during soccer matches rather than root for their home countries? You do know that Mexico is not in South America.

Both of my parents immigrated from Argentina and they took great pride in assimilating, speaking predominately English at home. Although they were not into sports I doubt they would be cheering in Spanish and waving a Mexican flag, lol. Being from Argentina they may have cheered an Argentinian team. Your conflating South Americans with Mexicans is odd.

Its not french right wingers burning cars and it not german americans waving german flags at protests and attacking republicans like the mexicans did in san jose. Hell, some Germand and japanese loyalists were put in camps during w2

Americans are usually outnumbered at us/mexico soccer matches with mexican nationals on our own soil, these are not even home matches!

And mexico is no melting pot, they are very nationalistic and actually quite anti immigrant in their own country. The comical part is how America are supposed to be multicultural yet when you look at other nations, many are fiercely nationalistic, ethnocentric and few favor multiculturalism and immigration in their own homelands

The last time Paris was burning, who was behind it?

You folks shouldn't assume we're all going to put our heads up our behinds simply because you choose to live that way.

Someone posts something and you start some side show conversation - 'oh look at this shiny thing over here instead and it's all our fault so we're far worse.'

If you can't keep up with the news and cannot comprehend what the thread topic is about, what makes you think you have something to contribute?

Marine le pen makes a good point police need to be able to defend themselves. Women police officer should not be put in these positions in these suburbs



translation

The scum attacks those who protect us, our leaders let it, and only the FN defends them! Let's rehabilitate our # policemen legally by reforming self-defense!

Video very unfortunate to the French
Today you pay the price for the mistakes of your policies by opening the door to immigrants, especially Muslims
Who will destroy the beauty of your cities
And your wives and wives
You have to get up from your sleep and know that France is for Frenchmen
He does not want to become a Frenchman who goes to the land of hunger and to the land of the Black Stone

I was just about to post the video of the attack on youtube but the liberal censors at google have banned it within minutes . Amazing how fast the youtube censors work

WOW !

Scary!

Especially when you probably fell out of your "Archie Bunker" chair watching this !



Were you just as scared when you saw whites protesting at the Occupy Wall Street or the Seattle WTO events?
