The schism of pro- and anti-Front National is grounded less and less in political differences. Instead, the conflict increasingly takes the form of a sheer political polarity. For FN supporters, the immigrant is the figure that is undermining French culture, through his unwillingness to respect the ways things are done. Immigrants don’t want to integrate; they don’t respect France.
The President of the United States announced that refugees fleeing persecution by a totalitarian regime would be deported. It did not matter that they had risked their lives to come here. They would be sent back. No leftist lawyers crammed airports. No protesters chanted at terminals. No celebrities offered sanctimonious lectures about “who we are”. No one dared to call the lying thug behind it un-American.
Timidity in the face of barbarity. We’ve seen this pattern increasing across Europe as the 2015 wave of massive Muslim immigration has led to jihadist attacks and fear of attacks. Here was a case not so much of a specific threat as it was the native Dutch citizens deciding they simply didn’t want their elementary school children to experience an atmosphere of unease during a town Christmas festival.
By preventing a Hillary Clinton administration we’ve dodged a potentially fatal bullet to American democracy, but the mere act of electing Donald Trump won’t automatically make anything better. What we will have, however, is a real opportunity to address the crippling, urgent problem of illegal immigration – which for the first time ever became a high-profile campaign issue in U.S. elections.
This open letter was submitted by a reader of Ann Corcoran’s invaluable Refugee Resettlement Watch blog yesterday in anticipation of Donald Trump’s visit to that state on Monday. Written by a grandmother who’s lived in the state long enough to watch it decline from the auto capital of the world to a third world country pumped with resettled, unvetted Muslims on welfare or in low wage jobs, is highly worth reading.

The Washington Examiner reported last week that “at 42.4 million, there are now more immigrants, legal and illegal, in America than ever before, fueled by a massive flood from Muslim nations….And while the doors remain open on the U.S.-Mexico border, the biggest percentage increases in immigration are all from largely Muslim nations.” What could possibly go wrong? Hillary Clinton knows, as she revealed in a 2013 email that makes her current public position on immigration absolutely inexplicable.
